I had a truly terrible experience at Walgreens about a month ago when a cashier would not accept my coupons. I asked to speak to a manager who ended up yelling at me (yes, yelling) saying that I was stealing and would get the person fired who normally accepts my coupons.
I contacted Walgreens customer service via email and they said that they do not have a corporate coupon policy, but a list of guidelines they like to follow. A few days later I received a call from a manager of the Walgreens nearest to where I live (but not the store I was having problems with). Here are a few of my questions:
Q. Is there a limit to the number of printable coupons you accept?
A. You could use 200 printables if you wanted to, but only if they had enough of that item in stock for everyone who may want to purchase it that week.
Q. Can you use an in-ad coupon or Easy Saver coupon with a regular manufacturer’s coupon?
Q. Can you use a BOGO coupon in combination with a BOGO sale?
A. It is against their coupon policy (wait, thought you didn’t have a coupon policy) to do this, but normally his store will allow this unless they feel like you are stealing.
At this point I had to end the conversation since my head was about to explode.
I wasn’t sure if I wanted to discuss this on this here or not until I read today that now people are having problems combining easy saver coupons with manufacturer coupons. I still haven’t gone back to Walgreens, and until I can be sure that me and my coupons will not be turned away I don’t think I will be back. Have any of you had any problems or is it just me with the dark cloud following above?
