I had a great day today at Walgreens. It seemed like every deal worked out better than expected, plus I had an awesome clearance find on Vicks Nature Fusion that also became a moneymaker. My only disappointment was that my store was out of the Blistex freebie, but that’s not that big of a deal to me.

I did a total of five transactions. The first four were identical, but I had to split them up to get all of the Register Rewards. Note that I also bought some smokes (not listed – off budget), so I didn’t need to buy junk fillers (like Nice! Gelatin) to use some Register Rewards on Transaction #5.

  1. Steve,
    When you say “on clearance”, are those usually in the back of the store on the end caps? or in their normal spots?

    • Sometimes they are on the shelf, but in this case they were on an endcap in the back with other clearance items.

  2. i am soooo confused about the new rrs/balance card : ( haha!!

    • I agree! How are these bonus points redeamed, and you posted different dollar amounts depending on “how” you redeam them. Just need some help please.

      • I’ll try to explain everything in the next day or two (I’m still learning), but basically you can choose whether or not to redeem them at the end of your transaction if you have enough points for an award. Rewards start at $5 for 5000 points ($1 per thousand), but if you wait to redeem them you can get $50 for 40000 points ($1.25 per thousand.)

  3. I dont understand how you bought 2 Glade Expressions at 2.99 each and used (1) 2.00 MC and got (2) 1.00 RR, how it was a MM.
    2.99 X 2 = 5.98 – 2.00 – 2.00 = 1.98. Did you buy them in seperate transactions?

    • I got the two $1 RRs on each transaction (a total of eight $1 RRs)

      • I see what you’re saying, Lori. Transactions 1-4 are listed as “BUY TWO GLADE EXPRESSIONS FRAGRANCE MIST STARTER KITS 7 OZ” — I think it should be “buy one” rather than “buy two.”
