Walgreens 6/11 (Maureen) – $11.67 Profit on $72.40 in Merchandise (116% Savings) PLUS $20 in Movie Cash!

NEVER MISS A HOT DEAL! SUBSCRIBE TO OUR DAILY EMAIL NEWSLETTER!

UPDATE: I received my $10 e-Movie Cash certificate codes by email late Monday afternoon (6/12) and had no difficulty printing them.  However, please note that Internet Explorer and Firefox are recommended browsers for printing the certificates.  I used Firefox.  The certificates opened in Adobe, so I was able to save them and also print a copy of each one.  They don’t expire until August 31, so I saved them to have a back-up in case something happened to the prints.

I went to Walgreens early Sunday morning (6/11) because I wanted the Schick razors for the free movie cash promotion.   The basic deal is a good one, but I had added incentive because I had three account-specific perks to use: 1) a get 7,000 points when you spend $20 “Thank you” perk, 2) a get 3,000 points when you spend $15 “Thank you” perk, and 3) a 5x everyday point booster for being my birthday month.

I also wanted to get the 10x Balance Reward point booster coupon advertised in the weekly ad.   If you look on the front of the current Walgreens weekly ad, you’ll see a promotion to get a coupon at checkout for 10x everyday points if you redeem points in a transaction.  I bought two newspapers at the first Walgreens I went to today and redeemed points to pay for the papers, but did not receive a checkout coupon for 10x points.  The cashier said the Catalina machine was working and called the manager.  The manager looked at the promotion in the ad, but said he had no control over Catalina coupons.  Then the cashier fished a Catalina out of the trash good for 5,000 Balance Reward points when you spend $20 and showed it to the manager.  The manager asked me if I wanted that coupon to compensate for not getting the 10x booster coupon, and of course, I took it and used it on my first Schick transaction.

Then I went to a second Walgreens a few miles away and made another small purchase and paid with Balance Reward points.  No 10x checkout coupon printed at that store, either, so the problem at the first store was not a machine issue.  I made the second Schick transaction without the 10x booster coupon.

I called Walgreens’s customer service when I got home, but the rep said it was a Catalina issue and transferred my call to Catalina Marketing.  After a 20-minute phone call, the Catalina rep opened two tickets and sent me an email for each one so I could upload the two receipts showing my point redemption.  I don’t know how they’ll handle it, and the 5,000 points when you spend $20 coupon covered the points I would have received had I used a 10x coupon on each razor transaction, so I didn’t lose bonus points, but if you are counting on that 10x Catalina booster coupon to use on the Schick deal (or any other current Walgreens deal), be warned that the coupon did not print for me earlier today.

I am not posting the newspaper transaction at the first store, but here are the other three transactions I made at Walgreens this morning.

  1. Did you get to print out the actual tickets? I got my code and clicked on print but then it said it couldn’t. I thought maybe if I tried another browser but can’t because I’ve entered my code already. 🙁

    • Maureen says:

      I just uploaded my receipts this morning. Actually, I couldn’t upload them because the upload program kept telling me something was wrong with my image files, so I sent both receipts separately by email. I am waiting for approval.

  2. I have same problem like Maureen, end up sending by email. Wonder if it’s a hiax?

  3. Still waiting on my code did you get yours yet Maureen?

  4. Now I get a message no image detected what a waste of time!

  5. I’m taking mine back for a refund.

    • Maureen says:

      Are you taking them back because your receipt was denied or because you haven’t heard from them? I haven’t heard back from my emailed submissions.

      • my last effort i got a hold of customer service and they wanted me to email my receipt to them. now im waiting again. I never received a code just every pic i sent them was denied for no image! i did the playtex and another one last week the same way with no problems.

        • Maureen says:

          When I tried to upload my receipts yesterday, I kept getting a message that I needed to use a jpg file format, but my receipt images were already in that format. So I sent my receipts separately in emails to hydrobot@uploadreceipt.com.

          I received my two redemption codes by email late this afternoon. No problems redeeming the codes or printing the certificates, but I made sure to use Firefox to redeem the code because Internet Explorer and Firefox are the recommended browsers. The certificates open in Adobe, which is great because you can save them on your computer and print when you’re ready to head to the movie theater.

  6. I had the same problem yesterday customer service said they were having problems and finally gave me both codes

  7. ginger jackson says:

    I went to walgreens today and its was so bad. they told me to call cs and they told me I could not use coupons and get the points for the razors. I had several coupons loaded to my account but they told me I could not use them because I received my beauty points and you can only get points once in a single. receipt Also they said you can never get points if you use points. I lost alot of points. I dont know what I am doing wrong. Thank you

    • Maureen says:

      I don’t what happened, but the cashier’s information is 100% wrong. Call Walgreens CS (have your receipt in front of you because you will need the reference number). The CS rep will sort it out and apply any credits that are due you.

      • I did call and they said the store was right. They told me I could not get the points that were clipped to my card because I received beauty points for reaching $50. Also I purchased 4 razors and used coupons and they told me because of the coupons I did not spend enough They told me I did not know the right rules.

        • Maureen says:

          Unless they changed the policy after I shopped on Sunday morning, they are simply wrong.

          What exactly did you buy for razors and use for coupons? Are you sure you bought the sale razors that are part of the promotion? Did you redeem any points when you paid for the order?
