My Quick Trip to Walgreens

Since I had the BOGO Revlon coupon and I had a spend $20 get 5,000 points offer, I bought a $12.79 Revlon lip and a $8.99 Revlon lip.  The BOGO Revlon coupon took off the $12.79 automatically which left $8.99 out of pocket.

I then totally forgot what store I was at and I used 10,000 ($10) Balance Rewards points to reduce my actual out of pocket and I paid $0.62. I got back a $10 RR, a $5 off Revlon/Almay coupon and another spend $20 get 5,000 points coupon.

I had forgotten the Walgreens Points Rules – If the offer is spend X get back X points, you cannot use points to pay if you want to get points back.  However, if the offer is Buy X(1, 2, 3, etc) get back X points, you can use points.

Thankfully,  I happened to get my 5,000 in Beauty Club points with this transaction!  This means that I still have the spend $20 get 5,000 points offer so I can do the deal again the right way.  What’s even more insane is that I received $200+ in Visa gift cards, $50 Ross gift card and a $50 Chik-Fila for Christmas, I wouldn’t have any out of pocket.

I will do once more to get the other 5,000 points without spending points and using the Visa gift card.
