How to shop Walgreens
In Ad Coupons—
In the Walgreens Sunday Ad there are usually plenty of Walgreens coupons. These can be used with a manufacturer coupon to increase your savings.
Another place to find Walgreens coupons is in their monthly coupon book usually found right inside the front door or at the registers. You can also use these coupons with a manufacturer coupon.
This is a “catalina” coupon program. A RR is a coupon that prints after you make a qualifying purchase. It is usually good for a set amount off of your next purchase. Many times they will offer a deal where you pay x amount for a product and get that same amount back as a RR. So use a manufacturer coupon when you are paying, and you have just made money on your purchase.
Paying with RR’s:
Walgreens registers will NOT allow you to have more coupons than items (this does not include store coupons). If you have one item that you are buying and you want to pay with one manufacturer coupon and one RR, you will need to find a cheap “filler item”. Look for clearance items or other cheap items!
How to shop Riteaid
In ad coupons—
The Sunday Riteaid ad usually has some in ad coupons. Sometimes they will say manufacturer coupon on them, but this is very misleading. You have to check the barcode of the coupon. If it starts with a 5 or 9 then it is a manufacturer coupon. If it starts with RC it is a store coupon that can be stacked with a manufacturer coupon.
At riteaid.com you can watch commercial videos that earn coupons. You can also use these with a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon. Most of the items that have video value coupons will go on sale sometime during the month.
Using a $5 off $25 coupon—
Always hand this coupon over first. This way the $5.00 will come off BEFORE all of your other coupons saving you more money.
Riteaid has a program called +up. This is a coupon that prints at the bottom of your receipt when you make a qualifying purchase. In order to get these you also have to have and use your Riteaid Wellness card. These are usually limited to one per household.
Another program Riteaid has is the Single Check Rebate (SCR) system. After you purchase qualifying items, you enter your receipt info on their website. At the end of the month you request your rebate and Riteaid sends you a check for the total of all your rebates. You can use this check at Riteaid or cash it just like you would any other check.
