Great Register Reward Deal at Walgreen's

If you missed the $5/$25 coupon at WAGS earlier this week, don't despair. There is a deal at Walgreen's right now that if you spend $25 before coupons you get $5 in register rewards to spend on your next transaction! The before coupon part is awesome because there are tons of ways to minimize your out of pocket with coupons. For an easy $$ making transaction, buy 4 Wal-itins (allergy medicine) and use the in ad (4-day) coupon. Your out of pocket will be a little over $4 and you will get $5 in RR back! This is because before coupons, the total for the Wal-itin is over $25, but with the in-ad coupon each one is only $0.99!

The picture above is most of my first transaction and my second, in which I bought:

$15 worth of coke products (to get the $5 reward for a separate deal) and because I love me some soda:),
4 Revlon lip products (on clearance for $2.59 and on BOGO) and I used two $2 off coupons
2 Reach toothbrushes (used a BOGO free coupon and produced $6 RR)
2 reach flosses (used 2 $1 off coupons and produced $6 RR)
Colgate toothpaste on sale for $2.99, used $1.00 off coupon and produced $2 RR
Huggies Baby Wipes (last minute grab when I realized my second transaction total was less than the $5 RR! they were on sale for $2.50 so not a wonderful deal)

My total on gift card was right at $22 (I had $7 in RR from a previous deal) and I got $19 in RR for my next two transactions which I did later that day after naps and meals for M:)

This is where it gets to be more fun (sorry no pictures!):
Transaction #3
1 Wal-itin
1 Loreal Pro Calcium (some sort of moisturizer that is excited to try it!) FAR again this month!
5 pencils (cashier forgot to scan coupon so these were 4/$1 and one was $0.39

used $2 Loreal coupon and $0.99 Wal-itin coupon

I used my $19 in RR and paid $2.35 on gift card (again, would have been less if the pencils would have scanned on sale) and will get around $22 on gift card for the Loreal and got $5 RR back for "spending" more than $25! I turned around and bought

1 pencil $0.39
1 Rolo candy (needed quick filler since I didn't figure right on the RR total again!
4 Wal-itins (used in ad coupon for $0.99each again)

My total was twenty some odd cents on gift card and I received another RR for $5!

All in all, I spent only a few dollars more on my gift card than I will get back, and spent my original $7 in RR but ended up with $5 still! And I got some fun treats (pop, candy, make-up, Christmas pencils, candy) and lots of toothcare & allergy meds. Anyone local need allergy meds? :)
