Walgreens 4/12-4/18

by Nicole on April 12, 2009

As usual, Karen over at Frugal RI Mama has all the Walgreens deals for you. I’ll put some highlights below but to read the full list check out her post here.

Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner, On Sale 2/$2.99
Use $1.00 cpn in 3/15 insert
Final Cost: $1.49 for 2

Skippy Peanut Butter 2/$2.29
Use $1/2 cpn in 4/5 RP insert
Final Cost: $1.29 for 2

Coffee Mate 16oz liquid, On Sale 2/$3.00
se $1.00 printable coupon
Final Cost” $0.50 each

There are also 4 “FREE after RR” items this week and I went this morning and got them all! I did 2 transactions because I wanted to use the Skintimate RR I got this month and also wanted to buy the Edge shave gel – because these 2 are the same RR deals, you can’t use the RR from Skintimate or Edge to buy another one.

Transaction 1
Colgate Max Fresh Toothbrush, On Sale $3.49, Get a $3.49 RR
I used a $.75 off coupon on any Colgate toothbrush
Final Cost” FREE + $.75 overage after RR

Fiber Choice 10 ct Tablets, On Sale $2.49, Get a $2.49 RR
Final Cost: FREE after RR

Used the $3 Skintimate RR from previous week, and paid for the $2.25 balance with my Walgreens giftcard from my February Easy Saver Rebates
Paid 0 OOP and got $6 in RR (they always round these up for some reason)

Transction 2
Skintimate or Edge Shave Gel, On Sale $2.99, Get $2.99 RR
Final Cost: FREE after RR

Scunci Elastics 18 pk, On Sale $2.00 Get a $2 RR
Final Cost: FREE after RR

Chex Mix, On sale for $.98
Used $.50 off coupon from newspaper
Final Cost: $.48 per bag, bought 2 bags and used 2 coupons

Used $3.50 RR from previous week and paid for the $2.80 balance with my Walgreens giftcard from my February Easy Saver Rebates
Paid 0 OOP and got $5 in RR (they always round these up for some reason)

In the end, I walked out with 6 items, paid nothing out of pocket and have $11 in RR to spend!

TIP: You could have split this into more transactions to use the RR’s you received in the very next transaction (i.e. buy the Fiber Choice and then use the RR’s received to buy the toothbrush, etc.). There was a long line behind me and I have the Walgreens giftcard from February’s rebates still so I decided to use that instead of separating my items into 5 transactions which would have caused me to use less money from the giftcard.
