My Weekly Haul From Walgreens for $2.14!

I absolutely love shopping at Walgreens. I actually started shopping at the store because the pharmacy is literally two miles from my house and I needed to switch to a closer pharmacy as my previous pharmacy was twenty miles away and proved to be too far to drive when I got very sick for several months. Since I started shopping there, I've learned a thing or two and now shop there each and every week.

The first thing you should know about shopping at Walgreens is that you can earn Balance Rewards. You earn 10 points for every $1 spent. The longer you save your points, the more they're worth. For example, 40,000 points are worth fifty-dollars. You can earn bonus points by buying certain items. You can find these items by looking in the sale paper or checking for green tags throughout the store.

This week I decided to cash in my points. You can keep earning points past $50, but you can only cash in $50 at one time so I decided to go ahead and cash in. I had over $90 in products and after sales, coupons, and Balance Rewards, I spent only $2.14! Here's what I got:

4 - Aquafina 24 - 16.9 ounce bottles - $2.99 each (Regularly $5.99 each)
2 - Prego Pasta Sauce - $1.50 each (Regularly $3.29 each)
2 - Kellogg's Raisin Bran $1.38 each (Regularly $4.49 each)
Disney Mystery Mini Figure - $5.99
Tide Simply Clean & Fresh - $1.99 (Regularly $6.99)
Pure Maple Syrup - $4.99 (Regularly $6.49)
4 - Pringles - $1.25 each (Regularly $1.99 each)
2 - Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Crackers - $2 each (Regularly $2.49 each)
Pepperidge Farm Cookies - $2.99 (Regularly $3.49)
Lay's Family Size Chips - $1.99 (Regularly $4.29)
Doritos Family Size - $1.99 (Regularly $4.29)
2 - Ritz Bits Crackers - $2 each (Regularly $3.99 each)

Subtotal - $50.66
Tax A = $0.61
Tax B = $0.87
Total =  $52.14
Rewards Redemption = $50.00
Total Paid = $2.14

Balance Rewards Savings (Sales) = $37.82
Store Coupon = $1.50
Manufacturer Coupons = $2.00

Total Savings - $41.32 - 45%

I clipped coupons to my card through the Walgreens website to get both store and manufacturer coupon savings. The biggest savings came from shopping items that were on sale.

Later this week, I plan to go back and shop for items that have great bonus points. For example, throughout the month of July, you can spend $25 on bath and beauty or personal care products and get 5000 bonus points. I also received a bonus offer to get 7000 points when I spend twenty-dollars. There are also a few other special bonus points in this week's sale that I was to cash in on, such as 5000 points for buying three Dove shampoo or body wash products.

I hope this has inspired you to shop at your local Walgreens. You really can score some great deals. The best tip I can give is to buy the items that give you the most bonus points for the least amount of money.
