    • Julie

      I see where you are supposed to use two of the same coupon above [i.e. (2)-$1 off Dentex Flossers]. However, I have never been able to use two of the same coupon anywhere. My stores will not accept them. Is this an accepted practice at certain stores? Or is there a trick to get them to “go through” the system?

    • My local Walgreens will not over-ride and or adjust the BEEP on ecotrin…I have two of the $2 off out of the paper so will have to use those, but that would have been a SWEEEEET deal if it worked.

    • crystal

      Same thing with my walgreens, they told me that I had to come back and use the coupon when the product was more expensive, which I then laughed at and walked out buying nothing. Wags has been really awful to me in my town, so I stopped shopping there (with the exception of getting ink refilled) I go to cvs now. (they are nicer to me and I have gotten more free stuff there)

    • Julie

      I tossed that Bayer/Contour meter coupon not thinking I would ever need it. *$&#@&*!

    • Rachel

      I read on another forum that you have to have a Rx to purchase the Bayer Breeze 2 or Contour meter. I’m in GA. Is this true?

      Thanks for everything you do!

      • Jenny

        Rachel,

        You don’t need a prescription to buy a meter. They are near the pharmacy but not behind the counter. Any person can buy it and I would recommend that every home have one as part of your home safety kit!

    • Heather

      Is Walgreen’s like CVS where you can shop Saturday night to begin getting the deals?

    • Heather

      Also, in the 2nd scenario you outlined, wouldn’t you need to add in some fillers to balance out the number of items versus the number of coupons? Especially if (like me) you have multiple RR’s that need to be used? Thanks for the help!

    • lynn

      the link on the keebler cookies isnt working when i clinck on it .. it says sorry we have encountered a erro please try back later?

    • lynn

      on the olive coupon it says the link you followed is invalid i just am having bad luck printing toda dont know what iam doing wrong

    • M Rose

      My Walgreens(upstate SC) told me that now the deals ALL stop at 12:00am and virtually NOTHING is on sale between 12 and 6:00. Personally I find that hard to believe, but you never know. I didn’t try it because I didn’t want to irritate them by having to do a return. I usually shop there in the middle of the night because it’s less crowded.

    • Shannon N.

      lynn,

      add your email address after the web address, it will work then as a bricks link

    • Debbie

      Still cannot figure out how to print the olive coupon. DUH!

    • nancy

      I could not get the link up either.

    • lynn

      shannon thank you i got it if i had only read the full instructions the first time i wouldnt feel so dumb for asking what was already answered thank you much

    • lynn

      kebbler still isnt working any thoughts on that?

    • lynn

      one more quest i have 2 1.00 register rewards can i use them both to buy one product?

      • Jenny

        Lynn,

        To use them both you would need to have a second product. If you are using any other coupons then you would need to have one product for each manufacturer or RR you are using.

    • Kristie

      Those having issues with olive coupon.. try this link instead.. lower right corner will link you to coupon.

      http://www.lindsayolives.com/our-products/spanish-manzanilla/pimiento-stuffed-spanish-manzanilla.html

    • Debbie

      Kristi

      Worked! I will work on computer classes as soon as I master couponing! LOL Thanks!

    • lynn

      ok thats what you mean by buying a filler item i think i got it now thank you

    • Tracie

      Can I get change back from the Register Rewards?

      • Jenny

        Tracie,

        They will not give you cash back. They are really just coupons so if you have an amount that they owe you, they will require you to purchase something else.

    • Joanne

      I’ve never shopped at Wallgreens. Do all stores have the register rewards? I heard from a friend that they are new and some stores are not participating in the program yet. Anyone know the scoop?

    • Beth

      Joanne,

      I’ve been using the RR program at Walgreens since last summer, so it isn’t new. I’m pretty sure this is a company program. If you’re unsure, you can always ask the store manager before you purchase anything.

    • Adele

      So what is your recommendation on the Ecotrin printable? Will they adjust it down, or reject it? Thanks!

    • Beth

      Adele,
      I’ve had this happen at other stores with other coupons. Some cashiers will just push it through (override the system), others will hesitate and tell me they can’t accept it (don’t want to, don’t know how, whatever). I just politely ask them if they will downgrade the coupon to the price of the item. That usually works for me.

    • poe

      So you are saying a sript is not required for the Bayer meter purchase in the state of GA?

    • angela

      i don’t usually buy tide, but am doing a 2 month experiment. can someone tell me if this is a good price? and if not, what IS a good price so that i can watch for it?

      • Jenny

        Angela,

        This is an fairly good price. Look for the small jugs to be around $4 on a good sale with a coupon, this one is 2 times the small jug for $9.99 if you had the $1 off coupon.

    • WL

      The coupon I have for the glucose monitoring sytem says “Get a FREE Contour or Breeze 2 Meter from Bayer when you present your prescription for a blood glucose monitoring system….offer valid 3/1/09 – 8/31/09”. Is this a different one than the one you have listed to use?

    • WL

      Also, has anyone tried the Slim Shots appetite control? Does it work?

    • Mina

      WL, that’s the one. I script isn’t required in order to purchase a meter in most states, but a store MAY require one be presented before accepting the coupon if they interpret the instructions that way.

      If anyone is not familiar with Walgreens and their RR program, you will find it helpful to read Jenny’s “getting started guide” that she always links at the top of the page. It will answer many of your questions.

    • Kareen

      Is there any other place to find the meter coupons other than ss 3/22? i swear i saw them somewhere?

    • Paul

      Heather —

      I live in GA and when I have RRs about to expire, Publix takes them. They’re manufacturer coupons. They just scan right off the total. You don’t get change back or anything like that, but it’s better than losing them.

    • Tracie

      Paul-

      Does Publix take the RR for any item or does it have to be the item that you received the RR for?

      Thanks.

      • Jenny

        The register reward is a blank coupon to just come off the balance so you do not have to buy any particular item at Publix to use it. It is a manufacturer coupon and most stores do know to file for reimbursement. (Some still treat it as a competitor coupon and trash it).

    • Kim

      I can’t find the Kerasal 2$ off q in the 5/15 SS. I am in Acworth GA and I get the AJC newspaper. Anyone else having trouble finding it or can someone guide me to where it is please! Thanks! Kim

    • lynn

      essentailsforlivingwell.com has 2.00 ecotrin coupons you must register first it is glasco cline smith website they have a number of coupons but thought the ecotrin was relevent to sundays sale if you have already got your print limit from smart source you can go here for 2 more coupons these coupons are for 2.00 even .. so happy couponing all

    • lynn

      there is a 1.00 coupon at coupon.com for the kersal if that helps

    • lynn

      my publix doesnt take rr at all i dont know why when they are manf. coupons the ony place i can use them at is walgreens

    • betsy

      There is also a Lindsay Olives Product $1/2 coupon in the June Southern Living Magazine (pg.9).

      Thanks again Jenny for ALL your hard work:) Looking forward to getting some deals at Walgreens this week. Since they stopped their rebate program I just haven’t been thrilled with their weekly sales:(

    • Coupon Confused

      Jenny-

      I attended one of your seminars here in Atlanta and I learned alot from you. I wrote in my notes that Publix takes the Register Rewards from Walgreesn. Is this true and if so are there any restrictions -other than no cash back? Thanks for all of your hard work, you have helped my save a ton of money and I appreciate it.

    • nancy

      I have a 3rr left form last week. I would like to but newspaper on sunday with it. can i???

      • Jenny

        You can use it for newspapers just make sure your total is equal to or more than the RR.

    • lynn

      i would love to be able to use rr at my publix is there something i could say to them or do they have the right to refuse maf. coupons how would i aproach this issue?

    • Shannon N.

      in Tallahassee all my Publix(es?) will ring the RR as a competitor.. no questions asked..

    • Jaclyn

      How do you get the bar code to print on the Tresemme coupon? The coupon is huge! I tried printing it landscape and it still gets cut off.

      Thanks!

    • In Georgia you don’t need a script to buy the Breeze meter, I have bought about 12 this month at very various Walgreens and never have been asked for one. They are sometimes located behind the pharmacy counter in addition to being on an aisle….

    • PS I wish I would of known that they were going to generate 10RR this week, I had been trying to use them before the month was up.. Argghh.

    • nancy

      I am tring to enter my walgreen receits on the website. But it only as a link to check the status of rebate am I missing something. Thank you for the help. I can’t believe I almost forgot to sumit them

    • Beth

      I can’t find the Kerasol coupons either in my paper, I’ve checked over and over. Am I just missing it? i’m in pa

    • nancy

      I called the cs of walgreens and asked how do i get the walgreens card. They said I had to sign up for Precription card that is used like a gift card. It would cost me to be apart of this walgreens card. I asked about the rebate on items bought. CS confirmed that I would have to get a card. Last month when I started shopping there I asked the cashier about the card. She said there was no card. So I assumed I had to enter it on line to get the card. Which you can according to CS but it would cost me. The cs had a bad conection. thought I would call back tomorrow. Jenny do I have to pay for a walgreens card. On the website I can only get CHECK STATUS OF REBATE CHECK to come up.

    • joquena

      does anyone know where i can find a printable coupon for bumblebee tuna? it’s in the sales flyer for this week at walgreens. if i find a merchant coupon i will be able to combine it with the store coupon right? thanks everyone! i’m new to couponing but i’m hooked already

    • Jenn

      My Crystal Light Q if for 1 FREE Skin Essentials WYB [b]ONE[/b] Drink Mix product. (not 2, like you posted above) I hope others have the same Q I do!

      Thank you for the matchups, this is great! :)
      *Crossing fingers for lots of meters in stock, I have lots of Q’s!

    • Susannah

      Jenny, your website is AWESOME!!! I have had so much fun saving money. THank you for all the work you are doing.

      The link for Listerine on the Walgreens page for this week is incorrect. It prints Bayer Quick Release tablets instead. If you can lead me to the correct link, that would be great.

      Thank you again!

    • Don’t know if I told you guys about this…it was yesterday and may al be gone. THe Angel Soft 4 pack tissue is 50cents. 50cents IP from a couple of weeks ago may still be out there. FREE TISSUE…can’t have too much of that. The sticker had $1.09, but is on clearance price at 50cents

    • Alisa

      I think I saw this somewhere before, but Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil 70ft is on clearance for 90 cents. The self tag had a clearance price of 2.69, but I had the cashier scan it first. I bought four rolls and used 3 – 1.00 coupons. You can’t beat four rolls for 60 cents.

    • I just had a great shopping experience at Walgreen in Center Point. I needed a new hair dryer. I spotted the Revlon 1875 Ionic dryer on sale for $19 with a $10 RR. So off I go to Walgreens. The dryer rang up for $14.03! and I still got the $10 RR. Sweeeeeeeeet!

    • nancy

      Jenny I called CS of walgreens they said that the gift card or single check rebate is not avalible. They do not know when they will reissue this again. So only RR are ok to roll over. What a bummer?

    • Mina

      Nancy, Wags discontinued their Easy Saver Rebate program a month ago. That was the one where they would add an extra 10% if you requested to have the rebate amount put on a gift card. RiteAid is the store that does Single Check Rebate. Their program is still running.

    • Elizabeth

      Just had an awesome trip to Wags!! Got the pink Revlon hairdryer on sale for $12.99 and got the $10 RR. Also the Johnsons baby powder has a $1 RR. Got the 4 oz ($1.99) used a $1 Q and got the $1 RR made it FREE!!
      My total before Qs and sales was $178. Spent $17 OOP and got back $32 RR. Think I am going to make this trip again!!!

    • meg

      Not sure if I have the right cpn for the Bayer breeze, it’s the $20 off purchase of 100ct size of Breeze2 10-test discs or Contour test strips. Is this a valid cpn for the meter? Thanks for any input…

      • Jenny

        Meg,

        Thats the coupon that is right next to the right coupon in the inserts. There are two, one for the strips and one for the meters.

    • poe

      Well Wags in Thomasville, GA will not take the Ecotrin $2.25 Q. They say that they can not adjust it down. Messed up my whole plan for this week.

    • meg

      Thanks bunches Jenny! I got the cpn from a cpn train; don’t have the meter one then :( I reallly do appreciate you!!!

    • melody

      My Walgreen’s would not price adjust on the $2.25 Ecotrin coupon. I did have 4 $2 Ecotrin coupons, so I did 4 separate transactions and got $8 in RR!!! I had to pay .14 tax on each box. What a great deal!! My Dad is elderly and takes the aspirin every day, so a blessing for him as well!!

    • Lisa

      OK…I see they have chinet plates 2/$3. The printable is for Chinet Classic white…Is there a difference or no??…Im not familiar with these plates..

    • OMG….the ECOTRIN has a coupon in the box for $2 off!!!! Open the box don’t throw it away. Also the coupon policy at WALGREENS says that they can adjust and no cash back…so Melody fight it if you have time. I talked to Emily at the Rock Hill, SC store on Celanese Rd…if that helps.

    • poe

      Does anybody have a link to Wags coupon policy?

    • lynn

      yippy one of mine had a 2.00 off coupon igot 3packages of the chinet paper plates today with the coupons at wags it worked great my wags didnt adjust the price of the 2.25 coupons so it was a great trip to wags with no hasles and they were verry nice about me doing a couple of transaction

    • M Rose

      Just got back from Wags and did one purchase of a meter-OOP.80 and got the RR for $10.00. Tried it again and no RR spit out:(!!!! Anybody know why this happened???? Should I have bought a carmel?????

    • HMMM? different transaction and didn’t work…any details maybe being left out?

    • dawn

      Ecotrin coupon inside box says for 60 ct or larger. RR is for the 45 ct box, right?

    • lynn

      smart source has reloaded the ecotrin and many of the karft gl

    • lynn

      my coupon says on any ecotrin product hmm wonder why the diffrence?

    • Tracie

      M Rose-

      We you using the RR that you just received from the previous meter puchased to buy you 2nd meter?

    • Tracie

      M Rose-

      Did you use the RR that you just received from the previous meter purchase to buy your 2nd meter?

    • Jen

      The Walgreens in Alpharetta has all Cutter bug repellant on clearance. Use the $2/any Cutter product (sorry, don’t know which week this came out). I got a ton of the mosquito wipes for $1.49/box (usually $5.99). Hope this helps some folks out before the kids head out to camp!

    • Fawn

      https://offers.bayerdiabetes.com/CouponReg.aspx?product=contour

      Here is a site to get a free coupon for the bayer glucose meter. It says you have to have a prescription to use it.. but I know you don’t need a prescription to buy one here in Missouri. I haven’t tried it yet..

    • lynn

      WORST EXPERIANCE EVER AT WALGREENS TODAY went to the same walgreens i always go as it is closse to the housewell anyways had the new printable coupons for the ecotrin had two 2.00 coupons and 2 2.25 coupons also had the coupon for the cutter repelent was told by the cashier and then by the manager that i was trying to commit coupon fraud that yes they used the word freud several time .. that i could not use coupons to get items for free they said that was illeagal i also was going to get other item such as the dawn dish liquid and paper plates ….. they said i could use those because those items would not be free but that it was not allowed to get any item for free i tried to explain that it was a manufacture coupon and they were getting reimbersed for it and they insited that was fraud to the coupany they they neverintened their items to be give away for free and that the manufacture had no way of knowing that they would be on sale at their store they told me i should know better than trying to comit fraud they did however agree that they were ligit coupons .. but insisted i was using them inaproperatly they said coupons like that are ment to be used on non sale items…. needless to say i was verry embarassed cause people in the store were watching and listening to what he was saying …….. i have never hadthis type of proble before he refused to scan the coupons he said just because the coupon would scan would not make it any less illeagal……..he did hand the coupons back to me and said they could be used when the item were regular price. (wonder what makes him think i would go back in his store again after the way he talked to me)…………i did phone corperate office and they said they would have someone get back to me within 2 daysbut thinking maybe i just should stick to cvs from here on out i have never been so embarassed or humiliated in my life or talked to so rudely ……. i take pride in using the coupons i get in the right manner and if i have a question i find the answere to it before using the coupon …. for him to refuse to scan them and acuse me of ffraud based on his store having a sale i just dont know what to thin… well thanks for letting me vent

    • Lela

      Lynn-
      I’m sorry you had this bad experience. I used the $2 internet printable coupon for Ecotrin today at my local Wags, no problem. I also used the FREE Mars candy bar coupon I got in today’s mail, which made me laugh when I read they told you a coupon can’t be used to get something for free! It is frustrating when you know you are right and they are telling you something that is not right — especially when they throw around a word like “fraud”– but hopefully you’ll get somewhere with corporate. I know its hard, but don’t let them ruin your day :)

    • Susan

      I can’t find the cutter coupon in my ss 5/31. did everyone else find it? Did a page fall out? thanks if you can help me.

    • Do you think that some of the stores are starting to get concerned over all the “couponing” and free deals that are going on? I have been doing this since last October and can’t believe what I get for free or almost free. I know it benefits the manufacturers and stores because I have completely changed where I shop and they are benefiting from offering these things. My husband keeps saying this can’t last for long. What do you guys think with all your experience and history? BTW, I have not had one problem with coupons in all that time.

    • Oh Lynn, perservere. You did right by calling corporate. Its not fair/nor company policy what they said to you today, and you are helping them learn so that they don’t ever do this again to other coupon people.
      Let us know what corporate says.
      WE can and do get stuff for free all the time using coupons. The manufacturer’s want us to try their products and also talk up Walgreens on all these coupon boards!

    • Mina

      Lynn, that IS a terrible experience. I’m glad you called corporate. Even some managers have a huge misconception of how coupons work. I do hope that corp. helps your store to understand better.

      Dawn, right. Even if they don’t “beep” those q’s for the 60 count or larger aren’t valid to use on the 45 count package that produces the RR’s. Save them in case there is a good time to use them later.

    • M Rose

      No I was not using the RR from the first transaction. Did exactly as I did the first time but no RR. Went in today and bought the meter and a filler item just in case the RR counted as “using” a Q and since I used a Q to buy it….who knows….just thought I would try it. Worked-spit the thing right out. THEN-the clerk grabs it and puts it in his little coupon bag. I said, “oh, that’s my RR.”. To which he replies, “You can’t have it, because it would mean you got something for free and we don’t do that”. I put on my best smile and said, “Can you please ask about that?” He came right back and gave me my RR but frowned like I was a criminal!!!! ARG!!!! I love Wags deals but they can really frustrate me. I am going to try to return the meter that did not spit the RR out and explain why-maybe they can overide it and give me one. Who can ever tell…..

    • M Rose

      Went in tonight-no problem!!! Go figure!!! I decided not to return the other meter-I would rather not make anybody think I was scamming them and lose the great relationship I have with some of the clerks. Win some/lose some-I still did great with having several of those Qs left!!!

    • Susan the CUTTER was regional. I have Q’s from Charlotte, Rock Hill & Greenville, SC … only in Charlotte & Greenville, but NOT Rock Hill.

      Lynn
      FRAUD issue-girl I hope and pray you plan to take that issue to the next level…CORPORATE.

    • lynn

      thanks forall the support will let you all know what corperate says…. on the cutter repelant i have that coupon here in florida i cant use would make the product free go figure i did remain nice and calm while tlking to him ….. at first when he started to say that i couldnt use the coupon i thought he was saying because some of them would print rr i told him he could keep the rr and thats when he start ed to explain coupon fraud to me my husband was there and asked him are you accusing my wife of coupon fraud and he answered eith yes i am if she is trying to cash in those coupons to get free products well thanks all will keep you posted

    • Sally

      M Rose you don’t happen to be shopping in Gaffney do you? I always get hasseled by Greg the cashier there. He always acts like I’m trying to steal using coupons and register rewards.

    • Melissa

      Lynn that is awful – I had the same exact thing happen to me at a Walmart! I mean they get the money plus a handling fee! Why do these stores NOT want to make money! Crazy I tell you!!!

    • Melissa

      I know it says you pay nothing with the meter but I had to pay the .70 tax. Is this correct?
      Thanks!

      • Jenny

        Some states do require that you pay tax even though coupons were used. Governments like to get there money no matter what. It also depends on when the cashier hits the subtotal tax button.

    • Sara

      I just got back from my local Walgreens (Boynton Beach, FL) and used my coupon for the free Bayer meter(had to have pharmacist call my Dr. for Rx) and it didn’t print my RR. The pharm said because I didn’t BUY it. i asked the mgr and he said I was welcome to BUY one, but wouldn’t get my RR for the free meter. I went ahead and bought one, but then the mgr scrawled across the recpt NO RETURN/$10REWARD. I asked him if it’s policy to write that on all receipts and he said he “had a feeling” I would return the purchased meter. I AM SO ANGRY! How DARE he make me feel like a CRIMINAL for spending MONEY in his store! I explained that I get RRs off free w/Q stuff all the time… he said that’s not corp policy.
      I guess I’ll be craigslisting the extra meter, I certainly don’t need two. What do y’all think I should do? Does this merit a call to corp?

      • Jenny

        I would! If anything now you probably can’t even do the mail in rebate if you wanted to go that route to get your money back.

    • Melissa

      Sara that is crazy! Why did he put no returns/10Reward when you did not get the 10 RR?!?! I would call corp. too!

      Thanks Jenny for answering my question about paying the tax; this has never happened before so I did not know if this happens to be correct. Should I have them scan the coupon before hitting total?

      • Jenny

        You can try to have them scan coupons before hitting total… that’s a hard one though.

    • lynn

      jenny do have or know wherei can get a copy of walgreens coupon policy i am not wanting to go back with out would like to use the asprin coupons as do take asprin daily and the cutter coupon also or do you think i should just wait till these things go on sale some where eles?

    • Joe

      Lynn, sorry to hear about your experience that manager was very mistaken and a phone call to the store manager should do the trick to get the situation handled. Calling corporate on every little issue that happens in a store is not appropriate when the issue can be handled by the store manager directly. Call the store manager and talk to him/her as this is the same person that will handle the complaint when it comes down from corporate. No one in any corporate office handles any complaints, they all fall on the store manager.

      Just an FYI for everyone though, the 2.25/1 Ecotrin coupon will not go through as it is worth more than the item and our system will not allow that. I had the same problem at my store the other day when a customer tried to do the ecotrin deal with the 2.25 cpn. Since she didn’t have the $2/1 cpn I had my cashier modify the price of the ecotrin to 2.25 so the coupon would work. She still got the product for free and the RR, so she left happy and that is all that matters.It is true that we can modify the value of the cpn to $2 but many times asking a cashier or manager to do this (especially for something that will be free) might seem fishy to the uneducated.

    • lynn

      thanks joe …. i agree with you but this was the store manager who said this to me

    • lynn

      joe i would not call corperate in normal situation but as he was the store manager i personal did not know where eles to go i wish this could be resolved easier but he was enraged and truely believed i was comitting fraud

    • Juju

      I had problems with the $2.25 Ecotrin coupon. Cashier had to call store manager.

      Problem was I had more coupons than items purchased and I was unable to use 2 of my previous RR. So I added 3/$2 M&M’s. Since it was 3 more items, I asked the store manager to try the $2.25 Ecotrin coupon, and it worked.

      Stuff I got on this trip:
      20″ Box Fan $17.99 (comes with $5 rebate)
      4 Boxes Kelloggs Cereal $7.00 (after 2 $1.50 off Coupons)
      Ecotrin (made $0.25 after $2.25 coupon)
      Mint Chocolate $0.99
      3 x M&M chocolate $2.00

      Used 5 RR coupons from last week
      and $5 off $20 Walgreens Coupon (received in mail)

      Total $14.23
      Less rebate for fan and $2RR = about $7.23

      Couldn’t find the Bayer Glucose Meter – was sold out. I also couldn’t find the Kerasal in the ad, is it in this week’s ad?

      I’m satisfied with this trip but if the above 2 items were available, I could have made more RR but on 2 trips since I have 1 more $5 off $20 left that expires 6/6.

    • Juju

      Just want to add that not all Walgreens will accept MFR coupons with RR. I went to a different location 2 weeks ago and I didn’t get RR back with MFR coupons. Be sure to ask the cashier first.

    • Joe

      Wow that really is harsh. I can’t believe that a store manager would do that, that is behavior i expect out of assistant managers left and right but not a store manager.

    • Gail

      Jenny,

      Items that are in your weekly sales circular are not in mine. I don’t know where you live. I live in Colorado. I have been trying to figure out if some of the items you have listed might be listed in my circular at a diffrent time during the month. I thought you might live on the eastern side of the states. Do you have any insight on how items are put in the circluars? It probably has to do with the demographics of the area. Any info. would be helpful. Thanks

    • Margie

      Walgreens N. Decatur Rd in Atlanta is ringing up the On Sale blowdryers with $10 RR at $12.99 instead of $19.99 – I even told the cashier but he didn’t change it – so run dont walk to walgreens and get a blow dryer (revlon) for $2.99 plus tax – and it’s pink so they donate a portion of the sale to Breast Cancer research.

    • Tammy C.

      Whew…let me tell you about Terrible Tuesday at Walgreens ’round here! The cashier actually told me I was not ALLOWED to purchase more than one Ecotrin or more than one of any other RR deal!!! I kindly told her that was the first time I had encountered that. I should have reminded her of the multiple transactions she did for me the week before. GRRRR… I emailed corporate about it when I got home. I went across town to another Wag’s and the when I presented my Black and White fast draft print Ecotrin was told “photocopied coupons” were not allowed. Can you believe it? I told her it was not a photocopy, that I only use black and white ink. She replied that she does, too, but the print should be darker…not if you’re almost out of ink, honey. I pulled out my second print and pointed out the different numbers which PROVED that it was not a photocopy. No apology. Wow…I just started with Wag’s a few weeks ago and am ready to take my business elsewhere.

    • Hi everyone,

      Can anyone read my situation below and please tell me why the Walgreens computer wouldn’t allow me to use all my coupons?

      I purchased the following:

      1 single Dove bar soap (used $1.00, this worked)

      2 packages of Chinet plates 2/$3 (used 2/$1 coupons, these both worked)

      3 containers of Crystal Light Drink Mix (used 1/$1 coupon and 1/$2 coupon)

      1 package of candy (filler item to have enough items/coupons)

      I also had $1.50RR and a $3RR (the cashier scanned my $1.50RR but when he went to scan in the $3RR it wouldn’t scan).

      That’s 7 items and 7 coupons???

      Am I missing something? The cashier had the manager come over, he was very nice, but couldn’t get the other RR to scan and said that it might be…”something about the before tax” or something (I didn’t understand). I am so frustrated…I then had to pay OOP for the candy because my daughter had already opened it before we left the store (my new rule is that nothing gets opened until we have checked out and out the door).

      SO…can anyone guess what happened wrong with this transaction?

      Thanks so much!
      Ginger

    • Tracie

      Walgreens Debable: Went to Walgreens today to buy 3 items and I had 1 coupon and 2 RR. Total items purchased 3, total coupons 3, seems pretty simple, right? I get to the checkout and the cashier told me that I could only use 1 RR. I asked her why and she said “the RR exceeds the price of the item. I was buying a fan for $25 and I had 2 RR $10. The math works out fine $20 off of $25. She called in reinforcements and the Asst Mgr. told me to use a smaller RR and that they should work. I didn’t have any smaller RR and asked him why the register wasn’t taking $20 off of $25. He said you have more items than coupons. I had 3 items and 3 coupons, so I was still baffled. I said forget it I don’t want anything. He then called his Mgr. over who told me you can’t use 2 RR in the same transaction, that the max is 1. So I was given 3 reasons why I couldn’t use the RR, all of which were untrue. I was not purchasing the same item that I received the RR for so I have no idea what the issue was. I walked out without anything except for grief. I really try to learn the store policies, is it too much to ask for the employees to do the same?

    • Walgreens issues…I had several in the past and have now made “FRIENDS” with one of the local managers. She is well aware that I blog and that I have contacted CORPORATE about my past issues. Anytime I even THINK there will be an issue I ask for her and or ask them to hold the product while I go to my car and call CORPORATE to confirm the policy information they are quoting to me. Instead of just taking it…I TAKE it to CORPORATE. Keep your head up and keep COUPONING, but don’t accept bad service, don’t accept managers being RUDE and the “I had a feeling” comment in #94, girl I would have simply left him with the product asked for coupon went to my car SCREAMED and then calmly called corporate. You pay his salary whether it be with FREE stuff or PAID stuff.

    • lynn

      #110 tracie i agree with you as couponers we have to know every diffrent store policy and handle our self better than the average shoppers is it realy to much to aske that each store at least know their own policy?me i am still waiting to find out any thing from corperate…. starting to think they dont want my coupons or moneyi have heard from locals around here that wagreens is saying if you pay for a product using a coupon you can not get the register rewards because the the company is paying twice ……as explained to me that is also coupon fraud…….. well if i ever hear back from corperate on this issue i will be sure to let you know what they say and find out once and for all if walgreens is a coupon friendly store

    • Wendy

      Jenny, thanks for your Walgreens Tip and Tricks post a few weeks ago. I had to refer back to it for the Catalina company’s number. I had never had a problem rolling my RRs until Saturday. I used a $5 RR to buy the Posture D Calcium supplement and my $9 RR did not print. The cashier and manager said it was because I used an RR to pay. I knew that wasn’t right. Today the Catalina company said it was because that printer was down at the time. AHHHHH!!! Makes me really irritated that those employees got away with not fixing the issue when I’m sure they knew there was problem with the printer. I’m glad I’ll be getting the coupon in the mail.

    • Jennifer

      Does anyone know if there is a limit on the $10 RR for the Revlon Hair Dryers? Mine rang up for $12.99 and then printed the $10 RR…I was thinking about doing it again if it will print $10 more RR. Thanks a bunch!!!

      • Jenny

        Jennifer,

        As long as you don’t pay for the next hair dryer with the $10 RR you have, it will print out another one.

    • Lauren

      I just had an associate tell me that with a raincheck on the Bayer Glucometer deal I would not be able to get the register rewards after this week. Is this true? I asked her to give me a raincheck anyway so I have one if she is wrong. I guess I could call corporate for the answer. I knew I would have to get a raincheck at my store because they never have the good deals on the shelf. (They purposely try to fend off the couponers this way.)

    • lynn

      on the bayer meters if the shelfs are empty try the pharmacy here in florida the pharmacy keeps them in the back and only bring them out when requested

    • lynn

      w would have to lnow what was the tota amount you owed and what was the total coupon value?

    • Tracie

      Anyone ever have an issue with getting RR on a Raincheck? I had a Mgr. tell me that he could not force the RR when the item came back in stock, is this accurate???

    • Deborah

      The Cutter Advanced Insect Repellent 1 oz. is 2 for $6 at my local stores. It’s listed as 2 for $4 online, though. Has anyone else run across this?

    • Tracie

      Lauren- #115-

      Looks like we both have the same issues with Walgreens. I have emailed and called Customer Service and will let you know what I kind out. Will you let me know if you find out anything?

      Thanks!

    • Timea

      #115 & #119… I was told the same… No RR’s with rainchecks, because it is an actual catalina manufacturer coupon they are just connected for the deals during that week… and not like the ecb’s from cvs

    • Judith

      Tracie #110
      I have read on another site that a coupon that requires you to buy two items “attaches” itself to both of the items and counts as two coupons in the coupon count. I think this might be a fairly recent thing at Walgreens, and could explain why your second RR wasn’t accepted. This has happened to others and it seems to be the way the programming works now.

    • lynn

      gotta love cvs

    • Tracie

      Judith #123

      Thanks, that was the issue. It was driving me crazy and I appreciate you figuring it out for me!

    • Nikki

      I found a 30 pack of Dentek floss picks at WalMart for $0.97.
      With the coupon, it’s free!!!

    • Alisa

      Ginger #109

      For the Crystal Light Drink Mix, if you used the $2 off 2 coupon, the system attached two Crystal Lights to the one coupon. (see Judith #123 response to Tracie) In this instance, you would need one additional filler item.

    • teresa

      On my walgreens paper it says $10 RR for the beyers meter at $10 (LIMIT 1)

      Has anyone have any trouble buying more than one to be able to use the coupon? Did your paper also say LIMIT 1?

      Thanks!

    • Virginia

      Teresa all of the sale ads say ‘limit 1’ for the meters. If you want to get the $10 RR more than 1 time, you have to do more than 1 transaction. Some stores will refuse to let you get more than 1 since there is a limit stated in the ad. I encountered this yesterday.

    • ET

      I did my first Walgreens transaction this week since learning of this website. I must admit I was hesitant since I have read so much about their horrible customer service. We were visiting my Grandmother and my Aunt in the Nashville area and we stopped at the Publix and Walgreens, both on Long Hollow Pike. Both stops were such pleasant experiences! I purchased just the Bayer meter at Walgreens (They still had 2 or 3 left!) and didn’t have a chance to roll my register rewards, as both my mom and my daughter were with me and I needed more time to look for the other items I wanted. But the cashier was very nice and helpful and seemed as excited as I was about my receiving the $10 RR for spending nothing!

      I didn’t buy a lot at the Publix, since we were traveling, just the items that were going to be free or less than a dollar with my coupons. While looking at one of the end caps at the Purina Beneful dog food that was BOGO, a very pleasant lady helped us who was with Purina. She saw that we had our coupons in our hands and ended up giving my mom and me lots of coupons for Purina and Nestle products! What a wonderful shopping trip! My mom and I both laughed at how addicted to couponing and saving money we have become in that we stop while traveling! We did look for the Family is its Own Rewards booklet but they didn’t have it at this location unless it was somewhere inside the store.

    • Stacy

      I also got the Breeze 2 metera nd used the coupon. It worked at our Wags and the pharmacy tech was impressed that I only had to pay sales tax. He also told me there was a $10 mail in rebate included so I made $20!

      The hair dryer that’s on sale for $19.99 with a $10 RR was actually on sale for $12.99 with a $10 RR so I got it for $2.00! This was only my 2nd couponing trip to Wags but I’m hooked.

    • Julie Ann

      Lordy, after reading all this I’m not sure I ever want to go to Walgreens again…

      but I do have 2 questions>
      1- my Walgreens sign on the rack said you have to purchase 2 Kerasal products to get the $5 RR’s. Is that a misprint?
      2- I registered for the Kerasal sock deal. Are you supposed to buy them and they reimburse you or do they send them to you for free? That whole site was confusing to me b/c it didn’t say much.

      Boo Hoo, my Walgreens had the Cutter on sale for $5 or on clearance for $3.98 :( Wonder why it was so much higher here?

      Thanks everyone!

    • Leah

      OMG, I went to a Walgreens today in Kingsland, GA and they had some of all the great sale items (Angel Soft $.40, Charmin $2.39, etc…) and when I got up to the register some of the items even rang up for less (which actually messed me up, lol) so I had to grab some candy at the register to make up the difference. I had a ton of items and a ton of coupons and register rewards, so I was prepared for an angry cashier, maybe even a manager with an attitude but guess what. Everyone was nice and helpful. My cashier even told me how much she appreciated me knowing the rules and how easy I made it for her by grabbing the candy to bring my total up to the right amount. I almost fell over. It was like Christmas…. :)

    • Just made $32 on ECOTRIN…well spent .14cents a piece…still good deal!!! Spending the money on groceries this week.

    • Susan

      ok…I think I am done with Walgreens. I just went in there to get the glucose meter. I knew when I saw the cashier I should have just left. She ALWAYS gives me a hard time about every coupon. I never argue with her though I usually just say ok and take my coupon back and still buy the item.

      So I put the glucose meter up there and gave her my coupon. She then said I can do one or the other. I told her I was not going to do the mail in rebate I just wanted to use the coupon. She said if that is the case then she needs to call the manager because she has to charge me full price &79.99) if I want to use the coupon. I was questioning her when the manager came up. After awhile of explaining it she finally took the coupon for $10 and said (pretty nasty) I would have to pay the tax. (I already had the $1.00 in my hand went I approached the cash register). So when my RR printed out she took it and ripped it up! She said I could not have it because I am not doing the mail in rebate. I said but that is rr not mail in. She said no that is the mail in it is done through the register now.

      So I got in my car and called corporate. After talking with them for over 10 min basically they said I am not suppose to get the rr if I use a coupon. I said that has never been the case in the past. So no matter what if I use a man. coupon on something I do not get and RR. He said that is correct. Does that make sense to anyone?????

    • Emily

      Anyone have details on what kind/format of the Cutter bug repelant is $2?

    • Tracie

      Emily #137

      The Cutter Bug Repellent that is $2 is called “Cutter Advanced Insect Repellent”. It;s in a small plastic bottle. It was $2.19 or 2 for $4.00 at my Walgreens here in Atlanta.

    • I couldn’t find the Cutter either, Tracie which aisle was it on? I coudn’t find it in the ad either.

    • Tracie

      The Cutter is aisle with the pesticides (Raid, etc). It’s mixed in with a bunch of Cutter cans. The $2 Cutter is a small (about 4 inches tall) clear plastic bottle with a orange cap. Hope this helps!

    • Tracie

      Susan #136:

      Sorry to hear about your experience. I had a similar one and the cashier told me the same thing, just send in for the rebate, no RR for you. I was wondering if the cashier was going to keep the RR that printed!
      Here’s a question regarding the use of a Manufacturer coupon in conjunction with the RR. If this is not allowed, then why are they advertising it this way? Have you noticed in the Sunday store flyers there is a picture of a pair of scissors and it says above the item “Coupon in this Sunday’s paper”. I’ve seen this in ads for CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens on items that included ECB, SCR and RR. Sounds like Corporate may need to read their own sales flyer.

    • Ann

      Wow…. I can not believe some of the things you all are going through with the Bayer Meter coupons. I went into Walgreens and one cashier ask me to wait, she might have some behind the counter for me to use. She also stated that she taped the $30.00 coupons on the box???? Some people just dont like to see others save. I say try another Walgreens, I have seen some cashiers at Publix act angry because you spend $2.00 on $100.00 worth of groceries. Like I tell them I rather teach you how to shop with coupons, than cheat YOU!!!!

    • Susan -#136

      I can’t believe the cashier ripped up your RR! I also can’t believe corporate backed them up on it. If what they said were true, almost every Walgreens in the country is going against company policy. I hope you find a way to get it resolved.

      Do you have another Walgreens in the area you could go to? I have 4 within 10 minutes of each other and a 5th location only about 20 minutes away. So far, I have found all of them to be helpful and haven’t had a bad experience.

      If you have no other walgreens I would stick with CVS or just go to Wags when that wful cashier isn’t working!

    • Libby

      I bought a meter (.93 cents and I had 10 bucks to use at Publix!), but there is a rebate in the box. Will the company send me the money or not because the receipt will just show .93? I don’t want to do anything I’m not supposed to.
