Walgreens 5/15 Show & Tell

by Kimberly on May 15, 2011

Here is what I bought at Walgreens tonight. Walgreens can be a little tricky to shop at. Once you learn the rules…you will save BUNDLES of money. Basically you have to buy things in separate transactions and use the Register Rewards (RR) that you get from one transaction to help pay for the next. You will see in this Show & Tell EXACTLY what order my transactions were in and what coupons I used.

**TIPS for shopping at Walgreens:**
1) Always give the cashier your MQ FIRST and Walgreens Coupons LAST
2) When buying multiple identical products offering RR, purchase them in SEPERATE transactions. (If you purchase more than 1 in a transaction you will only get 1 RR)
3) Do not use the RR you receive from a product to go towards the purchase price of another IDENTICAL product, as you will also not receive another RR. (Ex. If they’re offering a $5 RR for Pro-Glide Razors you will not want to use that $5RR towards another Pro-Glide Razor because you will NOT receive another RR. Purchase them in seperate transactions and use the RR for other items that are NOT identical)
4) RR can NOT be used towards the purchase of Dairy or Gift Cards
5) Remember you can never have more coupons than items at Walgreens, so grab something cheap (a ‘filler’) that is $0.50 or less to make up for any extra coupons
6) RR do have an expiration date on them, so make sure you use them before they expire.
7) “Profit” refers to you receiving more in RR than you spend. It does NOT mean you get cash back.
Red = Manufacturer Coupons
Green = Store Coupons
