Walgreens 2/23 (Steve) – Paid $3.71 on $32.54 of Merchandise (88.6% Saved)


walgreens-022315I had a pretty good trip to Walgreens today. Even though I try to avoid buying junk food, the Oreo Cookie deal was too good to pass up. I cracked open a carton of coconut milk and started dipping minutes after I got home 🙂

This wasn’t a very large trip, but here’s what I bought:

TWO OREO COOKIES, on sale 2/$5
Get 1000 Balance Rewards points (value $1-$1.25) when you buy two select Oreos, Cheez-It or Keebler Pita
Used one $1/2 Oreo Cookies coupon, 2/1 SS newspaper insert
Price at Register: $4, but received 1000 BR points (value up to $1.25)
NET PRICE FOR ALL: $2.75 (or $1.37 each!)

FOUR MAYBELLINE MASCARA, on sale BOGO 50% OFF (regular price $5.99; $17.96 for all four with sale)
Get 2000 Balance Rewards points (value $2-$2.50) for every two purchased (unadvertised monthly deal; was not marked at my store)
Used four $3/1 Maybelline Mascara printable manufacturer’s coupons (no longer available to print)
Price at Register: $5.96, but earned 4000 BR points (value up to $5)
NET PRICE FOR ALL: $0.96 (or 24 cents each!)

  1. For the mascara, two out of four will be less than $3 but no problem using the coupons?

  2. just curious…. why are you buying mascara?

  3. Does walgreens have a new policy now that what ever item that has register rewards they can only do two transactions??

    • Monica Bragg says:

      From my understanding that stores enforce their own limits but I am not aware of a corporate limit.

  4. why we don,t get coupns in any newspaper, i live in arizona and is very hard to to find it, maybe you can help us
