I love Walgreens

Three stores and 8 transactions later, I am $80 richer in Register Rewards.  I used up the rest of my meter coupons – man, I wish I had purchased more!

These RRs will be great tomorrow – I plan to use them to get some bodywash and deodorant for DH.  I will also be getting some Super Poligrip – because its a money maker 🙂  I wonder if the local senior center would want them?

Here’s how my transactions will go (I will repeat this 8 times to get everything I need):

1 Dove Men+Care = $5.99
1 Old Spice deodorant = $3.49
1 Super Poligrip = $2

Subtotal = 11.48

– $1 Poligrip coupon
-$10 RR from Bayer deal
=$.48 + tax (on Walgreen’s gift card).

I should get back $9 in RRs ($6 from Dove, $2 from Poligrip, and $1 from deodorant.  So each transaction is a net cost of $1.50.  Not too bad.  We really need to stock up on some new deodorant for DH.

    Sam, what happens if you return an item you received RR for? What if you’ve already spent the RR? For example, if you buy 10 meters and get X number of RR, spend your RR, then return the meters? Is this a loop hole in the system? Curious.

      You have to have your receipt to return items. The receipt will show that you purchased the item during the time it was on sale. Most managers will not allow the return if its something that was free after RR (unless you give the RR back). It would be kind of considered stealing otherwise.

    Out of curiosity why do you keep buying diabetes meters?? Donating them to a diabetic org?

      I keep buying them because they make me money. I either find places to donate them (local shelters, clinics, etc), give some to my uncle, or sell some in the garage sale. Its completely worth picking up one (or 20) when they pay me $10 to take each one out of the store.
