Walgreens Shopping Plan ~ Week of 4-21-13

This is my Walgreens shopping plan for the week of 4-21-13. In my opinion, Walgreens can be very tricky to navigate especially since they rolled out the Balance Rewards program.  Now, to take advantage of these deals you must sign up for the Balance Rewards program. It’s free and only takes a few minutes to sign up.  I have mine set to our phone number so the whole family can use it and we don’t have to all carry a card. I just enter my phone number before my transaction begins and that’s it.  The trickest part of shopping at Walgreens is you have to have the same number of products as you do coupons. The Balance Rewards DO NOT count as coupon like the Register Rewards do.
