Walgreens Information & Deals

These are the current general policies for walgreens. they are subject to change anytime.

What is RR? register rewards or RR are a "coupon" you get from a machine called a Catalina machine next to the register at Walgreens. There are items or amounts you have to buy to get these. you CAN use coupon and still get the RR.

Why didnt my RR print? ok you were supposed to get an RR and it didnt print and the cashier or manager is ignorantly telling you its cause you paid with coupons. NOPE sorry try again. RR commonly doesnt print simply due to the machine being jammed OR not even turned on!!

Can i use RR to pay for things that give me MORE RR? yes and no. you cannot use the same RR from the same promotion to get more RR. you can however pay with RR from a different company or sometimes different promotion and still get RR. not too long ago there were 3 seperate SC Johnson promotions with RR runnning and you can pay with one on another deal and still get RR. pay attention to posts that let you know this is going on. your best bet is to never use the same RR from the same company on another company deal. not until you have heard its working for sure to produce more RR

What is a 7 day coupon i hear people talk about? 7 day coupons are the ones in the current weekly walgreens add flyer. you dont even have to clip them. just scan them at the register.

Can i use manufacturer coupons with easy saver coupons or 7 day coupons? darn patootin you can. if you get a cashier or manager who says you can't they are either lying or dont actually know and are making up rules on the spot. it is COMPANY POLICY to be able to combine these coupons with actual manufactuere coupons.

Why do i hear people talk about fillers? what are those? fillers are items you get to pick up overage with either RR or combining walgreens coupons with manufacturer coupons. you can only use ONE manufacturer coupon per item and walgreens counts RR as a manufacturer coupon. so if you had 3 items and 3 coupons already you would need a SMALL item like candy or tissues to be able to also pay with RR.

when you get a walgreens flyer that shows an RR deal and then also has a see the sunday paper for more savings thing on the add, SAVE THE ADD!! this will really come in handy with those cashiers and maangers who say you cannot use coupons and still get RR.
