Walgreens Trip 5/3/11 $5.02...87% OFF!

Walgreens Trip 5/3/11 $5.02...87% OFF!
I had transactions all planned out for Walgreens this afternoon & was hoping they would have most of the items I needed in stock.  Well, that certainly wasn't the case today!  They were out of Charmin, Tylenol Precise, Noxzema Razors, & Bic Soleil razors from my list.  So, I did some re-shuffling of my plan in store.  I think I heard that they plan to get a truck in tomorrow, though.  So, I might give it a whirl again later in the week.  For these & more Walgreens Deals available yet this week, see my earlier post:  Walgreens Deals Week of 5/1/11 - 5/7/11!  For more about shopping & saving at Walgreens, see: Store Tips & Policies: Drugstores

Here's what I ended up buying today:

Transaction #1:
12-Scotch Magic Tape 1/2" x 450", Buy one @ $1.99, get two FREE!
~used a rain check to get sale price (from sale a couple of weeks ago)
+ used eight $1/1 scotch tape coupons
= $0.08 moneymaker!

2-U by Kotex Tampons, 18 ct., $3.50 each
~buy two & receive $2 RR
+ used two $1/1 coupons
= $1.50 each after coupons used & RRs received

1-G-U-M Eez-thru Flosser, $2.00
~buy one & receive $2 RR

Total Spent: $7.89 OOP (including tax)
Total Saved: $14.97 (65% OFF)
+ received $4 RR which I then used in Transaction #2

Transaction #2: 
 3-Nexcare Bandages, $3.49 each
~will be sending in for rebate on the box to make all of these FREE!
+ used one $0.55/1 coupon

Total Saved: $32.98 (87% OFF)!


  1. Just letting everyone know -- I love my wags. The manager there is very coupon friendly. I let him know what's hot for the next week and he orders extra. The address is SEC of Johnson & Washington, Madison, WI across from Ella's Deli. They still have plenty of Charmin & Tylenol Precise. If not on the shelf just ask an associate to check the back. Not sure about the razors.

  2. Thanks so much for the tip, Claudette! That's so nice to know! I occasionally drive by that Walgreens...so I'll be sure to stop in sometime! :-)
