How to do Walgreens

Walgreens has no loyalty card that you have to use.
  • This is good, in that there are no limits on what people can buy.
  • This is bad though because there are no limits on what people can buy! ;-)

Register Rewards (RR)

Register Rewards are to Walgreens as ECBs are to CVS. The differences are as follows:
  1. Register Rewards cannot be used to pay for an identical item.
    For instance, if you buy Old Spice deodorant for $4.50 and get $4.50 RR, then turn around and repeat the transaction, paying with the new $4.50 RR, it will not print another. You can pay for another item that produces a RR, but never the same thing.

  2. At Walgreens, the RR counts as a manufacturer's coupon.
    So, if you purchase 5 items, use 5 coupons, and then try to pay with your RR, it will not let you because you have more coupons than you have items. The register will beep and tell the cashier that you are a huge coupon cheaterhead and that you're trying to pay with an extra coupon. The solution to silly problem is to simply throw in a small (25 cent-ish) item. This gives you the same number of items and coupons, thus allowing you to pay a few measly cents for your items. Yay!

  3. Register Rewards expire faster than ECBs.
    They're only good for 2 weeks.

Manufacturer Coupons

Walgreens accepts all manufacturer's coupons, including ones that are printed from legitimate sources on the internet

Store Coupons

Walgreens is much less generous with their store coupons than CVS, but they do have them. When you receive them, they will print out of the same machine as your Register Rewards. Store coupons can be stacked with manufacturer coupons for greater savings.

In-Ad Coupons

In-Ad coupons are coupons that are in the weekly flyer or in the Monthly Savings book. These, too, can be stacked with a manufacturer coupon. When using an in-ad coupon, always scan it before your manufacturer coupons. Then proceed as usual.
