Extreme Couponing Tip: Count Your Manufacturer Coupons at Walgreens
Walgreens has many rules and quirks, one of them being that the number of manufacturer coupons may not exceed the number of items in the transaction (i.e. to use 10 manufacturer coupons, you must be buying at least 10 items). Manufacturer coupons include Register Rewards but not store coupons. Store coupons include in-ad, monthly booklet, or W coupons from Sunday inserts.
Do a quick count of manufacturer coupons before you go to the register. If you’re off, add fillers — inexpensive items to up your item count. Great fillers include clearance items, individually wrapped caramels, pencils, gum packets, postcards, a Sunday newspaper, and milk or eggs.
