Here it is... and I am going to TRY and explain it the best I can! Walgreens is SUPER tricky... even though I've been "wagging" for awhile, I still get my transactions messed up!!!
First off, in order to do this deal you HAVE TO HAVE HUGGIES MANUFACTURER coupons!!! So those of you who have been good couponers and have been clipping away, it will be easier for you & you'll be able to do the deal more. If you haven't clipped coupons or signed up at huggies.com (that's where the BEST coupons come from!) search the internet for some printable coupons. Wait... did you REALLY think I'd make you SCOUR the internet? No... here's the link :) PRINT 'EM HERE!
Secondly... you need a crash course in couponing at Walgreens. At Wags, they will allow you to combine a WALGREENS IVC (instant value coupon- found at the front of the store, or in this case...mine was from a Walgreens kids coloring book (more on where to find this book later). You also earn Register Rewards- this is how you can get things at Wags for so cheap. HOWEVER- lets say you want to use 1 Register Reward, 1 Manu coupon and 1 Wags coupon on one pack of diapers, you need to have 2 "filler" items- (I used 35 cent caramels today). Get it? The amount of coupons have to match up with the amount of items.
Third... once you have your manu coupons all in order, try your hardest to find a Walgreens Kid activity book (they're sometimes located by the pharmacy). The book itself costs 1.99 I believe, but there are so many valuable coupons in it. AND the best part, you can reuse those coupons again and again! SO make sure to ask for your IVC back!!! After you have the Wags IVC Huggies coupon, you're set to go.
Here's how I did the deal... step by step:
Step one: Pick up a pack of Huggies :) and a CHEAP item (such as the 35 cent caramels!)
Step two: Go to the COSMETICS counter to pay (especially if you're in the Jax. area- they are much nicer about coupons at the cos. counter!)
Step three: Hand the cashier the huggies & 1 caramel and then your two coupons: the manu. q & the Wags IVC. Diapers are on sale this week for 8.99. With whatever manu q you have (I had 2.00 ones) and the Wags IVC, this will bring your total to 5.99 per pack- BUT WAIT! After you pay, you will receive a $3.00 Register Reward! Soooooo.... turn around and do the diaper deal again. and again. and again. (or if you have a ton of coupons like I did... 6 times!)
Step four: Hand the cashier the huggies & TWO caramels... then your coupons: the manu q. the Wags IVC, and the Register Reward. THIS time your total should come out to be $2.99. Or around there.
I decided to go a different route however, because Ryan needed some shower gel. This is what I did:
Trans #1: 1 Dove shower gel -5.99
I got back $6.00 in register rewards (that's right- its like the shower gel was FREE!)
Trans#2: 1 pack of Huggies-8.99 & 2 caramels.
I used the $6.00 RR, $2.00 Manu q, and $1.00 Wags IVC bringing my diaper total down to 86 cents. Yes folks, I paid 86 cents for a pack of diapers :) I ALSO got back the $3.00 RR.
Trans #3: 1 Dove shower gel- 5.99
I used the $3.00 RR from transaction #2 and paid $3.18. BUT got back a $6.00 RR which I then turned around and used on another pack of diapers, again paying 86 cents.
OMG that is the most confusing thing I've ever read. But I really can't figure out how to explain it any easier!! AHHH! Shelby? Any ideas??? :)
