Today's Walgreens Shopping Trip :: I Saved $32.39!

This morning my girls and I ran into Walgreens for a quick trip to purchase some cheap diapers!  I had some Balance Rewards points to use ($10 worth) and also (4) $1.50/1 Walgreens Diaper coupons.  I also had  $2 Register Reward from my last shopping trip.  

Here's what we bought and the breakdown of the details:


(1) Sinful Nail Polish, $1.99 (sort of blends in to the picture, but it's there)--no coupon, but I needed a "filler" item because I wanted to use my $2 Register Reward.

(4) Well Beginnings Diapers, $5.50 sale price ($8.79 each regularly)--used (4) $1.50/1 Well Beginnings Diapers coupons HERE

Total amount BEFORE coupons, reward points and sales :: $40.63

Total amount AFTER coupons, reward points and sales :: $8.24

As mentioned above, I used my loyalty card number to receive the sale prices.  I also used (4) $1.50/1 coupons and a $2 Register Reward.  I then used $10 of my Balance Reward points to pay which brought my total WITH tax to only $8.24......that's cheaper than ONE bag of diapers at regular price!  

I saved $32.39!  I love cheap diapers!  :)

Price Match at Nichols (Week of Oct. 12th)

                                    


Some of you probably already know that Nichols has a price matching policy.  This, in my opinion, is the number one best way to save money in Ada.  You can price match any local ad and then use your coupons (which still double) to rack up some major savings. 


Here’s a quick overview of how it works:

**You must use a local ad.  If you are shopping at a Nichols store in another town besides Ada, you can only use ads to stores that are local to your town.  My matchups will reflect Ada local stores.

**You must bring the ad with you to the checkout line.  You will be asked to cut out the part of the ad that you are matching and give it to the cashier.

**The item must be the exact same brand, size, variety, etc in order to be price matched.  They do not match price per pound items such as meat or fruit, however, if it is meat or fruit with a fixed price feel free to match it.

**Nichols no longer price matches Walgreens due to their loyalty program.

**You will need to be organized and be ready to tell the cashier the price of the item you are matching before he/she scans it.  I recommend you printing this list or making your own to have it handy in the checkout line so you’re not fumbling through all the ads.  (although you still need them to show the cashier).


It may sound like a lot of work, but you’ll be consistently saving a lot of money!  Yes, you can price match at Walmart, but they sure don’t double the coupon on top of the price match savings!  Price matching when paired with double coupons is the best of the best when it comes to saving money!
