      So Walgreens is have the zarbees cough for free 2 weeks in a row?

      • Elisetdchavez

        i think in some areas it was this week and some places next week

    • Sindyt63

      Similisan (Rite Aid)- limit 1?  Just didn’t say. thx

    • Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Quick question, are the Walgreens RR able to be redeemed anywhere other than Walgreens ? 

      • Anonymous

        Publix stopped taking them and I no of no other place that takes them.

      • Ahpeal

        EVERY place should take Walgreens RRs. Publix takes them, CVS takes them, etc. They say “Manufacturer Coupons” on them and every register will scan them. The information for submitting to the vendor is on the Q, so it is legit. Try it!

        • Ginger

          My cvs won’t take them

      • Harris Teeter takes them.

      • They say they are manufacturer coupons on the top, so I don’t see why they wouldn’t be accepted anywhere else unless stated in the other store’s policies. If they don’t accept percentage or dollar amounts off of total purchased than most likely not. Never bothered to try it since I’d rather use them towards more items at Walgreens! :)

      • Anonymous

        bilo in greenwood sc takes them

      • Ludki

        Bi lo on NC Monroe takes them also

    • Ashera

      Theraflu has no coupons left to be printed

    • Rebecca

      Can someone please explain to me what is RR how it works? Thanks

      • walgreens/ RR =register reward.
        CVS /ECB= extra bucks
        rite aid/ +UP=the rite aid rewards

        They are the coupon that prints out at that specific store that for example buy 2 reeces at .$1 a piece and you get $1 RR it is like getting two reeces for $1 instead of 2 dollars and you can use the “reward” on pretty much anything in the store.

      • RR (Register Rewards) are given at Walgreens for purchasing certain items. The items are listed throughout the weekly ads and also are shown on Southern Savers website. Best to use them on other items that give RR back, just remember NEVER buy the same item twice in a row and you will be saving in no time. Hope this helps :)

      • Daisy6441

        Theyre only good for like two weeks so don’t be like me and forget to use a $5 RR! I try plan it out so I can use them the day I get them. I buy one thing that gives me RR then I buy something else and use the RR. My Walgreens wouldn’t let me use a manufacturer coupon with RR. They said you can’t use more than one “coupon” on a single item.

        • 1bigsaver

          That is the point of a “filler” item.  The number of coupons can not exceed the number of items you purchase at Walgreens.  CVS doesn’t have any restrictions like that.

      • Sheilakilby

        Go to Jenny’s video on Walgreens.  It is GREAT!  I have just started shopping there the RR system is good when you can get it to work.

      • Lucy2778

        The way it’s written, looks like you can mix and match, meaning buy 2 different products and still get the ECBs. I have done this before and always received ECBs.

    • Anonymous

      Looks like a big shopping week IF the stores actually have the items in stock! LOL

      • Lucy2778

        I know! Sometimes I get upset when I actually need the item and it’s not in stock… and sometimes I’m happy it’s not in stock because I didn’t want to spend money out of pocket anyway, and I get a rain check for when I have more money (or ECBs to spend lol)

      • Daisy6441

        Its so bad around here that if you don’t get to the store within a couple hours of opening you won’t get anything!

        • tak

          LOL   my local cvs won’t even have it at opening time.  Sales items always seem to be “out of stock”  even when I’m the first customer at opening on Sun.

    • Renlav2001

      The Theraflu coupons are no longer available but there is a coupon for $1/1 in the Walgreens Sept booklet, fyi.

    • MermaidNM

      I have a Colgate account but cannot figure out how to log in.  When I fill out the form, it tells me I have an account but won’t show me where to log in.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

      • Daisy6441

        It should be at the top on the homepage. 

    • Happyphotography

      My Rite Aid (Morristown, TN) had their Nyquil + Dayquil marked down to 75% off the day before yesterday – it’s actually free with overage with the $3/2 q’s.  You may have to do separate transactions though because they only allow 3 purchases of cold medicine per ‘birthday’ (they put your b’day into the register).

    • Jklyles1

      Just wondering how tax works. I bought 2 nivea bodywash for $2 and had $2 off. Walked out paying NOTHING! Bought two more at a different location and had to pay $.33 in tax. Whats the rule on tax???

      • Tljcnj

        In Florida your supposed to pay sales tax no matter what.  Some stores may not be set up properly though, or if they are running your coupons before hitting subtotal it could cancel out tax.

      • If you use manufacturer and store coupons on the same item, sometimes the order they scan them in makes a difference. I noticed this on Progresso soup once. I had a Walgreens coupon and a mfr coupon, and if they scanned the Walgreens coupon before the mfr coupon, I owed tax. If they scanned the mfr coupon then the Walgreens coupon, I owed nothing. The experienced cashiers usually know to scan the store coupons before the mfr coupons.

      • Pamgam1

        what location did you get the nivea bodywash for $2?

    • Guest

      I go to alot of
      auctions and I have been seeing every good deal posted here, that is
      free or close to it, show up at the auction tables…. people are
      bringing truck loads of the gillette, dial, soft scrub, klenex.. you
      name it…. and no WONDER I can’t find the 4-5 I need to stock up for my
      HUGE family to last me the 6 week sale cycle!  I can’t believe it!  I
      want to stand up and tell the crowd that they could get theirs for free
      with just one coupon, like the seller did… ack…

        Let’s hope retailers wise up and start imposing limits!

      • Mrscori2006

        Most coupons say that the product bought with the coupon should not be intended for resale.

    • Just FYI…I am not seeing the coupon for the Zarbees. Still can’t beat getting it for free though! :-)  Hopefully there will be some left when I get to the store. LOL

      • Linds..:)

        Yes…under what zip code is the Zarbees coupon please??

    • Scrappingramma5

      There was a Balance bar q in the 9/11..not sure which. This was a case where I was going to throw them away as I usually don’t buy those too often. But now that I see I can make .55 on each one I took them out of the recycle bin and hope to grab a few. I can send them with my college aged kids for when they cant afford to buy food at cafe…Zarbees must be out it worked at my Moms yesterday now I am home to print mine and they are gone:( maybe they will reset you never know…Theraflu is out too:( and when you do the renu it asks for reg or sensitive and this post says it is for sensitive so make sure you choose sensitive or it may not work..

    • Brenda Owens

      Has anyone had a problem getting duplicate receipts at CVS for rebates.  They told me they could not print out duplicates and the form calls for original receipts.  These rebates are going to different addresses so I called corporate.  They said the companies will take copies.  Has anyone had any luck with this? I told them I cannot understand offering a rebate when they cannot supply a duplicate receipt for the item.  Any suggestions?

      • Anonymous

        Companies will not take copies. At least, that has been my experience. Also, I have never been able to get a duplicate receipt at CVS but you could try returning the items and then purchasing them separately. Your store should be able to do that. If you were trying to double-dip on the rebates, I think you are out of luck.

    • Busscpn

      The softsoap campaign is over.   None of the walgreens or CVS sale items listed on this site are in my flyers dated sept 18-24th.  What’s up?   I’m in Pensacola.   The Publix sale lists is good, but not walgreens or CVS.  I see folks talking like they are getting these deals.   How if store flyer does not list them?

      • Little72197

        It’s for nexrt week – starting 9/25.

    • Just4yall

      I dont know if they are still there but the sunblock was on clearence at a couple of the walgreens a week or so ago. With the $4 off printable it might be a good deal.

    • Busscpn

      I don’t see my post, so I’m reposting.   My walgreens and CVS in Pensacola does not have any of these deals.   Do some areas offer different sale items?    My freebies for walgreens this week include Prevacid, Kids NightTime ColdN Cought, and Blixtex cold & allergy lip soothers.

    • Busscpn

      Ignore previous posts.  Finally noticed date 9/25.   guess these are sneak peeks for next week.

    • Kayriz10b

      Do these deals actually go into effect at 1201?? Let’s say I want these 9/25 deals.. can I get there 9/24 before midnight to do my shopping and then check out after midnight to get the deals??? Think this might be what I have seen referred to as a “midnight run.”

      • Cassidy

        actually if you call, some of the stores start their sales on saturday. I called and my store starts their sales saturday at 4 in the afternoon. its awsome unless you need a coupon from the sunday paper.

      I have went  to Walgreens three days since Sunday and they still do not have any of the childrens cold medicine that they advertised free after RR.  Do they give rain checks for RR?

      • Barbara

        No raincheck on RR. That’s what I hate about Walgreens. CVS has become my favorite. Love the coupons from the red box, rainchecks and the fact you can spend their ecb on anything!

      • Pennydealchick

        Have you asked when they restock. I never get my deals at the first of the week because of us couponers. However, if I wait till the last day I can find what I want and if I want more than 2 or 3 they are always nice about letting me have more deals. I would check with the ladies at the beauty counter.

      • Savn2gether

        Walgreens will write a raincheck, but without the RR. For example, if it is a $5 item with a $4 rr, they will write the raincheck for $1. When you come in to get the product, you get it at the lower price, but no RR will print. It’s definitely worth it on a free item. However, they usually limit the quantity on the raincheck to 1 per item. 

    • Tljcnj

      I tried to print the kids hand soap coupon from softsoap and they were no longer available.  I did however find another coupon on a sifferent list for 8+oz liquid handsoap (.70 off) that should wok also and they were still printing.

    • I had read that there may be a problem with getting the $5 RR at Walgreens if using the $5 off coupon for the Quattro Razor on sale for $8.99.  Has anyone tried to use this coupon and what was the outcome?  Thanks!
