Walgreens has a couple of ways to save money.
Walgreens has coupons in their weekly ads that you get in your Sunday paper. You are able to use these coupons and manufacturers coupons on the same item. Using these coupons together when possible helps the saving to add up.
These are similar to CVS’s extra care bucks, but they are not tied to a card. The register rewards print out as a coupon at the end of your transaction and can be used on your next purchase. You can not pay with a register reward from the same manufacturer that you are getting a register reward from. What this means, is if you have a Unilever register reward, you can not use it to pay for a Unilever item that will print out a register reward. You can use a Unilever register reward to pay for an item where a Proctor and Gamble or other manufactuer register reward would print out. You CAN use a Unilever register reward to purchase Unilever products, but if a Register Reward should have printed out it would not. Just be careful about when to use your rewards, if you are planning on getting more register rewards.

Can a customer use both a Manufacturer’s coupon and Walgreens coupon for the same item in a purchase?
- One Walgreen and one manufacturer coupon can be used for the same item, unless either coupon prohibits such use.
- Walgreens Roto Ad Coupons, Instant Value Coupons (IVC), and a manufacturer’s coupon can be used towards the purchase of any one item. “One coupon per purchase” means one coupon must be tendered for each PIECE sold.
What happens if the Manufacturer coupon’s value is more than the retail value?
Walgreens does not provide cash back if a coupon is presented for more than the purchase value of the item (e.g., the customer is using the coupon to purchase a
If the retail of the item is less than the face value of the coupon:
- the coupon value shall be the retail value if the state requires taxes to be paid on that item
- the coupon value shall be the retail value plus taxes if the state does not require taxes to be paid on the item.
Hopefully these tips will help you save money for your budget!
