Walgreens Extreme Couponing (Week of 7/22): $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.

    Was informed at my local Walgreen’s tonight in KY that you are only allowed to do 2 transactions now.  They have a sign posted. She said the sign has been up for 2 months, but I have never noticed it before.  She was nice enough to let me do 2 transactions, check out another customer, and then let me do my last one. Anyone else having this issue?

    I couldn’t use the $2 Summer Eve coupon on just 2 summer eve cleansing cloths.  the coupon wouldn’t scan and the manager said I could not use it since I was getting one for free.  I ended up buying 2 and got 2 free, used the $2 and basically paid $1.00 for each. 

    • Anonymous says:

      I did that exact transaction and had no problem using my coupon.  I have noticed that some of the coupons I print online have 2 different bar codes and only one of them works.  If the cashier scans the wrong bar code it will beep and not go through.  A CSM at Walmart actually showed this to me when I was having a problem there with coupons not scanning.  I need to review the coupon policy at WAG, but since my deal worked, the manager may be wrong about not being able to use the coupon with the Buy1/ get 1 offer.

      Copied from the WAG coupon policy as posted here on KCL:

      Buy One, Get One Free Coupons
      When items are featured in a Buy One, Get One Free promotion, up to two coupons can be used against the items being purchased, as long as the net price does not go below zero for the items being purchased.
      Sales tax must be paid for any Buy One, Get One Free coupon offers, if required by applicable state laws

    i have always had this question.. if i perform 3 transactions back to back and if i use the RR which was earned for the 1st transaction for the 2nd transaction wont they object???? 

    • Anonymous says:

      I have done this with no problems as long as the RR used is not for the same item.  For example, if you buy the Right Guard Deo in your first transaction and receive your RR you cannot use that RR to buy a Right Guard Deo in the second transaction.  If you buy toothpaste, for example, in the second transaction then you can use the RR you just earned from the Right Guard in transaction # one..

    does the summers eve show up on the ad? because i cant seem to find it

    • Anonymous says:

      Yes, in my ad it is on page 12 at the bottom.  Summer’s Eve seems to have changed their package design and may not be recognizable to you–I almost missed it as well.  It is next to the carefree in the ad.

        i think it might be regional then because it doesn’t show up where you mentioned, thanks though! i see that rite-aid also has them buy one get one free so i might just this deal there 

  5. Toledostarwife says:

    Thanks. So where is the Stayfree coupon???

  6. Toledostarwife says:

    What does the SS flyer have on the front? I got the RP coupons and the Pepsi coupons and then one with Steak and Shake on the front but it did not say Smart Source. I am asking because there was no Stayfree coupon in any of them and I was counting on that one to start my shopping this morning. I am in Ohio.

    • It’s got a Steak N Shake Add on the cover

    • Keriberri says:

       I have only noticed this recently…. if you look on the “spine” of the insert, it should have the date printed there.  It’s really really small and hard to see.  But this might help someone if they forget to mark the date on the front of the insert.  HTH

    Can you use the rewards with the coupons too?

    • Anonymous says:

       Yes, you can you as many Up rewards as you have, as long thy are over  taxes    ;-)

    • Samantha says:

      I don’t know about everyone else, but I can’t use them at my store with coupons because on the top of them, they say “Manufacturer’s Coupon” so they won’t combine them. I stopped shopping at Walgreens for this reason. You can use the +Up rewards at Rite Aid and the Extra Bucks at CVS with coupons though.

    It should be 1 the way it adds up on the scenario

  9. Vistor says:

    If you add $1.99 plus 4.99 then the total is $6.98

    • Anonymous says:

      Vistor, I believe you are mistaken as well…

      Transaction 1 Reads:Buy 2 Right Guard Total Defense 5 Antiperspirant/Deodorant, 2-4 oz $2.99. If you buy 2, that would cost 5.98; so the total would be 3.98, minus (2) 1.00/1 coupons, and if added to the other totals of 4.99. That would add up to: 8.97 for transaction 1; the same mistake seems to appear in Transaction 3 as well. My question again is, should it read buy 1 deodorant instead of 2, or buy both and the price needs to be adjusted on the scenario. Thanks!

    I have a question about transaction 1; should the scenario read to only buy 1 deodorant if the total is to be 6.98? Thanks!
