    Wow, that’s incredible. You say those are all from coupons in Walgreen’s ad? That is the ad that comes with the “junk mail”? Are coupons from other sources? I notice in your other Walgreen’s posts you use newspaper coupons. What percentage of the coupons you mention are from there and do you think it is worth it to get the paper for the coupons if you don’t normally get the paper otherwise (I can find all that biased news online for free…). Thank you!

    Is the Quilted Northern in the flyer? I don’t see it in my copy but if it is on sale for $4 I’d love to get some and use my coupons.

  3. Jen Says:

    I didn’t notice it in the ad either but when I walked in the door there was a display of them as a new product on sale for $4 minus the esaver coupon of 1.00 off minus the manufacturer’s coupon for 1.00 = 2.00 for a 6 pack of Big Rolls. Side note: from using one of the rolls- this is the most absorbent soft toilet paper I’ve ever used! A steal at $2!

  4. Jen Says:

    Hey Becky. I would say that 75 % of my manufacturer’s coupons come from the newspaper. The other 25% come from printable online coupons. I definitely think getting the paper is worth it for the inserts; however, look for a good deal on getting only the Sunday paper. I got mine when they were running a deal for .60 cents for the Sunday paper. It is convenient because it is delivered to my door (as long as I grab it up before my neighbors do like they did last week 😦 ) plus it is .90 cents less than what I would pay for it in a store/news stand. The Walgreen’s ad with Walgreen’s coupons also comes in the paper OR you can get it at your local Walgreen’s store along with an Easy Saver Catelog which has coupons and rebates as well. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any more questions.
