    • Sandra

      I have tried finding these kid's cards, are they like the .99 c cards where there is a little sign and they are all in the same spot? My walgreens has 2 FULL AISLES of cards, but I couldn't find them.

      • diane

        I went to 4 wags, and the 4th one had them. They are cute – I don't know why all the stores don't have them. They were on the bottom row at the very end of the card aisle. They are small and say things on the front like: Woo-Hoo!

    • gkfcbf93

      Does anyone know if Walgreens deals for the next week start Saturday like at CVS?

      • Jana

        Yes, they do at my Walgreens on the regular sale items, but register rewards do not print.

      • irisfaith

        Mine does not start early, but switches over at exactly midnight. Athens, GA

    • kcreviews

      I tried the Hallmark card thing earlier this week and there were no kids cards under 99 cents. Oh well.

      • Hannahs_Mom

        Yea, same here. I couldn't find the .49 cents ones either.

    • Whitney

      I found an excellent deal at Walgreens this week. They have a coupon for Infusium 23 and if you stack that with the $3 off coupon in the All You mag. if makes an 8 oz. spray bottle of leave-in conditioner FREE.

      • Whitney

        Their coupon is in the May coupon booklet.

      • 3monkeysmom

        I did this too :-) I had the $3 off from All You and I also had (4) $2 off. So I got 5 spray leave-in conditioners for $3.95!! My 4 year old daughter has super-tangly hair and kiddie detangler doesn't help at all so I have use the grown-up good stuff for her :-)

        • luckysmomabram

          Where did you get (4) $2 off q's from?

          • 3monkeysmom

            They were from newspaper inserts. Not exactly sure which paper or area they came from…..I'm in AL and I don't think we got that coupon but I could be wrong, a cousin near Chattanooga gave me coupons she didn't need but she also had coupons from her sister who lives near ATL so I'm not sure if which area they came from…could be both.

            • RebeccaFer

              The $2/1 was from 3/28 SS. I wish I had seen this earlier because the q expired on 4/30. :( The All You mag q is in the May issue.

          • There are $2 off coupons for the Infusium in the May Wags coupon book in the store near the sale papers. Thats where I found the $3 veet coupon to pair with the printable one at veet.com making it 99cents :)

      • Thanks! I'll have to lookout for that. :)

      • kjmiller

        Picked it up today. :) Thanks for posting!!

    • 1rose

      I bought 4 of them and did not get $4 RR's…bummer

    • bevb

      Does anybody know for sure about RR policy? I bought 2 items this week which should have given me 2 different RR printouts. I used 1 RR (a $3) to help pay for them. When I finished my transaction only one of the RR printed out. When I questioned the manager I understood her to say that if you use RR's to pay for transactions you will not receive the RR printouts. Basically I understood her to say if I bought 3 items which should print out RR's and I used 3 RR's to pay for them I wouldn't get any printed out RR's. If I bought 3 items and used 2 RR's to pay for them then I would get 1 of the RR's in return. (my example of understanding not her's). No mention of if it being same manufacturer then you wouldn't get credit. I hope you understand what I am trying to say and ask.

      • armywife74

        Register Rewards get confusing even for the managers. However if you were using the Schick Hydro register rewards for 3 dollars to get the Skintamate one for 3 dollars thinking they are made by different companies so it should work, it wouldn't. Schick is Schick and Skintamate says Johnson's on it. However the Skin one printed out saying thank you from Schick and JJ. So the Hydro would void the Skin RR from printing. It is worse though when its one without a thanks on it and you are trying to remember who is connected to it. Confusing at times. However, if none of the rewards are attached to products on the new rewards to receive you should get all new rewards.

      • Mrssmith

        Bev-I have had managers who do not even understand how this works and used to tell me, “You won't get your rr.” Until I figured it out and thanks to southern savers now they don't tell me that. But what you can do is use a register reward to pay for an item that generates a rr so long as it isn't the same manufacturer. For example, you could use a Tropicana rr to pay for something from say, Kimberly Clark (Kotex for example if it was going to generate a rr). Also if the rr deal had a limit of 2 items do not try to buy the items together or you will likely not get one of your rr's. Split them into two different transactions and do not pay with the first rr. IE-So if you are buying dove shampoo that gives a rr and you want to buy more than one of the shampoos use a different rr to pay for the second one. So buy the 1st Dove shampoo, tuck your rr away in your wallet for use on something else. Then go get another shampoo and use your coupon from, say Ghiradelli. (As a general rule, I usually try to use food ones for non-food items because MOST manufacturers do not make food AND health and beauty items.) Hope that helps.

      • SHaron

        You cannot buy two of the same item in one transaction or only one register reward will print. Example: I bought two of the shaving creams, but had to do two transactions to get both register rewards.

    • Hattie

      I was very happy with the free items from this week.

      Looks like I will probably just do the Nivea deal, although I have been doing it a CVS as well. It is nice stuff.

    • I am really surprised I haven’t seen this deal yet. (unless I’ve just missed it already listed) At walgreens you can get veet for 99 cents. There is a printable coupon at Veet.com for $3 off and then in the coupon booklet at Walgreens for May there is a Walgreens coupon for $3 off as well. Combine the 2 and you pay 99cents as opposed to $6.99! This is a great deal especially since its Spring and Summertime is fast approaching :)

      • meldeb3k

        Thanks for sharing this link, this is a great deal!

    • Judy

      Can you use a rewards coupon to pay for an item that is going to print out a rewards coupon. My local Walgreen's says you can not.

      • bevb

        That is what my local one is saying also. I posted about this earlier asking if anybody knows for sure. I don't see it written anywhere in their ads that I can find.

        • diane

          I just got back from wags – bought plackers and skintimate and foil. Used plackers q, wags store q for foil, and $5.00 rr. I got back a $3.00 rr for skintimate and a $2.00 rr for the plackers.

          • Mom2Ryley

            I bought plackers today and they didn't print a RR. The sales associate said they are just on sale now for $2 instead of $2.99 w/ $2 RR. I returned them.

        • tnfullhouse

          Read over Jenny's guide to Walgreens, it will help explain alot of this. Basically there's a few rules to walgreens 1) RR will not print if you use the SAME RR to pay, but will if RR is from a different item 2) you have to have more items than coupons, the exception being in ad coupons, that's why you may need a filler item, or somthing that you do not have a manufacturer coupon for. Alot of Walgreens aren't really familiar with their own policy because it is so complicated. I have found if I follow Southern savers scenarios, it works fine. I've never had a problem.

          • One other thing is that if the manufacturer of the items you are rolling one into the other for are the same, the RR won't print.

          • bevb

            I do know all the things you are saying. I'm not new to couponing or Walgreens.(thanks, anyway) This is the first time it has happened. My point is I think the manager was saying if you use RR to purchase things that you should be getting RR you won't be getting RR no matter what the manufacturer is. Say you buy a P&G item that is suppose to give you back RR and use RR from a previous purchase from a totally different manufacturer you would not get those RR simply for the fact you used a RR towards the purchase. Not that it is the same manufacturer.

            • skflbeaches

              Make it easy on yourself and redeem at your local grocer. They are a manu. coupon and will scan.

            • meldeb3k

              Yes, this is similar to what a store mgr. told me last week. If I use RR's to pay, I won't get any back.

      • no spend dad

        I have used reward coupons to get other items with rewards but you just can't use a reward 1 day and go back the next day and get the same item. The reward says the sponser on it and they know.

      • gingerinCA

        At MOST Wags, you should be able to use one RR and still get another, as long as the mfr is not the same. But other people on here have reported the same thing you are saying.
        I've never had it happen, but I do know of one Wags that will not print a RR of the same amount- for example, if you are supposed to get a 3$ RR and pay with a 2$RR, the 3$RR will print. But if you pay with a 3$RR, the 3$RR will NOT print. That's not the way it's supposed to be, but I've had it happen enough times at this particular store that I'm pretty sure that's what's going on. So the best thing for you to do is to try another Wags, or just keep trying transactions at your Wags and see what happens. Just because the store manager says it won't print, doesn't mean it won't. Wags won't print a standardized policy, so it's a lot of trial and error, IMO. Hope that helps.

    • nospend dad

      where do you get this “Home made simple” booklet they are talking about. Thanks

    • sls

      I need some help- I have been using coupons for a few weeks and doing great. However, I am stuck on the toilet paper and paper towels. I need some now and I almost gave in and went to costco- but I am going to hold off and try and do better. Any ideas on where I can get some good deals on toilet paper or paper towels this week? I would appreciate the help!

      • Laura

        Walgreens has Cottonelle 12pk for 5.99. There is a manufacture's coupon in the April issue of All You Magazine (found in Walmart) for 1.00 off and there is also a $1.00 store coupon in the Walgreens May coupon booklet.

        You can use both of these coupons and buy a small filler item. You will then pay 3.99 for a 12pk of Cottonelle.

        • sls

          Thank you- I will try tomorrow. I have never shopped at walgreens (well, with coupons) but I am going to do it. Why do I need a filler item?

          • Walgreens is tricky, because your number of coupons has to equal number of items, hence the need for fillers. I went last night and candy bars were .39, so I grabbed 2 to use 4 coupons when I bought 2 packs of diapers.

            If you haven't already, make sure you read the Walgreens tutorials so you know how to hand over your coupons, etc.

          • In store coupons don't count towards the coupon ratio!!! So if you're just buying toilet paper and using 1 manufacturer coupon and 1 in store wags coupon you will be fine. If you needed to pay with a register reward then yes you would need a filler. You can't use more coupons than items you have, that is why people grab fillers. But as long as your items equal your man. coupons and RR you will be fine.

        • KrisAllen

          the best deal for me is rite aid. I get $5 off $25 coupons, wait for Cottonelle to go on sale for $5.99 and buy 4. Total = 25.39. -$5, -4 $1 and you spent $16 for 48 double rolls. 33 cents a roll! And it's pretty much the best toilet paper, to me.

      • BarbaraSC

        If you have a Harris Teeter around, they have their brand 12 pack of double rolls for $3.99…limit one.

    • In Montgomery, I got a .75/1 Softsoap coupon in the weekly junk mail insert.

    • Stacey

      Do I have to spend $10 AFTER coupons to get the RR for buying $10 of a certain product? If I use the Mr Clean coupons and the price drops below $10 will it still print?

      Also – my ad this week had an additional .44 cents off Hallmark cards over $1.50 (limit 6). I bought 8 cards and when she scanned the coupon it actually gave me 7 x .44 cents off, and still printed the $5 RR. The ad expires today but since the Hallmark deal is still going on i'd check the ad in case the coupon is still in there. Rather than buying cheap cards I don't need I stocked up on Mother's Day and birthday cards for the next couple of months.

      • Most areas you spend $10 before any coupons or RR.

    • jane

      I didn't see the $4 Nivea coupon in the Greenville paper. Did I miss it? What papers did carry it? Thanks!

      • pharmSCgirl

        That stinks! I figured we wouldn't get the Nivea coupons once again. If the greenville paper didn't have it then the spartanburg one probably doesn't either. Does anyone know if it's in The State paper this week?

        • Susan

          The State didn't have them either!!!

      • I'm in the Charleston area and I couldn't find the Nivea coupon either :( I'm really sad about that cause it would be SUPER helpful to get that deal!

        • curliegirlie85

          Charlotte Observer had them

      • Mom2Ryley

        I'm in Easley and I didn't see it either. So sad :( I may have to buy these online!

    • ktgrok

      Do the store “in ad” coupons count when it comes to “can't have more coupons than items”?

      • no they don't.

      • Christie

        No–only the manufac. coupons. Use your manufac coupons first, then any store coupons at the end. They do not count in the # of coupons you're using versus # of items you're purchasing.

    • Asmith

      I like to use my register rewards on grocery items that are a good price.

    • mparfaite

      has anyone found the .49 kids cards for hallmark. i havent' been able to

      • Deanna

        I have not been able to find them eathier. If someone could give a location that has them it would be appreciated

      • phgammage

        I could not find any 49 cent kids cards either. I am beginning to think some Walgreens do not carry the same merchandise as another does.

    • meg

      I was pretty happy with my take this week! One thing to note about the All You Nivea B1G1, it's only good on the large body wash bottles that were 5.59, still it worked out to a small money maker with only one of the B1G1s. We were lucky in Houston and got the $4 off 1!

      I had $3rr from last week, and I paid about $7 in two transactions. I got:

      4 bottles of body wash
      2 Kotex products
      2 sure deoderants
      4 pert shampoos
      2 bic hybrid razor packs

    • sharon60

      I'm new to couponing and this past Fri I went to Walgreens on the spur of the moment so I didn't have my ducks in a row on the process. They had Gas-X on sale for $2.99, there was a store Q in their booklet for $2 off and I had a $1 off M Q so I was looking forward to FREE. Both the clerk and store manager were “new” and neither Knew what order the Q's were supposed to be rung up and I didn't either and then the Manager said their store Q was a manufacturer Q, so I just gave up and didn't argue. But I want to know what order these Q's should be applied and I will write it down for future reference AND stand my ground next time. Thx

      • Christie

        When I learned to do couponing, I learned the ropes off the information on http://www.moneysavingmom.com In it, she advises you use the manufac coupons first and then any store coupons at the end. I have always done this, and have never had an issue with it. Hope this helps.

        • sharon60

          Thanks so much for the reply.  I'll try that this week!


      • justjenn

        I am new too, have been really watching for three weeks now. I have instructions for Wag.
        First use a $/$$ ($5 off when you spend $20). I have yet to see any of these.
        Second- RR (Register Rewards)
        Third- Regular Manufactures
        Last- Store Coupons.

        I went to a friends church and attended a class. The lady leading the class was amazing and had tons of knowledge. She had even attended a class that Jenny gave. These were instructions Jenny gave out. I hope this helps.

        • sharon60

          Thanks so much, this really helps me understand.  I'm gonna try this week for the Veet and we will see if it works!


        • Amy_Q

          Hi justjenn! Was it my class you attended? If so, glad to see you are getting the hang of it!

      • jhoran

        Your item is 2.99. Your total for q's is 3.00. That means there is an overage of 1 cent. In order for the plan to work, you need to give them the manu. q first, then the wag. q, because the register will have no choice but to accept the wags. q. I would like to suggest that you should do deals like this when you need to buy something at the store, instead of just going in for free stuff – makes it a little easier when dealing with coupon overage.

        • sharon60

          That makes total sense.  I appreciate your help.  Thanks!


    • Mom2Ryley

      Today when I went, the Natural Instincts was NOT printing the RR. The manager confirmed I had the right product and could never get it to print, so he gave me $2 cash :) Also, the .50 snack size bag of cheetos is ringing up .35, so they could make for a good filler item.

    • Sindie

      I bought $15 in Nivea products today then used my coupons. The RR did not print. The manager said the registers had been changed so that you have to spend the required amount “after” coupons.

      • pharmSCgirl

        This isn't so! I did the deal, spend $10 on any participating items (swiffer, febreeze, mr. clean, etc.) and get $2 RR. My total after coupons was $8 and that was for 1 swiffer sweeper wet refill, 1 dry refill, and 1 mr. clean magic eraser as well as, 4 newspapers, irish springs shower gel, and infusium 23 shampoo. I don't think they know what they are really talking about.

      • hollystewy

        The exact same thing happened to me today with the NIvea products. I had to call b/c I did not even realize it until I got home. She said she would have me a $5RR at the from register. Will pick it up tomorrow. She said she did not know why it did not print other than maybe I used too many coupons then payed with the RR from last week.

      • jhoran

        Some of the stores did not have up tags that showed the 20% off, so you would have had to figure that out yourself. If you just calculated the deal by the regular price, the register would go by the 20% off and this would make your purchase short of the 15.00 required to get the RR's

    • Jackie Moore

      I hope someone can help me. I am knew to all this. I just went to Walgreens to purchase Natural Instinct Hair Color and had a $2 coupon along with a $2 RR. I was not allowed to use both. Why? The manager was rather abrupt and rude…..this is why I will continue to shop at CVS

      • ivegotcutekids

        At Walgreens you can only use one coupon per item. A register reward is treated like a coupon, so if you have one product and two coupons, the register will beep to deny the extra coupon. To avoid this, purchase something small as a “filler” item, like the Scotch tape that is 39 cents, or a piece of candy that is on clearance. That way, you will have two items for the two coupons. Can be pretty confusing until you get the hang of it.

        • Jackie Moore

          Gosh, wish I had realized that, but I have learned a lesson. I wish the manager had been nice enough to tell me that. Thank you for your response, I appreciate the help.

      • LeAnnaShaw

        That is the difference w/ cvs…you can have 20 coupons…including ecb's and they do not require a filler item! I am so happy w/ my CVS. Today I went in and the manager noticed me w/ my 'coupon binder'. At first I was like…'oh no…is he going to give me bad news?' but he came up just gushed over my 'organization'. Then he went in the back and came out w/ the next two upcoming weeks adds! He said…'this may help you plan' I could have kissed him!!! WOW! Then when I went to the register to check out-one of the Ass.t managers said 'oh you are the famous coupon lady' LOL. With as cruddy as I feel I get treated for using coupons…it was SOOOOO nice to actually have people(managers at that!) be happy for me and helpful!!! We are getting Walgreens in our area-but they will NOT get my business if they are not nice!!!

        • curliegirlie85

          Its funny, I guess it all depends where you are, because we have 3 CVSs in a 3 mile span and they're all rude. So I've always been a wags shopper. Now I work there. So they BETTER be nice to you!

    • ivegotcutekids

      Went to Walgreens today and in addition to the register reward that printed was a coupon for a free pack of Always pads 18 ct.

      • pharmSCgirl

        I got the same coupon last night! I love getting more than expected.

    • Kristen

      I just got 6 packs of Bic razors- 3 soleil and 3 comfort plus for $0.49 each!!! I had register rewards, then I used the $3 Q for each that was in the paper today! And of course, I had to get a filler item!!

    • KrisAllen

      Like many others, my RR on Irish Spring did not print. I bought 2 Lindsay Olives and 1 Irish Spring. Used 2 coupons for Olives, 1 $.50 off Irish Spring. The manager came up and refunded the irish spring, then rang it again and it still did not print. He ended up just modifying the price to 99 cents and returning me $2. In the end I spent $.50 on the 3 items! The body wash alone and I'd have saved 90%!

    • bravo375

      Great stock up week at WAGS! Got 4 Old Spice Deodorants, 2 Gillette body washes, and one Old Spice body wash for free! And I didn't use any RR! All I had to buy was one Old Spice body wash! Coupons took care of the rest!

      • couponbug

        so how did you do that?

      • kbribelin

        can you tag the coupons needed?

    • I got an error message and got redirected for the Enfamil coupon. Any suggestions?

    • melsmayhem

      I am excited about the $3.99 sale on Bic Soleil and Flex4 multipacks. Without RRs and using the $3 coupon in last week's paper, this comes up to 99 cents OOP. A pretty decent price on these.

    • Question about the Walgreen's deals: I have a coupon for $4 off of 2 Gillette Body Washes and also a B1G1 coupon for Gillette Body Wash….Will Walgreen's let me use them both? This would be an awesome deal if so, because the Gillette Body Washes are 3.33 each this week.

      • jhoran

        No, but you will be able to use a q on the “buy one”. They won't let you put a q on the free one.

      • Ashley

        you can have as many q's as you do items. so the only way you can use both of those q's is if you bought 4 body washes and used 2 B1G1's and a $4 off 2. you've got 4 items and only 3 q's in this scenario, but the $4 off 2 is considered “2 coupons” since it requires you to buy 2.

    • char

      Can you use mft Q and still get the RR? I've tried the transaction suggestions, and the RR never come out.

    • tahsha

      Help me please!!!!! I have been printing qs for 2 years now without any issues. All of a sudden today, both computers are not printing them…..can someone please help me figure out why. When I click on a redplum q for example the “install coupon printer” page comes up which I obviously have done before…..however, I uninstalled it and then reinstalled it, and the message still keeps coming up and not printing. Also, when I click the “print coupon” button on a Bricks q a screen comes up wanting a zip code typed in…. I do this and then enter, and it acts like it's going to print with the little computer to printer bubble icon thing, but it does that for forever and never prints…..If this were just on one computer, I'd figure it was something with the computer, but since it's on both- I'm totally baffled, and I only know enough about computer to be dangerous. :) I need to go shopping tonight, and I can't print a single q! Oh, the horror! I have restarted both computers and tried on ie as well as ff, all with no luck- Please tell me that this is a simple fix that I am just to ignorant to know how to. (I am posting this in several comments sections hoping for a faster solution- please forgive me if you come across this several times.)

      • sehbug

        I can't print coupons if I am in Firefox browser. I have to be in Explorer browser for them to print. Don't know if that will help you but maybe it will.

      • meldeb3k

        This has happened to me if I am using anything but internet explorer. I prefer Chrome, but on some coupon sites, they are only compatible with IE. Hope this helps!

    • kjmiller

      I found a printable $3 mfr coupon for Claritin Non-drowsy and also spotted a $4 off store coupon in this week's store circular. Can I use both for one item? Seems like it should make it FREE (or close to it!). Thanks for your help. Katherine

      • jhoran

        Yes. You can stack store and manu. q at wags, cvs, and target.

      Where do you get the Women May All You Can???

      • LeAnnaShaw

        The ALL magazine is only available at Walmart. I would def suggest buying two! It is so worth it. I have found many many coupons in them! After I bought them full price, I decided to send away for the subcription-which has great coupons in it(different from the on stand)….I ordered two to come to the house. Can't wait!

    • Anonymous

      Extra bonus on Sure deodorant!: some of the women’s Sure were marked on the cap with a sticker that said “Try me FREE! http://www.trysurefree.com“. So in addition to the store q and manufacturers q, you can also get up to $2.99 back by mail in rebate! You do have to affix that actual sticker to your submission, so it won’t work unless you had a marked package. Money maker!

    • georgiaruth

      I am new to this couponing world and don't understand how walgreens works. I know that you can't use a RR and a manufact. coupon on one item. I tried to buy two boxes of cereal for the 2/ $5 with 2 RR back. I had a coupon for $1 off and then $3 RR but they wouldn't allow me to use both even though I had two items. Then I tried to buy the 2 packs of diapers to get the rewards back but again they wouldn't let me use the one diaper coupon I had along with the $3 off. They are always very rude about it and can't explain why they can't accept both.

      • Benjamin

        It must be something with the cereal, because I, too, had a puzzling encounter.

        I was intending on buying 4 items:
        2 Sure deodorants
        2 boxes of cereal

        I had 4 coupons:
        2 $1.50/1 coupons for Sure
        1 $1.50/2 coupon for Mini-Wheats
        1 $3 RR

        I was also going to use the Sure in-ad q.

        Either something was different about the in-ad q, or somehow, the cereal deal is weird, as if the two boxes counted as one. I ended up having to buy an 18 cent piece of Easter candy, which they still had out, in order to get my stuff. And to top it off, my RR for the cereal didn't print! (But the manager ended up giving me cash. :))

        • jhoran

          You figured it out yourself. The 1.50/2 attached itself to the 2 cereals, so that's why you had get a filler item. As for the mini-wheats, the ad states “on select cereals”. Its possible those were not the “select cereals” and that is why the RR did not print.

          • Benjamin

            Thanks! That makes sense…each item had a coupon attached to start with…it wasn't that the Wags in-ad q was different, which I had suspected (even though it did ring up as a MFGC). And the Mini-Wheats were labeled in my store as producing RR, but I'm glad I got cash back! :)

        • Care

          I've noticed that sometimes the in-ad coupon counts as one coupon, and sometimes it doesn't. I suppose it depends on whether it's a manu. or a store coupon.

    • Bella

      I think the walgreens register reward program has changed. I had the same problem with the cereal. I tried using only the register reward from last weeks deals and was NOT able to get the register reward back!! I have never had this problem in the past but it has happened every transaction this week!

    • Trisha

      any idea where the Clearblue Easy Coupons are?? I cannot find them ANYWHERE! Thanks!

    • meldeb3k

      I have a question on the RR's from Walgreens. Last week when I did my weekly shopping expedition and went to Wags., as I was checking out with all my coupons, etc.. the cashier told me that it's best not to use the RR's I already have to pay for stuff. She said if you do you won't get the RR's for your present purchase. I mean, I didn't know how to respond to this. She said save them for another trip, which is kind of lame, cuz then I don't feel as if I'm saving anything, especially if they expire before I can use them. Any insights here? Thanks.

      • cj

        What I have been told, and found to be true, is that if you use RR for the same product you received the RR for, you will not get more RR. (ie if you got RR for buying diapers last week, then came back & bought MORE diapers this week, then new RR would not print out for that item. Most RR say what company they came from (ie kimberly clark, etc.). So what you should do is use the RR from one brand company to buy items that will get you RR from another brand/company, then you can go back and use those 2nd RR to purchase items from the 1st brand/company. Hope this makes sense.

    • Bonnieabc

      I am having trouble at my WAGS- the manager says that if I use a coupon on an item with a register reward, I cannot get the register reward because I didn't pay “full price” for the item. I tested it out on the irish spring body wash – I used a coupon and the register reward wouldn't print.

      Has anyone encountered this?

      • Clara

        I had the same problem at one of the WAGS I went to last night. I had two $3 RR from precious trip and could not get the RR from one of my items and it was something I have never bought from there before and was told by the Mgr that you could not uses a RR to pay for items and get beck RR even if you you have to spend money out of pocket. I told him I have never had this problem before and he said that I should not have been able to do it. He said the IT guys are working to fix the issue so that you can't get RR back when you use RR. Guess I will be sticking to CVS since they seem to be the only ones with their act together.

    • Gail

      Has anyone else heard this? I was told by a cashier at Walgreens that Walgreens will no longer have their small monthly coupon booklets. Coming soon – all the coupons will only be placed in the Sundays weekly circular.

      On Saturday, May 8th, Roc Brilliance systems will be $49.99 – $10RR – $5 in store coupon (see beauty advisor) – $20 rebate makes it $14.99!!

    • Misty

      If you need make-up, they are having a great deal on Cover Girl items. Buy 1 Get 1 50% off.
      Their Eye liner 2pk and their single eye shadows are $2.99. There are 2 great coupons you can use also. RP 4/11 B1G1 and PG 5/2 $2.50/2.
      Buy 4 of either product @ $2.99 = $11.96 – $3.00 for 50% off deal = $8.96
      Use 2 B1G1 = $2.98
      Use 2 $2.50/2 = profit $2.02
      You will need to use filler items for the overage.
