Walgreens Store Guide

  • Walgreens Coupon Policy.
  • Walgreens does not double coupons
  • You may stack one manufacturer coupon and ALL Walgreen store coupons that apply. The official policy says: "When purchasing a single item, Walgreens accepts one manufacturer coupon and applicable Walgreens coupon(s) for the purchase of a single item, unless prohibited by either coupon offer."
  • You may not have more manufacturer coupons than items.
  • Register Rewards
    • RR print from a Catalina machine at the register after you complete your transaction that includes a participating item. Most RR are published in the weekly ad although some are only posted in the store. 
    • RR can be used on your next transaction at Walgreens.
    • RR count as manufacturer coupons in the item to manufacturer coupon ratio. For example, if you purchase 4 products and have 1 manufacturer coupon for each of those items and would like to use a RR from a previous transaction, you will need to add a "filler item". A filler item is an inexpensive item you add to your transaction in order to balance your item to manufacturer coupon ratio. If you had 4 items but only 3 manufacturer coupons, you could use your RR without adding a filler item. 
    • If you purchase 2 identical RR qualifying items in one transaction, only 1 will result in a RR being printed. If you want to purchase more than one of a particular item, purchase them in separate transactions so you can get a RR from each one. You can purchase different items that qualify for a RR in one transaction as long as they are not the same item.
    • If you use a RR received from buying an item to purchase another identical item, you will NOT get another RR. You may use a RR to purchase a different RR qualifying item to receive another RR.
  • Walgreens Store Coupons
    • In Ad Coupons
      • Look in the weekly ad for coupons for items
    • Instant Value Coupons (IVC) are coupons found in a booklet located near the weekly ad in the store. This is a monthly booklet and the coupons are good for that month. 
    • Walgreens store coupons do not count toward your coupon to item ratio.  You can use as many Walgreens store coupons in a transaction as you would like.
  • When using manufacturer coupons and Walgreens store coupons, give the cashier all your manufacturer coupons first and then use your store coupons.  This will allow the coupons to give you overages off the rest of your purchase. 
  • If you would like to purchase a large quantity of a sale item, you can order up to 99 of an individual item in advance. Be prepared to prepay and have all coupons needed on hand when making the order.
  • If you are going to make several transactions in one visit, it works well to go to the cashier at the Cosmetics counter.  They are usually not as busy and can take the time to do the multiple transactions and process all your coupons.
  • If a particular item you want is out of stock, you can request a rain check for the sale price. Rain checks do not include RR for an item. 
  • B1G1 - If there is a B1G1 sale, you can:
    • use up to two "cents off" coupons
    • use a B1G1 coupon to get both items for free!
  • You can use coupons on clearance items.
