As I mentioned in my CVS post, I stopped at Walgreens just before midnight on Saturday night prior to my CVS trip. Then I stopped by Walgreens again on the way home to buy a few items on the new sale. A few deals didn’t work out as expected. I only received the advertised 1000 points per Mitchum Deodorant. This is what the ad specified, however earlier in the week folks were getting 2000 points for each one they bought. Also, my cashier entered the Stride ID Gum coupons as $1 each this time, rather than scanning them, so I didn’t make out like a bandit like I’d hoped. Nevertheless, it was a successful trip.
Here’s what I bought, along with the coupons used:
