Crazy deals at Walgreen's

I hit some great deals today at Walgreen's. I got a "check" for $25 if I transferred a prescription to Walgreen's. In the past I was able to get a gift card for these transfers. When I presented the check today at the pharmacy they told me that I needed to use it on one purchase on the same date. Knowing that I had $11 in register rewards to use today, I needed to spend $36 in the store after coupons. Luckily I was without kids and had plenty of time because I really had to concentrate.

My plan of attack was to get the things I needed this week, then try to take advantage products that would produce register rewards so I could use them next weeks on things i really needed. Here is what I ended up with.

6 Ragu $1.67 with ad coupon, used $0.75/2 MQ, got $4 RR with buying 6. (there are only 4 in the picture because I traded 2 Ragu for 1 Mayo with a friend)

4 Kleenex 2/$2.19 with ad coupon, used $0.50/3 MQ and a buy 3 get one free MQ (which took off $1.99 at the register)

1 Gillette Fusion razor $8.99, used $4 MQ, got a $6 RR

1 walgreen's brand plaque dental rinse $3.99

1 Walgreen's paper plates $0.99 with ad coupon

3 Bandaid's $1.99 with ad coupon, $2 walgreen's coupon from coloring book (so free)

4 Campbell's cream of chicken soup $1.59/2, used $1/2 IP

1 Vaseline Lotion $6.99, got $7 RR

4 boxes Quaker granola bars $2.50 each, used $1/2 IP, got $5 RR for buying $10 worth

1 Walgreen's aspirin $1.29, walgreen's coupon to get free (got in the mail)

2 Energizer batteries $3 each, used $1 MQ on each

1 Energizer advanced batteries, got free when you buy 2 packs of Energizer batteries

My total before coupons was over $79. After the coupons, the $11 in Register rewards from last week and the $25 gift check my total was only $5.47!!! I saved $70.46 in ad and coupons. And the best part is that I also earned $22 in register rewards to spend next week!!! Yippee!!

How did you do this week??

  1. Wow, that WAS crazy! Good job! That is hard to do on the spot, so good thing you had some time to think about it. I can't believe you still earned $22.
