I love both Wags and CVS, but Walgreens is by far better! I love that I can just use my gift card and just keep making money without even spending anything out of pocket. Hope I made it in time!

It's so easy to get things for free at Walgreens! With mani's, the ESC and Wags coupons, you can score some really awesome deals! I don't think my husband will ever run out of razors :)

Lisa said...

I'm new and have fallen in love with WAG's. I work about 40 miles awa from home...that means driving 80 miles a day...I'll take the savings were I can. Today i saved least in my eyes...$22.49. Thank you for input :)

vbjones said...

I love it becaise the rebates on the gift card allow my out of pocket to be 0 most of the time\!

Lisa McIlmail said...

I love Walgreens! I have been stocking up on diapers for my daughter and love their premium brand.

Marin... said...

Am I comment number 5? I have been loving their sales lately! For a couple months there, the FARs were out of this world. I also enjoy having the rebate card to replace my OOP expenses.

Heather said...

I am a newbie to Walgreens, so far so good!!

It probably says this somewhere - but what are Easy Savers? I see that a lot and need to get on board!! Thanks!

ughh I just missed it. I was at Walgreen's tonight and spent $35 on 2 Entertainment books, 2 boxes of Puffs a Pedi Egg and 3 refills and some gum

Curious about something?

Why didn't you split that into 3 transactions? You could of atleast saved another $15 dollars. Actually if you have used the $5 off the first on the second and so on and so on you could have probably gotten all of that for under $20.

Just curious if there was a reason why you didn't?

I am a die hard Walgreens shopper. Please, please pick me. Our family can use all the help we can get right now!!

VintageChicChick said...

Okay, I am a major die hard Walgreenie. :) In our little town, it's either Walgreens or Walmart. I'd rather go to Walgreens... much quicker and easier.

Kim F. said...

I am a Walgreen's fan, because they really have everything you a mini Super wal-mart...and they are everywhere! So accessible...and such good deals!

Allie Z said...

Well I guess I'm not fast enough to be in the top 5!

Way to go with your savings today. I hit 4 different Wags for the killer deal on laundry soap. More to go tomorrow too!

I really like the 7 day coupons and the easy saver coupons. Its great when you can team them up with a manufacturer coupon!! I also love the 10% extra they give for requesting a gift card for your rebate!! They have an awesome and super duper rebate program!!

MY mom has taught me in the ways of rebates and coupon shopping. I am 18 years old and am going to college in January. I love good buys and WALGREENS is my top most favorite store!! I wish I was one of the top five, but it is good to leave a comment anyway!

I have only had two options: WalMart or Walgreens. Which to choose??? WAGS without a doubt. Faster, easier, friendlier and closer. Better deals too. I enjoy the small amount of employees and try to show them appreciation too. I made them sugar cookies a bit back and am working on a LARGE Christmas candy basket for them to enjoy!

Zenobiah said...

I love Walgreens because it impresses my husband with my mad couponing skillz! You should have seen the look on his face when I told him I bought 3 Dimetapp, 2 Arm & Hammer laundry detergent, 3 Reynolds foil and 2 Hydrogen Peroxide and made a profit of 1.59$.

I just love it when he is speechless!

JohnZ said...

While I like the occasional deals at WAGs, the local one is so dirty. I wish they could just clean up the place.

I love Wags, because there is the sweetest young cashier who always helps and greets me with a smile and good conversation. Just last night I went in, bought $66 worth before coupons, and came out spending less than $10 OOP. I am new to the game and can't wait to receive my November rebate gift card in the amount of $51.

Lea Ann said...

I love Walgreens because between the WAGS coupons, Easy Saver coupons, rebates, prescription transfer gift cards, and manufacturer's coupons, I never use actual money to buy anything there!

SheGazelle said...

No CVS here, but who cares as long as we have a Walgreens on every corner?! I LOVE Walgreens...yesterday I managed to get 2 bottles laundry detergent, 2 lip balms, Schick Titanium razor, 2 deoderants, and a dog bed for free after coupons and Register Rewards!!

Michelle said...

I use to just stop by Walgreens to pick up a prescription or if I if I forgot something at the grocery store. I now do all my shopping there. They are a one stop shop(store). You might not have all the choices a grocery store has but have enough products to chose from. Your not waiting in 30 minute lines for a few items. Usually you can get in and out of Walgreens with no lines or hassles. Plus the sales they have.....are unbelievable!

Coupon Codes said...

Thanks for the head sup. It is insane offer.

Sisters said...

Why do I love Wags? Because they are the only drugstore near me. I love the deals, being able to use 2 coupons. I mean, why not love Wags?!!!

Alli said...

Does anyone know if it's kosher to use 2 Maybeline coupons ($8 off total) with the B1G1 Free? Technically you are buying 2...
