Thanks for the deals! I just wanted to let you know that you can't use the coupon for the colgate toothpaste.... That coupon expires today and the sales don't take effect until tomorrow.


2 Maria S. July 18, 2009 at 3:15 pm

Comment about the Eskimo Pie rebate form...
Per the wording on the form, the rebate form appears to be a tear-off, which probably means it was scanned and this could very likely make it void if printed from the internet. The form looks similar to another rebate form that I recently received in the mail for another product. Plus the form doesn't really state what items are valid for the rebate which makes me think it was part of a flyer from the mail or in the store and only the detachable part was scanned. I have my doubts that this form will be valid and accepted for the rebate.


3 Maria S. July 18, 2009 at 3:20 pm

Didn't see the following until I looked into it a little more...
The following link is the information page which you can then go to the pdf rebate form.
I'm in Houston so I have never heard of the store Hillers, I thought was just some random website.
Maybe the form will work, unless it's area specific.


4 Nicole July 18, 2009 at 3:38 pm

There is also a coupon for a free Axe shampoo or conditioner (up to $5.49) in the August edition of Maxim magazine, page 21. Not worth buying the magazine off the newstand, but if you know someone who subscribes it's a great coupon. Would be good to use at Walgreens this week with the buy 2 get one free sale on Axe.

5 Kelly July 18, 2009 at 4:49 pm

Where is the Excedrine migraine IP on the website link? I'm a dork and can't find it.


6 Jenna July 18, 2009 at 5:11 pm


How does the neutrogena BOGO offer work? If one is 7.99 and I use the 3/1 coupon, it will cost about 4.99, and I get one free. So does that mean that I can use a second coupon for the free product and have another $3 taken off the 4.99? Is that how I end up paying .99 for each product?

Sorry! These BOGOs confuse me sometimes!


7 Tara Kuczykowski July 18, 2009 at 5:33 pm

Kelly, scroll down to the bottom and you'll see it.

Jenna, Walgreens will accept two coupons on a buy one get one free offer.


8 Sara July 18, 2009 at 5:35 pm

yes jenna you can use two 3 dollar off coupons and pay .99 cents for each


9 lynn@MavenofSavin July 18, 2009 at 5:37 pm

I hate to be a pain, but I have desperately been trying to improve with the whole register rewards "rolling" thing. I just clicked on every Mr. Linky and there are NO scenarios - I only see the same coupon match-ups over and over. I ALREADY HAVE THAT!! What transactions are you going to do to use the least oop???


10 Melissa July 18, 2009 at 7:05 pm

The coupons for the Mentos in my SS from 5/3 & 6/21 are for 55 cents not $1.00.


11 angie July 18, 2009 at 7:24 pm

i got the .55 mentos coupons also. the amount varies by region. have not seen a 1.00 one here in dallas for mentos since i started couponing.


12 Sandy July 18, 2009 at 8:09 pm

Great list! I posted a link to your list on my blog. I think that Walgreens has been very disappointing lately.

Lynn -

I would start with the Dove scenario (instant moneymaker) and then use those $2 RRs to buy any other items that you want. I'm a sucker for those Engangered Species chocolate bars right now. They make great, QUALITY [ :) ] fillers because they will print off a slip containing a code for a free redbox one-night rental. However, the Pilot pens also look to be great filler items as well - they're only $1 and you get $1 RR back, so I'll use those instead.

Transaction #1:

This transaction is tricky and depends on how well you know your cashier. In my experience, and despite the "standardized" coupon policy, some Wags cashiers will give you the full face value of any coupon and others will reduce the coupon value to the actual cost of the item. If you're not sure which policy your cashier adheres to, then ask in advance before you shop. In the case of the $0.99 trial deoderant, the $1/1 coupon exceeds the price. Assuming your Wags will give you full $1 value, which mine does, here is the scenario:

Buy (2) Dove Body Mists, $4.49 ea.
Buy (2) Dove Deodorants (travel size), $0.99 ea.
Buy (1) Pilot G2 Gel Pens (2-pk.), $1 ea.
Use (2) BOGO Dove coupons
Use (2) $1/1 Dove Deoderant coupons
OOP = $0.98
Earn $3 RRs ($2 for Dove, $1 for Pilot pens)

(I actually did this scenario last week using the Endangered Species chocolate bars instead of the Pilot pens as a filler. If your Wags reduces the coupon value to $0.99, then you don't have to don't have to buy the Pilot pens or chocolate bars. Your total will be FREE after coupons. I could be wrong about this, but in my experience, RRs will still print if your total cost is $0, but not if your price after coupons and discounts is negative. I discovered this when I bought Oreo cakesters and Pringles a few weeks back, but it could have been a fluke.)

Transaction #2:

Buy (1) Tylenol Extra Strength, $4.99 ea.
Buy (1) Pilot G2 Gel Pens (2-pk.), $1 ea.
Use (1) $2/1 Tylenol Extra Strength coupon (SS 6/21)
Use $2 RRs (Dove) from previous transaction
OOP = $1.99
Earn $4 RRs ($3 for Tylenol, $1 for Pilot pens)

Total OOP: $2.97
$5 RRs to use next week


14 sara July 18, 2009 at 11:23 pm

With the redbox codes, you have to make sure the store u are shopping at has a redbox. If not the code might not print. I work for Walgreens and my store does not have a redbox and the code dont print out at the register when that candybar is bought.


15 Jenna July 19, 2009 at 12:01 am

Hello all <3

Thank you for the clarification on BOGOs.. I thought that because you get one free, you can't use the coupon on it, because it's already free.. Hah. Anyway, thanks!

I have a few of the 1.00 mentos coupons that came about a month ago but they're only valid on the 3packs!


16 Katie July 19, 2009 at 2:28 am

To save ink on the tylenol deal, I found a tylenol pamphlet in one of those spinning things right at the front counter for the pharmacy. It had $1 off any tylenol product in it. I'm sure they're still there.


17 lynn@MavenofSavin July 19, 2009 at 8:19 am

THANKS LAURA - unfortunatley my region did not get those Dove coupons... but I am working on a scenario without!! THANKS for posting!


18 lindsey July 19, 2009 at 12:24 pm

Sara - since you work for Walgreens, do you know if the RR's print at every register? (I guess others may know this as well if your purchase was at other counters). More specifically, photo/cosmetics counters? My dad works for corporate and sometimes I get the friends/family discount coupons (I know one is coming up in a few weeks). I thought this would be a great way to save even more with RRs + extra off, but I know the transactions have to be done at photo or cosmetics (and my Wags tend to send me to photo regardless). I didn't know if I would be able to get the discount and also have the RR's print. Thought maybe you would know since you get the emp. discount. Thanks!


19 Tara Kuczykowski July 19, 2009 at 12:27 pm

Lindsey, I haven't tried the photo counter, but they do print at the cosmetics counter. I did the Coppertone deal there last week.


20 angie July 19, 2009 at 3:56 pm

yes, they work at the photo counter. it's a great place to check out when the other line is too long.


21 Jenn July 19, 2009 at 4:43 pm

I found this link for more Excedrin coupons for $1.00 each.
If you hit your browsher back button, you can print two of each. These all work for the BOGO Excedrin offer plus $5.o0 RR, which means you could get 8 various Excedrin products for FREE. (Limit 1 $5 RR per transaction.)


22 Laura July 19, 2009 at 8:46 pm

Lynn - good luck! I actually got a $2/1 Excedrin coupon from the Wags catalina the other day, which would turn the Excedrin deal into a moneymaker. I had purchased two dove deoderants, two dove body mists, and one Endangered Species candy bar, and used a RR coupon as well, so I'm not sure what triggered it to print. Anyone else know?


23 Lindsey July 20, 2009 at 3:22 pm

Not sure which Walgreens have these, but I'm in the chicago suburbs and there were prepackaged BOGO on the Excedrin products that the coupons are for. These also participated in their BOGO sale offer. So with the coupons, I got 4 for free in one transaction!


24 Ashley July 20, 2009 at 3:54 pm

I just went to my Walgreens in Boone, NC where I found a great deal!!! They have a 6 oz tube of Crest toothpaste and 8.4 oz bottle of Crest mouth wash packaged together and marked down to $3. I had a $0.75 coupon for Crest toothpaste so I ended up paying $2.25 for both!!!!


25 lynn@MavenofSavin July 20, 2009 at 5:04 pm

Lindsey - i found those too and used my $2 off 80ct or higher (the 2 40 boxes qualified) not that the cashier even looked at the coupons, but I like to be honest - so I made a $2 profit - WOO HOO!!


26 Kristen July 22, 2009 at 6:33 pm

Is everyone getting $5 RR on the Excedrin deal? My walgreens ad doesnt show any RR deals this week for it and wanted to check before I waist my time and dont get any. Thanks for the help!


27 Kristen July 23, 2009 at 9:29 am

Just wanted to let you know. I did try the excedrin last night and it did print. Went again this morning and bought the tylenol, a 29cent pencils and the $1 pens and only spent .38 after my $5.00 RR and $1.00 off tylenol and it printed 4.00 in RR ... woohoo. Im slowly getting the hang of this thing now!


28 Lennise July 23, 2009 at 12:37 pm

Can you get coupons from RP and other sources if you missed them in your local paper?


29 Katrina July 23, 2009 at 1:09 pm

I purchased four Hefty OneZip Storage Bags and attempted to use four blinkies. The cashier stated she could not accept four blinkies since I was only paying for two items. Is this correct? I have emailed Walgreens about their coupon policy.


30 Jan July 24, 2009 at 11:47 pm

Katrina-I have trouble all the time at the St. Louis area Walgreen stores using coupons for buy one/get one free as my cashiers always tell me the same thing, that I can't use a second coupon because I am getting the second item free. I am tired of holding up the line and waiting for a manager only to be told the same thing by the manager. I know others on this site say that they have no problem using 2 coupons in other parts of the country so I wish Walgreens would make a clear coupon policy that applied nationwide.


31 Laura July 25, 2009 at 5:47 pm

For anyone needing toothpaste - don't forget to save your Colgate Total coupons! I saw a cardboard display sitting on a shelf at a new Wags in my area that advertised Colgate Total 4oz on sale for $2.99 get $2.99 RRs back during the week of 8/9-8/15. The manager said that the store said someone had accidentally put the cardboard display out early and informed me that the RRs wouldn't print if I bought one this week, but he gave me one for free anyway. Nice! The stand was gone the next time I went to the store. What a nice preview!
