Sonicare Toothbrush!

I snagged one for $11 plus tax!

I really wish I had discovered this sooner so that I could have shared it with you.  My husband and I were kid free this weekend and while he was studying to teach the Sunday nigh Adult Bible class I went grocery shopping at Publix.  While I was out I decided I would stop by Walgreens.

I had planned to get another Colgate 360 toothbrush with the $1 coupon  from my July All You Magazine.    Remember this was on sale for $2.99 with a $2 RR.  With my 15% discount I paid $2.54 before RR.  I also purchased another Bayer Advanced Aspirin 20 ct for $2.55 (that's with the 15% off discount) I used a $2 off coupon and scored a $2 RR making this item a $1.45 Money Maker!
  Next on my list was a Schick Hydro 3 Razor on sale for $8.99 ( with discount I paid $7.64).  I had a $4 off coupon and this one got me a $4 RR making this one a .36 MM for me.
I found a Jet Dry on sale for $3.99 ( with discount I paid %3.39) .  It had a bonus Finish Quantum Tab attached!  I had a Walgreen's coupon for this item for $1.50 off and it had a $1.50 RR making this only .39 OOP after RR.

Last but not least I had to pick up a last minute Father's Day card.  No deals on this one but I did get my 15% off discount making the card.$3.82.

My total OOP for this transaction was $13.38 after tax and I saved $15.25 as well as earning $8.50 in RR.

Now here comes the big deal of the day!  Walgreen's had an $79.99 Sonicare Essence toothbrush on sale for $39.99.  Not such a great deal you say that's only half off.  Well I get the 15% off discount because of my husbands job.  That takes it down to $33.99.  Then I had a MFR coupon for $15.00 off.  Making it $18.99 then I applied all $8.50 of my previously earned RR!  Now this would have made the toothbrush $10.49 but remember at Walgreens you can't have more coupons then you have items so I had to purchase 5 of those yummy Caramels they keep at the checkout in order to use all my coupons and Register Rewards.  This made my total after tax $15.34.

Now that is what I call a great deal on one VERY expensive toothbrush!

What great finds did you have this week?  Any great deals come your way???  I want to know about it!

Helping you get the most for your dollar!

Monday, June 6, 2011


So I had a wonderful visit with my family in Alabama but it is always good to be back home.  The kids and I missed Derek greatly despite all the fun we were having down south.

So todays mission is to tell you all about Walgreen's and how you can save a ton of money there!  Yes I said SAVE money at a Drugstore!  Who would've thought you could?  I promise it is entirely possible and actually fun.

So here's the way it works.  Walgreen's has what are called Register Rewards.  This is Walgreens dollars that you get back when you purchase a specific product.  For example this week:

When you buy a 45 ct Healthy Woman Soy Supplement for $8 you will receive an $8 Register Reward (RR) after you checkout.  What does this mean?  It means that you will pay the full price for the product but receive the RR basically Walgreen's dollars after you check out.

Now here's the thing about Register Rewards (RR) they don't have a long shelf life.  Meaning they usually expire within a couple of weeks.  The best way to cure this problem is to complete multiple transactions while you are in the store.  First acquiring the RR and the using them to pay for items in your next transaction.

The next thing you need to know about RR.  You can only get one RR per deal (per product) on a transaction.  For example if you wanted to get two of the above products you would need to complete two separate transactions to get both RR's.  If you purchased two of the same product in one transaction you will only get one RR.

A great way to really save mega bucks and sometimes get money off of your total bill is to stack coupons with  RR deals.  You should always try to do this if you can.

One other thing to note about Walgreens  you cannot have more coupons than you have items.  Coupons include RR's  So sometimes you will need small filler items such as caramels that are very cheap in order to use all your coupons and RR's in a transaction.

Last thing.  Walgreen's always has a coupon booklet out each month.  It is available when you walk in where the Weekly Ads are displayed.  These are great for stacking with manufacturer coupons and RR's.  They also put coupon's in their ad each week which can be stacked with manufacturer coupons.

I hope this helps!  I generally save over 60% when shopping at Walgreens.  I hope you can too!

If you have any questions or comments please let me know :)

Have a great Monday!
