    • love2hate

      You can actually use 2 $0.60/1 Viva Paper Towel Big Rolls from SS 3/11 and it’ll be a lot cheaper!!

    • Jordyn’s mommy

      will not work!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WG March Viva coupon expired yesterday.  I love these towels and wish it would but wanted to let everyone know that the Q is expired…. Thank you for the idea anyway…. :(

      • Grasswidow58

        I just printed the WG Viva coupon and it doesn’t expire till 3/31. Strange

        • Jordyn’s Mommy

          cool! i printed it too.  The book says 26th but glad this one doesn’t… Thank you soooo much! Maybe some peoples book doesn’t expire until the 31st either?… anyway, thanks and sorry for putting that it wouldn’t work

          • mandy

            Yep…my store’s book is good through March 31.

        • kat

          I just printed mine and it doesnt expire till 4/17 so that is weird

      • Amanda H

        I just printed the coupon and it says good through 3/31.  I am curious to know as to why you say this won’t work.  Thanks :)

    • Mirdclar

      the instant value coupon says “limit one coupon per customer per offer”

    • Tinkernette

      There aren’t and RR advertised in the flyer…

      • mandy

        “unadvertised deal”

        • Tinkernette

          Can you ask for a refund if the RR don’t print?  I don’t shop at WG much… too many bad experiences.

    • mandy

      The coupon books at the front of the store have them on page 15. Expire 3/31

      • mandy


    • ile_ban

      is it a RR or catalina?  if you get a catalina, you would need to buy 4.  right?

    • Penny

      Did this yesterday at wags in Rock Hill SC and it DID NOT print out a RR!!

    • Nhmejia

      This may be an offer only at some Walgreens.  I just looked through my ad and there’s nothing about the RR, just the $1 off Q.

      • RAYMOM


    • Tisha Seymour

      i thought u could only use one coupon per item sold no matter if it was a store Q or a man. Q  thtas what they told me before when i tred to do something like this 

    • Shamaeduncan

      It did not work for me in Atlanta but I still did good
      2-packs of Viva paper towel1-Nice Trash Bags3-chocolates
      All for $8.48 which includes a previous $4RR

    • Guest

      The MQ I just printed says “2-pack” (no “or larger”), so not sure if it’s supposed to be used for a 6-roll package???

    • Brooke

      Has anyone done this successfully? I like these paper towels and read about an easy way to make your own baby wipes from them

      • Jennifer In NC

        I just did it about 15 minutes ago in Salisbury, NC.  It worked perfectly.  Total came to $9.82 after tax and I got the $4.00 RR with my receipt.  Cashier was super sweet too and very excited about my deal :)

        • MomOf2

          I also live in Salisbury : ) I love our Walgreens! At both that I shop at (Innes and Jake Alexander) the cashiers are always great with my coupons! I’ve even had one hand me a few she had behind the counter to help me get a better deal!

      • GAGirl

        Yes and back when my 13 yr old was a baby she used to get terrible diaper rash.  I cut these up and used a very low percentage water/vinegar solution.  The water/vinegar solution was suggested by my doctor.  I cut these in half and put them in an old diaper container.  It cleaned great and my daughter’s rash cleared up immediately.  The vinegar kills whatever germ that is causing diaper rash.

    • Seanmart

      Check Publix for coupon. They have a dispenser that has $1.00 off 2 or more rolls at my store in Marietta. This would make them even less! 

    • I just purchased one pack of the rolls since my local Walgreens didn’t have anymore.  The item was on sale for $4.99 so, I used one MF coupon, one store coupon, and was going to cash in my $4 Register Reward.  The cashier made me buy two other things because she said that RR were a coupon.  I didn’t know this.  I would have gotten the rolls for $.49 each pack.  Why did she make me buy 2 more items before she would add my coupons?

      • Kat

        That’s one of the reasons I don’t shop at Walgreens anymore. 

      • Grannypig12001

         The items can be anything… I always look for items that are really cheap. Usually I can find clarance items for as little as .25 and then it will take the RR.  I went to Walgreens here in Lexington where they had reduced some of their Olay items to 2.29. I had 2.00 off coupons. For 45 bottles of Olay, 4 bottles of Irish spring, 3 bottles of Old Spice bw, 1 bottle of Gillette bw, one Fushion trimer, 1 Airwick starter kit, I paid 41.00 for all this and I got 18.00 back in RR rewards. The Olay rung up 2.29 for 23 bottles and 1.15 for 22 bottles. The cashier took all 45 2.00 coupons. I was already ahead 11.00 just on the olay. The Walgreens in my area are super. I have gotten some GREAT deals in the last 2 weeks at the Walgreens around here…..

        • Marvilyn Lyons

          I just got my deal…I found .60 coupons in the 3/11 ss. I used 2 of them and Walgreens 1.00 off (2). Then I used my 4$ towards 4 bottles of fabric softner. I will be using the Viva towels for homemade wipes. they are great!!! here is the link:)http://www.homemademamas.net/search/label/Baby

        • KYQ

          Wow!  I’m amazed Walgreens actually had 45 of anything in stock!  And you must have great skin!

      • Jscm57

        Wags requires a ‘filler’ item.  For example, if you have 5 items that you’re buying and you have a MF for all 5 items and one RR, then you’ll have to buy an item you do not have a MF q for in order for the register to accept the RR.  A filler item can be anything.

      • Delektolove

        walgreens.. only takes RR’s if you have as many items as RR’s.. not in dollar amounts.. if you have a rr for 10 dollars you only have to buy 1 item but if you have 10 single rr’s you must buy 10 single items over .99 hope this helps

    • Ang56502

      Did this yesterday at my store (Spartanburg SC) and it worked with both manufacturer q and store q and my RR printed!!! Great deal!

    • Jscm57

      Site for coupon won’t navigate correctly on my computer; no print :o( Anyone else having issues?

      • Marvilyn Lyons

        I found .60 coupons in the 3/11 ss, I believe and the store scanned the Walgreens coupon twice for me.

      • Guest

        Mine printed fine but when I went to the store, the cashier automatically scanned from her coupon book. Scanned once but took $2 off for both items. On top of that, she was nice enough to ask if I had military ID. Apparently, it’s 15% off every tue for service members and family. Made the deal even better:) I just never knew!

        • Bridgett

          If I understand your statement correctly, are you saying that if you are military you can get a 15% off at Walgreens every Tuesday????

          • Guest

            That’s what the cashier told me. I checked my receipt when I got home and sure enough it has 15% written next to every item on my receipt. Instead of $5.99 for paper towel, mine rang up $5.09. Check with your store. Maybe its only the Fayetteville store in NC, I don’t know!

    • Jodielynn23

      Do you have to buy two to get the RR or will you get the RR if you only buy one pack?

    • GAGirl

      I got a $5 RR here in GA.  :)

    • Traci

      I purchased 2 this afternoon and the RR did not print.  Can a take them back and try another store.  The register I used was in cosmetics … could that have been why it didn’t print.  :( 

    • Dwilson19

      my SS 3/11 insert has a .85cents off 1 viva paper towels man coupon!! woo hoo makes it even chaper :-) 

      • Piphidancer

        Thank you for posting this info…  I couldn’t remember where I saw the coupon.

    • Seanmart

      I HATE WALGREENS!!! I went today with coupons in hand. After short disagreement w/ cashier, Store Manager was called. He said I could only use one coupon per item. I told him he needed to check the store policy about this, because it says a MFGR coupon can be used w/ store coupon per item. I was informed ” I make the rules for my store and I don;t allow it”. So I kindly told him where he could put his paper towels and left the store. This happens every time I try to use coupons at Walgreens. Is there any way to file a formal complaint against this?  It’s so horrible to be put in this situation, much less have a Store Manager treat you like this!

      • 1bigsaver

        Yes you can.  I have complained to the corporate office through their contact us link on their website and always receive a call the next day.  Sorry you had issues!  This is why I refuse to go to Wags no matter how great a deal might be.

      • Sleach01

         It depends on the store.  We have several close by and there are certain ones I avoid.  Others are great.  I hope you have a choice and can find one that works for you. 

      • Kimgay182

        I hate Walgreens too! I also had a disagreement with the manger at the Walgreens on Hwy 17 in GA. I was not even using coupons and the register rewards did not print and he would not give them to me. He acted as if he did not care.

      • Amie

        I really think you should email Walgreens and make a complaint. That is wrong! They have a coupon policy online that you can print. Even if the manager was simply mistaken, he shouldn’t speak to you like that.

    • Asharpe380

      My Walgreens will only let you use one store coupon in this transaction because it planly reads LIMIT 1 COUPON PER CUSTOMER PER TRANSACTION.  Wish you would stop posting these “deals” that are simply FRAUD!

      • ToddDu

        My coupon actually states one per offer so the deal that was posted is not fraud.  One per offer to me means the same as one per item, as it did to the cashier

      • Kate

        If you don’t like the way that Jenny posts these deals, then leave this site. She works really hard to bring these to our attention. If you were using the store coupon from the March book, then you would have only needed to scan it once, and it would have taken off $2.00, $1.00 per package. But don’t accuse her of posting fraudulent deals, it’s rude and unnecessary. Yes, she may from time to time make mistakes, but we’re all human and I’m sure we’ve all made mistakes. 

        • guest


      • guest

        Chill out.  You actually only have to use ONE store coupon, and it will take the $1 of BOTH 6-packs.  That’s how Wags q’s work.  You only need one, no matter how many items you are buying.  It will take it off each item anyway.  No need for more than one q, still the same deal.  I have donw this with a million things, including juice, wipes, etc.  I use my MFQ’s, and ONE wags q, and the wags q automatically takes off the amount of the q from each item, e.g., If the wags q is for $1 off a 6-pk, and you buy 2 6-pks, it will AUTOMATICALLY take off $2 with one coupon.

      • Guest

         For me, 1 Store coupon automatically took $2 off for both items ($1 each). So, technically, you are only using 1 store Q. HTH

      • CouponLady

        Shame on you.  You should be grateful Jenny spends all this time to help us out.  I wish she could block you from this site.  We don’t need ungrateful people like you here. Are you from that extreme coupon show?  If so, please go back.

      • Emily

        Wow! You are so nasty and unappreciative! If you don’t like the deals Jenny posts, please do us all a favor and don’t come back.

      • FYI

        FYI  it is not fraud, you just don’t know how the system works.  they only need to scan the store qpon once, it will take off the other one too.

        • Elle

          No, it is considered FRAUD!  The company must follow the rules on the manufactuer coupon.  You all should not try to work the system!

    • Svetla

      My Walgreens in DE dosent have the $4 RR promotion….just $5.99 sale price…I guess each store is individual…had to buy Scott naturals $4 after $1 off….

      • Guest

         mine didn’t either, Even the weekly ad only has the sale price advertised for $5.99. Bought 2 and sure enough, $4 RR printed. So, I don’t think you will see the RR advertised at the store.

    • Zjqtcj

      One time I went to a Walgreen store and it did not print out the RRs for me. The manager was called and said becaused I used coupons and RRs (even from other different deals) so I didn’t get a new RR. I argued with her that I had always did that way and had no problems even in that store before. Later another manager came over and found out that the RR machine was not turned on. How could this happen and how could they make up reasons for excuses!

      • Bamabobbie

        Same thing happened to me today.  Only the reason mine didn’t print was because I used two RR’s from the Schick razor and they said it was the same promotion???   They rerang them and it printed the RR.  I’m really getting tired of Wags.

    • Kmichele

      I just did the deal in Memphis and it worked.  TFS


      My Walgreens will only let you use one store coupon in this transaction because it planly reads LIMIT 1 COUPON PER CUSTOMER PER TRANSACTION

      • d-d

        when they scan the store qpon, it will automatically subtract the other too, they only need to scan it once.

    • Keisajeffries

      Just tried the deal again and register reward did not print.

    • MissPure1

      This worked for me yesterday in Germantown, TN. I did the deal twice and they ended up being $2.39 per 6 pack.

    • Gloriarestrepo81

      It was 6.99 down here in South Florida.

      • just me

        It says 6.99 on the bag but in the ad this week 5.99

    • Kimgay182

      Has anyone in Savannah, GA done this deal?

    • guest

      I did this deal earlier in the week – it worked great.  Found $1.00 blinkie in Publix for the towels…..will make this deal a bit sweeter.  Plan to do it again before it expires.

    • newbie:)
