Shopping Scenario Sunday, March 30: WALGREENS

I'm going to highlight the Register Rewards available this week, 3/30-4/5 at Walgreens - there are many good ones!

*Note: Register Rewards are a printed coupon at point of sale that works as cash toward your next purchase at Walgreens. You CANNOT use a Register Reward from one promotion toward doing the same promotion again; if you want to "roll" your Register Reward during the same week into a new Register Reward, you'll have to do so by using the first Register Reward (let's call this promotion A) to purchase products on a different Register Reward promotion (let's call this one B).

In a nutshell, this is how to roll over Walgreens Register Rewards during the same week:

Buy products for Promotion A, earn Register Reward $ from Promotion A (paying with cash, older Register Rewards from the previous week, or with Monthly Easy Saver Rebate generated Gift Card $$); then,

Buy products from Promotion B, pay with Register Reward from Promotion A, and earn new Register Reward $ from Promotion B; then,

Buy another set of products from Promotion A, earning new Register Reward $ from Promotion A, and paying for products with Register Rewards from Promotion B.

You can do this as many times as you like to better your deal. And of course, using coupons on the products in the promotions will sweeten the deal even further.



Buy $10 of participating P&G products, earn $4.00 in Register Rewards.

Buy $50 of participating P&G products, earn a total of $20.00 Register Rewards and earn a bonus $5.00 Register Reward - a total of $25.00 in Register Rewards!

Buy 7 Febreeze Noticeable Starter Kits for $7.00 ea
*Use (7) $3/1 coupon from 3/2 P&G Insert

Buy 1 Febreeze Air Effects for $2.50
*Use (1) $1/1 coupon from 3/2 P&G Insert

Total Cost: $51.50

Total OOP (Out Of Pocket) after coupons (these expire on 3/31, so get this deal now!): $29.50

Total Register Rewards Earned: $25.00

There are numerous P&G products available for this RR; check the ad at Walgreens to see what works best for you. All the P&G coupons from both the February 10 insert and the March 2 insert expire 3/31/08, so you'll need to flip your deal soon!
