Walgreens 10/5 - 10/11

As I mentioned last week, I am starting to like Walgeens more and more. There are some rules to remember though. Lori got frustrated this weekend because one of the managers she dealt with didn't even know their own rules.

1) Never use more coupons than the number of items you have. For example if you are using a store coupon and a man. coupon on one item then you need to throw in a cheap filler item. You can't hand them 5 coupons and only buy 2 items. There register/computer will not let all the coupons scan that way. I know it sounds crazy, but it is corporate policy.
2) Register rewards are considered man. coupons as well.
3) you can only use one register reward per transaction. You can't stack them like ECB.
4) you can't use a register reward for an item to buy that same item and get another register reward. You can use other register rewards though.

As long as you follow these guidelines you shouldn't have any problems.


Crest toothpaste or Oral-B Indicator toothbrush
Sale price $1.99, use the $1.00/1 coupon from the easysaver catalog(at the front of the store)
Final Price=.99 cents

Shredded Cheddar Cheese 8 oz
sale price 2/$3.00

Glade Wisp Flameless Candle
Buy one for $5.99, Get $3.00 register reward
Use the $5.00/ 1 coupon
Final price= free + $2.00 overage.

Go here to Deal Seeking Mom to see all the deals she found at Walgreens and CVS this week with printable coupons.

Can you tell me where you get most of your coupons? I have gone to hot coupon world and coupon mom but they keep offering me the same coupons? I also buy two papers but where else can you get them and is there a group in our area that can be traded with??

I buy 4 to 5 newspapers every sunday. I also get the ALL You Magazine sold at Walmart. This mag. costs a little under $2.00 but has a lot of coupons. I also print coupons from or or other websites. I have also purchased coupons at I have been pleased with their service. You order and they send them out the next day. I do not know of any coupon trading groups.
