Walgreens-ShoppingWalgreens Shopping Scenarios
for  8/24 – 8/30!!

To get the biggest savings at Wags, you’ll need to take advantage of their Balance Reward Deals AND Register Reward Deals PLUS use coupons!  The Best way to save the MOST is to alternate weekly between Earning BRs and Using those BRs to buy items with RRs. That means instead of multiple transactions each week,  you have just one larger 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.

  • The best way to maximize the Rewards system at Walgreens is to use your BRs to purchase items with RRs. Then turn around and use the RRs to buy items that have BRs.
  • Pay Attention: You cannot use BRs to buy additional BR items because they cancel each other out and therefore you would lose your rewards.

Be sure to check out the Wags Ad for 8/24 – 8/30 HERE for even more possibilities.
