If you have difficulty when trying to use your coupons either for a register reward deal OR in conjunction with a coupon in the Walgreens Monthly coupon book this post is for you. I went through this weeks ad and found several examples that you might want to keep in your coupon binder if you encounter either of these problems.
Using Coupons on Register Reward Deals
There are 2 examples this week of Walgreens encouraging you to use Manufacturers coupons from the paper in conjunction with a Register Reward deal. The first is for the Benadryl. You can see where I’ve circled the “Coupon savings in most Sunday papers” in the ad, right below the Register Rewards symbol. Why would Walgreens let you know there are coupons available if you weren’t allowed to use them?
A second example is for the Schick razors. Again Walgreens is letting us all know that there may be Coupons in our Sunday papers for the Schick razor. So, how can we be told that we can’t use them when we were just encouraged to go dig through our paper to find them and bring them in for this deal?
(Although in this case it probably should read in “some” Sunday papers since we know most areas didn’t get that coupon but that’s a whole other post. )
The point is that advertising something is available and then turning you down when you arrive at the store is, to say the absolute least, – very, very, very uncool.
Using Manufacturers Coupons & the Monthly Coupon Book
This is my ABSOLUTE favorite. Here’s an example of Walgreens saying “come in and use our $1 OFF Garnier Fructis Anti-Dandruff Shampoo from our Monthly Coupon Book AND there might be a coupon in your Sunday paper too”. The ad this week is encouraging us to stack both these coupons. Why would they encourage us to do something if it’s not allowed?
So if you encounter either of these problems at your store, hold on to this ad. It’s hard to argue with the stores own advertising.
I try to post these when I see them but if you guys come across any more examples like these let us know! I’m considering getting this Garnier Fructis example printed on a T-shirt!
