How To Maximize Your Savings at Walgreens
By Donna L Montaldo, About.com
One of the most popular stores among deal hunters for finding big savings on
every day products such as toothpaste, razors, candy and other similar
products is Walgreens drugstores.
There are four basic ways to save when shopping at Walgreens.
EasySaver Catalog Rebate Booklet
Walgreens offers the EasySaver Catalog rebate booklet which is published
monthly. Shoppers can obtain a copy by visiting their local stores or
viewing and printing it from the Walgreens' website. Locally, the catalog
can usually be found near the store front entrance along side the weekly
Inside the EasySaver you will find the monthly promotional rebates on select
products, listed along with a few "free after rebate" items offered. Also
listed are the monthly store coupons and other promotional items.
Buy any of the items listed in the booklet, send in the rebate along with
your register receipt and a check will be sent to you. You can earn an
additional 10 percent by requesting the rebate in the form of a Walgreens
Gift Card. You can use the gift card toward any purchase at Walgreens,
How To Use the Walgreens Easy Saver Program
1. Visit Walgreens Easy Saver Rebate Catalogs
<http://www.walgreens.com/store/rebateclub.jsp> 1 online, or pick up the
catalog at your local Walgreens.
2. Shop online or at your local store. Purchase items listed in the
catalog that you can use. When shopping online, look for products marked
3. Save your store receipts and online invoices or packing lists,
then claim your rebates at the end of the month making certain you mail your
submissions within the allotted time period.
4. When mailing your rebate requests, include:
* Completed Total Earning Tally Sheet
* Customer Information Form found inside the EasySaver Catalog
or on the online Tally Sheet
* Original Walgreens' register receipt(s) with the rebate
items circled with the Offer Number(s) written next to the price.
* Make a copy of everything you submit, including register
receipts, until your receive your rebate check or gift card.
Only one submission is accepted per month and only one refund issued per
family, household, address or envelope.
It can take eight to 10 weeks for your rebate check to be delivered.
If you elect to receive your rebate in the form of a Walgreens Gift Card,
the card can be "recharged" with future rebate amounts. The turnaround time
is less that waiting for a check, usually two to three weeks. Once the card
is recharged you will receive a postcard with the amount listed or you can
check the status online <https://www.web-rebates.com/walgreens/> 2.
"Rolling" or "Growing" Your Rebate Money
After you receive your rebate check, return to Walgreens and repeat the
process of purchasing promotional items, using your rebate money to pay for
your purchases. The more items with rebates that you purchase, the more
rebate money you will have to buy more products, without spending any of
your actual cash.
Combine manufacturer's coupons with "free after rebate" products. When you
do this, plus earn the additional 10 percent on your gift card, you will
spend very little out of pocket money after your first initial purchases.
Using Multiple Coupons
Store coupons can also be found in the EasySaver Catalog which can be
"stacked" with manufacturer's coupons. You may luck out and find an item on
sale, along with an in-store coupon plus an manufacturer's coupon and pay
for the balance with your gift card.
Walgreens Register Rewards are Catalina coupons which print up separately
from your register receipt after you purchase qualifying items. The Register
Rewards can be used like cash on your next purchase.
Catalina machines are generally programmed to print one Register Reward
coupon for one qualifying item. If you purchase more than one of the same
qualifying items per transaction, you will only receive one Register Reward
In order to get more than one Register Reward coupon when purchasing more
than one of the same qualifying items, request that the each item be rung up
on a separate transaction. If you purchase different qualifying items in the
same transaction you will receive one register reward for each item.
Note: In some areas the request for separate transactions may be denied.
More Tips for Maximizing Your Savings at Walgreens
As mentioned earlier, the best scenario for maximizing your savings is to
purchase sale items with a store coupon and a manufacturer's coupons plus a
Register Reward and pay for it with your Gift Card (if you end up owing
anything). However, Walgreens' registers do not accept more coupons than
items. To get around this, pick up an inexpensive item so that you have more
items than coupons and the transaction will be processed.
Drastically reduced items and end-of-season deals can often be found on the
end of the aisles at Walgreens. By combining items you find at 75 percent or
more off with coupons you can maximize your savings.

How to Maximize your Savings at Walgreens
One thing I learned, if you get a receipt to use on your next
purchase, such as getting a $2 coupon to use on your next purchase
when I bought four 12-packs of Coca Cola products. I went in and did
the four 12-packs again, and used the $2 on that purchase. The
register did not kick out another $2 certificate. If you are using
one, the register will not give you another one. I should have held
that certificate until another purchase.
