You know those people who have spending problems, who go shopping with the mentality that money is of no concern? Well, I’m pretty much the exact opposite— I have a saving problem. I can’t spend money on myself without feeling guilty. In the future, I’m going to have thousands of dollars in student loans to pay back, and I’ll need to find a way to financially support myself once I graduate instead of leaning on my mom. With these things in mind, picking up beauty products to incorporate into my blog posts and videos can sometimes be an internal struggle for me. What makes it easier is to always shop sales or to clip coupons.
But alas, who actually remembers to bring coupons to the store? I always tuck them into my wallet, but they usually get tossed before I get around to using them. So when Walgreens launched their paperless coupons section in the store’s mobile app, I was pretty excited.
Once you connect your Balance Rewards account to the app, you can browse through a bunch of digital manufacturer coupons that you may virtually “clip” to your card. They are automatically linked to your account, so once you check out with your membership card, they will apply to the transaction. Forgot your card? No worries, you can scan it from the app, too. Man, does this app know my life.
Oh, how I love seeing those yellow tags. The best part about the paperless coupons: you can combine them with the in-store sales. That’s exactly what I did! Check out what I picked up and how much I saved. Consider this a sneak peek into what might be featured on the blog later.
