Walgreens Deals 1/15: Facepalm!

I had $8 in Register Rewards expiring today, so that meant a trip to Walgreens was in order!  I took my oldest daughter with me before I took her to an appointment.

I wanted to get the South Beach snacks deal - buy one at $5.99, get $5.99 in Register Rewards.  So it's free! But I couldn't find them in the store.  I checked the granola bar area as well as the diet foods area - no South Beach items in either.

So I figured that my store didn't have that item in stock.  Oh, well.  I went to pick up a prescription from the Walgreens Pharmacy before checking out.

While I was waiting, my daughter walked to the end of the one of the aisle and pointed up high.  "There they are."

And indeed, the store did have the South Beach snacks.  They just had them in a standing display that was sitting on the very top shelf above the cold medicines.

Oh yeah, I should've looked there!  Duh! (facepalm!)

Really, Walgreens, if you want to get customers to buy your products, the customers have to be able to find them.

All's well that ends well.  I got the snacks, along with some feminine products:

1 South Beach snack bars @ $5.99 (receive $5.99 RR)
= $5.99 (free after RRs)

3 Kotex Natural Balance tampons @ 3/$9 (receive $3 RR)
- $1/2 Kotex Natural Balance Tampons, exp. 2/25/12 (SS 01/15/12)
= $8 for three, or $2.67 each ($1.67 after RRs)

Total product: $13.99
Pay with $8 in RRs from Walgreens January 1 trip
Total after RRs: $5.99
Tax: 53¢

Total out of pocket: $6.53
Total saved compared to Walgreens full prices: $12.97
RRs received: $9
