Walgreens Shopping Scenario for 6/29 | Starbucks, Crystal Light, Glade, Toothbrushes!

I am pretty excited about the free goodies this week at Walgreens starting 6/29 – so excited that I just finished working out my shopping scenario and I wanted to share it with you guys!  This scenario uses only printable coupons – so anyone with a printer can do it.  In the end, you’ll pay $2.88 for over $17 in items :)

beginner-tips

  • At Walgreens, you can’t use the Regiseter Reward from Brand X to pay for another Brand X item (i.e. $1 RR from Starbucks to buy another Starbucks). If you do, it will prevent the next Register Reward from printing. (It will “suppress” it)  That’s why we switch off using different register rewards for different items we buy.
    .
  • Also – you cannot use more than *1* manufacturer coupon per item – and Walgreens Register Rewards count as a manufacturer coupon.  We add inexpensive “filler items” to our purchase so we’re able to use both a regular coupon and a Register Reward.
    .
  • Lastly, when doing multiple transactions, it’s best to check out in cosmetics where there’s less chance of an angry mob forming behind you.  If you notice a line forming – finish the transaction you’re on and head to the back of the line to finish the rest of them.  (That’s what I do anyway – it’s up to you in the end.)
