Thrifty Almay deal at Walgreens

Spread the love

Before Sale Price or Coupons this would have cost $16.14

I was able to get it all for $3.49

Plus I still have $10 in Register Rewards to use towards my next purchase

Its Friday and I am just now getting into Walgreens ( been a very busy week) I thought for sure all the Almay would be gone since it is such a thrifty deal this week…but I was happy to see lots left.

Here was the  deal scenario I showed you on Sunday with the full match up.

Almay Cosmetics 30% off, get a $5 Register Reward when you buy one
{Scenario}

  • (1) Almay Intense I Color Eye Shadow Set, Eyeliner or Mascara $5.59 sale price
  • use the $2 from 3/6 Smart Source ( did not get in our area)
  • and the $2 from the Walgreens Spring Beauty Guide (ask at the beauty counter, not all stores have it)
  • get back $5 Register Reward after you pay
  • Final Price: FREE with $1.41-$3.41 profit

Here is how my 2 transactions went. I started out with 2 $2 RR from last weeks deals.

Transaction #1

  • Alway eyeshadow $5.59 sale price
  • used $2.00 Walgreens spring beauty guide coupon
  • paid with a $2.00 RR
  • final price $1.59 plus $.34 tax =$1.93
  • after I paid got back a $5 RR ( turns it into a money maker deal)

Transaction #2

  • Alway eye liner $5.24 sale price
  • used $2.00 Walgreens spring beauty guide coupon
  • paid with a $2.00 RR
  • final price $1.24 plus $.32 tax =$1.56
  • after I paid got back a $5 RR ( turns it into a money maker deal)

WALGREENS TIPS

  • To view Walgreens official coupon policy click here
  • I always check out at the cosmetics counter, and if anyone comes behind me I let them go first, so I do not hold up the line.
  • One thing to remember about Walgreens RR (register reward) is you can not use a “chap stick RR” to pay for another chap stick and have another RR print. BUT you can use a “toothpaste” RR to pay for chap stick and have another RR print.
  • Also remember that Walgreens has a coupon item ratio rule, you can only use as many coupons as you have items. They count RR as coupons. So if I was only buying 4 items ( all of which had manufacture coupons which meant my item coupon ratio was already 4 to 4) I wanted to pay with a RR I would need to ad a filler item something cheap like a pencil. This would then make my coupon ration 5 ( 4 manufacturer coupons and 1 register reward) and my item ratio 5. I then could pay with my coupons and RR with no problem. An instore coupon does NOT count as a coupon in this ratio….just as a sale price.
  • Also remember that only one RR per product will print per transaction. For example If wanted to buy 3 bottles of Aussie shampoo. In order to have 2 RR print for each one I had to buy them in 3 transactions. My store is happy to let me go thru the line more than once ……but some store will limit you.
  • You can not pay for sales tax with a RR
