Walgreens Rundown II

Walgreens Logo
Quick Rundown of Shopping at Walgreen's.  Attached below is a link for more details.  Thought I would put this out for you guys so if you have any questions we can go a little more in detail if you like.  And it's 11pm ;)

RR = Register Rewards  These are manufacturer coupons printed from a separate printer and are to be used on your next shopping trip.  Certain products offer RR.  See your local flyer found in the front of the store or at the register for what products have RR that week.

1. Only 1 RR per offer printed per transaction
ex: $1.00 RR wyb (when you buy) 1 shampoo.  You can not buy 3 shampoo's in one transaction and get 3 $1 RR.  You will need to buy one at a time.

2. You can NOT pay for an item that offers a RR with the RR you just got from that same item on the previous transaction
ex: you gain $1 RR from the purchase of a shampoo.  If you use that RR to pay for a 2nd shampoo on your next transaction the system will not print a RR.

3. Remember, RR are manuf coupons.  Wags (Walgreen's) coupon policy states the coupon to items purchase have to be the same.  If you buy 3 items and have 3 coupons the register will not allow you to pay with a RR since it is considered a manuf coupon.  To get around this, you need a "filler" item.  A "filler" is an inexpensive item to get your coupon to item ratio the same.  Look for their weekly deals on the front of their flyers.  $0.09 hilighters, $0.11 folders...  If I see something on mark down like baby food or something else I know I need I usually get that. *catch* Your $1/2 items does not count as a 1 coupon to 2 items ratio.  The coupon is "attached" to both items thru the bar code.  *bouns* the coupons in their weekly flyer do not count as a coupon against your ratio so this will make for better "filler" options!

4. Look at your RR.  If it says issued by P&G you will not be able to pay with it and get a RR from another P&G item offering a RR
ex: You buy shampoo made by P&G and it gives you a $1 RR issued by P&G.  Now a toothpaste made by P&G is offering a RR wyb 1.  If you use the shampoo RR it will not print another.  Even though it's a completely different item, it's determined by who issues it.

5. You may stack a Wag's coupon with a manuf coupon.  Look at their beauty counter and by the front door for coupon booklets.

Here is KCL's Walgreen's 101 shopping advice. (click on the Walgreen's 101 "tab" a couple of banner's down.  Also watch the video, it helps a lot!!)  I hope all of this helps, it can be confusing.  Don't hesitate to ask questions, it's how I learned and it's how we'll teach others!

Top 10 Grocery Store Mark-Ups

Found this link on TLC about the top 10 marked up items at the Grocery Store.  The one I avoid the most is #1, pre-cut veggies.  I find the whole mushrooms and cut them myself.  I found red peppers on sale for $0.99 a piece, bought 5 and sliced them at home and froze them in separate baggies.  Whenever I want to add them to a meal they are ready at 60 seconds or so in the skillet.  Also watch out for frozen chcicken vs. fresh.  Very often you can find the fresh cheaper than frozen.  You're paying for convenience.  Hand-trimmed chicken vs regular chicken can be over a $1 difference per pound.  It all adds up.  Don't believe me?  Bring a calculator to the grocery store and write down some prices, the proof is on the wall.

Not only do you get the item for free, but Walmart's coupon policy states if there is an overage from your coupon to the item, you can apply that amount to either other items in your cart or the overage goes to the customer (from my personal experience, I would apply it to other items in your cart).

Remember to use different zip codes if you can't find the coupon you're looking for.  Try 90210 and 12345.  If you live in a smaller area, use a big city zip code for potential higher value coupon.  Find zip codes here.

Also remember about KCL's stock up price icons.  If you find something at a 3 month stock up price you're doing pretty good!  My advice is: unless you need it, only buy the items they have marked as a 3 month or 6 month stock up price.

Big thank you to TheKrazyCouponLady for the heads up!

Sivan Glass Scale only $9.99 (list price $49.99)

Just saw this deal on FrugalGals' facebook.  A Tempered Glass Digital Scale with Large LCD Display, Auto Shutoff and 330 Pound Weight Capacity for only $9.99.  I don't know much about the site that has this for sale, so if you've heard about it let me know!

Free Aquafresh at Walmart

This is an easy freebie!  Become a fan of Aquafresh on Facebook and you can print a $1 off any Aquafresh Extreme Clean Toothpaste.  Head over to the travel section and find the Aquafresh for only $0.97 so it's actually a $0.03 moneymaker!  Don't forget, Walmart's coupon policy says if you have a negative balance, they owe you the difference.  Now you can wait in line for a $0.06 gift card (since you will be using 2 coupons) or you can apply that overage to another product in your cart.  Trust me, you don't want to have a negative balance, management does not know what to do and it takes forever!  That will be a story for another day.

Remember, if the website comes up as "" to hit the back button a couple of times (slowly) once your coupon starts to print and you can get a second coupon!  See my Coca Cola blog post for detailed instructions.

Thanks to KCL for the heads up!

$1/2 Coca Cola 20oz or Dasani 20oz

I avoid the sodas and water at the check out lane when shopping at Walmart or the grocery stores because they are so expensive!  Here is a coupon that will make it easier on your wallet!  It's not an amazing final price but might justify the impulse buy :)  A bottle of Coke is $1.48 at Walmart so this will make each bottle only $0.98 when you buy (wyb) 2!

Thanks KCL for the heads up!

***Here is a known couponer secret on***

$7 Board Games at Target

Target will have several fun board games on sale starting tomorrow for only $12.  Pair up this great deal with a $4 off coupon found on and it makes a game only $7!  Pretty good price for a kid's birthday present or buy now and save for a Christmas present!  Don't rule out travel size games too!  Some Walmart stores have travel Connect 4 for only $5.24 so with coupon it would be only $1.24!!!

Thanks for the idea!!  Just wish I had a Target close by.

Here are the coupon match-ups for Target this upcoming week.  Some good prices on razors, diapers and hair items!  Big thanks to KCL for all their hard work.  If you need explanation on how to read their match up, see my Walgreen's post here.

BOGO at Cold Stone Creamery

Someone bring me one!  Here is a Buy One Get One (BOGO) ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery.  It expires on the 8th so print and head out the door to cool off!

Thanks for for the heads up!


Some of you might wonder why I bought 7 bottles of bbq when I only needed 1.  It's simple, to add to my stockpile.  I was able to get each bottle of KC Masterpiece for $0.50 when they retail for $2.39.  My store had them on sale for $1 and I had 7 MQ's for $0.50/1.
Items go on sale in cycles.  BBQ may not be at that price for another 3-6 months.  If I buy only 1 right now, when I need another in 2 months I would have to spend the $2.39, I don't think so.  The point of buying multiples is simple, get it cheap now so you don't have to pay for it later...pun intended.
There are many other reasons: job loss, helping family or friends, or donating to shelters.
TheKrazyCouponLady has given us more reasons as well. If you'd like to check them out click here.

Walgreens Match-up: Week of 9/4/11

I love Walgreens because of their Register Rewards.  Now those of you in KC are limited on Register Rewards because they are doing a test market where you get a card and accumulate points, then redeem those points for gift cards.  If you are new to register rewards or couponing at Walgreens click here for a explanation, it does get a little confusing. is really good at matching up the coupons for us and letting us know what is a great deal.  Look for their stock up price icons next to the items with great prices.
 - 3 month stock up price: this is typically 75% off retail and is a good idea to get about a 3 months supply.

 - 6 month stock up price: this is typically 90% off retail. When you find something at this price it's a great idea to get a decent amount.

Before you check out their match up's, let me explain how they (KCL) lists the deals.

Electrasol, 20 pk or Jet-Dry, 8.45 oz $3.99 (this is the item and the sale price)                           
Buy 1, Receive $1.50 Register Reward, Limit 1 (this item is offering a rr of $1.50 when you buy 1)
Use $0.65/1 - Finish Powerballs or Gelpacs – ( (these are the available coupons to use)
Or $0.50/1 – Finish Jet-Dry Rinse Agent – (
(go to this website to print either coupon) 
Pay as low as $3.34, Receive $1.50 Register Reward (out of pocket (oop) expense is $3.34 but you'll gain a $1.50rr)
Final Price:  $1.84 (you can't apply the rr you gained to purchase the item but they subtract what you gained from what you paid)

Click here to see their coupon match up for this upcoming week.

Walgreens Rundown

Here is a crash course on how to shop at Walgreens.  For a bit more detail head over to the KCL's Walgreens 101.  They also have a video that really helped me understand the policies.

Walgreens offers Register Rewards (RR) on some of their items.  A RR is a manufacturer coupon (MQ) printed from a separate printer and is printed when your receipt is printed.  At times you only need to buy 1 of somthing and you'll get a RR.

Now you know what they are, here's how to use them.  Walgreen's coupon policy states you must have an equal number of MQ and items you are purchasing.  Ex: you have 3 shampoos, 3 MQ's you clipped from the paper and you want to pay with a RR you gained from a previous purchase.  This means you have a 3:4 ratio and you'll need to purchase one more item.  This is where "filler" items come into the picture.  Fillers are inexpenseive items such as a folder, hilighter or a piece of candy.  The cheaper the better.  At times you can get these items for as low as $0.10.  Now your ratio is 4:4 and you're good to go!

Here is how to obtain the most RR you can.  If an item is offering a RR when you buy only 1 of them, you can not buy 3 all at once and get 3 RR.  Ex: Buy one lip gloss for $1.50 get a $1.50 RR.  You can buy only one at a time to get the RR.  This is why multiple transactions are done.  You can do 3 separate transactions and walk out with 3 items and 3 RR.  *Important* You can NOT use RR from your first transaction to pay for the same item on your second transaction, it will not print another RR.  Ex: You gained a RR from your lip gloss purchase and you want another one.  When it's time to pay for the 2nd gloss, don't use the RR you gained from purchasing your first gloss, a RR will not print.  I hope I haven't confused you.

If you have ANY questions please let me know.  You can actually make money at Walgreens with RR.  Ex: lip gloss $1.50 and get a $1.50 when you buy (wyb) 1.  You have a coupon for $0.50 off the lip gloss.  You pay $1.00 oop (out of pocket) and you leave with $1.50 in RR which you can use to buy your next great deal!  Watch what the RR say though.  If the lip gloss is a Proctor & Gamble item (the RR will say what it's from) you can not use that RR to buy another P&G item and expect a RR.  Now I've really confused you.  Please post any questions you may have! :)

Procter & Gamble (P&G) Coupon Booklet

I LOVE these coupons and it's time for a new book.  Go here to request a Proctor and Gamble Gather Together coupon book.  You can request one every 30 days and it takes about 4-6 weeks for delivery.  *tip* bookmark the link and when you get yours in the mail, request a new one!  There are over $35 in coupons and include Cascade, Swifer, Febreeze and many other P&G products. *reminder* set up a separate gmail account to use when you sign up for samples or coupons so you don't clutter up your regular email account.

Free Blockbuster Express Kiosk Rental codes

Here are some Blockbuster Express Kiosk Rental code that are good thru September 5th.  These codes will get you a free one night rental but are not valid on Hot Lists Movies.

Several of you have become "friends" of some crock pot pages so I thought I would share this eCookbook from  I own a crock pot, and I know where it is, and I know how to turn it on, I just don't use it!  But some of these recipes look easy and really good!  Seems the hardest part will be getting my husband to eat some  of it!  If you know of any good recipes, share them or the link with us!

50% off a single item at Michael's

I'm missing my craft stores but for those of you lucky to have a Michaels around, here is a 50% off one item coupon for you!  There are some other great coupons on the same page too.  You should be able to print as many as you want but read the fine print.  "one coupon per customer per day"  and they are only valid on certain days.  If you have a store close to you, make a couple of stops in order to get a great deal on some cute Fall decor!  Thanks to for the heads up!

Is this a good price?

So what's the best price for bananas right now?  If you saw them for $0.79/lb would you buy them?  Depending on your region the answer is NO!  In my area bananas are usually at their lowest price at $0.57/lb.  I've really started to pay attention to the prices of produce since I very rarely find a coupon on any produce.  Luckily enough, the fabulous women of have compiled an extensive list to help us know what price goal we should try to get to.  They base their prices to a 3 month and 6 month stock up price.  The 3 month price is about 75% off retail and the 6 month price is 90+% off retail.  Feel free to print this, bookmark it and save it to your computer.

100 page Composition Books only $0.40 for a pack of 5 at Walmart posted that Walmart might have dropped their price on 5 pack 100 page composition books to $0.40.  That's an amazing price!  I use these to make out my lists for shopping.  I like that I can still write on them when I'm at the store and I don't need a clipboard.

Thanks for the info!

I've started saving great school items like this for my children.  It's years till they start but toss the stuff in a big plastic bin and when it comes time to start you'll be a step ahead.  They also make for cheap coloring books! - a neat daily deal site

I found this site,  They post one awesome deal per day, so it's similar to but for actual items.  Here's the breakdown on how it works.  What you are buying from is similar to a gift card.  They will email you a voucher with a "coupon code" and you do the shopping yourself on the site where the deal is to.  Ex:  You buy a $20 voucher for only $10 to  Once you receive the email, go to and shop for $20 worth of product.  Enter the voucher/coupon code during checkout and it will take $20 off your total.  Each deal is a little different so make sure you read each one.  The voucher usually does not cover s&h so keep that in mind.  Today they are offereing $18 worth of reusable bags for only $9 via  **BONUS**  if you sign up you get a $10 credit so these bags would cost you only s&h, around $4. You can use the credit later for somthing else if you like.
