    Walgreens IVC Booklet Question?

    Last night at our Advanced Coupon training workshop, a question came up about the coupons inside the Walgreens IVC (Instant Value Coupon) monthly booklet.

    The question was regarding the wording on the coupons in the booklet, they state that they are “Manufacturer Coupons good at Walgreens Only” and the question was regarding using a Manufacturer coupon along with the store coupon in that book and I WAS CAUGHT OFF GUARD FOR THE ANSWER!!! I have used them numerous times and never encountered a problem with the verbiage!

    So Melisha and I researched and we found that they are in fact, STORE COUPONS and can be used in conjunction with a Mfr Q, just as we have been used to! Basically, the Manufacturer is helping to pay Walgreens to advertize their products in their monthly booklet, but they are not reimbursed like the traditional coupon a Manufacturer releases. Bottom line: they are treated like a Store Coupon that can be stacked with a Mfr Coupon.

    Good Question right?!!! To view the Walgreens Official Coupon Policy go HERE.  To register to attend a TrueCouponing Workshop go HERE.

    Happy Couponing! (And Thanks to Linda R. for helping us think through this!)

      I was at one Walgreens and saw someone try to use a coupon out of the book and a manufacturer coupon from Sunday’s paper and the manager told the person they could not do it.  Is it a store thing that one will allow and another will not?

      Thanks Sullidish :-)
      Erline…no, a lot of times there are Manufacturer Coupons that say “Good only at ____”  but they are REIMBURSED by the Manufacturer so they can be used at any store (NOT as a store coupon, but as a Manufacturer Coupon). You can read the coupon and see if it says to mail-it-in for reimbursement…that means it is a true Mfr Q and the store is NOT keeping it as a promotion, they are mailing it into the Mfr for reimbursement. It is also a good rule of thumb to look at the coupon barcode, if it starts with a teeny tiny “5” or “9” it is most likely a Mfr Q. These IVC coupons all start with a “0”.
      Hope that helps clarify!

      That makes sense. So, I would assume that it is the same with other coupons. For example, I have printed coupons from publix that says Manufacturer coupon to be used at Publix only. However, since it has a barcode, Publix refuses to accept them as a store coupon. I also print some that say For use at Walmart only…so they would be considered a “store” coupon and not a “manufacturer”?

      You mean “manufacturer”
