Walgreens Fillers and How to Use Them:

The Walgreens cash register system will not allow the cashier to accept more manufacturer coupons than total items purchased in a single transaction. For example, if you are purchasing five items, using five manufacturer coupons and a Register Reward, the cash register will make an angry beep and reject the sixth coupon.  (A Register Reward is recognized by the computer system as a manufacturer coupon.) The solution: you'll need to purchase what we call a "filler" item.  This refers to any inexpensive product in the store that you add to your purchase so the register will accept that extra sixth coupon. This might be a small candy caramel ($0.39) or pencil ($0.05) near the register, or my personal favorite, an extra copy of the Sunday paper.  It doesn't matter what the product is or even what it costs.  You just need to ensure that you have at least as many items as manufacturer coupons.  Here's the equation: total number of Register Rewards+ total number of manufacturer coupons cannot exceed total number of products purchased.

The other time that will need to add a "filler" item to your transaction is when the amount of the Register Reward you're using to pay exceeds the total cost of your item(s). Even if you have more items in your transaction than coupons, if your subtotal is less than the amount of the Register Reward, the register will again make an angry beep. This is because Register Rewards cannot be used to pay sales tax or put your subtotal below $0.00.

And remember, Walgreens' in-ad coupons and Instant Value coupons do NOT count towards your coupon to item ratio.
