Walgreens: My Cheap Pillow Pet Plan

I am very excited about the deals available right now at Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid.  In fact I am going to take advantage of the money maker deals at Walgreens to get my kids the pillow pets they want to get.  I already got one last night and this is what I did:

Pillow Pet $19.99
Used $3/$15 Walgreens coupons from getting the flu shot (my arm still hurts :-()
Use two $5/1 register rewards form buying Cold Eeze two weeks ago
Paid $6.99 out of pocket plus I got a Walgreens coupon for $5 off $25

This is my plan for today.  It will take three transactions to get my cheap pillows.  I will do this transaction twice, as I have two $5/1 coupons:

Buy the Secret $3.49
Buy Olay body wash $3.49
Use the $5 Coupon
Pay just $1.98 and get back $5.99 in Jingle Cash


Buy Pillow Pet $19.99
Buy Herbal Essences $2.49
Buy Colgate Toothpaste $2.99
3 Small fillers $0.99 total
Use $5/25 coupon
Use $11.98 in register rewards from the transactions above
Use $1/1 Herbal Essences coupon
Pay $8.48 and get back $4.50 in register rewards

That’s how I play the Drugstore Game to use moneymaker deals (Secret and Olay) to pay less for things I want (pillow pets).  Then I will probably go back on Saturday to use the $4.50 in RRs I got back to get some hair elastic bands which I need.

What’s your plan?

  • I got a $5 off $15 coupon in the mail from Bed Bath & Beyond – it doesn’t exclude Pillow Pets! Yay!

  • heidi

    where did you get the 5 off 25 coupon?

    • Heidi,
      It printed for me on Wednesday night when I bought another pillow pet.

    Were you able to use the Olay/Secret RR to buy the Herbal Essence?

    • Alisha,
      I didn’t try yet. I used them to buy the pillow pet and colgate and scunci.

    I used the $10off coupon at Hallmark on black friday. They had a duck pillow pet for $20 minus 20% (black friday deal) -$10 coupon = $6.95 after tax 🙂
    I still need 2 more though so I plan on getting them at Walgreens as well. (I needed pull ups though and already used the bulk of my money maker RR on them.) Oh well, I’ll still use a couple register rewards when I get them and it will mean less out of pocket. Hope to get a $5/$25 coupon like you did though 🙂
