To get the biggest savings at Wags, you’ll need to take advantage of their Balance Reward Deals (BRs) AND Register Reward Deals (RRs) PLUS use coupons!
The Best way to save the MOST is to alternate between Earning BRs and then using those BRs to buy items that generate RRs.
IMPORTANT SHOPPING NOTES:
- The best way to maximize the Rewards system at Walgreens is to use your BRs to purchase items that generate RRs. Then turn around and use the RRs to buy items that generate BRs. Essentially you are using the TWO Rewards opposite of each other so that you can maximize your money!
- Pay Attention: You cannot use BRs to buy additional BR items because they cancel each other out and therefore you would lose your rewards.
That means the strategy is to do one 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:
TRANSACTION #1: Best Deal Scenario to EARN BRs:
Buy: (8) Blistex Lip Medex Analgesic Lip Protectant .25 oz. at Regular Price for 2/$3 = $12
Use: (4) $1/2 Blistex Lip Care Product, exp. 1/27/18 (SS 12/03/17 R) (minus $4)
Pay: $12 (product total) – $4 (coupon total) = $8 OOP
EARN: 2,000 BRs ($2.00) wyb $10 + 120 Everyday Points ($.12) = $2.12 Plus earn another $12 towards your 5K Beauty Enthusiast Reward Points!
Final price: $5.88 for all (8) Blistex! That’s just 74¢ each!
**Remember, add in fillers to use any RRs you may already have on hand from last week (which will reduce your OOP).
TRANSACTION #2: USE BRs (earned in Transaction #1) and EARN Register Rewards:
Buy: (2) Gillette MACH3 Base Razor at Regular Price for $7.99 = $15.98
Buy: (1) Gillette Venus Simply Venus Refillable Disposable Razor with 4 Razor Refills 1 ct at Regular Price for $7.99
Use: (2) $3/1 Gillette System Razor printable [Excludes Disposables] (minus $6)
Use: (1) $3/1 Gillette OR Venus/Daisy Disposable (2ct or larger) (excludes Sensor2 2ct, and Daisy 2ct), exp. 12/30/17 (Walgreens Digital Coupon)
Subtotal: $23.97 (product total) – $9 (coupon total) = $14.97 Subtotal
REDEEM: 2,000 BRs (minus $2)
Pay: $12.97 OOP
GET BACK: $10 RRs + 230 Every Day Points (= $12.30 in Rewards) Plus earn another $23 toward your 5K Beauty Enthusiast Reward Points!
WHAT DID IT ALL REALLY COST?
The Total of All Products Before Coupons or RRs would have been $29.70!
Transaction #1 = $8.00
Transaction #2 = $14.97
Price OOP is $22.97! BUT you still have the $10 RRs, and $2.42 in Every Day Points to use later!
Final Price: That’s just $10.55 Total! For all (11) items!
And you’ve earned $35 toward your 5K Beauty Enthusiast Reward Points!
This Deal ends when the sale ends on Saturday 12/30/17!
