    I was just at the Walgreens at 95th and Antioch in Overland Park and they said they changed their coupon policy. If you use a coupon on an item that has a RR, the RR will not print out. They said we can only have the discount from the coupon OR the RR. I dont know if they all are switching to this or not.

    • Tracie says

      This is not happening. The person who told you this is blatently wrong. The RR will not generate when you use SOME coupons because a RR is really a manufacturer’s coupon. Sometimes, the code on them is exactly the same as the coupon you use, so the RR will not print. The entire of issue of no RR with using coupons is simply an urban legend.

        Valerie’s right and so is Tracie – I was told the same thing at the same store but I know it’s just because the cashier is confused. My RRs are MQs (manufacturer coupons) and count that way, so just toss in some cheapo filler items to be able to use the RRs when you run into this problem – do the math before you get to the register so you can grab really cheap fillers. I tossed in several Reese’s cups on sale for 33 cents each to use my RRs yesterday at a different Walgreens. Also, be aware that if you use a MQ like a $1/2, it actually counts as 2 MQs, not one, which will confuse the heck out of you at the register as well as any unawares cashier when you try at the same time to use a RR, thinking you’ve only used one physical coupon on 2 items (true) and that therefore your MQ count is 1 (false – it is 2) and you can safely use your RR.

          I’ll add that Walgreens also won’t let you use more coupons than you have items, so I also had to throw in an extra item this week in order to use my RR.

  2. Eric in OP (also KCJohnGalt at SD) says

    I’ll add that I was told yesterday by a cashier at a different Walgreens that within the next 2 weeks they’re going to undergo training and beta-testing on a new card-linked system (perhaps like CVS?) and then plan to roll it out for customers sometime thereafter. The motivation I believe was that they were losing money on a lot of these deals the way they are structured now.

    I don’t know ANY more details, but I personally think they’re going to limit deals like CVS does now by tracking them on the new card.

    Next time you’re in a Walgreens, ask the manager about this – I am today at the 95th and Antioch location.
