Walgreens Shopping Scenarios 3/11

by Christie Hardcastle on March 10, 2012

Here’s my Walgreens Shopping Scenario for 3/11. If you just do the first 2 transactions you’ll get $15.18 in merchandise, spend $4.18 out of pocket and end up with $4 in Register Rewards. So it’s like you are paying $.18 for everything!

If you want to pick up the Coke products and candy I’ve added a third transaction, that makes it $37.18 in merchandise for $10.18 after coupons and Register Rewards.

IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT THESE TRANSACTIONS
-) You can’t have more MQ than items! Blue = MQ
-) You don’t have to do these in one day, just pick up where you left off.
-) I always bring some extra fillers with me to the register, in case of an emergency!

TRANSACTION #1 BUY
(2) Irish Spring AP/Deo 2.7 or 3oz 2/$6
(2) $1/1 Irish Spring deodorant exp. 3/31/12 (3-11-12 SS)
Total = $4 (Get Back $3 RR Irish Spring)

TRANSACTION #2 BUY
(4) Right Guard Body Wash B1G1 $4.49
(1) Seed Packets .20 (w/in ad q)
Total = $9.18
(2) $3/2 Total Defense Products printable (no longer available check your binders!)
(1) – In ad coupon for Seed Packets
(1) $3 RR Irish Spring
Total = $.18 (Get Back $4 RR Total Defense)

$15.18 in merchandise, for $.18 after Coupons & Register Rewards

TRANSACTION #3 (IF YOU WANT SODA & CANDY) BUY
(3) Coke Products 3/$10
(4) Hershey’s Minis, Nuggets or Kisses Bag 9.4 to 12oz 2/$6
Total = $22
(1) -$2/3 Hershey’s Kisses, Reese’s, Bliss, Miniatures or Cadbury or Whoppers Eggs, exp. 3/24/12 (SS 02/26/12)
(1) – $4 RR Walgreens
Total = $16 (Get Back $10 RR Coke)

$37.18 in merchandise, for $10.18 after Coupons & Register Rewards

Since Right Guard and Coke are month long deals, I went to my store tonight after sale prices were turned on. Both deals still work with no problems and my store had some of the deo on clearance for 2.29 that rings up BOGO and RR printed. There are also some deo with sample bodywash attached. Happy shopping!

I checked my ss for the irish spring and we didn’t get one… bummer…

Debbie March 10, 2012 at 9:47 pm

Couldn’t we get 6 (12pk) cokes for $20 total and get $10 RR back?

Reply

Kelley March 10, 2012 at 10:07 pm

Ad says limit of 3 but your store might let you buy six.

Reply

Christie March 10, 2012 at 10:07 pm

You can as long as your store allows you to purchase 6. The limit is (3) in the ad but it’s up to each store if they choose to enforce them. :)

With the right guard deal can I get 2 deo and 2 body washes and will the deal work the same as if I got 4 body washes?

Reply

Christie March 10, 2012 at 10:07 pm

It should yes. :-)

my store has the deod and bw on clearance for $2.29

Reply

fabiola March 11, 2012 at 2:01 pm

Mine did too! I bought four deod and got a $4 RR back. It was a nice surprise.

Jamie March 10, 2012 at 9:57 pm

Could I do 6 12 packs and then use 10 in last weeks RR and still get the RR since its 20 before coupons?

Reply

anne March 10, 2012 at 10:05 pm

Debbie,
You could get (6) 12 packs instead of the Hersheys candy. I bet they were included because there are coupons available for them so you could get more stuff for less money. It works both ways if you would rather get more soda and not the candy. It would be more money out of pocket.

Reply

anne March 10, 2012 at 10:06 pm

Are the Whoppers candy eggs included in the Hershey’s/Coke RR?

Reply

Christie March 10, 2012 at 10:08 pm

As far as I know they are not (I have not seen a sign) but I haven’t tried it. I tried Bliss and it didn’t work. :(

Reply

Denise March 10, 2012 at 11:46 pm

Hi Christie! I have a question, im new at couponing. It says above that if you purchase 2 Right Guard (B1G1 Free) you will get $2 RR. But i dont see that stated in the walgreens ad for 3/11. Could I be reading it wrong? Can you please explain.

Thank you,
Denise

Christie March 11, 2012 at 9:39 am

Welcome Denise!

It’s unadvertised so you won’t find it in the ad, it only printed as an advertisement out of the catalina machine, but you can read more about it below. :-) (It’s amazing how many deals stores don’t advertise so we come across all kinds of things you’d never know if you only read the ad. ;-)).

I think I got this scenario from your blog last week:
DEAL IDEA STARTING 3/11***
Buy (1) Women’s or Men’s One A day 100ct $8.99 each
-$4 OFF (Automatic Sale Price)
-$1.75 off when you buy any One A Day Multivitamin Product (printable)
-$1/1 One A Day Product, Any (5341) Walgreens Coupon March booklet
Total = $2.24 EACH
So, if we were buying two of those vitamins, plus a couple of $0.20 seed packets (with in ad Q), we could use $4RR from Right Defense and pay less than $1 OOP

Reply

Christie March 11, 2012 at 9:40 am

Yes – just make sure the $8.99 ones are ringing up with the $4 discount (and try the $7.99 ones too ;-)). I haven’t been there yet to check.

Reply

Kathy March 11, 2012 at 3:20 pm

I did 1 one a day for women 8.99 and 1 one a day for men 8.99.
Totalling 17.98.
I used 2-1.75 coupons
Putting my total at 14.48.
Then I used the March store IVC which took $2.00 off
Total now at $12.48.
I noticed the 2-$4.00 off (per the Wags ad) did not come off, but a FIVE dollar Bayer Catalina did shoot out after I paid. I took my receipt to the manager who promptly apologized and gave me the $8.00 back that the register didn’t take off initially. SO….including the mystery $5.00 catalina (even checked couponnetwork.com to see if I missed something). My 17.98 in vitamins turned into a .52¢ moneymaker. YEAH!

Reply

Christi March 11, 2012 at 4:25 pm

i got the RR too but i thought it was for the bayer aspirin i bought because that is what the upc matched…l

Reply

dropofrain March 11, 2012 at 5:28 pm

well, at my store 100 ct were ringing up at $9.99 and they were NOT included in $4 off deal, even though their ad stated “50 to 200 ct”. Store manager gave me that discount but in the end I paid $3.24/ea- still very good deal.

yajaira March 11, 2012 at 12:40 am

In transaction 2 do we need filler item if its 4 itmes and 2 coupons and 1 rr.? Thank-you :)

Reply

kay March 11, 2012 at 8:32 am

I was wondering about that too but since we have more items than coupons it should work right? I’m also thinking, if the deo and bw are on clearance for 2.29 and its B1G1 it’ll be 4.58 but I plan to use (2) 3/2 Q. Do i need to get something for the overage? Thanks..=)

Reply

Bo March 11, 2012 at 10:43 am

If you plan on using (2) $3/2 Qs on the B1G1 clearance then it will beep. It happened to me this morning. What I did was use (1) $3/2 and (1) $1/2 Q, that should bring the total to $0.58+tax, without having to deal with fillers. The $1/2 Q can be found on the Right Guard facebook page.

Reply

Christie March 11, 2012 at 9:35 am

Depending on how the coupon is coded the $/2 coupons may attach to the two items you are buying with it – so it’s taking up two slots.

You can try it without (I don’t have the coupon in front of me) but I would strongly suggest having the filler with you because there’s a really good chance you’ll get beeps and need to throw it in. Hope that helps! :-)

Reply

kay March 11, 2012 at 7:36 pm

It did beep when I tried this morning so I got a filler. I forgot about the 1/1 Q. Went back this afternoon and did the new transaction you showed us with the 2.29. So I paid .90 got back 4RR. Thanks ladies =)

lin March 11, 2012 at 9:50 am

I am at Walgreen’s now. Bought 6 12 pack Cokes + other items, $10 RR
did not print! I used several non Coke/Hershey RRs to bring total to less than $5
Just recalled it being discussed that total must ring up above $20 for RR to print

They voided whole transaction and this time I did cokes only with no coupons and $10 RR printed

Reply

Mary March 11, 2012 at 9:58 am

I have been trying to tell people this on different blogs, but no one is listening to me. It has happened to me twice. I tried it the second time to be sure that was why and it was. Glad they fixed it for you.

Reply

Joan March 11, 2012 at 12:35 pm

I purchased (6) 12 pks of various Coke products and my OOP using RRs from previous weeks was .21 and the RR printed just fine.

Reply

cristywisty March 11, 2012 at 2:06 pm

I bought 6 of the planters peanuts for $21, used 3 $1.50/2 coupons bringing my total under $20 and the $10 RR printed for me. I also used $17 in RR (which my cashier had to manually enter as manf. coupons) to pay for them so it was only .50 out of pocket and $10 RR for next week.

Reply

Mary March 11, 2012 at 3:15 pm

I did transactions a few ways and think I have the problem figured out. If your RR is under the cost of the Coke (like a $2 or $3 RR) the RR will attach to the Coke as a coupon (on my receipt it says Coke MFG CPN $2), and it messes up the total. If you use a RR for higher than the cost of the Cokes, like a $4 or $5 RR, it doesn’t attach them to the Cokes, it just says MFG CPN at the end of the receipt and the RR prints fine. It is weird how this is working.

Right guard body wash rr is not working as expected. :( The free ones are NOT counting so I only got a $1 rr for buying two rather than the $4 one for buying 4. Still a decent deal but thought I would let everyone know.

Reply

Joan March 11, 2012 at 12:41 pm

Wow, wonder why everyone is having troubles today. I purchased (4) and used (2) of the $3/2 IPs and received a $4 RR.

Julie S. March 11, 2012 at 1:03 pm

I did two body wash and two deo to be safe and it printed fine.

I bought 8 in 2 transactions and it printed for me both times.

Reply

dropofrain March 11, 2012 at 5:33 pm

I bought two and got one $1RR (which I expected). Did you buy four all together
and got only one $1 RR?

Reply

michelle March 12, 2012 at 3:18 pm

yeah I bought all 4 together…not sure what happened? I even did it twice and both times I only got a $1 RR? Maybe its just the store I go to??

Reply

Lenore Day March 11, 2012 at 11:05 am

The body wash did not produce a RR for me either, but the deodorant did. Is maybe the body wash not included in the RR deal?

Reply

Lori March 11, 2012 at 11:00 pm

The catalina deal is supposed to include the whole Right Guard Total Defense 5 line, the deal says “products” so includes both. I’ve read on another site a few people having the rr not print. You could always return and try it again. I did the deal on Saturday when I was at Wags and saw the deodorant for $1.99 each (shoulda waited, they would’ve been an even bigger moneymaker today!) so I got 8 and they printed just fine.

Reply

mark March 11, 2012 at 11:05 am

The clearance right guard worked great for me as well! Even after I used my $3 coupons, I bought more because buying four was still only .58 (2.29X2-$4RR)! Then you can rotate them with Irish Spring deal…bought 22 deodorants today still leaving a ton for other people and enough to last my family for a few months at least!
Thanks for the great deals!

James March 11, 2012 at 12:20 pm

Has anyone tried the one a day (mens) today at all?? i tried the 100ct that comes in the box and would not work, the cashier told me its just for the womens bottle, so could someone please tell me whats working and what bottle/box you got???

Reply

dropofrain March 11, 2012 at 5:34 pm

I got 100 ct Women’s and it wasn’t included in $4off deal. Apparently “50 to 200ct” in their mind excludes 100 ct. Go figure

Pawn March 11, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Hi Christie!! A big THANK YOU!!!! for the scenario and matchup. Today, with 4 separate transactions, I was able to get:

4 newspaper, I like to get papers for filler since I’ll be buying papers anyway
8 bottles of Total Defense Body washes and
4 Irish Spring deodorants

OOP, including taxes: $5.28, and I still have $3 RR for next time. Thanks again!!!

NatalieWI March 11, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Heads up!! The Hersheys Easter Candy is not the right size bags for the RR deal.

Reply

Ashley March 11, 2012 at 1:35 pm

The Right Guard bodywash and the Coke deals both worked fine for me. I wonder why the RRs aren’t printing for some people……

Reply

Amber March 11, 2012 at 1:49 pm

for the coke deal did you use any RR to pay for it?

Reply

Ashley March 11, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Yes, I think I used 4 RR’s that totaled $10.

Reply

Amber March 11, 2012 at 2:04 pm

thanks, was your total $20 or more after you used the RR’s? Sry just trying figure it all out since some are saying it’s not printing while it’s printing for others.

Reply

Ashley March 11, 2012 at 2:32 pm

No, I think my total was around $12 (after tax). I just got 6 diet cokes at that store. I used RRs from the huggies wipes deal and one from last week’s colgate. So I guess I used $9 in RR.

Reply

Katie March 11, 2012 at 4:53 pm

I got 6 coke products used 5 rr for a toal of $20 only paide $1.02 tax I used 2 @ $5 (the mist ones from last week) 1@4 (right gard) 1@ $3 ( Irish spring) 1@$3 Colgate = 20 in RR I used to pay and got the $10 one back.

stacia March 11, 2012 at 1:47 pm

I bought clearanced right guard (without coupons, used those last week because I wasn’t sure if the clearanced stuff would still be there). They were 2.29 BOGO. Got 4 and the 4RR printed. 14 cents per deodorant ain’t bad.
I also did the coke deal twice. I used RR from the past (rembrant ones from yesterday) and the 10RR printed both times.

Reply

Amber March 11, 2012 at 2:01 pm

was your total $20 after you used the RR?

Reply

stacia March 11, 2012 at 1:50 pm

oh, and the One A Day 60 count priced at 7.99 was not working for the $4 off, but my store adjusted the price to 3,99 and then I used the $2 off coupon from an insert and the $1 off coupon from the monthly book!

Reply

dropofrain March 11, 2012 at 5:36 pm

interesting. my One A Day 100 ct wasn’t working for $4 off discount either……. my store adjusted the price anyways, but manager seemed to be irritated

Can you just buy 1 of the seed packets?

I’m going to start using them as fillers.

and can you donate them?

Reply

Joan March 11, 2012 at 4:22 pm

Yes, you can just buy one of the seed packets (or however many you might need as fillers). I would assume you could donate them although I’m not sure exactly where.

Donna March 11, 2012 at 4:03 pm

I am a bit confused on the coke deal. Can someone please explain if the total has to be $20 to get the RR or can you bring your total down with previous RR and STILL get the the $10 RR ?

Reply

Ali B March 11, 2012 at 4:17 pm

I would love to do the Coke/candy deal using a combo of RR from Huggies (expire today) and free 12-pk MQs from MCR. Has anyone had any issues getting the $10 RR to print when there is zero OOP?

Reply

Katie March 11, 2012 at 5:39 pm

I was able to my oop was only tax i used $20 in RR most from last week….. but some are saying that they were not able to. I am in WI

Christi March 11, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Today I bought 3 of the women’s one a day and 2 of the men’s and they both rang up at normal price ( 7.99 and 8.99) but i didn’t notice til i left so i will figure out what to do about that later lol. i also bought 4 of the bayer aspirins and the right guard deal and got the $4 right guard RR and also a $5 bayer one- the upc code matches the aspirin though and not the vitamins?? so not sure which one made it print

Reply

James March 11, 2012 at 4:50 pm

what one a day (mens) did you get?? The bottle or the box?? Also did it ring up correctly with the $4off??

Reply

Christi March 12, 2012 at 8:20 am

its a bottle in a box lol – they were just the normal ones- like 100 ct. i believe- but no they did not ring up with the $4 off- I am going in today to return them haha

Reply

Dawna March 11, 2012 at 4:43 pm

One of our local Walgreens stores had some of the Right Guard Total Defense 5 Deodorants on clearance for 2.29. I bought 2 of the regular price and two of the clearance ones so that I could still use my $3 off 2 internet printable coupons. Our stores do not adjust coupons down. The way they rang it up made one of the clearance ones free and one of the regular priced ones free. So the total came to $6.78 and then I had $6 in coupons….and got the $4 catalina….WoooooHooooo :)

stephanie March 13, 2012 at 1:06 am

i got the Right Guard RR to print for the deo and not for the body wash. i am in the louisville, KY area. so weird. still a good deal but i prob wouldn’t have bought all those body washes.
