  • Dang! Slideshow hangs up at 10:02 (on slide 'Walgreen's Basics,' right after bullet point 'You can only use one Manufacturer coupon per item' (right after David says, 'so you don't need to have four to make the deal work.'

    I'll go to the next spot it'll start playing again, but I'm bummed to have missed part of this slide! :)

  • 1. Drug Store Deal and Super Stacking
    Coupon Wizards Intermediate Webinar
  • 2. Before You Begin
    Couponing will not cause a store, nor a manufacturer to go bankrupt or unexpectedly lose money.
    Stores are paid a flat .08 handling fee in most cases plus the face value of the coupon. This is a profitable practice!
    Manufacturer’s specifically budget for coupon distribution. They “plan” on tempting you to buy their product at a reduced price.
    Don’t let anyone make you feel guilty or ashamed for using coupons.
  • 3. Walgreen’s Basics
    Register Rewards are actually Catalina Coupons.
    You can have weekly RR’s and Monthly RR’s i.e. the extra RR’s at Christmas time.
    RR’s have a 2 week shelf life.
    Walgreen’s issues a monthly coupon booklet that can be found near the weekly sales flyers at the store entrance.
  • 4. Walgreen’s Basics
    Walgreen’s store coupons are called IVC’s. IVC stands for Instant Value Coupon
    Always use IVC’s AFTER Manufacturer coupons
    You can only use one Manufacturer coupon per item.
    Filler items are a must for you to get as much as you can from your RR’s.
    For maximum savings, you need to “roll” your RR’s.
  • 5. Walgreen’s Coupon Order
    Manufacturer’s Coupon
    Walgreens Store Coupon
    Register Rewards
    If you want to avoid the “dreaded beep”, you must follow this order!
  • 6. The Anatomy of a Register Reward
    Register Rewards are a manufacturer’s coupon.
    RR’s can be used at other stores as a manufacturer’s coupon.
    If your RR doesn’t print, you can ask for the transaction to be voided and rerung.
    If your RR still doesn’t print, you can call Catalina and they will mail it to you!
  • 7. Register Rewards Exclusions

  • 33. The Rolling Cycle
  • 34. Powerful Points
    Have Enough Coupons
    Know Your Stockpile Price
    Buy as much as you can
  • 35. CVS
    Make sure you have an extra care card
    Always carry it with you!
    Limit of one per name but you can have multiples in your household.
    ECB’s actually print on your receipt, not as separate coupons
    ECB’s have a one month shelf life
  • 36. CVS
    Scan your Extra Care Card when you walk into the store
    ECB’s are tied to your card number. They will only work with that card!
    Rainchecks will include the ECB deal as long as it is written on the raincheck!
    Sign up online at and you will get a $4/$20 Store Coupon
  • 37. CVS
    You can earn Quarterly ECB’s. You get 2% on every purchase (OOP).
    $1 for every 2 prescriptions filled
    Automatically print on your receipt the 1st time you shop after the end of the quarter.
    Green Bag Tags are .99 each and pay you $1 for every 4 times it is scanned.
    Quarterly ECB’s, Green Bag Tag ECB’s and Raincheck ECB’s actually count as store coupons and will reduce your taxable amount!
    Regular ECB’s do not reduce your taxable amount.
    If you have ECB’s that are more than the total of your order, you can choose to forfeit the overage. (not sure why you would do this)
  • 38. CVS
    On a promotion where you must purchase $20 of certain products, it is before coupons!
    You do not need to buy them all in the same trip!
    Number of items vs. the number of coupons does not matter at CVS
    As always, to get the maximum value, “roll” your ECB’s into transactions that give you more ECB’s!
  • 39. CVSOrder of Coupons
    ECB Card
    Green Bag Tag

  • 40. CVSWhat can The Wizard Get for $5.00???
    2   24 Roll Jumbo Packs of Scott Extra Soft Bathroom Tissue
    2   10 Jumbo Roll Jumbo packs of Scott Towels
    12  Refill packs of Cottonelle wipes
    14  4 packs of Izze (Clementine and Blackberry Flavors)
    12  12-packs of Pepsi Products
    8   Bottles of Chewable Maalox Tablets
    14  Boxes of Finish Dishwashing Tablets
  • 41. Coupon Etiquette
    Organize your coupons before you hand them to the cashier
    Write in any prices for free items prior to presenting them to the cashier. This keeps the line moving
    Only use coupons for what you have
    Take it easy on the stores with the competitor coupons. Overuse will ruin it for everybody.
    Remain pleasant throughout your transaction. From my experience many cashiers are working out of necessity and this is their second job. You will get much further with sugar than you will with salt.
    Get to know your management. By building a relationship and opening the lines of communication with the management, you will be able to get things done.
