Walgreens Balance RewardsFAQ & Getting Started Shopping at Walgreens

If you are new to shopping at Walgreens you’ll want to familiarize yourself with their Register Reward program, the Balance Rewards program, Walgreens coupons and their coupon policy.  You can see the Walgreens Coupon Policy HERE.  Print it out and keep a copy in your coupon binder or coupon clutch. Have the address saved on your phone, iphone or on your ipad, whatever! Just have it ready at a moments notice! :-) If you haven’t shopped at Walgreens in a while, there were some recent changes to their policy (May 2014) that you can read about HERE.

Walgreens Balance Rewards Program
Walgreens has a new Balance Rewards shopper loyalty program as of September 2012. You can sign up for the card in store or on-line HERE. You will need to use your card or the phone number associated with your card to get the sale prices at Walgreens.

Balance Rewards PointsEarning Points
You earn points for making purchases on select items. The items that offer Balance Rewards points vary from week to week. These items will be noted in the Walgreens Weekly Ad. Some points offers are monthly and will be noted on signs in the store. You can also find all the Walgreens Monthly Offers on my Monthly Deals page.

Walgreens Balance Reward ActivityRedeeming Points 
When making a purchase you can choose to either redeem earned Points or continue saving Points to use on a future purchases. The more you allow points to accumulate the more points will be worth.

Each 1,000 Walgreens Balance Rewards points is equal to a $1 up until you reach 18,000 points. Once you reach 18,000 points the value of each point increases. So for example 18,000 points redeemed in one transaction will be worth $20 where 5,000 points redeemed in one transaction will be worth $5.

If you redeem points in a transaction you will not earn points on that same transactions. So, do not redeem points on a transaction where you should earn points. You can however redeem points on a transaction where you will earn Register Rewards. Points do not impact your Register Rewards and visa versa.

Screen Shot 2014-05-29 at 3.59.51 PMManufacturer’s coupons do not impact earning points. So for example if an offer is spend $15 and earn 3,000 points (like the Garnier offer pictured) you will need to hit the $15 before manufacturer’s coupons. Walgreens coupons however, do impact your amount. So you would need to reach $15 BEFORE manufacturer’s coupons but AFTER Walgreens coupons. This also applies to any special bonus offers like earn $5 in points when you spend $25 in store.

Redemption Dollars may not be used for the purchase of the following: dairy; liquor; tobacco; stamps; phone/pre-paid/gift cards; money order/transfers; transportation passes; charitable donations; prescriptions; pseudoephedrine or ephedrine products;immunizations, health tests or other healthcare items or services; Prescription Savings Club membership fee; Take Care Clinic services.

Cash back apps like Ibotta and Checkout51 can also be used in conjunction with manufacturer’s coupons, Walgreens coupons and Walgreens Balance Rewards deals. They are an excellent way to layer or stack even more savings when shopping at Walgreens. These allow you to easily earn cash back for purchasing items you were going to purchase anyway. You can learn more about Checkout51 HERE and more about Ibotta HERE.

Walgreens Balance RewardsWALGREENS BALANCE REWARDS TIPS

  • You can check your points on-line, using the mobile app or on the bottom of your receipts.
  • If you signed up on-line you can still attach your account to an actual card in the store.
  • If you pay with points you still will get your Register Rewards.
  • Do not pay with points for a transaction where you should earn more points. If you do this you will not earn additional points.
  • Manufacturer’s coupons do not interfere with any points earned.
  • Points earned show up on your receipt, making it easy to keep track!
  • If the points don’t show up, call Walgreens Balance Rewards customer service & they’ll be credited.

Screen Shot 2014-05-29 at 3.47.51 PMRegister Rewards (RR) are similar to Catalina coupons, they print out of the Catalina machine after you have purchased certain qualifying products. They are manufacturers coupons intended to be used only at Walgreens (even though I have heard of other stores accepting them). They are just another way for the manufacturers to incentivize shoppers to purchase their products. They are not Walgreens coupons they are actually manufacturer’s coupons.

They are cost effective for the manufacturer because they won’t have to pay on every one since many of them won’t be redeemed. For example if Crest is $3 and you get a $3 RR for purchasing one but never use the Register Reward, the manufacturer doesn’t have to pay the $3 on that Register Reward and you have purchased the item they wanted you to buy anyway.

Here are some basic FAQ about Register Rewards. If you have another question, leave a comment or e-mail and I’ll be sure to answer it and add it to the list!

Register RewardsHow do I get a Register Reward?

There are RR deals that vary weekly, others that only last for a few days (like a 4 day sale) and still other deals last all month long. I will post all of those deals here, either in the weekly ad or under “monthly deals”.

How long are Register Rewards valid?

Generally they are good for 2 weeks from the date they are issued. Occasionally I have received a RR that was good for only 1 week. That is why you’ll want to learn how to best “roll” your register rewards.

What does “rolling” mean?

Rolling is using RR you received from buying one item or group of items, to purchase other items that give RR. So for example if Crest is $3 giving a $3 RR and Glade is $3 giving a RR then I can use the Crest to pay for Glade, Glade to pay for Crest and I can just go on “rolling”. The other benefit of “rolling” is you can extend the expiration date of a RR, giving you more time to use it towards something that you need.

Can I use a RR I received from one item to buy another of the same item?

You can but then another RR will not print. So if you want 4 Crest in the example above you are better off rolling into Glade and then using the Glade RR to buy another Crest. You could then get the 4 Crest you need. If you use the Crest $3 RR to buy another Crest another RR would not print out.

Pepsi Register RewardHow do I know the RR is from buying a specific item just by looking at it?

Each RR will tell you what manufacturer it’s from. In the Crest example the RR would say Proctor and Gamble or P&G on it. Each RR will tell you what company it came from. If you have 2 RR from the same company but they are for different amounts you can usually roll between them.

What does it mean when you say a RR or a product is “Rolling”?

If a RR is rolling, it means it’s rolling on itself. So for example let’s say the Gillette razor RR is for $4, if it’s rolling it’s allowing you to buy another Gillette using the Gillette $4 RR and it’s producing another RR. This is unusual but occasionally it happens.

How many RR can I use in one transaction?

You can’t use more coupons in a transaction at Wags then you have items. RR are considered coupons. So if I’m buying 5 items I can only use 5 coupons or RR combined. Wags Qs don’t count towards that total.

What are fillers?

Fillers are inexpensive items that you buy so you can use more RR. So if I have 5 items I want to buy and 5 manufacturers coupons (MQ) that I want to use but I want to pay my balance with several RR I will need to get some fillers (usually items under $.50) for each RR I want to use.

Can I use a RR and a Wags Q on one item?

Yes, you can. You can stack a manufacturer coupon or a Register Reward and a Wags Q on the same item.

Is there an order in which I should hand in my RR?

I have found that the most important thing is to hand in your Wags Qs after your MQs. So MQs are always first, then RR, then Wags Qs. I have also handed in my MQ, then Wags Qs and then RR and that will work too. What you NEVER want to do is hand in your Wags Qs first!

What if my Register Reward doesn’t print?

Check out my post HERE for some tips on what to do if your Register Reward doesn’t print.

Hi! In the past I’ve used a coupon here and there, but I’m just now getting serious about it and I love Walgreens! One question I do have, why should you never hand in Walgreens Coupons first? This is what I’ve been doing but it has worked out the same or am I missing something?
Thanks!

as a Wag Employee sometimes by turning in the walgreens coupon in first it wont ring in the second.. also on rare occasion you can have a item for say.. 5.99 and scan a 3$ coupon .. then a Wag coupon making it 2.99 and then you just just earned a penny :)

Monica January 28, 2011 at 7:28 pm

Is there anywhere in the Walgreens Coupon policy that states that I cannot separate my transactions to use a RR towards the next purchase? I had a manager tell me that today. I told him he was wrong and that I would bring him in a copy of HIS coupon policy next time I shop there. I just want to make sure I am right…

Reply

Christie January 28, 2011 at 9:35 pm

Nope, it doesn’t say anything about not being able to breaking up transactions in the coupon policy.

Reply

s March 10, 2013 at 3:32 am

There is NOTHING in our policy that stops you.. Though Allow me to suggest you try seeing if you can check out through the cosmetics register so not to tie up the main cashier.. it normally pleases the managers more.

Monica January 28, 2011 at 11:08 pm

Thank you! I LOVE this site! He tried to tell me it was fraud and theft prevention…lol He was just trying to use big words :) The cashier kept doing my transactions and rolled her eyes at him and said he is a jerk lol Going back with my multiple transactions…:)

Tisha February 1, 2013 at 10:18 am

As an employee of Walgreens I must tell you that our store policy limits customers to TWO transactions in one visit, and that is completely up to the manager/cashier on duty depending on the customers in line.
So while you are able to break up your transactions into two separate ones to accommodate your coupons it will entirely depend on the amount of customers and the workload at the time on management and cashiers.
I love using coupons as well so understand your frustration however I also understand Walgreens side as I deal with couponers all the time, we must try to accommodate all customers in a timely and effective manor so allowing one customer to have multiple transactions is not fair to other customers in line.
What I do if at the cash register and have someone wanting to do multiple transactions and there is a line, I politely ask them if they would be willing to get back into line for the next transaction, that way I keep the line moving and satisfy all customers and most of my couponers are happy to do it :) Hope this helps you a little and have a great day!

“As an employee of Walgreens I must tell you that our store policy limits customers to TWO transactions in one visit”

COuponers, pls. be considerate of other customers. You are NOT the only customer these people have to cater to. Tisha, thank you for politely asking couponers with several transactions to get back in line if there’s a long wait. However, I think I’m a bit confused with how you worded your statement. How can a store limit the # of transaction one can make? I agree with couponers going back in line, but limiting the transactions per visit and employess having the say whether customer may do more than 2 in a visit? I don’t believe this is true. If you are doing this, corporate must know about this because you are then limiting the potential sales of the store.

Just had a FREE shopping trip to my local Walgreens, spent $20 but got $20 in RR’s!!! My question is do the stores offer rain checks on items offering RR’s? Asked for one on the Arnicare and the lady at the register told me that they didn’t, and I didn’t see it on their coupon policy or your website. Thank you for helping me save money!!!

Reply

WAG Mgr May 26, 2011 at 12:56 am

We cannot offer rainchecks on register rewards. We do however offer a raincheck on the sale price of an item but the register rewards are a time sensitive offer from the manufacturer and we cannot print them manually after the offer has expired.

Reply

amy February 5, 2011 at 2:56 pm

I had a walgreens give me a raincheck on the finish when it was 1.99 after RR and they just put on it that the finish was 1.99. I have had no trouble, thank goodness, with any of the walgreens in my area. I have been to 5 different ones.

Reply

Kim February 10, 2011 at 12:01 pm

Amy-Thank you, I didn’t think it was a policy because the checkout lady rolled her eyes at me when I put all my items on the counter and she saw my coupons!

Reply

Tisha February 1, 2013 at 10:22 am

Walgreens does not give rainchecks for the RR, if a cashier did this she was in the wrong. A RR is TIME SENSITIVE just like a MFQ and must be used as such, please be aware of this as doing anything else is basically theft.

Reply

MICHAEL June 23, 2013 at 12:43 pm

I believe I did get the register rewards from a raincheck.

But only if they got the item back in stock that same week as the RR’s are given out.

I have two questions. First..the walgreens is selling Lysol toilet bowl cleaner for BOGO . I have coupons that say 1.00 off two lysol tb cleaners. can I use these and if so how do I. second … the other day I went to buy Nivea lipgloss . they were bogo50%off.I had coupons bogo free. she said I couldn’t use the coupons . Was that right? tx for your help.

Reply

Cathy April 3, 2011 at 4:19 pm

I have found that whenever they do BOGO, if you have a BOGO coupon it ends up being free. I have never had a cashier tell me any different. Because technically it does cancel itself out.

Reply

Donna February 24, 2011 at 6:13 pm

@Deanna….I bought 2 Lysol toilet bowl cleaners ($2.99 each)and 2 Lysol wipes ($3.69 each). At the bottom of my receipt it’s printed both items free (3.69-free and 2.99- free) and it shows that it took $1.00 off each item so the bowl cleaner was $1.99 and wipes were $2.69. I didn’t try the Nivea lipgloss yet but I will try it today or this weekend and let you know how it goes. I think you were supposed to get one free and pay 50% off the second one but not too sure. Hope this helped.

I have a similar question too. Wags feminine products are on sale BOGO50% off. I have a Always coupon for $2/1 and a Tampax coupon $2/1, can I use both coupons if I buy one Tampax and one Always?
Also they have the men’s body wash BOGO50% off and I have 2 coupons for BOGOfree for OldSpice and Gilette. If I buy one gillete and use my coupon then buy an old spice at 50% off and use the old spice coupon will I end up with a free gillette body wash, a free oldspice body wash, one gillette body wash at full price and the oldspice at 50%??

Does Walgreens let you special order items? And can you get a raincheck on an item that has a RR? I have a HUGE problem with a shelf clearer here…. I actually saw her the other day (with her basket full and she cleared out pretty much everything) and I must add she was RUDE to the cashier. I just don’t want to order extra coupons to go in and there be nothing left. Thanks! :)

New to the monthly savings book….all the Instant Value Coupns say ‘Limit one coupon per customer per offer’. Now if I want to buy more than one of a certain product (Sensodyne toothphaste), will the coupon be good for ALL the toothpastes that I buy? Or will I have to do seperate transactions for each one I buy? I want to buy two tubes, and I have two MQ, and the IVC is for $1 off.

I’ve never shopped at Walgreens (I don’t have one close to me), but I want to share the deals with others who do. Just for clarification… Is a RR considered a MC? If I already have a RR from a previous transaction, and I want to use it to buy, say, Crest toothpaste, does that mean I can’t also use a Sunday coupon for Crest, too? TIA : ).

WAG Mgr May 26, 2011 at 1:09 am

The sales should be active by 12:30am. When u go into the store just ask the mgr if the ad is active yet. If it isn’t, sometimes the mgr can activate it manually if the system isn’t in downtime.

im really tryin to understand this RR thing. Are u saying, for the Cottonelle offer for example. that after the coupons the total is $7 and then after RR they are $2 each? but if i dont have any previous RR that i will technically be paying the $7? and then have the RRs for some other shopping trip? or do they printed off RR automatically reduce the price to $2 each?
~so confused.

Laura May 3, 2011 at 11:36 pm

I bought the same exact items this week. Here’s the deal as I understand it.
$10 ($5 sale price x2)
-2 ($1/1 in store Q x2)
-1 ($.50/1 MQ x2)
= $7 out of pocket expense
-3 (RR wyb 2) I think I also saw somewhere that it was $2 but wyb it prints out a $3 RR :)
=$4 (after all Q and RR which breaks it down to $2/ea)
Hope this helps!

Linda September 4, 2012 at 11:19 pm

Amber…If this is the first time you have shopped at Walgreens, then technically you would be paying $7.00. You can use the RR for your next shopping trip or some people will have more than one transaction to use the RR the same day.

Does anyone know….if there a limit to the number of RR’s you can get in one transaction when purchasing multiples of the same product?

Reply

Michelle April 30, 2011 at 9:27 pm

I’m pretty sure only the first one of each product will print a RR. You have to split each duplicate item into its own transaction. This works well if you can alternate with other items, so you can use the RR that just printed on the next transaction, keeping in mind you can’t use that RR to buy another of the same item.

Breakaway May 2, 2011 at 5:23 am

So, the in-ad coupon as I type this is 39cents for Scotch tape, limit 3… I want to use these as fillers but am confused abOut how they countthem for the item to coupon 1:1 ratio?? If I buy 3 will it count as 3 coupons since it is applied to all or is it only count as ONE towards the ratio because it is only one physical coupon or does it not count against me at all because it is a Wal Q?

Thanks

Reply

WAG Mgr May 26, 2011 at 1:15 am

WAG coupons do not count toasted the coupon to item ratio. That is strictly mfg coupons and RR. And any store that counts the WAG qpon is just being ridiculous. you should call the district office for that area or call the WAG customer service number.

Reply

Eve T May 3, 2011 at 2:11 pm

The Walgreens here in CA has a strict same number of items to same number of coupons policy, regardless if it is an In-Store Ad coupon, MQ, RR, etc. I read in their coupon policy that In-Store Ad coupons are not supposed to be counted, but the checkout register refuses to accept more coupons than the number of items.

Reply

Laura May 3, 2011 at 11:21 pm

Bummer :( I had something similiar happen to me the other day. I purchased 2 items and tried using 2 MQ and 2 store Q, but then also tried using a RR to purchase the items. Cashier said I needed to buy one more item, because my Q’s exceeded the number of items. Which I did, but used another store Q along with that one more item. So I guess store Q are NOT suppose to be counted unless it’s a RR. Hope the cashier tried to at least ring it up…at my store the cash register will reject it and give the cashier the reason.

Reply

Laura May 3, 2011 at 11:09 pm

Ok I’m aware that you can’t get more than one RR for multiple SAME items purchased, but what about if you purchase different items that offer RR’s. Will more than one RR print?

You should get back the full price before coupons because the store turns in thecoupons to the clearinghouse for reimbursement.

Just trying to see if I read the policy right…say they are offering $1 in RR on an item and you buy 5 items are they only going to give $1 in RR or will you get RRs for all 5 items? Just wondering it’s a bit cloudy.

That’s correct – One RR for all 5 if you buy them in the same transaction. You would need to split up the transactions.

The Monthly IVC books should be in store in the rack with the weekly ads. Each register should also have a book the cashier can scan. The coupons in these books are good for the month and you don’t need to rip them out, just have the cashier scan them, as the store does not have to turn them in.

I just did my first Walgreens coupon trip & made the mistake of taking my 3.5 yr old & 3 mo old. I couldn’t completely concentrate so I’m not sure if I got screwed or not. Plus I had a new cashier so she wasn’t sure what she was doing. Thankfully the manager came up. My question is when they have the b1g1 50% off does it automatically ring up at the register? I’m assuming it does, but I noticed my (2) neosporin & (2) J&J Red Cross items rang up same prices & I don’t see a 50% off anywhere on my receipt. Do they price it so when you add the two items together it comes out to a 50% savings? I’m confused.

Reply

WAG Mgr May 26, 2011 at 1:30 am

If you are buying something that us a b1g1 either free or 50%off it should say bglp next to the item on the receipt and then towards the end of your purchase should subtract your savings amount before the final total. Also there is a spot on the receipt where it tells u your total savings. If the items didn’t ring up properly take the items and the receipt back to the store on your next trip and the ad if you still have it and the mgr should do an exchange to re-ring your items properly.

WAG Mgr May 26, 2011 at 1:37 am

The redeeming of expired RR is at the store mgrs discretion. in my store, we will honor an expired register reward if it is not a mfg coupon and it has expired within the past few days. Ultimately because it’s a private WAG coupon and we aren’t losing out on the redemption money, it’s not a big deal to honor it and it’s simply excellent customer service. A smaller store that isn’t very busy may not do that as it hurts their profits.

Thanks for this blog. I love Wags too. I love to use my RR’s at Fred Meyer for my groceries. With my RR’s my last Freddy’s trip cost $3.36 for $75 worth of groceries, of course I had my MQ’s too. I’ve only been at this a month and my husband is happy because we finally have enough cereal and it’s the good stuff too.

You say that you can use 2 Mfr Qs on a B1G1 free offer, but I have never been able to do this at Walgreen’s. They will take 1 coupon, but they always say I cannot use a coupon on a Free item (manager at 1 Walgreen’s agreed). Yet you mention that this is possible in all your scenarios. How do you get this to work?

It depends on how the coupon is coded.

Walgreen’s official coupon policy says that you can use two MQs on BOGO offer so have them manually deduct the second MQs amount

I made some purchases at Walgreens today and had my 2 kids with me who had me distracted. I didn’t get one of my RR’s and it was for $5. I didn’t notice it until I got home. Is there something I can do to get my $5 RR? I live 25 miles away from that Walgreens and can’t just drive right over there.

I went yesterday and purchased (4) of the Sundown vitamins which were B1G1 and I had four coupons. I think the clerk neglected to scan one of the coupons, so I only got (3) taken off. I noticed it right away and was sent to the manager who very rudely told me that actually, I was supposed to only be able to use (2) coupons max. I went to my car and got my printed policy to show him the policy for B1G1 and he still disagreed with me. There was absolutely no convincing him. Am I missing something here? Do the managers have the authority to override corporate policy?

I was told on Tuesday by my local walgreens that they are under new district managment and we are going to be no longer allowed to use filler items such as the 10 cent laffy taffy. I asked what we will be able to use and how can they tell us what we can and cant buy and i got told they dont know. my kids happen to love the laffy taffy so i buy them every time i go there but now i will probably have issues doing that? Doesnt make any sense to me.

I had a problem using fillers at Walgreens today. Bought:
1 Rogaine $19.99 – $10/1 MQ
4 Nestle Candy $0.39 – (2) $0.50/2 MQ
My total after MQs was $10.55, tried to use 2 $5 RR from last week, but the register said something about coupon value exceeding item value.

Oddly enough, my husband ran a similar transaction:
1 Rogaine $19.99 – $10/1 MQ
3 Nestle Candy $0.39 – (1) $0.50/2 MQ, 1 B2G1 MQ
So, $10.27 after MQs. He tried to use a $10 RR and they wouldn’t let him either. So, he grabbed another Nestle and it went through fine.

I’m wondering if they’re attaching the $0.50/2 to BOTH candy bars and not “allowing” us to use other coupons (RR) on those items. I was planning on testing my theory with some Laffy Taffy tonight, but it sounds like I may just be out of luck. That would make me very upset since I have a bunch of RR from all of last week’s great deals!

Christie June 12, 2011 at 7:17 pm

Annie – The Nestle coupon is attaching to both items. You need another filler in there to use the RR.

Yes, however you do need as many items as you have Register Rewards. So if you have (2) $5 RR and you want to buy (1) $10 item it won’t work. However you can buy your $10 item and a $.10 item and you could then use both. :-)

I have also been told at one of the 5 store I frequent that there is a new coupon policy. Stores are suddenly taking the coupons out of my Infant Care Book, even though we’ve been allowed to use it several times previously. Other booklets (Answers/Summer Beauty, etc: which contain what they tell me is a manufacturer coupon, even though there are no numbers, or else the numbers don’t start with a 5..)I have to also tear out the coupons for plus cannot use a REAL MQ along with them.
This has become very frustrating! What is the real story?
*
Does each store have it’s own rules? (OK, well I do know that some stores here are limiting to one deal of the same type per person per day, but THAT they have posted at all registers) And if they do have their own rules, how do we find out? Cuz different cashiers at the same store do things differently, and how do we even know who is right?

I always give the cashier the in store coupons first, then the MQs and last the the RR, but yesterday I went shopping at the Wags I always shop at and the regular cashier made me use the RR first then the MQs and last the in store coupon.

wag mgr 47 June 19, 2011 at 11:25 pm

unfortunately, the coupon for $1/3 kelloggs cereal actually requires all 3 cereals and attaches the coupon to all three. the same for the $1/2 coupon…it attaches to both frosted flakes…so by the time you got to the 2 remaining RR coupons, there were no more items for the RR coupons to attach themselves to. so you still would have needed 2 filler items.

I hope I am not repeating someone else’s question, if so I apologize in advance. :) When there is a sale where you need to buy say $15 worth of a qualifying product to get the register reward, is that $15 before any coupons you have or after? And the very first question posted here about why you shouldn’t hand the cashier your WAG coupons first, why? My store insists that I give them first. Should I tell them no? I certaintly don’t want to make enemies with my cashiers because they are very uptight about the coupons to start with.

Reply

Jason July 31, 2011 at 8:10 pm

Most of my stores do not care about the order you give the coupons to us. It is simply easier for the cashier to ring the walgreens coupons first because they can be rung at anytime during the transaction without hitting extra buttons(also they may have coupon codes memorized and can key them in without the need to scan the coupon). Manufacturer coupons, however, require them to hit subtotal before ringing the coupon and again before continuing to ring other items or walgreens coupons. This is usually when you here the register start beeping alot because the cashier was too quick for the register to keep up and then they will need to clear error messages 3 or 4 times before they can continue.

Since Walgreen’s accepts a B1G1 and a .50/1 for only two items, does anyone know if they will also accept a 1.00/2 and .50/1 for only two items as well?

Reply

Jason July 31, 2011 at 7:57 pm

If your coupon says “save $1.00 on two”, those two items are required by the manufacturer for that 1 coupon. Thus you should count those 2 items together as 1 item. The register will not let you enter a second coupon for those 2 items. It beeps and tells the cashier “no item sold for coupon” or “exceeds limit”.

Someone asked this same question but i didn’t see an answer:

Their policy states that they will accept 1 MFG & 1 Walgreens coupon for each item, but most of the Walgreens coupons (from the coupon book) state in the fine print that they are MFG coupons good only at Walgreens. So my question is: Are they considered MFG or Walgreens coupons under their policy?

The reason I ask is I had one store tell me I couldn’t use the coupon book coupon with my mfg coupon because they were both mfg coupons.

In regards to the monthly coupon book being considered a manufacturer coupon I’ve had the same problem at my store. Christie gave me corporate phone number and I called them almost three weeks and had to call back two more times, each time I was told they were working on the question I had and that someone would call me. I finally received a call from the local store manager who said yes that corporate had changed the monthly booklet to manufacturer coupons if they start with 5000 and that only those starting with 2000 were a Wags q. I then asked him about their current ad for cottonelle that said you could stack the in store coupon (which is in the august booklet) with a q from the newspaper. He said it was a misprint but that he would honor it since it was in the ad. So this is where it stands for now I’m not sure what else to do. I’m hoping someone else might have more insight in regards to this issue.

Latoya, that is not true. You can do multiple transactions, right in a row, if you want. You can buy multiples of the same items and split them between your transactions. Print the coupon policy & take it with you, if you have to. A lot of Wags shoppers will intentionally check out at the beauty counter for this reason. It takes more time & often causes a line to build, if you check out at the main register(s). Sorry to hear you were misinformed!

Leslie December 10, 2011 at 3:08 am

I know this question has probably been answered a thousand times, but say you want to buy 10 of the same item that earns RR in one transaction, will you get 10 RR or only one per transaction? If that is the case, I would need to have 10 transactions to get 10 RR for that one item?

I know a couple cashiers that know what they’re doing so I’ll do the got2b deal with them when I see them, hopefully. I’m printing out the corporate policy to bring along, just in case.

Hi Christie, I had a bad experience at walgreens yesterday and I told myself, I always have a problem with this store. Here is the senario: I was trying that deal when you buy $15 worth of breakfast items you get $5 RR so I bought that breakfast biscuit Belvita for $6/2 ( took 4boxes which = to $12) then I bought that Withens $5/2 ( 2 boxes = $5) a total of $17.00 then I used 4 Q of $1.00 for Belvita and $1/2 for nebisco products for the 2 withens total coupons deducted was $5.00 makes my oop to $12.00, then when I payed my out of pocket, it didn’t printed out the RR of $5 and the manager said because I didn’t spend $15 because I used my coupons and that is not what I believe how it works. Please help me understand this situation, they are not being reasonable. I told the manager and the cashier, we based register rewards on the total amount of the products before coupons because from my point of view, the coupons were being payed by the manufacturers for us to get encouraged to buy their products and try it. May I know from your point of view how this works and if this is how your Walgreens coupon policy works? I would appreciate any clarifications or any words of wisdom that anyone could share, thanks and more power.

Valeria May 19, 2012 at 4:28 pm

I had the same thing happen a few weeks ago with Oreo cookies and I forced the manager to print me the RR because you are right the total needs to be BEFORE any MQs but AFTER store coupons. A few months ago. I did two separate transactions with Revlon buy $10 get 3RR deal. First transaction I paid under a dollar plus tax after MQs and got RR. Secon transation (different Revlon items but same deal) total was about $5 plus tax and RR didnt print. the manager tried to tell me its because of coupons but when I told him that the first time there wasnt a problem, he didnt know what to say and just force printed the RR. I really wish the Walgreen’s official coupon policy mentioned situations like this.

Ro May 13, 2012 at 7:47 am

How many manufacturer coupons can be used for multiple items? I understand that the total number of manufacturer coupons and register rewards cannot exceed the total number of items being purchased and for this reason one should add filler items to what is being purchased. But, is this only in order to be able to use a manufacturer coupon and a register reward on a single item or to be able to use as many manufacturer coupons as desired for an item / items?

In other words, is the purpose of the filler to use multiple register rewards (RR) or is it to use multiple multiple manufacturer coupons, or both.

For example, let’s say I am purchasing the following:

2 packs of Adult Diapers
3 pencils (fillers)
So, that’s 5 items

What here will work and not work:

5 Register Rewards?
OR
2 Manufacturer coupons and 3 Register Rewards?
OR
3 Manufacturer coupons ($1 off 1, $1 off 1, $1 off 2) and 2 Register Rewards?
OR
3 Manufacturer coupons ($1 off 1, $1 off 1, $1 off 1) and 2 Register Rewards?
OR
3 Manufacturer coupons ($1 off 1, $1 off 1, $1 off 1) and 2 Register Rewards?
OR
4 Manufacturer coupons ($1 off 1, $1 off 1, $1 off 1, and ($1 off 1 OR $1 off 2)) and 1 Register Rewards?
OR
5 Manufacturer coupons (No Register Rewards)

I would like to fully understand this because I thought I did and have been planning items to purchase with coupons and then they don’t go through at the register. It seems like the fillers are only to be able to use a Register Rewards with a coupon or to use multiple Register Rewards. Is this correct?

Or, another way of asking the question, excluding Register Rewards (RR), is it only one manufacturer coupon that can be used per item, regardless of the quantities purchased, and regardless of the number of filler items? I know it states this for one item in the coupon policy, but for multiple items it states “When purchasing multiple items, Walgreens accepts multiple identical coupons for multiple qualifying items…” which had me thinking that this could also mean multiple manufacturer coupons can be used for multiple items, even if the coupons exceeded the number of qualifying items being purchased and so long as the total number of items (fillers inclcuded) did not exceed the total number of coupons being used.

Looking forward to your responses.

Reply

Valeria May 19, 2012 at 4:20 pm

$1 off 1 equals 1MQ. $1 off 2 counts as 2 MQs. RR counts as 1 MQ. “Multiple identical coupons for multiple qualifying items” means you can, say, use 3 $1off 1 MQs for 3 products stated on those MQs. As long as those MQs don’t say something like “Limit one coupon per purchase per shopping trip”, which basically means you can buy ten of those items but you can only use one coupon in one transaction. I know its complicated :)

I usually write my grocery list on an envelope and I place the coupons I need inside. This technique helps when I am in line. Depending upon the transaction here are some examples of how I write out the list:
Lay’s Potato Chips 2/$4.00
(under the item I will list the coupons / RR that I can use)
1 – MC – 1/$1.00
1 – SC – $1.00
1 – IVC – $.50
RR $1.00

Also, at Walgreens I go to the checkout in the make-up department…not as busy.

Good luck!

Print the IVC (instant value coupons) from the Walgreens.com web site…go to coupons and search through the selection to find the IVC. These coupons state “IVC Good at Walgreens.” Now the problem of using a manufacturer’s coupon and a store coupon will not be an issue with the clerks!

The store I went to first said RRs can’t be used on photos. I pointed out photos weren’t listed in the exclusions, then the manager said they can’t be used because they are free. I mentioned that buy one get one free items can have coupons used for them if the total is higher than the coupons, but she maintained that the photos don’t count and directed me to find another item to purchase or not to use the RR.
Anyone know if this is policy, or just this store?

Do you mean that you were getting photos items at no charge because of a promotion in the ad? If your photo items were free, why are you using RRs on them? You can’t get cash on any coupons and if something is free already, then there’s nothing for the coupons to discount. If I misunderstood your question, I’m sorry.

It depends on the type of monthly coupon it is. If it’s a Walgreens coupon, it can be used with a manufacturer coupon and sometimes there are even weekly ad coupons for a product that also has a monthly Walgreens coupon, in which case, you can use 3 coupons on that product. Both of the Walgreens coupons and a manufacturer coupon (if one for that item exists). It doesn’t happen often but when it does, it’s fun!

Since you are starting newly, it can get very confusing. I have been there done that! You might want to find a time that is not so busy in your store and that is when you start trying out with small purchases until you get the mastery of your coupon planning. Couponing takes a lot of planning and mental alertness and note taking will help you. The savings are all worth the trouble though. Good luck.

I have been successfully couponing at Wag’s for 4 years, but we recently moved so I’m using a new location. Tonight, when I tried to use $1.00 Purex manufacturer coupons, the cashier informed me that Walgreen’s cannot accept any coupons that designate a ‘different’ retailer on them. (In this case, the coupon is a normal manufacturer internet coupon that says ‘redeemable at CVS’). I also could not use my $2.00 Clear Hair coupons for the same reason (‘redeemable at Dollar General’). I’ve never encountered a retailer that doesn’t accept manufacturer coupons. But the cashier insisted that Walgreen’s does not get reimbursed for manufacturer coupons that have a different retailer designee. Is this true? I have not called corporate, but would love to know the truth here. If this IS true, then lots and lots of retailers are screwing themselves out of money by accepting manufacturer coupons regardless of the retailer designee. But I don’t know why a manufacturer would care WHERE a customer purchases their product… they just want you to buy it, right? So, if my local Wag’s is off-base, I’d like to get the situation corrected so I can continue couponing at Wag’s in peace. (Plus, the cashier informed me that she turned away several other customers for the same reason, so a) this is affecting many people, and b) Wag’s is losing out on sales… does corporate really want this to be happening?)

I was able to use 2 sets (4 coupons) at two different Walgreens. The first set was used one week ago and the other set yesterday. Neither cashier questioned anything. It can be that your cashier / store is very particular about accepting coupons with other store’s logo. I highly doubt it’s a corporate thing; otherwise I would not have been able to use mine at either store.

You need to have at least $35.00 BEFORE tax to use your $10 coupon, that is why it says $10 off of $35 :)

One thing I learned last week… which really means “Duh! Silly me.”
You will not get BR if you pay using a Walgreen’s gift card. Per my conversation with Walgreens customer service… treat your gift card as cash but it is considered store credit when you make a purchase.

Reply

Kim February 3, 2013 at 9:48 am

With the Balance Rewards program, if I do the same deal more than once, will it get credited the second time? For example, there was a deal that you earned 10,000 points for the purchase of $30+ in Poise pads. I purchased enough to get the points. If I had another transaction for $30+ in Poise products, would I have gotten another 10,000 points?

I know you printed this 3 months ago and may never see this comment. For those of you who do, what Amy did is considered coupon fraud. You may drive home with your free product, but the cashier that accepted your coupons will get fired if she’s caught. I learned this the hard way. I was a cashier for Wag’s and was taught to accept the coupons if they went through the machine. We did it this way for two years running until one day, on my own personal transaction, I used Dawn Foam Q’s to buy regular Dawn detergent (which is what Amy did, same mfg. but wrong product). A week later, a guy came in from loss prevention and fired me. Wag’s went so far as to report the circumstances to the background check place and here we are four years later, I’ve been labeled a thief and haven’t been able to get a job since. So, do you think that it’s worth you saving a few dollars on deodorant if someone could lose their job? I hope not.

Walgreens has a new policy that states that the individual store managers can set a limit on “excessive household purchasing” (what that means is subjective and completely dependent on the store manager) much like Walmart does. If that’s the policy at that particular Walgreens, just find another store to shop at :)

I just transferred a load of prescriptions from Rite Aid to Walgreens to take advantage of their Balance Reward Program. Out of NINE different prescriptions I had filled in the last couple months only ONE gave me balance reward points. So much for their big ads touting “500 pts. for every prescription filled!! Think I’ll switch to Costco where most of my meds are a hell of a lot cheaper.

Hi! Love the website, very informative!! I’ve never shopped walgreens before, but I’m starting Wednesday, because it looks like they have awesome deals and I’ve just started extreme couponing a couple of moths ago. At any rate, my question is – it says above that you can “roll” with rr by buying 1 crest, then buying 1 glade, and so on. But on wags coupon policy it states “1 rr per customer, per transaction, per day”. So if I wanted to stock up on kotex and 7up (always a funny combination of items to buy when couponing lol) and kotex gives $2 rr and 7up gives $1 rr, would I be able to split up my transactions to continue getting rr and rolling? Or how would I do that?
Any advice is appreciated!! Thanks!!

I understant that with a RR you can only buy one item at a time to earn one RR, but with the poins system can you buy more than one. IE buy 2 potato chips and get 1,000 points. If I buy 4 bags at one time do I get 2,000 points? Thank you

I was wondering if you purchase items that are buy one get one half off and have a bogo coupon for that item how it the discount calculated? For example I got razors that were $9.49 so one was $9.49 so the second was $4.24 when they ran my coupon they gave me only a discount of $4.24. Is this correct?

The same thing happened to me today. Simple Face products were buy one get one half off. I had 4 man coupons for Buy a face wash or lotion and get free Makeup remover wipes. I purchased an expensive lotion and 3 face washes, and 4 make up remover wipes that would be free with the coupons. Since the wipes regular price is a few cents less than the wash, they all rang up 1/2 price. The cashier adjusted my coupons to the half price amount. Was that correct? If a BOGO coupon cancels out the price of an item in a BOGO deal, shouldn’t the same apply for a BOGO coupon and a buy one get one half off deal? Someone please explain

I am a bit disappointed in Walgreens, I was there this morning at 9 am and they are wiped out of Purex and the toothbrushes/toothpaste with the register rewards on sale. They said that someone came in yesterday and bought it all. Apparently, since the sale flyers comes out on a Saturday, they are now putting the new stuff on sale and available on Saturday around 1 p.m.

Also, regarding their register rewards, if you get a raincheck you forfeit the rewards because they cannot give you the rewards after the sale week. CVS will give the extra care bucks after the sale week, it’s indicated on their raincheck.

My question is items with a register rewards, is there a liimit, for example, the toothbrushes are 2/6.00 with 3.00 rewards, can you buy 4 and get 6.00 rewards?

Thanks, sorry to vent but I was so surprised when I heard about the Saturday early start on the weekly sale.

How many times can use use the wags coupon per transaction? (Can I get 2 or 3 of the deals with only one wags coupons?)

I am having hard time with Walgreens trying to get them to use both my coupons. The current suave deal buy 2 for 6 (Hawaii) it will only ring one coupon not both. They say they have to ring it separate to use both coupons because the register recognizes the 2 for 6 as 1 purchase, but then you don’t get the rewards or the 2 for 6 price. Question Does both just scan elsewhere or do they have to override it or something. I looked at there coupon policy and it does not seem to spell this out specifically even though I know everyone is doing it. any suggestions?? Thanks

When a Wags coupon from the monthly savings book says “Limit one coupon per customer per offer” does that mean you can only buy one? For example, in this month’s there is the $1 off 2 Lindt Lindor Truffles, so if I buy 4 total, will I get $2 off? Or would I need to do a separate transaction? TIA!

My closest Walgreens just refused to accept internet coupons. They said they had too much fraud and the clerk called the manager to confirm. This changed very recently since internet coupons worked fine just a few days ago. This doesn’t match the Walgreens coupon policy but I don’t know if it matters or if the local stores can make their own policy.

Reply

S.G. November 25, 2013 at 5:45 pm

I was told if purchasing multiple items of the same that had RR, I had to ring up every item separately because if I did them all together it would only spit out one RR instead of 6 (for example) for the 6 items I purchased.
I told the cashier to try it anyway and sure enough it only gave me one RR instead of one for each item of the same. She ended up refunding me everything and doing individual transactions for each.
Also, is it not true that you can reduce the value of your RR if you’re under ? I had owed $4.98 and had a RR for $5 but they couldn’t reduce the value for me. Is that only with MQ they can do that?

Today (12/7) I took advantage of the Colgate ToothPaste double dip
3/$9+3RR BOGO Free
I used (3) $2 RR (that I got from 3 Gillette shavers) to pay for the transaction.
From your FAQ’s under “What is rolling?” I understood that you can still get RR when you pay using RR as long as it is not for the same product.
Did I do something wrong? Or did I misunderstand?
Thank you in advance!

Would you get both items free??? Again this may be a silly question but I know that my fellow couponers will know the answer!!!!!

On the coupon it say’s Limit one coupon per purchase on product/quantity specified and maximum of two identical coupons allowed in same shopping trip. I tried to explain that I am buying 2 items and I says 1 coupon per purchase. She refused so I didn’t get the items. Am I wrong?? I had the same problem with the Nievea Lotions the week before.

Christie: This situation reflects my other email I sent to you, but the manager at the Walgreens tonite was adamant that the Walgreens corporate policy is that the amount for shoppers to get points has to be after manufacturing coupons, and This is Corporate Policy…while I don’t believe him, the points for the Schick promotion were not printing (5000 points off $20.00 purchase of Schick products.) He couldn’t come up with a policy, and I know this hasn’t been the case in the past, so time to revisit what truly is the Walgreens policy. I’m going to call in cuz I’m out 10,000 points since I did two transactions, each time purchasing $21 and using a $10.00 off coupon, and neither produced points. Boy, Walgreens need a updated policy on the program cuz this is not at all addressed in their Rules and Regulations….let’s all ask for more specifics in their policy so we don’t have to argue store by store.

I want to thank you for all the great deals. Recently the cashier told me that walgreens would no longer be accepting coupons that do not scan. We print out those coupons on our home printers from our home computers and the problem is we have no quality control. The maunufactor does not scan them before he pays you the face value plus .08 cents. So why are you refusing our home done coupons? This policy seems very unfair. We are just little nobody individuals trying to make our budget work and you are helping . So please do not refuse our coupons if they are not perfectly printed..

The cashier advised me that i could only use 1 coupon because the other coupon exceeded the amount of the other nail polish which was .84. Is that correct?

Jean May 1, 2014 at 11:57 pm

I did this exact deal, and they just adjusted the coupon so she is wrong, as this topics is discussed a lot on this site, and Christie always indicates when to get the clerk to adjust down the coupon. Many new clerks aren’t trained to do this, so sorry to say, but once again it is on the shoulder of consumers. Go back and have them redo the transaction. But legally, they have to write the adjusted number on their coupon, so they only get reimbursed the lower amount, otherwise Walgreens is getting a higher reimbursement then they gave you. Don’t take this from cashiers…ask for the adjustment down. I used the two coupons, and got two finger nail polishes free today, and they did the adjustment. My grocery store has a much smarter system and handles this automatically…A company like Walgreens should have much smarter computers.

Jean May 2, 2014 at 12:00 am

Edit…I may not have got the first fingernail polish free as I think it was like $1.39 (minus $1.00 coupon), then the second was 1/2 or .70 and that one I got free as the clear adjusted the coupon to .70. So got both for .39.

Is there a limit on how many items you can purchase when using a monthly ivc? Will the deduction apply to all items that apply to that coupon? So if i had a coupon from the monthlyl IVC for crest ..if I buying 10 crest will the coupon apply to all 10 in that single transaction? TIA!

No, the IVC coupons will apply to all the ones you buy. :)

Okay I am absolutely new to all of this! I am trying to plan a shopping trip. I am going to be using rewards card. I hope lol My question is I have a coupon $1 on any two schick hydro shave gel. So say 3.79 ea. 7.58 for two minus the dollar coupon 6.58. It says on website Earn Points. •Redeem instantly with as few as 5,000 points is exactly what it says… so question being I do this offer and I pay 6.58 and receive NO LESS then 5,000 points, which is equal to 5.00 in store purchases????

I’m also new to Walgreens. I was told that you could not get points on a transaction that you use points. Ok great. But how about when I use my RR, can I still accumulate points if I just use those? So Walgreens has a sale on the Sale on Starbucks Coffee for $4.99 with card and earn 1000 points. If I bought 2 of these $4.99 + $4.99 = $9.98 and use my RR of $5, can I still earn the 2000 points?

Yes you will still earn points when you pay with RR. :) RR are considered Manufacture’s coupons.

Ok great! What about if I use my points to buy the products that offer RR, will I still get the RR at the end?

Cynthia, You can use a RR to buy an item that gives out a RR…BUT you have to be sure that you are not using a RR offered by the same manufacturer.

So, while you COULD use a Crest RR to buy more Crest, you won’t get another RR printed out. You’ll need to use the Crest RR on an item from a different manufacturer, so that you don’t waste it.

I’ve been reading this blog for awhile and had never before seen to give the Wags Qs last. I’ve always given them first which could be why I always have so many problems with the register not accepting!

Hi there! Okay, so if I buy two items under the BOGO Free sale, and I use a coupon on the item I’m buying, can I also use a register reward in the transaction, since I technically have (2) items? So, (2) items = (2) coupons (i.e. my coupon and my RR).

OR does the 2nd item not count at all toward the total items in the transaction? I.E. I could not use the RR.

Please explain which scenario is correct. Thanks so much!

If an ad coupon says 2 for $4, do I have to buy 2? Or can I buy just one and get $2 for it? I’m still learning how to coupon effectively at Walgreens!

I am having trouble printing. I hit print and it says I must install the program. I accept and then it says I already have it installed, do I want to replace it, I chose yes and nothing happens. I try again and it goes through all the above steps. I am really losing some good coupons. I have printed from this web site for years! Please help.
