    • Linda

      I visited the Walgreens located at 175 Forum Drive in Columbia South Carolin. Or what we call Sandhills. I tried to purchases the Advil that was on sell. I purchased the first one with no problem. But when I tried to purchase another one with my second transaction the wouldn’t allow it. I wasn’t using any rapid rewards for these purchases. I spoke to the manager Richard and he said that is his policy not to allow any customer to purchase more than one of each item that has a rapid reward. He also told me that the reason he started doing this was because he was to prevent those of us using coupons from buy too many items. There were plently of Advil left on the shelf but they still refused to let me purchase any more. I called other Walgreens in Columbia and they informed me that that is not there policy. I think I will support them.

    • Rachel

      Hi – do you have a copy of the Sambucol coupon? The link isn’t working anymore. My e-mail is rcnway111 at gmail dot com. Thanks, if you have it!


    • Alicia W.

      There is a similar coupon in the People magazine this week (have the Polygamist Cult kids on the cover) for Reach Floss, Reach Toothbrush and Listerine (1 save 50 cents, Buy 2 save $1.50, and buy 3 save $3.00). This corresponds to the RR deal above and might be worth more than the magazine cost :-)

    • Anne

      I went to my Walgreens a few days ago and the manager said that they no longer will accept Internet printed coupons!! Ugh.

    • Transaction (#1)
      Buy Reach Floss (on Sale 3/$9.00)
      Use 1.00 off Reach Toothbrush or Ultraclean Dental Floss
      Buy Reach Toothbrush (on sale 3/$9.00)
      Use 1.00 off Reach Toothbrush or Ultraclean Dental Floss
      Buy Listerine (on Sale 3/$9.00)
      Use 1.00 Listerine 500 ml+

      Total 6.00- But make let’s make it sweeter – heres how: In the Pharmacy there is a little Magazine that is Free called Diabetes & You, there is a 3.00 Wags coupon if you buy 1 Listerine, 1 Reach Toothbrush, and 1 Reach Dental Floss!
      So, also use 3.00 q from Diabetes & You

      Total 3.00
      Get Back 6.00 RR!

    • I did the dove deal two days ago and it didn’t work for me. I did it a week ago and it worked fine. Anyone else have this problem? Now, since I used an RR to pay for it I can’t return it and I am stuck with 8 travel size deo. which I don’t use…I could have bought some diapers..ugghhh

    • Amy

      Katie, I did the same dove deal today w/ 8 travel size deodorants and it did not print a register rewards bcs I thought I had read somewhere the deal was still working. Fortunately, the manager was very nice and I had no problem returning them in the same visit.

    • Sharon

      On the Visine A link has closed (This campaign is over.) Do you know of any other place to get this coupon? Thanks

    • Dianne

      I am a newbie who needs help with a couple of things. 1) I didn’t get $2 RR for Dry Idea yesterday. I had another RR on the same transaction. Is there a limit of one per transaction or was it omitted in error? 2) Can you redeem as many RRs as you want in one transaction? 3) Is there a trick to using the back button to print an extra internet coupon? It never works for me.

      Jenny, you might want to add OOP to coupon lingo. I was a little slow figuring that one out. I’m so grateful I found this site. Your hard work is really making a difference in people’s lives.

    • Stacey

      My Walgreens said that about a week ago, very rudely I might add.
      Anyway, when I got home I was still mad, not really about them not taking the internet coupon, but the manner in which it was done.
      I call 1800Walgreens I told her what happened, she asked which store who had treated me that way and assured me that it would be resolved THEY ALL DO TAKE INTERNET COUPONS awhile back they had stopped but now they all take them. A day later the manager from the store called me at home and apolozied! The employee that was so rude to me he said they have had alot of problems with her and it would be taken care of. Anyway call corp they will call the store and solve your problem!

    • Bradley

      Ok, funny quick story. I was telling my grandma about the Sambucal deal this month. (it rings up $10 here minus $10 wags and minus $4 printable equals $4 moneymaker) I told her only problem with this is it is hard to find more of the $4 off coupon. She opened up the box and low and behold inside the Sambucal box is a $3 off coupon. So if you don’t have a coupon either open up all the ones you have already purchased or just open the one you are about to buy. Still a $3 moneymaker for me this month.

    • Jenny,
      I did the diaper deal last week. Got 3 packs, had (3) 5.00 coupons and 2 deod. with coupons. Total owed was 13.21 I paid with 10 RR bucks and the rest with cash. I received a 2.00 Rewards bucks for the deod. but did not get the 10.00 Rewards bucks for the diapers. Did not understand. Manager said I lowered the cost of the diapers below 25.00 and would not get the reward of 10.00. Did I do this wrong???

      Cindy- You can’t use the Register Reward from the same deal to pay for the deal again. If the $10 RR you paid with for the second set was from the first set of diapers it will not print another RR. That is how they limit you on the deal. Next time use that $10 to pay for something else and do the deal again not using the RR to pay for it.

    • angela


    • Edith

      FYI – M & M ‘s are NOT a Hershey product they are made by Mars. But there is still a coupon to save $3 on two bags in the easy saver catalog – Next page at the bottom. Just make sure you get the right one =).

    • Sylvie

      I’m new and TOTALLY psyched!!

      I just tried a version of Katie’s version of the Listerine deal at my Wallgreens in Norcross, GA and it worked!!

      1 – Reach Floss (on Sale 3/$9.00)
      1 – Reach Toothbrush 2 pack (on sale 3/$9.00)
      1 – Listerine (on Sale 3/$9.00)

      Total 9.00-

      Used $3/3 coupon (3/15 paper)
      Used $3/3 coupon from the free magazine Katie mentioned in the pharmacy

      The cashier told me it wouldn’t work because both coupons said “manufacturer’s coupon” but tried it anyways when I said “but it says Walgreens only so it’s a store coupon.” She tried it and it worked!!

      Total 3.00
      Got Back 6.00 RR!

      SO excited! I’m going to repeat this a couple of times (not using the RR… thanks for that heads up) and donate to a shelter that my church supports.

      THANK YOU for the wonderful information!! (going to try the Dove deal tomorrow and use my RR from this transaction!)

    • Gina

      Does anyone know Walgreen’s policy on register rewards? Can you use more than 1 register reward per transaction? Last week I used 3 RR’s for one transaction. I went into the same Walgreen’s this week and they said I could only use one RR per transaction.

      Thanks for the clarification!

    • Sylvie

      Just did the Dove deal (I’m now hooked on this) and the trial size deodorant didn’t work. Oh well… still a great deal once you add in the coupons.

    • Trish

      I went to the Walgreens in Irmo, and they would not let me use my coupons for Listerine/Reach and get the RR coupon. I had to do one or the other.

    • Sylvie

      Just did the dove deal and it’s better than the ad describes.

      I bought 8 products and got $10 RR (instead of $8 as the ad stated…did it twice so it wasn’t a fluke)

      I did a combination of 3 shampoos and 4 deodorants, a single bar of soap @ 1.19 (they only had one or I would have split things up differently). The single soap WAS included in the RR sale!!!

      Since the soap ends up at $1.19… Buy 8 of those and get $10 RR back… makes them FREE!!!

      I just need to find a Walgreens that has more single bars of soap. Thank you Jenny!! I’m using this deal again for our food-pantry. This is such a blessing to be able help others through couponing!!!

    • Fern

      Just wanted to let everyone know that the Dove deal is still working with the 8 single bars of soap and you get back $10. With the 25% off my bars came to $1.04 each so I made $1.68 on my eight.
      Thanks Jenny!

    • Lori

      I did both the Dove deal and the listerine deal & received $6 RR for each. I want to do both deals again & use the RRs. Is there a way to tell the RRs apart? (they are both for $6.00. I know I can’t use the Dove one to do the Dove deal again) Any advise?


    • Jenny

      Do you have a coupon for listerine or reach handy? Or a coupon for Dove? Take the coupon and compare the first 5 numbers (after the 5) to the first 5 numbers on the Register Reward. The RR that matches the reach/listerine coupon is from those products, the Dove RR will match the dove coupons.

      Or it should anyway. Hope it works for you.

    • Lori


      I figured it out! Next time I’ll pay more attention.

      You’re the best. I love this site–it’s saving me so much money.


    • marcey

      Did anyone answer the question of can you use more than one RR at a time to pay and also, if you buy more than one item in one transaction that gives you RRs will they all print out together? I want to buy the irish spring body wash, the dove soap, and the 24.7 face scrub to get $25 RRs.

    • marcey

      Also, about how long does it take to get the rebate checks from walgreens and rite aid?

    • marcey

      Sorry, I meant to say ecbs not rr in the last sentence of my first post, but the question applies to walgreens and cvs.

    • Kim

      Thanks Sylvie – comment #20. I was thinking of trying that exact combo of coupons. You answered my question before I had a chance to post it! I’ll try it today!

    • Hollis

      Just wondering- I sent off for my first Easy Saver Rebate check last month. The website said it was shipped March 6. It’s March 17, and I still haven’t received it. Is this normal?

      • Jenny

        It does take about 3 weeks to get your first card. Then after that you can enter the card number you already have they will just load the money straight to that and it takes a couple of days.

    • carolin

      Please help. Has anyone had a problem with getting your RRs when you use coupons. I have. I tried the Dry Idea deal. Buy 1 get $2RR. I had the $2 coupon. I call the catalina number and they tell me that if you use a manuf coupon and the total before tax is more then what the RR would be. You don’t get the RR. Tonight after work I go to a different Walgreens and try the Glucerna deal. You buy 2 boxes and you get $2RR. I didn’t get the RR. So I call the 800 number when I get home. Speak to a different rep then last time and she tells me that me that you aren’t suppose to get RRs if you use manuf coupons, but since Walgreens doesn’t mention that in their ad. She will take my info and get the RR to me in 6-8 weeks. Does anyone else have this problem? I have tried 3 different Walgreens to do different RR deals and have only gotten 1 RR and that was with the huggies deal. I’ve even gone back to that Walgreens and still haven’t gotten a RR when I should have.

    • Tracey

      Carolin – That Dry Idea deal is at CVS where you get $2 in ECBs.

    • Beth

      There was a coupon in this Sunday’s inserts for $1.50 on Listerine. If you buy 3 Listerine and use 3 of those coupons, you pay $4.50 OOP and get $6 RR! Also, I did the Dove deal and received a $10 RR instead of the $8 I was expecting! A nice surprise!

    • crystal

      walgreens has rimmel mascara b1g1 this week. the new issue of All You should be in WalMart by Friday. it has a FREE rimmel mascara coupon. You can get two for free with the Walgreens deal….

    • Ashley

      I have to share my Walgreens Trip tonight
      #1 – Purchased 1 Reach 2-pk Toothbrush, 2 Listerines
      used (2) $2.00 off Listerine Anticavity
      used (1) $3 off 3 from the diabetes mag in pharmacy
      Total OOP $2.38 – Received $6 RR

      #2 – Purchased 8 TRAVEL SIZE bars of Dove soap (ringing up $1.19 each)
      Total OOP $10.40 – Received $10 RR

      It’s like Walgreens paid ME to move their product!

    • Any

      I work for Walgreens. I have extensively researched the RR deals/ coupon/ in store promotion deals. If you make sure you are getting the right products then you will get the RR. These deals are not there to “trick” customers. I take full advantage of our deals and have never had a problem with them, as long as I get the correct products. My biggest complaint is the wording of some of the deals (which I have voiced to corporate.) The RR program is getting better. If you have a problem with one of the deals, speak with the store manager first. Most of them will help you in any way they can. If that doesn’t solve your problem then I would call (800)Walgreens, but give the store manager a chance to fix it for you first.

      To answer a previous person’s question… you can not use more RR’s than the amount of products that you buy (i.e. you buy a $29.99 bottle of vitamins and try to use 3 – $2 RR’s).

    • Carol

      I went to Walgreens last night. I found a Dove deod. for .99. They would not accept the 1.00 off coupon because they said it wasn’t more than the coupon. :-( I’ve never had that problem before now!

      Anyway – just fyi. I think different people work coupons differently. At least that seems to be the case in my Walgreens.

    • Susan

      I just went to Walgreens. I went and got the coupon out of the Diabetes and You book. I had my coupon from the Sunday paper too. The clerk would not take both of them. I told her that one was a Walgreen’s coupon and the other out of the paper but she would not take it.

    • crystal

      Got the new All You today and the FREE Rimmel mascara coupon says “Walmart Only.” Guess you can’t use it at Walgreen’s after all unless someone knows if Walgreen’s will take it. It is a manufacturer’s coupon.

      • Jenny

        It is a manufacturer coupon and any store will get reimbursed it is just if you have a nice cashier that isn’t going to say something.

    • I had a bad experience at two Walgreens today and good at others.
      1) Pelham, AL – the cashier(Judy)who has been working at Walgreens for 5 years said I could only purchase 3 Orbit Gum (clearance for .32) with the EasySaver coupon the gum is free.
      2) Green Valley Road, Birmingham, AL – store manager (Jeff) said Walgreens would only let one use one coupon per transaction either use a manufacturer coupon or the Catalina (Register Rewards). “Walgreens is not to let people use coupons get $100.00 worth of items and only pay a little amount, we might as well just give you everything and let you walk out the door without paying anything!” He called Ms. Rhonda (admin at the district office) she explain that you can not use two coupons on one item – wording(i.e. if you use a manufacturer coupon for diapers then none of the amount of the Catalina (Register Rewards) should come off the diaper price.)
      3) On a good note if you love gum – check out the clearance gum prices at Walgreens (oh, by the way if it is Orbits this week you can use the EasySaver coupon on page 6 to get the clearance ones free.) And also the Kissables are .22 and Baja California Starburst at .22 each.
