New Walgreens Coupon Policy with Major Changes!

Walgreens has a new coupon policy and I’m sorry to say that the changes are not good for couponers. Here are the highlights of the major changes you need to be aware of:

-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.
*The previous Walgreens coupon policy allowed the cashier to adjust coupons down to the price of the item. Now, they will not accept these coupons at all.

-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.
*We were previously allowed to use coupons on the “free” item as well as the “buy” item. Now, only one coupon will be allowed with a Buy One, Get One Free Sale.

-Coupons may not be applied against any free item received in any offer.

Well I must say, that I’m a bit bummed by these changes. What do you think about them?

    I am afraid I also saw this coming. I am not a huge Walgreens shopper just because it is so complicated and I want to spend the least money out of pocket. I really don’t think I will be shopping there much any more because it gives me a headache just trying to figure out the deals. I am beginning to think the easiest place for me to coupon is grocery stores and sometimes Target. Thanks Jennie.

    I knew these changes were coming. I was hoping later than sooner. I know it is due to all the fraud and you are hearing about coupon fraud so much now. So sad for us honest couponers who utilize the savings to pay for other needed things, like in my case school and daycare for my boys. Sad day in this single mom’s life. However, I will survive :)
