Welcome, my fellow Walgreens fans! I am thrilled to launch the all new Walgreens $5 Challenge. Spread the word, and let’s help the newbies learn the ropes!
Walgreens is a bit different than CVS, so it may be a bigger challenge to obtain a low OOP (out of pocket). I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with in their scenarios!
If you are a first time visitor, here’s the lowdown:
Join me each week as I host The Walgreens $5 Challenge!
Seasoned WAGS shoppers: share your best scenario(s) for the upcoming week at Walgreens.
Your budget: $5.00 out-of-pocket cash.
Your mission: to grow that $5.00 into more Register Rewards (RR) to use in upcoming weeks.
*RULES* Bloggers: Please make sure at least one scenario is $5 OOP or less
1. Come up with your best scenario/scenarios for the upcoming week at Walgreens using the current weekly ad, monthly deals, and coupons available. Your budget for Out of Pocket (OOP) expenses on the first transaction is only $5.00 (either cash OOP or RRs on hand).
2. Using up to (3) scenarios (we don’t want to overwhelm the newbies with too many transactions), offer up your best scenarios to “grow” that $5.00 into more RRs to use in following weeks.
3. If you want to divide your $5.00 allowance over the 3 scenarios to make them work, that’s fine!
Here is MY $5 Scenario for the week of July 12th:
*coupons in red (you will need a Walgreens ad for some coupons, available in your Sunday paper or in-store)
Since this is the first week of the challenge, I am going to feature just one simple scenario.
Buy 1 Colgate Total Advanced toothpaste@ $2.99
Buy 2 Swanson Chicken Broth @ 2/$1.00*
Buy 2 Mini Highlighters @ $0.19/each*
Buy 3 1-Subject Notebooks @ 3/$1.00*
Buy 1 Writing Tablet or Envelopes @ $0.59/each*
$1.00/1 Colgate Total (SS 7/12/09)
*Walgreens In-Ad coupons
Total After Coupons= $4.96
RRs earned= $1.00
Total Value= $9.53 with $1.00 RRs remaining!
Keep rolling those RRs for even more savings!
There you have it! A way to play the Wags game by helping newbies learn the ropes. And who knows – you just might be inspired yourself by some of the deals you find, too!
