Walgreens: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

As some of you couponers already noticed – Walgreens recently came out with an updated coupon policy. You can read the link for the full policy, but here are a few high low-lights:

  • “Walgreens will not accept coupons that exceed the selling price of an item.”
    • This means that a coupon for $1/1 will not be accepted for an item that has a selling price of $0.99. Previously the coupon would be marked down to the selling price, to avoid an overage. That will no longer be allowed.
  • “For offers when multiple items are purchased and additional items are free (buy 1 get 1 free; buy 2 get 1 free, etc.), the number of coupons applied to that offer cannot exceed the number of items required in the “buy” portion of the offer. Coupons may not be applied against any free item received in any offer.”
    • One of the best savings methods at Walgreens (as opposed to other stores) was that on a BOGO deal, you could use two coupons to save more (one on the “buy one” item and one on the “get one” free item). This new policy ends that practice.

These aren’t ideal changes, but companies have to adjust as more and more bad couponers take advantage of the system. It really hurts all of us when a few bad apples clear shelves or commit coupon fraud, so now – more than ever – I want to emphasize being a good couponer.

But with the bad there must be some good, and this week that means sharing a few of my favorite Walgreens deals for next week (6/1-6/7). Check out the great savings below and don’t forget to print your coupons before they reset next month.
