I had a few moments without kids in the car, so I hit two Walgreens in SE Portland and of course, they were totally cleaned out of the Huggies wipes and have no idea when they will restock.
Almost ready to throw in the towel, I stopped by Walmart to search out some Pull Ups Flushable Wipes — which have most certainly been pulled and no longer available. At checkout I noticed that next to the sign stating their price match promise (they will match any competitor’s published sale price on identical items) there was a sign that stated “we take competitor’s coupons.”
A few points to mention about doing this deal:
1. The Walgreens Back To School coupons state they are manufacturer’s coupons, so I think it’s inappropriate to use both the Walgreens coupon & a $.50/1 manufacturer’s coupon. I realize they both will scan, but it’s probably wrong under “the spirit of the law” principle.
2. At Walgreens, one coupon will work for multiple items. There is no way a Walmart cashier will take the one coupon and apply it to more than one tub, so your Walgreens coupons & tubs will have to match. They may also fuss if you are trying to clean the store out, so take it easy.
3. Note that the back side of the Walgreens coupon states “$1 off,” so you may run into problems if a Walmart cashier starts examining the coupon closely. Be prepared to be shut down and do not cause a scene. It’s just wipes, baby.
