    Kol - they were flat out wrong to refuse to let your hubby use the manufacturer's coupon and still get the RR. I would have asked for the manager. I suggest you call corporate today to relay your experience. Many (but not all) Walgreens stores have become increasingly more difficult when it comes to coupons. I am very disappointed to hear about your experience. I have used man. coupons a MILLION times on items that generate a RR and never had a problem. Crazy! What Walgreens refused to take the coupon?

  • kol78 Mar 26, 2010

    Don't know if this has happened to anybody else but just sent my hubby to Walgreens and he was told that he couldn't use the manufacturer coupons on the Huggies and get $5 reward. So on that deal you are better off going to most Walmarts where Huggies and Pampers are $8 and with the $3 off end up being $5, which is a great deal. Not the 1st time that I have been disappointed with Walgreens. :-(

    Sorry kab - some of those coupons are gone within minutes it seems!

  • kab Mar 22, 2010

    The Hunts coupons are gone...I was too late. Thanks for finding all the deals!

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Mar 21, 2010
