This morning after church, I made a stop at my local Walgreens to do a little shopping. I did great today, so this week wanted to share a few tips on shopping at Walgreens.
Register RewardsWalgreens offers a program called Register Rewards, which offers you coupons back on certain items you buy each week. You can use RR to buy things in the store on your next visit.
Here are a few tips for getting and using Register Rewards.
Stacking couponsWalgreens does allow you to stack coupons on their products. This simply means that you can use a Walgreens “store” coupon with a manufacturer’s coupon to get additional discounts. Walgreens coupons are often found in their ad each week, and they also have a monthly booklet that you can find in stores.
A few more tips for WalgreensWhen using coupons or Register Rewards, you cannot have more coupons than you have items for. You need to really think through your transactions sometimes. I always try to have some filler items in my cart if I need them. Usually it’s a piece of candy or pencil, whatever happens to be cheapest!
Also, if you live near a Jewel-Osco Store, they may let you redeem your RR at their stores. I know the two near me allow it, and I think in the Chicagoland area they do too. I would check for sure with your store before trying.

My Walgreens Trip
I also had a $4 RR from last week that I used. My total was $11.03. I saved $17.00, AND I got $6.50 of RR to use next time. The toothbrush had a $2 RR and the razors had $4.50! Today I saved 61%!
