Walgreens coupons are among the best ways to save money on a wide range of items from the basic necessities to photos, contact lenses and medicines, among others. Use these coupons while shopping online or in one of over 8,200 stores across 50 states as well as in the District of Columbia, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico to enjoy discounts, rebates and refunds, even free items.
But for first-time users of these coupons, their use can be bewildering because of the variety of coupon programs available as well as the differences in their policies and practices. Fortunately, it only takes an hour or two to learn the basics of the two most common Walgreen coupon programs, namely, weekly and monthly. Here are a few pieces of information to get you started.
Start with the weekly coupons, which can be found in three ways:
• Printed coupons on weekly Walgreens ads located in front of the stores and pharmacies;
• Sign up at the official Walgreen website for the weekly ads to be delivered to your chosen address; and
• View the online ads at the website.
Be sure to read the terms and conditions of each specific Walgreens coupon code sourced online before entering it into the appropriate field. This is also true when buying from the brick-and-mortar stores.
Manufacturers’ coupons can also be used along with Walgreens coupons but the terms and conditions will be different in case only the Walgreens-issued coupons are used. Keep in mind that Walgreens will accept a single manufacturer coupon with its own coupon for buying a single item, unless there are restrictions in either coupon offer.
Think of monthly coupons as stepping up your couponing game. The Walgreens Monthly Coupon Books can be found alongside the Weekly Ads but their validity periods are different. Monthly coupons are valid from Sunday of the first week of the applicable month until Saturday of the last week of said month.
The first pages of the book contain the Instant Value Coupons (IVCs) that can be used in a manner similar to the weekly ad coupons (i.e., used with manufacturer’s coupons). At the back are the monthly rebate offers, which are useful when combing coupons and in-store sales. In the inner pages, the special offers for contests, free samples, and buy-one take-one, among other opportunities to save, are featured.
Understandably, you may make mistakes in combining coupons but with trial and error coupled with thoughtful examination, you will soon get the hang of it.
