Besides normal store sales, Walgreens has a couple of different types of deals to take advantage of:
1) Coupon Stacking - The EasySaver catalog and the weekly store fliers always include a number of store coupons which are good all month or all week, depending upon which flier they came from.
Since these are store coupons, they can be stacked with manufacturer's coupons. Often, you'll be able to get a really great bargain by stacking a store coupon, a manufacturer's coupon, and a store sale.
2) Register Rewards - The Register Rewards program is a program that Walgreens has that is similar to the CVS Extra Care Bucks Program. When you buy a certain item, you will get a printed coupon after you checkout called "Register Rewards", which you can use like cash on your next purchase. By adding on a store coupon and/or a manufacturer's coupon, you are often able to get the item for free or almost free after the Register Rewards.
The Register Rewards (RR) are not tied to a store card. Instead, they print out on a particular item for that week. Because of this, there is no limit on how many of one you can do. The only thing you cannot do is use the RR you earned on an item to purchase that item again. (to get another RR) You can buy as many of the item that has the RR being offered as long as they are on separate transactions.
1) You must have as many items as you have coupons. The computer is programmed not to accept any more coupons than you have items. So, make sure and tally up your items and coupons before you check out. The Register Rewards count as a coupon as do any of the store coupons, so count those, too. If you have more items than coupons, add on a few cheap items so that you have the same number of items as coupons. I always play it safe and try to have at least one more item than coupons. This just guarantees the register doesn't have issues.
2) In order to get your total down to the lowest amount possible and for the register to accept all of your coupons, the order you give your coupons in is very important. That's why it's important that you have as many items as coupons and that you hand your coupons over in the correct order.
Here's the best coupon order to present to the cashier:
-Register Rewards first
-Then manufacturer's coupons
-Then store coupons
I give my coupons to the cashier in batches split up in the groups mentioned above.
3) If for some reason they cannot get a coupon to go through, request that they void the item right then off of your order. Voiding it off is a very simple process.
