Walgreens Coupon Policy

I will not sugar coat it, this change to the Walgreens Coupon Policy basically stinks! They have made it where it is not going to be as easy to coupon there.

See the Official Updated Coupon Policy where it is on their website.

Here are a few of the Highlights:

The old policy stated when a coupon exceeded the price of an item, the coupon would be adjusted down to the price of the item. If the item was .99 and the coupon was for $1, they would adjust it down to .99, well not anymore!

We use to be able to use coupons on “free” items on a BOGO sale, if Purex was on sale BOGO Free, we could use a coupon on each item, the one we paid for and the free one. This is changing also. With the update, you will only be able to use a coupon on the item you “buy” and not the free item.

The other change I noticed is the BOGO deals. The updated policy says this  “When items are featured in a Buy 1 Get 1 Free promotion, at least one product needs to be purchased. A maximum of one BOGO coupon is permitted per two qualifying items in a BOGO offer.” The way I am reading this is in order to stack a BOGO coupon with a BOGO sale, you would need to buy 4 items and then use your BOGO coupon to qualify per their policy of qualifying products

What do you think of these changes?
