Walgreen's is a store we used to go to occasionally just to pick up prescriptions. Since beginning our frugal journey we see why it is much more than a pharmacy! Here is the information we think you will find most helpful:
Walgreen's has two types of store coupons. The first can be found in the Easy Saver Catalog in the front of the store or you can download it from here. This catalog will have various coupons that you will be able to use for about a month. Once they expire a new Easy Saver catalog will come out. The other type of store coupons they offer are in their weekly ad found in the Sunday newspaper, in the front of the store or you can find the ad here by clicking on the weekly ad link. What we love about Walgreen's is that you can potentially use 3 coupons on the same product. Confused?!? We were at first too! Basically it works like this -Easy Saver coupon + Weekly Ad coupon + Manufacturer coupon.... all on 1 product! The cashier and the register will except all three! *Remember you can almost always use manufacturers coupons with store coupons.REGISTER REWARDS
Register rewards are store coupons that print out of a catalina machine next to the registers in all Walgreen's stores. The values vary depending upon the promotions going on at the time. Basically you save them to use like cash on your next purchase. For example if you have a $5 Register Reward and you purchase $6.75 worth of products the RR(register reward) will bring your total down to $1.75!
Walgreen's also offers a rebate program that can be found in the Easy Saver catalog (after the coupons). They usually have a handful of Free after rebate items. Most of the time if we can find a manuf. coupon to match up with one of the products we can actually make money purchasing it! There are also other rebate items that aren't free but still could possibly be a great deal. How you ask.... use a manuf coupon to bring the total down! Walgreen's also just added online rebate submissions. This has made the rebate process much faster and easier. All you have to do is go here and register. Once your registered just enter the numbers at the top of your receipts and check the boxes of the products you've purchased! Basically that's it. You can then choose if you want a Walgreen's gift card (you will get 10% more) or a check. I always choose the gift card and then use it to purchase the rebate items for the next month. Once you become a Walgreen's guru you will spend very little out of pocket!
Make sure to sign up for Walgreen's emails. They will sometimes send printable store coupons and other special promotions. Recently there have been a few Friday only printable coupons good for $5 off $20 and a $10 off $30 in store purchases! Pair these with some manuf coupons and you've got some awesome deals!
Walgreen's also has different transferred prescription gift card deals. If you are a new customer and transfer your prescription over you can potentially get a $10-$30 gift card FREE!! Look for these offers in their weekly ads, on their website, in the newspaper, on Catalina coupons that print out after your receipt and in various other spots.
