Walgreens: Possibly FREE Yes To Carrots Lip Balm!

Walgreens has Yes To Carrots Lip Balm on sale for just $0.99 this week! This is an awesome deal considering these normally retails for over $2! Plus, according to Susan over at Organic Deals and Coupons, you may be able ask the cosmetics counter associate for coupons for Yes To Carrots products. Supposedly they have $1/1 any Yes To Carrots products coupons behind the counter--which would make the lip balm completely FREE! Yay! These would make great little stocking stuffers too!

Just to ad...my Walgreens did have the $1 coupon last week when I bought the butter body that was on sale for Black Friday. The cashier at the makeup counter had it.

hey i have a walgreens question regarding register rewards

ok I bought 2 packages of Quilted northern and it kicked out 2.00 register reward (1.00 each) so im trying to figure out how much I need to go over for taxes etc.. Im going back to get the Acai after my coupon it will be 1.00 so now I have 2.00 in rr to use.. so I have an extra dollar so I can spend that but how much over 2.00 do i need to go considering rr do not cover taxes.. my state tax is 6.125%

Anon with tax....you need to spend at least 2.12...I live in MA and that is our state tax..if you spend 2.11, they won't take it!

they dont work on commission they get something called PMs that jive them a bit of extra pay on their checks when someone buys certain products at the counter.
I worked there for over 5 years as a BA at Walgreens.

So is my best bet to total my purchase and figure out the tax? and then whatever the tax go over that by a penny?

thanks so much!

I bought my first tube yesterday and planned on buying more...I guess I know where I'm heading. With Winter dancing around this is a necessity!

I just went to my Walgreens and they didn't have any of the Carrots lip balm coupons. Then I went to see if they even carried the product and I couldn't find it. Do you think this could be in a certain area?

Anonymous said...

The reason I called it commission (PMs) was because most people dont no what a pm is and yes it is extra pay on their checks but they are required to sell a certain amount of select items like I said earlier as my daughter currently works there. I was just trying to be as brief as possible. I wasnt trying to mislead anyone sorry.

I scored these the other day. I noticed the sale and a "coupon fairy" had left the coupons by the product. I got 4 for free!

Oh believe me the PMs make good money when couponers buy lots! Ill tell you that!!! <3

Heidi said...

mclovin to save.. I LOVE YOUR NAME!!!

I just tried the coupon and since these ring up at $.99, they won't accept the $1 coupon. Any suggestions?

Anonymous said...

Can someone share what their favorite "flavor" of these lip balms is? Thanks!

Just got some in VA! Great to send over to our troops in a care package!!! Thanks Hip!

The walgreens in the Lake Jackson, Tx area do not have any of the coupons :(

Carrie said...

I wasn't able to go to cosmetic counter cause there where only two employees in the store when I was there but .99 is such a great price I got one for each stocking plus one for me. Melon is one of my favorites:)

I called all around and FINALLY found a Walgreens that did carry the coupon. When I got there I picked out two and she only used one of the $1 off coupons. So I paid around $.99 plus tax. I didn't want to argue with her because she already had an attitude problem so I just paid and left. I still think it's a good deal. I wish everyone else luck too!

Heather said...

My Wags didn't have any (the asst mgr checked) but I still bought one of each variety. I buy almost exclusively organic, & I know this is a steal regardless!

I do have 4 other Wags all within a 20 min drive, so I'll check for coupons at them.

I noticed that the berry kind was not on sale. Did anyone else get this?
Also, I had four chapsticks and a filler item and four coupons, but it would only take three. This happened at two walgreens.
At the first, they had the coupons taped up on the shampoos and body butters. At the second, I asked the lady behind the counter and she was really strange about it. She would not let me take the coupons, and she said she had to keep them at her counter. I also noticed she had a huge box of coupons for other products too like nivea, soft soap, and finesse. She wouldn't give me those either, but if you don't have a crazy lady working at your walgreens, you should ask if they have any other coupons. :)

The berry kind was on sale in Va.

Not all Wags received the coupons.

they are not allowed to adjust the coupon price down, if they do and the store manager see this they can be fired. Its tuff enough in these economic times. So please do not ask them to adjust the coupon. We are all trying to keep their Jobs, and Yes, Lots of Employees have been fired over coupons. I have seen it and Heard it.

There is no Button to Push for RR. They print automatically and they are not printing it could be somthing else. check to requirements again. how many do you need to buy and so on.

The coupons at the Cosmetic counter are to be given to the customers when they checkout in cosmetics. And Only when they chaek out in Cosmetics. That is why the manufacters send them to the Cosmetic Department.

That is too funny! I just bought this product today, and I never heard of it before. I used it as an item for my second transaction today to bring up my total to use the RR. I wouldn't normally have bought something for so much, but the candy cane pen I had planned on buying had to go on transaction #1. (The register rang up my coffee nips as 1.29,.71 and 1.00 I thought the third one would have been 1.29. UGH!) There was a huge line behind me, so I just quickly threw the lip balm in the order instead of going back for a pencil or something.

My BA seemed a little nasty, and did not mention the coupon to me. When I go back to my regular Wags tomorrow, I will be sure to ask. Thanks for the heads up!

That is WRONG!.. They are required to adjust the coupon value by the manufacturer, otherwise it is considered fraud. Most Walgreens I have found do not know this. I only have 1 that has a clue. Even the manager stood there and educated one of the cashiers when I was checking out one time when the value exceeded the cost. He said " You MUST take the coupon and adjust the value." So do ask for them to adjust if it beeps. Those who know how to do coupons will. Those who have not a clue will not :(

This site rocks again! Well, trip #6 this week to various Wallygreens! Worth it everytime!!!!

Hmmn, anybody else notice some Walgreens give overage and some dont. I went to one today for the Ecotrin deal ($10q deal!) and last time I made $$, this last she said it would NOT except the Walgreens ad q. Still bought em since she did take off the $10 and made these like .47c for all 3. Earlier this week I went to another one and no problems. Followed instructions on both to the T so it was not that. Even had extra $$ so it would do it ya know?. Oh well. Still cheaaaaaaaap! items! Got some Acai to make up for this .47c LOL!!!!!! Woot Woot

These will make great xmas stuffers for my nieces!

Anonymous said...

Update to above story. She tried to scan the W ecotrin q but it would not except due to this $10q putting it over (free +$4.03) I did of course have $4.25 extra for this reason, but still no go at this store. And this lady is pretty helpful when it comes to RR and helping me save so I know it was Definately not her. Ive noticed this before on other overage deals too.

Just wondering if its a "store-by-store" thang or what?. Now I just got to to to the ones that do give out the overage I guess. Too bad sometimes they are out the goods though! lol.

At my Wags here in NJ if I have a coupon for say $1 off something and the item is on sale for 99cents the manager says they cannot adjust the coupon BUT they can adjust the price of the item so they put the item in for $1 and then the coupon scans with no beeps.

The lady behind my makeup counter looked at me like I had two head when I asked if she had any coupons. So, I guess that is a no?

This is my first time to use soupon in walgreens. My Walgreens had the coupon but the cachier reluctantly scanned the lip balm and told me it's not gonna work since this item's price is lower than the $1 discount. Followed by her warning, the their sistem really could not accept this item with the coupon. She told me that I should not do this. There is no such "money maker" things happening in Walgreens. I guess I would not be able to do any similar deals in Walgreens...felt like I was a greedy fool...

I was able to do this deal this evening in Sioux City, IA.

Got 3 at my Walgreens. They had
.50 coupons. .49 is still a great deal for good lip balm in my eyes.

Lip balm in your eyes? nooo. lol
Darn, I checked all my WGs and only one heard they had them a week ago or so, but were all out.

Still 99c is a great deal too btw.
