Walgreens Huggies Diaper/Wipes Scenarios Week of 3/8/09

I hope you've already printed your $5/1 Huggies coupons, but if not, do that first and then read this post for details on how to get ultra cheap name brand diapers!

There is also a $1 Wags coupon in last fall's coloring book for $1 off Huggies. It's an instant value coupon that should work on each pack you buy!!!

How are you having more than 2 coupons (or now more than 4 I guess)? Are you using more than one computer?
Also regarding that WAGS coloring book coupon, I used one last week for the Johnson deal last week. The cashier and manager both said it really was for only one product. It doesn't work like the in-ad coupons, but they did allow me to use it that way. (kind of them!)

I got everyone I knew to print them off for me, so I could have as many as possible. I wish I had even more to be honest...

Yay for the Huggies deal. With all the hype I've been hearing about it, I doubt there will be any diapers on the shelves at my WAGS on Monday morning (first chance I can go).

Andrea- I don't believe the coloring book coupon is for either the Gentle Care or Natural Fit type of diaper (I want to say it's for supreme??) so you couldn't use the high value coupons with the coloring book coupon, I don't think.

Maya- That's strange that your WAGS told you that. It's an Instant Value coupon and I've always been told that it's basically just like the instant coupons in the EasySaver catalog. I had NO problems getting $6 off my Johnson's products with one coupon- I'm pretty sure it doesn't say limit one or anything like that on it.

Ugh, gosh I hope somebody leaves me some diapers for Monday morning!!

I checked my coloring book coupon. It says it's for Supreme Natural Fit. I'm not sure if there is a "Supreme Natural Fit" AND just a "Natural Fit". I guess I'll see if it matches when I get to the store. I don't usually buy Huggies, so I'm not really sure about their names!

Maya, you should be able to print them twice at each site, and many of us already printed some earlier in the week. They were just reset to allow another two prints last night.

The clerk in the 24 hour Walgreens where I just went to get diapers (Saturday night, or really Sunday morning at 1 am before they were sold out)....said you had to spend $25 after coupons. I think he was wrong, but when you shop there after 11pm, they can't refund anything, so I didn't want to take that chance that the reward wouldn't print out if I only bought 3 $10 packs. I had to buy 4, which really diminished the actual savings.
The other 24 hour Walgreens near me was already out of Huggies Gentle care...again at 1am. So they will be out until they restock the shelves when the trucks comes in on Wednesday, right? I'm afraid there are not going to be a lot of us that can take advantage of this deal.

Did anyone else have trouble finding Gentle Care wipes at their Wags? My two didn't seem to carry any.

Reply

10 Deb March 8, 2009 at 2:09 pm

My Wags didn't hae Gentle Care wipes either. I ran to the Kroger next door to see if they had them, but I couldn't find them there either. Do they exist? My son is too big for the Gentle Care diapers, and I really wanted to be able to use those $5 q's!

Reply

11 Andrea March 8, 2009 at 2:15 pm

I found Natural Care wipes. I was able to use the q's for Natural fit products on the Natural Care wipes. When I bought them, I thought they were Natural Fit wipes, but now I see that they're Natural Care. Anyhow, the q's worked. I was also allowed to use Gentle Care q's for Natural Fit diapers. Someone said the q's were interchangeable and they were right. My coloring book coupon also worked on the diapers. I got 12 pks of diapers and 5 packs of wipes for less than $11. Woohoo!

Does anyone know if there is a limit on the number of times you can do the Huggies RR?

My Walgreens didn't print out Catalinas? Manager said the $25 had to be AFTER coupons?

Before I knew about the Walgreen's savings, I used (2) of my $5/1 Huggies Gentle Care Product coupons at Wal-Mart on 2 packs of Natural Care wipes. They were $5.86 each, and I had (2) $.50 off Huggies wipes coupons from the mail, so they came out to be $.36 each!! Not too shabby!

Also, I still haven't gotten my gift card in the mail from last month's ESR. Could I pay for all this with that gift card if I had it?

And then how do the RR work? Are they just $10 coupons towards any future (excluding the Huggies wipes deal) purchase? I've never used those yet either. Hopefully I can find some diapers!

Reply

15 Deal Seeking Mom March 8, 2009 at 6:00 pm

Jessica, that's never been the case in the past, and it's printed for others, so I'm not sure what the problem could be.

Michelle, yes, you could pay with your gift card if you had it. You're right about the Register Rewards. They're basically a coupon for a future purchase.

16 Rachael March 8, 2009 at 7:27 pm

I bought six packs in two transactions this morning and used RR and coupons both times. I used the coloring book coupon too--it worked fine and took off $1 for each pack of huggies! I wasn't counting on that to work but it did! I got the RR's back too.

The $5/1 Huggies coupon I just printed says $5 off any Huggies Gentle Care Diaper Product - will they let me use this on wipes or just diapers?

Reply

18 Deal Seeking Mom March 8, 2009 at 9:02 pm

The new ones can only be used on diapers, David. The first batch that you could print last week did not specify diapers and therefore could be used on wipes as well.

19 Samantha March 8, 2009 at 10:16 pm

I have heard that the $5/1 coupons can be used on the Huggies Snug 'n Dry diapers too; Is this right?

Reply

20 Terese March 9, 2009 at 7:43 am

The 2 Walgreens I've been in Ft Worth, TX say you must have spent $25.00 after coupons applied and before taxes...

Forgive my ignorance, but I've never heard of Register Rewards at Walgreens. I'm obviously new to this. Is this something I need to sign up for in advance?

Reply

22 Michelle March 9, 2009 at 8:52 am

I'm in San Antonio, TX and I went this morning. None of my coupons worked for the wipes! Bummer. So I had to get 3 pks of diapers (and the Snug 'n Dry worked fine for me, Samantha) , which wasn't as good of a deal. But the manager was kind of being nit picky about everything, so I might have to go back and try again. She wouldn't let me get the same size diaper and use more than one coupon! Not sure what the big dif is there but I just got 3 different sizes for each transaction and then used (3) $5 off coupons. I've never used the register rewards program and didn't know the coupons would expire so soon. They're only good for 2 weeks. We usually just get the Target brand diapers and they work really well for us. So I need to do a few calculations to see if this was all worth it!

23 Michelle March 9, 2009 at 8:55 am

Amy, I'm pretty new too, but the register rewards program is just that. When you purchase an item that has a RR, a coupon for that amount will print along with your receipt after you make the transaction. And like I said, they do expire, just so you know.

Reply

24 Michelle March 9, 2009 at 10:44 am

I went today and walked out with 12 packs of diapers and only spent $1.66 per pack! However, the second transaction was only diapers so it didn't print out another RR. The cashier said it was because you need to add another item in between the diapers when using the $10 RR on diapers. I suppose it makes sense. Anyways, used all $5 coupons on each pack for natural fit diapers and it worked great! I still have another $10 RR to see if another wags will have the size I need!

Reply

25 Deal Seeking Mom March 9, 2009 at 11:02 am

Michelle, you can't use the $10 RRs generated from doing the Huggies transaction on another Huggies transaction. If you do, another Register Reward coupon will not print. So it's better to pay out of pocket and use the RRs towards something else you need to purchase.

Reply

26 Michelle March 9, 2009 at 2:45 pm

Thanks! I finally read that after the fact. Oh well, it was still a great deal...i just used my other RR for the next purchases.

27 Lydia H March 9, 2009 at 4:45 pm

My Walgreens refused my printed out coupons!! I was furious! I made a special trip all the way there to get the savings! They had a sign posted at the register... I didn't even see it til the cashier pointed it out.

28 iggy March 9, 2009 at 5:11 pm

If you are sure that you should have received a RR and the machine didn't print it out, contact the Catalina Company at 1-888-8coupon, option 3. They will check out your receipt and if you do deserve the RR, they will send you a coupon in the mail. (There is a number on the printed receipt that will show them everything you purchased.)

29 Lydia H March 9, 2009 at 10:26 pm

I actually got diapers for $5.29 a bag at Target using my $5 coupon! A whole lot better than paying $10 a pack.. and not being able to use my coupon..

Reply

30 Michelle March 10, 2009 at 11:12 am

Ok this is the my last comment! I just had the feeling like I should go back and try the transactions again. So, I brought all my diapers back last night, returned them all, they gave me back my (7) $5 coupons, and I picked up 3 bags of wipes to try again. The manager that helped me was much more willing and helpful getting me the best deal!

The second time, the wipes went through with the coupon just fine! I think the first lady didn't know what she was doing. So, I did 3 transactions with 2 packs of diapers, 1 packs wipes each. Using (8) $5 coupons and (1) $3. My total was $36.78 - $30 RR, $6.78 total! Not too shabby!

31 Leah March 11, 2009 at 12:41 pm

When I went to walgreens today they said that because they were printed out coupons that I could only use one coupon. Is that right?

Reply

32 Deal Seeking Mom March 11, 2009 at 12:54 pm

Leah, I used three printed coupons in a single transaction just yesterday with no problems. However, Walgreens does not have their coupon policy listed online, so I can't confirm that this is for all stores. I've emailed them in the past to get it and didn't receive a reply.

Reply

33 Alli March 11, 2009 at 1:15 pm

Leah, I"m not sure if this helps, but I was able to use 5 coupons in one transaction (I bought wipes) with no problem. If I had gone to my closest Walgreens they may have had a problem, but I went to one where they didn't know me (just in case!) and they were great. I think it depends on the Walgreens, unfortunately.

Most of the clerks in Walgreens don't have a clue! Thank goodness there are so many stores. I just kept going until I found one that worked. One clerk made me spend $25 out of pocket, said the RR wouldn't print if I didn't actually spend $25 after coupons. Another said she could only take one coupon on the lot. I finally found a lady in the cosmetics register who said "let's try this, if it doesn't work, I'll refund your money." So I bought three $10 packs, used 3 $5 coupons, total was $15 plus tax, and the Register Rewards printed out. That was fun, got 3 packs for $6. I think I'll try it again!! I also tried to buy the .99 Garnier shampoo with the RR, they wouldn't take a manufacturers coupon for that one either.

Leah, you're supposed to be able to use 1 coupon for each item in a transaction. So basically, you can't combine two coupons for 1 pack of diapers. A transaction with 3 packs of Huggies diapers can have up to 3 Huggies coupons.

Reply

36 Leah March 11, 2009 at 2:56 pm

Thanks to everyone. I will try a different walgreens maybe tonight since they all just restocked today. I did try to buy three different packs but they said that since they were from the computer that they would only take one. I did e-mail walgreens and tell them about that store so hopefully they will let me know what there policy is for the future.

37 Krisi March 11, 2009 at 3:54 pm

Can I use the $5 Huggies coupon on ANY pack of diapers or does it have to be the Gentle care? I got two packs of size 1 last night for a friends shower but would like to get size 4 for my daughter.

Thanks so much for this deal! I was only able to print out two of the $5 coupons.. I had no idea that the online coupons were better than those I got in the mail from Huggies and in the newspaper (usually about 1.50 for diapers, 2.00 for pullups)... I used the two $5 coupons and 1 $3 coupon -- and I used them to buy snug and dry... i asked the cashier to see if they'd work, and they did! Now I'm going to go back and get some pullups to begin potty training my 2 and half year old.

Is this "Buy $25 worth of Huggies or other participating Kimberly Clark products at Walgreens and get $10 in Register Rewards! Huggies are $10." only for 3/8-3/14? Where can I find this information? Thanks

Reply

41 Alyssa's Mommy March 15, 2009 at 9:53 pm

yes "anonymous" it was only till 3/14. I did the math with all the diapers I got and I spent $72 for 12 packs og huggies. That's about $6 per pack. I got a great deal! And as a bonus I got a trial pack of the walgreens brand for free. So I guess I got 13 packs for $72.

Reply

42 HainesShopper March 16, 2009 at 6:32 am

Not sure how you did that Alyssa's Mommy. If you bought 3 $10 packs, minus 3 $5 coupons, you would have paid $15 and gotten a $10 RR back, ++ tax, so it should have cost you about $6 for three packs or $2 a pack. So 12 packs should have cost $24. Or are you not counting the Register Rewards? You had to ring them 3 at a time to get it to work out that way.

Reply

43 Alyssa's mommy. March 16, 2009 at 10:33 pm

Well my 1st transaction my I used 2 $3 and 1 $5 and my total was $21 with $10 rr. Next transaction my total was $18 and $10rr back with 2 $5 coupons and 1 $3 coupon. And the last one I used 3 $1.50 coupons and my total was $27 and got back a $10rr. So in total I paid around $70 for 12 packs.

44 Alyssa's mommy. March 16, 2009 at 10:34 pm

and I used the $30 rr to buy more diapers.

45 Tiffany March 19, 2009 at 1:40 pm

I was a little late on doing the whole huggies deal :( BUT on the bright side I did notice while I was at wags that their named diapers are4.50 a pack. I bought 8 packs! 36$ for 320 size 3 diapers which I think I did that math correctly brings it to .11 cents a diaper. Not too shabby! I can't wait until another huggies deal comes out. Word on the web is that the next deal is going to be at CVS!

For those of you who enjoy buying all of the product off of the shelf at your local walgreens, just remember this, a photo copy of a coupon constitutes fraud, so beware. Also, if you check, most if not all ads for rr's will state that there is only one rr allowed per customer, not transaction, this would allow some of you that missed out on the great deal to buy some items. Another point that many people miss- at the bottom of every walgreens weekly circular is a message, that I strongly suggest you all read. Each store is able to set limits of quantitys of items .
