Walgreens Register Rewards (RR)

When you coupon at Walgreens you will have deals that generate Register Rewards (RR). Register Rewards are simply rebates or coupons for buying items specified in the Register Reward offer. The RR coupon will print out from the coupon machine next to the register after you pay for the products that are included in Register Rewards deals.

Here is a picture or a Register Rewards coupon:

You can use the Register Rewards coupon on your next transaction or on a later shopping trip.

You can’t use the Register Rewards coupon in the transaction you get it in! It prints after you pay!

Register Rewards coupons EXPIRE!

From the moment the Register Rewards coupon prints, you have 15 days before it expires. If you don’t use your RR within this time frame you will lose it!

Look to use the RR to lower the out of pocket cost of another deal or use it to purchase just about anything at the store.

You can only get ONE Register Rewards coupon per transaction for the same offer.

Meaning, for example:

You buy 2 Shampoos and get a $2.00 RR for this deal. If you buy 4 Shampoos instead hoping you will get two times $2.00 RRs in the same Transaction – it won’t happen!


However you can buy 2 more Shampoos on a SEPARATE Transaction and get another $2.00 RR.

BUT, Do not use the RR you received for the same item to pay for the second deal – if you do – a new RR will NOT print!

What to do if  your Register Rewards coupon doesn’t print?

If your Register Reward does not print, ask to speak to the manager. If all were correct in your deal but the RR didn’t print they maybe able to print one for your or when not possible they may offer your Balance Rewards points to your account instead. If they can’t help call the Walgreens customer service to help them fix it for you.

What items will print a Register Rewards coupon?

Take a look at the weekly ads, Register Rewards are listed in each week’s ad.

You Cannot Get a Raincheck on Register Rewards Items. If an item produces a Register Reward, Walgreens will not issue a raincheck for that item per company policy. This means that if the item is out of stock, it’s because others took advantage of the deal before you did. Try another Walgreens or arrive earlier for the next great deal.

You May Be Restricted by Coupon Count Limits. Because RRs are considered “manufacturer coupons,” you can run into a situation in which you have fewer items than you have coupons. When this happens, the register will reject them. For example, if you want to buy one $4.00 item and have two $2.00 RRs, the register will not accept both rewards because you only have one item and two coupons. In these cases, you will want to buy a cheap filler item to increase the number of items you are buying. At the register there are plenty of impulse items that will do the job, such as a $0.39 pencil or a $0.19 caramel. If you have to spend a few extra cents so that the register will accept a second $2.00 reward coupon, so be it.
