Walgreens: Updates from the Field 5/5 & My Embarrassing Shop Story!

by Christie Bisbee on May 5, 2013

Breathe Right CouponsHere are some updates from my Walgreens shopping trip today to help your trip go a little smoother! :)

BREATHE RIGHT DEAL: Just an FYI the $2/1 Breathe Right coupon in the Walgreens cold and flu booklet, is being difficult. So if you have this booklet you may want to bring it with you and they have to input it manually. The $1.00 on any Breathe Right product (10ct. or larger) (zip 1002) works just fine.

BIC DEAL: The new Bic coupon makes for an even better deal than I realized on the Bic Twin Select Silky Touch. These are just $3.99 at most stores and B1G1 50% off, making them FREE after coupons!

Walgreens Deals
Buy (2) Bic Select 10ct $3.99 B1G1 50%
Total = $5.98
(2) $3/1 BIC Soleil disposable razor, exp. 6/2/13 (SS 05/05/13)

Screen Shot 2013-05-05 at 12.43.15 PMALWAYS DEAL: The Regular Wipes and the Wipes to go are both included in the deal this week. I realized that the $1/1 Always Pads coupon from the 4/28 P&G also includes Cleansing Cloths, so you can use these on this deal.

That makes these only $1.50 each after coupons and points, which is a good price for these (normally $5.49 each – OUCH!). Here’s the deal…

Walgreens Deals
Buy (2) Always Wipes to Go 20ct or Reg. 40ct 2/$6
(2) $1/1 Always Pads or cleansing cloths, exp. 5/31/13 (P&G 04/28/13)
Total = $4, Get Back $1 (1,000) Balance Rewards Points
= $1.50 EACH

eeekkkVIRAMAX: This mornings shop was a bit embarrassing. I couldn’t find the Virmax anywhere and I needed it to turn some points into Register Rewards in my transaction. Now, this is a “male enhancement supplement” and this is a store where everyone knows me and even my parents shop there and know everyone!

Well, after looking and looking, I finally gave up and got the courage to ask someone if they knew where it was. Of course the sales associate had no idea where it was or even what it was, so I had to um… explain. As if that wasn’t bad enough, she couldn’t find it so she asked another associate, so now two people are looking for this and my face is slowly starting to turn pink. Then the assistant manager asks what I’m waiting on and again, I have to… um… explain. At this point I’m red and starting to sweat.

I finally decide to give up and redo my transaction. I’m in line behind 2 other people waiting to pay and the assistant manager comes running over with a bottle and announces proudly AND loudly “I found the male enhancement supplement you were looking for!”.

So if you can’t find it either, be careful who you ask! 😉

Do you know what the section that he found it(male supplement)? I tried to find it also but can not find it.

Thank you


Mary Gossage May 5, 2013 at 2:33 pm

It’s in the same aisle with family planning and tampons.


melissa May 5, 2013 at 5:15 pm

actually its n the same asile as t vits towards the middle bottom shelf is here all the male supp r found


lisa May 5, 2013 at 1:42 pm

LOL Sorry for your embarrassment, but that’s too funny.


karol May 5, 2013 at 2:19 pm

That was hysterical, I hope it works out for whoever uses it after all that, I bet that employee loved announcing that one, it reminds me of a golden girls episode looking for various condoms.


sharell May 5, 2013 at 1:45 pm

Too funny! I started looking in the condoms which is where I found the last male enhancement item that had RR, and thats where it was. lol I had a hard time finding the anti diarrhea and had to have someone look for it!


sharell May 5, 2013 at 1:45 pm

There is also a $2 coupon in the breath right box!


Mary May 5, 2013 at 1:59 pm

Yes, there is a $2 coupon in the box but it’s for a 25 count or higher box.


skizzatt May 5, 2013 at 1:59 pm

Sometimes it is IMPOPSSIBLE to find items at Walgreens!!! Why does it have to be so difficult?


Donna May 5, 2013 at 1:59 pm

LOL, loved your story. This will fade. At my store, I found the male enhancement right away. They had it on display along with the Florax Diarrhea Relief at the front of the store, by the cosmetics counter.


jane May 5, 2013 at 3:19 pm

Hey Christie…can you use the BIC Soleil coupon on Silky Touch disposables?? Aren’t they two different things :)


Tara May 6, 2013 at 10:16 pm

I thought the SAME thing, I just got back from purchasing. I ended up buying the soleils, They actually have some packs that have 2 extra razors in them( the 4 packs), Only 1 left , but hey thats 2 more free. I used 4 3/1 coupons and it cost me, $9 for the 18 razors. More than I was expecting to pay, but what are you gonna do. I dont think the 3.99 work with this deal since the coupon says soleil


Amy May 5, 2013 at 4:05 pm

The BIC select razors are not soleils so that coupon matchup does not work. All the Soleil razors were 6.49 or higher


Crystal May 5, 2013 at 4:59 pm

The 1.50/1 Breathe Right 10ct or higher in the Walgreens Allergy booklet worked perfectly, if anyone wants to try that one when the 2.00/1 is being difficult.


Katie May 5, 2013 at 5:34 pm

Too funny! Everything went well today, took advantage of the Blue Diamond almonds and also picked up 21 graduation cards at 8.5 cents each. Did have a beep on the $2/1 Breathe Right coupon – cashier said it had beeped for everyone but she put it in manually for me.


Rebekah May 5, 2013 at 6:42 pm

I got a nice surprise last night. I bought 27 cards (my kids go to a lot of birthday parties) and I expected to get 9,000 points back (1,000 for every 3) but it overlapped with this week’s deal (5,000 points WYB $20 Hallmark) that I didn’t even know about, and I ended up getting 14,000 points—all the 27 cards free and a $5 MM. Was thrilled!!!—definitely worth harassing my friends to print out coupons!


Tori May 5, 2013 at 11:12 pm

That is awesome! Great find, too bad its over!


Diane May 5, 2013 at 6:55 pm

I attempted the Always deal today. Ad said “select” pads and there were no signs up on the products. So I picked up 2 packages that fell into the “14 to 22 pk.” range. They did not ring up on sale, so the cashier let me go back and try a different variety. They also did not ring up on sale. She called the manager up and he was clueless, so he just suggested I remove the items from my purchase. I then told him I would need to void my entire transaction because I had $12.00 in RR that expired today and I would need to find other products to fill in my transaction. He was not happy but he did it. Second time around at the cashier, my RR for the “W” tampons did not print, and then I also realized they rang up at 1.99, not 1.49. Manager came up again, and he gave me a look and told me I had the wrong variety of tampons. I explained to him that I picked up the box at the display on the beauty counter where the free/cheap RR deals are every week, so perhaps his staff should put the proper product out. Then he apologized and corrected my transaction and my RR printed. I was also buying the BOGO Lays today and told the manager that there was a bag of chips on the shelf that expired April 23rd! I’m sure they were happy to get me out of the store! I will go back and try the Always deal later when all the sale tags are up.

I always have an issue at my wags store… The cashiers are fabulous… However the management not so much!


Chelsey May 5, 2013 at 7:13 pm

I had an issue with the Always deal as well. Mine rang up at 3/$9. So when I only purchased two it was 3.99 a piece. The cashier was able to adjust it, but she had to redo the transaction to figure it out.


Wendy May 5, 2013 at 7:44 pm

Lol! Glad they found the product for you Christie :-)


Sarah May 5, 2013 at 8:30 pm

At least you are not a man! Then it would have been more horrifying! I had troubles here and there finding the male enhancement in the store, Florax in my area was hard to come by.


april t May 5, 2013 at 8:33 pm

That sounds like what would have happened to me.We appreciate everything you do to help us.


lisa May 5, 2013 at 9:00 pm

HE HE HE HE… Glad it was not me:)


Heather C. May 5, 2013 at 9:39 pm

Great story! I would have absolutely DIED! I soooo understand your pain. Hopefully you told them this was a major COUPON item :O)


Hanna May 5, 2013 at 11:39 pm

That Breathe Right $2 off coupon didn’t work, cashier nor the manager did not want to manually put in so I just ended using my other coupon.


beth May 5, 2013 at 11:39 pm

Inside the Florex DS box i found a $3/1 coupon so i went back but couldn’t find and more on the shelf :(


Whitney May 6, 2013 at 10:56 am

Thanks for letting us know! Both of my stores had these way on top of the health products with the overstock.


Michelle May 6, 2013 at 7:45 am

The $2 breath right coupon didn’t work for me either ( it said coupon expired even though date was clearly 8/2013. When the manager looked it up, Walgreens had decided that the cold & flu season was over, so they deemed the coupons expired. Pure craziness.


Justin May 6, 2013 at 11:54 am

I would complete that feedback survey on your receipt. The district managers look closely at the comments. See if you can get him in some trouble!


Jenn@couponingbiotwins.com May 6, 2013 at 2:55 pm

I would have been totally embaressed asking someone to help me find the male enhancements in the store…. The wags I frequently shop at on a daily basis knows me and my mom…. They already look at me like most people look at people who coupon… Like I’m CRAZY!! I’m just a simple girl that loves to save money


Jenn@couponingbiotwins.com May 6, 2013 at 10:23 pm

I’m SO BUMMED…. Just got back from Walgreens, I coupon EVERY Monday at the same exact store and every week there is some new ISSUE… This week… If you use a coupon you CAN NOT recieve a register reward!! I found this statement quite interesting because the register reward didn’t print for the breath right strips OR the calagel and I didn’t use a coupon for the calagel! Did anyone else have a RR printing issue for these items? Any suggestions as to what I should do or if there is anything I can do? The RR for breath right strips DID print when I didn’t use coupon and I lost my breath right coupon…. The manager manually printed the RR for calagel….


Missy May 6, 2013 at 11:19 pm

LOL This happened to me awhile back with colon cleanse/or something along those lines…. I asked at the back of the store and she couldn’t help me find I anywhere…but when I was checking out she came running up and announced that she had found my colon cleanse!!! Sheesh…totally pink faced!


Wendy P May 7, 2013 at 1:08 pm

So glad I am NOT the only one with embarrassing moments! I have been at this couponing thing almost 2 years and have learned it is a WTH kind of moment when I realize the deal I am getting who cares what it is for :) I have become numb to the embarrassment–the only thing is if my 16 yr old daughter is with me–if she sees any signs of trouble she bolts for the door and refuses to show her face anymore! :) Usually it is the sales associates I get to blush more than me! :) We have to enjoy these little fun moments in life :)
