Well, what do you know! Walgreens pulled a fast one. Not only did they release the $5/$20 coupon on Coupons.com, they also released it on SmartSource.com and Walgreens.com. Perhaps they’re trying to gain a wider audience? Either way, it’s a new trend to watch, and we’ll see where it goes. Now why didn’t CVS think of this?
Are you looking for a good way to use this coupon? I was hoping there would be some good double-dip deals, but unfortunately it looks like these may be a thing of the past. Many of the coupons that are in both the October and November EasySaver Rebate guides have the same bar codes on them, so it’s not likely that Walgreens will honor them both. We’ll watch and wait while a few brave souls attempt to use them tomorrow, but in the meantime, I’ve created this scenario from just the regular weekly deals and one November monthly deal.
