I went to Walgreens this morning since I had $22 in Register Rewards set to expire today. I had a very successful trip! Here’s what I got:

Transaction 1

Physicians Formula Tinted Moisturizer (came with FREE mascara in package, found in new make-up display area not where the Physician’s Formula products are on the wall)
I debated waiting for a sale to happen on the Physician’s Formula this month since the rebate is good all month but decided to buy this since the mascara was packaged with it for FREE and I didn’t know how long they would have this special package in stock.
On sale for $11.99
Used $1 off coupon from February 22, 2009 newspaper
Paid $10.99 out of pocket
Submitted as rebate online from new April Easy Saver Rebate Catalog and will get $10 back
Paid $1.99 for tinted moisturizer AND mascara!

Pringles Super Stack, 2 for $4
Used in-ad coupon to make it 2 for $3
Used $1 off 2 from 3/15 newspaper
Paid $2.00 for 2 super stacks of Pringles

Softsoap Body Wash
On sale for $3.99
Used $1.50 off coupon from CVS Reinventing Beauty Book for this month (costs $.99 and is full of coupons)
Received Register Reward for FREE Softsoap Body Wash on next visit
(TIP: It is being reported that this deal “rolls” as of right now. This means that when I go to buy my FREE Softsoap another coupon for a FREE Softsoap will print and so on.)

Cottonelle Wipes, 84 ct refill
On sale for $5.29 each
Used in-ad coupon to make them 2 for $5.00
Used 2 coupons for .50 off from today’s paper
Paid $4.00 for 2 84 ct refill packs

Glade Soy Candle
On sale for $6.49
Used 2.00 off coupon from April Easy Saver booklet in store
Used $4.00 off coupon printed when I joined Glade at Home
Paid $.49 for the candle

Edge Infused Energy Shave Gel
On sale for $2.99
Paid $2.99 received $3 in Register Rewards

Total was $10.44 after I used my $16 in Register Rewards. I used my Walgreens gift card from the February Easy Saver Rebates and paid 0 out of pocket. Remember, I’ll still get $10.00 back in rebates from the Physician’s Formula make-up!

Transaction 2

Glade Soy Candle
On sale for $6.49
Used 2.00 off coupon from April Easy Saver booklet in store
Used $4.00 off coupon printed when I joined Glade at Home
Paid $.49 for the candle

Skintimate Shave Gel
On sale for $2.49
Paid $2.49 and received $3 in Register Rewards back

Total was $3.17. I used Walgreens gift card from February Easy Saver Rebates and paid 0 out of pocket!

Why did I do 2 transactions? The Edge and Skintimate Register Rewards deals are related so you won’t get rewards for both if you buy them in one transaction. Remember, you can’t buy the same product with a Register Reward that you got for buying that item. For example, if I wanted more Skintimate (deal is good all month) then I couldn’t use my Register Reward from today for the Skintimate (or the Edge) to buy it again – the Register Rewards won’t print if you do that.

Do register rewards just show up? You’ve don’t need a reward card for this at walgreens, like you do at CVS, do you? thanks for all of your great blog postings! I’ve saved so much since I’ve started visiting your site!

Thanks for reading and for the compliment, Meg. You are correct – there is no rewards card for Walgreens. Register Rewards print from a separate machine than your receipt and usually print just after your complete receipt has printed.

Hi there! My Walgreens did not have the glade candles on sale, they were $9.99. I guess I will go back and have them check the price and maybe they were not marked? What do you think?

4 Nicole @ Nicole's Nickels March 29, 2009 at 8:15 pm

Hi Shannon! There are 2 sizes of those candles. My Wags had both sizes and the small ones are $5.99. It’s their regular price. The printable coupon expires in the middle of April and I wasn’t sure if they will be going on sale before then this month. So I decided it was worth it for the $.49 – they smell delicious! The smaller candles were on the shelf just above the large ones in my store.

FYI – I know you’ve already bought your $10 in PF makeup but there is also a rebate for Physician’s Formula Organic Wear mascara here: maybe some others will be able to work this one in their deals.

Thanks, April. I posted about the try me free masacar rebate a few weeks ago!
