by Nicole on April 26, 2009

This is a pretty good week at Walgreens so head on over to Karen the Frugal RI Mama’s post to see all of this week’s deals. Here are a few of the best followed by my trip to Walgreens this morning.

Ecotrin Tablets, On Sale $2.00, Get $2.00 RR
Use $2.25/1 printable coupon
Final Cost: FREE + $2.00 overage after RR

Rembrandt Toothpaste or Mouthwash, On Sale $5.99 Get $5.99 RR
Final Cost: FREE after RR

Rembrandt Toothpaste or Mouthwash, On Sale $5.99 Get $5.99 RR
Final Cost: FREE after RR

I separated my items into 4 transactions this morning. I don’t usually do this many transactions but the store wasn’t crowded and the cashier in the make-up department was one of the sympathetic ones who will work with me when things beep or don’t scan right.

Transaction 1
Nivea Body Wash, On sale for $4.99, Get $5 in RR
Used $1 coupon from 4/19 newspaper insert (there are also coupons in Nivea brochures in the CVS make-up department)
Paid $3.99

Hallmark Gift Wrap, On sale for $.69
Used Walgreens in-ad coupon to make the gift wrap $.39

I used the gift wrap as a filler since the register beeped when I tried to use a RR. Once I added the giftwrap (with the in-ad coupon) I could use a RR

Used $3.50 RR from Skintimate deal, paid $1.23 OOP, put on my Walgreens gift card from March easysaver rebates – got $5 RR

Transaction 2
Same items as Transaction 1 (Nivea Body wash and giftwrap)

Remember, you can’t use the RR from the Nivea in a transaction where you buy another Nivea

Used $3 RR from previous week
Paid $1.73 OOP, put on my Walgreens gift card from March easysaver rebates – got $5 RR

Transaction 3
Got2B Hair Stylers, On sale for 2/$10.00, get $5 RR when you buy 2
Bought 2
Used 2 of these printable coupons for $2.00 off
Paid $.50 for each after coupons and RR

Hallmark Gift Wrap, On sale for $.69
Used Walgreens in-ad coupon to make the gift wrap $.39

Used $5 RR from first transaction
Paid $2.07 OOP, put on my Walgreens gift card from March easysaver rebates – got $5 RR

Transaction 4

Used $5 RR from second transaction
Paid $.99 OOP, put on my Walgreens gift card from March easysaver rebates – got $3 RR

Summary
I ended up paying $6.02 OOP (well, I put it all on my Walgreens giftcard from the easysaver monthly rebates) for the 9 items and getting back $8 in RR to use for future weeks.

Wow! That is fantastic. What does RR stand for though?

RR’s are Register Rewards, Walgreens rewards program. RR’s print out at the end of your transaction from a coupon machine (called a catalina) behind the register when you buy certain products. They expire 2 weeks from date of issue and can be used just like cash on future purchases. Let me know if you have other questions
