walgreens_logo1 Walgreens Scenario for TODAY only for Newbie Couponers

So I finally did my Walgreens shopping last night and I wanted to post a scenario so that some of you Newbie Couponers who want to learn how to roll deals or who have never even done a single transaction, can do just that so you can get the extreme coupon fever.  This deal involves using Register Rewards to obtain these deals.  First of all before I give you the scenarios that you are going to do, I am going to give you some rules for using Register Rewards:

  1. You can only EARN one Register Reward for the item purchased PER TRANSACTION.  That means if there is a Register Reward for a product you will only earn 1 in a transaction, so if it earns a Register Reward you only purchase 1 alike item in a transaction.
  2. Register Rewards typically don’t “roll”.  Rolling is when you can continue to use the same Register Reward on the same product that produces it.  For the most part this is not the case, there are times when there are system glitches and you will hear that a Register Reward is “Rolling”, however under normal circumstances know that they don’t.
  3. The number of Manufacturers Coupons, Store Coupons and Register Rewards CANNOT exceed the number of items in your basket.  If you have 12 coupons/rewards and only 10 items in your transaction you will need to get a “filler” item.  Filler items are cheap items (i.e. candy or clearance) that you use to offset your item to coupon ratio.
  4. Register Rewards do not apply to tax
  5. Make sure you are matching the correct product with the tags when doing these transactions to ensure you get your rewards.

Okay now that we have the rules out of the way, here is the transaction that I want you to try tomorrow.  These transactions DO NOT require ANY coupons so you can just print this post out to print (print is the last option on the “share the love” bar at the bottom of this post)

FYI:  You can subtract items that you don’t or won’t use, but keep in mind that it will affect your bottom line unless you adjust both transactions.

Transaction 1:

Purchase Crest 3D Toothpaste on sale for $3.00 + get $3.00 back in Register Rewards
Purchase Herbal Essence Shampoo or Conditioner** on sale for $2.99 + get $3.00 back in Register Rewards
Purchase Blistex Lip Balm on sale for $2.00 + get back $2.00 in Register Rewards
Purchase Walgreens Brand Pads on sale for $1.99 + get back $2.00 in Register Rewards
Pay $9.99 + tax get back $10.00 in Register Rewards

**Print this for for a $15 Prepaid Visa wyb $50 of P&G Beauty Products (Mail-in Rebate) – Herbal Essence qualifies towards this rebate so be sure to save your receipts.

Transaction 2:

Purchase Reach Single or Double Pack Toothbrushes on sale for $3.00 + get $3.00 back in Register Rewards
Purchase 2 Packs of Scrunci’s on sale 2 for $3.00 + get back $3.00 in Register Rewards
Purchase Pure Moist Contact Solution on sale for $2.00 + get back $2.00 in Register Rewards
Purchase Flavored Protein Water on sale for $1.99 + get back $2.00 in Register Rewards
Pay using the $10.00 in Register Rewards you just received + tax AND Get back $10.00 in Register Rewards

Now if you are brave you can add in a coupon and a filler to transaction 2 as such:

Purchase Reach Single or Double Pack Toothbrushes on sale for $3.00 + get $3.00 back in Register Rewards
Purchase 2 Packs of Scrunci’s on sale 2 for $3.00 + get back $3.00 in Register Rewards
Purchase Pure Moist Contact Solution on sale for $2.00 + get back $2.00 in Register Rewards
Purchase Flavored Protein Water on sale for $1.99 + get back $2.00 in Register Rewards
Purchase a $0.75 Filler if you got the Single Reach Toothbrushes or a $1.50 Double Pack Toothbrushes
Use the following coupon (based upon the type of toothbrushes you purchased)
Use $0.75 off ANY ONE (1) REACH Toothbrush
OR Use $1.50 off REACH 2-pack or multi-pack toothbrushes
Pay using the $10.00 in Register Rewards you just received + tax AND Get back $10.00 in Register Rewards

If you stop here you pretty much break even because you spent $10 + tax the first transaction and you are walking away with $10.00 in Register Rewards to use in the future.  You can either hold onto these rewards to do next weeks shopping trip that I will be posting OR you can repeat the transactions a few more times to get more items.  Keep in mind you will be responsible for taxes.  So if you decided to repeat transaction 1 instead of paying with cash you would pay with the $10.00 in Register Rewards you earned from transaction 2 and still get back another $10.00 in Rewards after you pay the taxes.

Happy Shopping and please post pics on FB and tag me in it if you do this deal!
