      With the $5 RR WYB $15 in Aleve at Walgreens this week, you can get 4 of the small bottles for about a nickel each if you use (2) $5/2 q’s. That’s a pretty good stock up price for me!

      • couponmommy23

        what size are the small bottles? i heard the flintstones would be a mm but my wags has them for 10.99 a box instead of the 7.00 that i heard about.

        • Anonymous

          Buy (4) Aleve Gel Caps 40ct or 50ct caplets $3.79 each
          Total = $15.16

          • Lovelyyengkee

            My Walgreens in Sacramento, CA have them for $4.29 each, not $3.79.

            • Brsjrs

              Mine in Richmond, va had them for $3.99. 4 for .96. Not bad!

            • Livvy

              Same here in Texarkana, TX!  Still not a bad price, but sure wish it was 4 cents.  I’m getting greedy, I think…

            • Cindy

              In Tracy, CA there are $3.99. 

    • Tlwoodbury

      Be aware-the $1.50 Blink Tears Lubricating Eye Drops coupon prints at the BOTTOM of the page,  after an advertisement.  If you are like me (I used a 2/3rds scrap of a sheet of paper in my printer and lost the coupon) this bit of info. might help you.

      • Diana C

        that is exactly what I do!  Thanks for the heads up, I hate it when it comes out on the bottom of the page!!

        • ME

          Yes…what a waste of ink.  If I am printing the coupon, the manufacturer should know I am going to purchase the product.  I don’t need a 3/4 page ad in color to print, too.  I am trying to save $$…..ink is expensive.

          • Anonymous

            thats the way i am!! lol… i have to wager “ink… or save .50?”… lol

          • Flipn3d

            this is why I have never put color ink in my printer. I rarely have problems except with anything Adobe. doesn’t work trying to use grayscale and Wags is the only store that has a problem with it.

      • guest

        What a great idea….I try to flip it and print….sometimes I put it in the wrong way and screw myself up…Urggh :)

    • Anonymous

      YAY! Thank you! I love sneak peeks! It gives me something to look forward to….yes I guess that makes me a couponing dork lol :-)

    • Angelareid821

      Thank GOD for Cadbury Eggs!

    • Crownstar

      thankts for the heads up…interesting CVS and WAGs have to thermacare  wraps promotion at the same time…I’m going to CVS..don’t have time for WAGS nonesense with trying to use the RR afterwards.  I see WAGS have a $5 RR and CVS has a $4 ECB…attached.  I’ll still take the $4 ECB; end up having to spend half of the buck in filler items anyhow.

      • DonnaChas

        Amen! Amen!!!   I totally agree with you!  And what bothers me about WAGS is that you can have everything all planned and get there and nothing’s left b/c most of the time there’s no limit on the sale….isn’t it true that all you have to do is work the system in how you use the RR and you can buy more of the same deal?   At least at CVS someone can shop ahead of us and b/c of of the limits, we can usually get a deal!   And if not, we can get a raincheck!!

        I hope this makes sense!!

        • Squirrelhater

          Nothing worse than getting to Wags early…finding someone was earlier than you…then hearing-We don’t do rainchecks/won’t have anymore…I only do RA & CVS drugstores.

          • Kristy

            Yeah my Wags told me they dont give rainchecks on RR items. WHAT? They did before just took off the amount of the RR.. Another reason to shop CVS .

            • ak

              the only reason they dont do rainchaecks on rr is because the rr is a mq not a store coupon like the ecb’s and up rewards, the products company is the one issuing it. i know its still annoying when managers dont order enough product for a sale, but at least theres a valid reason rather than it being ‘just because’

        • Guest

          Yes, you work multiple deals by alternating RRs, so you are never using a specific mfg RR to buy a product made by that same mfg.  By alternating transactions, you could sit there all day doing deals, but I doubt they would let you.  But I totally agree that WAGs takes a lot of mental energy to get the deals to work and you often have to have a back up plan or be able to think quickly on your feet at the store to make it worthwhile.  JMHO

      Jenny, thanks so much for letting us know about these upcoming deals~~~ YOU ARE AWESOME!!!

    • Dlwilson32

      Am new to couponing can someone explain to me about walgreens, cvs, and rite ad……like the register rewards

      • Couponer

        If you click on the walgreens, cvs, etc. tabs above Jenny reviews everything about the stores you need to know.

    • Musiclady0110

      On this week’s Cash Card Deal, the 12 pks of coke says “limit of 4”. Can anyone tell me if you can do the deal 3 different transactions and reach the $30 or does it track the limit like it does on the extra buck deals??

      • Musiclady0110

        **cash card deal @ CVS**

        • pcarmi

          You can do multiple transactions of 4 and it will track it :)

          • kk


            12 packs then for virtually 20$ net

      • Loriwalker525

        yes, I did it today, the clerk told me to do separate transactions and voila….$10 card!

        • kk


    • Alicia

      CVS heads up.  Scan you card to see if you get the $1 off any 2 CVS brand skin care items.  Today I found 120 count, 20% more free, triple size cotton balls on clearance for $.49 a bag.  The bag reads for beauty care so they quality for skin care.  Got 2 bags today for FREE and didn’t even have to pay tax!!!!

    • Reneern

      thanks for the CVS heads up…I don’t use Wags much anymore- takes too much of my time to figure out how to flip the RR to make it worth my while.  I DO occasionally go to Wags though, if there’s some crazy MM :)

      • Denisec

        Check to see if you have a store in your area that takes competitor coupons and they make accept your RR! Bilo does!!!

    • Munchkyn101

      When your purchasing items toward getting a cash card reward and its on clearance which price goes toward the cash card the clearance price or the regular price?

      • Guest

        I believe that clearance items do not count toward the cash card; I could be incorrect, but I would certainly ask in store before counting on that item getting you over the $30 threshold. :)

    • Neair21

      Anyone have any up2u gum single packs they dont want and would like to trade???

    • Wglover5

      On the Triaminic I have 2) $3 off when you buy (2) in my SS 12-4. I can’t see the profit. Can you help clear it up? Thanks

      • dsmith

        Buy 2, paying $10 – (2) $3 cpn = $ 4, get back $5 rr ….$1 profit

      • Anonymous

        Some regions like mine got a $3/1 coupon. Unfortunately I only have one q.

      • Thom

        Like Sheila_P I am in the region that received a $3 off for one Triaminic product. I was able to print a Walgreen’s coupon from their website a week or so ago for a dollar off. I need to read their policy but I hope they will accept a store and manufacturer coupon to allow overage! We will see.

    • Anonymous

      Has walgreens adjusted their registers to prevent overage? cosmetic clerk said the register won’t allow it. Smh!

    • Fallaya

      Looks like another “snooze” week for RA.  Wow…I remember shopping there 2-3 times per week.  Now I only go in there twice per MONTH.  

    • AlDale

      I love couponing, but usually do not get the items like Estroven that I will not use.  I like that it is free though, so what do you do with these items that you cannot donate to a food bank.
      Any suggestions?

      • Cayacoup

        DONATE!!!  Stuff I get for free, make a profit or help me get something else that I don’t use, always go in my donation box just inside my front door. After a week or two (depending on what’s/how much is in it), I take it to a local domestic abuse shelter. Or find someone who needs it at work or my parents. Don’t hoard.

    • Alienmom2002

      you can donate over-the-counter meds to a local medical clinic that serves the unemployes, un-and-underinsured,etc….

    • Nnkellett

      THANK YOU SO MUCH for putting up this preview!!!! This makes my life so much easier you have not idea! 

    • 302799

      Just had a “brain freeze” … the Old Spice is BOGO 50%.  I have BOGOF coupons.  Will I be able to use $2 off coupons as well?  Also, will the FREE ONE be the regular price or the 50% one?

    • Loriwalker525

      I had a super experience at one Walgreens in my town and then a less happy experience at another. One clerk gave me several coupons and registered me for a prize drawing. The other tried to tell me why I couldn’t use my $6 register reward  and a coupon from there January booklet at the same time. I knew I was right but but didn’t have the energy to squabble over a dollar.

      • Savn2gether

        I’ve had a similar experience with the 2 Walgreens in my area. One is awesome, and the managers are super helpful and friendly. At the other one, (which happens to be the closest drive), my register rewards almost never print and they always have to call a manager over to help me out. Since the second one is so far away, I’ve pretty much stopped going, but I highly recommend that store in comparison to the closer one! It’s such a difference between the 2 stores.

    • Anonymous

      Having problems printing the Thermacare coupon. I enter the information requested, but then an error message comes up saying something about the web page does not exist. Anyone else having similar problems?

      • Jbrad_ent

        Same thing just happened to me…
