How was your Thanksgiving? I hope you had a wonderful time with your loved ones! I kind of suck at shopping at Walgreens. For some reason I always leave CVS and Rite Aid without spending more than a dollar or two, but Walgreens always gets at least $5.00 out of me somehow. I obviously need to figure out what I am doing wrong so I can save even more money. I didn't have any Register Rewards going into this transaction, but I did have some Balance Rewards on my card. Balance rewards are points you get over time for certain purchases and you can use them like cash.
Here's what I got at Walgreens...
Pssst! Instant Dry Shampoo $4.99, get $4.99 RR = essentially FREE!
Vidal Sassoon Moisture Conditioner on clearance for $2.49
Use Peelie coupon attached, $2 off any Vidal Sassoon Styling Product exp. 12-31-13
Use $5.00 Balance Rewards credit = $0.98
Get $4.99 RR
Walgreens Maxi Pads $1.99, get $1.99 RR = essentially FREE!
2 Scunci Hair Elastics 2/$3.00, get $3.00 RR = essentially FREE!

I would have spent $26.72 without rolling my RR and using my Balance Rewards. I spent a total of $5.90 and I left the store with $9.00 RR to use on my next transaction. Essentially I made $3.10 in Register Rewards to go shopping today! Not too bad!
Yay for Black Friday! Have you been shopping today? I'd love to hear what goodies you found in the comments below!
