    I was at my local Walgreens about 11 am yesterday and they were already out of the Morton Epsom Salts, Nexcare blister waterproof bandaids, Dr Pepper 10, and Crest toothpaste. I picked up the last bottle of crest mouth rinse, and the last Pro-Health toothbrush. They are not a 24 hour store, so their whole stock was decimated in the first 3 hours. They also limit the number of items you can buy. I wish they could stock extra on the deals they advertise. BTW, I usually end up using my Albertson’s doublers at Wal-Mart for the same reason.

    can someone explain to me the Ibotta deposit thing !)

  • Samantha

    On Option 2 Transaction 3 & 4.
    Walgreens told me today you wouldn’t get RR back if you used RR in that purchase. And they said you can only get one RR per transaction. For example in transaction 4 you wouldn’t get RR coupon for one of those items. Is this true or were they wrong?

    I tried 6 stores and gave up. I had 2 managers tell me that people are coming in and buying 5 at a time and then the same person is coming back 2 or 3 more times during the same day (Sunday) and doing it again. I am really disappointed at how selfish people can be.
