Last week, I showed you how to “Roll with the Punches” at Walgreens. This week, I’m going to walk you through what to do when you are using more coupons than you have items.
What I Learned This Week:
Know your store’s limits. Each store is allowed (per the coupon policy) to limit how many Register Reward deals you purchase. I went into the one by my home, and when they saw me walk in with my binder they told me that they limit it to three register reward items per person. Yikes!! When I clarified that I wanted to run three transactions, I showed them my list and they told me that the Crest would fulfill my limit since I would be receiving a RR from purchasing 3 Crest. I left and went to a store with more lenient rules (one where I could run three transactions, not just have three items).
So, at what is quickly becoming my favorite Walgreens store, I ran three transactions.
Advil Infants’ Drop or Children’s $4.99, buy 2 and get a $3 RR
Use 2 $1.10/1 Children’s Advil Product
There is also a $2/1 Advil Infants or Children’s coupon in the Walgreens Infant Care Booklet, but none of the Walgreens in my area have them. All the coupons are good through the end of the year. Get Walgreens Infant Care Coupon Booklet on Ebay!
Bayer Advanced, Low Dose or Chewable Aspirin $1.99 w/In-ad coupon
Use $1.50 Bayer Advanced Aspirin printable coupon
Use $8 RR from Transaction 1
This uses a total of 4 coupons for 3 items. So, I added a caramel.
L. Frances Caramel, $.39
Receive $3 RR
Crest Whitening+ Scope or Complete w/Scope Toothpaste 5.8 oz 3/$9 Buy 3
Use (3) $2/1 Crest, Scope, Oral-B Products 9/11/2011 SS (regional)
Christmas Tumbler $.29
(I asked my cashier what the cheapest item in the store was, and she pointed me to these)
Use $3 RR from Transaction 3
Receive $3 RR
Total OPP: $8.96
Still have $3.00 RR!
Final Cost: $5.96
Total Retail Cost: $35.21
Total Savings: 83%
I hope this helps everyone figure out how to buy items and pay with more than one coupon per item! This will be especially important with the Black Friday Deals!
