My Friend Fred’s Big Walgreens Fail!

CLICK HERE to join our new "I am a Couponaholic" Facebook Group.

A few weeks ago I posted a link to my friend Fred’s web site, Print Great Coupons. For those of you who do not remember, my friend Fred is a beginning couponer and he’s blogging about his experiences on his new web site.

The first time I posted about Fred’s site, he wrote about “when couponing becomes an addiction.” It was a post about his crazy hunt for some hot Walgreens Register Rewards deals. Well, Fred had another fail this past week at Walgreens. You can read about it here.

Extreme Couponing Tip: You can usually get two prints of most internet coupons. To find them in the easiest possible way, use our preclipped links that take you right to the coupon. Then come back and click the same link to get your 2nd print. This will save you the time spent searching for the coupon.

Never miss another hot coupon, deal or freebie again! "Like" Couponaholic .NET on Facebook, Follow us on Pinterest, Follow us on Twitter, Follow us on Instagram, Follow us on Google+ or Subscribe to our Daily Email Newsletter!

    Poor Fred!
    Not completely his fault, Walgreens is notorious for not having ample product on the shelf. ( Except it seem where you shop : )
    Every week I swear is going to be my last time , but I get suckered back in a deal. LOL
    Thanks for all you do and keeping me on track.

    • You’re welcome. He’s just going through his growing pains. We’ve all been there :)

  2. I went to wags yesterday…..I made mistake but I did not know firsthand. I got 2 coopertone sport spray, mq and in-store and rr $10. then got 3 bayers and two aleve, used mq for those items and one filler (V8) so I used RR 10.00. I did not get another $10 RR, I asked manager about this issue. She told me that both are from same company apparently I lost RR 10.00 on bayer and aleve. I wish I could not use first time from coopertone. GRRRRRR!

    • There must have been some other issue, because I use the Bayer RR to buy the Coppertone and another $10 RR popped out. Is it possible one of your Bayer/Aleve products was too small of a box?

      • Im with Steve there has to be another problem because I did the Bayer deal, then the Coppertone, then the Gillette and had no problems my $10RR printed fine…make sure you have the correct product and the amount hits the $20 or over.

      • no….it was not….Manager said bayer and coopertone are from same company. so I don’t get RR on bayer because I used RR from coopertone to pay for those. If I don’t then i will get 2 RRs.

        • hmmmm I used a Bayer RR to buy Coppertone and got another $10 RR on that transaction.

          • thats strange!!!! Manager must be not that smart after all. I will return items back at different wags and try again this weekend. Thanks for a head up!

          • You’re welcome.

    It was a hard week to stock up though even for the good Walgreens stores. Who would have known we were all going to go in there each wanting 7 boxes of Bayer Low Dose Asprin. I was there at like noon on Sunday and I was the last one that was going to get that deal, there were only 9 boxes left out of 3 different areas that had the $3 boxes of low dose asprin.

  4. I did the bayer deal today and the RR didn’t print, 1 bought 4 of one and 3 of another, each 2.99.
    When they rang them up they adjusted the quantity after scanning the first of each.
    When the mng rerang she scanned each one as I thought that was the problem and the RR printed.

  5. Be thankful if you were able to do the Bayer $10 RR… My store didn’t have enough products to do it the 2 times I went during week AND they refused to give a raincheck stating “We can’t manually print the RR$). They said there are 3 couponers that come in and wipe out all their products within 1st day of sale. :( I use to have savings before all the media & website stuff about couponing as I did it for 30 years. It’s sad when people take advantage of buying stuff they don’t need.

  6. I meant to say “buying more than they actually need.”
