Walgreens Coupons & Deals


Christie - Author of WildForWags.com - Walgreens Coupons & Walgreens DealsWelcome! I hope you’ll find some valuable information here on stretching your dollar when shopping at my favorite pharmacy, Walgreens. As for me, I spent eleven years as a financial educator, certified by the National Foundation for Credit Counseling. I taught a variety of classes covering such topics as improving your credit, saving for retirement, buying your first home, getting out of debt, saving on groceries and more.

I realized that many of my clients were spending a high percentage of their income on basic necessities. If I could help them lower their costs they would have additional money to put towards their debt. So I decided to create my own site (wildforwags.com – Walgreens coupons & Walgreens Deals) dedicated to helping them save at Walgreens.

I’m also a licensed Realtor in the state of Florida. I’m actively involved with various community organizations serving as a volunteer mentor with my local Domestic Violence Shelter and volunteering with my local for Habitat for Humanity.

I’m a graduate of the University of Miami with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Communications and Political Science and a proud alumni of the Kappa Kappa Gamma organization.

Thanks for stopping by :-)

Hi Christy,
I read about you and it says you reside in Florida. I thought you were in Hawaii? Where are you? I thought you also give classes about couponing here?
Please advise.
Thank you,


Christie January 24, 2011 at 7:41 pm

Hi Dawn,

No, I’m in Florida. I’ve never been to Hawaii but it sounds delightful! :-)


Celia June 8, 2011 at 12:53 am

What part of Florida??


Dawn January 24, 2011 at 8:05 pm

shucks, it would be nice to see a mentor in hawaii so we can follow the scenarios to a t and it will work. Our prices are different here. I wish we had more sales like you folks and even our other grocery stores are not as good with sales. I like your site and there are others I check out but it spend alot of time because I need to keep double checking the prices and our inserts are always lacking. Any suggestions. Do you order your coupons from the clipping services on Thursday or Friday since WAGS has their sneek peaks? Any tips would be greatly appreciated so I can free up some time…
Thanks again

I’m a couponer living in Hawaii and although I reside here and your deals are for Floridas prices, it still works here in Hawaii. The prices are usually about a dollar more than the prices advertised in your deals. I love how you break everything down. I followed your Tums, Crest Mouthwash and Colgate deal and tweaked it to get me some old spice deodorants and proglide razors. My total before taxes, coupons, and register rewards was $114.77. After coupons, and register rewards, my out of pocket was $34 and some change, and I still have a $3 RR to use on my next run. Saved $80 which is REALLY good for Hawaii. Thank you for all your tips and scenarios. I find them very helpful.



Christie October 30, 2013 at 10:47 am

Thank you Lei! I have heard that Hawaii is more expensive for just about everything but what a wonderful place to live! Maybe I can visit one day. :)


lori February 22, 2011 at 5:53 pm

What a nice pic! Love the coupon binder πŸ˜‰


Veronica Blanco February 25, 2011 at 1:22 pm

Hi Christie,
I recently started a blog and I love your site. I have your button on my blog but I was wondering what the proper etiquitte for sharing your scenarios on my blog. Do I reference your blog, and is that ok?


Tanesha March 11, 2011 at 4:09 pm

I am so glad I found you! Thanks for the Wild Wags Tips I just now stumbled across your website in 2011, and love it! :)


Mary March 20, 2011 at 6:26 pm

I went to my Wags today bought Colgate toothpaste on clearance for .49 cents each I did buy 7…what a great deal, they also had lots of icecream on clearance.I feel so good when I save money.


Kellie Z. March 21, 2011 at 8:42 pm

Hi Christy,

I live on the North Coast and have always used coupons and I’m enjoying learning how to use them even more than I ever knew, i.e., stacking, bogo, cash rewards, etc. This is fun and exciting but my friend and I have noticed that the cashiers are getting attitude problems with us when we hit the store. Walgreens isn’t the only place we got attitudes from, and one local market has banned internet coupons in their store altogether. Any advice on how to get these people to stop acting like it’s money coming out of their own paychecks?


melinda March 22, 2011 at 1:14 am

Is that a binder you’re holding in your picture? If so I’d love to know where to find one like that.


Christie March 22, 2011 at 9:11 am

Hi Melinda – Yes it is! You can check them out HERE.


Nadia May 9, 2011 at 12:01 am


I have the same exact coupon binder :) and soo far I like it. I holds a lot of coupons…I just started couponing abt a month ago, but I put a lot of work into it my very fist months…now i got the hang of it and loving it!


Rebecca March 22, 2011 at 12:45 pm

i tried to contact you through you’re Contact page, but it comes up blank (tried on a couple different computers) I found a great deal on something at Walgreens with this weeks ad, but not sure where to post it. Where do you prefer things like that go?


Christie March 22, 2011 at 4:44 pm

Hm, I thought I fixed that. Oh, the site is never done! You can e-mail me at christie (at) wildforwags.com


Erica April 24, 2011 at 3:44 am

Hey Christie…I couldnt wait for a reasonable hour to head to my Wags for this weeks deals! thanks to your awesome site…I was actually able to “educate” the store managers and cashier about the deals this week…(Splenda & Stayfree)Anyway…I noticed that you maintain a page for clearance items. I found Skintimate Shave Gel marked down to $0.75…I used my Skintimate $0.55/1 and scored 4 for $0.80 plus tax!! Yay!


hd web camera April 25, 2011 at 10:27 pm

Really cool information, thanks!


Carla james May 8, 2011 at 5:03 pm

Just wanted to share that the little $1.00 boxes of cereal (capt crunch and honey Graham oh’s) are .25 but not marked that way. Add in a q for $1 (redplum or smart source) off of 2 any size cap’t crunch and you make .25 on each box you buy.


denise May 11, 2011 at 3:44 pm

Kira Mountcastle May 14, 2011 at 9:42 am

Hi Christie…I am new to couponing and also live in S. Florida. I read your article in the Palm Beach Post today and would like to get some tips on couponing in the real world with our local Publix, Walgreens and CVS. Thanks in advance for any help in the matter..!!!!!


tonya May 16, 2011 at 12:52 pm

Thanks again and enjoy your weekend!

Essie June 13, 2011 at 1:14 pm

I read your post today about a giveaway to FBFans, but I haven’t been able to find you. May you point me in the right direction? I would really like to be involved in the discussion. Thank you!


Cyndi June 16, 2011 at 12:50 pm

If a coupon expires say with today’s date on it-can it be used today?


J-me G June 18, 2011 at 1:26 pm

It states you started couponing to pay off debt, well about a month and a half ago I started the same. My 1 year old has has many surgeries in his first year, one being open heart surgery, so the medical bills, even after insurance are just overwhelming. Couponing has started to help a lot in this short period, but do you have any other pointers to help? Any extra advice would be appreciated greatly!!

Thank you so much for your blog! It is such a little rush to know how much I am saving and how much you are helping! You are appreciated greatly in this household…and I have told MOST my friends about you as well!


jodi June 21, 2011 at 8:50 pm

Hi Christie,

Im not sure what part of florida you are in, but I think I remember reading you are south, and I see you had an article in the palm beach post, I am also in palm beach, and looking to donate and get involved with the commmunity, but cannot seem to find many places. If you know of anywhere to donate items too and volunteer around palm beach I would greatly appreciate the help. Who knew it was so difficult to find a place to volunteer or donate.


Lisa June 24, 2011 at 4:35 pm

I read on someones blog this week about a $10 Ensure rebate but didn’t have time then to check it out. They gave credit to you, now I have no idea where i saw it. Can you tell me where to find the rebate info?
Thank you


Christie June 24, 2011 at 6:00 pm
belinda eichor June 26, 2011 at 9:43 am

I am looking for the bogo for stayfree do you know where i can find it at.


dana June 27, 2011 at 9:45 pm

my walgreens says all monthly booklets, summer beauty guides and infant care booklets are manufacturer coupons and cannot be combinded, is that correct or should i call corporate? Any advice is appreciated.


sam james September 21, 2011 at 5:40 pm

They are wrong. They are store coupons. I stack them every week. Hope you get them straightened out!


sabina March 18, 2012 at 1:33 pm

i had one 8 rr that i wanted to use for a few items but the walgreens said i can only use it for one item, is that correct?


Karen Wagoner May 28, 2012 at 8:21 am

My Walgreens had the same sign posted for the Skintimate Shave cream but it was $4.69.


CathyG June 16, 2012 at 10:06 am

Hi Christie!

How are the bonus buys working at Wags that I see in the online weekly ads at iheartwags.com? Are there signs in the stores or do you just have to know what the deals are and the discounts will show up at the registers? Thanks!


Christie June 16, 2012 at 10:56 am

It depends how good your store is about putting up signs. They should ring up the sale price at the register. I usually have the ad up on my phone just in case ;).


kim miller June 20, 2012 at 9:03 pm

christine i have a problem with when to put fillers in and i always try to have at these 2 coupons for idem but it says one for each idem but than they say u can stack i get confused at wal-greens please help.


Christie June 20, 2012 at 9:56 pm

You can stack a Walgreens coupon and a Manufacturers coupon, but not two manufacturers coupons. Also if a coupon is $1/2 – then it counts towards both items, not just one. So that might be causing issues too. Maybe read my frequently asked questions page for some more help. :)
You can see that below…


Shelly July 13, 2012 at 10:14 am

I have found some great clearance deals at Walgreens. How do I send them to you to post and share?


Christie July 13, 2012 at 10:36 am

you can just email me a picture and what you got.

christie @ wildforwags.com (take out the spaces :))


Shauna July 29, 2012 at 10:15 pm

Hi, i posted this on your page, but would like to know if i could share your deals with my group on facebook, we just started and would love to be able to keep up on it all:)


Christie July 30, 2012 at 1:46 am

If you want to post links from her on your group page you can absolutely do that! Thanks for sharing! πŸ˜‰


Ann October 2, 2012 at 8:01 am

Hi, Christie.
Wal-green seems to upgrade rebate submmision and I don’t know how?
If you can explain how, that will be a great help.
Thanks always.


Amber October 10, 2012 at 3:43 pm

Hi Christie! I was super busy when the Balance Rewards program started and now I am behind.. I just got my card a few days ago. Can you explain how it wor*s? I couldn’t find a section on your site with the rules and whatnot.
Do we pay less cause of the pts, do we use them somehow, why do we get RR and pts?


Terri March 27, 2013 at 9:41 am

How come the tabs aren’t updated? When you click on a tab at the top, it takes you to January; or am I doing it wrong?


Christie March 27, 2013 at 9:58 am

Which Tab are you clicking on? Could be a glitch I need to fix because you should see current stuff.


Gina March 28, 2013 at 9:08 pm

Hi Christie, I just wanted to let you know I LOVE your website! Thanks for sharing!!


Sharon June 3, 2013 at 9:25 pm

I really enjoy reading the tips, you post, on saving money! Thanks so much for all the valuable info you include about how to maximize savings at Walgreens. I have learned how to use the register rewards and manufacturer coupons more effectively, with your help. Thanks again for your great info. :)


CathyG July 31, 2013 at 9:36 am

Hi Christie! Need some help with the $2 off $10 catalina print. Do I use that coupon first if I have others? I’m wanting to buy 4 of the U by Kotex and I have 2 of the $2 off 2 coupons and I have the Wags coupon. I want to make sure I get everything in the correct order. Thanks for your help!


Christie July 31, 2013 at 11:32 am

Yes give the $2 coupon first – Because of the Wags coupon only $1.99 from each U by Kotex will go towards the $10 because it’s after Wags Qs. So keep that in mind. You’d need to buy (5) U by Kotex and a highlighter for 19Β’ or something to hit the $10.


Laura Davis September 15, 2013 at 4:11 pm

Love your site. As a SBA for Walgreens I would like to let you know that many (but not all) Beauty Advisors have coupons for cosmetic dept. items at the Cosmetic Register. Many of us clip them each week so we can offer our customers a good deal.


Jen September 23, 2013 at 3:09 am

I work at a walgreens and just wanted to let you know that coupons such as the 5,000 points when you spend $20 dollars or more, can be used once per transaction, but when it says store coupon on the top and it doesnt say one per person, you can use it as many times as you want if you do more than one transaction. you could do tons of transactions if you spend more than $20 on each! customers dont seem to know this but it’s important for us couponers! as long as it says “store coupon” on top, it can be used as much as an in-ad coupon. Get those good deals, love your site!


gracie October 12, 2013 at 10:45 am

i just had a couponing issue of course of Walgreens i told that they are no longer taking printed coupons and that i could not use the coupon any way on the dial soap special BIGI since i was already getting them free i told the cashier when did they stop taking printed coupons she was unable to answer my questions so i told her then cancel may transaction of course cashier with an attudude. manger came and had to cancel transaction i also asked him about the no printed coupon he said due to many people using fake coupons we are no longer taking them. have you heard anything about this new issue with Walgreens?????


Mary January 30, 2014 at 9:44 pm

Hi Christie, I had a great shopping trip today at Walgreens and was pleasantly surprised to see that $1.79 was deducted from my total under coupons and it said mfg. coupon beside it. In my long list of purchases were 3 bags of Lay’s chips on sale for $1.99 which I thought was a great price. I was just on Walgreens.com and found out that you can choose from coupons on their site and link them to your Balance Rewards card so this is what I did, but I ended up getting a larger amount off than I thought it would be. It was worth the few minutes that it took to look at them and choose. Just wanted to let others know of one more way to save at Walgreens!


Steve McKinnion April 14, 2014 at 1:08 pm

Double dip Saturday 4/19 for Almay cosmetics. Monthly sales and BOGO for 50% off.


Pauline Solliday April 27, 2014 at 7:32 pm

Hi Christie: I am speaking at a Home School conference in Southern California in June with another home school friend. Our topic is Frugal Living. May I site your blog during the conference? We will be listing all the resources that have helped us both to actually live a frugal lifestyle, stay out of debt, live on one income and home school.


Christie April 27, 2014 at 8:05 pm

I’d be honored! :) And congrats on the opportunity to share how you are able to do all of that!


Jean May 1, 2014 at 11:18 pm

Thanks for all your wisdom. It just seems to be getting more difficult to check out at Walgreens. Tonite, their mistakes were just outrageous, and even simple coupons were working on their system and they had to force them. But I want to ask you where in the Rewards Points program they are stating that the amount spent is after manufacturing coupons cuz I can’t find that. I bought $21 of Schick Razors/cartridges and used a $10 coupon. I didn’t get the 5000 points for spending over $20. I see other people confused about this on comments, and have called and corporate gave them their points. What do you know on this, as I’ve read their pdf and nothing is stated. Thanks. (Thankfully in Milwaukee we have a Sentry store that allows double coupons with only restriction that you can’t use more than two of one item. So nice to check out without all these crazy layers of points and coupons.)


Jean May 1, 2014 at 11:19 pm

Meant to say even simple coupons WEREN’T working on their register. The Renuzit B3/G3 had to be manually maneuvered. Took forever.


Candace Barnard May 5, 2014 at 2:21 pm

I don’t know how to do this— by 1 Colgate get 1.50rr , buy one mouthwash get1.25rr, what u do about this 2 RR —reader Candace Barnard


Michelle June 18, 2014 at 2:13 pm

I have been told on 2 different occasions that I cannot use all of my balance rewards points in one trans w/ or w/o qs. Ex. I had 2 scrubbing bubbles 2/$6 (get 1000 bal rewards pts), I had 12000 pts on my card but wanted to use a $1.49 rr and the difference 4.50 w/ my bal rewards. I was told I could only use $3.00 bal rewards and had to use cash for the difference. Is this true?


Christie Hardcastle June 18, 2014 at 3:07 pm

You can use them in specific increments – $1, $2, $3, $5, $10 and up from there. Keep in mind if you use $3 of points on that deal you won’t get points back.


visitor August 26, 2014 at 12:41 am

From another deal site, someone wrote the following:
“If you are an AARP member, and you buy at least $15 or more of Walgreens branded health and/or wellness products, your purchase might/should trigger a mail-in form printout at checkout good for 1 year of AARP membership, compliments of Walgreens.”. S/he bought

Do you know anything about this promotion?


visitor August 26, 2014 at 12:14 pm

Answer my own question. The offer is page 58-59 in the Aug coupon book.


Julie January 15, 2015 at 12:24 am

What does (REDEEMABLE AT WALMART) on the Lindsay Olive coupon mean? Will Walgreens redeem it?


Christie Hardcastle January 15, 2015 at 9:16 am

As long as it does’t say ONLY my stores will take it.


May April 14, 2015 at 1:53 pm

The ad for the St. Louis, MO area this week has booster points, 50 points per dollar, ONLY if $30.00 or more is spent! I called corporate and was transferred to Balance Rewards, where the woman knew only about the 5,000-pont deal, put me on hold & after several minutes explained that Walgreens had four different booster deals this week, & my area’s market was just unlucky enough to be the one with the worst “offer”. I let them know that there are several Walgreen blogs that let shoppers know of deals, so we know when they are favoring one area over another & the only thing that this creates is ticked-off customers, not reliable consumer information. She did say that I can go online & change my zip code on my account and get the 5,000 points with a $30.00 online purchase, so I thought I’d let you know.


Christie Hardcastle April 14, 2015 at 5:15 pm

Wow, well aren’t you smart! I think I will give that a shot. :)


Jennifer July 1, 2015 at 3:20 pm

Hello: Christie. Under what zip code can I find the coupon for, Pepperidge Farm Swirl bread. The zip that you have listed is too short. Thanks Jennifer.


Christie Hardcastle July 1, 2015 at 4:15 pm

Thanks for letting me know Jennifer! My little program likes to ignore the #0 when it’s in front – since in anything but a zip code it would serve no purpose. So whenever you see that (if one slips past me like this one did) just add a 0 to the front. Thanks! :)


Bonnie L Turner May 2, 2016 at 1:15 am

Hi Christy, Is there any explanation for a repeating problem printing coupons? I just chose 28 coupons to print from this site. Up popped that nasty direction to give my mobile phone number to them ( no way to tell where this goes) in order to get a “code” to give back to them to allow printing of these coupons. This was my go-to site to not have to deal with this. Now this site has it too. You are given option of installing the coupon printer for Coupons.com. I’ve tried this and nothing happens. No coupons! Why is this “thing” there? If these companies want their coupons printed, why make it impossible?


Christie Bisbee May 2, 2016 at 10:01 am

It’s going to happen to you anytime you go to print coupons.com coupons. They are just trying to crack down on fraud. There is usually a little fine print on the bottom with a link for “I don’t have a cell phone”. Try clicking that. If that doesn’t work, anytime you go to print coupons.com coupons from anywhere – it’s going to be either get the code or don’t print coupons. Nothing I or anyone else can do about it.
