With more than 9,000 stores nationwide, Walgreens is one of the best-known pharmacy and convenience store chains in the United States.
Despite its popularity, many people are unaware of how to save money at Walgreens.
These shopping tips can make every Walgreens run cheaper, more convenient, and even save you a few trips to the store in addition to cash.
1. Join myWalgreens
Walgreens offers a free customer loyalty program, myWalgreens, that gives shoppers access to store-wide discounts.
myWalgreens members receive 1% cash rewards on every purchase and 5% on Walgreens branded products.
Plus, members get access to special prices on all items, so you save money when you shop as usual.
The program also offers same-day pickup and delivery within half an hour or an hour after you place your order.
Check out all the benefits of myWalgreens on the company page.
2. Download the Walgreens app
Like joining the loyalty program, downloading the Walgreens app is free, hassle-free and opens the door to tons of discounts.
The app has hundreds of digital coupons available with one swipe and you can redeem them at checkout on your phone.
You can also quickly check what’s in stock at your local Walgreens and compare prices between brands without spending additional time in the store.
The app also makes the pharmacy more convenient.
You can scan prescriptions for quick refills and chat with pharmacists anytime through the app.
3. Set up recurring purchases
To ensure you’re always stocked with essentials without having to keep visiting the store, Walgreens offers automatic reordering of certain products.
You can set a delivery schedule for groceries, personal care products, cleaning supplies, and more.
By setting up recurring deliveries, you save 10% on each item and the schedule is as flexible as you need it.
You can skip or cancel pre-scheduled purchases if needed, and Walgreens offers free delivery after your first delivery.
4. Sign up for prescription savings
The Walgreens Prescription Savings Club offers up to 80% off more than 8,000 prescription drugs.
It costs $20 a year for individuals to join the club and $35 for families, but membership can pay for itself with one purchase.
If you don’t have insurance or have a high deductible, this program can save you hundreds.
Walgreens has a list of discounted medications, but you should contact your pharmacist directly to inquire about specific medications.
The savings also extend to pet prescriptions, as long as the drug is available at a typical pharmacy.
You also get a 20% discount on most vaccinations with a savings club card.
