Walgreens: How To Save Guide
I want to start by saying that I am going to do my best to keep this simple. Walgreens can be tricky so I wanted to give you all a “Walgreens: How to Save Guide” to help you figure out the best way for you to save at Walgreens. Everyone is different and it is more than okay if you choose to just start off using one system. Let’s get right into it!
Walgreens has a few Different saving methods. Of course you can use manufacture coupons either from inserts or printed from websites like Coupons.com. I also have a direct page for you to be able to print from coupons.com HERE. There are a couple other ways to save even more at Walgreens.
Walgreens Coupon Book
Walgreens has a “Savings Book” usually in the front of the store by the registers and the store ads. These coupon books are good for the entire month, They are filled with Store coupons. These are for Walgreens only. You can use both a Manufacture coupon and a Walgreens coupon both on a single item. You do not need to clip these coupons. Simply let the cashier scan the coupon.
These are coupons that print at the register after you purchase certain items in the store. These coupons are for money off of your next purchase. This is a great way to lower your out-of-pocket price. You want to use your register rewards to purchase different items than what you got them for. “Example: You buy Crest Toothpaste and get $1.00 Register Reward. You do not want to use that Register Reward on another Crest toothpaste because you will NOT get another Register Reward. ” However, you can use it on another item that gives Register Rewards and keep rolling them.
These are points you can earn for buying advertised items. You must sign up for the Balance Reward card. You can sing up in store or online. These points can be used to purchase items as well, 1,000 points = $1, and so on. You can use register rewards to pay for items and receive points on your account. You can NOT use points to pay for your transaction and still get points back. This can be confusing to some. If you are buying items that will earn points you will not want to use points to pay for this transaction but, you can use Register Rewards. You CAN use points on items and still get Register Rewards though.
I know sometimes Walgreens gets a little confusing. Start off slow, remember you can always ask a cashier and you can get their coupon policy HERE. There are some great deals at Walgreens. I will be working on a few more “In detail” posts on getting the most when shopping at Walgreens. Until then I hope this helps break down the different ways you can save at Walgreens.
If you have any questions feel free to ask. I will do my very best to get them answered for you.
