Walgreens Easy Saver Rebate Program- is it going downhill?

computer.jpgNormally I love going to Walgreens once a month and getting the free items, purchasing them with my gift card, and getting the price back plus 10% because I have the rebates reloaded on the gift card.  I drug Mr. Money into a Walgreens yesterday to check out July’s free items, and I was so disappointed!

Here are the free items for July:

  • TheraBreath Starter Kit, up to $10.99.
  • Hebert’s Fully Loaded Chocolate Bars, 2.75 oz., up to $.99.
  • Nature Made Rx Essentials, up to $9.99.

That’s it!  I know I should complain about free items, and I hope this doesn’t make me sound greedy or ungrateful, but it just seems like the items that they have been offering the past few months have gone downhill.  I remember when I used to get free toothpaste and free toothbrushes and stockpile those.  No more, I guess. I really enjoyed getting the items that I already was going to buy free.  I liked having a stash of toothpaste built up.

One good thing about the Walgreens Easy Saver Rebate program is that they’ve changed it so that you are able to enter your receipts online.  When I bought Mr. Money the 99 cent candy bar last night, he made the comment that it wasn’t worth it because I wouldn’t end up doing the rebate and it would cost me 42 cents for the stamp anyway.  I can happily inform him tonight that I submitted that rebate online today. Yay me!

I’m curious- if you do the Walgreens Easy Saver Rebate Program, have you noticed it go downhill?  Should I try another drugstore’s rebate program instead?

    CVS ALL THE WAY! You have to read moneysavingmom.com’s CVS posts. They’re fantastic inf you clip sunday paper coupons and earn their extra care bucks. I got $50-ish in items this week for about $5 ourt of pocket.

  3. did not receive a rebate for suto expression air freshener. They claim item was not found on receipt although there were two receipts enclosed. Disappointing!!

    I feel Walgreens has become greedy and expensive in a slow and sneaky way. Without a published “special”, they are charging WAY more for name brand items than their competitors. Examples: Gillette razor blades, most school supplies, Beano, Mylanta, Ranitidine [just a few to start with]. These few items were way less expensive at both our little small town grocery store as well as our privately owned small local drug store. Shame on Walgreens. Want a real surprise, compare them to Wal-mart: Biotene dry mouth toothpaste $8.59 at Walgreens. Same product at Wal-mart $5.09. Buyer beware.
