I have received a ton of emails and comments regarding the Old Spice deal going on this week at Walgreens. To see this week’s Walgreens ad & coupon matchups, go HERE. I am going to break down the three options I posted for this week’s Walgreens ad because I can totally see how these options are confusing!
Get $4.50 RR WYB any participating Old Spice or Gillette Body Wash, $4.49 FREE
Below are the coupon options available for this deal. You can not use each coupon on just one body wash. I am giving you all of the available coupon options so that you can check your coupon stash and see what coupons you have and then you will need to decide which coupons to use. I gave you three scenarios for the coupons below based on the best deals utilizing these coupons.

Option One: Buy 2 Old Spice Body Wash, use one B1G1, spend $4.49, receive $4.50 RRs, makes your bodywashes FREE!
For Option One, I have you using only one coupon. You are using the Buy One Get One Free Old Spice Body Wash coupon from 04-18-10 RP or 05-02-10 PG. You are going to buy two Old Spice body washes (priced at $4.49 each). Since you are using one B1G1 coupon, you are only paying for one body wash (remember the second body wash is free when you use this coupon). So, you will end up paying $4.49 for two body washes and then a $4.50 RR (Register Reward) will print out that you can use on another transaction. This makes both body washes free. ** NOTE** You can only do this deal once per transaction. You will not receive two sets of $4.50 RRs if you do this deal twice in just one transaction. Also, you can not use the RR you received from this deal on another Old Spice/Gillette Body Wash deal. If you used the RR on a second Old Spice or Gillette Body wash deal, a new $4.50 RR will not print out.
Option Two: Buy 2 Old Spice Body Wash, Buy 1 Old Spice Fresh Collection Deodorant, use one B1G1 Body Wash, use one Free Deodorant, spend $4.49, receive $4.50, makes your two body washes and one deodorant FREE!
For Option Two, I have you using two coupons. You are using the Buy One Get One Free Old Spice Body Wash coupon from 4-18-10 RP or 05-02-10 PG. You are also using the Buy One Old Spice Body Wash Get One Fresh Collection Anti-Perspirant Deodorant Free from 05-02-10 PG. You are going to buy 2 Body Washes (priced at $4.49 each) and you are going to buy one Old Spice Deodorant. Since you are using the B1G1 body wash coupon, you are only paying for one body wash. And, since you are technically paying for one body wash, you can use the free deodorant coupon because the deodorant states “Buy One Old Spice Body Wash, get one Old Spice Deodorant free”. So, you will end up paying $4.49 for two Old Spice Body Washes and one Old Spice Deodorant. A $4.50RR will print out which makes all three products totally free! ** NOTE** You can only do this deal once per transaction. You will not receive two sets of $4.50 RRs if you do this deal twice in just one transaction. Also, you can not use the RR you received from this deal on another Old Spice/Gillette Body Wash deal. If you used the RR on a second Old Spice or Gillette Body wash deal, a new $4.50 RR will not print out.
Option Three: Buy 2 Gillette Body Wash, use one $4/2, spend $5.00, receive $4.50 RRs, makes it $0.25 each
For Option Three’s scenario, I have you buying Gillette Body Wash. If I were you, I would use the $4/2 Gillette Deodorant or Body Wash 05-02-10 coupons at Target to score FREE Gillette body wash (go HERE for more info). But, if you really need Gillette body wash and you want to get it at Walgreens, what you need to do is Buy two Gillette Body Wash (priced at $4.49 each). You will use one $4/2 coupon from 05-02-10 PG. You will spend $5.00 on the two Gillette Body Wash and will receive a $4.49 RR making each body wash only $0.25.
Let me know how the transaction goes when you do your Walgreens shopping trip this week! Walgreens is super tricky. Sometimes I want to pull my hair out because each store has different “policies” and it seems oftentimes the cashiers have zero training over how to use coupons. Also – I’ve had issues before with store managers who can’t explain policies or how RRs work. If you decide to shop at Walgreens, you WILL get awesome deals. But, oftentimes you will have to work for them. So, be prepared that your transactions may not go smoothly. Remember to keep your cool and always ask to speak to a manager if things are not going the way you think they should. Good luck and leave comments on this post letting all of us know how your shopping trip goes!
