Walgreens June 6th -16th 2011

(Only Stuff from 6/16)

I saw the flyer of Walgreens and saw that some deals I could try out with my existing coupons so here I went :

(2) Reach Toothbrushes 2/$5
-$2.5/2 Reach Toothbrushes
Subtotal $2.50 Tax $0.44
Total $2.94 Got $3 Reach Register Rewards (RR) + $1 RR Catalina Deal Just realized that the RR expires in 2 weeks.

(4) Reach Toothbrushes 2/$5 Thought the Catalina will print $4 RR while I get 4 of them together
Gillette Fusion Razor $9.89
-$4 Gillette Razor
-(2) $2.50/2 Reach toothbrushes (thank god the coupons didn't scan right and the cashier manually entered them as Gillette coupons)
Subtotal $10.89 Tax $1.72
Total $12.61 Got $5 Gillette RR + $3 Reach RR
Since the expected $3 Reach Catalina didn't printed out, I decided to return two of the toothbrushes so the Actual Total I paid OOP is $7.17

Having such a trouble of dealing with the fast expiring RRs without much rolling possible in Walgreens, I went into to two of them today and try to spend or roll them.

Transaction #1:
(2) Dentek Floss B1G1 Free $2.79
(2) Puffs To Go Tissue 2/$3
Bigelow Green Tea Bag $1.69 Clearance
No Coupons for any of these items nor I could combine the RRs with MQ.
Subtotal $7.48 Tax $0.51
Used $7 RRs
Total $0.99 (Amex gift card) Got $1 Puffs RR.

Didn't find the free allergy medicine and found another Walgreens on the way downtown and they do have them in stock.
Transaction #2:
Wal-Fex Allergy 5ct $3.99
Evian Water $1.29
Subtotal $5.33 Tax$0.11
Used $5 RRs
Total $0.44 Got $4 Allergy RRs

Total Cash Spent $11.54 Received $17 RRs in total. Still have $5 RRs on hand which will expire on 6/30. Hope the sale is good next two weeks. If not I'll get stuff I need from the Walgreens again and get rid of them. Too much trouble since there's so many restrictions to do their deals. Plus the RRs expire so quick which is too frustrating to deal with. Maybe I'll learn to do them better in the summer :).
