Grab all your coupons and head to a few different Walgreens stores for some seriously fabulous deals! If you snag some awesome makeup on clearance, make sure you go to the cosmetics counter to check out. Store associates in cosmetics need to fill their sales quota each day for Beauty, Cosmetics, and Personal Care items. However, there are also incentives for you to check out there as well.
At the cosmetics counter, they are more aware of the makeup, beauty, and personal care items, that have coupon discounts in the Walgreen’s monthly coupon book. You can find these coupon books at the front of every store on a rack close to the entrance. Since you have to scan the coupons, it can be easy to miss available discounts. They also have a file filled with high dollar manufacturer’s coupons that are not issued elsewhere.
You can combine one manufacturer’s coupon with one Walgreens coupon per each item. Walgreens does have a different clause in their coupon policy. The number of coupons you use can not exceed the number of items you have in your transaction. So if you have coupons on every item like I normally do, and also have Walgreen’s store coupons, you will need to add what they call “filler” items for your coupons to work. For example, f you have 2 items with both manufacturer’s coupons and Walgreen’s coupons on each, then you have 4 coupons and 2 items. You will have to add 2 “filler” items to the transaction for the coupons to work. You can add anything you would like. At my Walgreens, the cheapest item they have is the small box of Nerds Candy found on the candy aisle. They are $0.29. Remember also that their Register Rewards ring up as coupons too, so make sure you account for those as well.
I had to pick up a prescription for another spine procedure I had this morning. My pharmacy didn’t have what my Dr. had ordered, so I went to a new Walgreens I have never been to before. Thankfully, I always carry my coupon files in my car, which I recommend to everyone. You never know when you will run into a new store, or an unadvertised sale. This Walgreens had a lot of great deals, and a lot of clearance items
The last few weeks I have been seeing a lot of nice Walgreen’s clearance finds, from people all over the US. While every store varies, always ask to price check if you have seen an item on clearance elsewhere, yet not marked down in your store. A lot of times things will ring up at the clearance price anyway, even if not labeled as so. It is also a good idea to ask a store associate to double check items you find in clearance areas. I have found a lot of things that people just set there that are not on sale. I also find a lot of identical items, but priced very differently. If you show a store associate, they can make sure that you get the correct clearance price. Always ask a store associate where their clearance items are. Even if you shop there regularly, clearance sections are always being moved. You don’t want to miss out on some potentially fabulous deals!
Also, don’t forget to grab your 3 awesome freebies I posted earlier (Here) as well!
Here are a few of my favorite deals and clearance finds from Walgreens so far this week:
Regular Price for the following transactions 1-3= $171.66
All three packs are on sale for $2.99
Separate transactions so you can use the rewards from them on your next purchase(s). Remember, you can’t use points for a transaction with an item that gives points as well. However, you can separate and ring them up individually. I have separated these transactions so I can use the rewards and so I will have individual receipts necessary to get a few rebates.
