Free Oreos at Walgreens – Maybe Not?


Update: this seems to be working for some but not others.

I am about to blow the lid on this well kept secret my readers uncovered today at Walgreens.  But it is too good not to shared with those of you who have not checked the comments on this post.  The small boxes of Oreos that are on sale for $0.99 are also generating a $2 register reward when you buy two!!  Thank you Katie for being brave and trying this out for us.

I hope you forgive me if I just busted your new year’s resolution 😉

    I tried the same thing at a Wags in KS earlier this evening. Purchased 2 Chips Ahoy received the $2 RR then purchased the 2 Oreos on a separate transaction and NOT using any RR’s or Q’s to pay for it but no RR printed. May try again on the MO side of the stateline tomorrow.



  • Dave

    Correct me if I’m wrong but I also think these sizes are good towards the Nabisco rebate going on right now of $10 when you buy 10 until the end of Jan.

    • Maria

      The Nabisco rebate says Nabisco crackers (7oz-16.5oz) easy chesse and Planters nuts. Are Oreos part of the rebate?

    • Maria

      Sorry, you meant the ritz crackers….what size are the Ritz boxes

  • Tina

    From what I read on another blog it’s just the chips ahoy that is working.

  • I also did the Chips Ahoy and then in a separate trans. tried the Oreos but no go on the RR. A fellow bargain hunter also tried the Fig Newtons with the same results. It looks to me that it’s just the Chips Ahoy. And yes as someone said earlier these sizes do qualify for the $20 rebate.

  • Deb

    Just came back from Walgreens, the rr on two Oreos did not work.

  • Jennifer

    no RR for this morning when I tried the Oreos (they were out of Chips Ahoy) Paid cash and when I asked if the RR printed the cashier accused me of tryig to scam the system. I was appalled but nontheless no RRs for me with the Oreos : (

  • Jen

    I too tried the oreo deal this morning and the rr did not print. The Chips Ahoy on a seperate transaction did print the $2 rr.

  • Unfortunately I don’t think these qualify for the $10 rebate since the rebate is for Nabisco Crackers and I don’t see cookies listed on the form. (

    • Joy

      They are actually referring to the $20 rebate from “Save $55 Throughout the school year” booklet. You have to buy 10 cookies or crackers, 4oz or larger plus 5 Easy Mac and Cheese cups and 5 Capri Sun or Kool-Aid Jammers. GREAT Rebate!

  • Renee S.

    Yes, Dave, they do qualify for the Kraft rebate inside the little booklet.

    • charly

      The chip ahoy is 6OZ so I don’t think it work for rebate $10 when you buy 10

  • Katie

    I just went back and double checked my RR from my Walgreen’s shopping trip last night. I was expecting to get 4 RR and what I actually got were 3 RR and 1 Walgreens coupon that printed out. Didn’t look closely and assumed I got all of the RR I was expecting.
    So…I guess that means that the Oreos didn’t work for me last night.
    Mercedes and readers, I am SO sorry for this mistake!! I feel really bad and will make sure that I double check what I’m talking about before telling anyone anything next time.
    SO sorry for the confusion. 🙁

  • Talia

    If you have the Nabisco/Kraft coupon book that is yellow that says Save up to $55 throughout the school year on it (and it has the rebate form inside of it) there are coupons in the book for $1.00 off when you buy any 2 boxes of Nabisco cookies 4oz to 28oz so this would work on the Chips Ahoy you get the RR for!!!!

  • Dee

    Wow fix your post – I didn’t have time to read all of the coments and went out and bought the oreos. From you post it looks like Oreos are generating a RR

    • I am so sorry Dee. I thought I had updated it earlier but it seems the changes where not saved. I fixed it now.


  • amy

    Two chips ahoy worked for me today! Yeah!

    Don’t feel bad least some of us who did the chips a hoy got in on this amazing deal!!!!!

  • joann

    Oreos did not work…..

  • Layla

    Just came back from a Wags trip and the Oreos aren’t working on this deal. 🙁

  • Erin

    Just came back Oreos didn’t work for me either. I guess this time I should have double checked before I left for the store.

  • Erin

    Just came back Oreos didn’t work for me either. I guess this time I should have double checked the internet before I left for the store.

  • Jennifer H

    No luck for me in Fl either. I bought the 6oz Oreos for .99, oh well. My hubby is enjoying the Oreos though! 🙂

  • Lisa

    Help. Today I bought Visine, 2 2oz. Glade candles and 2 Chips Ahoy.

    Got 3 RR: $1 for Visine, $2 for Chips Ahoy and $3 for Glade. GOOD.

    Went to second Walgreens, bought Visine and 2 Chips Ahoy. Paid with $3 Glade RR and some cash got NO RR.

    Any explanation? I am an experienced WAGS shopper so this one has me stumped! Perhaps machine was broken. Usually get RR at this store.

    Confused but open to suggestions.


    • Hey Lisa

      can you compare the upcs of the Chips Ahoy? maybe they are different. thats one reason why it wouldn’t print.


    • Amanda

      I’ve had this problem before in WI…you cannot use RR to pay for items if you want another RR to pop out, even if it is for a completely different brand of items. Also–you cannot use a RR to purchase the same brand of product on the next order: for example, $3RR from Kraft to purchase another $3 of Kraft items…’s a little tricky but if you shop at wags enough and do lots of small orders, you can make it work.

      • Cricket

        Actually you can roll RR if the company is different. For example you can’t roll Head and Shoulders to Crest because the RR are both from P & G. But you could roll Head and Shoulders to Huggies because H&S is from P & G, while Huggies is from Kimberly Clark. When in doubt don’t roll, but you can usually check who the RR is from (printed on the RR) to verify if rolling will work. Hope this helps.

  • Lisa

    Hi Mercedes and Amanda,
    Lisa here… all four boxes of Chips Ahoy have the same UPC so that didn’t explain it.

    Also, I have rolled RR at this store before. However, I have not shopped there in 2010 yet. So, I was just wondering if some stores have changed their policy. This WAGS is most unfriendly to coupon users. I didn’t think stores could change how their RR print but perhaps they have.


  • DESY

    Oreos didn`t work for me either!

  • Loraleigh

    Oreos didn’t work, and the Glade RR didn’t work for me either. I bought 2 of the small fragrance collection candles yesterday and got a $3 RR back and went back today to try the same transaction and got nothing back. Those small candles aren’t even worth the $1 each I ended up paying for them.

    • Renee S.

      Did you use the $3 RR in your Glade transaction today? If so, that’s why a new RR wouldn’t print.

    • Priscilla.

      ask them if that Catalina machine has printed coupons that day. I had a problem at a checkout (photo counter in Racine, WI) & I said something about not getting the RR and she said, ‘oh, this one is broken’…cancelled the transaction & we went to a different counter & the RR printed no problem.

      Maybe that machine isn’t working, could be broken or out of paper. Another time, I noticed a red light flashing and the gal did something & the light stopped. I think she to put a new roll of paper in it.

      • Lisa

        Thank you for this input. I was the one who did a transaction at a second WAGS and got no RR. I didn’t ask the cashier to help because she is notoriously unkind. So, I just walked away, confused. But, I think it is possible that the machine wasn’t working. I can think of no other explanation.


  • Cris

    Chipsahoy worked for me! (Middle TN)

  • Dave

    The chips ahoy worked for me in Delaware and I also used a coupon so I made $1.02!!!

  • Heather

    I got 10 boxes of Chips Ahoy 99 cent boxes and received a $2 RR for every 2 boxes I bought. Awesome!

    • Kierstien

      Heather did you do 5seperate transactions to get the $2rr ea time?

  • Dorothy

    Metro-Detroit….no Chips ahoy in the store so I bought 2 Oreos…No RR. BUMMER.

  • Julie

    01/04/10 in WI I tried Oreo and Fig Newtons and neither worked.

  • Kierstien

    Is there anyway you can change the title of this? Because I am seeing a LOT of people still trying the deal and clearly its only working on the chips ahoy.

  • Denise

    So, if you bought the Oreos expecting the RR, what are y’all doing with them? Enjoying them or returning them?

  • Chris

    Tried the Oreo thing in FL yesterday before a correction was made expecting RR and got nothing. Went back today to get the Chips Ahoy and nothing printed for them either. When I asked the clerk, he said one wasn’t suppose to print for the chips. ARG!!!!!!!!! New to this whole thing and getting very frustrasted.

  • Lakshmi

    Oreos did not work for me either

  • No RR printed for me with the Oreo’s

  • Mila

    Well, I tried the oreos first and it didn’t work…So i was like ok, then I tried the ChipsAhoy and it printed up 2 RR. Then I asked the cash register, the manager came and looked it up and he corrected and printed one out for me….So I was happy with my free cookies turned around and got a case of Aquafina water….FREE altogehter….smiles

  • annette

    I tried the oreos and the RR did NOT print!

  • Mila

    Well, at first it didn’t print so I thought well, maybe it doesn’t work with OREO’s itself. But then I asked anyways, and the manager corrected it…..It doesn’t hurt to ask….

  • Lucy

    I purchased two chips ahoy last night and did not get the $2 register rewards.

  • Chris

    Can any tell me if it makes a difference if you pay for your items at the makeup checkout or the regular checkout when expecting RR. I purchased the Chips a couple of days ago and paid at the regular store checkout – didn’t get RRs (previous post). Went back yesterday and checked out at the makeup register and did get the RR’s. Go figure.
