Walgreens (this was the first time I have tried shopping sales here)

The thing that I learned about researching Walgreens online is that you can only have one coupon per item (and you Register Rewards count as a coupon!)  Overall my experience was very positive ... up front I told the cashier this was my first time shopping there and she seemed very nice ... which is good when you are doing 3 transactions! :)
