Walgreens coupon policy changes May 2014

VB pointed out that Walgreens seems to have recently changed its coupon policy, and not in our favor. The specific changes that jump out at me:

  • Walgreens will not accept coupons that exceed the selling price of an item and no cash back is ever provided in exchange for any coupons.
  • For offers when multiple items are purchased and additional items are free (buy 1 get 1 free; buy 2 get 1 free, etc.), the number of coupons applied to that offer cannot exceed the number of items required in the “buy” portion of the offer.
  • Coupons may not be applied against any free item received in any offer (See 7 above).

    They have been becoming less and less coupon friendly and I have been shopping at Target more and more. Won’t miss Walgreens at all.

    Very disappointing. All the Walgreen’s in my area are extremely coupon friendly, so this is a rather surprising shift in the corporate thinking. Curious to see if it will last, or they will receive too much negative feedback.

    So….yet ANOTHER reason to NOT shop at Wags? LOL Haven’t really shopped there since they started the Rewards card thing…and I don’t miss it at all!

    No reason to shop at Walgreens. I ONLY go to Walgreens if I can get a deal WITHOUT RRs; I don’t mess with those any longer. I also find if I end up getting the extra bonus points I have very little choices to use them because if you buy something with bonus points you cannot redeem bonus points. Ah Walgreens- you stink! Another reason to be done shopping there.

    I already avoid wags as much as possible. Hate the points thing! I basically go out of my way not to shop there because its a hassle.

    It is strange how I really don’t miss it either. I was a huge Walgreen shopper until the rewards program.

    These changes make $$ sense, though we don’t like them. They were probably under some pressure from manufacturers who didn’t understand how they could offer coupons on free items, or offer coupons over the value of items.

    I still get good deals at Wags, and shop at CVS when there are good deals there.

    I don’t shop at Wags much, but I don’t see what the uproar is over their policy. Seems fair enough.
