    At Walgreens Huggies are $7.99 and there are $2.50/1 printables that make them $5.49. There is also a $.75/1 clabber girl baking powder printable making them free after the 2/$1 in-ad coupon.

  • Oxymoron02 Nov 10, 2010

    There's a new VV coupon up for Rite Aid (as in it wasn't there a few days ago when I finished watching ALL of them) for the coupon book. Previously the coupon book was available free after you got a flu shot, but now you can watch a 30 second video and print a coupon for a free coupon book.

    No idea what is IN the coupon book, but it purports to have $100 worth of coupons in it. Going to go get mine tomorrow and check it out.

    I haven't been doing this long enough to know if adding new videos midmonth is normal for Rite Aid.....

  • Oxymoron02 Nov 10, 2010

    What really burns me with Walgreens is that they're going to get paid, so there's no reason except poor customer service to refuse taking a manufacturer's coupon that will make an item free. The argument that you should not be allowed an overage is poor IMO since they'll get $1 from the manufacturer for a $1 coupon whether they credit my bill $1 or less, but I could ACCEPT it if they'd take the Q and let me have the item for free while losing the overage.

    I avoid Walgreens for all but the most spectacular deals, and even then I have to have a plan to roll RRs TODAY to get a big bang for my buck because I'm not willing to look at them closely every week in hopes of a hassle-worthy deal to roll them later .... or risk letting them expire.

    The cashiers in CVS seem amused or impressed when I can roll ECBs and walk out with more than I came in with in ECBs, plus $30+ in merchandise, for a few pennies OOP. The Walgreens staff seems to think using coupons is just a way for us to rip them

    Does anyone know how a b1g1 coupon works when the item is on sale b1g1? I've had trouble with these and I have a few to be used up soon.

    I had a bunch of coupons to use at Walgreen's tonight. I looked around and found some Christmas paper sacks (needed for presents at work) 4/$1.00. I got some of them and I was able to use all of my coupons.

  • triplettk Nov 8, 2010

    I agree that couponing at Walgreen's is frustrating. Their actual policy (as printed on their register rewards) is that the number of coupons you're using cannot exceed the number of items you're buying. So, any item that has a store coupon and a mfr. coupon (like the toothbrushes this week) puts you over the limit. Or, if you try to use mfr. coupon on an item and a register reward (like for the razors this week, using a RR from last week), that counts as an additional coupon and puts you over the limit (no matter what your balance is on the order). I find that almost every time I go there, I have to BUY something extra just to be able to use all of my coupons (again, not for price, but for # of items). Luckily the store I go to most often has had .25 Reese's pumpkins by the register (which are now .10) but I know that's going away.

    I wonder if anyone else has figured out the best way to work this?

    I'm not much of a Walgreens shopper. I usually stick with Rite Aid and CVS. I stopped at Walgreens today on Rogers Rd. I picked up two Reach toothbrushes and 3 Listerine zeros. I used the store coupon on the Reach toothbrushes and on the Listerines in conjunction with my $1 mfg coupons for the Reach toothbruses and $2 mfg coupons for the Listerine. The cashier only let me use two of my Listerine mfg coupons and would not allow me to use the store coupon with the $1 mfg Reach coupons. She told me the register won't allow it b/c I was saving too much??? I had her void everything except the two Listerines that I was allowed to use my coupons on. I don't think I will be going back to that Walgreens!

    So..no free toothbrushes for me!

    Looks like Rite Aid will have to wait until tonight......

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Nov 8, 2010

    Thanks for the info on the peelies RCC! I'll have time to do Rite Aid soon.....

  • Oxymoron02 Nov 8, 2010

    Yes, the coupon kiosk is printing 5 off 15, which is great. We go through Zegerid (which is in the ad for $25 and on the required page to use the Q) and any heartburn stuff around here like candy. The Zegerid also had $5 off peelies, and I had a 5 off 30 Q CVS had emailed me (expired today) to use.

    Also heard some of the Noxzema has $2 off peelies, which would make them money makers, but I didn't look while I was there.
