Walgreens Deals: Updates From the Field 9/25

by Christie on September 25, 2011

Here are some updates from my trip that will hopefully help your trip go a bit easier…

THERAFLU DEAL
See this Theraflu pictured —————————>
(Multi-Symptom Severe Cold with Lipton)…

DON’T buy it! It is NOT printing out the Register Reward. I don’t know if it is because they just missed including this product in the offer – (which would be really silly because it’s pictured in the ad) or what. Hopefully they’ll get it sorted out. If you purchased a Theraflu that did work, let us know which one you bought.

SCHICK DEAL
No problem there, I was able to get my Register Reward for both the razor and the refills. Happy Day! Wish that coupon would come back.

ZARBEE’S
If you buy the Zarbee’s, check your box for a $1/1 coupon that you can use on your next purchase. Not all the boxes had it but one of the two I purchased did. Yay!

MENTOS UP2U GUM
The coupon in the October coupon book is not working at all. It’s either not in the system or not in the system properly. So, I would hold off on this deal until they can fix it, hopefully before the end of the week. If you are following my Walgreens Shopping Scenario, just take out the gum. It won’t impact the rest of your transaction at all.

Let us know how your shop went and if you found any great deals! :-)

I tried the Theraflu and UP2U gum this morning and neither worked. My cashier and the manager in SE Decatur were so nice and tried to be helpful, but when the computer system is screwed up there isn’t much they can do. It seems that there are more and more computer mess-ups at Walgreens lately. They don’t carry the Remington razor that is on sale yet. Spent a frustrating hour and 15 minutes at Walgreens, but did good in the end. Love my Walgreens!!!!

This was my biggest Wags haul yet, and I’m pretty happy! The gum coupon wasn’t working, but my favorite cashier adjusted things anyway to make the deal work. The Theraflu didn’t print, but the manager scanned a different variety and that printed my RR. Only downside was no Colgate Optic – I went to 5 different Wags (yeah, I have no life) and none of them had any!

my store was out of everything by 9:30am when i arrived. cleared out of softsoap, zarbee’s & that razor was never in stock either. very frustrating morning also. (the lady in front of me had just finished clearing the shelves of all toothpastes).

The remington razors are not with the other razors. Our store had them in front of the cosmetic register.

The UP2U gum coupon from the October book is now working. I was at my store at 7am this morning and it wasn’t working, but I stopped in again after church and now it is.

Also, if you buy the W brand Maxi pads 14 or 24 count – watch for a $.50 walgreens catalina coupon you can use on your next purchase – making it a moneymaker! And even better, if you use that coupon, you still get another one! (aka it “rolls”) I also got a $1.00 of W brand 28 count or higher on my first transaction, but after starting to use the $.50 one that I got from the 2nd, I continued to get that one or the next two transactions. I got a total of 4!! And its a Walgreens coupon so if for some reason another doesn’t print, the cashier doesn’t need to keep it!

Reply

Jen September 25, 2011 at 1:55 pm

Oh and my store had no spot for the Remington razor on the shelf, but I found two full displayers of them all the way up on the overhead top shelf. Some stores probably have them on the cosmetics tables or possibly in the stockroom. If you don’t see them, as the Beauty Advisor if she can check for a display of them in the back for you!

AND…the code on the W Maxi Pads ANY size is 2312 :)

nell September 25, 2011 at 8:10 pm

Thanks Jen! What state are you in? I just tried the up2u an hour ago and it still didnt work : p

I’m wondering if each individual store has to solve the coupon booklet on their own or if all stores will be fixed soon. Anyone know?

Reply

tasha September 25, 2011 at 1:51 pm

I did the mentos up 2 u gum this morning and it worked just fine. I’m in NY so i dont know if this is fixed yet or it’s just my area.

Reply

lorrie September 25, 2011 at 1:51 pm

i purchased the theraflu warming caplets and had no problem getting the RR. so if someone wants those instead hopefully it’ll work for them. i also had a wonderful cashier who adjusted the price of the mentos to .50 each as she was ringing them up since she already knew the wag q wasnt working. HTH

jan September 25, 2011 at 1:54 pm

For Theraflu, mine didn’t print either for this particular one, however, I had another kind (warming syrup) and the manager was nice enough to ring those two up twice and I received 2 RR. But yes this particular item didnt print the $5 RR

Reply

jessy September 25, 2011 at 2:02 pm

I made the mistake of getting the lipton theraflu… and didn’t realize i didn’t get my RR until I got home from the store…. :(
oh well… an already sweet deal a little less sweeter.

If you scan your receipt. They will send you a register reward in the mail. Contact coupon@catalinamarketing.com

I didn’t notice I was missing the reward until I read Christie’s Updates. Thanks so much!!

Reply

Mary September 25, 2011 at 2:02 pm

OK, so apparently the UP2U is working now according to a previous post. Question…this deal is kind of like the expo marker deal I did a few weeks ago with in ad q, booklet q and manufacturer q. What order do I give them in so that it works right? I wasn’t able to get the markers free since the gum is 99cents instead of $1 even, I am thinking it will work like the markers did for me?

Reply

Jen September 25, 2011 at 2:11 pm

If you have nothing else in the transaction, then they should adjust the price of the coupon down to $.98 instead of $1.00 and it doesn’t really matter what order you give them. But if you are purcashing other things in the same transaction, just hand them in this order.

1.) Manufacturer coupon ($1/2)
2.) Walgreens October coupon book coupon ($1/2)
3.) In ad Coupon (to make them $.99 each)

This order avoids the whole issue of having to adjust the coupon (which cashiers seem to fear) and everything goes through without beeps.

Reply

Mary September 25, 2011 at 2:16 pm

Thank you so much for responding. Guess I will drive back to town today to get my gum. I hope the book coupon really is working now.

Reply

lilly September 25, 2011 at 2:05 pm

For the lipton theraflu the store manager prompted a RR using a schick razor because he knew it wasn’t going to print for the theraflu. What a nice guy huh? So, I got all the RR coming to me. Today was an AWESOME couponing day at wags!

Can I do 6 up2u gum. Will the wags coupon take $3 off??????

Reply

Jen September 25, 2011 at 2:13 pm

Yes the coupon from the October savings book will take of $3 if you buy 6. Don’t forget to also use the coupon from the ad to bring the price down to $.99, or $.49 after the october book coupon.

Reply

Jodi September 25, 2011 at 2:27 pm

There is also the $1/2 Up2U gum coupons… making them FREE!

Trish September 25, 2011 at 2:19 pm

The ad limits to 4 … and my WAGS is strict about it.

Reply

couponcj September 25, 2011 at 3:57 pm

I’m wondering if the computer will only give you the .99 price for the first 4 and then the others will be regular price. I’d do the additional 2 in another transaction.

Reply

Brenda September 25, 2011 at 4:39 pm

I don’t believe you should have any issues with the coupon if you buy six. It will depend store to store if they stick to the limit noted. My local stores have always said if you leave some for others and want 2 or 3 more, no problem.
Another thing to note, I live in one of the test markets where we have “clipless” ad coupons (register has the sale prices and we don’t have to use the coupon). I was afraid when we went to this new program that it would only give the sale price for the limit in the ad, but it doesn’t do that. It still gives the in-ad price for however many I buy.

Reply

Kelly September 25, 2011 at 2:12 pm

I went to my Wags at 8 a.m. when they opened and the UP2U booklet coupon wasn’t working either. I did purchase the Daytime and Nightime Theraflu on two separate transactions and both RR printed for each. My store was well stocked and had the Remington Razor and W maxi pads out. The Zarbee’s I got did not have any peelies (darn) but I had my own IP. :)

yoli September 25, 2011 at 2:14 pm

I have about 8 RR. If I use them all in one trasanction, to buy multiple items that are offering RR this week will the new RR print? Last week the manager told me that I had used a lot of coupons and RR and maybe this is why 1 RR did not print. Does anyone know if there is a limit of RR that can be used per transaction to make sure current RR print? Hope my question makes sense!

Reply

Lisa September 25, 2011 at 4:04 pm

There’s no limit, you just can’t use a RR from the same brand/maker as a new item you are wishing to generate another RR for.

Reply

Stephanie September 25, 2011 at 2:15 pm

I tried the Theraflu deal and the manager told me you can’t get a register reward if you use a coupon on the product. That is incorrect. My previous transation was for the razor where I used the $5.00 coupon and got the $5.00 reward.

Ashley September 25, 2011 at 2:23 pm

I’ve been annoyed all morning b/c they didn’t take the oct. book coupon for my gum. Then, to top it off, I looked at the receipt and realized she didn’t scan the Zarbee coupon. I’m glad to hear it wasn’t just me for the gum deal at least. If I go back do you think they’ll give me credit for the coupons they missed?

Olga N September 25, 2011 at 2:24 pm

I was at the store early this morning and RR didn’t print because I got that Theraflu. The manager was nice, he tried to get it to print and after 2 attempts just gave me Wags gift card with $5 on it.

I purchased the Theraflu Regular Sachets (not the Lipton) and my $5 RR printed fine. Our store did not have the Zarbees :( Boo, but I did grab everything else I needed – and saved a total of 97% Today – my best score EVER! I was so excited about my great buys that I wrote a post about my savings on my blog today :) I hope others have such great luck!

Reply

Jenn September 25, 2011 at 2:26 pm

I also bought both the Theraflu Lipton and the Theraflu warming caplets. The Warming caplets printed with no problem and obviously the Lipton didn’t. I have to go back to the first store because I didn’t realize it until I left but at the other store, I had gotten both so the manager just scanned those again to trigger the $5RR. Its so frustrating when you have everything planned out to a T and then Walgreen’s computers just have a mind of their own!!

Reply

Amy September 25, 2011 at 2:32 pm

My RR printed out on the theraflu with no problem. I did not get the Lipton one. I got another kind and it had a $3.00 off 2 coupon right on the front of the box! Score!

I got that one too. I first got the regular Shick Quatro, but the next time I went back I looked at the other one. The Shick Quatro System that is a trimmer as well and asked to price check. It was ringing up $8.99, used the $5 cp and got back $5 for a MM.

i got 2 of those theraflus you pictured, didn’t work. my manager refunded me $5.
I got 2 theraflu warming liquids as well, those worked.

up2u gum not working at all. I paid the extra $0.50 on each package, then manager refunded me for that. That was how the manager wanted to handle that LOL So I just went with it.

There is a $2 off of zantac in the booklet. Its not working. Zantac 24 count is on sale $7.99 – $5 IP and $2 wags q= $0.99 per box!

My schick mens did not work, but the only one they had was the titanium w bonus refils. It rang sale price so, manager refunded me $5.

The renu sensitive, is only the single bottle not the bonus packs with the free 4oz (even though its on sale). They would not refund me for that, so I just returned it.

You should be able to go back to the store with your missed coupons and receipt and get credited for them. Also mention the RR that didn’t print, they should give that to you also.

Reply

Sandy September 25, 2011 at 2:52 pm

My Theraflu purchase didn’t work either. I tried to buy two of the Lipton Theraflu with two of the $2/1 cpns. The item was tagged as giving $5 register rewards as well as being pictured in the ad. The manager said it was because I didn’t spend $10 on it because of the cpns. So I had her void it, picked up a third box, used one of the coupons plus the $3/2 cpn on the box itself, which was exactly $10 but it still wouldn’t give a register reward. The manager issued me a $5 gift card instead, which is better than a register reward really – I just wish it had been for the two items instead of the three!

She did tell me they often have problems on the first day of a sale so maybe it will be fixed later in the week.

I spend a total of 3 hours in my walgreens. Maybe 1 hour shopping…I like to take my time checking out everything looking for deals LOL But 2 hours checking out/waiting for everything to get fixed ect. It was a nightmare. Hubby even called to ask if i was ok cuz it took so long.

Amanda September 25, 2011 at 2:54 pm

GUM- My stores (love the girl in Pocatello,ID) adjusted each pack of gum to .49 cents for me and then I used the manuf. q.

SCHICK- The one with the refills doesnt print the RR, so she seperately rang up one of the womens to get the RR to print, and then voided that transaction, but gave me the RR.

And neither of my stores got ANY of the Colgate TP :0(

2 Colgate optic toothpaste
1 Milk
6 UP2U
5 Balance Bar
Few candies as fillers
Retail price = 99.49
OOP = 19.79 + 7.75% TAX, Previous RR Used = 11$, RR in hand after all purchases = 29$

Dina September 25, 2011 at 2:57 pm

At one of my Wag’s this morning, all the internet coupons beeped. I didn’t do the Theraflu, but my Zarabee’s, Schick and Brita coupons all beeped. Fortunately the Cranky Cashier that works there on Sunday is cranky in the way that she just hates everything, so she does a cursory check and puts coupons through. She’s still cranky about it, but it’s better than rejecting them.

At my other Wag’s I did the Zarabee’s and the Balance bar and got some of the Fantastik RR deal with some coupons and nothing beeped. And the (young, male) cashier asked before we started if I wanted to do multiple transactions! I didn’t need to, but I’ve never had someone do that before. I guess he’s seen couponers before and he’s just a young guy and doesn’t care, so he is mellow about it.

Reply

Dina September 25, 2011 at 2:58 pm

Oh, I wanted to add – the Brita pitchers are on sale for 10 dollars, there is a $5/1 coupon through the website. There is also a $10 rebate available. Not sure if I’m going to get $5 or $10, but either way – free pitcher!

Tina Rogers September 25, 2011 at 2:59 pm

I did the thera flu deal. It would not print, however, I showed them the pic in the paper and read what it said. Instead of worrying about the RR, the manager told the cashier to take $5.00 off of one of my other items. Worked out fine for me! If it had of been the other manager in the store, this would not have happened!

Reply

denise September 25, 2011 at 3:01 pm

Thanks for the post about the Theraflu. I just got home from Walgreens and was trying to sort out the gum mess and didn’t even realize that I did not get the $5 RR. I wasn’t going to worry about the extra 99 cents that I paid(in error!) for the gum, but not getting $5 is definitely worth a return trip!

About the Colgate Optic White deal – do not buy 1 toothbrush and 1 toothpaste – it won’t give you the $6RR, but only $2RR. It happened to me today, and the manager spent lots of time trying to redo the whole thing. She was surprised too, as usually those deals allow to mix toothpaste and toothbrush together. We were able to redo the transaction, although in the process I lost both coupons. Fortunately, there was and EXTREME COUPONER at the store who gave me 2 of her (MANY) coupons. So it worked after all, but with all the fixing, redoing etc – took way too much time.

Reply

Melissa September 25, 2011 at 7:11 pm

I was able to get one toothbrush and one toothpaste for the Colgate in one transaction with no problem today. My register reward printed for it. I wonder why yours didn’t work? The gum didn’t work for me though. I went this morning at 8:30 central time.

I bought Theraflu Daytime Severe cold & cough and Theraflu Flu & sore throat and got the $5.00 RR. I did have a coupon for buy 2 get $3.00 off and the coupon beeped so I had to get a laffy taffy to add to the order. She said since the coupon was for 2 items it counted as a coupon for each item. I had paid with a RR so I had two coupons in hand with 3 items. So I learned something!

They were out of the Colgate by 9 am in my area. I unfortunately bought the Theraflu that doesn’t produce a Register Reward. Oh well. I haven’t tried this deal yet but I’ve had no problem in the past using two store coupons and a manufacture coupon. The softsoap bodywash is $3. Use the 2.00/2 Wags coupon from the October booklet. Use the 1.00/1 Sofsoap coupon from the beauty booklet and use the 1.00/1 manufacture coupon. I hope this all works. I’ve done this twice before with no problems. It should work out to free! Wish me luck.

stacia September 25, 2011 at 4:27 pm

I used the IVC in the Oct book on the soft soap too, along with $1/2 manufactures coupon and didn’t get the RR for the soap. :( Didn’t realize it until I got home.
Theraflu didn’t print for the Lipton ones, Manager rang different ones and it printed, so he gave me that one.

Reply

margaret September 25, 2011 at 5:11 pm

on the soft soap, its $3 each…
buy 2, pay $6
use $2/2 wags book q
use 2 $1/1 soft soap from beauty book (it says MQ on it, so can you still use the MQ .75/1 9/25/11????
it would work out to about $.25 per bottle but you would have to turn in your beauty book coupons?
Im confused, but i want to try it since im heading to wags tonight

AMBER O September 25, 2011 at 3:46 pm

IN CENTRAL INDIANA THE WALGREENS MANAGER INFORMED ME THAT IF IT SAYS A $10 PURCHASE YOUR TOTAL OUT OF POCKET HAS TO BE $10 FOR THE REWARD TO PRINT.. FOR EXAMPLE MY FIRST ORDER TOTALED OUT TO BE 3.52 RR DID NOT PRINT FOR THE THERAFLU…SO I TRIED IT AGAIN FOR MY NEXT ORDER BECAUSE IT WAS A BIGGER ORDER..MY TOTAL WAS $17.56 THE RR PRINTED OUT THAT TIME….THANK GOD WE NEEDED A FEW EXTRA THINGS THIS WEEK SO THAT I COULD GET IT TO PRINT MY RR OFF… ITS CONFUSING AND FRUSTRATING SEEMS THAT EVERY STORE IS DIFFERENT (EVEN THE TWO I GO TO HERE) SEEMS THEY WOULD HAVE THE SAME POLICIES?? I STILL DID REALLY GOOD USING RR FROM LAST WEEK AND MATCHING THEM WITH THIS WEEKS DEALS TO GET MORE RR… STILL FEEL SICK THAT I LOST MY FIRST $5.00 THOUGH… SORRY TO VENT SO MUCH… I FEEL A LITTLE BETTER NOW!!!! THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO FOR US YOU ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED.. I READY DAILY SOMETIME 5 OR SIX TIMES A DAY!!!!

Reply

Lisa September 25, 2011 at 4:14 pm

Um that’s not true about the $10 out of pocket to print a RR. Your store is misinformed. I many times do transactions for just one item where the OOP is much lower and the RR prints. If it doesn’t print, it’s a problem with their system. Call corporate if you miss any RR’s, and also mention what they told you at your store.

I had my cashiers price modify the gum to $0.50 so it would be FREE after my coupons. Also, I did purchase Theraflu and did get my $5 RR. I bought the Daytime and Nighttime Cold and Cough.

I bought 2 Theraflu 6pks that pictured above in this post and it DID print $5RR after two $2/1 coupons I used. I am just puzzled why it’s not working for everyone else. But my gum deal didn’t work. I ended up paying 50 cents for two.

I am not sure if it was posted anywhere here that W Maxis are MM as they print $.50/1 of any pads coupon (no size restriction) along with the $2RR. And Balance bar cookie dough flavor ring up at $1.50 and produce $1.60 RR.

Samantha September 27, 2011 at 11:39 am

My balance bar rang up for $1.50, too, and produced a $1.60 RR. To anyone who bought them, I noticed that mine had a code inside the wrapper that I entered on their website for a free reward. Mine was $15 off a $75 purchase at Foot Locker. I don’t really need that, but maybe you have a code inside yours that will produce a reward you can use!

The Up2U gum coup from the oct. book did not work for me. But i still did pretty well. Here’s what i got in 4 transactions:
2 Zarbees
2 Walg Maxi pads
2 colgate optic white toothpaste
2 Balance bars
1 Shick Quattro razor system
1 Remington King of shaves razor system
2 Up2U gum
3 Reeses peanut butter crunch bars (fillers)
64 oz bottle Xcel liquid fabric softener
Walg ultra 9 roll toilet paper
4 caramels (fillers)
Total out of pocket was $16.12 with a $2 RR left for next time.
I have 2 more schick Quattro $5 MC so I’ll try later in the week. If they have any left, I’ll get 2 more with 2 more $5 RR.

Lisa September 25, 2011 at 4:07 pm

Everything worked perfectly for me. I did 7 transactions and all my RR printed, no problem. I ended up with a $10 profit in the end and came home with almost $100 worth of products. I also love that my Walgreens is SLOW about getting their signs up so most of the RR and sale items aren’t even marked when I go shopping Sunday afternoon. Makes it super easy for me to get everything on my list. My store also had a ton of the Remington razors. They had a few in the regular razor spot and also a bunch on an endcap. Also, the Schick cartridge deal also includes the sensitive variety. I took a gamble hoping the RR would print on them as they didn’t have enough of the regular ones (I had 7 coupons). So excited! Oh, and any of my surplus always gets donated to my local foodshelf, I don’t have a giant garage filled with stuff. :)

Lindsey September 25, 2011 at 4:19 pm

I did the Zarbees, W Pads, Remington, Schick, and Colgate deal. Everything worked perfectly!

My store limits 1 of the same RR item per person per day. It was frustrating when I firs started couponing since it is 20 minutes from my house. I love it now though because there is still RR products a few days into the week. No 1 person takes a boatload of items.

And if I am really wanting the deal I go at about 8 am and then about 6 pm. Different shifts :)

OH! I found Align Probiotic 2 week “starter kits” on clearance for 5.99. If you are lucky enough to have the $5 off coupons you could stock up. My Wags doesnt allow coupons on clearance items but they make a few of their own rules so hopefully someone can do the deal.

Did anyone try the Colgate Optic $6RR deal? My coworker bought one toothpaste and one toothbrush, used a manufacturer coupon for each and the register reward did not print for her. She’s completely new to couponing and did not know what to do, she thought she had done something wrong and came back to work to share her sad story. Unfortunately I’m stuck @ work for another 3hrs so I can’t go out and try the deal myself just yet. Thanks everyone in advance for any feedback…Val

Hey there Val,

I just successfully did the deal at my local Walgreens. Make sure that she had the right items because while I was shopping, I did see someone grab the 5.8 oz boxes and I advised them that the RR was for the 4 oz ones only.

I bought two of the 4 oz toothpastes and a Yardley Bar Soap (filler item), used two manufacturer coupons, and a $3 RR from the previous week. Everything went smoothly and I did receive the $6 RR.

And also tell that for future reference, she can politely ask a manager to void the transaction. That way, she won’t get stuck with a crummy deal!

The checker was so nice to help me get the deal and I thanked her, I understand it is a bit of work to figure out the deal and get the savings and it is both stressful for both parties so I try to be thankful for their patience with me.

Val September 26, 2011 at 5:19 am

Thank you for all your replies. As it turns out my coworker did nothing wrong after all, we went back to the store and spoke to the manager who informed us that the catalina machine had been acting up all morning and printing RR “only when it felt like it”. He rerang the transaction on another register and gave my relieved and extreamly nervous coworker her first RR plus a $5 wag-giftcard for her inconvenience, awesome! He was a really nice young man. That was quite the experience for a first-timer and she’s now hooked! :) …Val

I did the Theraflu deal and bought the Lipton boxes and didn’t get the $5RR so I asked the lady at the register and she got help they tried the box and it did not work so one of the ladies brought the other box and it worked and I got the $5RR Again they were so helpful in getting me the savings I still got the Lipton which I had the $2 coupon for so I got both for 50 cents. I understand these deals call for some patience and I know it’s got to be hard for them too but in the end the savings is worth it.

About half of the stores I went to this morning didn’t have the deals advertised, so I asked the cashiers at all of them, and they just told me that most likely the manager had just not put up the signs yet. Some are a bit quicker than others, so make sure to ask because they most likely have the deal going already. Hope this helps!

I’m in SF and always hesitate and often miss out on great deals because I don’t see them advertised in the weekly ads or on the shelves. I do ask employees to check for me but they often don’t know either. It’s hard to demand a RR that doesn’t print out when you don’t have any proof that you were supposed to get one! I wish there was a way to know for sure if the deal is nation wide or regional.

The trick to Theraflu is that they have to get over $10. My cashier tried multiple time ans was going to have me fill out the form to send in for RR . As a last resort, she scanned it 3X ( I got one of each pictured in the ad) and it finally spit out the reward). Then, she deducted the extra item.

Hi Christy! Thet told me at my Walgreens the reason the Mentos IVC coupon wasn’t working was because the coupon says can not be used with any other offer. On the Maxi Pad deal they rang up b1g1 half off with the 50 cents off coupon it made for a good deal Happy couponing. P.S. I’m from WI

I was able to get my store manager to issue me $5 in store credit for the Theraflu deal. I showed the manager the picture in the ad which clearly matched up for the RR. He tried running two Theraflu products through the cash register without the coupon and the RR did not print, either. So he issued me $5 in credit for my first purchase and then had the cashier run the second transaction by adjusting the Theraflu down to $2.50 each and I was allowed to use the $2.00 coupon to bring it down to $0.50.

I also live in Northern California – but did have the Zarbees, W-maxi and Remington deal in the ad. My Walgreens often does not have a sign up for every item. But they put up what they are sent…

I tried the Theraflu Warming Relief Severe Cold & Cough (one daytime and one nighttime) 8.3 oz liquid and the Warming Relief Multi Symptom Cold 24 caplets (2 boxes) – did in two trans and got RR for both. I also had $2 off Warming Relief specifically for each… Awesome!

My Walgreens also still has the Energizer batteries (lithium) with the codes on them to get the $10 gas card. So super deal there, too.

This was a big week! I did Zantac, Theraflu, Optic, Quattro, Remington, Zarbees(moneymaker), Renu(had coupons so free, too), Energizer, Balance Bars (had coupon so money maker), Haribo (39cents with extra coupon), W-Maxi…and lots of Hunts Tomato Sauce as my filler – as they didn’t have the party accessories in yet. :)

You should not take the coupons out of the box BEFORE you have paid fo the item, that is just wrong. Pay for one and then take them out after you have paid for them at the end of Each transaction for the next one.

The Schick RR did not print for me-I bought the men’s Quattro that had 3 razors in it (BTW, it is (9.99 here in Central Florida-NOT 8.99)…I used the $5 off coupon printed last week. It was still cheap but not free. I have 2 Walgreens within 1 mile of my house-the first only had one tube of Optic White…so after my non-Schick RR fiasco I went to the other one and they had TONS of Colgate. I also got the Walgreens pads and it printed out a $2 RR as well as a 50 cent coupon to use in the future. I didn’t try the Gum deal…thank goodness.

Just wanted to give everyone a head’s up about the Schick $5/1 Quattro Razor for Men coupon:

I tried to do the deal at my local WAGS and the coupon did not scan properly, even though the razor I got the exact same one in the picture. It kept saying that there was no matching item present.

Fortunately, the cashier asked her manager who told her that she can manually type the coupon in. So in the end, it worked out.

I went back and the manager gave me a form to send in to get my RR in 6 – 8 weeks :-( Thank goodness there was a problem with my ReNu contact lens solution so they gave me an extra RR for that one to call it even. My friendly cashier also pushed the Up2U coupon through. Thanks for the tip on the Zarbees as well, my boxes had the $1 off good until 2013.

My Mentos gum October Q would not work, but I had already used my manufacturer’s coupons and didn’t want to hold things up, so that wasn’t as good a deal as I had hoped. Since the price goes below $0 only after the in-ad Q, could I have them do the IVC Q first and if it goes through then do my manufacturer’s Qs and finish with the in-ad? Also, I noticed that the coupon in my Zarbees box said it was for syrup. Could I use that on this week’s deal, or do these packets count as something different?

Reply

Christina September 25, 2011 at 11:31 pm

Yes, you can use the Zarby’s on the packets. I did so today when I went back to walgreen’s I got 2 more Zarby’s using the coupons inside the first two Zarby’s I bought.

Mary September 26, 2011 at 1:39 am

I’m confused about the Mentos deal this week. I thought Walgreens policy says that you can use one Manufacturer and one store coupon. If you use the in-ad coupon and the booklet coupon, isn’t that two Walgreens store coupons? I tried the deal today and they only let me use the manufacturer coupon and the in ad coupon, so I ended up paying 50 cents a pack. I really hope someone can help me with this one because I would like to stock up on gum because I have a few coupons.

Regarding the Mentos UP2U gum issue:

After spending almost half an hour at my favorite Walgreens, the cashier and the manager finally figured out how they will process my 40 coupons.

At first, I had:
2x $1/2 MQs
1x $1/2 WQ (Booklet)
1x .99 each in ad Q

No MATTER what, the in-ad Q will force the items to be .99, so price modifying the items will cause the system to STILL change it back to .99 each. My total kept coming out to 1.96 for the four gums.

The manager and cashier fixed it by doing this:
1. Change gum price to 1.00 each DO NOT scan in-ad coupon.
2. 1.00 gum price x the # of gums you have
3. Scan MQs
4. Scan October Booklet Q
5. Total should be 0.00

Hope this helps!

I did amazing at Walgreens this week which is really a suprise the RR usually really messes me up! But here is what happened I ended up getting the pads, of course Zarbee’s, Zantac .99, the schick razor, the softsoap for $1each no RRs, the Thera Flu did not print for me so the manager just price modified the contact solution down from 7.99-1.00MFR + 5.00 RR and so I only paid $1 cash and recieved the $5 or $6 RR for it! I also ended up getting the Mentos the coupon would not work that was in the October booklet so for my troubles they saw the large amount of coupons I had so they ended up letting me get 8 packs totally fre(paid only tax in NC) for the trouble, and one more thing I got for free was the Vicks Vapo drops I have finally found them after weeks and weeks of looking for them! I also ended up getting the Remmingtion Razor $4.99-$4.99RR=FREE & the Hairbo candy for I think thirty cent each(X2)!!! Last but not least I used some Wheel of Fortune 75% games as a few fillers they were $10.00 and I got them for $2.50 I usually do not use fillers that cost that much but I can gift them and save $25-$50 bucks for a co-workers child! Then I bought 8 Reseces Marshmallow Candy 2 pack as fillers for the rest of my stuff that was only .47 ea!!! So all in all I got tons and tons of stuff for only $7.00 cash rolling last weeks RR’s! Oh I also have recieved a $20.00 gift card bc the manager at our 2nd WAGS is horrible or maybe he was having 3bad days in a row, he did not know the coupon policy even though I had it in hand he refused a price adjust (X3) so I asked corpertate to please help him or maybe update him on their policy! HAPPY shopping everyone hope you get wonderful deals! Thanks WILD FOR WAGS!!! I <3 you, you are the only reason I start shopping with WAGS again!!!

The Theraflu did not print a RR with the multi-symptom cold, but did print out with another variety. What they did for me was scanned the variety that did print out the RR and then allowed me to actually purchase the multi-symptom. The total was $10. One rang up as $4.99 and one as $5.01.

Oh! And I wanted to mention that when I bought the W maxi pads, a $1/1 coupon printed out. That means a $1 money maker when I use that coupon this week with the $2 RR.

I tried another Walgreens today for the TheraFlu Deal (which worked for me yesterday but the coupons had to be forced) I had them ring up 2 TheraFlu MultiSymptom and a filler item I used the $6 RR from the Zarbees & 2 of the $2/1 Coupons from the insert. My RR didnt print, the manager came over & redid my sale using a different TheraFlu product to get it to print, but while I was looking at my original receipt I noticed the Zarbees RR is actually an TheraFlu RR when used towards my transaction which may be why (even though different amounts) the RR hasn’t printed for anyone else.

hello everyone! Thanks so much for the great deals at Wags this week, I am doing pretty good at getting the RR’s but I don’t know how to combine them with the RR’s deals if that makes any sense example: How can I pay with the Schick RR for the Colgate Optic deal?? My cashier which is the same one all the time when I go we became friends now lol says we can’t use a RR to get a RR..I guess my question is if I use a filler item I could you use and the RR will print out?? Thanks in advance for your feedback :)

RRs won’t print out only if you use a RR from the same company. You should look at the RR to see what company it mentions. Look at the part where they show the company’s address. Some companies have lots of different brands (like Proctor and Gamble), so you should always look for the address part. As for the filler, you should only need that if you use more coupons (RRs included) than you have items.

Hi,
I tried this also on Sunday ..the Manger at my Wags told me it wont work with coupons, you have to actually spend $10.00 to get the RR.
Someone told me she bought the caplets and it worked.

Reply

Mary September 26, 2011 at 2:44 pm

As far as I know, you just have to make sure the total would be $10 before any Walgreen’s coupons. It should still print when you use the manufacturer’s coupons. If you tried to do the Theraflu deal, I’m guessing the problem was just that you got the Lipton one that was causing everyone problems.

Reply

Melannie September 28, 2011 at 9:02 pm

If you ever have this problem get them to sub total the sale (I ask to check the total) before you apply coupons.

At times when I have read that others are having an issue on a specific product/transaction/scenario I find this solution has worked when I am completing the same transaction. And if you are unsure, get them to try the transaction w/out q’s. That also has often helped me.

With the mentos, I even had my cashier ring up the gum with just the oct coupon book cooupon, and sure enough it wouldnt scan…..so its def an error on walgreens part…not ours. Luckily, 2 cashiers at my walgreens did price adjustments for me so I could use all my coupons

Mary September 26, 2011 at 3:01 pm

My shopping trip yesterday was so frustrating. I had all the issues as everyone is reporting … no Theraflu RR, Mentos q didn’t work, but to top them all were comments coming from the cashiers as I walked into the store as it was just openning. Female cashier told the other she hoped they weren’t going to have ‘thousands of those coupon people’ … she said she ‘wishes to tell them couponers they are not ‘Extreme Couponing’ and need to quit trying to act like it’ … I shrugged it off and decided she was going to be my favorite cashier from now on and will get to process ALL my coupons. Even worse was what the other cashier did as I proceeded to the Razors aisle. He of course agreed with the other cashier and then went and grabbed several razors from the shelf and took them to the back of the store, past key-coded doors where customers are not allowed to go. I was so upset I hurried up and finished my shopping with my ‘favorite cashier’ and left. I knew I would be too upset to even civilly discuss this with any manager. I’m going back today after work to calmly discuss this issue further, AFTER I send an email to Customer Service.

You should complain! Why would Walgreens advertise these deals if they weren’t prepared for people to take advantage of them? Their employees are often rude and obnoxious and I can’t understand why! It’s not like it comes out of their paycheck! If Wags didn’t want to give the deals, they wouldn’t advertise them!!

Reply

Whitney September 26, 2011 at 8:48 pm

That is terrible! I’m so glad my Wags are not like that, where I live there are 6 of them within like 3miles (crazy i know, but lucky for me as I had to keep rolling rr at dif locations) they are all very friendly and congratulate me on my good couponing. Maybe you can find a different location, you can also leave negative feedback on their surveys,

Lauren September 26, 2011 at 3:55 pm

Just wanted to let my fellow couponers know that I got my RR for the Theraflu. Bought two of the 24ct warming capsules, and used 2 $2 off coupons from Theraflu’s website.

I also wanted to make everyone aware that they have a great deal on the Indiana Popcorn in the red bags, and Kettle brand chips. $1 off coupons from this Sunday’s paper, and they are both on sale this week for $1.99. Making them 99 cents each!

Amelia September 26, 2011 at 4:04 pm

All these good deals do come at some expense (i.e. time, effort, thought) don’t they? I went out yesterday morning and was initially VERY frustrated. I tried the Zarabees deal, and it worked perfectly, but then tried the Theraflu deal and it did not work with the Lipton Tea variety. However, many Theraflu varieties had a $3 off or any 2 Theraflu sticker on them, so I took a mental note. I had no problem with the Remington deal, and my cashier did have an issue with the gum, but made it work by adjusting things down. I went back later in the day, and tried the Theraflu deal a second time by using the 24 caplet packs and one of the sticker coupons. It worked great! So, overall, it ended up being a successful day, but it took quite a bit of work!

@sami you can use a RR to buy anything except the same product .

Natasha September 27, 2011 at 2:21 am

But also be careful that it is not the same manufacturer because it does state on the RR that it cannot be used on their items. And even if it goes through, the likelihood of it denying you of your RR is very high.

Reply

Lindsay S. September 26, 2011 at 6:25 pm

I believe the way it works is you can’t buy a product from the same manufacturer. These two products are made by different manufacturers, so that’s fine. However, say for example you bought Tide one week and got a RR, then used it to get Bounce sheets that would also give you RR, it wouldn’t give you another RR after that because they are both made by P&G. Just make sure to check your products when planning your list and scenarios.

I bought 6 Zarbee’s yesterday, in 3 of the boxes there was a $1/1 coupon off “any Zarbee’s ” product. In the other 3 there was a $1 / 1 coupon off Zarbee’s cough syrup.

karen September 26, 2011 at 7:21 pm

the lipton theraflu is not in the system b/c it’s new…the mgr simply used an older variety of theraflu to produce the rr & I kept the green tea version. hth!

Anyone else NOT get the $4 RR from purchasing two SoftSoap body washes?

I also didn’t know about the Oct. Coupon Book $2/2 Wags Q for the body wash until just tonight–bummer!

What 4RR from SoftSoap? I bought 2 and it printed out a $2RR. That’s what it says in the ad.

Reply

Victoria September 26, 2011 at 9:22 pm

Let me correct myself, it wasn’t a $2RR, it was a $2/2 coupon in the Wags Oct. book (that’s what they’re referring to in the ad). I used that, another Wags coupon for $1/1 (used 2 of those), and a manufacturer coupon for $1/2. It cost me $1 (.50 each).

LFmom September 26, 2011 at 9:52 pm

Aha! Thank you. I read the ad way too fast. Either way, I forgot to use the October Coupon Booklet $2/2 coupon.

On Sunday I went to my favorite Walgreens and did transaction 2 and got the 2 colgates, balance bar, 2 bags gummie bears and Zantac with no problems. I orignally grabbed the larger colgate but since there wasn’t a sign I checked the flyer and realized it was the smaller one. They didn’t have them on the shelf but had a display by the cosmetic counter with a few of them. Today I went to my least favorite Walgreens got schick Quattro Cartridges, mentos gum and renu solution. They were out of the Remington Razors so I substituted the Renu solution. They only had one box that advertised a free 4oz bottle and free contact case. When I got home I realized that it wasn’t on sale for 6.99 (rang up 9.99) and I didn’t get the RR so I have to return that. The mentos gum walgreens coupon didn’t work but the cashier pushed it through!

Reply

Chel September 27, 2011 at 12:51 pm

@Aimee

I did the same thing with the “free 4 oz bottle plus case”. It should have been included in the sale since it is a “bonus” box, but mine rang up at 10.89, no RR. It was even in the same slot as the regular solution with no “bonus”.

Latrell September 26, 2011 at 10:14 pm

I went to Wags early and but 1 Zarbee’s product and 3 Domino’s 4 lb sugar ( I had a RC for $2.19 ea).

I used:

$1/1 Zarbee product = $4.99
(3) #0.65/1 Domino’s sugar 4 lb = $4.62

oop = $9.61

Received $5 RR plus $1/1 Zarbee product found inside! WooHoo LOVE IT!

Not only did the Theraflu not print w/OLDER version Theraflu, but management argued w/me and another customer over it and walked away when I tried to pull up coupon policy on my phone! RUDE!!!
ALSO, Softsoap deal did not work to print either….all I got from assistant manager was a finger wagging and “I can’t MAKE it print nothing!”
If I didn’t still have a couple bucks of RR from MaxiPads to spend, I wouldn’t step foot in a Wags!!!

Monica Leal September 27, 2011 at 12:59 am

I had a problem w/the Schick refills at one of my Walgreens…for some reason it was still ringing up at regular price($12.99) and the cashier said if she price modified it I would not get the RR. For the Theraflu w/Lipton…2 of my stores let me do my regular transaction w/the Lipton one. After I’m done they take a different box that is printing the RR, scanning it, let it print the RR, then voiding that one. This way I still get my RR…

Has anyone been able to get the Mentos UP2U gum to work?? I traded high value coupons to be able to get over 20 coupons for them and I can’t afford to buy 2 packs for $1, I am really bummed.

Reply

Jill September 27, 2011 at 1:52 pm

I just spoke with the manager at my Wag’s and she says the reason that the Mentos monthly coupon book coupon won’t work is because corporate purposely turned it off. They didn’t want the price of the gum going to $.49 each (before manu Q). She also said that restriction will be happening a lot more often, in spite of the fact that it’s currently corporate coupon policy to allow stacking of 2 store coupons as long as they are differing amounts.
I suppose they will be changing their coupon policy soon?

dana September 27, 2011 at 4:03 pm

Jill, that makes no sense to me bc I had my cashier try ringing it up (gum at full price) then doing the coupon book coupon and it wouldnt even take that off by itself! grrrrrrr at walgreens!

Reply

Christine Cornelius September 28, 2011 at 12:00 pm

Mine worked, but the cashier told me that they were told to price adjust the gum to .50 each ans then I could use my $1/2 coupon and get the gum for free. I think it depends on your store and the manager. My cashier told me that the other Walgreens probably wouldn’t do the same. So I guess it will be a hit or miss

Which Zarbees did you buy b/c the RR is only on the cough and sleep drink. The box which has the bee sleeping on a purple bed. I bought 2 and they worked for me.

Mary September 27, 2011 at 9:51 pm

Glad some of you are getting the gum. My Walgreens in Decatur wanted me to pay $1.16 for two packs (with tax). the manager on duty said that was the only way she would do it. She charged me the $1.49 they rang up, then took off $1 for the booklet coupon, then scanned the in ad coupon which took off 2 cents and then I could use my manufacturer coupon, but needed a filler. I nicely tried to explain that she could make it work, but she wouldn’t so I very nicely told her she could keep the gum.

Reply

Christine Cornelius September 28, 2011 at 8:17 am

One of the Walgreens in Springfield, MO price adjusted the gum to .50/pack and then I used my $2/1 coupon and got them for free. I did 2 transactions with just the gum and they were free, no tax either. My cashier told me that they (the cashiers) were told to price adjust the gum down to .50 a pieces since there is a issue with the coupon from the booklet. I ended up with 16 packs of gum, gave the cashier 4 of gum couoons and I have 2 to give my coworker so she can score some free gum also.
