Walgreens shopping … why bother

When I think of all the deals we used to run at Walgreens – – now I can’t even make a straight purchase without the system messing up. FirstBorn cracks “gee, it’s like they don’t want you using coupons and saving money”. har de har har

Prefer toothpaste deals?  This week they have $4 Rewards when you buy 2 Crest, but no coupons, so hard pass.  Only grab ’em when they’re free is my motto.

If you’re still interested, here’s the link to $3 Crest toothpaste.  I’m grabbing the pictured items because the discounts are the most.  Garnier Whole Blends products give you both a $3/2 and $5/2 coupon (the latter automatically appears at checkout), so your effective cost is $1.98 for two.  I’m not using pick up because I want to dump a few Register Rewards and 35¢ savings from the 10% code isn’t worth worrying about, imho.

So what actually happened?  I left the five items in my cart because I wanted to pay with Register Rewards.  When I got to the store I opened the APP and watched as the $5/2 Garnier coupon disappeared.  Then everything emptied from the cart.  I added the five items back, but never was able to find the $5/2 Garnier coupon, although shelf signage offered a $4 Register Reward for buying two Fructis.  I tried this deal twice, once with each shampoo.  No Whole Blends coupon came off, but $3/2 did come off Fructis.  When you buy a Seventh Generation 19 oz dish soap on sale for $3.19, you earn $2 in Rewards and that part worked.

Got home and the Whole Blends $3/2 coupon appears, but not the extra $5/2.
