Walgreens Shopping List 5/13 – 5/19/12

If you’re new to Walgreens shopping, then learn how the Register Rewards program works and learn how to read this shopping list. Don’t forget that some other stores will accept Register Rewards like a manufacturer’s coupon. Also, it’s a good idea to print out Walgreens’ official coupon policy and keep it with you in case an issue comes up at checkout.

This is a starting list of deals for the week and is not a comprehensive list of every sale item and its coupons, but just the best deals (things at prices I’d actually pay). We will update this list as readers leave comments with bargains they found at their local store, we get emails with deal ideas or we read about other deals across the blogosphere. Items that are added throughout the week will be noted as NEW. Items whose final price changes as a result of a new or modified coupon scenario will be noted as UPDATED. At least once this week, we will send out a reminder to come back and check this list for the hottest new deals.

Walgreens is the one store where an advertised sale like “2/$4” usually requires you to buy two products. The first one rings at full price and the second product will ring at a lesser price to bring the total to $4, using our example. If you ever question whether you need to buy two to receive a sale price, ask the cashier to scan one item for you. If it rings at full price, then you know you need to buy two products. If it rings at the sale price, then you don’t.

  6. ab says

    Has anyone found the Good n Natural bars anywhere? I have a few coupons for a free bar, but can not find them anywhere. Thanks for any help.

  7. Carol says

    Found "try me free" rebate hangtags (up to $6.99) on Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel foaming facial wash, skin toner, etc, in the WG skin care aisle last week. These are new products, and I believe there's a limit of 1 rebate (I already sent one in).

  8. says

    Chris – Last I checked, the Fresh 'n' Fruity was not priced the same as the regular kids toothpaste, so that variety may not be included in this sale.

  9. Chris says

    ******** Keep an eye out for "try me free" mail-in-rebate hangtags on these!*****

    It's good for the Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist Starter Kits, up to $4.99. The hangtag is tied around the neck of the can by string.

    If you find them, it's a money-making deal after the MIR :)

  10. Julie says

    Just a reminder for those who use the coupons for Starbuck's Refreshers that allow you to get it for free: it will work this week – but if you want the RRs – you have to ring each one through as an individual transaction. I don't mind because they are literally paying me to shop!

  11. Wendy says

    How do you ask the person on the register to "adjust down the value?" My Walgreens store wouldn't take the $1.00 coupon because the item was $0.99.

  12. Saff says

    Today I was only allowed to use RR's that were less than or equal to $ of purchased items. This was in Northfield and I am curious if everywhere or unique. For example, I had a number of the $8 RR from last weeks contact solution. I was not allowed to use it when buying the nature relief and kotex because neither was over $8 (even though combined they were $8.98). I was bummed but not too upset because I knew I could use them at Cub. Anyone else experience this elsewhere?

    • JoAnna says

      I have never had that happen and hope I never do, Saff. Were you at a diff Walgreen's than your normal store? Did you ask for a manager?

      • Saff says

        I frequent many Walgreens in southern MN given that I live in the country. :) The cashier explained it was the new register/computer system and they only started that day. I hope it is not a policy change…looked on the website and did not see it. I may print out for my next trip. As luck would have it, my other purchases (reading glasses, sunglasses, and the first cleanse) were over $8 and all worked. I am hoping it was simply a misunderstanding at that store…I had my kids with me and did not want to deal with the manager again. They were also substituting click kotex for the sleek kotex and of course it rang up wrong price and did not spit out the RR. The manager was very kind and just gave me $6 cash to cover it!

        • JoAnna says

          On various coupon sites I have read comments about the new computer system–doesn't sound like a great deal and I hope it takes awhile for it to change at my stores. I used 3 RR today and one was $8–individually more than any item I bought.

  13. says

    Wendy – They should just be able to enter the coupon manually as a $0.99 coupon instead of $1. Some cashiers/managers may not be willing to do this. Their coupon policy states this:

    "In the event that any item's selling price is less than the value of the coupon, Walgreens will only accept the coupon in exchange for the selling price of the item. Coupon redemption can never exceed the selling price of an item and no cash back is ever provided in exchange for any coupons."

    This means that they should be able to adjust the value, but like I said, not all cashiers/managers will do this.

  14. says

    Saff – That's very odd and this is the first I've heard of this. Did the cashier just not accept your Register Reward or was there a problem with the computer system itself?

    • Saff says

      She verified on the computer screen that I had items high enough to cover each $8 RR (which I did in my first transaction) before she scanned them. I also had problems at Hastings last week with their new registers but they just forced them thru and none of us (me or cashiers/manager) understood what the problem was. I am beginning to think my situation in Northfield was a misunderstanding on their part and I will focus on that.

  15. jo says

    I used 2 of the $8 coupons from the Complete on a trip to Wags but was on Tuesday – no items were more than $8 that I did the transaction on – hmmmm don't like the sound of this – especially when high value items are free after RR and then have to use on a similar high value to get the register to take.

  16. V says

    I don't see the Jacks jerky listed in the actual ad…just wondering why it is listed in the match ups? Is that such a good price?? Mendards has it on sale for $2.99 for 3 oz I think; making it $1.99 or is that coupon ONLY good in Wags? I printed it and it looks like a regular manufacturer coupon to me. Thanks if any one can clarify it for me.

  17. says

    V – I think that the beef jerky bag that we added to the list was for a larger size than the 3 oz, so that's why it was added. I don't have access to the online ad anymore (it contains several more pages of deals than the print ad) so I don't know for certain, but that's my guess.
