*HOT* FREE Gatorade Prime & Recover!

by Christie on August 24, 2011

There is a HOT deal on Gatorade products that quite a few of you are finding at Walgreens! When you buy (1) Gatorade 20oz for $1.70, you’ll get Catalina coupon for a FREE Gatorade Prime and one FREE Gatorade Recover.

PLUS when you redeem your coupon for the FREE Gatorade Prime and FREE Gatorade Recover, it generates another identical Catalina for another FREE Gatorade Prime and FREE Gatorade Recover! I have no idea how long this will keep rolling onto itself.

I recently had the opportunity to try the Gatorade Prime bars and they really do give you a kick start and a burst of energy. You might need to drink them after shopping, with all the fabulous deals that are happening at Walgreens this week. ;-)

***DEAL IDEA TRANSACTION #1***
Buy (1) Gatorade 20oz $1.70
Total = $1.70, Get Back Catalina for FREE Prime & FREE Recover

***DEAL IDEA TRANSACTION #2***
Buy (1) Gatorade Prime $2.49
(1) Gatorade Recover $3.79
Total = $6.28
- FREE Prime & FREE Recover Coupon (max value $2.49 & $3.79)
Total = FREE, Get Back Catalina for another FREE Prime & FREE Recover

(Thanks so much Tracie for the heads up & Kerry for trying out this deal!)

IKR??? I am worn out from the MM Revlon nail polish on Sat, chasing Keri, and the Dove/Caress deal yesterday…whew………….So may deals, so little time….lol ;)

Can I use the catalina in other stores?

Man I really want to drive over there right now and get it, but I think I’m worn out from yesterday. I will have my hubby drop by on his way home again to do this one. Thanks

Does anyone have any idea how long this might last?

Reply

Kelly August 24, 2011 at 4:11 pm

my guess is it will be until supplies last or in otherwords until the deal shows up on that Krazy blogging site LOL

Kelly, I think you’re right because I didn’t get the RR’s.

Just went to my local Wags and they had no 20oz available for individual sale. Tried this with a 32oz but it did not work….
Any suggestions?

I bought the 32 oz and it worked for me

i tried it with the 32oz and it didnt work either.

monica August 24, 2011 at 1:53 pm

hi, just a quick question! i live in pasco wash. and our wags here on road 68 they are not coupon friendly as soon as you walk through the door with your binder they follow you and tell you you can’t do this deal or that deal. like the dove deal they were tearing up the 6 dollar register reward they said corporate orders is this true?

Reply

Annie August 24, 2011 at 2:41 pm

None of the Wags in the Tri-Cities are coupon friendly unfortunately…

Reply

Melissa August 24, 2011 at 2:54 pm

WOW, I would call corporate if they tore up my RR like that!!

Reply

Kelly August 24, 2011 at 3:41 pm

yup, they will tear up the dove RR if you buy the singles, and that order came from corporate

Reply

Carmen August 24, 2011 at 6:09 pm

I would definitely call corporate.

Reply

nosh August 24, 2011 at 1:54 pm

i was wondering too, christie can you or anyone else let us know if they are any problems with the rr from yesterday, we all bought them fair and square, i paid 3.22 oop so they shouldnt cancel or whatever the rr. otherwise im going to make sure i go to each wag, and return each 3 dove bar soaps. PLease someone let us know if your rr from yesterday work.

Reply

Tracie August 24, 2011 at 1:58 pm

I’m a store manager from Walgreens and there will not be a problem redeeming those register rewards from yesterday. There is no way for the registers to tell the difference between those ones and the ones that are generating from the more expensive dove deal going on this week. You’re all good! Happy shopping!

Reply

Becky August 24, 2011 at 5:13 pm

Thank You Tracie!

Reply

Jenn August 24, 2011 at 1:58 pm

I used the Dove rr from yesterday to buy more items yesterday. Have not tried it today though. However, it was pointed out that the travel size degree deodorant a few weeks ago was a glitch also. A week later when I used that rr it did work

Reply

Gigi C. August 24, 2011 at 2:15 pm

I used the $6RR today and it worked fine! :)

Reply

carrie August 24, 2011 at 3:03 pm

I just used 3 rr’s from yesterday,worked fine.

Reply

Leslee August 24, 2011 at 2:06 pm

Nosh there is no possible way they can determine if your $6 RR was from those particular sizes so you should NOT have a problem at all!! :)

Reply

Rita August 24, 2011 at 2:12 pm

Christie post away!! Just went and did this after you buy the first 20oz gatorade it prints the catalina for the other two free. I did as suggested above and still have another coupon to use before 9/1. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I have a football player and these get to be expensive.

Reply

michelle August 24, 2011 at 2:12 pm

I just went to wags and bought the Gatorade stuff – I think you could just buy the Prime and Recover to begin with since it starts printing RR with that purchase too…I bought 1 drink then 3 sets and had to spend 1.69 for the drink and 23 cents for tax for each transction after that the way the cashier rang it up. My hubs is going back to get the flavors he wants with the leftover RR. My wags is out of Dove single bars – boohoo!!

Reply

Roz August 24, 2011 at 11:22 pm

True, u could just buy the prime and recover to begin with, but then ur starting total would be over $6, rather than $1.70 from just buying the 20 oz gatorade….why do that? lol

Reply

Yvonne August 24, 2011 at 2:14 pm

The RR from the Dove bars SHOULD work because they aren’t going to be able to tell if it was obtained from the bar soaps or from the Dove products pictured in the ad that are supposed to generate a $6 RR. At least that’s what I’m counting on.

Reply

Pam August 24, 2011 at 2:15 pm

Does it have to be a 20 oz bottle? The store I checked only had 24 or 32

It worked here in Sacramento, but the manager told the cashier that from now on to tear up the free gatorade RR that print.
It is amazing how those managers think they ae allmighty and without a word from corporate, they make their own decisions on how to do things. I said hell no I will call corporate if they do that, so they let me do the transaction 6 times.

Worked for me like a charm, they had the 20oz bottles for 1.59. The coupon would not scan correctly when I went for the free items though, luckily the manager was very nice and told the cashier to do some type of price adjustment, it came out to just two cents! I got 4 sets haha

Reply

elaine August 24, 2011 at 3:59 pm

Worked fine in San Antonio, TX. I kept doing it until I had 10 of each. And after the 10th transaction I just gave the Catalina for the 2 free items to my cashier. (VERY PATIENT LADY).

Did any one check the expiration date on them? Mine were all expired or expiring between today and tomorrow. (It doesn’t bother me).

I bet that is why they giving them away!

Amy, I say go for it! I’m lucky to have 3 different Wags down the street from my home. At the first, the deal worked wonderfully, at the second it did not print, and at the 3rd it worked!

I only tried the second one closest to home and no luck. :( however I did check their stock of prime and recover products and they didn’t have very many. So I’m assuming, given they expire soon, this deal is varying by region due to quantity in stock. Regardless, it made my afternoon fun and exciting! Thanks Christie and my fellow bargain hunters! :)

I bought the 32oz that is only sale for 2/$3 and I got a RR for the free stuff. Mine expires 9/1 and does not say that it is redeemable only at Walgreens. I only did it once because we are not big fans of stuff like this, but needed some actual gatorade for my son. I’m going to hold onto mine and see if they replenish after these all expire or see if I can get it at another store.

I love the shopping tips from this website! I did the Dove bar soap yesterday 4 times and got $24 in RR! I can hardly wait to see what the next great deal will be this week!

Christie August 25, 2011 at 12:41 pm

I think they are just trying to get rid of the stuff. Seriously.

If they expire soon (within the next week or two) and they have to throw them away that’s going to cost them more $ than having people take them for free. So, we are doing them a favor!

Reply

Lindsey August 25, 2011 at 2:07 pm

Ugh, I hate the “1 per item/customer/visit” rule! My WAGS is like that. It is about 20 minutes from my house too. I just try hitting it up before work, even then it is out of the way. Business is business, right? And I am not a shelf clearer!!!!

I would be happy with a 2 per limit.

I found the deal as soon as it was posted. My granddaughter was taking her nap, I scooped her up and off to Wags we went. We have a small construction business and we are barely keeping a float. My husband said last night that the crew needed restocked on Gatorade. The bank account is so low, I just bought just enough last night to last the rest of the week. It was a blessing the deal came today! Our guys work out in the excessive heat and their bodies need all the great stuff that Gatorade has in it : ) I am just over joyed with the deal I got today!!!

WORKS ON VITAMIN WATER AND SMART WATER! And the other size gatorade. Not the super big one. Can’t remember the size.
I bought a vitamin water and the coupon printed.

SOUTH FLORIDA.

I just got back from the Wags down the street from me here in Spokane, Washington and they did not carry any 20oz bottles. I bought a 32oz instead to see if it might work and it did not. There are a few others around me so I may take a look into this further tomorrow if I have a chance. You never know what you will find at another store!

I’m pretty sure none of these super deals work in spokane. i tried at 3 different ones and none of them had the cats. if you find a wags that actually does do it here in spokane will you please post? thank you very much! :) and good luck

Thanks for the info, I live in Spokane too and was just wondering if the deal would work for me. There is a Walgreens right by my work that I don’t usually go in, but maybe I will check there today to see if they have the 20oz.

This did not work in Washington. Wish deals were not regional.

Worked for me in NW Washington. Rolled the deal 6 times between two stores. Smart Water and Vitamin water will print the RR too with various sizes. It will not for the 32oz size.

How “nw” washington? LOL. I shop at the Longview Wags–didn’t want to make the trip in if it wouldn’t work.

My cashier let me do it once last night – and then my husband and son went back in – cashier for the first time ever seems really snippy about it which is odd. So I went back this morning and nothing printed after I did it. But I still end up with 4 G1 and 4 G3 for $0.84 worth of tax.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I worked like a dream! I was able to snag 10 of each item. I felt so bad I ended up buying a couple more Gatorades. :-)

Hey Everyone, this will also work with the other “G” series perform. you’ll have to have the cashier ring up the two free by entering coupon amount as the pretax total, then you’ll owe just the tax.

Worked, but the first coup I got only gave me off for the Prime and not the Recover for some reason.

Does anyone know if this deal is still working today? I was planning to go at lunch, but if it isn’t working, it isn’t worth a trip. Thanks so much!

It worked at 9:00 CST this morning. It is not regioni specific – it is STORE specific.

One Wags by my house it didn’t print the coupon and the other Wags it printed over and over again!

Good luck!

You are sooooo right! I wish I would have read your tip. The Walgreens by my job did not roll over. But the one by my house did! :-)

Haven’t done this deal but saw a bunch of messages about expiration dates. Check EVERYTHING you buy. That Milka Chocolate that was free a couple months ago expired that month. I didn’t notice it until I broke into a bar a week or so later. Still tasted good though :) I have noticed the same thing on many items one sale at many stores. There’s a reason most go on sale every few months, it’s to clear stock.

this is true. my store that I shop at said it is based on stock. the one closest to my house had a ton! so i was able to get 20. the cashier was so nice. i tried to give her my last coupon but she said she was not allowed. the expiration dates don’t bother me. it is just a suggestion.

Stopped by Walgreen’s in Jacksonville, FL and the Catalina coupon did not roll.

Ginger August 25, 2011 at 6:28 pm

I was able to roll 4 times at my wags in IA around 1:30 today, but on the 4th transaction no Q printed, so I bought another water and got another Q and rolled it again 2 more times. so I got 6 sets, bought 2 smartwaters. so with tax about 4.00 for everything..

Didn’t roll for me in WV. The manager did tell me they were going to stop carrying it, so they had to go to the back to get me some.

hotcouponmama August 25, 2011 at 10:12 pm

Did not roll for me around 6 PM northern CA. But got the last 4 and left. Got like 18 of each yesterday. (I started by buying 3 gatorade separately and just roll those 3 catalinas.

BTW, I did not pay tax. They were all completely free. :-)

Jessica August 26, 2011 at 2:02 am

Well. Jus incase anyone from hike is reading this. Bought 20oz Gatorade. Didnt print. Then saw that 32oz were 2/$3 so returned and bought those instead. Still didn’t print.

Madeline August 26, 2011 at 1:12 pm

I think its over. I did this two days in a row. Went back today and got my two free items and it didn’t print. It was nice while it lasted though!!

Well yesterday went and got a gaterade and received the catalina. Went back today to pick up the 3 ring zip binder 14.99 33% with a 2 coupon 8 bucks. Well Ginger the clerk could not do the mail. The binder was ringing up 16.99 but on the shelf for 14.99. Said tried to insist the math worked when it rang up 11.38 with the walgreens reward card. So she called the manager, she saw no issue with it and rang 9.99 for the binder. Went to use the gatorade coupon and the clerk didn’t read the catalina and only took off for one of the bars! I called the manager they will credit it back to me! Luckily its only 6 blocks away and I have to go by there. I hate that!

Kathy August 27, 2011 at 2:50 pm

I’m not too happy…I did this three times, so I have 6 of their products and they are ALL expired! I know they were free, but I would not have paid 1.69 for one drink had I known they were expired! I’m really thinking about calling both Gatorade AND Wags!

ava thompson August 27, 2011 at 4:24 pm

i went to two different wags in my area today, and at each store i purchased a 20oz bottle of Gatorade. No Catalina’s printed…at either store…any idea why? ava
