Sunday Savings: Beckees Best of Walgreens

As a bit of an intro, since I started shopping at Walgreens and getting Register Rewards (RR), I seem to always have RRs that I need to use before they expire. In case you do not know, RR are the same as Catalinas at other stores which are basically coupons you get back for future purchases. Well, I try to "roll" the rewards by using them to pay for things that give me new RR, and it is a bonus when those things I can roll are things I really need, or can get free.

This list will include items with RRs this week that I think are good, as well as any deals that I think are worth mentioning (even if they do not have RR). This is NOT a comprehensive list, just the items I think are great deals. Please see your local ad to see ALL your local deals this week.

First, the items that are "like getting them free" after RR:
  • Goody Ouchies $2.99, get $2.99 RR, Like getting FREE

Go! Play Adventure 2 in Omaha!!

This is awesome! I had not heard of this until I read the newspaper yesterday and now I feel motivated to do this as a family!

Did you local readers know about Go! Play Adventure here in Omaha? Apparently it is a FREE family treasure hunt activity. It is to try to get families out to play and visit local parks and attractions. You basically get a guidebook and follow clues to figure out where the 25 posts are located in the city. As a family you go to the posts and make a rubbing of the post graphic in your guidebook. When you have 20 or 25 done, prizes are given.

I have not done this before, but it looks awesome, and there are a lot of places to pick up your guidebook:
  • Chalco Hills Recreation Area
  • Joslyn Art Museum
  • Fontenelle Forest
  • Hitchcock Nature Center
  • Mahoney State park
  • Bounce U
OR you can print one online at  You can also read more about this program here.
