    Forgive me for my naivete, but when she says she did 3 transactions does that mean she went to three different Walgreens, or wandered around a bit and then made another transaction, or just told the guy at the cash register that she had three transactions? I have a toddler and can’t really imagine running around to a bunch of Walgreens though, man, this was such a great deal!

    • Gretchen says:

      I just do all the transactions at one time. I usually ask if it’s ok and they are very nice about it. If you can checkout at the cosmetic counter, that is the best place to do more than one transaction. There is no line behind you waiting and the cashiers there are usually very coupon friendly. I hope that helps!

        Thanks, Gretchen! That’s a great idea about checking out in cosmetics. I always feel bad about holding up the line! :/ You can audibly hear people sigh when you say you have more than one transaction, haha. 🙂

    Just wanted to point out the above deal. Have not seen it on other blogs. It is for the 8 count tampons – either scented or unscented. Did not notice if it was a limit 1 or 2 though.
