Reader Q&A :: Can You Use RR/ECB on Milk?


Time for another reader question!

Holli asked: "Can you use RR/ECB on milk?"

Great question!  Let's start with RR.  At Walgreens when you receive a Register Reward you may use it to purchase anything in the store (according to the coupon policy) except:


  • Prescriptions

  • Tobacco products

  • Alcoholic beverages

  • Dairy products

  • Lottery tickets

  • Money orders/transfers

  • Transportation passes

  • Special event/entertainment tickets or passes

  • Postage stamps

  • Gift cards/phone cards/prepaid/Green DotTM cards

  • Prescription Savings Club" memberships

  • Health care services, including immunizations

  • Any items prohibited by law


  • So the answer at Walgreens is no.  You cannot use RR to buy milk (or any of the other above listed items).  Also, you cannot use RR to purchase an item from the same brand family from which you received the RR.  For example, if you purchased some Crest toothpaste and your RR says compiments of Crest, you will not be able to use that on another Crest item.  If you do, your other RR will not print.

    Now onto CVS.  Can we use ECB's to buy milk?

    According to the CVS coupon policy, there are a few exclusions on what you may purchase with an ECB, here they are:

    * Excludes alcohol, tobacco, lottery, gift cards, money orders, postage stamps, pre-paid cards, prescriptions, and special order Home Health Care items, including footwear.

    Since dairy products are not listed in that list, that means we should be able to purchase milk with ECB!  I do want to say that I do not shop at CVS because I don't have one nearby so I cannot speak from experience.  Rather, I am just going off of their policy.  According to it, it appears that we can purchase milk with our ECB's.

    Quick summary.  Walgreens does not allow RR to be used on milk.  CVS does allow ECB's to be used on milk!

    Great question, Holli!

    Thanks!

    Reader Q&A :: Does Walmart Honor Competitor's Coupons?



    Earlier this week I posted on facebook that I was wanting to answer a few reader questions.  I received a couple and am hoping to answer them the best I can!

    Sylvia asked: "Does Walmart honor competitor's coupons?"

    The answer is yes.  However, there are a few stipulations.  According to their coupon policy, they will accept the competitor coupons, but here are the facts:

    Competitors' coupons
     
    • A specific item for a specified price, for example, $2.99
    • Buy one, get one free (BOGO) coupons for items with a specified price
    • Have a valid expiration date
    • Are acceptable in black and white
    Basically what that means is they will honor the coupons, but they MUST have a specified price.  So, let's look at a couple examples. Walgreens in-ad coupons that specify, for example, Scotch tape for $.99.  This type of coupon will be accepted because it specifies the price.  However, a Target coupon that says $1.00/1 Dove Shampoo will NOT (or should not according to policy) be accepted because it does not specify a price.  This also goes for the BOGO coupons.  As long as the price of the item is specified on the coupon it should be accepted.  If it simply says $1 off or $.50 off, it should not be accepted.

    Now, I want to clarify that I rarely shop at Walmart anymore since I usually go to stores that double coupons.  However, when I have been I have noticed that it seems the acceptance of coupons varies from store to manager to cashier.  There are so many employees that may not be as familiar with the policy as we are, so sometimes certain coupons may have been accepted when they shouldn't have been or not been accepted when they should have been.

    I recommend printing the coupon policy and taking it with you so that you will know and be able to show your cashier if needed.  And as always, please, please use your coupons ethically.  If you know that a competitor coupon should not be accepted at Walmart please don't try to use it anyway.  That's considered coupon fraud, and we for sure don't want to be dishonest or lose our coupon priveleges all together!

    Hope that clarifies the Walmart coupon issue!  Great question, Sylvia!  Thanks!

    Happy 3rd Birthday!


    Today is my sweet "big" girl's 3rd birthday!  You may not see many posts from me today because we are planning to celebrate together as a family!  I can't believe she's already three years old, but we are so blessed to have her in our lives!  She's so sweet and funny, and says the cutest things.  (I know I'm biased, all of us moms think the same things about our children, but I just thought I'd let you know how I feel today!)





    Thank you Lord for blessing our family with such a beautiful baby girl!!  Happy Birthday, Haylie!
