Great Trip To Walgreens-Jan 6

Here's how my Walgreens trip for the week turned out (I made $$!!):

Transaction #1
2 Flintstones Vitamins $10.00
One-A Day $7.00
Philips Milk of Magnesia $3.00


(2) $1.00 Flintsones newspaper coupons
$1.00 One-A-Day coupon
$8.08 paid to Wags GC

Total OOP = $8.92 ($11.46 saved) and I got $10.00 in Register Rewards back.

Transaction #2

2 Reynolds Foil $3.38
Niagara Spray Starch $1.79
Garnier Conditioner, on sale $2.99
Electrasol 20ct, on sale $3.49
2 Glade Candles, on sale $5.00
-They didn't have the car air freshener for $4.99 (this month's free with rebate item). So I added the following to fill in the $5.00
Hershey's chocolate, on sale $.12
Disney Stickers, on sale $.74
Fiber One toaster things $2.99
Cranberries $1.00
2 Act II popcorns, on sale $1.98


$.99 Wags Reynolds Foil cpn (saved $1.40)
$1.00 Reynold's cpn-they only let me use one....mgr wouldn't let me have a zero OOP transaction. Bummer!
$.99 Wags Niagara Starch cpn (saved $.80)
(2) $.40 Act II cpns
$2.50 Electrasol cpn
(2) $1.00 Glade Candle cpns
$2.00 Wags/Garnier cpn
$1.00 Garnier cpn
$1.00 Fiber One cpn
$10.00 Register Rewards from Transaction #1

Total OOP = $.72 ($33.70 saved).

As far as cash OOP, I spent a total of $9.64 on both transactions, but will get $10.00 back with the manufactures rebate from last week's paper. It's for 1/2 back by rebate, with a maximum of $10. So, that's a cash profit of $.36. My total trip savings was $45.16 and that is not counting the rebates.

I'll submit the Walgreens rebate for the two Glade Candles ($1.00 back each) and the Electrasol ($1.50). With the 10% bonus for having it loaded to my Walgreens GC, I'll get $3.85 back.

As far as the Walgreens GC goes, I lost money on this transaction. But, I started the month with $24.18 loaded on the card. With the $3.50 I'll get back from this trip, combine it with my other trip from this rebate period and I'll get $24.17 back this month. Only a $.01 loss on the GC this month! :)
