walgreens-121715I had a great trip to Walgreens today. I snapped a few photos of some Revlon clearance the other day and asked my roommate what she wanted. She told me she wanted this Revlon Photoready Face Illuminator, so I snagged the four that were left. I also grabbed the Arnicare moneymaker again because my Ibotta offer had reset, plus I picked up the Coldcalm too. FYI – If you have two DIFFERENT Coldcalm offers at two different stores and redeem them both, you can score the Boiron bonus on Ibotta even without buying their more expensive cold and flu items (I tried it and it worked!)

I was also shocked to find the aspirin moneymaker still in stock. There were TWELVE bottles on the shelf when I shopped earlier. It was tempting to buy more, but I decided to let one or two more people be pleasantly surprised to find them.

Also, I redeemed 18,000 points for $20 on my first order (that’s $1.11 per thousand value), so I’m going to put that same $1.11 per thousand value on the points I earned in the second transaction. (Normally I list $1.25 per thousand as the value because I try to redeem 40,000 at a time for $50.)

Here’s what I bought, along with the coupons used:

      You don’t have to have a smart phone for Checkout 51. You can do everything from your computer with them. You have to be able to upload your receipt to your computer via camera and you are good to go.

    I received no points for the aspirin and it wasn’t in the ad.
