Top 5 Walgreens Deals, Save on Movie Rental, Beer Tasting Deal, Free Item at Bath & Body Works!

Sara Conrad from SarandipitySaves.com shows you that being cheap can be oh-so chic with daily fortuitous frugal discoveries.

Holy moly. Christmas is THIS weekend. Yikes!

Walgreens to the last minute rescue with some sweet deals this week!

Walgreens makes saving money pretty easy with their Register Rewards program. Each week there are oodles of deals which produce Register Rewards, or RR for short. They will print with your receipt at the checkout and can be used on future purchases like cash. 

There are a couple caveats though. You can not use a RR to purchase an item from the same brand as what the RR originally developed from. When you use the RR just make sure you do not use it to buy other items from said company. The RR will usually say "Compliments of [Enter Brand Name Here]" so it's pretty easy to avoid double dippin'.

Also, if you're using manufacturer couponpons make sure you do not have more items in your transaction than you do manufacturer coupons. For instance...if you have 3 items and 4 manufacturer coupons (Register Rewards are manufacturer coupons), you'll need one more item or the register will beep & not allow you to use all 4 coupons. This is where filler items come in handy. I like to add the little 39¢ caramels that are right at the register. Not only are they delicious, they help me save even more money by balancing out my transaction per Walgreen's policy. It's just one of those little trip-ups Walgreens is famous for. 

I know it's all pretty confusing, but in the end it's so worth it as you'll be saving like whoa. To clear it up, you can check out their entire coupon policy right here
