My Walgreen's Transactions: $6.99 OOP Plus a $5 RR!

At Walgreen's I like to keep it simple. I try to choose 2 or 3 sets of products to swap between. This way, everything stays organized and don't get overwhelmed with register rewards, coupons, kids and everything else. Here are the 3 scenarios I will be swapping between:

TRANSACTION 1:

{BUY 2}Listerine Products 2/$8
Buy 2, Earn a $3 Register Reward
Use the following coupons:
(1) B1G1 Coupon from SS 8/2
(1) $1/1 from 6/14
Final Price: $3 OOP
Earn a $3 RR after paying

TRANSACTION 2:
{BUY 2}Sudafed $4.99
Buy 2, Earn a $5 Register Reward
Use (2) $2/1 (Sudafed PE) from SS 8/2
-Use the $3 RR to Pay from first transaction
Final Price: $3.00 OOP
Earn a $5 RR after paying

TRANSACTION 3:

{BUY 2}Listerine Products 2/$8
Buy 2, Earn a $3 Register Reward
Use the following coupons:
(1) B1G1 Coupon from SS 8/2
(1) $1/1 from 6/14
{BUY 1}Goody Ouchless Hair Accessory $2.99
Buy 1, Earn a $2 Register Reward
-Use the $5 RR from Transaction 2 to pay
Final Price OOP: $.99
Earn a $3 RR and a $2 RR after paying

Is every Walgreens different in their coupon/register receipt redemption policy? For example, at my store, for Transaction #2, you couldn't use 2 MQ's and 1 RR on only 2 products (total number of products has to equal the number of mq's + rr's used). How do you get around that? Thanks for the help!

walgreens stores are all the same. It's true you couldn't do transaction #2 without adding some sort of "filler" item to even out the number of coupons and items purchased.

your the best thanks for your commitment to helping others save so much money. Love your blog.

So a quick question for your walgreens veterans! For the new $5 RR when you purchase $25, can you use the ones earned last week and still get the $5RR? I must say, the deals are great at Wags, IF you have the patience for all their ridiculous rules! Its mind boggling at times to try to figure out what will or will not work!!

I just bought a Goody Ouchless Hairband and used a $1 printable coupon I'd had for it that expired today, which made it FREE once the RR is factored in! Not sure where I printed it off from...does anyone else know if it's still available to print online so others can take advantage of this too?

Amy- The promotion Walgreen's is running right now is a printable coupon, not a Register Reward- so in this case you can use your RR from last week and still use the $5 off coupon. The stipulation here is that you have to spend $25 before tax and after all manufacturer coupons. Hope this helps!

Sara- I saw this coupon several months ago, but I don't think there is a current one out. Great deal for you though!

Amy said...

Oh ok, I thought there was another promo starting Thursday where you got a $5 RR for spending $25, like the one last week. I guess I misunderstood.

ok thanks Taralee... as long as I've been couponing, this can still be confusing with all the different store policies
