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!
