Tips from Coupon Mom on How to Save Money at Walgreens

The Coupon Mom’s Secrets to Saving Big at Walgreens

Get Freebies every week if you know the right strategies

by Stephanie Nelson, The Coupon Mom

Stephanie Nelson, wants to share a few of her favorite secrets to give you ultimate savings opportunities when shopping at Walgreens!  With a little effort, you’ll be able to get great products with big savings every week.

1.  Find the deals easily. The Coupon Mom “Walgreens Deals” list is designed to make it very easy for you to find their best bargains by combining all available savings programs, including Sale prices, Manufacturers Coupons, Store Coupons, Register Rewards and printable coupons. We’ve already done the work of combining promotions and coupons for you.  Click on the Grocery Deals by State page, then click on the Walgreens logo.  After logging in, you’ll be taken to the Walgreens Deals List for the current week.  We list the deals in order of percentage saved so you can quickly see which items have the most dramatic savings.  Some items are even going to be free when you follow our system.

2.  Turn Balance Reward points into cash. Get a free “Balance Rewards Card” loyalty card and earn points when you buy selected items.  Redeem the points when you get to 5,000 points for a $5 reward, or $1 for every 1000 points. Just let the cashier know that you’d like to redeem them on your order.   If you allow your balance to grow to 40,000 points, your reward will be worth $50, so every 1000 points would be equal to $1.25.

3.  Points don’t expire and last for years. A real advantage of earning Balance Rewards Points is that they do not expire quickly. If you are an active member, your points will last up to three years. Plus, you earn 500 points for every prescription or immunization.

4.  Register rewards coupons. When you buy specific items that have Register Reward promotions, the Register Reward will print on your receipt.  They work just like cash on a future order and do not need to be used on a specific item. Register Rewards are considered a manufacturers coupon by Walgreens, so you cannot combine the Register Reward from a particular item with a manufacturer’s coupon for the same item when you are buying one item.

5.  Stack store coupons:  Walgreens has store coupons in their weekly ads and in their monthly coupon booklet found in stores.  You can use a manufacturers coupon with a store coupon on the same item to stack the savings.  The Coupon Mom Walgreens Deals list will tell you when to do that.

6.  See it in action. Check out our YouTube video on titled “How to Save at Walgreens” to learn more.

Advertised sale prices change on Sunday, and the Walgreens Deals list is generally available by Wednesday prior to the Sunday price change. Look for the “Preview Upcoming Deals” link on the current week’s list, which will become a live link as new prices are available. The Coupon Mom Newsletter, Blog and Facebook page will also have Walgreens Deals highlights published by Friday before the Sunday price changes.
