Many of you know that CVS has fantastic deals and savings for smart shoppers. I was pleasantly surprised this past Sunday when I learned that Walgreens has the same type of reward system. This week was the first week that I tried shopping this way, and I'm pretty pleased with the results. I spent $21.58 in the course of 3 different transactions, and I saved $25.29 from the 3 transactions through the use of store coupons, manufacturer coupons, and Walgreens bucks. Here is the breakdown:
Transaction #1 - 4 12-can packs of Coke products: $6.76 with tax, or $1.69 per 12-cans
Transaction #2 - 2 boxes of Nice and Easy hair color: $6.98 with tax, or $3.49 each
Transaction #3 - 5 boxes Jello ($0.42 each); 2 5-LB bags of sugar ($2.13 each); and 2 sticks of Ban deodorant ($0.79 each).
I figure that I can only get better at this!
