Walgreen's- Wait Until Next Week

If you want to go to Walgreen's to wander and look- today may be a good day, but if you are looking to save big and get the deals of the week EASILY and in a SHORT AMOUNT of TIME- WAIT until at least tomorrow.

First let me say this- even though my Friday trip was LONG and THE CHECKOUT took FOREVER- It was all with a smile. Cashiers and Mgmt bent over backwards to price adjust, match sales to the penny and make sure RRS were printing like they should. The great news was that all of the national RRs seem to be working hastle free.

The sale paper that expires today was a nightmare, The coupons and deals were not programmed into their system. I cannot blame them- with only 48 hours, no local paper ad distribution and no papers in the store, I was the only fruit loop thus far to come armed with my own. The prices on the shelves are the ones that will ring up. They will bend over backwards to fix errors that YOU FIND, but it is a time consuming process. If there is a line of 12 people behind you- this will burst the coupon high bubble.

Remember there are bound to be issues, but small talk and smiles turn you into a favored customer. The cashiers will start to associate you with "The Nice Lady with all of the coupons that was so pleasant and waited so long". Be patient. Give Compliments. These new associates will learn that coupon users are friendly and they will continue to work with us, not against us. They also took my oreo coupon with no hastle (Free Oreos).

Walgreens Grand Opening

Ok- Coupon matchups are coming, but Walgreen's decided not to put out their sale paper or Feb. coupon packs. They do have some opening specials and I will outline some deals in this post, but I just cant tease you all with coupons you cannot get your hands on. The Pharmacy Staff reports that they will have the children's activity books (with hot Huggies coupons) monday. The Front end staff says they expect the feb. coupon packs to be on the shelves by Tuesday. They will put out weekly sale papers Sunday. You are guaranteed to find the sale paper in the Troy REcord and Albany Times union- I am buying multiples to get the P&G savings pack. Save the P&G pack for Rite Aid ($100 worth of product=$35 RA Gift Card, with BOGO coupons this will be super!!).

Coupon Policy
  • Stack 1 Wags Coupon and 1 Manufacturer coupon per item.
  • Max. Coupon rule. The computer will only take a certain # of coupons per order. If you stack 2 coupons per item, redeem register rewards, and add bonus store coupons this gets tricky. Lets say you buy 10 items...You can only give them 20 coupons...10 Wags coupons and 10 manufacturer coupons. (You do not have to give them multiple Wags coupons on same items, ie; use 1 coupon for 39c Candy, buy 4, the register will multiply the coupon x4). If you have RRs and want to pay with those you will need to add filler items. So you could add a few 10c items or 25c packs of gum. Then pay with your RRs or additional coupons.
  • Always check near the beauty counter for extra coupons.
  • RRs print out at the end of the transaction. Tonight I am going back to complete 2 deals and will have 2 transactions. I am going to buy 2 HUGE bags of Hershey miniatures (2/$10). I am going to use the $1 off feb coupon (sorry I dont have enough to share) and the $2/2 coupon from Last Sunday's insert. I will pay $7 OOP, but I will get a $5 RR= $1/HUGE BAG! I am going to use that RR to help pay for my second transaction. I am going to buy $20 worth of pepsico products (Doritos $2, use $1 couponx2= $4-2=$2OOP/$4 to RR, 3 12 pk pepsi/ $12= $12OOP& to $16 to RR, 4 2l Pepsi $5, use 4- 25C coupons= $3OOP/$21 to RR. After coupons this will cost me $17 OOP-$5 RR from 1st transaction= $12.00 OOP and I will get $10 in RR). Here is the trick I could do these both over and over, but you can never earn the same RR again if you pay with the RR you earned during the same deal. So buy candy and use it to buy PEPSI, Buy more Pepsi and use RR to pay for Candy. As long as you use your RR to pay for transactions that get OTHER deals you can wrap them over and over. You cannot buy $20 in Pepsi, pay with a RR from an earlier Pepsi and get another Pepsi RR.

I know it is more confusing than Rite Aid, but the kickbacks are instant. they are not in form of liquid cash, but if you play the weekly RR game with coupons you will be rewarded lavishly!!

Who wants to meet for a cadyville coupon clipper shopping trip? I am going later tonight and this is always much more fun in a group.

Remember- this is a new store with new employees and we get much farther by being friendly with our coupons than by being nuts! They were well staffed and service with a smile. I have never had a problem with Wags with a coupon. Drop me a line if you want to meet up for coupon sharing and deal hunting!!

Sunday Paper

This is a weekend you will not want to miss! I highly recommend buying at least 2 Troy Record and/or Albany Times Union Papers. P&G has their monthly coupon pack and it is loaded with BOGO coupons. Paired with store BOGO sales these coupons are sure to score many pairs of FREE products.

24 Hours Left

Walgreen's Opens Tomorrow, Friday!!! Pinch me. I have $12 in register rewards burning a hole in my pocket. This afternoon I will post a complete "shopping list" with coupon match ups. Why do I love Wags? Last weekend I was able to bring home $200 worth of groceries, cleaning supplies, 8 cases of soda, 8 packs of diapers and pull ups (Huggies), and 14 boxes of Huggies Wipes for less than $50 out of pocket. In 2 transactions I was able to rack up over $40 in register rewards. I love Rite Aid, but there is no wait time at Wags for rebates. The Catalina coupon machine spits out rebates in the form of register rewards at the end of every transaction.

More details to follow with corp. coupon policies! Happy Shopping!!
