Walgreens, 9/13-9/19

My friend Karen at Frugal RI Mama brings you the best of the Walgreens deals and coupon match-ups. I am going to highlight the best (IMHO) below but you'll want to read her full post for the rest.

For information on how to shop wisely at Walgreens please read my Walgreens 101 post.

This past week I actually went to Walgreens and did 2 monthly deals - Trident Layers Gum is 2 for $2 and get $1 RR. I used this printable coupon for $1 off 2 and the gum is FREE after RR. I printed the coupon twice and did the deal twice - remember you can't do it together or else both RR's won't print. I also did the Sally Hansen Deal. You buy 3 Sally Hansen products and get a $5 coupon off Sally Hansen back. I bought 3 of the Hard as Nails nail polishes for $2.29 each then used 3 of the $1 off coupons (from the 8/2 or 8/23 RP) so I paid $3.87 for the 3 nail polishes and got back a $5 coupon!

So now I have $2 in RR and the $5 coupon to start playing around with this week. I'm going to highlight Karen's deals below and then tell you what I plan to get!

My Shopping Trip

I will buy 2 more hard as nails polishes and use the 2 remaining $1 off coupons I have, then add in any item that is more than $2.42 and use the $5 coupon to get $5 off - plus a new $5 coupon will print because I will have purchased 5 Sally Hansen products! I'll use 1 of the register rewards on this since the extra item I am purchasing I don't have a coupon for.

Remember, you can only use as many coupons/RR's as you have items.

I'll also buy the True North snacks - I'll need a small filler item (last week I found cute bamboo napkin rings for $.17) and then I can use the coupon for the snacks plus the RR I have left. I'll leave with $3 RR from the True North and another $5 Sally Hansen coupon - not too bad!
