UPDATE: I am finding out that this policy is at most Walgreen’s.

I went to Walgreen’s this morning to do this simple transaction:

Right Guard Deodorant 1.8-4 oz. Buy one get one FREE, $3.99 each (these are the upgraded nice ones!)
$3/2 printable (Print 2)
Final price= 2 for $.99, or $.49 each!

I was alerted by the cashier that he couldn’t take my coupon!

When I asked why, he said that the coupon was for $3/2, which meant $1.50/1 and another $1.50/1.  He couldn’t take the $1.50/1 off the free deodorant I got on the “BOGO Free” sale.   He said that would mean I was making $1.50 off the free deodorant, and Walgreen’s new coupon policy is that they can’t use any manufacturer’s coupons on a free item.

I tried to explain that the coupon was for $3/2, and since the deodorant was $3.99, I was still paying $.99 (or $.49 each).  He said that he could take a coupon for one item on the BOGO Free sale, but if the coupon said “anything/2”, he couldn’t take it along with a BOGO Free sale.

Please let me know if your Walgreen’s has implemented this new policy as well!
