My Walgreens Trip – 8/2

I purchased almost $45 worth of products for $0.50 (after rebate & RRs) at Walgreens yesterday.

Here’s what I got:

Special K Cereal (2) – $2.00 each
Keebler Club Crackers (2) – $1.00 each
Rice Krispies Treats 8 ct (6) – $1.50 each

* I received $7 RR and will get $10 from Kellogg’s Fuel for School rebate promo, making this a $2 moneymaker. See coupon details in the Walgreens Deals post.

Vitamin Conditioner (1) – $3.49 (found in the clearance endcap)
*received a $3.99 RR

Adult Aqua Shoes – $2.49 (summer clearance)

Jell-O Gelatin (2) – $0.25 each
See coupon details in the Walgreens Deals post

The Kellogg’s rebate and Vitamin Conditioner RR overage paid for the Aqua Shoes, so I will only be paying for the two boxes of Jell-O!

Walgreens Deals for 8/2-8/8

There are many good deals at Walgreens this week. You could start with the Suave Deodorant, Gum Toothbrush and Vitamin Shampoo as one transaction and then go back (or go to another store) and use the Register Rewards to pay for the Kellogg’s scenario to keep your out of pocket costs to a minimum.

Be sure to also check the summer seasonal items section (swimming, outdoor toys) for 75% off clearance.


If you haven’t already purchased your 10 items for the Kellogg’s Fuel for School Rebate, I found a scenario at Walgreens where you can get $7.00 in RR and the $10.00 rebate check from Kellogg’s, and only spend $15. Note: you must purchase all 10 items in one transaction.

Here’s how:

1. Get $5.00 RR when you purchase:

Rice Krispies Treats – buy 6, pay $9.00 total, after coupons
Price: $2.00 each
Coupon: Use three $1.00/2 – Kellogg’s Coupon Insert in 8/2 paper
* You can buy Pop-Tarts instead (or do a combo). Use the $1.00/2 Pop-Tarts coupon from the Kellogg’s coupon insert (8/2).

Cheez-Its (4.5 oz) and/or Keebler Cookies or Crackers (5.25 oz – 6 oz) – buy 2, pay $2.00
Price: $1.00 each
Coupons are for the larger size. This seems to be the cheapest “filler” to get to 10 items.

2. Get $2.00 RR, when you purchase:

Special K Cereal, Froot Loops, Frosted Flakes or Raisin Bran – buy 2, pay $4.00, after coupons
Price: 2/$5.00
Coupon: $1.00/2 – Kellogg’s Coupon Insert in 8/2 newspaper

3. Submit the 10 UPCs to Kellogg’s by 9/30/09 and receive a $10.00 rebate check by mail for a $2.00 moneymaker!

Promotion details and a list of qualifying products for the Kellogg’s Fuel for School promotion can be found in the 8/2 Kelloggs insert or online (sign in to view details).

There are probably other good scenarios with this deal. I really need the Rice Krispies treats so I’m focusing on those. If you’ve found another scenario, please leave a comment with a link to your scenario.


Vitamin Shampoo or Conditioner 13 oz – FREE + possible MM
Price: $3.99
Get: $3.99 RR
Look for the “Try Me Free” tags on the product to make this a moneymaker (if you haven’t already submitted the rebate).

Gum Toothbrush (2 pack) – FREE – $1.00 MM
Price: $3.49
Coupon: $1.00 – 6/21 RP (Can’t find this in the Dallas insert)
Get: $3.49 RR

Suave Deodorant (2.6 oz) – Possible MM depending on coupon values & your store’s price
Price: $1.41 (or 25% off whatever your Walgreens’ price is)
Coupon: $0.50/1 – 5/17 RP (coupon may be $0.75/1 in some areas & you’ll need 8 coupons) OR $0.75/2 – 8/2 RP (4 coupons required)
Promotion: Get $10 RR when you buy 8


Expo Dry Erase Markers – $0.99
Price: $1.99
Coupon: $1.00/1 – printable

Jell-O Gelatin – $0.23 each – must buy 2
Price: 2/$1.00 with Walgreens ad coupon
Coupon: $0.55/2 – 7/26 SS (may be $0.50/2 – the CouponMom database shows $0.55, but others are reporting it’s $0.50. I’m not home, so I can’t check coupons)

Please note: My coupon match-ups are based on coupons from North Texas newspapers. If you live elsewhere, your coupon values may vary.

My Walgreens Trip (7/31)

I stopped by Walgreens to get Photo Stamps ($6.11 each) and found two in the photo department (more on my experience creating stamps can be found toward the end of this post). I also picked up a Petquarium with two fish ($1.69) and 15 packages of stickers for my daughter’s birthday party favor bags ($0.30 each).

I then went to another Walgreens to kill some time before my daughter got out of camp and found that the pool and summer/seasonal items were 75% off! They were just starting to mark everything so when I checked out, the prices rang up incorrectly. Once that was straightened out, I was able to use the 15% off coupon to purchase a bunch of toys.

Spent: $15.08
Saved: $54.29

I got:

20″ Swim Ring – $0.49
Water Squirter – $0.49
Float Lounge – $3.18
Table Top Ping Pong game – $1.27 (because I need another distraction at work)
Dive Sticks – $0.84
Floating Bubble Chair – $2.12
Kid’s Baseball Glove and Ball (pink) – $1.27
Slalom Pool Hoops – $4.41

Photo Stamps
I purchased two boxes and went through the process of ordering stamps when I got home. Here’s what I did:

1) Installed the CD and found you really don’t need it. They would have been better off using gift cards you can scratch off.
2) Went to UPromise and searched for Clicked the link in case and read the fine print – no $8 is credited unless you spend money. I noted the free shipping code.
3) Uploaded a photo at and designed the stamp.
4) Entered the code from the Photostamps CD package and the free shipping code from UPromise.
5) Checked out – no credit card required!

I tried again with my second box. I realized that the first box included the shipping & handling charges (I missed the “free shipping” mention on the front of the box) so I had a credit of $2.99 from using the free s&h code. I got a bit confused because the site shows the s&h options unless you enter the free code from UPromise, and I thought I was going to be charged for it.

I read through the comments at Common Sense with Money and Mercedes said that people are getting the $8 credited to their UPromise accounts. We’ll see if it comes through. Someone else suggested going through MyPoints, which would be a great alternative if they’ll really credit 1000 points to the account!

The Coupon High left a comment on on this previous post that you can also get $8 cash back through Coupon Cactus. You need $10 in your account to get the cash back, so you’d need to do two boxes of Photo Stamps.

This deal seems way too good to be true so I’m not going to count on getting cash back without spending any money in the transaction, but it doesn’t hurt to try.

Here’s the breakdown:
$6.11 x 2 packages + $1.01 (tax on two boxes) = $13.23/40 stamps = ~$0.33 per stamp (a savings of ~ $0.11 per stamp)

Photo Stamps at Walgreens + 15% off coupon

In case you didn’t see this posted elsewhere, I thought I’d mention it.

Walgreens has the Photo Stamps on clearance for around $7.19 and you get $8.80 worth of stamps that you can personalize with artwork or photos!

There are two additional items that make this deal even sweeter:

1) Use the 15% off coupon good at Walgreens today only (7/31). Be sure to sign up at to receive these coupons directly in the future.

2) If you’re a member of UPromise, you get $8.00 for each transaction. I don’t know if this includes when you use a gift code, but it wouldn’t hurt to try.

The Coupon High mentioned in a comment below that you can use Coupon Cactus to get $8.00 cash back (you need $10 in your account to cash out). She says it works like the UPromise deal.

The price of the Photo Stamps may vary by store as not all Dallas stores had them on clearance.

Thanks to Mercedes at Common Sense with Money for posting this.
Check out her two posts here and here about deals at Walgreens where you can use the 15% coupon today.

$5 off $25 Walgreens coupon – 7/16-7/17

Walgreens has released a $5.00 off $25.00 coupon that is good on July 16 and 17 only. You must reach $25.00 before taxes and after all manufacturer and Walgreens coupons. Print the Coupon.

My Walgreens Trip – 5/21

I put together some good scenarios to use the $5 off $25 Walgreens coupon, but when I went to Walgreens on the 20th, they didn’t have everything in stock. So I got some additional scenarios together and went to a new Walgreens in my neighborhood, hoping maybe they’d be stocked up.

What I did notice is that Walgreens has a lot of orange clearance tags throughout the Dallas stores. I’ve seen aisles with a few orange tags, but I’ve never seen aisle after aisle of bright orange tags throughout. So I ended up getting a few clearance items. Here’s what I did:

$5 off $25 Walgreens Coupon

I haven’t seen any of these coupons for a while (last summer, maybe?). On Wednesday (5/20) and Thursday (5/21) only, you can take $5 off your $25 purchase at Walgreens.

Here are some items to throw in if you decide to use the coupon and want to spend the least out of pocket. For those of you who are new to Register Rewards (RR), there is a limit of one Register Rewards coupon per transaction for each item (e.g. if you buy two Bayer Quick Release Crystals, you’ll only get one $2.49 RR back).

Bayer Quick Release Crystals 4 ct – $2.49
Receive: $2.49 RR
Coupon: You might find a tearpad or peelie coupon for Bayer if they haven’t all been swiped already

Colgate Visible White Toothpaste 4 oz – $4.49
Receive: $4.49 RR
Coupon: $1.00 printable coupon

Right Guard or Dry Idea Clinical Strength Deodorant – $5.99
Receive: $5.00 RR
Coupon: $1.00 – 4/19 SS

There are also a few rebate items available. If you haven’t bought them already, you might select one to add to your transaction. Don’t purchase more than one unless the rebate allows you to send a copy of the receipt instead of the original.

Windex Wipes – Free after mail-in rebate ($3.00-3.99 each)
Coupon: $0.40/1 – 5/10 SS
Rebate: 5/10 SS

Centrum Cardio – Free or cheap after $10 mail-in rebate (should be around $10-12 and they expect you to use the $2.00 coupon)
Coupon: $2.00/1 – 5/3 RP
Rebate: 5/3 RP

Just for Men Touch of Gray – Free after mail-in rebate
If you printed the rebate I mentioned a few months ago and haven’t used it yet, this might be a good time to. The Touch of Gray is usually around $7-$8.

My Walgreens Trip – 5/12

I had some Register Rewards I needed to use this week and didn’t see much of interest in this week’s circular. The Iceland fish oil (pay $8, get $8 register reward) wasn’t at either store I visited, so I opted to buy clearance items. Last week I found some storage bins on clearance. This week I found even more on clearance. Here’s what I bought:

Aero SimplyRest Queen Air Mattress with universal pump – $20.99
Price: $79.99 (on clearance)
They also had twin-sized air mattresses for $15.79

There was one shelf in the frozen food area with everything at 75% off. This may be a store-specific sale, but check yours if you stop in. They had six or seven different products on clearance, but only the Stouffer’s and Gorton’s appealed to me.

$3.98 seems high for Stouffer’s, but I don’t usually buy it, so I don’t know. The prices were not marked before I checked out, so I bought four of each, figuring it’s the equivalent of buy 1 get 3 free.

Stouffer’s Chicken (4) – $0.99 each
Normal Price: $3.96

Gorton’s Fish Fillets (4) – $0.87 each
Normal Price: $3.48 each

Real Soft 4 pack Toilet Paper (5) – $0.25 each
Normal Price: $1.25 I think
I stocked up on free toilet paper a few weeks ago, but decided to get some of this anyway. $1.25 for 20 rolls isn’t too bad. I think this is a Walgreens store brand.

Hershey’s Chocolate Bar with Caramel (1) – $0.50 (not pictured)
I grabbed this when I thought I was going to only buy the air mattress so I could use both Register Rewards. Then I spotted the 75% off frozen food and the cheap toilet paper and forgot to put it back. I really didn’t need to buy this…

I used my Register Rewards ($10.50) and spent $20.69 out-of-pocket. My total savings was $97.22, thanks to the air mattress.

In my experience, each Walgreens will have different clearance items. Occasionally you might find the same item on clearance at all stores (like the Iams cat food I purchased a few weeks ago). Check your store to see what’s on clearance this week.

Free 8×10 photo at Walgreens – 5/6 only

In case you haven’t already heard, you can get a free 8×10 print for free at Walgreens on Wednesday, May 6. It’s a $2.99 value.

Log into the photo center and use the coupon code MOTHER when you check out. You will need to select a Walgreens store near you where you’ll pick up the 8×10 print.
