I’m all about saving money, in fact, clipping coupons is actually where MomStart started as a blog. I used to clip coupons and go to the store, like Walgreens and save money and then write about it. I loved writing about saving money and sharing how to use coupons. I would even clip coupons and give them away as a giveaway. And through the years I try to share with you when different stores start new savings programs, and I’m really happy to share with you the new paperless coupons on the Walgreens App available on iOS and Android.
I have an Android phone and went to the Google apps store and downloaded the free Walgreens app and from the app was able to create my own account for the savings program. It was pretty easy, it asked for my name, phone number and e-mail address. I looked on the app and found some products I needed to purchase. I needed some Mitchum Deodorant.
I also needed some sunblock for my kids.
And I don’t like to mention this but I needed some Head & Shoulders for a skin fungus that I have. Shh, don’t tell anyone but you can tell everyone that I got a GREAT deal on it at Walgreens with their ecoupons.
While I was there, the products that my husband uses were also on special with coupons so I purchased those as well.
The Walgreens Paperless Coupons are manufacturer eCoupons that can be ‘clipped’ to your own Balance Rewards account (that you can apply for from your phone) and redeemed when you purchase the product. To redeem you simply scan your Balance Rewards Card (via the App on your phone, the actual card or by punching in your phone number) at checkout and it automatically is applied. And it worked. I felt so silly because I forgot my phone at home so I had to type in my phone number. I was worried that it wouldn’t have my account information but it was attached to my phone number. All the coupons I clipped the night before were there and I saved. Boy did I save.
So long story short…….you no longer need to use scissors to cut coupons or remember to bring them to the store. Be sure to sync your Balance Rewards membership to the Mobile App to get started. Each paperless coupon can only be used once. Once it is redeemed it will be deleted from your coupon list.
I loved how easy it was to use them.
