Bought 4 pretzel m&m’s and 1 blistex, used 4 $1 off cpn for m&m’s and 1 $2RR from last week, paid $7 oop.
Then went and bought 1 Brachs Candy Corn, 1 Gerber Graduate little crunchies and 4 Ben and Jerry’s, used 4 0.55 cpns, 1 $2/2 wags for b&j and my 5RR and 2 RR from 1st transaction and paid $1.55 oop.
Less than 9.00 dollars, not bad.


Monica Leal September 18, 2011 at 5:08 pm

I’ve been rolling the M&M RR into the Hyland’s meds. For 4 bags M&M’s, 2 boxes jello, and 1 Hyland’s I paid $1.39oop and was left w/a $5RR!


lorrie September 18, 2011 at 5:15 pm

do you have to have the walgreens Q for the revlon or is there a code that the cashier could just input into the register?


Brandon September 18, 2011 at 5:42 pm

Unfortunately the Wags Q in the 7/24 SS only has a barcode so there’s no code to be given :(


ali September 18, 2011 at 8:01 pm

The code for the $2.00 off Walgreens Revlon coupon is 5829. It is not on the coupon, but someone else mentioned it, so I asked the cashier to try it and it worked. I have the actual coupon myself, but I want to help out anyone else that doesn’t have it. Also, I think the Revlon BOGO 1/2 off sale is starting again on 9/25, which means that it will be in effect in my store on Saturday. Soooo…on Saturday 9/24, the 40% off, BOGO 1/2 off, and $3 RR WYB $10 will all overlap. (the $2.00 Walgreens Revlon Q expires on Saturday, too.) To sweeten the deal even more, ask your cosmetics advisor if they have the $1.00 off Revlon manf. Q. Mine had a tearpad on hand that they received for the Revlon “Saturdate”. :)


will September 20, 2011 at 10:22 am

Did any one have an issue with the revlon deal above not printing a RR.I tried 3 times and not one printed. Thanks


Daly September 20, 2011 at 3:01 pm

Yes, I did it and it did not print, but my friend did it at the same time and hers printed. I don’t understand why.


Becky September 20, 2011 at 11:35 am

Thank you for the m&m deal and to Ali for the code to the foundation it worked for me. yay!


Jennifer September 22, 2011 at 12:22 am

Thank you so so, much This worked perfect for me tonight :) Foundation and concealer (neither were marked on sale, but I scanned them and they were on sale!!) 1 foundation,1concealer, 2 royal jello…gave code 5928,+ in ad Q for jello and 2 5/1 Q’s paid with 2$rr from blistex..oop 1.44 and 3$ back yay!! and plenty of colors and shades too choose from here in CT!


Jennifer September 22, 2011 at 12:27 am

oops I meant 5829 (


Yas September 18, 2011 at 5:21 pm

Is this WAGS coupon the same that was around about a month ago or so, code was like 2956 or something?? Or is it in the september coupon booklet??


Rosy September 18, 2011 at 5:26 pm

Do you have a scenario without the wags coupon…. I can’t find it anywhere?? :(


Brandon September 18, 2011 at 5:51 pm

Without the $2 Wags Q:

Buy 2 Concealers @ $5.99 each = $11.98
Use (2) $5/1 coupons
=$1.98 get back $3 RR

or you can do the first Deal Idea to get the foundation but you’ll pay $4.98 and get back $3 RR, so still not a bad deal.


Rosy September 18, 2011 at 5:57 pm

Thank you!! I am so excited :)


shanny September 18, 2011 at 6:35 pm

Sometimes they will have a coupon at the beauty counter…It doesnt hurt to ask…This morning i didnt have the 1/1 Qs and was talking to the cashier about the deal and she pulled out a tearpad of 1/1 revlon Qs them to me…Love that girl!!!


angeline September 18, 2011 at 5:28 pm

i got on my first transaction

im definetly doing the revlon deal now i have 8 of the 5.00 off coupons and i thought it was a sucky week and again wags proves me wrong lol…..


Jan September 18, 2011 at 5:44 pm

Would have been a great deal to take advantage of, however, the color selection is EXTREMELY limited…Bummer :(


Beatrice F. September 21, 2011 at 5:10 pm

Try Friday or Sat morning. My Wag’s (So California) told me they get their re-stock shipment in on Friday and shelves will be re-stocked Fri or Sat morn. Went to Wags this morning (Wed) and they were re-stocking but not the Revlon???


Penny September 18, 2011 at 5:44 pm

Where do you get the 2 wags Q??


Penny September 18, 2011 at 5:46 pm

Sorry that was for the revlon


Priscilla September 18, 2011 at 5:56 pm

My wag’s would not let me use there 2 dollar off coupon, they said although it say’s Walgreens only it is still a manufacturer’s coupon.. bummer!!


Susan September 18, 2011 at 6:07 pm

Does it have to be $10 value AFTER coupons?? I’m a little hesitant about doing the “buy x amount, get x rr” deals since I’ve had mostly bad luck with them.


Cindy September 18, 2011 at 7:07 pm

You have to hit the $10.00 mark after using the $2.00 wag coupon, then u can start using mfc. Thats the way I’ve been doing it and i get the $3 RR… For example (2) $6.99 items (6) $4.99 items total is $26.35-$16.00 wag cpn: $10.35 then you use (8) Revlon mfc: total $2.36 and you get the $3 RR.


AmandaG007 September 18, 2011 at 6:11 pm

Wags brand medicated bandages (20 ct) 75 percent off… 1.39… 1.04 each after b1g1 50 off! Cheaper than buying neosporin.


lorrie September 18, 2011 at 6:23 pm

i was so excited to do the revlon deal but my spokane ss didnt have the coupon :( but i did get the great deals on m&m’s and blistex and hylands!


nannette September 18, 2011 at 6:30 pm

were do u find out about the monthly specials? I did the M&M’s but 2 Pretzel and 2 coconut and did not get RR. Was going to ask cashier why but since it is an unadvertised monthly special didn’t know how to prove my point…


Jennifer September 19, 2011 at 11:29 am

What size bags were you buying? The store I work at doesn’t carry the coconut M&M’s in the big bags, so I was curious. The RR deal is only for the 9.9 and up I think – somewhere around that size.


Dina September 18, 2011 at 6:34 pm

One of the wags did not have the Hyland’s (there was a spot for it, on the very bottom shelf, cleared out shortly after opening.) The other did have it. I saw it with the “random children’s meds” in both stores – the stuff there is no real category for, like the saline for clearing out their noses, etc.

I found plenty of the Blistex in each of the stores that I visited. Unlike the Rite Aids I’ve been in, my local Wags all seem to have a “lip care section” so you don’t have to go hunting around end caps and tiny little cardboard displays…:)

Anyway, got two Blistex and one Hyland’s. Also used the Tom’s of Maine coupon in this week’s paper for .99 ToM toothpaste.


Evelyn September 18, 2011 at 7:50 pm

I did 10 bottles of nailpolish. 9 at reg. price of $4.99), and 1 at reg. price of $5.99. Used 1 of the $2 Walgreens q, and 9 $1 Revlon q’s. $1.50 OOP not including tax, and got the $3 RR. If I would have counted correctly, I should have given 10 $1 man. q’s and paid only $.50 OOP. Still did really well. :)


tracey September 18, 2011 at 7:51 pm

bought the 4 m&ms never printed the RR after much looking and researching the manager went in the back and gave me the $5 RR. I’m getting better usually i would have just walked away and said never mind it’s ok… today I held strong.


Christie September 18, 2011 at 8:52 pm

Good Job Tracey!


Regina September 19, 2011 at 11:51 pm



Rachel September 18, 2011 at 8:11 pm

Did any one find/have any success with the poise 3/$9 deal? My Mom was excited since she has three $3/1 Catalina coupons, but couldn’t find any in the stores.


shannyn September 18, 2011 at 8:18 pm

I had luck with these today. I looked at my fav store and they didn’t have any. Then I tried my 2nd fav store and looked in the feminane care aisle and to my surprise they had some. I had (3) $2.00 q’s. So free for me today.


dluvsfreebies September 18, 2011 at 8:33 pm

that’s where i found them too …with the regular maxipads


Kelly September 18, 2011 at 11:52 pm

Yes, I did this twice today (got 6 packages)…they were in the regular maxi pads and were the “thin” Poise liners — at one of my Walgreens, they didn’t have the tag for the RR deal, but they did at another Walgreens. I also had some of the $3 catalina’s…such a good deal!!


lucy September 18, 2011 at 8:39 pm

I went to walgreens and ALL the revlon stuff was marked at $9.99 (like your picture)…. I don’t get where you are getting the $5.99 and $8.99 prices?


Christie September 18, 2011 at 8:51 pm

Lucy – did you have them ring it up? The ones labeled as $9.99 will ring up $8.99 (40% off of the regular price of $14.99). Have them actually do a price check for you and you can confirm.


Larissa Lee September 18, 2011 at 9:16 pm

Regina September 19, 2011 at 11:53 pm

WOW……work it guuuulllfriend! I am learning so much from these posts tonight – thanks


Sharon September 18, 2011 at 9:27 pm

I did the Revlon deal with the concealer with both the $5/1 and $2 Walgreen q. It did not print the $3 RR and the cashier said it was because it had to be $10 AFTER coupons. She said it does that with some manufacturers Even though I do not think this is correct, but it was still a $2 MM. ($5 would have been better!)


Sharon September 18, 2011 at 9:31 pm

I should have kept reading your blog postings. I see why it didn’t print out a RR now! $10 BEFORE the Walgreen coupon!


Mary September 18, 2011 at 9:49 pm

I believe it does have to be $10 after Walgreens coupons.


Sharon September 18, 2011 at 9:28 pm

My store OUT of pretzel M & M’s!


sheri September 18, 2011 at 10:14 pm

I got the Ben and Jerry’s pints for $1.44 oop. On sale for 2.99 used the $2/2 wags coupon from newspaper and the .55c coupon from the tear pad. Nice price for a family treat.


Melissa September 18, 2011 at 10:21 pm

Bah! Didn’t get the coupon from today’s smartsource for the revlon deal. what a bummer.


Beatrice F. September 21, 2011 at 5:15 pm

Some Wags has one better at the beauty register, not the regular cashier…$2 Wags Revlon Q off EACH item on top of the 40% off. If your Wags has the coupon, it’s even better than the $1 Revlon q that was supposed to be in Sunday’s insert.


Brenda September 18, 2011 at 10:45 pm

9/11 RP has the $1/1 pretzel M&M’s


arcy September 18, 2011 at 11:24 pm

My store was out of pretzel M&M but I asked if they had any in the back and they checked but were out. I told the cashier the story and if she would be willing to take them for other ones they had and she said yes. They rang thru!!! I was so glad I asked cause I got the ones I liked!! There are 2 walgreens in town and one treats me like a thief and the other is so nice. I love their store and give them candy every time I go and tell them how much I love them. I gave them mentos this trip.


Guest September 19, 2011 at 12:09 am

Hate when customers call cashiers nice for helping commit coupon fraud :/

The coupon specifies that it’s only good on the product mentioned. Yes, the coupon works on other ones… But that doesn’t make it the right thing to do.


Lorrie September 19, 2011 at 1:00 am

Arcy- one of the wags treats u the right way! Hopefully you’ll figure out which one and change your ways so the rest of us can keep using coupons the legal way! An honest mistake that happens once is understandable, but you clearly acknowledge this to be fraudulent use of a coupon. Go ahead and flag me…..but SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!


Erynn September 19, 2011 at 4:37 am

You’re right, Lorrie. It’s like stealing candy from a baby!…err, candy from the manufacturer. Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.


guest September 19, 2011 at 11:18 am

People need to relax. A store giving a replacement item for something not in stock, is not wrong, and definately not coupon fraud. I think it is great when a store is trying to be accomodating, I just wish more of them would be as helpful as the one Arcy was at.


lorrie September 19, 2011 at 1:57 pm

actually yes it is coupon fraud! Read the description on those coupons…good for 1 bag pretzel m&ms. not one bag of any kind! so no i wont relax. i need to coupon to keep my family afloat during hard times. i do it the right way and dont appreciate people screwing it up for the rest of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Guest September 19, 2011 at 3:39 pm

Being accommodating by substituting a sale item is one thing, but allowing you to use a different coupon for it is fraud.


guest September 19, 2011 at 4:12 pm

A store voluntarily substituting one item for another is not coupon fraud. Listen to the word, “substituting”. If it was coupon fraud, then I can assure you that walgreens would not allow it to happen. I have been couponing for many years, and “shelf clearers” and “fraudulent couponing” bugs me like you wouldn’t believe. This however is far from coupon fraud. It is simply using a coupon on a replacement item that the store is allowing. If the store didn’t allow that to happen, then yes it would be coupon fraud.


Guest September 19, 2011 at 4:28 pm

You’re basically contradicting yourself. If the store didn’t allow it to happen, then it would be coupon fraud? So if they said, no you can’t do that, and she did, it’d be coupon fraud? hahahahahha.


guest September 19, 2011 at 4:37 pm

That is exactly what I am saying. Hahaha.


Lorrie September 19, 2011 at 5:33 pm

It’s not the stores right to substitute the coupon unless it’s a store coupon for a store brand. I’m pretty sure they didn’t get permission from m&m mars to do so, therefore……….fraud!


yvonne September 20, 2011 at 6:32 pm

A couple weeks ago, I bought Safeway brand ketchup cause they were out of the Heinz brand that I had a coupon for. The manager allowed me to substitute for another brand and I was still able to use my coupons. She said that when the Heinz stock came back in, she would scan both and still get credit for the coupon. She didn’t scan the coupon at the time, but rather just deducted the amount from my balance. She said that this was ok. Is that coupon fraud?


Guest September 20, 2011 at 7:57 pm

It definitely is! Look at it from Heinz point of view, they have to reimburse a coupon for an item they didn’t even sell!!!


margaret September 19, 2011 at 12:51 am

i got 10 different eye shadows…they had 10 different colors LOL anyways 9 said they were 4.99 regular price, and 1 was 5.49 but they all rang up 3.29 on sale, so they were all 5.49 regular :(
then the wags q only took off $18 not $20 and I only had 6 MQ so I was supposed to pay $4.40 oop but ended up paying $8.90 oop…thinking I should go return a couple and get my money back but not sure which one is the one that DIDNT take off the wags q.


Nicole September 19, 2011 at 9:41 am

Ok I’m very new to this couponing stuff (but thank you so much for your help). I’m just a little confused about the coupons. Like when you have 2 of the $5 off revlon coupons. How do I get 2 of them? Am I supposed to buy 2 sunday papers? (And some other deals list using like 8 coupons for 8 products. Buying that many papers gets expensive?)

And another question – I don’t know if I’m reading these things right. So for the example I cut and pasted below,You are saying to use 1 of the $2 off 1 coupons that were in the July 24 newspaper smart saver coupon section and the coupon expires 9/30. But how does that end up taking off $4? Is there another Walgreens coupon I’m supposed to use?
(1) – $2/1 Revlon Cosmetics, any – 07-24-11 SS Wags Q x9/30 (Takes Off $4)

And in the comments above, people mentioned coupon codes. What are they, how do I use those?

Thanks in advance for helping.


Anna m September 19, 2011 at 10:27 am

The $2/1 wags q is only for walgreens and not a manufacturer coupon so it will deduct $2 from each item just as if you had one for each item. The code is the code for this coupon. Some walgreens will allow you to give them just the code instead o the coupon but not al.


Becca September 19, 2011 at 10:40 am


Your are right … you do need to buy a second paper to get a second coupon. At this time they aren’t a printable coupon, so get as many papers as you need coupons. Your second question is about the Walgreens ad from 7/24. Because it is a WALGREENS ad (often referred to as a Walgreens in ad, all you need is one of those for your purchase, even if you buy several items in a purchase that match the in ad coupon. After the cashier scand your ad, Walgreens magical computers multiply the in ad coupon by as many matching items you have in that purchase. If you have 2 Revlon items in your purchase and the cashier scans your Walgreens in as coupon, it will take off $4. If you have three, in your case, Revlon items, it will take off $6. And as an extra bonus, the Walgreens in ads don’t count against your coupon count. By now you know that if you want to use manufacturer coupons, you can only use one per item. So if you are buying 2 Revlon items, you can only use 2 manufacturer coupons (the ones you’re getting from the paper inserts)But with these BONUS in ad coupons, it means that you can use regular manufacturer coupons on your same purchase as well as the Walgreens in ads, and only the manufacturer coupons count against the number of coupons you can use! They are like a little Wags gift!


Amanda September 19, 2011 at 12:41 pm

I did this deal last night!!! $2.28oop $12.00 in RR!!!!!


Lisa September 19, 2011 at 12:50 pm

I went to get the revlon deal at my Walgreens today, however the $5 coupon would not work on the concealer – only the foundation. I asked her to void the transaction and I took my coupons back and left to regroup. It clearly says $5 off any age defying product. But the machine said none of product purchased when it came to the concealer. Anyone else have the same thing happen? Should I try another walgreens?


Mayra September 19, 2011 at 1:26 pm

Lisa- I just did the Revlon deal this morning here in Columbia,SC using the $5/1 coup on the concealer. I bought 2 concealers at $5.99 each and used 2 $5/1 MQ. The coup went through without any problems and the RR printed just fine. I wonder what could have happened?


kat September 19, 2011 at 4:38 pm

Lisa, try another Walgreens, I also bought (2) Revlon concealer 5.99ea I gave (2) $5/1 & (1) $2.00 RR from the suave deal, payed .70OOP got back $3rr, did this transaction twice No problems/beepage on coupons. :)


Lisa September 19, 2011 at 5:29 pm

Mayra and Kat: Thanks so much. After reading your responses I decided to try another Walgreens – and it worked!!! Yay!! The coupon does say “ANY age defying product” so I don’t know what happened the first time around. I got two concealers for $5.99 each and used two $5 coupons. Got the $3 RR back as well. Thanks so much!!!


Lisa September 19, 2011 at 8:20 pm

Yay!! So happy to read this, good for you!


Beatrice F. September 21, 2011 at 5:06 pm

It depends on the items you purchased. They may not have come up to the $10 spending requirement AFTER the Wags $2 Q was deducted.
For example. I would have had to purchase 4 lipsticks @ $4.59 = $18.36, LESS the $2Q (4) = $10.36 meeting the “spending” requirement of $10


Dena September 19, 2011 at 12:59 pm

is the $5 coupon regional? my paper didn’t seem to have one.


Penny September 19, 2011 at 2:15 pm

The foundation is $15.99 at my store.

Here’s a nice MM on the Revlon:

buy 3 of the concealers = $17.98, less $6.00 WAGS cpn (3x$2) = $11.98 (so it’s over the $10 mark)
Less 3x$5 mfr cpn= $15.00

$3.02 MM + $3 RR = $6.02 MM!!! Just make sure you have something to eat up the $3.02 overage.


Madison September 20, 2011 at 12:47 am

Has anyone done it this way and got the $3.02 overage? I know that some registers will automatically adjust the wag’s q so that you don’t get the overage even it you have other items to absorb the overage.


Veronica September 21, 2011 at 5:44 pm

Done today with the blistex and clearance gum to cover overage. got back the RR for revlon and rr for blistex


Amanda September 22, 2011 at 2:12 am

Nice! That’s exactly what I was planning to do! (except for the gum lol) Great job!


Jillian September 19, 2011 at 10:23 pm

I was so happy to stock up on the Hylands, my older son started preschool this year so i suspect we’ll have lots of colds coming home with him.

I’m new to couponing at Walgreens, this site has helped me tremendously. I ordered a bunch of the $2/1 Revlon Wags coupons off of ebay and have a few extra to trade. Does anyone have any of the $5/1 revlon coupons left? thanks ahead of time! oh you can email me to trade at (jillianortiz at rocketmail dot com)


Denise September 19, 2011 at 10:37 pm

thx for this I’ve been wanting foundation for a long time. I was waiting for a deal. And THANK YOU for the m&m deal too. I was dying to try the pretzel m&m yumm. Have a great day.


Erica September 21, 2011 at 3:24 pm

So I went today to score on this revlon deal, and sadly, after 4 attempted transactions, it didn’t work.

I tried using the Wags coupon code – $2/1 which did take.
However, using the concealer and foundation, the $5/1 coupons would not work with the wags.
When I tried to use the manufactuer coupons only, the first $5/1 coupon took, but not the second? I am very confused.

Could this have been a machine error? She said that even after attempting to override, it wouldn’t let her do so.

I am going to try another Wags tomorrow – hopefully better luck.


Chris September 21, 2011 at 3:25 pm

So for this deal, we need to give the Walgreens coupon first in order to get the deal and RR? I thought we had to do it the other way around usually? Thanks in advance!


Amanda September 22, 2011 at 2:14 am

I always give my manufacturer coupons first and then my Wags. I’m not sure if there is a correct way or anything, but this works for me without any problems. Hope that helps


Berenice September 22, 2011 at 7:31 pm

Someone please tell me which coupon do I use first the 2.00 wags or the 5.00 man.
