    • Ladydi1184

      I will not be shopping Walgreens anymore unless absolutely necessary. I tried to buy the Bayer aspirin that was on sale this week. However the cashier decided to tell me that even though I was purchasing 2 items, I could only use 1 coupon. I dont think so. After arguing for a couple minutes, I just gave up. CVS is soooo much better!!

      • Toni

        Maybe the cashier was new. 

        Or maybe the manager is like the one at a store near me.  He told me he is limiting the number of coupons he will accept to four manufacturer coupons per day because I wouldn't believe how many coupons his store gets and what a pain it is to deal with them.  Maybe your store's manager is limiting coupons used per customer to just one.  Ha,  Ha!  I think it is funny.

      • Cori C.

        I had the same problem before when buying two items…they would only take one. Too many bad experiences like that caused me to stop shopping at Walgreens.

    • Guest

      I absolutely agree! I love CVS!! I attempted shopping at Walgreens yesterday for the thermacare deal and was told that because I used coupons when buying the items that I would not get the register rewards. Is this correct? What would be the point of shopping there then?? I ended up just returning the merchandise and do not plan on shopping there again. Thanks for any feedback!

      • Srreynolds

        I've used coupons and received register rewards, so I'm not sure that comment is true, unless it is a regional thing.  Sometimes the register rewards do not print out, and then a manager has to step in and help.  A cashier once told me that if Walgreens is losing money on the transaction, then the register would not accept my coupon.  Huh?  OOOkay.  The problem in that particular case was that I had more coupons than items.  So, my theory is that the cashiers aren't always trained properly on the coupon policy.

      • Guest

        I havent heard that before.  The only thing I have heard is that if you receive a RR for one item and you use that RR for the same item in another transaction, you cant receive the RR again.

        • Moomoo1771

          Yes, I learned that, they don't have a card like CVS that tracks deals but you can't use that rr for the same item in another transaction or you won't get another rr.

      • Toni

        I have had that happen to me several times.  The RR won't print when I use only a manu. coupon clipped from a newspaper insert.  Both the manager and corporate told me that it can happen and tough luck to me. 

        That is why I do not shop there.  These experiences suggest that to Walgreens,  RR are just bait on a hook. They advertise them just to get you to choose them instead of some other store.  Once they have your money,  though,  it's “Ha,  Ha,  to you. ”  They care little whether or not they keep their end of the bargain.  It's disturbing because it wastes the customer's time and money,  and it is the principle of the thing.

        Once I understood that Walgreens is willing to lie and cheat,  I followed the adage:  Fool me once,  shame on you;  fool me twice,  shame on me.

        • Kane

          I was disappointed to find that the Complete Sultion waat WGreens actually 9$ + instead of the 7.99 I thought it was going to be.  I think they jacked up the price in anticipation of the coupon being used to make more money off of us.  I was, however, thrilled to be able to purchase a 17$ item for only 7$ after using 10$ in RR.  I had to make the purchase anyway, so it was a huge blessing.

    • Moomoo1771

      CVS is definitely more friendlier, not only the cashiers but also the computers.  I have a problem with Wags not scanning coupons, even their own rr! It's frustrating.  You can use coupons with rr, like you said what would be the point if you couldn't.  I also had problems with the Thermacare this week, the box had a bonus pad in it so it through off the rr and wouldn't give them, even though the ad said box of 2 or 3 and the bonus pad made 3, strange.  Then while the manager was looking into that she made the cashier change a free item that I had a BOGO coupon for from 6.99 to 5.99 because I also had a $1 off coupon.  I wish publix still took target coupons but they are still my fav then cvs :) Def not wags :(

      • JumpinJax

        Hi , check your local Publix for their competitor list. Mine has small copies in the front of the store that you can grab & lists Target! We do have a SuperTarget nearby though.

    • Herndonquad

      I have so tried to shop at Walgreens in Florence SC.  The people that work at the one on 2nd loops are the rudest bunch of people I have ever come in contact with.  it is not just one worker but numerous employees.  I have gone in before and overheard them talking about fellow couponers.  They are just rude and I am tired of it.

    • Kim

      I dont like walgreens either in brunswick, ga employes so rude and not very helpful even in the photo dept. I only go there if it is an extremely great deal that I cant get any where else that week. When I walk in the door, I feel very uncomfortable. I glad to know that other people have the same feelings that I do.

    • Tammyla

      I went to cvs in pinson, al today and they would not let me use the $2 revlon coupon for the nail polish or the $1 crystal lite coupon for the single pack of crystal lite. :-(

      • Robzwife33

        I went there a couple of times and they seem to be out of the best sale items by Friday.  But the cashier was very friendly and seemed to encourage the whole couponing thing.

        • Robzwife33

          I went to the CVS in Pinson, AL, that is.

    • emma

      Yep ive had problems with their customer service also, after shopping their twice i decided not to anymore. I can get the same products on sale from cvs or rite aid where they r super nice!

    • Moomoo1771

      I was told I couldn't use the $2 off revlon coupon either because the coupon was for color cosmetics and she said the nail polish wasn't a cosmetic, they let me use the crystal light coupon though.  I usually don't have a problem at CVS though.

      • idroxos

        I was able to use the $2 off revlon coupon. It beemed but the cashier pushed it through so I guess it just depends on the cashier.

        • Beryl

          yEA, my cashier wouldn't take it on the nail polish either.  Must save the coupon for next time. (sih.)

    • Ftk

      I agree with the comments below, my shopping experience at Walgreens is always a pain trying to use coupons and constantly using fillers to make deals work.  What a waste of time, go to CVS it is simple and easy.

    • achmomma

      In my mind if I am spending 2 dollars and getting back 2RR after I pay it's not free. I know it is in the long run…but it does not help my case when I am asked how much I spent and I am told…but I thought it was free honey..lol  It is going to take some convincing on my part for a while for my husband.

      • Moomoo1771

        I know what you mean.  My boyfriend is proud of me overall but he says I still have to spend money to save money.  I do try to split the transactions though like Jenny has examples for because then the rr or ecb you get back pays for the next transaction and then some carry over into the next sale week so it keeps you going.

      • Cayoung_8

        after a while he will get so sick of hearing about couponing he will be like my husband and say… “that's nice dear, but I really don't want to hear about it anymore” LOL and thus problem solved… after a while you start to sound like the teacher on the Charlie Brown cartoon to them.. wah wah waaaah waha waah

        • BargainShopper2011

          My husband enjoys it as much as I do! lol. He helps me cut the coupons and shop and EVERYTHING!

          • Dtcox1

            mind helps me too and helps me shop he loves saving money now ha ha he cant wait to see how low it will go

          • cduck

            i know what you mean….. my husband only began helping me after he realized that he can have “free candy”. he is a junk food person and loves to get all the free candy.

          My husband hates it when I talk about coupons and savings.  I get a rush just knowing how much I saved. :)

      • JumpinJax

        I agree with you @1f9f5bf62753488745928950b26cd2a8:disqus . I think of the RR as money I am saving when I SPEND them instead of when they print. If you start out by buying something that is a good deal regardless of the RR (and that you needed to buy anyway), then you can “roll” your RR in other transactions. AKA, the “2 dollars” you spend will be 2RR from an earlier purchase, and 2RR will print for your next purchase. Only then do I consider the item “free” because otherwise cash out of my budget gets locked into a particular store.

      • ireneY

        I only jump in the Wags game when there's a MM RR, like the Reach TB. Then, every purchase you roll into another RR is a true MM. When the deals dry up, cash out until the next MM!

        • Veronica

          my publix allows you to use rr bevause it says manufactures coupon on it, so I roll mine into grocery purchase so it makes me feel better about it.  I looked at it the same way before I bought my meat with the rr.

      Had some problems with matchups today at CVS and Rite Aid…

      at CVS on the Revlon nail polish the $2 off any Revlon color cosmetic coupon beeped… cashier would not push through said it was the wrong product… sooooo I went out to the car and got the $1 off any revlon nail enamel coupon and tried it and it still said wrong product.  I asked him to show me how it was wrong I was buying Revlon nail enamel and using a revlon nail enamel coupon.  He said “It shows the *can't remember the name* Insta dry.. jet dry… quick dry… 60 second… whatever it is… kind in the picture on the coupon”  I said yeah but the coupon says “ANY revlon nail enamel”  he would not push through so I left without that.. btw.. to prove to me that he was right he got one of those rapid drying ones and scanned it and it did take coupon off without problem… only problem was they didn't have a color I wanted in those ones.. drat… soooo.. then went to

      rite aid and got the dixie plates and the BOGO is on regular dixie plates not “ultra” so 125 years of summer 1/2 dixie ultra plates beeped…. she sent it through anyway, but just a heads up to ya'll… thanks!

      • Gillyp3864

        Never have problems at CVS-my folks puch them thru.

      • Sassycat

        My CVS pushed through the $2 Revlon coupon after checking with the mgr. I go on Sunday mornings before they are out of stock on everything. It seems like they can't/don't/won't restock during the week. Rite Aid stocks on Tuesday and they are pretty good about having items in stock after the truck.

    • Megan

      Walgreens took me a long time to get used to, but now that I finally have all their crazy rules down, I have to say I love it. I get such good deals there, I go first thing Sunday morning so I never run into empty shelves (I know this isn't possible for everyone because some people have kids and can't get out that early). If I have to do more than one transaction I'll split it up between 2 different stores that are located within 3 minutes of each other  (I know not everyone has this option either!) so I never have to deal with cranky cashiers. Basically I just wanna stay stick with it, don't give up, it is worth it!

      • sue

        check when your walgreens get their big truck. ours changes from saturday to tuesday after memorial day. your best day to shop is early the day after big truck. we (the store i work at) are happy to do multiple transactions but ask that we open another register for you if you have more than two so we can take the time to do it right and not feel we need to have to rush as the line backs up at the front of the store. our policy is all about customer service, but please don't ask us to give you more than one register reward per item a day, save some for the other equally important customers.

        • Megan

          Hmm I think you may have posted under the wrong comment? I said I had no problems with Walgreens :)

    • Megan

      Just a heads up on the Walgreens Suave deal, most Walgreens attach a B1G1 coupon to both items, so you won't be able to also use a $1/1 coupon with it.

      • Kristan

        Mine doesn't.  I was able to use both coupons.

    • Rlhunter

      CVS Rocks!!  Just went there two nights ago and spend $12 completing three transactions.  I got 2 Revlon Age Dyfing concealer (on sale for 75% off), one Revlon mascara (75% sale), three Revlon nail polishes, 2 Coppertone sunscreens with tube for face, 2- 500 count little girl hair bands, 1 box of bandaides, 1 package crayola glue pens, pack of gum, and 1 pilot ink pen.  Totally incredible!

    • Magan

      where do I find the 125 years of summer booklets?

      • have looked and asked all over for them.  They are not to be found…by me anyway!

    • Magan

      oh btw…went to get the little swimmers…the 6.99 price is already including the 2.00 off store coupon.  so It would have been 4.99 with manufacturer coupon.  still not bad

      • Kristan

        It must just be your store b/c at mine $6.99 was the original price.  I got it for $2.99

      • Tonyadp1432

        I got mine for 2.99, the 6.99 was before coupon!

      • Coupons_deals_101

        How do you get the store coupons

        • Jammie21

          They are in the walgreens paper

      • Alisadpayne

        the 6.99 is the sale price – the $2 coupon from the May booklet which they should have scanned so now we are at $4.99 – $2.00 off coupon from the insert. I got mine for $2.99….well free after my RR coupons from last week.

    • sue

      gosh i'm sorry to hear there are so many problems with walgreens since i work there. maybe this can help you have a good experience….to help you get the items, shop after the big truck day. it changes after each holiday so the change is coming up. if you have more than two transactions ask them to take you in cosmetics so they can concentrate on you and not get stressed as the line grows. yes, i know they can open a line when it get big but the individual attention from the first will make your visit easier. please don't ask us to give you more than the limit one on a day….that is asking us to break policy and takes away from other valuable shoppers….that might be you one day. Please don't ask us to take expired coupons, we'll get written up, and don't ask us to use a coupon on an item that it is not for…that is fraud. once you have a register opened for you, take your time to get it right. we are trained on coupon policy, not southern savers savings deals, so help us along also. i suggest you write on your coupon why you received it so you don't accidently use  it on the same item another day stopping you from getting another. also, when handing us coupons, give us the store coupons LAST so it won't bring the price of the item below manufacturer's coupon savings which will not take.  hope this helps all of you, come to the sandhill's store….we'll try to take care of you happily and courteously.  byw..we don't lose money on coupons, if it is a manufacture's we get it all back

      • k12is

        HI Sue
        You said that you work at wags right?.. i have a question because i have troubles in some wags withi BOGO free coupons when i used it on BOGO free sale in store.. so, in your coupon training what they said.. can you use a BOGO coupon when a BOGO promotion is runing at the store??

        • Lj

          Omw, this is too funny, because I just had an issue last wk using a rain check that was for the Right Guard bodywash bogo.  I had 4 bottles- the limit imposed by the rain check- and 2 coupons.  The guy that checked me out was new and training.  He rang everything up, gave me credit for 2 of the bodywash, and scanned each of my coupons for .99.  I was like “huh?”  Where did that figure come from?!  My total I had to pay was like 5.??.  I told him that wasn't right.  and he called the manager over, whom I have never seen before either.  The manager finally got the rain check stuff entered right, looked at my coupons and told me that I couldn't use a bogo q on a bogo sale.  Because he's not sure how that would work.  I told him I used them before there and didn't have any problem.  And just stood there and waited till he told me he would try to scan them.  Of course they beeped and he told me see they wont work.  I was like
          “um, I think you have to enter the price.  That's why it beeped”.  He just looked at me and then typed the price in and of course it took the coupon.  He was like “oh, that's how that works!”  lol I just walked out, shaking my head in disbelief.

      • Marysc1000

        I'm glad you were trained about coupons.  Wish the employees at the two stores close to me had been.  The rules differ with each employee.  I shop at CVS and Rite Aid almost every week.  I go to Wags about once every 2-3 months for deals I just can't pass up, mainly because of the inconsistencies and the ridiculous need to buy fillers.  The hassle is more than I can take!

      • Veronica

        my cashiers in Murfreesboro Tn are always helpful, I always check out in cosmetics and they go above and beyond.  I like that they are putting limits on stuff, I have numerous rainchecks bc of people clearing the shelves, and the items still havent restocked.  I'm waiting patiently hoping my coupons dont expire in the meantime.

      • Kenzbug

        Maybe Walgreens should consider training ALL of their employees.  The WAGS closer to me is a pure hassle!  I've even showed them their coupon policy that I printed online and was told by the store that the corp. office didn't know what they were talking about, they don't work in the store.

    • Tami

      I purchased 2liters at cvs this morning and it had a coupon on it for $2.00 off when you purchase a 2 liter and 2 pringles

    • Tami

      I purchased 2liters at cvs this morning and it had a coupon on it for $2.00 off when you purchase a 2 liter and 2 pringles

    • Liltinkb

      Just fyi,there is a less ad coupon for a $1 off for the bayer,use that and the other wal-green's and manufacturer to make $1 profit!I just did it! :)

      • Guest

        If you have more than one of the $3 Bengay manufacturer coupon you can buy 5 at Rite Aid, use the coupons and the in ad store coupons making each one nearly free and you'll get a $10 +up reward (part of the weekend warrior deal).

        • As of yesterday you can only use 4 like coupons at a time, so you can buy 4, then make another transaction for the next.

    • Leticiag30

      In my opinion, walgreens needs to improve their registers/scanners. It takes forever to check out. Their own RR are never taken easily. The cashiers cover one side of the barcodes then the other trying to make them work.   The need of fillers is a hassle. I have to spend more because of this fillers. I spent a lot more time at this store just trying to figure out the fillers and checking out than actually shopping.  My shopping trips are more enjoyable at CVS.  I get stressed when  I check out at Walgreens.

    • Cori C.

      After reading so many comments that speak ill of walgreens…if this many people are upset and that's just on this blog, I wonder how many others are also having negative experiences there. After all the problems with walgreens, I realized they didn't have anything I couldn't get at other stores. I have taken my business where it seems to be appreciated more and I have not missed it at all. Makes me wish I hadn't spent so much time and energy every week to get their so-called great deals that never seem to go right.

      • Kenzbug

        Walgreens is the very last ad I look at.  Most of the time, if it is not just an awesome deal, I don't even attempt it.  And even then, on my few trips to Walgreens, there seems to be a problem every single time.  I try to stick with CVS.  It is a much cleaner, easier store, and has nicer employees.

    • Jessicaf844

      I went to Walmart and they matched the price for everything, they took all my coupons with no problems and matched all my deals. I hate Walgreens,never going back they make you feel like your doing something illegal when you use coupons,Also the manager there told me they had a new coupon policy limiting the number of coupons, so the cashier had a copy of it and i asked her for it and she gave it to me with no problem. i put it on top of my purse and the manager walked by and took it away he said he couldn't give me a copy. No problems at CVS or Rite Aid and they are very nice.

    • Clineleann

      Uh!! I need to vent! I'm new to couponing and it takes me longer to match up all the deals, especially with a 2yr old & new born! My hub is in military & not at all interested in my new hobby! So my son is constantly messing w/ my q's. So the earliest I am able to go shop is Sunday night, when the ad comes out, but everything I ever want to use my qpons on they're already out! On the 1st day of the sale! REALLY?!?? & the teenage managers take forever on rainchecks! Meanwhile my hub calls me panicking bc the kids r crying and I'm not home yet! This has happened EVERY TIME!! I'm ANNOYED & almost ready to give up! & for the ppl who clear the shelves knowing other ppl NEED some, screw u!

      • Tina

        I remember those days of little ones and trying to juggle it all…and feeling alone somewhat in the process.  I call those first few months after a baby is born the time of of re-adjustment…even if you ahd a rhythm before, you have to find a new one once they are born.  My kids were older when I started couponing…still it takes a lot of time until you get a system down.  Hats off to you for trying.  I would encourage you to take a step back.  Limit yourself to either one store on which you follow deals or just limit the amount of time you spend on your Q's each week.  As you get the “feel” of it, you can add more.  Yes, your savings will be reduced in the short-terms but you just may save your sanity in the long-term!  The Q's will always be there…start small.  I promise it will grow and be easier over time.  We can't change the stores or employees but we can go prepared for waits if they seem inevitable.  Bring a puzzle or book.  Talk witha  manager and share with him/her that you have a little one are trying to plan the best time to shop or get a raincheck…be as positive as you can.  Not sure what to offer for your husband.  Fact is, he is probably tired and adjusting as well.  Can you agree to set time for spooking (ex. I”l be gone for 2 hours) or trade care with a friend?  Breathe deep…it does get better over time!

      • Mrsswinehart

        I know your pain….I have 3 children ages 5 and under, am 5 months pregnant with #4 and live 35 minutes from the nearest store. The earliest I ever get to the store is Tuesday or Wednesday of a week, but IT'S OK!!!!!!! Don't stress about getting there on Sunday. It's rare that by that time of the week they haven't already restocked things. Find out when your stores' trucks come and try to hit it up that late morning or early afternoon. Don't be afraid to ask the manager if there is more of a product in the back – I have done that on more than one occassion and they have magically “found a product” that must've gotten “left out of getting on a shelf”!! You're doing the best you can to save your family money and you will be rewarded for what you CAN do and not what you DIDN'T GET TO DO!!! Take it in stride. Your children and husband are your priority!!!

      • Cori C.

        I don't know where you live, but the Walgreens (and several other stores in my area) have caught on to shelf-clearers and made a policy of 1 deal per family. This has only been recently, so maybe they will be starting in your area too. This should help with products being better stocked. I agree with you it is VERY frustrating to go on the first day of a sale and they are out. Some people will tell you “the early bird gets the worm” but I see it as “the paranoid hoarder wipes the shelf clean”. LOL

      • Janet

        I can relate to your frustration! Do not give up!!! You are doing what you can to help your family…that is admirable. I also have a 2 1/2 yr. old and an 11 month old. My 2 1/2 yr. old LOVES to play in my coupons, so I've discovered that if I give him a few of the pages out of the coupons that I don't wont, or have already cut, he will go and get a “wrench” from his plastic tool set and “cut” coupons with me. He loves it and it occupys him long enough for me to get coupons cut and organized while the baby sleeps! Hang in there…it will get easier I promise! :)

      • emtshopper

        If you cant make it on Sunday dont worry. Find out when your store restocks my cvs gets there truck on tuesdays so if i can't make it sunday i go tuesday afternoon that way the have the stock out. Also get to know the main managers not the supervisors of the cashier this way if you see something you want they might be willing to order more than usual.  Just don't give up it really works.  My husband was also leary of the whole coupon thing but after a few months of our grocery bill being next to nothing he quickly learned to help me and not call me when i was out couponing.

      • Do your coupons during nap or after he's in bed, or make sure he has plenty to do while you do them.

        You need to have a serious talk with your husband if he can't take care of his own children for a few hours. You NEED time alone, and to spend your alone time making his financial contribution stretch is kind of rude and you need to stand up and make sure he understands that.

    • Christinacka

      I wanted to know if anyone has had this issue with Walgreens…As I can see several people have had issues with Walgreens period. I am new to couponing but this one was pretty clear to understand! I went to Walgreens here in Holly Springs, NC before work to get (2) Advil Liqui-gels that were on sale for $4.99 and you would get $5RR when you buy two. Now in the ad they have pictured ThermaCar, AdvilPM and a bottle that says Advil Liqui-Gels. I also had (2) manufacture coupons for $2 off 1 bottle, so I should have had a total of $9.98 and then $4 off which would be $5.98 + Tax and got $5RR back. But when I left and looked at my receipts on the way to work I realized they took 1 $2 off and 1 $1 off!! ALSO I did not have any RR on my receipt! I called Walgreens and told them that in their add they have pictured Advil Liqui-Gels and I should have gotten the $5 back and I should have gotten another $1 off! I have to go after work and get it straightened out.

      Also, in the post above for walgreens it says get $2 RR when you buy (1) Listerine Whitening or $4 when you buy 2 Listerine whitening. I went up to the register with 3 bottles of those and the $3 off instore coupon as well as 3 of my manufacturer $1 coupons. Again I didn't get any RR back. Total was $17.97 for 3 then -$9 for instore = $8.97 – $3 MFG = Should have been $5.97 plus tax and I should have gotten $6 RR back. But again NO RR! I told them that online on their site I had seen you get $6 RR back, but now I don't see it on their site. I only see it listed there. Do you know where that RR offer came from? I am going to return the listerine because I was going to put $6RR towards another purchase which now does not pay to get with out the $6RR


      • Connie J.

        If you go to the green Walgreen's tab for 5/22 thru 5/28 and click on the area “Read the guide to getting started” it might help you.
        I know if you are getting multiple items that include register rewards it will only print one.  Even if you split it up and use the first register reward on the same specific item, it will not print a second register reward.
        Good Luck!  We all need it…

        • Lorrose57

          But, if you return it all, and re ring it…they will try to get it all to work for you…if not and you still want the stuff, call or email Catalina and they will mail you the catalina coupons…

    • mommyponder

      I stopped at a Walgreens in Sevierville, TN to pick up some stuff.  The lady at the cosmetics counter was great!  She showed me where she had put out coupons for pantene and several other things, and where the tearpads were (some of them were tiy so I wouldn't have noticed them otherwise) when she saw I was using coupons.  She also told me, since it was Saturday evening, that I got to use the deals from the past week and the sales that were to start Sunday.  She also said when I was ready to check out to come to her register, and was very helpful with the coupons, even one that didn't print well.  Great experience! Unfortunately, I live in NC.

    • Giants11 Jr

      I highly doubt that people go there to maliciously buy every product on the shelf. the old addage is “The early bird gets the worm.” Go gripe to someone else, you have two kids that mess with your q's – YOUR CHOICE for the two kids- no need to put a big SCREW YOU to all of us in the coupon world who see a great deal and buy what we need.  If you “NEED” the product chances are that other people need it too.

      this posting is for tips and questions on the deals, not as a bathroom wall to piss and moan about your personal problems. Let's try to stay on topic here.

    • Rossjen95

      If a drugstore is open 24 hours, what time does the sale start?

      • Hintoncoupons

        Sunday morning at midnight. They will tell you this at the store. Also note they will not have all the sale items posted so you have to know ahead of time what you're looking for.

        • Sorry but the sales start whatever time they put the sale price up, which sometimes is at 7 pm the night before.

          The kicker, however is that the rewards won't print until the Catalina machines reset, which varies by store. You need to ask your store what time theirs reset.

    • Cori C.

      The girl said she was there on the 1st day of the sale. You can hardly get any earlier than that without “cheating” and going on Saturday night. With a newborn and 2-year old I'm sure that's tough and besides, ppl shouldnt have to worry about rushing to get to the store the minute they open just to get a few things they need at a reasonable price. I agree with Clineleann. I don't blame her for being frustrated. Yes, this is a wall for deals, but it's hard to get them when ppl wipe out the shelves on the first day.

    • Kayla

      The $4/2 Advil PM or Thermacare listed above works for regular Advil, as well. I used it at CVS on Sunday.

    • Shirley

      I take it your one of the one's that clears the shelves.

      Well, aren't you a sweetie!

      Confused…the Reach toothbrushes at WAGS aren't in the sales flyer. Am  I missing something?

      • Aroberts14

        When I went to walgreens yesterday and purchased 2 reach toothbrushes I did receive a $1 off coupon.

    • Aroberts14

      When I scanned my reward card at CVS today I received a save $4 on a purchase of $20 or more. Yea!!

    • Gail

      I shopped at Walgreens tonight and bought 4 bottles of Listerine and made two transactions in order to get the $4.00 RR.  Both times, nothing printed and neither I nor the cashier / manager did not understand it. I paid $6.12 for one order (and used a coupon) and the other order I added the rest of my items and used coupons plus my $10.00 RR. I did pretty good just bummed that I didn't get two $4.00 RR to replace my $10.00 RR that I used. Start over again Sunday building my RR's again  :)

      • Lorrose57

        there is an address for the Catalina co and an email address….they will mail you the catalina….I have done this several times…just need the receipt and the offer that you were going for…got mine in about 3 weeks.

    • Chesser6

      My CVS had 50% and 75% off all makeup brands (specially marked). They took the coupons on these items and on the Revlon polish plus giving me back the $4.00. Bought $125.00 worth of makeup for $31.00. There are signs that say stock up 50%-75% on marked items. They are scattered all through the store but are quite visibly marked with round stickers. 
      Plus, if you will join their beauty rewards program which only requires scanning the pull off @ the register they will add an additional 10% off on your beauty purchase.

    • Sonmay33

      Hi, I went Walgreens today and when I went to pay with my RR the cashier told me that I can’t pay with the RR because the system will not giving me RR for the product that I was purchasing can someone help me with this. I bought the 4 degree and got back the 5 RR plus I had 5 RR from a previews sale so I was going to use those 10 RR to buy the vitamin to get the 10 RR but the cashier said that if I us RR to pay for an item I will not get the RR back. Can someone tell me if this is true? Thank you.

      • Nicholerichardsons

        If I am not mistaken you can use a RR as long as it is not from the company. For Example: I buy a bag of pampers and receive a RR for $3 from Pampers and my next transaction I buy pampers wipes for $3 and I use my $3 RR from the previous purchase. I will not get any RRs back because it is from the same company but if I use a RR from any other manufacturer I will receive the RRs from the last purchase. I hope I helped you
