Lets Start Saving Money A Walgreens
Shopping at Walgreens you will want to be familiar with their Register Reward program as well as the Balance Rewards program that they offer and also know the coupon policy.
Balance Rewards Program
At Walgreens, you would need to make sure you are signed up for there card. You can sign up in-store or online for the card. When you are in store after signing up you can either use the card for them to scan it or type in your phone number. With the card or the phone number, you will be able to get the items for the sales price.
Earning Points Each week Walgreens offer points for a select item in the weekly ads. The products will vary from week to week. They also offer some points on items that run monthly you will find them listed in the stores on the signs.
When making a purchase you can redeem points if you would like or you can save your point. If you decide to save your points then you will accumulate more points so that when you redeem them it will be more points. 1,000 points are equal to $1.00 until you reach 18,000 points. Once you reach 18,000 points the value will increase so it would be equal to $20. If you are redeeming 5,000 points then that’s redeeming $5.00. You can not redeem points and receive points in the same transaction.
For example, if you spend $30 and you will receive 10,000 points back it is not a good an idea to use points to pay if you want to receive the 10,000 points. But you can also redeem points on a transaction where you will earn Register Reward Points it will not impact your Register Rewards and vice versa.
Manufacturer’s coupons will not impact you earning points. So for example, if an offer is to spend $15 and earn 3,000 points on any Old Spice purchase you will need to hit the $15 before manufacturer’s coupons. Walgreens coupons, however, do impact your amount. So you would need to reach $15 BEFORE manufacturer’s coupons but AFTER Walgreens coupons. This also applies to all the special bonus offers like earn $5 in points when you spend $25 in store.
The register reward deals will vary from week to week while others can last only for a few days and then there are other deals that last for an entire month.
- How long are Register Rewards valid?
Register Rewards vary they can be for a week or up to two weeks. That is why I plan my shopping trips and roll the register rewards over into another transaction. I normally take my Register Rewards from one transaction and use them in another transaction that gives me back Register Rewards.
- Can I use a Register Reward I received from one item to buy another of the same item?
You can but another Register Reward will not print. Remember you can use a Register Reward and Walgreens Coupon on the same item in one transaction.
- What are fillers?
Fillers are inexpensive items that you buy so you can use more Register Rewards to meet the limit on the register rewards or to satisfy the spend $25 to get the bonus points. So if I have several items that I am buying and you want to use manufacturer coupons for the items you will need to pick up a few filler items to make sure you reach the limit.
Walgreens Coupon Book
Walgreens has its own coupon books called the Monthly Savings Book and sometimes they also have pharmacy coupon books. They work very similar to the in-ad coupons. There are restrictions on the number of items that can be purchased with the coupon, but if you split the purchases up into different transactions, go on a different day, or go to a different Walgreens store you can use them multiple times.
Be sure to check out the link for the Walgreens Deals . I will update it each week with the top deals to do. Where you will spend no more than $10 out of pocket.
