Is it rumored that they will do away with their ESC program?

I had one other question - when they have a coupon in their flyer for example Reynolds wrap at 89cents - if you buy more than one is each supposed to ring up to the sale price of 89cents or is it one coupon one item only??

Yep, Patty it is :(
For walgreens coupons, you only need one copy and it will ring up for the total number you have....so for the $.89 Wags coupon for reynolds wrap, you only need one coupon no matter how many you get!

I got my glade candles sunday..i was so excited. free candles and alum foil as always thank you!!

Okay...got a nasty rumor to report from the manager of a Wags by me... He had trouble with my RR today (they wouldn't print up) but commented that at least they would be gone in a month and he would not have to deal with them. Ugh! Seems like maybe the rumor is true after all. Saying bye bye to RR stinks!

I know you can use a Wags & Mgr coupon together (love learning new things!) but I was wondering: since coupons usually say '50 cents OFF' does Wags consider their sales circular 'coupons' that say for instance "Al Foil 89 cents' a coupon?

thanks!

Funny!!!

I got my two glade candles- yeah, right? Well, when I got to the car, I checked the receipt...what??? Was not supposted to be 9.99!!??? I got the large size (both) and they cost me 3.00 each! That'll teach me to go w/ kids!!! ;-)

HItting...yes the Reynolds wrap flier coupon is a coupon.

Paul...oh dear, way to start rumors .I hope the RRs don't go. I thought it was just the ESC. Many if Walgreens takes away both we are in trouble!

Courtney said...

I got my free Candles and foil last night ..thanks. I also got the Softsoap and shaving cream! Thanks again for the tips. I sure hope they dont do away with the programs we love so much. I would think Walgreens would want to keep us coming back.

Today the lady at walgreens said I can only use one RR at a time. Is that true?

Frugal Coupon Living said...

you can use 1 rr or coupon per item (thus is you have 3 rrs you want to use and 2 coupons - mfr) you need 5 items. save your rrs if you do not have enough items.

register rewards are going away along with the rebate book? I thought we were going to see more RR...guess I was wrong
