I had an AWESOME trip to Walgreens today! I love when everything goes EXACTLY as planned…which isn’t too often 😉 The last few times I shopped at Walgreens, I was careless and made some amateur mistakes, so I was happy to see this trip go off without a hitch! I would’ve bought even more Tide & Charmin, except the up front out-of-pocket cost was a little big high and I didn’t want to commit too much cash.
If you haven’t already done so, check your email from around April 2nd to see if Walgreens Balance Rewards program sent you an offer for 5000 Balance Rewards points when you buy $25+ in a single transaction. It expires 4/5/16, so you don’t have a lot of time to use it. I used it on my Tide/Charmin/Dawn P&G deal to make it EVEN better (and it was already an awesome deal!)
Here’s what I bought, along with the coupons used:
THREE CHARMIN ULTRA SOFT OR STRONG 16 DOUBLE ROLLS, on sale $7.99 (reg. price $13.99)
ONE TIDE LAUNDRY DETERGENT, on sale $5.99 (reg. price $8.49)
ONE DAWN DISH LIQUID 9 OZ, on sale $0.99 (reg. price $1.59)
Total before coupons = $30.95
Get 10,000 Balance Rewards points (value $10-$12.50) when you buy $30 of select P&G
Get 5,000 Balance Rewards points bonus (value $5-$6.25) with $25 purchase through 4/5 (IF you received the email and clipped the offer to your card)
Get 10 Everyday Points Balance Rewards points bonus (300 total for these items; value $0.30-$0.38)

and used one $2/1 Tide Laundry Detergent 37 oz or larger *excluding Simply* printable coupon (preclipped)

***I didn’t really need the Tide, but needed to stock up on Charmin. If you’re willing to do a deal with FOUR Tide and ONE Charmin, I have a scenario that is as low as $0.76 per item. VIEW IT HERE!
