"Rolling" SoftSoap Bath Gel Catalina at Walgreens

What's up with this deal you ask? Well, when you purchase Softsoap Bath Gel for $3.99 at Walgreens, a catalina - or coupon- prints at the register for one free bottle. As of yesterday, the deal was rolling, meaning you purchase one, a coupon prints for a free one. Use the free coupon to "purchase" another bottle and another "free" coupon prints. Personally, I have a few issues with this. I believe this must be an error somewhere because ALL THE WALGREENS IN MY AREA - 7 have had trouble. I purchased one bottle using the coupon from the March issue of All You Magazine ($1.00 off one) and received my free coupon. I thus proceeded to "purchase" my free bottle with coupon and was approached my the manager asking if I had already done this deal. Apparently, one customer earlier in the morning had tried to purchase 100 bottles (all the store had) in 100 transactions for the purchase of the initial bottle........COME ON PEOPLE!!! Use some common sense.....one person CAN RUIN it for everyone else..........

Show some restraint......even if the item is free.......

I picked up two bottles yesterday(in West Valley) and had no problem but a lady walked up as I was walking away and literally scooped all of the bottles into her cart and proceded to take up the checkers time by doing approx 50 transactions!This is so frustrating, I am wondering why Walgreens doesn't put a per person limit more often! I probably should have said something to the manager but I didn't have time. Thanks for reminding everyone that it is plain rude to behave like this!

I can't agree more! This is such a huge pet peeve of mine. Someone gets greedy and ruins it for everyone else. It is so selfish. I can't tell you how many examples I have of people doing this.

Couldnt agree more! The Wags I went to yesterday actually had a limit of one per customer.

It's such a shame when people get greedy! They don't realize there are other people out there that might benefit from a free bottle. Or they don't care- and either way is a shame. >.<

Thank you for posting this!! All of the Walgreens in my area are completely out of them and I am sure this is the reason why. Completely rude and unfair is all I can say. Seriously, who needs that many anyway? Can't we share the love and allow everyone to get one or two items for free.

Thanks Janet!
