What’s FREE (or almost free) at Walgreens 8/26-9/1


Here is our list of Walgreens deals that are free or nearly free in the weekly ad starting 8/26. If you want to check out the full weekly ad and coupon matchups for the week of 8/26-9/1 at Walgreens, go here. If you are shopping later in the week, I strongly advise that you check out our Walgreens Category to see if there’s anything new since we published the weekly ad matchups and this list.

Don’t forget that Walgreens now allows you to cash in points on smaller totals. See the breakdown below. Also, DO NOT redeem points if you plan on earning points on a transaction. If you do that, you will not earn the new points – with some exceptions. (If the deal requires you to buy a certain number of an item *like “Buy Two, Get 500 Points”, you can still redeem points and earn the new points. DO NOT redeem points when doing a deal that requires a certain dollar amount like “Buy $15 of Aveeno, Get 5000 Points.”)

1,000 Points = $1
2,000 Points = $2
3,000 Points = $3
5,000 Points = $5
10,000 Points = $10
18,000 Points = $20
30,000 Points = $35
40,000 Points = $50

Also, if you haven’t already done so, make sure you join the Walgreens Beauty Enthusiast Club. By doing this, you will earn 5000 Balance Rewards points (value $5-$6.25) for every $50 of qualifying items you purchase. This is in addition to the points listed in the ad. You don’t have to earn the 5000 points in a single trip; credit towards the $50 threshold is accumulated as you shop over multiple trips. Once you hit the $50 mark, you will get the 5000 points. I don’t think there is any limit on the number of points you can earn with the program.

  1. The Ibotta Crest mouthwash is one Liter only. Wonder if that matches up to the size on sale??

  2. Ibotta does not match the mouthwash nor the toothbrush. So just think about that as you try to do this deal. Still a good buy though.

  3. The Pampers deal turned out to be regional. I did the deal and did not receive my points. No mention of the points on my ad and I dint check before going? I am in NJ

  4. The Pampers deal seems to be regional. No mention of the points in the ad in NJ. I found out the hard way, dint look at my ad before I left ?

    • Go to the Walgreens website and search for Pampers. When I searched and looked at the Swaddlers size 3, I clearly saw that the diapers are part of a “Buy $20 or more participating Pampers, Tide and Downy Products and receive 5000 Pts” promotion. If you see that same promotion in the online ad for your zip code, then you are entitled to the 5,000 points (will need to call customer service to get them).

      The other 5,000 points are awarded when you use an in-ad coupon (also available to clip to card) to get 5,000 points when you spend $25 (not product-specific).
