Walgreens General Shopping FAQs

What are Register Rewards? These are a “coupon” which generate at the time you checkout.  They are usually white with red trim.  They are treated like cash and can be used towards future purchases.  You will want to read more about Register Rewards as well as Bonus Points before you shop.

My store says they do not accept Internet coupons.  Is this true? Walgreens accepts various coupons, and Internet coupons are one of them, however, they will not accept printed coupons for free items.  As long as the coupon will scan, it will be accepted.  If it does not scan, they may not accept it (this can vary from store to store).

My Walgreens store says I can not use a BOGO coupon on a BOGO sale.  Is this true? You can, but you must purchase 4 total items in order to use your coupon.  You will pay for 2 and get 2 free.  See below for details.

I have never shopped here before and do not understand much about how to get the deals.  Can you help? Yes!  I have a post which explains How To Shop at Walgreens.  This will give you the information you need to get started shopping and saving money.

I want to complain about my store, who do I contact? You can call them directly at 1-800-925-4733, option 4 or you can submit feedback via email.  Remember that if you do not speak up, they will not be aware of the issue and can not do anything to resolve it.  If you contact them, it is helpful to have the store number available as well as any additional information including manager, cashier, date and time of your visit.

Bonus Points

Walgreens has a Balance Rewards card program. Points are earned on select purchases.  They are also rewarded as a bonus on select items as stated in the weekly ad.  Learn more about the Walgreens Bonus Points System.

Points are rewarded on total purchase after coupons.  This is how all rewards programs work.  If you purchase $20 in products and have $5 in coupons, you will get points only on $15.
  • Points are earned on all items purchased.
  • Points are rewarded on total purchase after store coupons.  This is how all rewards programs work.  If you purchase $20 in products and have $5 in Walgreen’s coupons, you will get points only on $15.
  • Points are rewarded on total purchase before manufacturer’s coupons.  If you purchase $20 in products and have $1 in manufacturer’s coupons, your total would be $19, but you will still earn points on your $20 purchase.
  • To earn points, the purchase must be made in a single transaction.  The totals do not tally between multiple receipts.
  • Points are rounded down.  If you spend $2.99, you will get only 20 points in your account.  So, if you are looking for points, you might find small filler items to take you over your next dollar threshold so that you get the points you are hoping for.
