Walgreens: Beginning Transactions (Includes Test Market)

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

New to shopping at Walgreens?  Knowing how to use those Register Rewards can be quite overwhelming, but that’s where I come in.  Below you will find out to run a few transactions to put your money to work for you.  Since many of the coupons that are in the matchups expire tomorrow, July 31st, I didn’t include them here (in case you can’t get there in time).  I did list ONE super deal for you — just in case you shop on Sunday!

Oh — and if you live within the test market regions (Kansas City, Portland or Richmond), you can even find some deals for you here as well!

NON-TEST MARKET TRANSACTIONS

TRANSACTION #1

$ 2.00 Crayola Washable Markers, 8 ct
$2.00 out of pocket + recieve $2 in RR

TRANSACTION #2

$ 2.00 Good HairProduct
–  2.00 RR earned from Transaction #1
$0.00 out of pocket + receive $2 in RR

TRANSACTION #3

$ 5.00 2 Oral-B Advantage Toothbrushes
    2.00 Crayola Washable Markers, 8 ct
–  4.00 2 $2/1 Oral-B Toothbrushes 7/3/2011 P&G Insert — EXPIRES 7/31/2011
–  2.00 RR Earned from Tranaction #2
$1.00 out of pocket + receive $2 in RR for Oral-B and $2 in RR for Markers

or

$ 5.00 2 Crest Toothpastes
    0.11  Wexford Folder (using as a filler item)
–  1.50 2 $0.75/1 Crest Toothpaste 7/31/2011 P&G Insert 
–  2.00 RR Earned from Tranaction #2
$1.61  + receive $2 in RR

You will then have purchased:

Goody Hair Colour Products
2 Crayola Washable Markers
2 Oral-B Toothbrushes

(or – if you don’t shop on Sunday to use the Oral-B coupon — you will have only 1 Crayola Marker, 1 Folder and 2 Crest toothpastes)

The total you will have paid out of your own pocket will be $3.61 and you will have $4 in RR to spend, making it a net PROFIT of $0.39 for all of these items!

TEST MARKET REGION

$ 2.00 Good HairProduct
$2.00 out of pocket + receive $2 in RR

TRANSACTION #2

$ 5.00 2 Oral-B Advantage Toothbrushes
    2.00 Crayola Washable Markers, 8 ct
–  4.00 2 $2/1 Oral-B Toothbrushes 7/3/2011 P&G Insert — EXPIRES 7/31/2011

$1.00 out of pocket + receive $2 in RR for toothbrushes and 600 points for Crayola Markers

or

$ 5.00 2 Crest Toothpastes

In these scenarios, you will have purchased:

2 Oral-B Toothbrushes

(If purchasing after Sunday, then would have 2 Crest Toothpastes and a folder rather than Crayola Markers & toothbrushes)

You will have paid a total of  $3.61 out of pocket and still have $2 in RR, netting a total of $1.61 spent.  You will also have 600 points to use towards the required 2000 points for a $5 coupon (which equates to $1.50) — if you are able to grab those Crayola Markers.

You can find all of this week’s Walgreens Matchups here on Penny Pinchin’ Mom!

    Walgreens lost me with the new reward structure – I just don’t care to work that hard for stuff, I just go to CVS now.
