Change to Walgreens Coupon Policy

Sharing is caring!

Walgreens has made some changes to their coupon policy.  You can read the entire policy HERE.

The biggest change to the policy includes the below:

“When purchasing multiple items, Walgreens accepts multiple identical coupons for multiple qualifying items as long as there is sufficient stock to satisfy other customers, unless a limit is specified. Management reserves the right to limit the quantity of items purchased. Customer and employee purchases of excessive quantities of advertised items is not permitted. An excessive quantity is any quantity above and beyond normal household usage.”

What are your thoughts on this policy change?

    I have to agree with the change in the policy. There are many people who are not using them for personal use or giving away instead they are buying the items cheap and reselling them. That is the main reason that change was made to the policy I am certain.

    I like it! I hated the fact that Walgreens only stocked a small number of items and extreme couponers would go in and wipe out the shelves, not leaving any for those of us who only buy one or two!

    I like it but, it is doubtful that some of the stores around me will actually enforce it. I also stopped shopping at Walgreens because of this.

    I like it as well cause like others have said you should get enough for a household but not clean off the shelf. So if some people want to get more than there share the should have to go to several Walgreen’s just like we have to just to get a few items.

    I like it! It really makes me mad when I go to purchase 1 or 2 of something and there is none left! I only buy what I can use and I don’t stockpile items.

    It is a great move, all the Walgreens managers in my area were complaining of people emptying shelves and then selling the stuff in the store’s parking lot. IT bothered me immensely to see senior citizens not able to buy the aspirin that they need on a daily basis or other articles because the shelves were emptied by unscrupulous people. These people live on a fixed income and they wait for these sales to get what they need and to find out that half an hour after opening the store the product was not available. There were many complaints by employees who were frustrated by this situation.

    I appreciate the policy change. It infuriates me when I do my shopping after church on Sunday and when I arrive no later than 10:30 am, the shelves are empty. The selfishness is ridiculous.

    I think this is a good policy, but when is Walgreens (and every other store) going to get a clue as to what the rest of the couponing world knows–the best deals are going to be the most in demand. If nothing else, they should check out the hundreds (if no thousands) of blogs out there that tell what items will be free/cheap and ORDER ENOUGH STOCK IN in the first place! If it’s a super deal, order lots! I know some stores are on a automatic reshipment thing, but MANY of the stores CAN order stock in. And for the stores who don’t, maybe they need to rethink how they are doing things since there’s SO many couponers now. With the economy as bad as it is, there are more people couponing than ever.

    When Walgreens was out, just take the ad to Walmart, they price match, problem solved even tho I hate Walmart, did that with their Kids Aquafresh, Walgreens had it on sale for $.88, 5 Walgreens, completely out, just took to Walmart and bought 15, have 4 kids and I’m still using it and I bought over a year ago, That was my best haul, lol

    IF they make it stick, I like it. I haven’t shopped at Walgreens in a very long time because all the shelves are empty of the good deals. It’s not worth the time, energy, or gas to go in just to find that every single thing I want to buy is sold out. I have my doubts that the rule will actually be enforced, but IF it is I might return as a shopper.

    I have to say I don’t like these crazy coupon ladies. I mean these people who buy things and resell or donate them. It happened so many times to me when I try to buy something to use personally, but someone else cleared up the whole shelf before me. That’s the whole reason many stores changed their coupon policies and make it harder for people to use coupons. Companies are not the one cause the coupon chaos, these people are the reason.To do anything that is extreme which is not the way to do any good to others.

    I like the concept – it’s so annoying to see people buy way more than they could possibly use – but I feel like it may be hard to enforce. It sounds like they won’t have specified limits on everything, so will employees need to judge what is excessive? I feel like that could cause conflicst since some people can get pretty intense, especially if they’re already being greedy :/ If it works out and is enforced, I think this sounds great, though.

    i stopped shopping Walgreens years ago because they never had stock on advertised items….. so with this new policy in place i will try walgreens ago a few times to see if it helps…. i agree with some people here the policy is still a bit vague… also… to comment on a post someone left here… why would anybody be upset that some people buy in bulk items to donate?.. They are many people in many areas that could use donations… we have to help each other,
