    I hate to say it, but Walgreens makes everything so complicated that I just shop at CVS anymore. You are awesome for providing such informative breakdowns, though!!

    I totally agree with tisha! Today i tried to get a raincheck for an item that wasnt in stock because of the sale…and the walgreens cashier told me no, because there was a $5.00 register reward. I think im just going to stick by cvs more often for now on.

      I don’t think it is anymore. It was a few months back and many people still have the coupons (which haven’t expired), so that is why they are in the matchups.

    I tried to use a pampers manufacture coupon with the walgreens pampers coupon and they wouldn’t take both b/c the walgreens coupon says manufacture coupon only for walgreens, I said “doesn’t that mean it is your coupon??” They lady said “no”. When I got home I started looking at the book and all the walgreens coupons say the same thing!!

      They’ve all said that for ever — some stores are picky about it and others are not. The thing is that if they scan it, it will work. They just have to be willing to work with you.
