Walgreens deals for the week of 3/7

The match-ups this week took a little bit longer than I expected because we went out of town to visit my sister and her new baby. This is kind of a slow Walgreens week in my opinion, but there are still some deals to be found. There are some scenarios mixed in with the coupon match-ups and more at the end.

Some helpful tips:
*At Walgreens, you can use ONE manufacturer’s coupon and ONE store coupon per item

*At Walgreens, you cannot do a promotion more than once in a transaction and earn Register Rewards. (for example, if you buy 4 packages of Pampers, you will only earn RR for two)
*You also typically cannot use the Register Rewards earned from a promotion on the same promotion and earn Register Rewards again. For example, if you buy the Pampers and use the RR from that to buy another one, your RR will not print.

*Register Rewards are considered to be “manufacturer’s coupons” and you can only use one manufacturer’s coupon per item. You will have to add “filler” items. The in ad coupons often have good, inexpensive filler items. (there are LOTS of great filler items this week – check out the weekly match-ups for ideas)

*If you are using more than one RR in a transaction, always give the RR with the highest value FIRST. Sometimes strange things happen with coupons and taxes and even if you think you have planned out your scenario very well, you will end up with more overage than you planned for.

*If you are buying items that would result in a “free” item or “overage” when combining a store coupon and a manufacturer’s coupon, give the manufacturer’s coupon FIRST, and the store coupons LAST to avoid beeping/issues at the register! Make sure that you are purchasing enough items in your total transaction to “cover” the overage. You will not get cash back and you will have to add items to cover the overage or they will not take the coupon.

*If your Register Reward doesn’t print for some reason and you have fulfilled all of the obligations for the “deal” (including not using RR from the same parent company to pay) DO NOT let them tell you it is because you used coupons! Chances are they didn’t print because the catalina machine is not working. You have two choices: you can return your items and try again or you can contact the catalina company by doing the following:
*The store will give you a form to fill out and mail in to catalina
*Call 1-888-8coupon, option 3
*Use the online form to contact them: Contact Catalina Marketing (when I have tried contacting them this way, my results have not been very good….your best bet is to call)

  1. For your first scenario with the Crest rinse, the $2/1 coupon won't work. That coupon is for the larger size (off the top of my head I want to say it's for the 410ml or more) and the Crest rinse that's on sale is really small. I tried to do this last week and realized the coupon and the rinse didn't match up!

  2. sodbusters says:

    How did you get the $3RR on transaction 1?

  3. Mary – thanks for the heads up. I haven't even been to Wags yet this week and just go look at the coupon databases online (which usually don't list the specifics on sizes)

    Sodbusters ~ The post is reportedly producing a $3 RR when you buy 4 – I haven't tried it yet myself, though…
