New Walgreens Coupon Policy

Well this is very interesting.  To be honest I thought I’d never see the day that we got a nice coupon policy from Walgreens IN PRINT and actually on their web site!!  I think Walgreens might be the store I get the most complaints about so I am very happy to see this.

You can find the coupon policy here at Walgreens.com.

A few notes:

* The number of coupons may not exceed the number of items.  We all know that of course and why fillers are needed at Walgreens.

*”In the event that any item’s selling price is less than the value of the coupon, Walgreens will only accept the coupon in exchange for the selling price of the item. Coupon redemption can never exceed the selling price of an item and no cash back is ever provided in exchange for any coupons.”  YEAH!  So they CAN and SHOULD adjust a coupon down.  This is such a pain when you have a .99 item and a $1 coupon in particular and I have found one in ten cashiers will actually adjust down for you.  The rest just say no.

*”When purchasing a single item, Walgreens accepts one manufacturer coupon and applicable Walgreens coupon(s) for the purchase of a single item, unless prohibited by either coupon offer.”  I have had several questions about stacking coupons at Walgreens.  The confusion seems to stem from the fact that some Walgreens coupon book coupons say “Manufacturer coupon” at the top.  They are indeed store coupons and can be stacked.

*”When purchasing multiple items, Walgreens accepts multiple identical coupons for multiple qualifying items as long as there is sufficient stock to satisfy other customers, unless a limit is specified. Management reserves the right to limit the quantity of items purchased.”  Some of you have had issues with this as well and it sounds like the store can determine how many you buy.


*”When items are featured in a Buy One, Get One Free promotion, up to two coupons can be used against the items being purchased, as long as the net price does not go below zero for the items being purchased.”  So you absolutely CAN use a Buy One Get One coupon on a Buy One Get One sale and get both items free.  You just need to pay tax!

What do you guys think?  Will this help clear up any unpleasantness at your stores?  I have to say even with this policy I still get jittery shopping at Walgreens.
