Walgreens Deals for Week of 10/3/10: Free Lip Balm, Razors & Toothbrushes

Deals at Walgreens

As far as drug store deals go, I’ve given all my love on this blog to CVS. There are two other stores that offer similar dealerific scenarios, though: Walgreens (AKA “Wags” in coupon blog lingo) and Rite-Aid. There aren’t any Rite-Aids where I live, so I’ve never bothered to figure out how to work those deals. If you have one near you, there are plenty of bloggers sharing Rite-Aid match-ups, so you should be covered.

And then there is Walgreens. In my personal experience — and based on what I’ve read on a lot of other coupon blogs — Walgreens is just not nearly as “coupon friendly” as CVS. Plus, their deals are more complicated to work and their Register Rewards (RRs) are a lot more restricted than CVS’ Extra Care Bucks (ECBs). There is one Walgreens that I love in Kansas City (it’s at Antioch and 135th, for anyone from around here – check out at the cosmetics counter for the best service!), but the others that I’ve shopped at in the area have ranged from lukewarm to truly bad experiences. Which is why I don’t bother sharing the deals with you guys, because I don’t want to subject you to that — especially if you are a new couponer.

All that said, sometimes Walgreens have such amazing deals and freebies that I just can’t pass up a trip. And I think this is going to be one of those weeks. {If you want a quick How to Shop at Wags 101, check out this post from Money Saving Mom.}
