  1. Summer says

    ” Here are the Shop for Free deals starting 7/17 at the drugstores. ”

    Is this the correct date?

  2. Ms. Walker says

    I think you made a mistake, you wrote these sales start 7/17 but you probable meant 1/17!

  3. Charlene says

    No Ms. Walker, it is just a template that I use and I have to update it each time. Sometimes I forget to change the date at the top. The sales start 1/22.

  4. Sabrina says

    The date is wrong for these if they start on Sunday (01/22/12). Thanks for ALL that you do! Love your blog!!

  5. Charlene says

    Ok it is just a small mistake. My deepest apologies that everyone is so upset. I have a generic template that gets updated every week. The template was created on July 17th. If I forget to change the date it reads 7/17. There is no reason to be upset- the deals start Sunday just like they always do.

  6. Carli says

    I didn’t even notice- these always start the following Sunday and they are very much appreciated. Thank you so much for all your hard work, Charlene! It was just a tiny oversight people- geesh!

  7. momrose3 says

    I got a walgreens q for $2/1 thermacare 2or3pk when i brought last weeks thermacare deal can i use that with the $3/1 ip? also those boxes from last weeks wags deal had $1/1 inside them for those who haven’t looked inside (at least mine did). so is the deal (2) @ $5.99 = $11.98 – (2) $2/1 wags q -$3/1 ip – $3/1 ip = $1.98 get back $5? is that right?
    thanks for posting these for us! Seems silly to me for people to get so upset about a date on a blog i’d think people would just be happy you do all this work for us. i know i am! thanks again :-)

  8. Amy says

    Carefree Liners $.99
    Use $.50/1 from 1/8 SS
    Final Price: $.49

    My coupon says it excludes those sizes…anyone else?

  9. roxy! says

    Good Question Momrose3 Can we use the walgreen coupon that was print out as a catalina machine plus the $3.00 print out?????

  10. Annye says

    I’m sure I’m missing something obvious, but where may I find the $1/1 Post Shredded Wheat, Grape-Nuts or Post Raisin Bran Cereals printable? I followed the link to, but it just gives information about the cereal, no coupon. Thanks in advance for your help!

  11. Claire says

    Seriously people. Learn some manners. You knew it was for next week. Why do you have to be so rude? Charlene, you do a great job. Thank you for everything you do and all the money you save everyone every day. I appreciate you and I know your other readers do too!

  12. annie says

    annye – the post and grape nuts coupon is found in the ss 1/15 insert.
    @roxy- yes you can as long as you have the same amount of coupons and items

  13. Charlene says

    Annye, I think it might be gone. I checked it last night when I started the list and it popped right up now I can’t see it either. That one I checked it and it had a Walmart logo too.

  14. Summer says

    I don’t see anyone being rude or seeming upset. It was mearly a question. I appreciate all your hard work Charlene as do many others.

  15. Amy G. says

    Charlene, There is a $1 off Triaminic Fever Reducer in the Jan. Coupon book, making it FREE if you have the $3/1!!!

  16. Chela says

    For walgreens register rewards deals, does “limit 1 coupon printed per offer” mean per person or per transaction?
    i.e. bars on sale for $1 each, free after $1RR

    I.E. buy two in one transaction and you only would recieve $1 RR
    and if you do both in diff transactions you would recieve both RR seperately.

  17. Chela says

    Charlene, that doesn’t answer my question. I meant is there a limit to how many register reward offers you can get per item because under a deal with RR it says limit 1coupon printed per offer. so is that limit 1per week?

  18. Charlene says

    Well first all the information you need can be found in the article that I suggested. Second this is what you said:

    “I.E. buy two in one transaction and you only would recieve $1 RR
    and if you do both in diff transactions you would recieve both RR seperately.”

    So yes purchase them separately and buy as many as you want. Buy more than one at one time and get one Register Reward total. There are other quirks to using Register Rewards that you will want to understand and I suggest you read all about them so you understand fully how they work.

  19. Chela says

    so the “limit 1 coupon printed per offer” just refers to the item? not the customer?

  20. Charlene says

    No. That means in this case there is a $1 Register Reward. You will receive a grand total of one Register Reward per transaction. If you purchase 20 boxes in one transaction you will receive one Register Reward. If you go through the line 20 different times and pay 20 different times, you will receive a total of (20) $1 Register Rewards. You may not use the Register Rewards to pay for another box of the same item or you won’t get another Register Reward. It says one printed per offer. So one per transaction is what that means.

  21. Chela says

    So i can do how many transactions for the same item with RR as i want? Then why did the cashier tell me there was a limit?

  22. Tiffany says

    Chela…you should read the aritcle on her page at

    It will help you to understand how everything works. It is difficult to answer all questions, but if you read through her site, you will learn how to be a successful and honest couponer =)

    Just so you know, each store can limit the number of “like items” you are purchasing to make it fair for the next customer. I have learned that each Walgreens is different in how they limit transactions and/or number of “like” items purchased. It is better to get to know your store manager and ask them. Also remember you cannot use the RR you received in the first transaction to buy the SAME item in a second transaction, or it will not print another RR.

  23. Charlene says

    Chela, the store can impose limits if they want. If you are planning 2 or 3 transactions you will be fine in most cases. If you are planning 27 transactions I would consider that very unreasonable and you probably will have some problems.
