I’m not a HUGE Walgreens fan. I don’t really like the layout of the stores and their deals, usually, just aren’t as good as CVS. They have two different “rewards” type programs. One is the “Register Rewards” which is a coupon that prints out of the catalina machine that can be used like cash toward your next purchase. These are considered manufacturer’s coupons, though, which can present a challenge. For example, if you are buying Claritin you have a manufacturer’s coupon for Claritin, you would have to buy another item also to use your Register Reward (RR) because you can only use one manufacturer’s coupon per item. The other issue is that some Walgreens stores are limiting redemption to one Register Reward per transaction.
The other “rewards” program they have is the EasySaver Rebate program. At the front of the store, there are EasySaver catalogs which contain store coupons (which can be combined with manufacturer’s coupons) that you can use throughout the month. There are also specific rebate offers. They have an online rebate redemption program now which makes it pretty easy to submit your receipts and receive payment. You can choose payment by check or on a Walgreens gift card (if you choose the gift card, they add a 10% bonus).
Having said that, every now and then, Walgreens has some deals that are too good to pass up.
This week (through 8/2):
Trident gum is BOGO free – if you have the BOGO free coupons from the newspaper, you get free gum
The Walgreens TUFS trash bags are on sale BOGO ($4.99 is the sale price) this week. There is a Walgreens rebate for $5 WYB 2, so if you get 2, you can make .01. Be sure to check the Easysaver catalog to make sure you’re buying the right sizes. (In case you’re wondering about quality, we use these and they work great!)
Next week (8/3-8/9): there are other deals, but these are the ones that I found most appealing…to view the full listing and ad scans, click here:
Kellogg’s Cereal 4/$10 get $5 in RR = 4/$5
12-20oz Raisin Bran, Smart Start, Fruit Loops, Corn Pops, Special K or Frosted Flakes
6 or 8 packs Nutri-Grain bars
6 pack Special K Bars,Sandies Pecan Shortbread
Keebler Club Crackers 16oz
Kellogg’s Snacks 5/$10 get $5 in RR = 5/$5
8 pack Poptarts
9oz Cheez-It crackers
8 pack Rice Krispie Treats
Keebler Fudge Shoppe Fudge Stripe Cookies 11.5oz
*There will be several Kellogg’s coupons in the Sunday paper this week to help lower your expenses! There will also be a $10 Mail in Rebate when you purchase 10 Kellogg’s products. I read on one of the websites I like to visit that you have to purchase all 10 products in one transaction to do this rebate.
**The cereal and snacks are two separate promotions, so you should be able to earn a $5 RR for each set. If you do this deal again, don’t use the RR to pay for the same promotion or your new RR will not print (for example, don’t use your RR from the snacks to buy more snacks…use it to buy cereal). There are some good scenarios on the link to Hot Coupon World that I posted above to show you how to use your coupons to get the Mail in Rebate with the least out of pocket expenses.
FREE GLADE FABRIC AND AIR ODOR ELIMINATOR (this is pretty much like Febreze) – it is on sale for $2.99 this week. There is a Walgreens coupon for $1.50/1 in the Easysaver catalog and then you can print a coupon for $1.50/1 here:
If you have any 35 mm rolls of film sitting around waiting to be developed, you can also get them developed for free on Wednesday, 8/6 (the coupon will be in the ad)
Week of 8/10-8/16:
Here’s the link to the ad scans on Hot Coupon World:
Band-Aid Ultra~$3 RR WYB 2
There were $1/1 coupons in the inserts on 6/29. These band aids are about $2.99, so if you buy two of them and use two $1 off coupons, you will pay $3.98 and get a $3 RR back.
**People are reporting that this deal is working already, so it is probably a month long deal.
All laundry detergent will be on sale 2/$8. There are coupons for .50/1 and $1/1, so if you have two of them, you can get 2 things of detergent for $7 and you will get a $2 RR.
*People are reporting that this deal is working already, so it is probably a month long deal.
Always/Tampax products – 2/$6, receive a $1 RR when you buy 2
Crest toothpaste (once you start figuring out the drug store deals, you will be SWIMMING in toothpaste!) – it will be on sale 2/$5. There will be coupons in this week’s paper for .75/1. There is also a Walgreens rebate for $5 when you buy four. So, if you use 4 coupons and do the rebate, you end up paying $2 for 4 tubes of toothpaste. (There is still PLENTY of time to order your coupons through a coupon clipping service or ebay to do this deal!)
Campbell’s condensed soups – there is a Walgreens coupon making them 5/$4 (this is cheaper than you can get them at the grocery store by about .29/each)
Lysol toilet bowl cleaner – buy 1 @ $2.79, get one free. Lysol is my favorite toilet bowl cleaner, and I love to stock up when they have these sales! (don’t forget to use your manufacturer’s coupons…Walgreens will only let you use one manufacturer’s coupon on a BOGO because the second item rings up free, but it’s still a good deal to get two things of toilet cleaner for $2.29)
Bic pens – 2/$1 – there are printable coupons on Coupons.com for $1/2 and there will be coupons in this week’s paper as well for $1/2, so you can get free pens!
Bic Soleil razors – on sale for $5.99 – there is a coupon in the EasySaver catalog for $2 off and there is a printable $2 off coupon at the link below, so they are $1.99/each:
There is also a $3 off coupon in today’s paper, so if you have that it is .99/each!
Kleenex – there is an in-ad coupon for .89/each (limit 3). If you use the .50/3 coupon that was in last week’s paper, this is a good deal.
Glade Plug ins are on sale for $4.99. There was a $4 off coupon in last week’s paper and there is a $2 rebate from Walgreens, so you may $.99 if you buy these and do the rebate.
Axe products – on sale for $3.99/each – buy 3, get 1 movie ticket; buy 4, get 2 movie tickets
Aquafresh – BOGO ($2.19 for two) – there was a .75 coupon in the inserts recently
Scotch tape – on sale 2/$1
Disney dinnerware – $1 each
Disney cups – $2.99
MONTH LONG DEAL ~ CHEAP MOVIE TICKETS!!!
There is a promotion going on right now where you buy 4 Axe products, and you get a code for 2 free movie tickets. You can buy 4 Axe travel size body washes ($1.59 each) and the catalina coupon prints out. So, you get 2 movie tickets for $6.36. To check on locations, visit this link:
It looks like this deal is “dead” for now. Walgreens should be offering a promotion on full size bottles ($3.99/each) next week (buy 4, get 2 free movie tickets).
SCRUBBING BUBBLES ACTION SCRUBBER – MAKE MONEY
In the paper a few weeks ago, there was a mail in rebate form for the Scrubbing Bubbles Action Scrubber. It is also part of the Walgreens monthly rebates. So, if you do this, you will make money ($4.25) buying it.
Here’s how it works:
There is a printable coupon for $2.75/1 at ScrubbingBubbles.com
It retails for $5.49. Use the $2.75 coupon, then submit the Walgreens monthly rebate and the Mail in Rebate form. You will get $5.49 for the mail in rebate and $1.50 for the Walgreen’s rebate (make sure you enter this online before you send in the receipt for the mail in rebate form). Subtract out the $2.74 you paid for it initially and you still walk away with $4.25.
