I like coupons. I think everyone likes coupons. The thing that I don’t particularly like about coupons though is how “cheap” I feel every time I use them. Especially if I have more than a few to use at once.
No, it doesn’t stop me from using it but I still hate doing it especially if there’s a line behind me and I’m taking up time to do it… and I feel like everyone looks at me like, Oh no, it’s one of those…
Whatever. Haha. Who DOESN’T like saving money? Seriously. It doesn’t grow on trees.
So when I learned that Walgreens now does paperless coupons linked to your Walgreens card I realized that this is like the most brilliant idea ever – why don’t MORE stores do this!? Seriously.
I had some shopping I needed to get done and the very first thing was this air freshener. I have a weird fascination with these. I also love candles and I almost got a new scented candle but we have SO many already I had to resist…
I also bought this lipstick from Revlon cause they had a great coupon, but I didn’t like it – didn’t look good on me… oh and sorry for the bad photoshop job 😉 Didn’t wear makeup so had to blend it up, yo.
Just doesn’t work well with my complexion. That’s the thing I wish was available for these types of cosmetics – I need to see how it looks like on me, I need try-on samples to be available! Sigh, maybe one day they will do this. Oh well.
Oh yeah, I totally forgot – you’re probably wondering how to use these coupons right?
How the app works is super simple:
- You download the Walgreens Mobile app
- You sign up or enter your card information to have it loaded up
- You browse through the coupons they have
- You click on “Add to list”
- Voila. All you need to do for them to honor the coupon is give them your Walgreens card. No need to say anything. That’s it. It’s the LEAST crazy-person way of clipping coupons that exists. Seriously.
Sooo many things you can do with the savings 😉 I mean, that’s the entire point of saving right? So you can spend more on more stuff 😉 Haha. For me, I like to treat myself with some delicious coffee and pastries and that is exactly what I did.
