I still have not decided if I like Walgreens.

I had to go to two different Walgreens and still did not get exactly what I wanted. I even went on Tuesday. Both of them were already out of most of the rebate items. The only free rebate item I could find was the allergy medicine, which I will use. I just wanted some of the other rebate items also.

After coupons my total was $17.78. I had money on my gift card from previous rebates. I got $8 in RR and will get $3.99 in rebate for the Wal-zyr. I was able to get all this though without using anything from my budget since I had the gift card.

So, I am kind of happy with this purchase. I wish I could have gotten more rebate items. I am hoping that next week they will have more items in stock so that I can use my $8 RR to pay for the rebate items. What I did not like was I used most of what I had on my gift card and was not able to get much in rebates to replenish it.

How do you feel about Walgreens?

My other deal of the week was more Chocolate Honey Bunches of Oats. I had 3 $2 off coupons left and 3 $1 off coupons that had been in the paper. One of the stores in my area ran it for 6 for $10. So, I could not pass it up. This cereal is a little sweet for us to eat for breakfast. Yesterday I posted how I am getting creative using it. Has anyone else found a creative way to use it? I would love more ideas.

  1. Does your Walgreens accept Internet coupons? Mine does not ๐Ÿ™ So its almost not worth going to (almost :-))

  2. My Walgreens does not accept internet coupons. In fact Walmart is the only store in my area that will take the internet coupons. All the others refuse to take them. I usually end up using my internet coupons at Walmart with price matching ads from other stores. That is what I did on the cereal this week. I price matched at Walmart so that I could use the internet cereal coupons I had.

  3. I got frustrated the few times I tried working Walgreen’s deals, so I sort of gave up and decided to stick with CVS. Maybe one day I’ll give them another try.

    I hope next week brings you lots more bargains!

  4. My Walgreen’s is okay. I’m not nearly as thrilled with it as I am CVS. Even the professionalism at CVS is superior. I will probably be hitting up my Walgreen’s tomorrow for the rebate items. I hope they are not out.

    Hello from Florida,
    I got a good deal from Walgreens this week where I got 3 softsoap hand soaps, 2 soft soap body wash, and some toothpaste for $13.00.(I’ll be getting a 10.00 rebate so really the total is $3.00) I’m new to the CVS/Walgreens game, but I was happy with that purchase. The trouble with Walgreens is that you use more out of pocket and have to wait for the rebate. Also, the past 2 trips I’ve had to go back in for a refund due to being overcharged. Both times for items I found on the clearance shelf. All Walgreens in my town have a clearance shelf and I have found some great things.

  6. I wish we had CVS. They sound so much better!

    I like Walgreens the day after a holiday so you can get all the holiday candy for dirt cheap.
