There are different types of sales and coupons advertised each week that at times it can be confusing to newcomers to differentiate between what is a coupon and what is a sale item. Pictured above, below the blue arrows, is an example of a Walgreen's weekly store ad coupons.
Using Manufacturer Coupons With Walgreens Ad Coupons
A manufacturer coupon is found in the newspaper inserts, magazine, on product packaging, mailers or printed from the internet.
When purchasing a single item, Walgreens accepts one manufacturer coupon with a Walgreens coupon for the purchase of a single item, unless prohibited by either coupon offer.
If the manufacturer coupon is more than the value of the item after the Walgreens coupon is applied, the amount of the manufacturer coupon will be reduced. For example, if you were purchasing an item priced at $5 and you had a Walgreens coupon for that item for $2 off and a manufacturers coupon for $4 off, the manufacturer coupon would be more than the price of the item and would be reduced to $3.
- Item Regular Price - $5
- Cost After Walgreens $2 Ad Coupon - $3
- $4 Manufacturer's Coupon - If deducted would be more than $3 so the value of the coupon would be decreased to $3.
- Final Cost of Item - Zero
You may purchase multiple items with multiple identical coupons as long as there is sufficient stock for other customers to buy. Walmart allows their management the right to limit the amount of items purchased.
There are also times that the coupon may have a limit posted on it. If that is the case you will not be able to buy more than the limit during your visit.
"Buy One Get One" Weekly Ad Coupons
Pictured above (upper right) is an example of a "Buy One Get One" (BOGO) Walgreens weekly ad coupon. In this example it is "Buy 4 12-packs of soda, Get $2 off". The specific sodas the ad applies to are listed as 7 Up, A&W, Sunkist, Canada Dry or Hawaiian Punch.
You would be allowed to purchase one of each kind of soda or all of the same kind, but you would have to purchase four to get the $2 coupon value. You could then use four manufacturer's coupons for the items your purchase for additional savings.
If the ad is "Buy One Get One Free" (pictured in the middle of the example), you may use two coupons against the items being purchased as long as the price does not go below zero.
Sales tax will be charged for any "Buy One Get One Free" coupon offer, if required by applicable state laws.
