Heads Up: 4 Day Walgreens Sales Flyer

wag logo

I found out last night on Hotcouponworld that Walgreens will issue a 4-day sales flyer.  This special sale will start tomorrow 8/19 and run through Saturday 8/22.  The best part about this special sales flyer is that Walgreens is having a special register reward promotion.  On this promotion you will get a $5 register reward when you buy $25 in products (certain restrictions apply like stamps and prescriptions).  This is a bit better than a $5/$25 coupon since with this one you can use coupons to lower your total before $25.

Wondering what kind of deals you can get?  before I jump into a scenario, you may want to check out the weekly sales coupon match ups.  Something you may want to consider grabbing if you need them are the Dr. Scholls products and the pampers diapers.  Since both register rewards deals ask you to spend $20 or more this additional register rewards make for an even better deal on both.

This would also be a great time to get some of the Huggies wipes if you can find enough tubs.  Can we dream about finding 9 of them?  Here’s a nice scenario:

$25.11 nine tubs of Huggies wipes $2.79 each (although I hear price has been increased at some stores)
-$4.50 when you use nine $0.50/1 coupons from 8/16 inserts
-$18 when you apply coupon in back to school booklet
=Pay $2.61 plus tax out of pocket and get a $5 RR back!  I don’t have 9 coupons but even without coupons this register reward makes it a really good deal still.

You can preview this special flyer here. Also make sure to read the fine print on the $5 RR if you take advantage of this deal as it seems it expires quickly. The last time they had a deal like this one (back in December), the register reward expired in a week.

Happy Savings!

    Do you get this flyer at the store?

    • http://www.commonsensewithmoney.com Mercedes

      yes! it should be available at your store tomorrow. if you have newspaper subscription I imagine it will come in there too. but don’t take me to court over that as I don’t have a newspaper subscription.

    sounds awesome, but I thought you could only use 1 of the $2 Walgreens huggies coupons per transaction. Check the back of your coupon. If I’m wrong, please let me know because this would be an amazing deal for me right now. Thanks for the info!

      Hi Victoria,

      That’s the beauty of Walgreens’ coupons. You use one but the discount gets applied to all of the items in your order the coupon is good for.

    where can i find the back to school booklet at? I checked in the 8/16 newspaper add and i did not see it nor the $o.50/1 coupon.

      Heather,

      The back to school booklet is available in stores and the coupon was available in your newspaper inserts. if you didn’t get it in yous you may need to order from a coupon clipping service or ebay.

    Im hoping to do this! Our wipes are 2.99-3.99.

  • Allison

    I did the wipes deal today, but I had something come up and I wasn’t sure if it was just at my store. On the back to school booklet, the front of the booklet says $2 off the Huggies, but the back of the booklet (where the barcode is located) says $1 off. I checked my receipt, and indeed, it only took off $1. Has anyone else noticed this?

    I am loving Walgreens lately, especially with all the new stores that have opened in my area, giving me 3 weeks of $3 off $10 coupons!

    My coupon says the same thing. I have not been able to use it because both Walgreens have been out of the wipes. I am going to try again at the end of the week.

  • Kristina

    I’m sorry, I looked in the post for this week’s deals and couldn’t find anything about a Pampers deal. Could you please let me know about this?

    I’m also wondering about the Walgreens Huggies coupon. I noticed it says $2 off on front and $1 off on back. What have people’s experiences been? If it rings up as $1 off, is a manager helpful?

    Thanks so much for the tips!

    The Huggies coupon took $2 off for me even though it says $1 on the back. I noticed it before I checked out, and mentioned it to the cashier. She said they were aware of the misprint, but that it does take off $2.

  • Allison

    I should have paid closer attention. My 2 bags full of stuff would have been $.47 instead of $1.47! :-) I may do this again and will certainly point it out next time.

  • Ashley

    Does any one know if this will work for photos? I know the $5 off coupons have worked for photos in the past but was wondering about this time around seen it’s a bit diffrent. Also the coupon is in this flier? Thanks girls

    I went to Walgreens yesterday and discovered a bunch of OTC medications on sale. I found Tylenol cold on clearance for $1.79, so I bought two and scored the $5 RR back for purchasing two Tylenol products. I also found Nyquil gel tabs on clearnace for $1.59. There were a bunch more, but I was in a rush so I didn’t get to look into them all!

    DO you know what deals are taking place in this sale?

  • Jennifer Rowe

    My coupon was printed the same way…the cashier said that they would work something out if it rang up the 1.00 BUT it rang up 2.00 off. Hope it works at your store too!

  • Kristina L

    I used the coupon early in the week and it gave me 2.00 off I tried it again yesterday and my store told me it was an error the 2.00 and that it had been changed to 1.00 off.

    I tried to view the 4 day sale from Hot coupon world. The site said that I needed to register. Well, I tried. When it asked who referred me, I put in Common Sense with Money and it came back that it didn’t recognize this. What do I list for this? Thank you and GREAT site!

    How many of the gillette razed coupons can be used in one order? There are 6 coupons out and 4 of them are for free stuff when you buy the razed or the refill. Has any one tryed this to get the $6 RR and the $5RR?

    • http://www.commonsensewithmoney.com Mercedes

      Marcia, If you are buying one razor and using a coupon to get something free because you bought the razor, I think you can only use one coupon. Because even if the other coupon is to get something else free then you need to get another razor to be able to use it.
      Hope that makes sense,

    Can I use RR that I already have or just coupons?

  • Emma K

    Marcia,
    I was in Walgreens the other day and I was going to get some of the Gillette Razors with the coupons for buy a cartridge get a free … and buy a razor and get a free … My husband needed razors but I ended up not getting them because for me at the time it wasn’t worth the money when I knew he would be fine with regular disposables.

    Mercedes, you are so awesome! I did the wipes deal today ( my store didn’t have 9 they only had 8) I bought:

    8 wipes tubs
    4 cans Lindsay olives
    2 caramels (Filler items)
    I had (4) .50 wipe q’s
    (2) $1 dollar of 2 olive q’s
    (1) WAGS $2 wipes q and (1) WAGS .99 olives q. plus a $4 RR from the Vitamin shampoo couple of weeks ago.
    Subtotal was 3.06. Paid 2.12 in almost 10% Yucky WA state tax. = $5.18
    got a $5.00 RR back. So, I technically paid .18 for tons of stuff!

    My walgreens will not accept both a man. coupon and a walgreens coupons for this promo. They changed their policy just for this one item.

  • Kelly

    I went to Walgreens today and received my $5 RR. Can I go back and buy $25 worth of stuff and use this $5 RR to pay and still receive another $5RR?

  • http://www.fregal.com Fregal

    My Walgreens said the deal was after coupons so I had to go back and buy more to hit $25. Did anyone else have this problem? It was not that big of a deal because I was buy diapers 2/$20 but still I did not want to buy any filler items.

    I am jealous of everyone who got the wipes deal. My Walgreens never had them. I checked two.

  • http://www.fregal.com Fregal

    Sorry I just reread it and realized it was before coupons. I was thinking about CVS…

  • Kristina

    Kelly –

    To answer your question, it didn’t work for me. I made my first trip and got 2 of the Pampers for $20 then 2 tubs of wipes to bring me up to $25. I used qs and paid $19 oop and got my $5 RR. I realized what an awesome deal the wipes were (and my store had tons!). So, I went back with all the wipes coupons I had and got 8 tubs of wipes (3.29 ea at my store), used my manufacture qs and the Walgreens qs and the $5 RR from the first transaction. It did not print me a new $5 RR.

    I was bummed because if I would have realized that I could have planned better. Used the $2 RR from the diapers deal towards a lesser amount of the tubs, then done the diaper deal again and used the $5 RR from the first transaction to get another $2 RR, etc. Oh well! I still did pretty good – getting 2 pkgs of diapers and 10 tubs of wipes for $21 oop & a $2 RR still waiting for me to use! Not bad considering the 2 pkgs of diapers would have normally cost me $24 before tax by themselves!

    Good luck!!

    p.s. I was just looking on another site that has a preview of next weeks Wags deals. Looks like the Huggies refills are going on sale for $5.99 – but don’t quote me!

      Thanks Kristina,

      I hadn’t tried to roll this RR so I wasn’t sure if it would.
