Walgreens logo

Customer Service: 1-800-WALGREENS (1-800-925-4733) or email here!

  • Does Walgreens have a current coupon policy?

YES! Read or print the Walgreens Coupon Policy here!

  • What is a Register Reward (RR)?

Register Reward (RR) are special receipt coupons earned by a customer for purchasing a certain item during that promotional period. You’ll notice a Register Reward sale on many items in the Walgreens weekly circular. Register Rewards are used like cash to purchase nearly anything at Walgreens. Register Rewards can be used at ANY TIME, even right after receiving it and stacked with all coupons.

  • Can I use a Register Reward (RR) on a Register Reward deal to earn more Register Rewards?

YES, but you cannot use a RR on the same RR deal. You MUST use your RR on a different RR deal in order to earn more Register Rewards. Certain limits apply.

  • Does Walgreens accept internet printable coupons?


  • Does Walgreens accept FREE product coupons or Buy 1 Get 1 FREE Coupons?


  • Does Walgreens allow you to stack their stores coupons with manufacturer coupon for the same one item?

YES. You may use ONE Manufacturer coupon, ONE Manufacturer Store coupon (found in their weekly ad) & ONE Instant Value coupon (found in their monthly coupon booklets).

  • Does Walgreens offer rain checks on out-of-stock items?

YES. And these rain checks do NOT expire. Though, NO rain checks are allowed on Register Regard (RR) sale items.

Maybe silly question, but when you have an in-ad coupon and it says “Limit 6” does that mean you need 6 of the coupons to reach that limit? Or does the coupon apply up to that limit. I assume the first.


2 Crystal December 12, 2011 at 1:11 PM

Yes the single coupon applies towards the max limit allowed by the coupon =]

I always have problems with walgreens.I had a coupon for $4.00 for air freshener it was on sale for $3.99 the manager refused it because of one penny.Now I have the coupon policy and will make sure I have it with me.Now at least I know the coupon policy and will teach it to them.Thank You Sincerely,Laurel


4 Marielys Pinto July 17, 2016 at 9:01 AM

LAUREL, what part, in the policy they can accept the 4.00 coupon for 3.99 product. I always have trouble for that. I read all the policy and I dont founded or maybe I not understood.
Thank you.


5 Laurel July 17, 2016 at 3:35 PM

This is a *really* old post from years ago. I have since quit shopping at Walgreens altogether. I have no idea what their new coupon policy is. Good luck!


6 Letha May 12, 2017 at 1:24 AM

It will only take off 3.99 not understanding why they won’t allow you to use it. I use coupons like that all the time.


7 Melissa October 5, 2011 at 5:53 PM

I find Register rewards work like coupons. Make sure you have one item for each coupon, including the Register Rewards. They will reject the last coupon you give them if you have, for example, 1 items with a manufactures coupon and a RR. You can grab something that costs 10 cents and have the 2 items required for them to accept the manufacture’s coupon and the RR. Tricky.


8 Ashley October 31, 2011 at 1:30 AM

This may be picky of me, but for the answer in the question “Does Walgreens accept coupons with a greater value than the price of the item?” You say “Rite Aid” instead of Walgreens. Just making sure it is indeed Walgreens that does this


9 Dixie November 27, 2011 at 12:06 PM

Walgreens in Roy refused to issue a raincheck on the Arm and Hammer Sale because it was a three day sale (had not ended yet). Just an FYI…and disappointing!


10 paula September 11, 2012 at 6:41 AM

Both Walgreens stores near me have refused to stack manufacturer’s coupons with their instant value coupons. One manager told me that the coupons in the booklet were vendor funded and were therefore manufacturer’s coupons. Very frustrating. I won’t be shopping there any longer.


11 Name November 6, 2013 at 9:42 PM

The IVC coupons are vendor-funded, but sometimes they will scan. Ask the clerk at checkout to try it.


12 Lena September 18, 2012 at 11:27 PM

It is not clear to me (and I would be VERY thankful if you know the answer) if I can buy multiple “sale” to get my balance rewards. For ecxample: this week add says that the IGUM if for sale and for each two I will get 1000 balance point. It is similar to the register rewards, where only one RR is allowed per item? Or I can buy 6 gums and get 3000 balance points?
Your clarification is greatly appreciated.


13 Michael November 6, 2013 at 9:40 PM

You have to make separate transactions (3).


14 Melissa December 7, 2014 at 8:35 PM

I didn’t need to during the Pantene promotion. 3000 points for buying three, I about six and got 6000 points. Same thing with Tresseme. I walked out with 10,000 points in one trip. After coupons and points, I ended up paying .89 cents each.


15 Rafael October 17, 2012 at 5:26 PM

Hey i will like to knownif walgreens acepts tird party coupons thanks and god bless


16 Michael November 6, 2013 at 9:51 PM

Yes, as long as they scan correctly and are for an item Walgreens carries.


17 Jani October 21, 2012 at 12:25 PM

Lately my local Walgreens has not allowed me to use a manufactures coupon and earn register rewards. I can’t find anything here that supports or denies this policy. Can someone clear this up for me?? Can I use a manufactures coupon and earn register rewards? Thanks!!


18 Michael November 6, 2013 at 9:44 PM

You can earn RR on any product that offers it, regardless of the coupon(s) you use, as long as you meet the requirements of the RR. In other words, if you get a $5 RR after paying $20 for J&J products, and you use all sorts of coupons that drag the price below $20, you won’t get the RR.


19 Name April 14, 2017 at 10:49 PM

I know these are old and maybe policy changed but you sure can use coupons to bring your out of pocket below 20 and still get the are considered a form of payment same as cash.. and when you earn points you can do it in all one transaction.. like buy 2 dove get 2000 points buying 6 dove will give you 6000 points


20 Josephine October 30, 2012 at 8:48 PM

I want to know my coupon says good at walgreens with coupon and card, i lost my card so is it stiil applicable? Can i go to walgreens and still give them my coupon


21 Name November 6, 2013 at 9:45 PM

Sure – type in your phone number at the pinpad and that will look up your balance reward.


22 Mary Marks November 24, 2012 at 7:21 PM

I work in a military commissary and have a customers family using Walgreens coupons to purchase their groceries. If you would put on your in store coupons redeemable only at Walgreens, you would not lose your in store coupon savings at our store. These people use only your coupons on their groceries to keep from paying for their food because they say manfacture coupon from P&G.


23 Michael November 6, 2013 at 9:52 PM

Good point, yet it doesn’t matter where the coupon is from (objectively), it only matters what it is for.


24 Linda Horst December 12, 2012 at 6:33 PM

Can I use a coupon for $10.00 that lapsed while I had emergancy surgery. I did not purposely not use it as it was only good for two days. Or issue a new one to my card? I could really use the $10.00! Thankyou, Linda Horst


25 sara rodriguez February 8, 2013 at 8:45 PM

Why did the cashier not accept my 2 coupons on 2 items of the same kind.One was buy one get one free and the other one was get 3 dollars off for the same item and she said I could only use one.


26 Michael November 6, 2013 at 9:47 PM

Either she was unknowing of the policy, or the price with the coupons went below 0. In the second case, Walgreens adjusts the price of the coupon to make it work as long as it is not zero or below zero. In the first case it is simply a training issue.


27 none November 25, 2015 at 12:02 PM

Because if you had two items of the product and the first coupon gave you the second item free that coupon covers both items. The three dollar off one would have required you to have three of the items in your basket not two. A buy one get one free coupon is no different than say a coupon for 1.00 off two in which if you used the save 1.00 on two you couldn’t go ahead and use a second coupon for say .50 off one on the first two items the dollar coupon already applied too. The cashier was not untrained or unaware at all.


28 Name March 23, 2013 at 8:27 PM

Can i use several RR in 1 transaction


29 Michael November 6, 2013 at 9:48 PM

As long as they scan and you don’t have more coupons than products, yes. Do not ask the cashier to ‘type in the number’ as that will not work (most Wags won’t do that anyway).


30 Tracy January 16, 2014 at 10:16 PM

Does Walgreens honor balance reward points on a rain check


31 Jeffrey Berry January 25, 2014 at 9:28 PM

My wife and I love Wal Greens we shop there all the time we love when you put the Arizona teas on sale. Everyone no the Kyle store here in Texas are very nice and helpful. Thank you for all you do. Jeffrey & Paulette Berry


32 Hannah Toler June 25, 2014 at 12:47 PM

When there is a limit on the coupons in the ads like hunts tomatoes sauce 3/$1 limit 6 how many can i get


33 Sam May 26, 2015 at 12:00 PM

I have a question about balance reward points. I know you can’t use a RR to earn BRP but can you spend BRP and gain BRP?


34 none November 25, 2015 at 12:06 PM

No. Balance rewards can not be earned and redeemed in the same transaction.


35 Shannen R Perez April 14, 2017 at 10:54 PM

You can use RR to receive points


36 Debra October 22, 2015 at 10:43 PM

rain check DO expire it says so on the new rain checks folks


37 none November 25, 2015 at 12:05 PM

You are indeed correct. I believe it’s somewhere between 60 and 90 days.


38 Judy December 15, 2015 at 12:53 PM

HELP, l have $17.00 in store coupons that just expires Friday 12/11/2015. ls there any way that you can reissue these or maybe put them on my point balance. l had misplaced them and just found them. Thank you for any help you can give me.


39 Ro December 15, 2015 at 3:04 PM

Hi Judy! No that is not possible. Once they expire you cannot use them anymore.. it’s happen to me before too! Hope this helps! 🙂


40 Kaila January 15, 2016 at 2:07 PM

Okay, I am not sure if this happens often to other people and I have glanced at the coupon policy but didn’t get a chance to talk to a store manager yet. But I’ll see if anyone else has this problem. So, I enjoy shopping at Walgreens but lately they haven’t been taking all my coupons. For instance, this week their Listerene was on sale so I bought 2. When I was at check out the cashier said I could only use one coupon and the other refused to scan.
Factors I ruled out: (1) It wasn’t a BOGO item, so that shouldn’t have been the reason (2) I didn’t exceed the coupon value of more than 4 of the like coupons (3) I didn’t exceed coin value (Sale price was 4.49 and Q was 1.00 off) (4) I didn’t clear out the stock (it was only 2 bottles) (5) I had more items than coupons

Can you help clarify this in any way? If not, I’ll be glad to ask a manager next shopping trip


41 Gina June 15, 2016 at 6:13 PM

I have been having the exact same issue!!


42 Kaila June 15, 2016 at 6:22 PM

From what I have been told, if the computer doesn’t recognize the coupon they won’t accept the coupon. It’s weird because nothing was wrong with the coupon, they were exactly the same! And supposedly it is against policy to manually input the value of the coupon into the system. This is officially one of the stores that I dont’ shop at anymore. At least CVS will manually put in the value of the coupon if it doesn’t scan correctly and doesn’t look copied or destroyed.


43 Felicia Harris February 12, 2016 at 2:05 PM

The same thing just happen to me last night, I went to by Arm & Hammer detergent on sale for $1.99 coupon is $1.00 off, I tried to buy 6 and it would only took 3 of my coupons, so I went to another Walgreens and tried to buy just 3 and it would only take 2 of the coupons I called the corporate office but they did not know why is was not taking all of the coupons


44 Heather February 18, 2016 at 3:25 PM

Felicia, Kaila – having the EXACT same issue for about 2 months now. I called corporate, waiting for a return call. I will post with further information as I get it.


45 Jennifer June 24, 2017 at 10:14 PM

Got a rc for laundry soap almost 3 wks ago and the store never has in Stock. Today I came across for bottles but was told since the coupons are now expired even though valid at time rc was written and would not be accepted. Can someone clarify?


46 Amy July 28, 2017 at 6:02 PM

They are only giving a raincheck for their sale price. They cannot rain check the use of a MF coupon, store coupon or RR deals. I hope that helps!
