Walgreens – FREE got2b products with $3/1 got2b coupon coming Sunday

Stopped into Walgreens this morning and spotted got2b products on sale for buy one, one get one FREE! This means they’ll be FREE with the $3/1 got2b coupon scheduled to arrive in our Sunday paper February 12! The coupon is only valid on full-size got2b products. The buy one, get one sale runs until February 25 so you should have plenty of time to use your coupon – and if the shelves are empty when you arrive, ask for a raincheck.

Here’s how:

Got2be products – $5.99, buy one, get one FREE
Use two (2) $3/1 Got2b, full size  02/12/2012 RP Insert (exp 05/12/2012)
Final price = FREE

I also spotted Clairol Natural Instincts hair color on clearance for $4.59. Use the $5/2 Clairol Natural Instincts 01/29/2012 P&G Insert (exp 02/29/2012) and you’ll pay only $2 each!

Clairol Natural Instincts hair color – $4.59 (clearance)
$5/2 Clairol Natural Instincts 01/29/2012 P&G Insert (exp 02/29/2012)
Final price = FREE when you buy two

And I found Banana Boat sunscreen on clearance for $3.19 – down from $11.99! I know we don’t have any sun right now, but I’d be picking some up in preparation for summer if you are out.

Remember clearance items vary by store – so you aren’t guaranteed to find the same clearance that I did. See other Walgreens deals here (that start Sunday).

  1. The cashier told me I could not use the second coupon on my free item… I end up buying four got2be products for 6 bucks… That is still a good deal considering sale price for one item is 5.99.

  2. Today I went to Walgreen’s with a copy of their policy in hand. Their bogo policy states: When items are featured in a Buy One, Get One Free promotion, up to two coupons can be used against the items being purchased, as long as the net price does not go below zero for the items being purchased.
    Sales tax must be paid for any Buy One, Get One Free coupon offers, if required by applicable state laws.

    Since the bogo is for $5.99 and total of 2/$3 coupons is $6.00 they will have to reduce one of the coupons so that the coupons do not exceed the sale price. Walgreens policy also states: The coupon amount must be reduced if it exceeds the value of the item after other discounts or coupons are applied. (For example, a $5.00 coupon for a $4.99 item will result in a $4.99 coupon value).
    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.

  3. I went to my walgreen’s in Virginia an the girl behind the counter said they r not allowing them to use the second coupon because it is free. But only because she knew me she did it. However she had to ring the second coupon up for $2.98. I paid $.60 for 4 of them.

    • This worked for me at my local Walgreens (I live in Central VA). In fact, at the time I went there were actually a bunch of other people in the store doing that same thing (ten people lined up with nothing but two got 2b products in hand, lol). I told my mother about this deal and when she tried it, her cashier (she lives in Northern MD) told her the same thing that yours told you. She called me about it and I thought that it didn’t sound right, since it went through for me and so many others without the need for an override or anything, so I called the customer service number on the website to investigate.

      They confirmed for me that they should accept the two $3.00 coupons because the Got 2b products are advertised as 2/$5.99 online (that that is how it works in the register, and that even though in some places it says they are BOGO, if it is even advertised differently in one place they must honor it). I asked if there is any reason why it should not be honored at a particular store, and she said that it should work at all locations, and any store manager would confirm this. The only thing, she said, was that because the coupons are technically $6 and the products total $5.99, you either need a filler item to take care of the overage, or for a manager to reduce the value of the second coupon to $2.99. I told my mother this and she went back the next day, found a manager, explained the situation and asked, finally, if she could use the coupons. He told her “of course,” and expressed surprise that a cashier had not allowed her to do so previously, and that he apologized for any inconvenience that it may have caused her.

      She purchased a volumizing mousse and a smoothing lotion, along with a packet of valentine’s stickers on clearance for 15 cents or something, and everything went through just fine without the need for an override.

  4. Walgreens in southern Idaho would not take 2 coupons. price would be below 0.clerk said that would be free if she did that, told her that was the point. refused to take it.

  5. I bought 4 got2B with 4 three dollar coupons and the computer wouldn’t take the fourth coupon so I paid $2.98 for four. Anyone know what I did wrong? Thanks!

    • You need a filler item. Walgreens’ coupon policy doesn’t allow overages, and the product total in your transaction would have been $11.98, with a coupon total of $12, so scanning the last coupon would have resulted in an overage of $0.02. If you had another item priced at 2 cents or more, it would have worked just fine (we usually use these caramels that cost a quarter, or more recently there have been cheap valentine items like stickers and mini gift bags that cost around 20 cents or less)… I am surprised that your cashier didn’t explain this to you, but if you still have the last coupon you should be allowed to take it back to the store along with your receipt and have it applied after the fact (so long as you also purchase something that costs 2 cents or more).

  6. I live in the Tri-Cities, WA and we didn’t get the $3/1 Got2B coupon 🙁

  7. Am I missing something?This sale isnt showing up on my ad…

  8. Yes! Here is the link to Walgreen’s coupon policy:


    Hope this helps!

    • i tried this morning and my cashier said he couldnt scan the second coupon because the machine rand up the second item for 0.00??

      • Didn’t work for me either because the price would be 5.99 and the coupons used would take off $6.00 so 2nd coupon would cause overage. Decent deal still if you need hair products.

        • It isn’t too late to go back to the store with the receipt and have your second coupon applied. You can either have the manager reduce the value to $2.99 instead of $3 or, if you like, purchase a cheap filler item to cover the overage… Walgreens is one of chains that will accept coupons that were accidentally forgotten, not correctly scanned, etc. after the fact if you provide a receipt, especially considering the cashier should have either called the manager to reduce the coupon value (standard policy) or informed you that you could still use the coupon if you purchased another item that covered at least the cost of the overage.

      • the reason I think you couldn’t use it is because the item total was 5.99 and the two coupons totaled 6.00

      • That isn’t the reason. It is because, for every two hair products you buy (and every two coupons you use), you are creating a 1 cent overage. If these are the only products you are buying, you can have a manager override put in to reduce the value of the second coupon to $2.99, or you could purchase a cheap filler item to cover the value of the overage and it will go through just fine.

  9. On the Got2be bogo, do they let you use a coupon against the free one?

    • Yep, the only issue is that it will cause a one cent overage for every two products. You can avoid this buy purchasing another item that covers at least the cost of the overage, OR a store manager can put in an override to reduce the cost of the second coupon to $2.99.
