Walgreens-ShoppingWalgreens Shopping Scenarios for 7/16/17

To get the biggest savings at Wags, you’ll need to take advantage of their Balance Reward Deals (BRs) AND Register Reward Deals (RRs) PLUS use coupons! 

The Best way to save the MOST is to alternate between Earning BRs and then using those BRs to buy items that generate RRs.


  • The best way to maximize the Rewards system at Walgreens is to use your BRs to purchase items that generate RRs. Then turn around and use the RRs to buy items that generate BRs. Essentially you are using the TWO Rewards opposite of each other so that you can maximize your money!
  • Pay Attention: You cannot use BRs to buy additional BR items because they cancel each other out and therefore you would lose your rewards.


That means the strategy is to do one transaction either “Earning” the BRs or “Using” the BRs. Here are a few shopping scenarios broken down into separate transactions for this upcoming week to get you started:

TRANSACTION #1: Best Deal Scenario to EARN BRs
Buy: (3) Neosporin Plus First Aid Antibiotic/Pain Releiving Ointment, .5oz – $6.79, BOGO 50% = $16.98
Use: (3) $1/1 Neosporin Plus Maximum Strength Cream, exp. 7/29/17 (Walgreens, July) [0.5-oz.]{minus $3}
Use: (3) $1/1 Neosporin First Aid Product printable {minus $3} (You will need 2 computers to print 3)

Pay: $16.98 (product total) – $6 (coupon total) = $10.98 OOP
EARN: 5,000 BRs + 160 Every Day Points (= $5.16 in Rewards)
Final Price: $5.82 for all (3) products or $1.94 each!

**Remember, add in fillers to use any RRs you may already have on hand from last week (which will reduce  your OOP).

TRANSACTION #2: USE BRs (earned in Transaction #1) and EARN Register Rewards:
Buy: (2) Irish Spring Body Wash, 15 – 18 oz – 2/$8
Use: (2) $0.75/1 Softsoap brand Body Wash printable 
{minus $1.50}
Subtotal: $8 (product total) – $1.50 (coupon total) = $6.50 Subtotal
5,000 BRs (=$5.00)
Pay: $1.50 OOP
 in Rewards (Plus earn $8 toward your next 5K Beauty Enthusiast reward!)


The Total of All Products Before Coupons or RRs would have been $24.98!
Transaction #1 = $10.98
Transaction #2 =

Price OOP is $12.48! BUT you still have the $5 RRs PLUS the $.16 Points to use later!
Final Price: That’s just $7.32 Total! For all 6 items! Only $1.46 each item! 

This Deal ends when the sale ends on Saturday 7/22/17!
