    GREAT JOB! The Walgreens i went to (not in my town) wouldn’t let me use the 2 wags coupons for the cottenelle. 🙁

    • nancy

      same… their register wont take them. it said item not found. but the cashier called the manager n did it for me.. i still didnt get the $3 RR tho.. 🙁

  • Molly

    I really dislike Walgreens and their workers. They are rude and treat me like i’m a criminal for shopping with coupons.. I refuse to go back to their store

    • nancy

      im totally agree with u. i wont go back there either. the cashier was like,, the coupon didnt go through, i dont wanna get in trouble for taking it,,, then she said, i cant use the manufactures coupons bc i used the store one and she just stares at me.

    Did you need the peep fillers? Not that I’m begrudging you a chance to buy a few peeps 🙂

    4 items, 4 coupons, plus one walgreens coupon that doesn’t count.. (and even if it did, you’d only need 1 peep, I think)

  • Jim & C

    Cashier told me I needed 2 fillers, the kids wanted the peeps 🙂

    • Deena

      Sure, Jim, the “kids” wanted the peeps. Yeah, let’s go with that … You can tell a closet peep nut a mile away! 🙂

      Nice trip! I am off to Walgreens for some peeps… I mean, toilet paper!!

    • Siobhan

      Sadly the cashier was incorrect about needing fillers. 4 MFC and 4 Items is the correct ratio, store coupons do not matter. The peeps are adorable however and I understand why your kids wanted them 🙂

  • Laurie

    Ah is the cottonelle deal still going on?

  • Cynthia

    The nivea coupon is applied to two item so she did need 1 filler item.

  • Heather G

    My walgreens has the nivea for $3.29 & won’t do it for 2 for $4.
