      Walgreens EasySaver, Coupons and Register Rewards Programs

      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

      store fliers.

      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,

      including prescriptions.

      How To Use the Walgreens Easy Saver Program

      1. Visit Walgreens Easy Saver Rebate Catalogs

      <https://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.

      Register Rewards

      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.

      If you have additional questions, visit Walgreens website or call their

      customer service center toll-free at 888-324-3028.
