Walgreen's Diapers $2.50 per pack!

Here's a hot tip from Affluent Pauper for you baby's mommas out there! =)

Walgreens jumbo diapers are buy one get one free this week.
Regular retail is $8.99, so they're retailing for $4.50 this week.

You can get them for less with a coupon. Here's how:
Go to your pharmacy and pick up the red "Prescription Savings" booklet and use the $2 coupon that's in there to get them for merely $2.50 per pack (which is 15c per diaper - most diapers are 25 or 26c).

There is a limit of 4 packs for the BOGO deal, but most stores allow you to process additional packs in separate transactions. For the $2 Prescription Savings coupon, the register will usually take $2 off each pack, but it depends on your store's register.

Remember that since the $2 coupon is a Walgreens coupon rather than a manufacturer's coupon, you can keep it and re-use it.

Affluent Pauper says: "In my opinion, the Walgreens Premium diapers (in the light green packs) are better quality than Pampers and Huggies."

The cashier at Walgreens insisted that I relinquish my pharmacy coupon. He said it was a manufacturers coupon.:(

FYI- the coupon technically says that it is to be used on regularly priced diapers only.

Stephanie said...

I've always had to give up my Walgreens coupons...

The pharmacist and store manager looked at me like I was crazy. They said they'd never heard of any pharmacy coupon booklet. Is this just a regional thing? I am in the Phoenix metro area.

I still bought 8 packs because it's a great price and I like Walgreen's diapers better than Pampers and Huggies-even the non-premium ones are excellent.

I asked for a booklet at the pharmacy a month or so ago and was told that you only get that Prescription Savings booklet if you sign up for Walgreen's Prescription Savings plan. There is a fee for the plan.

There is a $1 off coupon in that 99 cent coloring book that was in the toy section at one time.

Kristin is right, the pharmacy booklet coupon says for non-sale price diapers only.

If you still have a copy of the October EasySaver booklet, there was a page in there about the pharmacy booklet - I showed that to the pharmacist when I asked for the booklet and got it without a problem. However, because the coupons are valid on non-sale prices only, I don't know that I'll use any of them.

I have used the diaper coupon on them when they were sale priced at 5.99 with no problem. In my opinion, these diapers are more like white cloud, which is little rougher and stiffer feeling. And they run just a little smaller than the LUVS that I buy. I use a different diaper at night though. But still a good diaper for the price.

It didn't work for me but $3.50 for a pack of diapers is still an okay deal.

A couple of months ago I sent my husband to get diapers and he said that the clerk insisted on keeping the Walgreens coupon. I called the store, spoke to the Manager and the Manager agreed that I did not have to surrender the Walgreens coupon, since only manufacturer's coupons need to be surrendered. So he found the coupon and I drove back to the store to pick it up. Since then, several clerks have insisted that they need to keep the coupon and I've had to explain that the Manager says that the coupon does not have to be surrendered as it's a Walgreens coupon and not a manufacturer's coupon. Walgreens has "coupon practices", which are guidelines that are open to interpretation by individual store Managers (which they don't publish to consumers), but they do not have any actual coupon policies per se. I called Walgreens corporate (847-914-2500) this morning to clarify their standing on surrendering the coupons, coupons that say limit 1 but the cash register will let you scan unlimited amounts, uses of coupons on sale items, etc. The staff member said that Walgreens has had several meetings lately regarding coupons. The current standing is that the usage of Walgreens coupons is up to the discretion of your local store Manager. I recommended that they implement a coupon policy so that store Managers nationwide are on the same page.

I've done this deal many times over the past several months. I do not cut the coupon out of the booklet. I hold it up and point to the coupon for the cashier to scan. Only once did a cashier get her scissors and cut it out to keep. On my next visit, I went to the pharmacy and got another booklet. There are advertising signs in my store that say to ASK about the prescription saving plan to receive the coupons. You don't have to sign up. I haven't had a problem with this. Good luck!

Krista said...

I just asked for information to read about the W-Card plan and was given the coupon booklet, but the cashier insisted on cutting out my coupon and keeping it.

She almost tried to override the system, because it took off $2 per pack, but the coupon said limit 1. Thank goodness she let that one go.

The deal is working fine for me. My cashier balled my coupon up & threw it away. I asked for it back. Just remember, you have to find the training pants packs with Walgreens spelled out on them to use the coupon. The ones with the capital "W" won't work.

HotMommy said...

I couldn't use the $2 off coupon because it is for regular priced diapers, not sale priced diapers.

I just got 6 cases of diapers for my soon to be grandchild in March - I got BOGO and used the 2$ off coupon from the pharmacy, prepurchased a W gift card which loaded 10% on my WCard and scanned my WCard before my total purchase - paid only 1.59 per pkg not including tax! DDD
