I was quite happy with the results of last week's $5/20 Walgreens coupon--I ended up spending about $5 OOP, getting $7 in Register Rewards, and I have $5.99 in ES rebates coming. I'm really liking the savings atmosphere at Walgreens these days! Here's what I picked up:
In a separate transaction, I attempted to purchase this:
However, when I handed the cashier the $1 StudioLine EasySaver coupon, she informed me that the coupon was only for the new line of products, not the marked-down ones I picked up (they were .99, not the 2/$3 the stickers indicate). She seemed rather disgruntled, mumbling something about not being supposed to do that. I said okay, why doesn't she take those items off my order?
When she realized I wouldn't be buying the items, she seemed to have a sudden flash of cash register brilliance and grudgingly attempted to scan the coupon. It worked perfectly--the above cost a total of $2.31, and the Chapstick produced a $2 RR.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Just ask... and make sure you're more than courteous, especially if the cashier is being difficult.
