Walgreens-ShoppingWalgreens Shopping Scenarios
for 12/31 – 1/6!


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.



  • 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: (3) Charmin Bath Tissue, 12 regular rolls on Sale for $4.99 = $14.97 (earn 6,000 BRs wyb $20 in Bounty or Charmin)
