    Yep..that's right. I MADE $40+ at Walgreens yesterday. To tell you the truth, I made closer to $70, but this picture reflects $40 PLUS free merchandise!

    How I Did It:

    As 4 separate transactions, I purchased 4 Bayer glucose monitors. Each monitor was on sale for $19.99 AND was issuing a $10 Register Reward. I used the FREE coupon (up to $30) from the 10/25 RP and got each monitor for FREE plus I made $10 RR on each!

    Then, I turned around and "rolled" 2 of those $10 RR to grab some freebies and make a couple bucks at the same time.

    I purchased these items (I did this twice):

    (1) Placker's Dental Floss Picks $2
    - Received $2 in RR
    = FREE (after RR)

    (1) Skintimate Shaving Gel $2.99
     - Received $3 in RR
    = FREE (after RR)

    (1) Stayfree Maxi Pads $2.99
    - Used $2/1 coupon from 3/28 Red Plum insert
    - Received $2.99 in RR
    = $2 Money Maker (after RR)

    (1) Beauty Trim $4.99
    - Received $5 in RR
    = FREE (After RR)

    I used a $10 RR to pay for all of the above & spent $1.08 out of pocket. But then I received $13 back in Register Rewards, making all of these items FREE and a $2 Money Maker!

    ***You can do better than me by using the 50¢/1 Plackers coupon from the 4/18 RP to make your out of pocket aroung 50¢!
