Walgreens Money Maker!

Did you print your coupon from the coupons.com widget on this site? If not be sure to print your $5/$20 coupon to complete this money maker!

Note: Thanks to a reader who alerted me that my 1st plan was not going to work like I had hoped.. lets try this new one!
  • Buy 1 FAR Loreal Pro-Calcium Perfector=14.99 (this week)
  • Buy 1 Almay mascara if you have not done so=6.99
  • Buy 1 Progesso soup=1.25
  • Total=23.23
  • Use this 1.10/1 progresso coupon
  • Use 2/1 Loreal coupon (redeemable only at Walgreens)
  • =20.13
  • -$5/$20 coupon
  • New Total=15.13 and you can turn in for a total of 21.98 in rebates= overage of 6.85!!!!
Remember your total must equal $20 after all MF and Walgreens coupons not including the 5/20 coupon.

There's a bit of a snag in your plan as the FAR item is on sale for $14.99 this week. Also, the Loreal skincare Qs say redeemable only at Walgreens on them.

This is what I bought:

L'Oreal FAR item=$14.99
3 bags of Hershey's Kisses (for Christmas baking=$6
Napkins=$2.50
2 Scotch tape (wrapping gifts)=$129 each

I used my 5/20, 2/1 L'Oreal, $1/3 Hershey kisses printable, $1/2 ES for kisses, B1G1 free in-ad for Scotch tape. My subtotal was $15.27, and I will receive $14.99 in rebate.

I'm new to this Walgreen thing. What is an FAR item and how do you know about / get the rebates?

Thanks!

FAR stands for free after rebate. You find out about these by picking up what is called an Easy Saver Catalog (found at the front of the store by the weekly ads. This contains coupons and a list of things you will get a rebate for when you purchase it.

You get the rebates by submiting them online at the end of the month. There should be instructions for you in the book or online.

You can also see this great post here about understanding walgreens better.
