Walgreens 6/18 (Steve) – $2.99 PROFIT on $237.74 of Merchandise (101.3% Saved)

NEVER MISS A HOT DEAL! SUBSCRIBE TO OUR DAILY EMAIL NEWSLETTER!

Wow, today was a crazy day of Walgreens shopping. You’ll notice that this picture is taken in a different part of my house today. That’s because there was no way I was going to fit all this stuff on the counter where I normally take my shopping photos. We went to two different stores today and I had the roommate along for the trip too. She came in handy, because the Aveeno coupons have a limit of one per person 😉

I’m not going to break this down into different transactions below. However, if you’re going to redeem points this week to do any of these deals, I know that you are safe to do the Softsoap, Aveeno and BIC points deals even if you’re redeeming points. You can do deals like these where you buy a certain “number” of an item to earn the points instead of a certain “dollar” amount.

So basically…any of the deals below except the Schick deal can be safely done when redeeming points.

Note that I value all points below as $1.25 per one thousand points earned. This is because I (almost) always only redeem 40,000 points at a time for $50 of credit. When you do that, you are receiving $1.25 for every thousand points redeemed. Here’s what we bought, along with the coupons used…

  1. LOL
    Don’t forget the Sally Hansen nail polish is still going!

    🙂

  2. Did you join the Beauty Club?
    The body wash and maybe more, count toward the Spend $50, get 5000 points

    (My stores were picked clean of the Softsoap)

    • Steve Pinski says:

      Oh shoot. I also had a Beauty Enthusiast reward during my transaction with the Schick deal. I completely forgot about that.

  3. You guys must get very dirty hands if you need 24 soaps!

    • Steve Pinski says:

      Hahahahah well…I have been hanging around with quite a few politicians. Definitely need to hose off a little more often 😉

  4. Pauline says:

    I know you have answered this question but I can’t find your comment so here goes. There is a particular transaction where one may use/ pay with balance rewards and also earn them. Please do tell. I did try to search your answer. Thanks for your time and great shopping tips and trips.
    Sincerely,

    • Steve Pinski says:

      Whenever you buy a deal that is ‘Buy a certain number of an item’ instead of ‘Buy a certain dollar amount’ you can use points and still earn the new points.

      • Pauline says:

        Thanks Steve so the Soft soap promotion would work where one could use points to pay and still earn the points since it’s buy 2 get 3,000 BP. Am I right in that interpretation?

    • Maureen says:

      If the promotion is to earn points for buying a specified NUMBER OF ITEMS (e.g., buy two packages of razors), you can pay with points.

      If the promotion is to earn points for spending a specified DOLLAR AMOUNT (e.g., spend $20 on razors), you cannot pay with points.

      • Pauline says:

        I am sooo sorry had I thoroughly read your introduction I would not have had to waste your time. Thank-you for your kind response. Still, this is the best blog on saving money and finding great deals.
