Walgreens Show & Tell

by Kimberly on April 10, 2011

There wasn’t a whole lot I was able to get at Walgreens today because when I went to print some of the coupons that matched up they were no longer available. Yes…this happens to me too…and lots, unfortunately.  Below is a list of exactly what I bought, the order of the transactions, what coupons I used and total Spent and saved.

LINGO:
RR – Register Rewards (Walgreens Money that can be used IN Walgreens to purchase other items -excluding gift cards, dairy & prescriptions)
wyb – when you buy
IVC – Instant Value Coupon (either in Walgreens Ad or Monthly Coupon Booklet available in store by weekly ad)
**TIPS for shopping at Walgreens:**
1) Always give the cashier your MQ FIRST and Walgreens Coupons LAST
2) When buying multiple identical products offering RR, purchase them in SEPERATE transactions. (If you purchase more than 1 in a transaction you will only get 1 RR)
3) Do not use the RR you receive from a product to go towards the purchase price of another IDENTICAL product, as you will also not receive another RR. (Ex. If they’re offering a $5 RR for Pro-Glide Razors you will not want to use that $5RR towards another Pro-Glide Razor because you will NOT receive another RR. Purchase them in seperate transactions and use the RR for other items that are NOT identical)
4) RR can NOT be used towards the purchase of Dairy or Gift Cards
5) Remember you can never have more coupons than items at Walgreens, so grab something cheap (a ‘filler’) that is $0.50 or less to make up for any extra coupons
6) RR do have an expiration date on them, so make sure you use them before they expire.
7) “Profit” refers to you receiving more in RR than you spend. It does NOT mean you get cash back.
