by Kimberly on July 6, 2011

Well, I made it back to Walgreens tonight. I was determined to score some FREE Oral-B toothbrushes! Below is a list of EXACTLY what i bought, what coupons I used and what order I did my transactions in. The items bought coincide with the Walgreens sale 7/3-7/9 (except the aluminum foil which I used a raincheck for). If you are new to shopping at Walgreens there will be ‘A Few Tips to Shopping at Walgreens’ at the very bottom of this post.

Remember YOU CAN DO THIS TOO!!

**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.
Walgreens In-Ad coupons DO NOT count as coupons in your coupon count…they basically just adjust the price of the item.
