Walgreens Coupons & Deals

Updates From The Field 11/28!

by Christie Hardcastle on November 28, 2010

Every Sunday I go out and try different deals and report back on what I found!  Here are some updates from my trip today that will hopefully make your shopping trip a little easier. :-)

Some transactions are prompting a a $3 off of $15 coupon for your next transaction good through the following day ONLY. One customer purchased just eggs and Nutella and got it, another got it just for buying gum, both paid cash. I did not get it when I did my large transactions with Register Rewards and coupons. However I tried buying something small and paid cash, no coupons, just to see if it would print and it did.

My recommendation… buy something under $1 (like the Breathe Right trial sized strips $.49 (w/in ad Q) or the Salonpas that is only $.89 (w/in ad Q) ) pay cash and don’t use a coupon.  That way you very likely will get the $3/$15 to use on your transaction. If it prints for you let us know what you bought!
I had so much fun buying cheap make up today! There are also other products like eyeliner pencil sharpeners and eye make up remover that are included in the sale and valid with the coupon.

Plus be sure to look out for Holiday Bonus Packs! I found bonus packs of mascara that included a FREE eyeshadow and they rang up 1/2 off at $1.50.  So you can get a SUPER deal on these and they’d be cute to throw in as stocking stuffers or gift bags.

7 – Bonus Packs of Mascara w/ FREE Eyeshadow $10.50
-$5/$10 Wet ‘n Wild – All You, Nov. 2010 x 12/1 (or Sept. x12/31)
Total = $5.50 for 7 Mascaras & 7 Eye-shadows!
= $.39 EACH!
I was so happy that they programmed the holiday M&Ms this time in the M&M deal. They were pictured so I was hoping that would be the case but during the sale on 11/14 they were not ringing up correctly.

I finally was able to pick up some Pretzel M&Ms. Last time there was a gentleman who had cleared out all the stores in my area. I guess he’s out of coupons or found that 40 bags of M&Ms was enough for him. ;-) Can’t wait to break open a bag!

4 – M&M’s Pretzel 9.9-12.6oz 4/$10
-$1/1 M&M Pretzel Chocolate Candies, Any 9.9 Oz+ PRINT
(facebook coupon I was able to print 2 per account /computer)
= Total = $6, Get Back $5 RR
= $.25 EACH!

I went to pick up my free 8 by 10 collage and it printed, the cashier was surprised. messed me up a little since I was not intending to buy anything, had to come back home and look at your website to decide how I am going to spend it, yeah Christie, what would I do without you! At least I now have M&Ms on my list


Drew November 28, 2010 at 5:53 pm

A lot of people were getting the RR today when they just bought 1 item. I saw a 20 oz Coke, a bottle if water, & Camphonique (or however you spell that ointment), & a $9 box of hair dye each print one. I also saw a person get one when just picking up their free collage.


LisaCarol November 28, 2010 at 5:56 pm

Is the $15 before or after coupons? Can you tell?


alexis November 28, 2010 at 5:57 pm

I went to WAGS twice today, both times it printed when I purchased the gillete fusion razor. It did not print when I used it on several items. Maybe its for 1 item purchases?


alexis November 28, 2010 at 5:57 pm

Do you have any good scenerios to use this coupon?


CaseyB November 28, 2010 at 6:19 pm

Just back from my Walgreens and bought an Arizona Iced Tea with the In-Ad Q paid cash and got the $3 off $15…bought another tea the same way and got a second one also :-)


Sara November 28, 2010 at 6:52 pm

I did not get it. I bought several items, used coupons, Jingle Cash and paid my OOP with a credit card. LOL Oh well, its cool some ppl are getting them.=)


Christie November 28, 2010 at 7:07 pm

I think that it may be printing for small purchases. I know it will print for more than one because of the woman who bought eggs & nutella. I like the Arizona ice tea idea though! From what I can tell it is $15 before Walgreens coupons but not before MQ. That’s how it seemed to work for me. So I would plan it that way.


LisaCarol November 28, 2010 at 8:06 pm

I wonder if it is working in nw Arkansas. I paid cash ($12) for 2 items (a notebook and dry erase markers). Nothing. Stopped at a second store and bought two tunas ($0.59 each with WQ, regular $0.99 each). Nothing. After the second stop, I thought it might have been one vs two items, but I guess that’s not it.


Sherri November 28, 2010 at 8:29 pm

I got it too. I bought 2 newspapers and a hershey bar by the register and paid with cash. My Mother paid with jingle cash and cash and did not get one. She bought 2 newspapers 2 jugs of distilled water and 2 packs of silly bands.


Guest November 28, 2010 at 9:32 pm

I worked today and it was printing for small purchases only. It seemed as if anyone using jingle cash did not receive it. I think it’s Walgreens sneaky way of getting customers who make small purchases to come back and spend more (sadly). I got one today and used it later before using any MQ or WQ. YMMV! :D


Avy November 28, 2010 at 9:46 pm

Same store, I got one when I pick up my free 8X10 collage. Got another one when I bought Huggies wipe, paid with $3RR (not jingle cash) and cash.


Holli November 28, 2010 at 9:49 pm

I went today and did 4 transactions. The first three had multiple items and I didn’t get one. The last was just a razor that I used a coupon on, my debit card and got a RR back and it printed. So it might be on just one item, but doesn’t have to be a cash purchase.


Tori November 28, 2010 at 9:50 pm

I ran in for some of the Charmin that is on sale got one pack paid with my debit card and got one.


Cherese November 28, 2010 at 9:57 pm

Went in with my daughter and she wanted to buy something with her money (a $0.29 Russell Stovers Peppermint Bark Snowman) and to my surprise we got a $3 off $15. I’ve since gone back and got 4 coupons to print.


Cathy November 28, 2010 at 10:00 pm

I did three transactions using q’s and RR, got nothing so I tried buying two of the candy bars at the register and used the in ad q and paid cash, nothing again.


Stefany November 28, 2010 at 11:44 pm

Does the total spend to use this voucher have to be $15 before or after coupons? Can anyone recommend good scenerios with it? Tia


Joce November 29, 2010 at 12:21 am

I purchased Wags toilet cleaner 50c with in-ad q and got 1 $3 off q printed. I paid cash instead of credit card.


Jen November 29, 2010 at 1:08 am

I just picked up my free photo collage, paid nothing, and got the coupon.


Antoinette November 29, 2010 at 7:27 am

I purchased a few things yesterday and the cashier didnt see my wreath hanger hook the first time, so she had to ring that up alone for a second transaction and thats when i got the $3 RR back. I bought a $2.99 wreath hanger and got the $3 RR back.


Sue November 29, 2010 at 12:06 pm

I bought 2 Sunday papers and paid cash. The $3/$15 RR did not print. I will try again this afternoon. I am happy for those who received the offer. I hope you get everything you want with a low oop.


Nina November 29, 2010 at 3:43 pm

Hey Chrisite,
Happy Holidays! I did two transactions. For first one I only bought a kids toothbrush for a $1.20 and got that. I used the $3 coupon on second transaction worth $45 and it didnt print for the second transaction. May be beacuse I already used one.



Kelly November 29, 2010 at 6:20 pm

My husband just went to Wags to purchase Ensure. He knows very little about the specifics of my obsession with saving. But, he was very proud to tell me that the nice cashier gave him a coupon (RR) for $3 off $15. He said, but you have to use it by tomorrow. DONE!!!!


ali November 29, 2010 at 6:50 pm

I bought one of the votive candles with the in-ad Q of 6/$1 and the $3 off $15 printed. Then I used it to buy 2 boxes of Sinex @ $5 each, 4 boxes of Vicks drops @ 2/$1.79 and 3 boxes of 200 ct. puffs @ $2.49 each–subtotal: $21.05.(I knew I was going to be in the negative so I threw in a book of stamps at $8.80 to absorb it) New subtotal: $29.85. Gave the $3 off $15 first, plus 2 $4/1 Sinex, 4 $1.50/1 any Vicks product (having the Sinex in the order absorbed the coupon overage so it didn’t beep), and 3 of the free puffs when you buy 2 Vicks products, max value $1.99, then the Wags in-ad Q for the Puffs to be $1.59 (took off $2.70)…
Subtotal including stamps:
-$3 (catalina)
-$8 (sinex)
-$6 (vicks)
-$5.97 (free puffs)
-$2.70 (wags puffs Q)
TOTAL: $4.18, received $5 RR, so an $0.82 moneymaker :)

I wanted to get the Sinex since the Q’s expire tomorrow, and I really needed stamps, so I used the Vicks drops overage and the Wags Q Puffs overage to pay for my stamps. I will save the rest of my shopping for F & F on Wednesday. YAY!!


Kristi November 29, 2010 at 6:55 pm

I bought a gallon of milk, paid cash and did not get a $3 off coupon:(


claire November 29, 2010 at 7:00 pm

does any one know on what day it will stop printing?


Deborah November 29, 2010 at 7:44 pm

I bought a can of Arizona Iced Tea on sale for $0.50 with in-ad coupon, paid cash and got the $3 of $15!!


Renata November 29, 2010 at 8:39 pm

I bought 2 of the $.19 candles and was surprised when I didn’t get the $3 off $15. Maybe just 1 candle? Is this today only?


Katie November 29, 2010 at 9:26 pm

i bought a pack of gum & got it.


theresa v November 29, 2010 at 10:14 pm

I tried pop and chips …cash..no coupon. Another store one candle ….got the coupon!


theresa v November 29, 2010 at 10:16 pm

Heard about the one candle to get it from hip2save


Mayra November 30, 2010 at 5:10 am

I went yesterday and did 3 transactions hopping one will generate the $3off coupon but none worked.

Trans #1: bought 2 votives and 2 arizona tea (nothing)using in-ad coupons only

Trans #2: bought 1 votive (nothing either)didn’t use in-ad coupon

Trans #3: bought 2 activity books 2 for $1 + 1 puzzle no coupons use and nothing!!!

Then when my husband paid for his passport pics got it, he was laughing so much cause there I am trying so hard to get the coupon and he was the one who got it, so I really think it was random because I even let people go in between transactions and nothing and I didn’t see anybody getting it even though some people Or I should say none were using coupons and making all kinds of purchases.


Allison November 30, 2010 at 10:50 am

Does anyone know if it is still working for today?


Sara November 30, 2010 at 1:10 pm

It is working today…paid cash for a 2L of Mt Dew and got the $3 coupon


Sophia November 30, 2010 at 8:02 pm

I did 3 transactions:

#1: enfamil tub $21.99 – $5/1 coupon= paid $16.99 +received $2RR+$3/$15 RR
#2: same transaction got it both RRs again
#3: bought 2 dasani water 24 packs and a few other things and used RRs & debit card & didn’t get another $3/$15.


Jessica November 30, 2010 at 8:32 pm

I was just at Wags I purchased olay body wash to use my last $5 Q and capri sun w/ in ad Q. No coupon. the guy behind me bought something paid cash and he got the $3/15 coupon. So I went back and bought 2 .29 candy santas paid cash and no coupon. So what is triggering these coupons to print?????? How do I get one?????


jilldianne November 30, 2010 at 9:08 pm

I was at Wags this evening and bought a package of Command hooks (on sale for $1.50). Used $1.00/1 MQ and the $3/$15 catalina printed out.

Plan on using the cat tomorrow along with the Walgreens Friends & Family 1 day only 15% off coupon. I think I’ll get an Olay product and use it toward the P&G Get Caught Looking Beautiful $20.00 MIR.

Now to locate a MQ for the Olay product…


Susan November 30, 2010 at 10:25 pm

I got several tonight between 6:30-7:30. Bought only Salonpas $5.99 RR at pharmacy. Got $3/$15. Bought bubble knee-hi at photo $.33? Got $3/$15. Votives, RS Candy, Garlic Salt, W cough drops, over and over — one item only. Then, forgot, bought 2 W Chapsticks, NO $3/$15. Ended up with 12 – 15! Bring on F&F!


R November 30, 2010 at 10:37 pm

DH stopped by Wags to pickup a 12 pack of cokes. He was quite proud when a $3/15 q printed! :) He said “I knew you would be excited to get this coupon!” LOL


rachel November 30, 2010 at 10:59 pm



Deborah November 30, 2010 at 11:48 pm
