Walgreens Shopping, Savings, & General Info



Shopping & Savings Tips

  • Walgreens is great to shop on Saturdays because SOMETIMES they have both the current week and the next week sale prices working!
  • Grab an ad and a coupon book at the front of the store so you’ll have them when shopping.
  • Look at the far back endcaps, usually by cosmetics, for clearance items.
  • One of the tricks with shopping at Walgreens is you usually need to have at least as many items as you have coupons, including your Register Rewards.  I have taken three of their 3 for a dollar caramels at the counter and added it to my transaction in order to be able to use all the Register Rewards and coupons for a transaction.

Weekly ad


Register Rewards

Find offers for Register Rewards in the weekly ad.


When last at Walgreens, I used some of these Register Rewards and bought another, different item that should have produced another Register Rewards and it didn’t.  The cashier told me that happens sometimes, if you use rewards but are getting them.  It might make sense in the case of not allowing for the same item to be bought off a reward from that item so that someone doesn’t clean up shop with a free item, but it didn’t make sense in this case.  The lady re-rang the transaction for me and did something so that I got my reward, so you just have to be alert as things are ringing up AND at the end of the transaction.


Balance Rewards

Balance Rewards are great to save up to certain amounts because as they build up, they are worth more.  You can also earn points automatically on your prescription refills.

Redeem for dollars off a future purchase.

10,000 points = $10
18,000 points = $20
30,000 points = $35
40,000 points = $50
