Walgreens Coupon Policy NOW ONLINE!

After years of confusion Walgreens has finally decided to post their coupon policy online! Although I know it is probably not the case, I would like to think my many complaint emails and requests for this policy over the years had something to do with this new development! :)

The policy is well written and clear, especially on a few points that have long caused confusion for both shoppers and cashiers. Most notably:

Buy One, Get One Free Coupons

  • When items are featured in a Buy One, Get One Free promotion, up to two coupons can be used against the items being purchased, as long as the net price does not go below zero for the items being purchased.
  • Sales tax must be paid for any Buy One, Get One Free coupon offers, if required by applicable state laws.
This appears to be a change in their "official" policy. Although until now we never really knew what the official policy was! This means that you CAN use two coupons (or a $x/2 coupon) in combination with a BOGO sale. And you CAN use a BOGO coupon with a BOGO sale (you will still have to pay sales tax, which has always been the case).

Read the whole policy here. I highly recommend you print this policy off and put it in your coupon container so you have it handy the during your shopping trips to Walgreens.
