Walgreens 9.27.09

by Gina on September 27, 2009

Profit: $2.13

I have a love / hate relationship with Walgreens Register Rewards. I love that there is no limit on how many items you can “buy” (provided you are willing to drive all over town and hit multiple stores). But there are so many drawbacks! They expire in two weeks time, many stores have had printing or catalina machine issues, not to mention all of the stipulations required to spend them. If only they could be more like CVS! Maybe someday…

That being said, I went to Walgreens for the first time in a while, and did some RR shopping. Did it go smoothly without any problems? Of course not! My toothbrush RR did not print and I purchased the wrong Gillette Razor (yes that was my fault). But the manager was very friendly and credited the $3 that wouldn’t print from the toothbrush onto a giftcard and I was able to exchange the razor for the correct type and get my RR’s from that as well.

Okay, enough complaining. Here is what I did:

Herbal Essences Product – $2.99
Coupon – $1.00
RR’s earned – $2.00
Total: $0.01 MM

Chapstick Fresh Effects – $2.99
RR – $2.00
Total: $0.99

Gillette Fusion MVP Razor – $8.99
Coupon – $4.00
RR’s – $6.00
Total: $1.01 MM

Oral B Advantage 1,2,3 Toothbrush – $3.00
Coupon – $0.75
RR’s – $3.00
Total: $0.75 MM

Vaseline Sheer Infusions – $6.99
Coupon – $1.25
RR’s – $7.00
Total: $1.26 MM
