My trips to Walgreens did not pan out the way I had planned but I can't complain. I got all this for under $10
I ended up doing 3 transactions which I didn't plan and I really don't like to do unless I have to. I always seem to have someone impatient behind me who starts sighing or rolling their eyes when I start on another transaction or I end up forgetting/misplacing coupons. Regardless my first transaction was as follows
Huggies wipes $2.49
used $1 Walgreens coupon from the July coupon book
and I used a $0.50 Hggies wipes manufacture coupon
Irish Spring Deodorant 2/$6
buy 2 receive $4 register rewards
use 2 $1 manufacture coupons
3 Muskateer Candy Bars-bought 2 @ $0.49 each
used $0.50 off 2 3 muskateer candy bars
total a little over $6 after taxes and received $4 register rewards
I had planned on using register rewards from a previous purchase but didn't realize I had a coupon for every item I bought. That is one thing to remember if you are shopping at Walgreens, their register rewards act as a manufacture coupon so you have to have more items than you have coupons, otherwise your rewards won't scan. This confused me when I first started couponing because Rite Aid and CVS rewards are used like cash.
