Wags What is a "filler?"

Walgreens coupon policy requires you to have one item per manufacturer coupon.

This is where the term “filler” comes in


Say you have a $5 item and you have a $4 Register reward and a $1 coupon. Means the item would be free. However because of their coupon policy you need
an item to meet the # of coupons to # of items ratio specified in the coupon policy. Walgreens coupons (Instore Value Coupon AKA IVC) do NOT count towards the coupon to item ratio it is only the manufacture coupons that you must have atleast 1 item per coupon & Register Reward to comply with the coupon rule outlined in the coupon policy. In this instance you would need to to purchase the item on your regular manufacture coupon + another item to act as the "Filler" for you to use the Register Reward. However, in order for the item to act as a filler it must not have another manufacture coupon accompany it, if it has an IVC from the weekly flier you may use that but you may not use another manufacture coupon (As this would make the coupon count 3 in this example and only 2 items) you will still need to purchase a "Filler item" that you do NOT have a manufacture coupon for.


Normally good filler items are $.50 or less (the cheaper the better) can range from pencils, to candles, knee highs, to candy. Most of the stores have by the “main register” bins of candy that are $.10 that will work in a pinch

So I haven't done walgreens yet because their coupon policy is so not as easy as RAs, but if the RR ad is say get $3 in RRs, is this going to print as one coupon for $3, thus making it "1 coupon item" or do they print separately making it "3 coupon items"

I guess I'm asking if the RRs being used has more to do with the value, or the actual times a coupon is being scanned. And also asking how the RR coupons are printed (ex: $3 as one coupon, or 3 coupons)

It will be one coupon for $3.00. I love to go in Walgreen they do have great deals. It took me several trips to figure out the fillers but it's quiet simple now.

Walgreens doesn't let you use a RR you have to purchase the same item again. So if you got a $6 RR on rice, you can't use that $6 RR to purchase that same rice again and get another $6 RR. I think it does let you use the RR on the same item but it won't give you another RR back for it.

At least that is my unnderstanding of WG's right now.

JustLearning's got it!
The great majority of RRs will not roll into themselves. To get the new RR you can't spend one of the same.

I learned the reusing rr's the hard way. You can use register rewards on other products that will give you register rewards back, as long as you dont use the exact register reward you got from purchasing that item initially. Example: you buy colgate toothpaste for $2.99 and get th $2.99 rr, make sure you dont use the rr just printed to buy another toothpaste. Swap them out with rr you got from another product. If you have a rr from motrin you can use that for the toothpaste and it will print out your $3 rr. Another thing to watch out for on buy bogo items, learned this the hard way, make sure the they dont drop the price of the items to hinder your savings. example: one walgreens had the old spice body wash and deodorant for $4.99 plus the bogo %50 off, now apply your buy deodorant get body wash free coupon, which then applies the %50 off to the deodorant making it $2.50, since the bogo coupon applied to the body wash and you are technically getting 2 items, you can apply your $1 off 2 old spice products to the deodorant making it $1.50. Went to another location, they dropped the price of the body wash to $4.49 so on the bogo they can use the lower price, so now you are getting %5r0 off $4.50 instead of $4.99

I usually cruise the internet and find all the good walgreen deals like last shopping trip I found on the net a deal on 2 dollar/1 printable coupon on Splenda w/fiber. it said I could get it for .99c. (you can back space and get it again to print out). Then I took the two coupons into Walgreens. Grabed the Baby shampoo and toothpaste deal were you got your money back on RRs.

Did two separate purchases first one was for the two RR's then turned around and used the second purchase to grab the splenda, paper plates (walgreen q's), chicken broth (Walgreens Q's). With the two RR's I didn't get things for free but I'm happy with the savings. I did the same thing doing two separate purchases at the CVS store which is not to far from my house also.

I was so happy with the savings I donated $1.00 to MDA

Brigadoon4 is on a distinguished road
Default Need some help with RR

Here is the example:

Transaction #1
Buy:
(2) Clean & Clear Body Wash 16 oz, B1G1 at $5.99
(1) Carefree Liners 99
(2) Reach Toothbrush 2 pk, $3
Use:
-B1G1 Clean & Clear body wash, max $5.99, SS 3/27 or PRINTABLE
-$1 off Carefree pantyliners, SS 5/08
(2) -$2 off Reach toothbrush, multipk, SS 5/08
Total Due: $2
Get Back: $2 RR

Now if I use my $2 RR and add say a $.50 pack of gum will the total now be $.50? I have $40 in RR and would like to use them to make the purchases this next week.
