My Shopping Trips: Walgreens (10/21)

I am so excited about having a Walgreens close by. I didn't have access to one in my other city.

I am starting out slowly by getting the things for free or cheap. I eventually will start doing the Register Reward program once I have the money to spare.

I would like to start off with about $30 OOP from my budget. I plan on making this happen at the end of the month when I need a prescription transferred. I talked to the pharmacy and they said that they would take Rite Aids $25 gift card coupon for a transferred prescription as a competitor and this is how I will be able to only have to pay $5 or so OOP when I start getting the register rewards deals!

For now...I'll just be patient with the freebies and cheap items!

Here is what I bought...

4 Air Wick Compact I Motions @ $3.99 each
Used: $4/1 coupons from the 10/11 SS insert
Price: FREE plus $.04 in overage

Tip: The last coupon did beep but the manager did an override on it for the full amount of $4! (wasn't expecting that)

2 cans of black olives @ $.99 (with in-ad coupon)
Used: $1/2 printable here or the $1/2 from the September 2009 Family Circle magazine.
Price: $.49 each

2 Starbucks Frappachinos @ $1.29 (with in-ad coupon)
Used: $1/1 coupon here
Price: $.29 each
(I didn't care too much for this product. I am not a coffee/cappucino drinker so I guess that's why? I still enjoyed being able to try a new product out for so cheap!)

1 Swivatel Fabric Softener @ $1.99 (with in-ad coupon)
Price: $1.99
I love the way this stuff smells!

2 Halloween Pencils (for fillers) @ $.12 each (to cover the amount of coupons I had versus products)

Total Before Sales & Coupons: $44.99
Total After Sales & Coupons: $5.25

Not Totally free but worth $5 definitely!

Question: I asked my Walgreens Pharmacy and the manager about the Healthy Savings Coupon Booklet and they had no clue what I was talking about! I found coupons in their free diabetes freebie magazine but not the booklet. If anyone can give me a little more information on it and how long ago you found it in the store please let me know! Thanks, Lissa!

Question: If you or a website that you visit has a great tutorial on Walgreens I would love to share the information. I had a sister-in-law that works for them...so I have already drilled her with questions and think that I get it but I would still love to read and share an article if you know about one! Thanks, Lissa

Check out "It's Hip to Save" blog. She posted a video a couple of weeks ago in which she did a couple of transactions at Walgreens. I found it super helpful!

I found the Healthy Savings booklet yesterday. It was in the same place that the weekly ad and the coupon booklet were at the front of the store. It is a wider booklet than the other, white, with a family on the front dressed in coats and scarves. It has lots of great coupons in it that don't expire until 12/31. Good luck!
