The Walgreens Challenge officially begins!
It was a strong start. I purchased $41.26 in products and spent .76 for it!
I have $85.24 left on my gift card plus $14 in register rewards for a total of $99.24 in challenge dollars remaining.
Here is what I did (it worked so well, I did it twice! I needed separate transactions to get all my register rewards)
4 bags Hershey’s “Pieces” Candy on sale 2.50 each
-4 $1 off coupons from the paper a few weeks ago (I had 1 from the paper and got the remaining from the coupon master-a clipping service)
Buy $10 in Hershey’s receive $5 in Register Rewards
1 20ct Excedrin Menstrual formula on sale for 2.50 each (I know! This deal is the ultimate PMS survival kit!)
-1 $2 off Excedrin printable (I got the link from the Iheartwags website)
Buy 1 get $2 in register rewards (only works for the menstrual formula, which is why I got that one)
Each separate transaction was $7.38 and gave me $7 in register rewards
I did this twice, so my entire haul was 8 bags of candy and 2 Excedrin. I only have a picture from 1 transaction. The other candy and Excedrin are at my office.
PLUS I got 2 coupons for $1 off 1 bag of M and M’s(1 printed after each of my transactions). They are good until 4/21 so I’m thinking I’ll get a pretty sweet deal on holiday clearance after Easter if I don’t use them before. Nice!
