Walgreens Updates From the Field 8/12

by Christie on August 12, 2012

Here are some updates from my trip today to help your trip go smoother! :)

SCOPE DEAL: The Scope deal is even better than advertised! The Scope outlast and the Scope Dual Blast that are in the ad for 2/$6 are ringing up B1G1 50% OFF (as part of a monthly price) AND they are printing the $3 Register Reward when you buy (2). After coupons, that makes these FREE! :) The first one rings up for $3 and the second rings up $1.50.

Walgreens Deals
Buy (2) Scope Mouthwash 24 ot 25.4 oz 2/$4.50
(2) $0.75/1 Scope Mouthwash, exp. 8/31/12 (P&G 07/29/12)

Total = $3, Get Back $3 RR
= FREE!

GOOD ‘n NATURAL BARS: These are new to Walgreens but I did find these in my store over by the health products and protein bars. I know some of you aren’t finding these in your stores. Because they are new it’s possible some stores don’t have them yet.

RENEW LIFE: Be sure not to use the $10 RR from the Renew Life 3 Day Diet product from last week to buy the Renew Life Omega Smart this week. They are coded the same way and the $10 Register Reward won’t print.

How did your shop go? What great deals did you find? Let us know!

(Thanks Sharell for the great tip :)!)

I bought the 4 reach toothbrushes for the monthly deal (buy 4, get $4 RR back). They were buy one get one half off. I paid 8.96 for them, -$4 (used 2 $2 off coupons), so $4.96 OOP. The $4 RR didn’t print however, only the $1 RR did. A manager fixed it for me, but just wanted to give a heads up in case others have problems. An awesome deal though, only .24 a toothbrush!

Is it advertised this week in the ad? I don’t know if the manager at my walgreens will print it if it’s not advertised in the ad. :( That’s a great score!

Chelsea August 12, 2012 at 6:29 pm

oops! i see what you’re talking about. i guess it’ll be a ymmv for me! thanks!

Jess August 12, 2012 at 6:34 pm

The register will not print more then 1 of the exact same RR at walgreens. You are better off doing 4 different transactions if you are buying 4 so that you can get the RR of each one. Also, do not use that $1 RR if paying for the next one, it will cancel out the one that is supposed to print, therefore it doesn’t print…Hope this helps :) just remember: different transactions! Good Luck!

I was talking about the following Reach deal, not the weekly one in this weeks ad–hope that helps!

Get $2 RR WYB (2), $3 RR WYB (3) or $4 RR WYB (4) Reach Toothbrushes (Excluding Crystal Clean) (8/6 – 9/2)

I think she is talking about the Catalina that is printing in some stores, here in Southern California is printing at Vons and Albertsons, not sure if Walgreens is participating in the promotion..

Stephanie August 12, 2012 at 5:42 pm

I didn’t get the RR for the Clean shampoo. The manager couldn’t figure out why, and he’s not one that will help couponers out. (He has said to me many times how he hates coupons.)

Reply

Yvette August 12, 2012 at 5:47 pm

The Clear RR did not print for me either. The manager said it was a known problem with “the company” so I’m not sure if she meant with Clear or with Catalina. Luckily I shop at one of the more helpful Walgreens, and she gave me a $2 refund on a W card, which is fine by me.

I picked up two of the Scope whitening ones and they worked for the deal. Got my $3RR for that one just fine. Also got two of the Good n Natural bars, but I brought them home for my husband and myself to taste, and we really did not like the taste. Some people may like them, some might not. At least they were free!

ashley August 12, 2012 at 6:04 pm

the lemon flavored good n natural bar tastes like pledge

lisa August 12, 2012 at 6:24 pm

Interesting – I’ve never tasted pledge so I couldn’t say… ;)

ashley August 12, 2012 at 6:31 pm

me neither lol just what i imagine it would taste like it smells

jan August 12, 2012 at 7:16 pm

I like the way Pledge tastes. Sniffing it is an acquired taste though (j/k in case the young ones are reading this)

I’ve heard the $3 Scope RR is rolling as well. If anyone tries it, let us know! I might try it tonight.

Does anyone know if the Dove clinical deodorant is included in the 4/$15.00 with the $5 rr?

Went to pick up the omegas today, but the rr did not print. She had to adjust my receipt. That was ok

Clear didn’t print for me either, manager gave me $2 cash.
I only bought crest and glide floss, didn’t get any Scope…now I will have to go back! :)
My store only had the Cranberry Almond bars. My son and I tried them. We didn’t like them!

Crystal August 12, 2012 at 9:46 pm

Has anyone had trouble with using a coupon for item that you will be receiving a RR for. For example, this morning, I tried purchasing Revlon nail polish. I had a $1 coupon on any Relvon nail polish & the register wouldn’t take it. The manager said it’s probably because I’ll be receiving a RR on it. This has happened before with other products in the past couple of weeks.

Reply

kelly August 13, 2012 at 9:51 am

That is definitely not the case. Did you have the same number of items as you did coupons/RRs?

Reply

jennifer August 13, 2012 at 10:09 am

I have had this same problem the last few weeks. The manager at my store told me that some manufacturers are now blocking the RR from printing if you use a coupon with it. I have had this happen at 2 different stores and told the same thing at each one.

Reply

Pam August 13, 2012 at 10:09 am

Revlon coupons are notorious for beeping, especially on nail polish. This is the case at ALL stores.

Reply

michelle August 12, 2012 at 10:07 pm

May someone please clarify what rolling means, as far as rr rolling? Thanks in advance!

Reply

Jamie August 12, 2012 at 10:30 pm

Rolling is when a rr can be used on the same product over and over and each time it produces another rr….usually if a rr prints on a certain product and you buy the same product and use the rr another one won’t print out…
Hope it helped!

Reply

Susan August 12, 2012 at 10:33 pm

Michelle ~ rolling means you can use the RR from the previous purchase to buy it again and also get the RR. This doesn’t work usually. Don’t do it unless Christie says it is working. And then it is usually only the first day. They fix them quickly.

I went to 2 Wags and got 2 bottles of Super Krill and 4 bottles of Scope. I only had 2 coupons for the Scope but thought that .75 a bottle was pretty good on the second set.

I think that the person above who bought way too much stuff is new. You don’t need that much stuff. Save some for others.

I spent about $16 out of pocket, used $7 in RR’s and ended up with $23 in RR’s! So all was basically free.

Reply

Kent August 12, 2012 at 11:17 pm

I thought you only NEEDED to buy 2 Scope to get the RR.

Reply

kelly August 13, 2012 at 9:51 am

She may have just wanted 4 :) you do only need 2.

Reply

Kent August 13, 2012 at 11:40 am

That was my point. The person that buys 4, scolds the person that buys 10. I almost never shop until after Monday morning. Then I will buy what I think is the right amount, and I have a lot of those coupons.

Reply

michelle August 12, 2012 at 11:44 pm

Awesome! Thank you so much for your help. :)

Thanks for posting about this,I’m gonna go back to Walgreen’s and get some Scope.I went earlier today just to get some super cheap school supplies.

Diane August 12, 2012 at 11:11 pm

I did the Omega, Gillette Fusion, Revlon nail polish, Prilosec, and Irish Spring bw deals. I still had (2) 1.00 Irish Spring bw qs that we got inside the Colgate toothpaste several months ago. I also had (2) .75/2 Milky Way printables left; used them with the .59 Mars candy in-ad q. I had a single .70 q for the Frosted Flakes that are on sale for 1.99. I arrived at 9:00 a.m. and the cereal was all gone:( I used the .29 5-pack mechanical pencils as my fillers today.

Diane August 12, 2012 at 11:13 pm

Oh, and I think I’ll have to see if there is any Scope left later this week!

di August 12, 2012 at 11:29 pm

Thanks so much for these Update from the Field! I always look for it on Sundays. Makes things go much smoother when someone has already tried the deals.

Kathy August 12, 2012 at 11:29 pm

Did anyone have trouble with the Ensure sale? I tried buying the 6 pack regular Ensure vanilla flavored and it rang up $9.99 not the $7.99 that it was advertised in the ad. The manager told me that the original had been discontinued. I think she’s wrong.

Reply

Chelsea August 13, 2012 at 12:03 am

ZERO Omega at my store. Not surprised. :( hopefully later in the week there will be some!

Deb August 13, 2012 at 12:15 am

I need some scope! My home needs some mouthwash I haven’t shipped wags in a while since I’m on my last trimester of pregnancy it’s super exhausting to just shop

@Christie, thanks for keeping us updated from the field. I’ve been following your blog for quite some time now and I appreciate all the tips. I also appreciate everyone else’s postings about their personal updates from the field. :)

I’ve never commented, but what I’m wondering is if those who are posting negative remarks or rude comments, if they realize how tacky and ignorant they sound. Who cares if there’s a mistake in the calculation, is it really necessary to be rude about it? Also, who cares if someone is new or if they want to stock up.

Anyways, sorry for the rant, but I just get tired of all the negative remarks…I enjoy following this blog to get the scoop on good deals, not for drama. This is supposed to be a happy place! Thanks again!!! :)

Linda August 13, 2012 at 1:00 am

I did four transactions of the scope. The first two went smoothly (price rang up BOGO 50% off and I got the rr). Ten minutes later when I tried the next two, the price rang up BOGO 50% off, but I did not receive the rr. I talked to the manager, he thought it was because I was not being charged the right price (even though it worked the first two times). I returned the items on the last two transactions because two for six with coupons and rr is a better deal. Has anyone else had problems with rr now.

Reply

Maria O. August 13, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Hey Linda: if you did your transactions after midnight (bt 12:00-12:30) usually RR’s didn’t print, they said the Catalina system is updating. I never, never never do transactions involving RR’s at that time.

Crystal August 13, 2012 at 9:07 am

Has anyone had this problem, the register will not accept a manufacture coupon when there’s a RR on the product? This has happened a couple of times. For instance, yesterday, I wanted to purchase Revlon nail polish – on sale for $4.99, I had a $1 manufacture coupon and I know there was a $3.00 RR. The register wouldn’t accept the coupon. I spoke to the manager & he said if there’s a RR sometimes it won’t take the coupon.

Reply

Bobbi Jean August 13, 2012 at 9:44 am

Ive had the register not accept a coupon on a RR product. Luckily for me, there are a few coupon friendly cashiers that just manually enter the coupon. “Its because you used a coupon on it” is the response Ive gotten, but pfffft.

Reply

Pam August 13, 2012 at 10:14 am

As I stated above: Revlon coupons are notorious for beeping, especially on nail polish. This is the case at ALL stores.

It has nothing to do with whether there is a RR for the item or not. It is because there is a problem with Revlon coupons theirselves–it beeps at Target and CVS most of the time, too. They are kind of a pain to use.

Reply

Sarah August 13, 2012 at 10:31 pm

That isn’t why the coupon wouldn’t work, those reckon coupons for nail polish aren’t coded right they never go through. I used to think the revlon coupon that says color cosmetics wasn’t for the nail polish because it always beeped, but most often now they have that wording with nail polish pictured.

Can I use the $3.00 Scope RR on the Fushion Razor deal? They are both P&G products. I’m thinking I can.

Yes you should be able to. They are separate deals

Its advertised 2/$6.00 when you buy scope, crest , oral-b toothbrush or glide floss.. If i buy (1) bottle of scope and (1) glide floss will it print the $3.00 RR or do I have to buy 2 of the same product?

This deal is still working!!! I can’t beleive it. I did 3 transactions for the scope for a total of 6 and the same with the toothpaste. I didn’t know you had to have a filler though but luckly the cashier was very friendly. I found $.29 mini highlighters and I still have one $3 RR left to use. They have the Glade Sense and Sprays on sale for around $4.57 and with the $2 off coupon from this Sundays paper and the $3 RR woud make it free, so how would this work? Will I get paid overage (like Wal-Mart) or should I get something else? Here is what I was planning on doing:

Glade SS $4.57
minihighlighter $.29
$2 off Glade SS from 8/12
$3 RR
How will this work?? Thanks everyone, newbie here!!

i looked for the good ‘n natural bars in the vitamin section but ended up finding them in front of the cashiers. if anyone is following weight watchers – these bars equal 6 points each! yikes – picked one up anyway and on my way back to work, crossed a young girl with a dog asking for food & $ – i assumed that she was a “traveler” and handed off my bar to her. hopefully, my coupon karma is even. :)

Reply

Maria V August 16, 2012 at 6:30 am

I bought the scope whitening and I noticed a sticker on it then I tooked it off and it said we would like for you to be one of the first to know that scope is no longer going to be sold within the next couple of months. So it had a coupon for $1.50 any size crest rinse. I guess they are going to be discontinuing it.

Reply

Pam August 16, 2012 at 4:20 pm

This deal is still rolling. Used no coupons, paid $1.74. I’m set for months!!

When looking for a cheap filler i could actually use, I found Gerber 2nd baby food on clearence for 47 cents!
Then i found 25.5 oz walgreens formula on sale for 4.49!!!!
