Walgreens Irish Spring Body Wash Confusion

Why is the FREE Irish Spring Body Wash coupon “Rolling”?!?

The barcode on the FREE Irish Spring Body Wash coupon is coded to take off $4.50. However, the purchase price of the Irish Spring Body Wash is $4.49. The reason why the coupon is coded to take off $4.50 instead of $4.49 is because the closest “value code” to put in is $4.50.

When the cashier scans this coupon it will beep due to the fact that the value of the coupon ($4.50) is more then the value of the item ($4.49). The cashier will then have to manually enter the coupon to take of $4.49. After doing this you’ll end up getting another FREE coupon since the Catalina machine doesn’t realize that the same FREE coupon was just used.

I’ve gotten quite a few emails about this, so I’m hoping this may clear up some of the confusion.

    Wow, great post!
    You cleared up all my questions, thanks!

  2. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    That makes sense. Thanks for letting us know!

    I’m new to your blog and have commented a few times…but you are so awesome to share all your fabulous finds. I’ve been doing this deal and it’s awesome…free rolling coupons rock!

    I purchased the Irish Spring this week and received the coupon for a free bottle. When I used this coupon on my next trip to Walgreens I did not get another printable coupon. Just wanted to share my experience, it must depend on what Walgreens you go to.

  5. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    So it’s ok for the cashier to manually adjust the amount of the coupon? I had a cashier say she couldn’t do it because it was coupon fraud!

  6. Collin (Mrs. Hip)


    Yes, it’s ok for the cashier to manually adjust the coupon down (she can write the new price on the coupon).

    They have this advertised in their weekly ad, that if your purchase the Irish Spring you’ll get a coupon for a FREE one, so they cannot sit there and tell you that they won’t except a valid coupon… especially when this promotion is advertised in their weekly ad.

    Did this today using my $1 that came in my colegate gift pack…I got the free one and I did not get another “free” coupon.

  8. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    i did this deal today, and after my 2nd transaction (using the coupon to get the body wash free), i did NOT get another coupon. eh. i still didn’t have to spend any money OOP, though, so it’s all good.

  9. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Just wondering, do you pay tax on the free one?

  10. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I was able to do this rolling deal 5 times but the 5th time it did not spit out another free coupon and I did have to pay sales tax. Such a great deal – I can’t wait to see how long this stash lasts my hubby.

  11. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Did not work for me more than once. Bummed, its just like a bogo. CVS is cheaper on things like this I think. My hubby was excited though.

  12. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    where did you get this coupon?

  13. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    After you pay for the Irish Spring Body Wash you’ll get a coupon to get another one for free. It will come out of the register by the Catalina machine.

  14. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    It’s not even in my weekly ad! Darn! I tried it at both stores I got nothing!

  15. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Im sad that the day I decide to try this, they go and fix it. New Q now says 4.49.

  16. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Just went to do this today and the coupon says $4.49. I don’t think this “rolling” deal works anymore. Too bad!

  17. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    is this deal dead?

  18. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Yes, this deal is over now.
