Walgreens Coupon Policy Update: Trouble for Consumers

Walgreens Coupon Policy Update: Trouble for Consumers

Last week saw a Walgreens coupon policy update. That means major changes in couponing for Walgreens’ shoppers.Some of the changes from the Walgreens coupon policy update have affected BOGO deals. The store will only accept one coupon on a Buy 1, Get 1 Free sale. Previously, Walgreens would accept two coupons with BOGO deals.Another change from the Walgreens coupon policy update is that shoppers cannot use a coupon that is of higher value than the product itself. For example, if you have a Suave shampoo coupon for $1 off but the shampoo is .98, you would not be eligible to use the coupon. The legal fine print of the Walgreen’s coupon policy update states that, “this policy may change at any time without advance notice or advertisement. Any coupon offer not covered in these guidelines shall be accepted at the discretion of Walgreens management.”If you are a frequent Walgreens’ shopper, make sure to pay attention to any coupon policy changes.

I included the new coupon guidelines below:

  1. All coupons are to be presented to the cashier at the time of checkout.
  2. Walgreens does not accept expired coupons. Coupons expire at 11:59 p.m. on the expiration date at the point of sale, whether in store or online.
  3. Walgreens will not accept fraudulent or counterfeit coupons as determined by Walgreens.
  4. Coupons and their face value cannot be exchanged for cash or gift cards.
  5. Competitor’s coupons shall not be accepted by Walgreens.
  6. The number of manufacturer coupons, including Register Rewards®/Savings Rewards manufacturer coupons, shall not exceed the number of items in the transaction. The total value of the coupons shall not exceed the value of the transaction. Sales tax must be paid, if required by state law.
  7. 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.
  8. Coupons that appear distorted, blurry or altered in any way shall not be accepted; all coupons must have a clear and scannable bar code.
  9. 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.
  10. Coupons may not be applied against any free item received in any offer (See 7 above).
  11. Paper coupons will be processed before digital coupons.
  12. Walgreens shall not accept coupons for items not carried in our stores.
  13. Walgreens reserves the right to limit quantities to customers and employees.
  14. Manufacturer coupons must include a valid redemption address.
  15. Coupons may be subject to advertised offer limitations and all other limitations and restrictions on the applicable coupon or product.
  16. Walgreens shall accept manufacturer coupons for items that are on sale.
