  1. How did you use a coupon on a free item (Osteo-Bi-Flex) the Walgreens in Victoria wouldn't let me, they said since it was free I couldn't use it.

  2. This is why it is important to print out the store's coupon policy & have it with you in your binder or where ever you organize the coupons you will be taking with you to the store. You definately CAN use 2 coupons in a BOGO free situation, it says so right in their own coupon policy! (You can read that policy by going to the top of this page, clicking on the "Store Coupon Policies" tab & it will take you to the links of stores in our area, click on Walgreens to see the complete policy.) I copied this directly from the policy:

    "When items are featured in a Buy One, Get One Free promotion, up to two coupons can be used against the items being purchased, as long as the net price does not go below zero for the items being purchased."

    It's aggravating when employees don't know the rules & regulations in their own stores, but what's even worse is when the management doesn't know them either! Make sure you print this out & keep it with you to show to who ever it is that tells you you can't do this!

    I'm so glad you asked this question, because many people will take the cashiers' word for it that you cannot do this!

  3. Go to Walgreens on Sam Houston and Navarro (in front of Hastings) or the one in front of Kohl's. The managers at both stores are great.

    Where did you get the $2/1 Tylenol Liquid Q? I can't find it in mine..
