Get Your Behind to Walgreen's!

You guys seriously need to get to Walgreens. I did 2 awesome transactions today. DO NOT scroll down to find out how much I paid for all this stuff before reading the whole entry; that's cheating :)

So, here's Transaction #1:
$25.47 ($8.49 X 3): 3 boxes of Benefiber Kiwi Strawberry drink mixes
$4.99: 1 Alka Seltzer Plus Cold, Plain
$4.00: Quilted Northern, Ultra Plush, 6 pack
$6.99: Almay One Coat Mascara
$5.98: 2 Rolls Scotch Packing Tape, 2 X 800 size

Total before Coupons
$47.43

-$15 (3 X $5) Benefiber store coupon from October Easysaver book
-$4 2 Benefiber manufacturer coupons from recent newspaper insert (if you have 3, even better)
-$2.99 coupon from weekly ad for scotch tape
-$1 Quilted Northern store coupon from October Easysaver book
-$1 Quilted Northern printable coupon (or I used the ones I got from the Race for the Cure!)
-$1 Alka Seltzer Plus Cold printable coupon
- $1 Almay coupon from recent newspaper insert

Total after initial Coupons
$21.44


-$5 off $20 Walgreens coupon here or here
+$.82 tax

Final Total
$17.26 + $13 in Register Rewards ($8 for the Benefiber & $5 for the Alka Seltzer to be used with your next purchase)


Transaction #2
$19.99: L’Oreal Pro-calcium Radiance Perfector
$1 Halloween Mask
$10.36: Lindt 70% Dark Chocolate Bars (no dairy or soy!)
$4.00: Quilted Northern, Ultra Plush, 6 pack

Total before Coupons
$35.35


-$1 Quilted Northern store coupon from October Easysaver book
-$1 Quilted Northern printable coupon
-$4 (4 X $1) Lindt Chocolate coupon from October Easysaver book
-$1 L’Oreal manufacturer coupons from recent newspaper insert

Total after initial Coupons
$28.35


-$5 off $20 Walgreens coupon here or here
-$5 in Register Rewards that I cashed in
+$.60 tax

Final Total
$18.94

So for a total of $36.20, I got:
1 L’Oreal Pro-calcium Radiance Perfector lotion
1 Halloween Mask
4 Lindt Chocolate Bars (no dairy or soy!)
12 rolls Quilted Northern, Ultra Plush
3 boxes of Benefiber Kiwi Strawberry drink mixes (which I plan on donating)
1 20-ct box of Alka Seltzer Plus Cold, Plain (which I plan on donating)
1 Almay One Coat Mascara (for me! I’m out)
2 Rolls Scotch Packing Tape, 2 X 800 size

But! I didn’t really spend $36.20 because I still have $8 in Register Rewards to spend later; plus, the lotion ($19.99) and mascara ($6.99) are free after the November EasySaver rebate (yesterday and today are "overlap" days where October & November EasySaver books collide), and they reimburse you for the pre-coupon total. So how much did I spend, out of pocket, for all of the above?


$1.22!! I win!



BUT it gets even better
. If you let Walgreens give your rebate back on a Walgreens gift card, they'll give you an extra 10%. I always do this and just use the card for future rebates. So if I get my rebates on a gift card, they actually paid me $1.47 for my purchases.


I seriously win!

Here's my loot:


It would have been even better if they weren't out of Pert Plus. They paid me a penny for the Pert Plus I got the other day. The deal ends today, though; check it out here.

If you want another good deal, print out the coupon (it will let you print 2) over at St. Ives and ask the Walgreen’s folks for next month’s EasySaver book. You can get 2 body washes for $1.03.

Fantastic deals! I'm glad that you can eat the chocolate, too! :)

I hit up WAGs yesterday, and had a great time double dipping - but I forgot about the Quilted Northern coupons! Duh!!

Also, there was a Free after rebate Chapstick offer from the newspaper I could have incorporated, but I didn't have the coupon with me, and I thought it was only for "Shimmer". Oops!

Way to go Brenna! We have a Walgreens at the top of our street now so I'm in there often. I'll have to start paying closer attention to deals and start buying the Sunday paper for the coupons I guess. I got out out of the habit awhile ago; time to jump back in!
