Walgreens: Buy 3 Almay Products & Possibly Score a FREE Cosmetic Bag (+ Great Deal Scenarios!)

10:05 PM MST
The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Through March 29th, when you purchase at least 3 Almay products at participating Walgreens locations in the same transaction, you may score a printout with an 8-digit unique promo code that will get you a FREE Almay Cosmetic bag! Just go here to redeem your bag (after you have scored your code).

PLUS – as I mentioned here, there are some great deals to be had on Almay cosmetics at Walgreens this week with the *HOT* $5/2 Almay Cosmetic Products coupon that is available on!

Here are a couple deal ideas….

Almay Foundation, Primer, Concealer, Blush, Powder and Eye Cosmetics or Makeup Removers buy 1 get 1 50% off
Deal Scenario #1:
Buy 4 Almay Shadow Softies $4.99 each
Minus the buy 1 get 1 50% off sale = $14.98
Use the $5/2 Almay Cosmetic Products coupon found here
Plus, use the $2/1 Almay cosmetics or makeup removers Walgreens coupon in March Coupon Booklet
(will deduct $8)
Final cost just $1.98 total, ONLY $0.50 per eye shadow + a possible FREE cosmetic bag code!

*NOTE: I know I did mention here that you can score FREE products by using two of the $5/2 coupons. However, many of you are having issues with coupon beepage due to the overage, so if you don’t want to deal with the hassle of your coupons beeping, you may want to instead take advantage of the deal above.
Deal Scenario #2:

Buy 2 Almay One Coat Nourishing Thickening Mascara $7.79 each
Buy 2 Almay make-up removers $5.99 each
Minus the buy 1 Get 1 50% off sale = $20.68 for all 4 products
Use two $5/2 Almay Cosmetic Products coupon found here
Plus, use the $2/1 Almay cosmetics or makeup removers Walgreens coupon in March Coupon Booklet
(will deduct $8)
Final cost $2.68 total, just $0.67 per item + a possible FREE cosmetic bag code!

Has anyone else scored a unique code?

(Thanks, Alison!)

    I just want to thank you all for everything you guys do!!!! this website is amazing and I recommend it to all my friends. :)

  • Sue says:

    Print another coupon with this one otherwise there is an ink wasting ad with the single coupon.

  • brandice says:

    Has anyone tried this in Atlanta/Decatur Ga

  • Pat says:

    I have a question: last night I tried to do the Almay deal you mentioned previously and I was having issues because the manager did not want to take both the manufacturer coupon and the coupons from the Walgreens coupon booklet. So can I use both together, and what does the not valid with any other offer mean that prints on all the coupons in the book…?

    • Jennifer says:

      Hi Pat…I think the manager is wrong….Walgreens accepts one manufacturer and one store coupon per item….the Walgreens coupon booklet is a store coupon book….so he should have accepted both…and I think the not valid part in the book refers to no using with other store coupons for the same item…you can try another store or try calling corporate….that way corporate can teach that manager how their coupon policy works….good luck!…

      • pat says:

        Thanks for the advice and clarifications! :) I think I’ll try my luck at another Walgreens.

        • Amber Sikovsek says:

          My walgreens took 2 Manu and used the one in the book no problem. They just have to override the amount of the Manu ones so there is no overage.

  • gail says:

    If I calculated correct, purchase 6 of the eye shadows and use two $5/2 coupons and the Walgreens coupon (will deduct $12.00). Final total will be 47 cents, less than 8 cents each. On my way to Walgreens to see what happens.

  • mel says:

    The problem with the coupon is that its coded incorrectly, so it’s going to beep as item not found no matter what you buy.

    • Pam says:

      yeah, the same thing happened to me–it said item doesn’t match or something like that when I bought some of the eye makeup removers.

  • Alison says:

    Brandice – I did this deal yesterday in the Dunwoody area & was the one that told Collin about it. Just make sure you give the cashier the manufacture coupons first and then the Walgreen’s. :) I called a manager to do my transaction so that might help too!

  • Ally says:

    Does anyone know if you need (4)$2/1 wags coupons or just one for this deal?

  • Christy says:

    The eyeshadows deal worked for me, the nice manager adjusted it down to free for me :) also helped I went to an obscure location where not a lot of couponing takes place :)

  • jennifer says:

    My Walgreens does not sell Almay!? and it’s in their coupon book, I’m so bummed. They have an entire wall dedicated to cosmetics, except for Almay. Gonna save my coupons for hopefully a great deal somewhere else

    • Meli says:

      Out of the 4 walgreens in my area, only 1 sells almay! Cvs has a deal this week on Almay, I believe it’s spend $10 get $4 ecb and everything is reg price. Next week only the I intense shadow, liners or mascara will be on sale $5.99 and you get $6 ecb wyb 2.

  • annie says:

    Can I do mascara and shadow softies deal together.thanks

  • Adyl says:

    Just came back from wag, tried to do the same deal with eye shadows, but without success. Coupon beeped and they don’t want to adjust it. I agree Walgreens employees people who care less about customer service and not interested in their real store policies!

  • jennifer says:

    Thanks Meli for mentioning CVS, I’ll try that

  • Brenda says:

    Has anyone tried this mascara? Is it any good?

    • Serena says:

      I have tried the lengthening and it’s pretty good. Yes, just bought two mascara a and two softies and two coupons, etc. manager put them in. Great deal!

  • Amber Sikovsek says:

    Just did this deal, my walgreens 4 eyeshadows, took the 2 almay $5/2 and the wags march coupon, she just had to adjust the amount of the coupons I printed so there wasn’t an overage.

  • Keli says:

    How do you know if your state is participating in the FREE Almay cosmetic bag? I went to Walgreens and bought more than 3 almay products and I didn’t get a code? Does that mean that my area (Indiana) isn’t included??

  • Linda says:

    I tried 3 transactions with different products and they all beeped. I did use the booklet coupons first so maybe that was the problem. That was so much time wasted I hate to go back, will try CVS because they are much more coupon friendly.

    • mel says:

      it had nothing to do with using the coupon booklet first, the almay printable was coded incorrectly. They pulled it from to get it fixed.

  • Lucy says:

    I went to my local Walgreens and purchased 4 Almay eyeshadow softies and received the buy one get one 50% off and got the $2 off coupons for each item but would not honor the $5/2 Almay Manufacture coupon. I went to another Walgreens same thing, so disappointed, not sure if I should return the eye shadows all together.

  • Kelsey says:

    It worked for me here in Northeast Ohio!! I got 4 of the makeup remover wipes for free! Thank you, Collin! :)

  • ashley m says:

    I can’t find the coupon! Is it gone already?

  • Diana says:

    Oh darn! Its gone! I only got to print 1. Oh well. Im not even going to waste my time at walgreens. Cvs will be much better. Softies are $4.99. Buy 2 use $5mq and $4 off any almay from coupon machine. Pay $1 and get $4ecb! Perfect.

  • Keyko says:

    Sad face. I went to get some Almay mascara with the BOGO 50% off plus the $5 off 2 plus the Walgreens $2 coupon. The manager wouldn’t let me use both coupons…

  • says:

    what zip code did you use for the Almay Coupon>?

  • Jena says:

    Went to Walgreens counter to buy two mascaras & 2 eye shadows, but after scanning the booklet coupon, the store would not take my $5/2 coupon, because they said the Wal-green booklet coupon was manufacturer and that’s why it beeped. =(

  • Sarah says:

    I am starting to dislike wags!! I tried the scenario mentioned the other day before seeing all these comments. It didn’t work for me. I explained to the cashier what I thought would happen and that I’d love for her to explain to me why it wasn’t working. I told her it was not a problem at all I just wanted to understand for the future. She was so rude and kept telling me it didn’t matter what I’d read on the internet and that What I was trying was against store policy. Humph! Oh well! Hope my next deal goes better. And I just have to say I love hip2save!!

    • S says:

      Everyone that has problems with wags should email or call corporate so they can education their store employees (I did that because my closest store would not take my coupons even tho I had the store policy in front of me and corporate ended up giving me points as an apology and talked to the store’s managers)

    • Krista says:

      I have a lot of problems at Walgreens. They often give ridiculous reasons for a deal not going through. Some locations are more coupon friendly than others – I think it depends on the manager. I have been shopping more and more at CVS, and only going to Walgreens occasionally.

  • Jen says:

    If you like ibotta, check out Shopmium!!! It’s like ibotta without having a minimum to transfer!! Please use my referral code GHKEYMPL when signing up to get a free Lindt Bar also!!!! Thanks!!!

  • Chels says:

    Stopped by wags on my way home from work and picked up 4 softie eyeshadows. Used (2) $5/2 and the wags q. The first time around, the BA scanned the wags store q first and the mq wouldn’t go through, so we post voided and tried again with scanning the mq first but it still beeped so manager came over and just said to push it through since my total before the wags store q was at $16.xx and the q’s would only take $10 off. She pushed my q’s through and I grabbed a makeup remover to cover the overage. No makeup bag here in OK!

  • Wendy T says:

    ah :( My walgreen’s said I couldn’t use the $5/2 on the make up remover wipes :( . Mgr stated the verbiage is to make up only. I tried but he said no :( ah man! But loved this deal, scored free LIP GLOSS> xoxo Colin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • AR. says:

      Not according to almay’s fb reply to a post questioning what the coupon can be used on:

      “ALMAY Hi xx! The coupon is good on any Almay product, including makeup remover, but excludes trial/travel sizes. Thanks for asking! xo

  • Kim says:

    I just got back from my Walgreen’s and the manager had to push the $5/2 manufacturer coupons through cause it would beep and say it wasn’t for the products i was buying. So like someone else said on here the coupons must of been coded wrong that’s why they weren’t working for anyone. I did get the deal though…. Got 2 mascaras and 2 eyeshadow softies. Total was $20.31 before manufacturer coupons and Walgreen’s coupon. After all coupons came to $2.31 after tax. I also used point so got all 4 items for .31 cents. I am really happy with that!!! :D

  • Kathy says:

    My store would not take the $5/2…:(

  • Diana says:

    I hesitantly went to walgreens today. Bought 2 softies and kellogs drink- $1.48. Coupon beeped of course and cashier said i wasn’t buying what was pictured 👿. I said it states ANY! Manager came over and said it was fine just had to adjust $5 coupon down so i wouldn’t get overage. Total was $1.48 and they said i couldn’t use points because i needed $5 worth? Whaaat? Omg! I loathe walgreens! Whatev. Pd my $1.48 and rcvd my RR on kellogs.. T2- bought 2 packs of trolli gummi eggs for $0.50! Yay! I always have issue at walgreens but still happy with my 2 shadows, breakfast drink, and 2 bags of gummi eggs for $2 :))

  • Dawn says:

    I always have problems at Walgreens. It takes me way longer to check out than driving and getting my stuff. If the RR machine is out of ink or unplugged, then it’s something else. My transactions always have to be voided and redone. The clerk said the Almay coupon was only to be used for the pictures items. The manager came and was able to get my Almay deal done. I got 4 shadows and 2 makeup removers and I had about a $3 overage and it applied to the other stuff in my cart. I was very happy!!

  • Lori says:

    I didn’t get a code and I bought 4 two days in a row

  • Hunterwoody says:

    Just checking back in to see if anyone ever actually received this bag. I did not :(

  • Angela says:

    I was just thinking the same thing, I never received mine either.

  • Jane says:

    I got a code for the free bag and so did my friend and neither of us have received a thing! I think that’s awful and bad business practices.

  • Barb says:

    I just received my Free cosmetic bag. It came with no invoice or paperwork. I didn’t even know what it was for until I did a search on h2s because I knew I would have found the offer here (because h2s is awesome) and sure enough, the purple bag pictured above is the bag I received. It’s nothing exciting I think I’ll toss or give to kids to play with. I can’t believe it took almost 4 months, free is free though, so I shouldn’t complain.

  • Heather says:

    I got mine today, finally. I did email them a few months ago quite angrily. A few weeks later I received a package in the mail with a full size liquid eyeliner, liquid lipstick, regular lipstick and 2 nail polishes, along with a letter apologizing for the delay. They said that something happened and my name got “dropped” from the shipping list but that I would receive the bag. I was just thinking about it earlier today and I gave up on ever seeing it. Funny that it was in today’s mail. I actually liked the bag. Much bigger/nicer than what I currently use.

  • annie says:

    me too no bag as of today.. :(
