There are tons of great Register Reward promotions this week at Walgreens! (Read about them in our weekly match-up.) If you’ve shopped at Walgreens for any length of time, you know it can be tricky to roll Register Rewards because of the need for filler items. Remember, if you want to use an item as a filler so you can use a Register Reward as payment, you cannot use a manufacturer coupon for that item. Your number of manufacturer coupons and Register Rewards used as payment must be equal to or less than the number of items you are purchasing. To read about how to shop at Walgreens, click here then click on the “Walgreens 101″ tab.

    At my local Walgreen’s they didn’t count their in ad coupon towards my total coupons, I’m not sure if this was a mistake or if it’s usual.  Example, purchased 3 items totaling 21.33, used 2 $10 RR and 2 in ad coupons for erasers and it went through. 

    • That is right. The in-ad coupons do not count toward your manufacturer coupons and Register Rewards. So if you purchased three items, you could even used three Register Rewards AND three in-ad Walgreens coupons and that would work. Does that make sense?

        Awesome, I have always wondered this also. Does this apply to all stores or just Walgreens?

        • All stores are slightly different. It’s a good idea to click on the “101″ tab on each store’s page and read about how to shop there. Walgreens is, in many ways, on of the trickiest places to shop because it requires some planning. But they have awesome deals!

    KCL or any of you awesome readers, when an item is on sale at Walgreens for 3.99 and I have a 4RR, do I need a .01 filler or can they adjust the RR down? I’ve been getting a filler for the past couple weeks I’ve been couponing at Walgreens and try to keep my OOP low, but it’d be awesome if I didn’t need that filler. TIA

    Does anyone here donate school supplies for kids in need? I never have before… but I’m curious if I need to write that off on my taxes? I have a little brother in 5th grade so I was planning to bring stuff to his school, but now there’s an ad on the radio saying bring your donations to our local mall…What would you suggest? Anyone have any advice? TIA!

    • Great questions! I love that you’re donating school supplies! I even saw a donation bin for school supplies at my local Walgreens. So many options for where to donate!

      I’m going to donate but haven’t thought about the write of of taxes…  I guess it will make a difference in your taxes if you donate a big quantity…  Not sure though…  :-/

        This has come up before and a CPA wrote in that you can only deduct the actual amount paid. The CPA said we cannot claim our freebies.

        I think that stinks.  We buy the papers, use our precious time to get the items, use our cars and gas to pick up the items, and then look for the places to donate our finds.  Oh well, that was what was noted previously.

          Just like I thought…  It will make a difference if we pay a lot of money and not after we use our Qs…  Oh well…  We can’t do anything about it…  Let’s not stress out… ;)
