Wags...

How is everyone doing on diapers at Walgreens?
I'd love to hear how many you've gotten, and any great or horrible service stories!

I dont know how good I did but I am satisfied. I ended up with 13 packs of diapers and a pack of pull ups for just under $60. I had to go to 2 stores and they had no size 5s anywhere. But both were good experiences.

I only was able to get THREE packs. The manager was super helpful getting stuff from the back anad finding me everything I needed. HOWEVER, the cashier looked at my basket (I only had six packs) and said "Uh...we have a limit of 2 packs" Of course, I knew she was lying because it would be impossible to get the $25 worth with only two packs. When I called her on it, she began lecturing me on how if I buy so many,there will be none for the everyone else the rest of the week.
I didn't feel like arguing (even though I would have won considering the manager loaded my cart with six packs) as I stood there holding my screaming newborn. So I just walked out with my three packs.
UGH. seriously. I'm amazed how rude some people are. Is SIX packs really too many? I had even put some back because I didn't want to get TOO many!

Yesterday I was able to buy 2 packs of size 4's and wipes at the 5 Mile & Ustick store. They still had 3 more packs of size 4, but they put a limit of 3/family. Ustick & Eagle was completely sold out. Locust Grove & Fairview still had quite a bit of size 5's and Pullups (on the aisle & an endcap). I bought 5 size 5's and 1 Pullup. I spent around $50 total & received $30 RR.

I am one of those who can't find any anywhere. I'll even buy the wrong sizes and exchange them after they get more in for what I really need. I have not lived here very long and live in Nampa. Does anyone know of anywhere in Nampa that has some? I would drive to Meridian but I truly barely know where I am!

I got 3 packs which was all they had. They told me they would be getting more in but didn't know when, I have been calling but both days I have called I have been put on hold for 15 mins to talk to the right person (why I have to talk to a manager just to see if diapers came in is something I haven't figured out yet. One lady got mad at me and said she didn't even know what I wanted and how to help me. I asked if they had diapers...)So I gave up.

I went to Ontario this morning and got 3 packages of size 5s. They still had 6s even some 5s in the natural fit. The checker was very nice.

From what I understand, the Eagle/Ustick is getting a shipment today. I talked to the assistant manager last night. Get a raincheck for them if you can find them. The manager at LG and Fairview said they screwed up on their ordering and ordered was less than they had anticipated. She told me they were getting a shipment on Wednesday (I haven't checked) and one on saturday. HTH!

Eagle and Ustick had a few this morning and they let me use the $5 coupons on the size 4 diapers!

I was told yesterday that the Overland & Meridian store should be getting a shipment today. Their customer service was horrible though. One employee mentioned that "all this diaper craziness" made her want to quit her job. Whatever.
Great customer service at Locust Grove & Fairview and the 5-Mile and Ustick stores when I went on Monday.

The Meridian/Overland store had plenty today, but they have changed the rules specific to this sale. They will only allow you to use one diaper coupon per purchase. For example, I bought two packages of diaps and a package of wipes and they would only allow me to use one $5 coupon on the whole order. I talked to the manager, who was very helpful and he said that they are taking the coupons literally and if they coupon says one coupon per purchase, they take that literally. He also said that because of the $10 catalina, that is why they would only allow one coupon per order because I called him on their store policy that states you just cannot have more coupons than items. So, I did get diapers, but I didn't get a very good deal on them. Hope this helps!

Sarah & Eric said...

So far I have 3 for $7 including the $10 off catalina. I got them on the regular diapers, not the natural fit or the gentle care because they were out of them when I went on Monday. I went to the Meridian/Overland store and the lady there was rude but gave me them anyways. My neighbor went to the same one today and told her she could only use one coupon for 3 packages not 3 coupons for 3 packages. I'll be trying the 5 mile and Overland store when my baby wakes up.

Crystal Ashton said...

I ended up with 8 packages. My husband actually went for me first thing Monday morning since I had to teach preschool. Yep, just him and all the mommies. Later that day the manager still remembered the big dad there buying diapers. I am so proud of my guy...

Jessica said...

I was terrible - I was able to get 10 packs of diapers on two different trips!They didn't put a limit on amount purchased and used the 5 dollar coupons on every pack of diapers/wipes. I got 9 wipes for free - and spent $30 out pocket. I also have a total of $30 in RR! (by the way - this is a utah store - YEAH for diaper sales!!!!)

I had a great experience at the Walgreens in Caldwell on 10th and Ustick. They were out of all of the Natural Fit and Gentle Care products, but they were great to work with and willing to try anything...so we tried the coupons on other Huggies products and all of my coupons worked! I got 5 packs of the regular size 5 and 6 diapers and three mega packs of wipes (shea, calming touch and thick clean and fresh). My friend went in later and had the same experience.

Carol said...

The Walgreens at Eagle and Chinden got a huge shipment this morning (Friday). Hurry over...they still had all of the sizes available.

Robyn said...

My walgreens would not allow me to use past RR on my diaper purchase. I guess you can never use a RR to get a new RR- even if it is from something else. Do you know if that is true?

Dean Family said...

My store in Nampa was wonderful. it's on Greenhurst/12th. I went in Monday and ORDERED my packs, then picked them up Thursday. It went smoothly. Plus I used my $10 RR on the pop deal and still got the $3 RR back, even though they told me it wouldn't work! :) Hey Free pop?...definetly worth it!!

I'm sorry that several had a hard time. Mine went well, I went at 8am on Monday morning and got 4 packs, worked great only $24 for 4 packs and got the $10RR. I had to get a rain check for the next four and I picked them up today at the Chinden/Eagle Rd WG. They were great and very helpful. Though they did say that "You are one of those crazy moms?" and I said YES, very proudly. Yeah for having 8 packs of diapers for only $4.25 per pack, my coupons worked great though I did have to go and exchange the gentle care ones at Walmart.
