Walgreens Shopping List 1/13 – 1/19/13

This content uses referral links. Read our disclosure policy for more info.

This deal has expired and may no longer be valid.

If you’re new to Walgreens shopping, then learn how the Balance Rewards Program works. Plus, learn how the Register Rewards program works and learn how to read this shopping list. Don’t forget that some other stores will accept Register Rewards like a manufacturer’s coupon. Also, it’s a good idea to print out Walgreens’ official coupon policy and keep it with you in case an issue comes up at checkout.

This is a starting list of deals for the week and is not a comprehensive list of every sale item and its coupons, but just the best deals (things at prices I’d actually pay). We will update this list as readers leave comments with bargains they found at their local store, we get emails with deal ideas or we read about other deals across the blogosphere. Items that are added throughout the week will be noted as NEW. Items whose final price changes as a result of a new or modified coupon scenario will be noted as UPDATED. At least once this week, we will send out a reminder to come back and check this list for the hottest new deals.

Walgreens is the one store where an advertised sale like “2/$4” usually requires you to buy two products. The first one rings at full price and the second product will ring at a lesser price to bring the total to $4, using our example. If you ever question whether you need to buy two to receive a sale price, ask the cashier to scan one item for you. If it rings at full price, then you know you need to buy two products. If it rings at the sale price, then you don’t.

Your turn: What other deals did you find this week at Walgreens?

  1. I had a lot of trouble at Walgreens today. When at the checkout I had the employee price check the Men's vitamins listed above because the signage didn't show $6.99. They rang up at $9.99 so I ran and got a different vitamin. Meanwhile, the employee said she would start ringing me up, very nice of her! BUT, since I wasn't there I didn't see that NOTHING was ringing up correctly. This was my mistake for not being there, but none the less frustrating to have to go back to correct them on what they are advertising in store. DiGiorno's rang up at 7.49 (signage was posted for 2/$10) and so I needed to go back into the store to get a price correction. They had no problem making this correction. I didn't notice until I got home that the coffeemate creamer rang up at 2/$5 for the 16 oz advertised at 2/$3. Bummer, I will have to go back there tomorrow and ask for an adjustment.This price is higher than there non sale price, very odd. Also, the women's vitamin's I grabbed had signage for 6.99 but ran up as 10.49. I am very bummed since I feel a little embarrased having to go back to get my money back. On the positive side, all of the balance rewards rang up correctly, and the employee was very kind.

    • I don't feel badly about going back for the difference. It was an error on the part of whomever programmed their computers (or in this case, whomever didn't program their computers). Everything just keeps going up but my income and I think they understand why we come back for the correct price. It's also good customer service on their part to correct it and want to correct it for other shoppers as well.

      • I try to call and talk to someone so they can correct it before someone else has trouble and then when I arrive they are uaually aware of the errors so getting the difference isn't so much of a deal. It's sad to hear you had that experience though. I imagine with flu and possible cut backs in employees or just general computer issues it can happen but frustrating /hassle to get it fixed for time and gas.

        • I have had similar issues there–they kindly corrected the mistake but it took 15 minutes (and that was only for 2 items).

  2. Buy 1Estroven PM Caplets (24 ct.) for $10, Get $10 Register Reward

    Spend $10, get $10 Register Reward

    Final price: Free after Register Reward

    There is a $2 off Estroven product in the Walgreens "Answers" book making this a 2 dollar money maker.

  3. Will you all look over this scenario and see if my math is correct:

    Nutrisse on sale this week for $

  4. Will you all see if my math for this scenario is correct:

    Nutrisse is on sale this week for $5.99 each

    Spend at least $15.00 and get 4000 points

    Buy three at $17.97

    Use 3 of the $2.00/1 qs from: http://www.coupons.com
    If you deduct the 4000 points as money saved to spend later….

    $2.66 each

  5. FYI…The Cottonelle coupon is in the Smart Source ad, not the Red Plum.

  6. Where do you find this book?

  7. **NEW** Quaker Granola Bar (1.23 oz.) for 2/$1 (or $0.59 each)

    $1/2 Quaker Products from January All You magazine

    $1/2 Quaker Products printable

    Final price: Two free after coupon

    The printable coupon is no longer available.

    • Sue – After you enter your e-mail address they will send you three codes. When you receive them, click on the link in the e-mail to play. Everyone who plays the game receives the $1/2 printable after that. It's a lot of hoops to jump through for a coupon, but it's possible.

  8. The link for the Wrigley Gum is not working.

  9. There is a coupon in Walgreens ad for 25.00 gift card with transferred prescription. I noticed that it has a long expiration date (May 2013). I plan to save this "just in case".

  10. Be aware that the has been a glitch lately in the computer system–you might also notice that they haven't been able to print all their signage too. Please be patient with your cashier as some newer cashiers will be less quick :)

    And of course, don't be embarrassed to get the price fixed; keep in mind if the prices didn't come up for you, you're not the only one and if so there were others that also got adjustments (you're in good company!) :)

  11. These are usually either in the Pharmacy waiting area or in clear holders in the pharmacy-type items aisles.
