Walgreens- GREAT money makers and HUGE suprise Money Maker!

I am starting to feel like myself again, so wanted to take advantage of the register reward deals Walgreens has going on this week! I had a $10 RR to roll so I had to find a store that had most the deals to really get my money's worth. I was in luck more than I realized at the store I hit up, so I ended up doing a couple transactions to really load up!(this store was very well stocked!)

Here is my first transaction:

5 Nabisco Wheat Thins/Triscuits $2 each - $1 insert 11-08 SS- $1/2 Wags diabetes booklet = $2.50 (it took of $2.50 since I purchased 5)
2 Lubriderm* 6 oz lotion $3.79 each - $2 insert 10-11 RP = $3.58
1 Lubriderm 16 oz $7.49 - $2 insert 10-11 RP= $5.49
2 Theraflu $5 each - $3/2 insert 10-18SS - $4 Wags ($2 Healthy Savings booklet found in pharmacy)=$3
1 Triaminic $5
1 Triaminic $1.69**- $3/2 insert 10-18SS - $3.69 Wags($2 Healthy Savings booklet) = 0
1 Reynolds foil $1.69 - $1 booklet coupon(found at Randalls) - .70 in ad coupon = -.01
4 Coloring books $2 - .66 in ad coupon = $1.34
Spent $10 RR and 2 $2 RR as well as $1.90 on a gift card
Earned $8 for Lubriderm, $5 for Triaminic, $3 for Theraflu and $3 for Nabisco
*I could have saved an extra $3 by using the Lubiderm coupon in the Diabetes booklet but looking at me receipt, I noticed I forget to give them that coupon(guess I am not all better quite yet!)
**I did not realize until I was leaving after trans #2 that this was on clearance and a HUGE money maker, so I went back in for a 3rd transaction to take advantage)


Second transaction was to finish getting the 10 Nabisco products to fulfill my Jingle Holiday rebate.

Trans #2

5 Nabisco Wheat Thins/Triscuits $2 each - $1 insert 11-08 SS - $1/2 Wags diabetes booklet = $2.50 (it took of $2.50 since I purchased 5)
2 Theraflu $5 each - $3/2 insert 10-18SS - $4 Wags ($2 Healthy Savings booklet)=$3
2 Triaminic $5 each - $3/2 insert 10-18SS - $4 Wags($2 Healthy Savings booklet) = $3
1 Reynolds foil $1.69 - $1 booklet coupon - .70 in ad coupon = -.01
2 Comtrex $5.99 each - $3 insert 11-01 SS - $3 Wags = -.02
5 Christmas pencils $2.50 - 1.25 in ad coupon = $1.25
Spent 4 $2 as well as $1.72 on a gift card
Earned $5 for Triaminic, $3 for Theraflu and $3 for Nabisco


After getting to my car and seeing the Triaminic was a HUGE profit, I decided to run back in and get some bread with the overage.
Trans #3:
2 Wonder bread $1.99 each = $3.98
2 Theraflu $5 each - $3/2 insert 10-18SS- $4 Wags ($2 Healthy Savings booklet)=$3
2 Triaminic $1.69 each - $3/2 insert 10-18SS - $3.38 Wags($2 Healthy Savings booklet) = -$3
1 Christmas pencil $.69- .44 in ad coupon = $.25
Spent 2 $2 RR and .23 on gift card and got back
$5 for Triaminic and $3 for Theraflu
Will send off first two receipts for the $10 Jingle your Holiday rebate on Nabisco items
So, this is my overall breakdown:
Cost: $14 RR + $1.90 + $8 RR + $1.72 + $4 RR + .23 +.44 stamp = $30.29
Receive: $ 19 RR + $11 RR + $8 RR + $10 rebate = $48
Profit of $17.71!
A HUGE Thank you goes to Lisa at SouthwestCouponClipper for the heads up on the Nabisco deal!

Not sure if this is on clearance at every store, but the one I got says: Multi Symptom fever Bubble Gum flavor(pink) upc is 3 0043-6394-04 0
Good luck!

Southwest Coupon Clipper said...

Wow! You obviously feel much better!! Also, the Bubble Gum flavor with the upc 300436394040 is on clearance pretty much at all the W stores. Glad your feeling better!!!

I gave you a preview on the Nabisco. No respect

I bought this particular flavor the other day but it was regular price $5 at my WAGS in Bellaire area. bummer...I'll have to check a few other stores...

Ashley B. said...

I am confused though...why did the Healthy Savings book only take off $3.38 and not $4 (since the coupon says $2/1)??

Stephanie (aka zoeys_mom, ZM) said...

Ashley, Walgreens typically adjust down to not allow overage. You will only get the amount you pay off typically on Wags coupons, but since I had a manuf coupon, I got overage there, HTH

I have gone to 10 Walgreens stores in mid-town, southwest Houston, Pearland, Missouri City and cannot find more than 2 Lubriderm lotions on the shelf. Any suggestions?
