Walgreens Black Friday 2011- If Walgreens Confuses You


Just like last year Walgreens has some awesome Black Friday deals.  In previous years these deals have also been available on Thanksgiving Day- I am not sure if they will do that this year or not.

I wanted to do a simple Black Friday Walgreens post for those of you who aren’t really comfortable at Walgreens yet, to sort of explain how things work.

Walgreens have something called Register Rewards.  They print out on long, white pieces of paper after you do your transaction.  Walgreens treats them (in most ways) just like a Walgreens gift certificate.  In coupon math if you spend $2 on something but you get $2 in Register Rewards back we consider that a FREE item. 

On Black Friday 2011 there will be MANY items that are FREE after Register Rewards.  Here is a list of some of the more popular items:

Advil PM Pain Relief (4 ct.) – $0.99
Get $0.99 in Register Rewards
Final Price: FREE

Oral-B Indicator Toothbrush – $1.50
Get $1.50 in Register Rewards
Final Price: FREE

ThermaCare HeatWrap – $2.49
Get $2.49 in Register Rewards
Final Price: FREE

Colgate Pro Clinical, Total Advanced, or Gum Defense Toothpaste (4 oz) – $3
Get $3 in Register Rewards
Final Price: FREE

Crest 3D White Vivid Toothpaste (4 oz) – $2.50
Get $2.50 in Register Rewards
Final Price: FREE

So to maximize your savings you want to use Register Rewards to buy items that give you other Register Rewards.

Here is a simple example:

Go into Walgreens and pay $2.49 for the Therma Care Heat Wrap. You will get $2.49 in Register rewards.

Then go grab the $.99 Advil and the $1.50 Oral B Indicator Toothbrush. When they ring those two items up they will equal $2.49. Then give them the $2.49 in Register Rewards you earned when you purchased the Therma Care Heat Wrap.

That would bring your total to $0 and you would just have to pay sales tax.  And once you are finished you will have a new $2.49 in Register Rewards.

So for $2.49 you would get the toothbrush, the Advil and the Therma Care Heat Wrap plus $2.49 in Register Rewards.

Then, if you wanted to, you could grab the Crest 3D White Vivid Toothpaste.  It will ring up $2.50.  Give them your $2.49 in Register Rewards and you will pay $.01 plus sales tax.  PLUS you will get another $2.50 in Register Rewards.

So after 3 transactions you will have Advil, an Oral B Toothbrush, a Therma Care Wrap and Crest Toothpaste for $2.50 out of pocket (plus tax).  AND you will still have $2.50 in Walgreens credit to use on something else!

The drug stores can give you great chances to save LOTS of money!

Would You Pay For Reserved Parking On Black Friday?


There is a Living Social deal (South Hampton Roads) currently available that has me so surprised I immediately screened my blogging friends to see what they thought.  The conclusion: it’s either insane or genius.  So I am asking you what you think.

You can purchase a VIP Shopping Experience for 2 at one of the local malls (Chesapeake Square for those of you who live in my area).  For $10 you get a reserved parking place at the Simon Mall location at Chesapeake Square on November 25. Your package comes with a preferred parking pass (which includes all-day in-and-out privileges) and access for two people to a VIP lounge, which has refreshments provided throughout the day. You’ll be decking the halls of your home more joyfully once you’ve made the most on your purchasing power while simultaneously enjoying the A-list treatment.

So would you pay $10 for parking and snacks on Black Friday?  I am dying to know!

Amazon & Walmart Watch Each Other


Last year during the holidays I noticed something VERY interesting (atleast to me).

Amazon & Walmart watch each other.

If Walmart  lowered a price on an item, you could be sure in 20 minutes Amazon had also lowered it. 

This morning another blogger reported a deal on a cute toy at Walmart.com.  Their site appears to be wonky right now  so I went over to Amazon.  The deal was a pretty significant discount off the regular price and sure enough, the toy is the exact same sale price at Amazon.

So if you like Amazon better than Walmart or just don’t want to deal with going to the store to pick up items at Walmart (their ship to store is free), always check Amazon.com. 

Odds are you can get the same item at almost the exact price.

And if you are interested in the item it is the Vtech Ride and Learn Giraffe Bike for $29.97.
