    My Walgreens would not let me use the Walgreen Coupon Book with the manufacturer coupons yesterday. The manager was called over and he said the coupons in the book are actually manufacturer coupons.

    =(

      OMG these stores drive me crazy. They are not manufacturer coupons and managers should know that. Manufacturer coupons do not start with 00000… on the UPC numbers. I would suggest calling Walgreens corporate and letting them know your issues with that store.

    I just came home from picking up my pictures and figured I would try a few deals. I asked the only two employees when I walked in if the book coupons could be combined with manufacturer’s coupons. They said no problem. I went to check out and two different employees were working. They gave me a hard time and finally said that if the computer took them, they’d honor them. They went through no problem. Walgreens needs to get its story straight.

  • I had a similar problem and then some. I went to a different Walgreens than my usual one and the computer kicked back my manufacturer coupon for Touch of Gray and one other (can’t remember which one now). The nice but clearly uncertain clerk took a guess at why they might not be working (b/c I had already used the Walgreens coupon) but I told him that was definitely allowed. He believed me (as he should). He called the manager and got the okay to override. Whew! Then I pulled out my catalinas from past purchases but they wouldn’t take those b/c I had too many coupons. I know the drugstores don’t allow more coupons than items, but I didn’t think the catalinas counted for that. Was he correct? In hindsight, I’m really mad for not using a pack or two of on sale envelopes as a filler. 🙁 And for that matter, if you’re buying one item that has a Walgreens coupon and a manufacturer coupon, will that work or do you need a filler for that as well?

    Thanks!

    Jenn, I had the same problem with # of items matching # of coupons, catalinas they consider in that number, so you have to buy however many filler items to use the # of catalinas you have. Some days I use fillers, others I save my catalinas’s for another trip, just depends on the filler (to me a good filler would be under $.40, which works this week, because I need more notecards for the kids for school).

    • I get confused among the drugstores on their policy regarding # of coupons/items. I’ll have to make note of this issue with Walgreens. I was also surprised today when I did a quick stop at Walgreens to pick up 2 of the free Purex samples (with the $1 printable Qs), and the cashier wouldn’t let me do the second one. No biggie – I’ll just drop by another day for it, but I was still surprised b/c I thought “per purchase” was essentially “per item,” as opposed to “per transaction.” No?

      Thanks,

        Jenn, it is per item and not per transaction. It’s amazing that Walgreens does any business with the wacky rules they come up with.
