Money Maker Walgreens Deal Today

I did the Walgreens deal that I mentioned earlier today, and it was a $2.94 money maker even after tax!  I was pleased that everything was in stock and that my register rewards printed without a hitch.  Here was my transaction:

Complete Multipurpose Solution: $7.99
Used $1/1 MF coupon
Earned $8 RR
Final Price: $1 overage

Huggies Little Movers Diapers: $8.99
Used $3/1 MF coupon
Earned $2 RR
Final Price: $3.99

Gillette Fusion Razor: $8.99
Used $4/1 MF coupon
Earned $4 RR
Final Price: 99¢

(2) Holiday Pencils: 20¢ each (filler)
Used in ad coupon

Used (2) $2 RR's from last week that were about to expire.
I will submit my receipt to Caregiver's Marketplace for a 75¢ rebate.
Total OOP: $16.88 + earned another $5 RR

Final after factoring in all RR's and rebate: $2.94 Money Maker!

Even if you don't have any register rewards from previous transactions to use it can still be a money maker.  See Heather's post here for details. 

Just as a reminder, always check the expiration date on your register rewards.  The $5 RR expires in 4 days, and all of the others do not expire until December 30th.  I have wasted a few RR's because I  neglected to check the date, and that is like throwing away money!

Caregiver's Marketplace is a great program to help save more money on diapers.  You earn 75¢ for each pack of diapers, which in time adds up!

Wow! Great Deals! I use Caregiver's Marketplace too. You might want to make sure you submit your rebates by the end of the year. I'm not sure if they have a rule where all of your receipts have to be from the same year. Anyone else know about this? I've been meaning to call and ask them. I had five and I just sent mine off last week, all of them being 2009 purchases.

That's a good point. It does say submit by 2009 at the end of the form! I have several receipts to turn in. Let me know if you hear anything and vise versa!
