Walgreens Register Rewards: Discussion Time

I just had a comment from Tessa N. who was asking about Register Rewards at Walgreens:

"I don't really feel like the RR are worth my time. Can someone help me understand that? I feel like if I'm not able to get something on sale, w/ a coupon it's over priced at Wags! I feel like I'm still paying for it if I can't use a coupon and RR on the same thing. You know what I mean? Does that make sense? I do find good deals there, w/ sales and then coupons, but have a hard time doing to RR... I just don't know if there's something I'm not getting, or does my reasoning make sense? :) Anyone w/ thoughts??"

Tessa N., I will give you my reasoning on why I like to use the Register Rewards, and then maybe some others will have some thoughts on it as well...

While I certainly miss the straight-out rebate checks that Walgreens used to give out, I don't mind the Register Rewards system. I certainly don't think that every time that Walgreens offers RR for items, that it is a good deal. To me, if I can get the item for equal to/cheaper than what I would normally pay for the item, then it is a good deal. However, this is only worth it to me if there is something that either I can 1) "Roll" my Register Rewards towards an item that prints another Register Reward OR 2) I can use the Register Reward towards something that I would need to buy anyways.

For example, this week I purchased the Huggies diapers (Buy 3, Get $5.00 Register Rewards). I used three $3.00 off coupons, making them $5.99 a pack, plus I received $5.00 back in Register Rewards. Now, $5.99 a pack for diapers is a great price as it is...on top of that I got $5.00 back! I will now turn around and use that $5.00 Register Rewards to either 1) Stockpile a few of the deals from this week - such as the $1.99 laundry detergent or the $ .24 toothpaste OR 2) I will save it for next week, and hopefully be able to "roll" it towards more Register Rewards and/or use it to stockpile next week's deals OR 3)If all of the above don't work, I will use it towards something that I would normally need to purchase. For example, milk is a great price at Walgreens...I also love their Wags brand trash bags...

Does that make sense? Not sure if my thoughts came out too jumbled...

What do the rest of think on this subject? Lets hear from you guys... Probably some of you think the same way as Tessa N....if so, why? If you like the Register Rewards, explain why?

Walgreens No Nonsense Hosiery Deal

Here's a comment from Debbie G regarding a deal that our Iron Mountain, MI Walgreens store has on No Nonsense Nylons:

"I went last night to get the bacon deal you talked about earlier. I found that the no nonsense great shapes nylons were on sale BOGO free. But what makes it even better is that our Iron Mountain Walgreens has special packages that have 2 pair in the for the price of 1...these packs are BOGO free. I ended up paying $4.29 for 4 pair of hose that are normally $4.29 each!!!"

Thanks, Debbie G.!

Walmart: Pampers Marked Down!

Just a heads-up for all you Iron Mountain, MI Walmart shoppers:

Izzy814 just e-mailed me to let me know that our Walmart had some Pampers Diapers on clearance for $8.00 for the packages/ $17.00 for the boxes. She said she saw these last night (Wednesday) so there might still be some there.

That would be great combined with the recent $2.00 off Pampers Diapers coupons (2/21 Procter & Gamble Coupon Insert and 3/14 Red Plum Coupon Insert) and the $1.50 off Pampers Diapers coupons (2/7 Procter & Gamble Coupon Insert)!

* $6.00 a package is not bad for Pampers diapers! Don't forget about the great price of Huggies at Walgreens this week too!

Reader Q&A

I just read a comment from an Anonymous reader, and thought it was worth writing a post on:

Q: I'm new to couponing, but appreciate your blog. Sometime would you please explain how you can use more than one coupon on items. Do stores accept two coupons if they're from different sources? Can you use 2 if you "buy one, get one free" even though you're only "buying one?"

A: Some stores will allow you to use more than one coupon on a single item. This is often called "stacking." At these stores, you can combine a "Store Coupon" (usually offered in the store or on the store's website, and labeled "Store Coupon.") with a "Manufacturers Coupon" (labeled "Manufacturers Coupon" on the coupon). Some stores that allow you to do this are Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid and Target. An example of doing this would be using a $1.00 off Huggies diapers store coupon and a $1.00 off Huggies diapers manufacturers coupon on the same pack of diapers to receive a total of $2.00 off of that one pack of diapers!

In regards to using two coupons on items that are "Buy One, Get One Free," it really depends on the store and the way that the items ring up at the cash register. Many times cash registers will charge full price for the first item and zero for the second item on "Buy One Get One Free" sales. If this is the case, they will most likely only allow you to use one coupon (on the item that was charged full price), and not two.

*You can see a copy of a letter that Moms By Heart received from Walgreens' Corporate Office here that states that you can use two coupons on a "Buy One, Get One Free" sale. If you do a lot of shopping at Walgreens, you may want to print a copy of this and have it with you if there is a question. It wouldn't hurt to contact the corporate offices of the stores that you frequent, to ask them what their policy is on this.*
However, some registers will ring up the two items that are "Buy One, Get One Free" as each being 50% off. If that is the case, you might be allowed to use two $1.00 off coupons (or other coupons) - one off of each item.

Much of this is up to individual store policies, and their interpretation of the wording on the coupons. (Read more about this here.)

A Thrifty Mom has this to say about this topic:
"First off, let me say a buy one get one free is a promo the stores does. It works great because it gets you to buy 2 products instead on 1. If you think about it, you are really just getting 2 items 50% off. If the store marketed it that way most people would only by 1 item. But when it is buy one get one free, you buy 2. They store is able to move more product this way. You can use 2 manufacturer coupon on 2 items 50% off item with no problem. But for some reason you will find trouble when you try to use the same 2 coupons on a buy one get one free sale. Some store are much more coupon friendly that others."

Here are three possible strategies from Cool Savings to maximize your savings by "stacking" the "buy one, get one free" offers:

1) The register will charge full price for the first item and zero for the second item: In this case, if you had a "buy one, get one free" coupon the cashier may simply deduct the full price of the first item, and you would get both items free (100% savings for two items).

Example: $4 item is on sale "buy one, get one free." You buy 2 items (full price $8), one rings up at $4 and one rings up at zero. Your coupon takes off the $4 item, so the final charge is ZERO for $8.00 worth of items (100% savings).

2) The register will charge full price for the first item and zero for the second item: If the store has a policy against giving two free items, then you should purchase four of the items, with two of the items ringing up at full price and two ringing up at zero. Then the cashier would use your "buy one, get one free" coupon to deduct the full price of one item. Result: Buy one item, get three free or a 75% savings overall for four items.

Example: $4 item is on sale "buy one, get one free." You buy 4 items (full price $16), 2 ring up at $4 each and 2 ring up at zero (total $8.00). Your coupon takes off one $4 item, so the final charge is $4.00 for $16.00 worth of items (75% savings).

3) The register will charge half price for each item. In this case, when you present your "buy one, get one free" coupon the cashier will deduct the price of one item, and you will get two items at 75% off.

Example: $4 item is on sale "buy one, get one free." You buy 2 items that each ring up at $2 each. Your coupon takes off one $2 item, so the final charge is $2 for $8 worth of items (75% savings).

*Please let me know what your questions are. If you're wondering, probably other people are too, and I would love to try to help figure it out!:)
