This was before I...
learned about stacking coupons
had an organization system for my coupons
found good sources for extra coupons
had any kind of stock pile
and WAY before I ever blogged with any frequency!
Some of the GREAT coupons include:
$5 off a value box of Pampers or Huggies diapers
$5 off 40 load or higher of Tide or Dreft
$2 off value box of Pampers or Huggies Wipes
These most likely can be combined with another sale that is going on this month at Babies R US, where you get a $15 giftcard for purchasing 3 items off a list- details can be found HERE. I am going to try it and will let you know! Don't forget BRU lets you combine or "stack" their coupons with manufacture coupons from the Sunday Paper or internet printable coupons.
These are some of the other deals that could be awesome if combined with manufactures or internet printable coupons.
$3 off any 2-pk of sippy cups
$2 off 3 baby lotion/wash/diaper products (Johnsons $3/3 printable HERE)

Still having their mega event- you buy any combination of 10 items that are marked with the green "score mega savings" tags and you will automatically get $5 off your bill which equals .50 off the sale price, this combined with coupons = very good deals. Also since the $5 comes off the bottom of your bill, you can earn overage on some items - like the Hormel Chili. It is on sale for $1- .50 for the Mega sale and there are coupons out for .55 off 2. This coupon doubles meaning you get $1.10 off every 2 cans you buy.
So $1-.50 (mega)- .55 (coupon)= +.05 for each can!!!!

Thanks to Money Saving Mom for putting all the deals in one place!
- Doubles up to $.65 (up to the price of the item- will not give overage)
- Only doubles 8 like coupons at a time
- Have lots of Catalina deals where you can buy so many of one item or brand and coupon will print for a dollar amount off your next order. You can buy the items with coupons!
Example of one I did before Christmas: Buy 8 philly cream cheeses and get $4 off your next order- I had coupons for $.50/2 which doubled, they were on sale for $1.25.
So 8 x $1.25 - 4 (.50 x 2) = $6 and then I received a $4 coupon for my next order making my 8 cream cheese cost $2- which was great for all the holiday cooking.
I have also received free yeast to make bread with this kind of offer.
Couple of things about coupons at Walgreens.
- Walgreens coupons can be stacked (combined) with manufactures coupons.
- Manufactures coupons need to be given to the cashier first before any Walgreens coupons to avoid beeping (when the register rejects a coupon).
- You can use coupons to buy something you are going to get a Register Reward for.
Register Rewards: these are like cash to be used at Walgreens within a set amount of time- watch the expiration dates, it sucks if you don't notice and find it expired!
- Once in a while they wont print (has not happen to me personally yet), have the manager re ring you up a another register if they still don't print- return your items and get your coupons back!
- You can also write to the Catalina Company (they are the makers of the machine) and get your issues resolved that way.
- Register Rewards cannot be used on the same deal to get the deal again. For example if Dove Shampoo is buy 2 get a $5 RR, I cannot turn around to use the $5 RR to buy more Dove and expect the RR to print again.
- You can "roll" the RR into other deals by different makers or use them on FAR products.
- You can only redeem 1 RR per transaction but you can do multiple transactions, just split your order up. (I actually try to not leave the store with a RR at all, I will make a plan so when I check out, I seperate my order- first I buy the stuff that will print out the RR and then I use the RR to pay for rest.)
Free After Rebate (FAR)- Walgreens puts out several items a month that are free after rebate- you can use a manufactures coupon on these and get the full sale price back, therefor you would make money on the FAR products.
Rebates from Walgreens
- Can be done online quickly and easily!
- If you allow them to put the money on a Walgreens gift card they will add 10%, again making you money. (I have been shopping at Walgreens for the past few months and have very rarely needed anymore money out of pocket I just keep refilling the Walgreens card at the end of the month and then use that money for the current months deal
