Patrick's Walgreens Trip - 3/10/15 JUST $1.86 FINAL COST!

Here's my Walgreens shopping trip this evening, where I was able to take advantage of the last day for the Points Booster coupon in this week's circular.  Points Booster awards you 5,000 Balance Rewards Points ($5.00 value) when you spend $30 (before Walgreens coupons, but before manufacturer's coupons).  To get the lowest possible cost, keep your transaction as close to the $30 threshold (my trip below was $30.22 before coupons) and look for items that will be very low cost after coupons, rewards and rebates.  I originally was looking to buy the Irish Spring Gear, but my store was out, so I had to think on my feet and I went with the Zantac.  I also got a great deal on the clearance gum, which I needed as fillers to roll my two $5.00 Register Rewards.
