Walgreens Updated Their Coupon Policy= Bad News

General Guidelines 

  1. All coupons are to be presented to the cashier at the time of checkout.
  2. Walgreens does not accept expired coupons. Coupons expire at 11:59 p.m. on the expiration date at the point of sale, whether in store or online.
  3. Walgreens will not accept fraudulent or counterfeit coupons as determined by Walgreens.
  4. Coupons and their face value cannot be exchanged for cash or gift cards.
  5. Competitor's coupons shall not be accepted by Walgreens.
  6. The number of manufacturer coupons, including Register Rewards®/Savings Rewards manufacturer coupons, shall not exceed the number of items in the transaction. The total value of the coupons shall not exceed the value of the transaction. Sales tax must be paid, if required by state law.
  7. 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.
  8. Coupons that appear distorted, blurry or altered in any way shall not be accepted; all coupons must have a clear and scannable bar code.
  9. 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.
  10. Coupons may not be applied against any free item received in any offer (See 7 above).
  11. Paper coupons will be processed before digital coupons.
  12. Walgreens shall not accept coupons for items not carried in our stores.
  13. Walgreens reserves the right to limit quantities to customers and employees.
  14. Manufacturer coupons must include a valid redemption address.
  15. Coupons may be subject to advertised offer limitations and all other limitations and restrictions on the applicable coupon or product.
  16. Walgreens shall accept manufacturer coupons for items that are on sale.
The General Guidelines apply to the categories below and are to be referenced in addition to the specific coupon category guidelines.

The biggest setback for us couponers, is the fact that we 
can no longer get free items if the coupon exceeds the 
item, even by a penny. 

Usually sale items end in .99 and many coupons end in 
zero, so a total bummer. 

Also, if there is a buy one get one free sale, only one 
coupon can be used on the item that you're buying.

$10 off any $10 Gap Purchase

Now until June 30th you can score a free $10 off a $10 purchase. Just order online but reserve in-store and $10 comes off automatically when you give the cashier the code:RIS10 . I don't know if it's one per account or online purchase. Check back later for updates.

Save $25 on a $30 purchase at Sears Autoparts !

Wow, I found this coupon floating around, and many people are saying that they have no problems with using it in-store.

Also, other stores like PEP Boys take competitors coupons.

#Yesallwomen Maya Angelou Passes Away

A poet, an activist, author, singer, dancer and the list goes on. Many words can be used to describe Maya Angelou, but all of them fall short.

Lets take a look back at her most notable poem, " Still I rise," so that we may be uplifted on this day of mourning.


I know this is a coupon blog, but who are we if we ignore social issues?

#yesallwomen hashtag was spawned out of the horrific tragedy, which left several people dead.

A lonesome misfit, as described by people who knew him, decided to end the lives of others as well as his own.

Before the killing. however, he left a series of videos and a declaration as to why people had to die-- apparently rejection is the main reason innocent lives were lost.

No, #NotAllMen are violent against women, but #YesAllWomen have to navigate a world where those who are look the same as those who .

Learn how to find clothing, shoes, and other items for only a penny

Dollar General Penny Items: How to find and Purchase

If your are a constant or sporadic reader of this blog, then you know that I've had a moderate amount of success finding and purchasing items for only one cent. You may find plenty of penny items, however, there's no guarantee that you will leave the store with them. Why?  If it was left to each store manager, the odds of you leaving with a penny item are none.

First, you need to familiarize yourself with known penny items, you can do this by viewing my videos below:

ATTENTION: For an exclusive list of over a hundred items (including UPC's) that you can purchase for a penny, leave your email address in the comment section below.

Second, now that you have an idea of what to look for, you need to know more. Like if you see seasonal items from the fall, summer,winter etc,. the likelihood of these items being marked down to a penny are very high. Below is a list of additional items to look for:

Rugs brown dots (beware of the new brown dots)
purple dot is 60% off

Mens and boys Gray dot f11 or s11 Dept 320
Mens pink dot sp12 dept 320
Womens Pink dot f11 or sp12 dept 310
Blue dot shoes
Pink dot handbags
Girls cars shirts w/ green stars (these are $7.50 in my store)
Bobbie Brooks blue dot girls
Kids - blue dots FA12 Dept 300 ,
pink dots S12 Dept 300, excluding girls disney
Mens navy canvas slip on shoes marked F11

Amazing value w/ ABC or D under price
Dollar days
Green star messenger bags
Mini porcelain tea sets
Disney pillow pets ending 709
Tangled and Spiderman sun glasses
Happy Napkzq,,per sing a long
Oragami kits w/ butterfly on front
Hooded baby blanket
Toy story rocket ship
Disney comfy throws

ASTV ( As Seen On TV):
Forever lazy
Loop wizard
Fringe magic
Irenew bracelets
Wiggle stoppers
Style snaps
Snuggie varsir
Extend a bra
Fashion sharpers
Comphy Feet slippers
Amazing hangers

Forever Cuddlee

garmin gps' ringing up 90% off
Some digital cameras and wii accessories 90% off
jWin webcams
wii boxing Gloves
high school Musical 3 for the X box 360
Blue dot electronics

Third, Know your rights as it pertains to being a Dollar General customer. 9 out of 10 times the cashier will inform you that they're not allowed to sell you a penny item -- this is not the case.

Once a customer brings a penny item up to the register, and that item is scanned, by their own rules located in their SOP manual, they must sell you the item.

Don't back down and don't be disorderly. You don't want to fight. Just politely inform "them" (manager included) that you are well aware of their policy, and that you would be willing to wait while they lookup the information in their employee handbook.  If they still refuse, you have two options left. You can walk away or call corporate.

(615) 855-4000 (Mon-Fri 8-5 pm EST) 

Yes, since they're only open Monday through Friday, this would be the ideal  time to do your penny shopping.

Of course you can always reach Dollar General representatives outside of those hours, but you may or may not receive a good result.

Just a reminder: Kohls $20 off $35 online only or (in-store with kiosk)

As I mentioned earlier, Kohl’s is offering up a sweet promo code through May 26th —> snag $10 off a $25 purchase with the promo code HONOR10 at checkout! Well, this deal gets even sweeter as you can actually stack the promo code HONOR10 with the promo code MEMORIES – which will ALSO take an additional $10 off a $25 purchase. Please note that to stack both of these codes, you’ll need to have at least $35 worth of items in your cart, as your total will need to be at least $25 before you apply the second code. So basically, by stacking, you are scoring $35 worth of items for only $15! Sweet, right!? :)
Also note that the 20% off promo code SAVE20 can be stacked with one of the $10 off $25 couponcodes mentioned above too, but remember you can only use 2 promo codes per order. To break it down easily for you, if you plan on spending more than $50, you will save the most money by using the promo code SAVE20 with ONE of the $10 off a $25 purchase codes above. If you plan on spending around just $35, use both HONOR10 and MEMORIES together. Please note that shipping is $5.95 or FREE on orders of $75 or more.
AND if you prefer to shop at your local Kohl’s store, just head here and click the Get Your Pass link (at bottom of the red banner) to print an in-store coupon valid for $10 off a $25 purchase.
Even better, through May 26th, you’ll earn $10 Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent in store, online & at the kiosk on all sale, regular and clearance-priced merchandise. You can then redeem your Kohl’s Cash coupon from May 27th- June 8th.
