Wondering where to use your $5.00 off Olay, when you buy Secret Deodorant coupons from Sunday’s P&G coupon insert?  I’m gonna use mine this week at Walgreens; the register will deduct the entire $5 for every coupon, even if you buy the Olay bar packs.  Price on the Olay may vary by region.

Update: This post has been updated to show using only 4 coupons per transaction. Thanks to those of you who let us know the wording on the coupons limits us to 4 “like” coupons per transaction! You guys rock! ;)

Spend $30 or more Receive $10 Register Reward

Buy 5 Secret Deodorants, 2.6-2.7 oz $3.99
Buy 5 Olay soap, 2 ct $2.24

Use 4 $5.00/1 Olay wyb Secret from PG 10/31
Pay $11.15, Receive $10 Register Reward
Final Price: $1.15 or $0.12 each!

Thanks Common Sense with Money!

Come back and let us know if your store allows the overage!!

secret is on sale at Kroger for $1.97 as part of there 10 item mega event. so you could use those coupons there and get both the secret and the 2pack bars for FREE!

I just went to Walgreens and used $31 worth of coupons to get:

one full size secret, 3 trial secrets, 2 HUGE 20.2 oz olay body lotions, 2 gillette deodorants, 1 four pack olay bars, 1 2 pack olay bars,and 2 old spice body sprays.

I paid $7.61 after RR.

I then went to Jewel and got:

2 packs of mentos, 1 box of tampax tampons, 1 box of always pads, four boxes of kleenex, and eight bottles of fuze – all FREE.

I luv coupons!!!

ps I meant $5/1 secret/olay yes, it took the whole $5.00 off each time. so they gave me overage.

Reply

Well, I guess I didnt pay attention to the limit of 4 (has it been there in the past?) Here were my transactions:

1st transaction

3 Domino Brown Sugars @ .99 (limit was 3)
5 Secrets 3.99
1 Olay Lotion -Quencher @ 6.74
4 Olay Lotion- 8.4 oz @ 3.74

Used
Walgreens .49 in ad for sugar, -1.20
5 $3/1 Secret/Olay coupons
1 .50/2 domino sugar
Total $20.90
RR $10

2nd transaction

Toy Story3 DVD @ 17.99
(Got rain check for toy free with dvd purchase, worth 11.99)
Used RR $10
Total $9.25

Paid $30.15
I thought that was great 5 olay lotions, 5 secrets, 3 sugars, toy story dvd and toy. I was happy with that. I know I could have used another store’s Toy story deal, but I liked the extra toy Walgreens offered. And I was hoping for the Vicks RR, but they were out. that would have made it a much better deal!!

Bottom line… 5 coupons worked. but now I know it has a 4 coupon limit, is it cheating if they take them all? Just started couponing last month.

I used this today at Wal Mart. I got one secret for $3.77 and a two pack of Olay bars for $2.48. Total $6.25 -$5.00 coupon= $1.25. Not too bad! No trouble at all at checkout either. :)

Reply

i did this deal at walgreens..eventhough i spent $10 at the end after my 10 RW…i was happy i got 4 secret deodorants and 4 new olay 20.2 oz lotions( huge bottles)..normally these lotions are around 7 dollars..i use 4 $5 coupons and paid with the free RW i got from the sinex deal..

Reply

I just ent to walgreens and tried to use the $2.00 off coupon for any Gillette deodorant and they said if it doesn’t say Secret on it they can’t use it! They said a lady got fired doing it so to tell everybody you can get fired for doing that!

Reply

i tried to use it a walmart….. tried a trial size secret and 1 bar pack olay dumb dumbs told me i had to buy what was on the picture….. i fussed and put it all back but it worked fine at target!!!!!!

Reply

I used the buy 1 secret deodorant and get $5.00 off olay x2, $1 off any one olay body wash x1, and free old spice body spray when you buy 2 secret deodorant x1. All at Wal-Mart. I bought trial size deodorant @ $.97 x2, olay 2 bar pack @ $2.46 x 1, a body wash @ $5 x1. I stacked the coupons and also got the old spice body spray and then I had to get another item (cotton swabs) to as a freebie cause you actually make money on the deal. I paid $0.22. =)

Reply

I did the deal today with 5 body washes and 5 secret, but didn’t get the $10 RR. The manager said it was because I could only do it online. Can someone tell me what I should do now to try to get the $10 RR since the manager didn’t seem responsive that it could be done in store?

Reply

Since there are different ads in different regions of the u.s. i always check my area ad first to make sure the “deal” is valid in my area. If you are still sure you should have recieved a RR i would talk directly with that store manager. Coupons equal cash so the manager should help you or explain the problem. like maybe your total wasn’t quite $30. That happened to me one time where I was short by like $.07 so I didn’t get the RR. OR just return it all if its not worth it. Then they are losing out because like i said, coupons equal cash to the stores too, they get the money back

Reply

Tyana,
this happened to me too but the manager at the Wags I went to is really nice. He tried to help me figuring out why I didn’t get the $10RR and found out that I only spent $29 before tax (eventhough the after tax is more than $32), that’s why my $10RR didn’t print. So he returned all the stuff I bought 4 Deodorant @ 3.29, 4 Olay @3.96, I picked up 2 old spice with free coupon with buy 2 deodorant-paid nothing except tax. $10RR printed! So Happy!!
Check the price of the item you are buying- they are varies by stores.

Reply

I tried this today and didn’t get a $10 register reward. When I tried to talk to the manager they couldn’t find any where saying that you should get one. All we could find was that you get and extra 3000 bonus points. It is still a good deal but was confused about the RR.

Reply

You are in a test market for the walgreens loyalty card. They have slightly different ads. You get points where if you don’t live (or shop) in the test market you get register rewards.

Reply

That’s a bummer! I guess the 3000 points can be traded in for $7.50 in Walgreens certificates so I guess it’s close to the same.
BTW I used the coupon for the free OldSpice spray with the purchase of two secrets and it worked. So all in all, I still got a great deal.

Used my Coupon at Walmart in Monroe, Mi today:
1 Trial size Secret $.97
1 Olay Body Moisterizer w/Shimmering $5.88
Used 1 coupon 5.00off Olay w/secret purchase

Now I TOTALLY know why it’s important to buy multiple papers! I’m a KLC Virgin – started last week and this is FABULOUS, hope I catch on quicker. I thought I was frugual but YOU LADIES ROCK!
Thanks for the beginner tab 411 – soooo helpful.
They also honored the RITE-AID prices for the 50oz TIDE for $3.88. Had 1.00 off for that too! Stocked up!

Worked great for me! This is how I worked it

I used mine last night. I bout a travel size secret for $.99 and then bought a ribbons olay body wash for $3.24. I also had a $2 off coupon for Gillette deoderant that was on sale for $3.99 at Walgreens. After all of that I payed $1.72 for all three things. Does anyone one know a website where I can print out the coupons again. I don’t have another Sunday paper.

Reply

I used mine to get a huge bottle of Olay body wash ($7) and a travel size Secret ($1.49) at CVS. Got a $3 ECB which made them free and my local CVS ad had a coupon for $1 off any skin care item so I made .51 profit. Much easier than trying to play Walgreens’ games.

It worked for me to use the old spice coupons at walgreens!

Reply

I’m VERY frustrated. I just went into Walgreens to do the exact same scenario and didn’t get the $10 in RR back. When I talked to the manager he told me that it wouldn’t work because I used the coupons which dropped the price below the $30. Did I do something wrong??? Please help me :(

Reply

Same thing happened to me!!! I was SO mad and frustrated! UGHHHH!
ALMOST took everything back!

Reply

Lol! I almost did too. I was pretty upset :(

Reply

I have decided that I will ONLY go for the Walgreens Register Rewards if it is a ‘Buy a specific number of items and NOT a $$ amount’ that way I can use coupons and not have the whole thing backfire on me! :)

Reply

If you use a RR to help pay for a new transaction, the register will not issue you your new RRs. I learned this from a clever cashier who worked there. If you press the issue,they may go ahead and manually issue them to you anyway (I claimed dumb and didn’t tell them that I knew why they weren’t printing, I just asked where my new rewards were & they called the manager, who issued them to me manually).

Reply

I’ve never shopped the RR before. So my question is, is the $10 RR for a different transaction or is it used and applied to the current transaction? So pertaining to this scenario, am I paying oop $11.15 or $1.15 / $0.12? I’m going to assume I pay $11.15. Thanks for the help! :)

Couldnt you also use 2 of the “buy 2 secret deodorants get one old spice body spray free PG 10/31″ coupons with this deal ? that way your getting 2 free oldspice body sprays free making the cost per item .09c each?

Reply

This worked beautifully for me!! I took my $10 in RR and used it on their Bounce Dryer Bar/Tide Stain Release/Downy Promo to get all of that for $0 and $2 in RR. Thanks so much for this awesome tip!!

Reply

I thought you needed 30$ in deodorant not the olay so the 5 secrets wouldn’t add up to 30….am I missing something?

Reply

The Olay is a part of the $30 promo, too.

Reply

When Walgreens submits the $5.00 coupons for the Olay product to PG, even if the price of the item was lass than $5.00, they still get $5.00 plus .08 cents for the coupon so the store isn’t losing money, PG is the one losing the money. I have used my Olay coupons at CVS and RiteAid with no problems at all, no beeps. I haven’t been to Walgreens in a while and since today I’m not in a very good mood after an absolutely horrible experience at Rite Aid this morning, I think I’m going wait until tomorrow to go back out.
The cashier at Rite Aid failed to scan one of my coupons. When I told her about it, she called the manager who told me that the coupon did scan and told me that I would trying to cheat the store out of %5.00, told me I use the wrong coupons all the time and she is watching me. All the local Rite Aids have told me about the two women who try to use expired coupons and the coupons for the wrong products. They are Indian and I have olive skin so they confused me for one of those women. After basically calling me a thief in front of many customers, the “manager” finally figured out that she was wrong and the coupon didn’t come off. She gave me $5.00 back, at this coupon, I was so infuriated, I couldn’t stop crying which I usually don’t do. I called and emailed customer service so I’m waiting to hear their response. It is unbelievable how a manager feels she has the right to insult me just because I use coupons. However, I’m not one to back down or walk out of the store. At Acme, an employee was extremely rude to me about a year ago and they fired her. When I went to customer service, it was not the outcome that I wanted but they must have had more complaints and decided that she was a liability. I think because I stutter rather severely, people just assume that I have a mental disability and I can’t speak the language.

Sorry, a couple of my sentences have the wrong verbs and words on them, I guess I’m still upset about this issue.

You are a beautiful creation of gods, and I know your kindiness towards the employee that was fired showed great concern. Please don’t let others attitudes make you sad. After all carma always works negative to those who are negative. God Bless

So many people in the world are ignorant, and some of those ignorant people are jerks to boot! Sorry you had to deal with one of those people today — proud of you for sticking to your couponing guns!! I’d tell them the name of a few great couponing websites and encourage them to get smart and starting saving a ton of money, too! :)

I just went and did the scenario with no problem but, I Use 3 of the Secret and # of the Gillette $2.00 off. The total made it out to be $9.66.

Just did the deal as posted, with a little variant. 5 deodorant $3.99 3 2pk Olay soap $2.24, and 1 4pk Olay soap $3.74…Total $30.41 used 4 $5off coupons OOP $10.41 with $10 RR… Total $.41.

My Walgreens is really good about coupons. They let me use some coupons I had on Secret AND the $5.00 off one. I was going to do this with 2 deoderants and 2 oil of olay’s. I forgot to grab the 2nd Oil of Olay. However, they still took the $5 off my total order for that coupon. Because of my mess up I only got $5 in RR rewards but it was still worth it.

My only struggle is I can’t seem to use my RR. I know I can’t use more coupons than items I have. However, I had more items then coupons and my RR wouldn’t work. Can anyone explain this better to me?!

Reply

was your total less than the rr value? that is all i can think of if you and the correct number of coupons vs. items

Reply

Sara,
Your RR has to be equal or less than the amount before tax.
ie: your total is 5$ which $2 is tax, than you can use any RR that is $3 or less. This is how my Wag’s manager explained to me when I tried to use mine. Hope this make sense. If you leave in a state that there’s no tax – then there shouldn’t be a problem.

Reply

Yes Tisa that is how it works (I am a walgreens manager :)

Reply

When you count your items versus coupons the machine sometimes requires 2 items for one coupon so you may not have had enough items to use your RR. For instance, this coupon required the purchase of both Secret and Olay so even though you only had one coupon both items counted against it and you would still need an additional item in order to use the RR.

Reply

I did this today in UT. The register beeped – but the cashier pushed them through without saying anything. I got 5 deodorants at 3.99, 2 2 pack bars of soap at 2.46 and 2 body wash at 3.74 (my store was out of more soap) paid 12.08 OOP – $10 RR = 2.08 total

Reply

I did the deal just like it is posted but at my store the 2pk Olay soap was $2.46 not $2.24. Still got the $10 RR so I’m happy =)

Reply

I attempted the above scenario, but my Walgreens was out of 2-pks of Olay. So I got 5 Secrets, 3-2pks of and 2 bottles of bodywash (that cost 3.24/pc). The cashier didn’t even try scanning the coupon and promptly adjusted the coupons down, so I ended up paying 22.00 oop and got the 10.00 reward….not to happy about it!!!

Reply

I did the deal just as it was posted and it worked out perfectly. 5 deoderants, and 5 2pks of olay soap. I ended up MAKING $1.24. Thanks for doing everything you can to help us save a buck! (Even if some of them are long shots!)

After months of avoiding Walgreens because of their low inventory of sale items and the dreaded eye roll I would receive when I walk in with my binder, I decided to give them another try this morning. I found what I needed for the Secret and Olay deal. Their system accepted my coupons, no problem, but the Register Reward failed to print. The manager was called and she said that I didn’t receive the RR because I used manufacturer coupons in my transaction and that I had to spend $30 AFTER coupons. I went into their store because of the sale they advertised and they didn’t honor what the ad says. It’s dishonest. I called their corporate office to let them know what had happened, I’m still waiting for the official reply.

I did this in hillsboro oregon, we did not get the $10 RR we got 3000 points on my walgreens card. stll a good deal I paid: 5 X 2.99, for the Secret and the olay body soap was $3.74. I used (5) $5.00 off coupons, it came to $8.65, used my $2.60 RR I pd oop $6.05.

I took mine to walgreens and they did exactly what was posted. I ended up paying the 11 dollars. Thanks for the Info.

If I am thinking about this correctly u should be able to:

Use 4 buy one venus cartidge get one secret clinical free
Use 4 $5 off olay wyb secret
Use 2 buy 2 secret get 1 old spice body spray free

It all depends on the cashier. I have four local walgreens and they all handle the coupons differently. What won’t work at one will work a mile down the street. I figure it’s worth a shot, so thanks for posting.

Let us know how it goes for you Shari! ;) I am excited to get to Wags this week to try it out.

I used mine with a body wash and a trial size secret priced for $1 (which I had a 75 cent coupon for). I paid $2.25 + tax and got a $3 RR.

Still a MM!

I dont see a $3 RR deal in the ad for Olay and Secret, just the $10 RR WYB $30. Is it in the ad or on the shelf tag?

Reply

I think she talking about CVS not walgreen

Reply

I appreciated this idea to buy the $.99 trial size Secret. I only had one $5 off Q, so bought the trial size, and an Olay lotion that was 25% off ($3.74), so using the Q made it a $.27 MM. No RR….but wasn’t expecting one either.

Reply

There is NO WAY Walgreens is gonna let you get $5.00 off a $2.49 product! I can hear the register beeping now. Why would you even post something like this?????

Reply

Haha, I love how we are all so scared of the registers at Walgreens. We posted this deal because even if you don’t get overage- you are still getting FREE Olay and a $10 Reward for buying Secret! ;)

Reply

No beeps. (-: I think you could make the argument that the coupon is for 2 products which total more than $5.

Reply

you can’t use 5 pg coupons together, they say right on them “limit 4 like coupons per shopping trip”

Reply

I noticed that too! So I’m going to use 4 of the $5 off coupons and add a Cover Girl eye product, use the $1/1 coupon and end up paying $0.91 for all of it after the RR.

Reply

I Love this, thanks!

Can you use the Secret B2G1 Old Spice Spray coupon with the scenario?

Reply

I was wondering the same thing… though knowing Wags the answer is probably no.

Reply

I used the B2G1 q last night al walmart.

Reply

I can tell you there’s no way my Walgreens will allow this transaction. They’ll price adjust my $5.00 coupons down to the price of the Olay.

Reply

As they should.

Reply

Really, though, isn’t the coupon basically $5.00 off 2 items? So if you only bought 1 Olay and 1 Secret, the subtotal would be $6.23, use the $5.00 off coupon, and you’d pay $1.23.
