I got "paid" a Penny to Buy $89 in items

To read this weeks Walgreens match ups click here!

I was able to buy $89.14 worth of items, and got “paid” $.01 cent.
Here is how I did it, After 6 trips into 3 different Walgreens:
6 bags of Halls-$2.94
1 bottle Joy dish soap-.69 cents
1 bottle shave gel- .49 cents
Bandaids– .87 cents
Venus Shaver- $1.00
Gillette shavers- earned $6.00
Total cost (profit) .01 cents + tax

  • Final cost .69!

  • use in-store coupon from ad
  • Use the .50 coupon from the 12/7 or 1/11SS

  • Buy 1- get $6 in register rewards (good towards your next purchase)
  • use the $2 coupon from the 2/8 P&G Sunday coupon insert

Gillette Fusion Gamer razor $8.99,

  • Buy 1- get $6 in register rewards (good towards your next purchase)
  • use the $4 coupon from the 2/8 P&G Sunday coupon insert
  • Final cost FREE and you earn $1
Clearance items
  • Bandaids on clearance .87 cents
  • Gillette Shave Gel clearance to $1.49 used 1.00 coupon paid .49 cents
Just so you know, I did pay $35.93 out of pocket for just the 7 razors. But for each one I got back a $6 register rewards, (I got $42.00 back in register rewards).  I can use these on my next shopping trip at Walgreens or my local Albertsons, they also take them.  I will use my $42.00 register rewards this week
 instead of cash.

Q&A:  Why did you pay cash for each razor, why didn’t you just use your register rewards from the razor you bought before?  I paid for my razors with cash to get back my $6 register rewards for each item. If I bought a razor and then get one register reward back for $6 off on my next purchase then my next purchase (using that same register reward) has to be a completly different type of item for a “new register reward” to print out. For example I could use a toothpaste register rewards on the razors, and then a “new register reward” for $6 would print out again. But I choose to save them and use them on items I need right now (at either Walgreens or Albertsons) that are not on sale. So yes I did spend money, $35.93, but I got back $42.00 in register rewards I can use at two different stores on what ever I want.
