Top 5 Deals This Week: Walgreens 10/24 - 10/30 (I'm SO Sorry for the long post)

Here are the Top 5 Deals that I've found at Walgreens for the week of 10/24 - 10/30.
Thanks goes out to Coupons Are GREAT for the original information!

#1} Contac Cold + Flu (28 ct.), $6, Receive $6 Register Reward
     - $2/1 Printable or (10/10 RP) *printable notes: must register with site, must be 18 or older*
     Final Cost: $4.00 + tax out of pocket; $6.00 Register Reward Received
     - Was paid about $2.00.

#2} Colgate Sensitive Toothpaste (6 oz.), $3.49, Receive $3.50 Register Reward
     - $1/1 (10/10 SS)
     Final Cost:  $2.50 + tax out of pocket; $3.50 Register Reward Received

     Final Cost: $6.00 + tax out of pocket; submit rebate for approx. $6.00
     - Paid tax -> Completely Free

#5} Pill Glide Swallowing Spray (1 oz.), $5.99, Receive Try Me Free Rebate *Prints at Register*
     Final Cost: $5.99 + tax out of pocket; submit rebate for approx. $6.00
     - Paid tax -> Completely Free

Think those deals are great? How about we put them in order to keep our final out of pocket total under $20.00? 
*Note: Ask the cashier before you try to do multiple transactions, some store will only allow one transaction per customer.* [RR = Register Reward - considered manufacturer coupons that will print with your reciept after you purchase certain item(s) in the store]

  Try this scenario when you go shopping next week to stay under $20.00:

- Follow #2. You should pay $2.50 + tax and receive a RR for $3.50 
  Congratulations, You just made $1.00!

- Follow #1 BUT also find a cheap filler item for $0.50 (Can be cheaper, I just used this as an average filler price.) Use the $3.50 RR you received earlier. You should pay $1.00 + tax and receive a RR for $6.00
  Congratulations, You've just made $5.00!

  Here you can follow either #3, #4, or #5 depending upon which way you want to spend the $6.00 RR.
  You can decide on which products you want for free or to make approx. $6.00 on.
  We'll continue with transactions #3, then #4, and finally #5.

- Follow #3 BUT find another filler item for $0.50 and use the $6.00 RR you received earlier. You should pay $1.50 + tax and receive a Mail - In - Rebate worth approx. $7.00
  Once you've sent and  received the Mail - In - Rebate, you made $5.50, Congratulations!

- Follow #4. You should pay $6.00 + tax and receive a Mail - In - Rebate worth approx. $6.00
  Once you've sent and received the Mail - In - Rebate, you have picked up a FREE Product!

-Follow #5. You should pay $5.99 + tax and receive a Mail - In - Rebate worth approx. $6.00
  Once you've sent and received the Mail - In - Rebate, you have picked up a FREE Product!

I would like to point out that by putting these transactions in order we saved approximately $8.50 more than if we had just bought them according to the first list. This shows that by planning your trips, you can save even more money instantly at the register!

*If you don't put these transaction in the described order, you'll end up paying approx. $25.50 at the register, with an approximate total of $28.50 received after RR's and reabates. If you put them in order you pay approx. $17.00 at the register, with an approximate total of $19.00 received after rebates.* 

I hope that was easy for ya'll to follow, if not just leave a comment and I'll try to explain better. So that's the Top 5 Deals for Walgreens. I really hope this helps some of ya'll save money!

*Complete Post Notes: I do not have a current store ad to verify these deals, However,  I trust Coupons Are GREAT blog that these deals are to be valid on said dates. Also I do not personally shop at Walgreen due to numerous problems I've had at multiple store locations. However, based on my knowledge of how to shop at Walgreen, you should not have any issues buying according to these scenarios.*
