(May 30, 2014) If you shop at Walgreens, you might be interested to know that their Coupon Policy has been updated recently. Here are the two major changes
“Walgreens will not accept coupons that exceed the selling price of an item.”
This change will probably affect a lot of Walgreens shoppers, as it will prevent us from using a coupon with a value that exceeds the price of the item the coupon is being used on. For example, if Walgreens has a product on sale for $2.90 and you have a $3.00 off one product coupon, Walgreens cashiers will no longer be able to manually adjust the value of the coupon down.
In the past, their coupon policy allowed cashier to manually adjust coupons down to the cost of the product being sold. But that won’t be allowed anymore. :(
“For offers when multiple items are purchased and additional items are free (buy 1 get 1 free; buy 2 get 1 free, etc.), the number of coupons applied to that offer cannot exceed the number of items required in the “buy” portion of the offer. Coupons may not be applied against any free item received in any offer.”
What this means is that we will no longer be able to use a coupon on the Free item in a Buy One Get One Free sale. For example, if Almay makeup remover is on buy one get one free sale, you can use one $4/1 coupon when you buy two makeup removers instead of two coupons. So only one coupon for the item we are buying, and no coupons for the item(s) that is free.
Sad day for some couponers, but I think we will be able to get through it! There are still so many awesome deals and savings to be had! :) Here’s the link to the full Walgreens Coupon Policy.
