Walgreens Extreme Couponing (Week of 5/6): $5.00 or Less


Welcome to this post where we will lay out some extreme couponing deals that will cost you about $5.00 each week! First, here’s everything you need to know about shopping at Walgreens:

Walgreens allows one manufacturer coupon and one store coupon per product. You may use Walgreen’s Register Rewards in addition to these coupons.  The Register Rewards print like a Catalina on a little machine near the cash register.  The most important thing to remember when coupon shopping at Walgreens is that you have to have as many items to purchase as you have coupons, including any Register Rewards you want to use.  We often use “filler” (cheap, extra items) so that we have enough items to purchase.

Before shopping at Walgreens, you might want to review the Walgreen’s How To Video. Walgreens is certainly the hardest drugstore to shop, but it has the best deals!  What I like most is that you can repeat the deals and get more product.  The limits are just one per transaction, so you can get more than one item–just don’t clear the shelves!!  Here’s a link to the coupon policy.

    is there a limit on the RR for the complete contact solution?  I know you can’t buy it, get the RR, use it to pay for another bottle in another transaction because you won’t get the RR.  But what if you broke it up into a few transactions?  I have 3 coupons.

       In my experience, it depends on the store.  I have 8 Wags all close by and have learned who to avoid.  Most cashiers and managers let me buy several of the same item in separate transactions, they just ask that I go to the beauty department register so I am not holding up the line.  I feel embarrassed taking more than 4 items of each RR offer at a time since we all know that when you’re rolling RR’s you’re getting the items for free minus the tax.  Anyway, I’ve encountered 3 managers who are strict and only allow one RR per item, per person, per day.  So, I think it just depends on the store manager…if one doesn’t let you, try another Wags.

      By the way, I do often get more than 4 of the same items with RR’s, I just space them out throughout the week and go to different Wags. :)

    The manager at my local Walgreen’s has decided that he will only allow one register rewards item per DAY per customer (NOT per transaction).  It doesn’t matter that this isn’t the Walgreen’s policy, he says that since he is the manager he can set his store policy.  (This really annoyed me during the tampon sale because it’s about 9 miles each way and they just said if I wanted to buy more then I’d have to come back the next day!!!  Is he truly allowed to do this?

      Hi Gayla,

      I had a similar experience a couple months ago.  In fact, I told the manager that I would hang on to the items and wait for my daughter and her boyfriend to meet me at the store so they could purchase the items.  I explained that we all lived in separate homes, so it would not go against “his” policy.  He stated that he would refuse to sell the items to any of us and kept the items.  Also, his store did not have the sale price or any indications that Register Rewards were available…I knew because of these blogs.  Anyway, I went home and wrote a detailed letter to Walgreen’s Corporate office, letting them know which Walgreen’s and the name of the manager.  I gave them a detailed description of what happened.  The very next day, which was a Monday, another Walgreens manager called me letting me know that Corporate notified him of the situation.  He apologized and let me know that the weekend manager will be “educated” on WG’s policies and reprimanded for his attitude.  I have even called Walgreens Corporate on the spot during the week days, and they took immediate action.  I don’t know if this is always the case, but contacting Corporate has worked well for me.  It has given me a bit of hardship now when I go in though.  One of the assistant managers I got in trouble, eyeballs me the entire time I’m in the store.

    My Walgreens has no Register Rewards this week.  What is going on with them?

    In regards to the Special K Bars, the coupon states that it is for $1.50/2 Protein Snack Bars.  Are those the bars on sale or is the coupon not correct for the product?

      Kristin, I haven’t laid hands on the coupon yet.  I will get it in the morning and will update as necessary.  Thanks for the heads up.

        If that coupon is a no-go, buy 2 Nutrigrain Bars and use $1.00/2 Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Cereal Bars, 8 ct. or larger, from RP 4/15 (exp 6/10.  It will make final scenarios $0.50 more but still a great deal!

    Where did the $28.00 Rebate come from? Or was that a typo?
