I’m lovin’ the Walgreens deals I was able to grab this week, so I had to share…

Through September 29th, Walgreens is offering a Free $10 Walgreens Gift Card when you purchase two $25 Hulu, Spa Week, The Children’s Place or Kohl’s Gift Cards. Keep in mind that this offer is valid in-store only.

If you shop at any of these stores often (Hello, Kohl’s! 🙌), this deal is a no brainer!

I headed to Walgreens yesterday and took advantage of this gift card promo, then rolled my free $10 Walgreens gift card onto a second transaction to score FREE Halloween candy and laundry detergent!

Here’s exactly what I did (and you can do this, too!)…

Transaction #1

Buy two $25 Kohl’s Gift Cards
Buy $10 Walgreens Gift Card – will be free at checkout after you enter your phone number associated with your Balance Rewards account
Final cost $50 for $60 worth of gift cards!

Transaction #2:

Buy ONE all Laundry Detergent $2.99
Use the $1/1 all Laundry Product (excludes trial and travel sizes) coupon found here, or the digital coupon found here or in the 9/23 RMN (exp 10/27)
Final cost $1.99!

Buy THREE Nestlé Butterfinger Fun Size Candy 10.5 or 11.5 oz $1.99 each
Total = $5.97
Use the $2/3 Nestlé Fun Size or Minis Candy Bags 10.5 to 30 oz digital coupon, available to clip to your balance rewards card here (one time use, exp 10/31)
Final cost $3.97 total – $1.32 each!

Buy FOUR Snickers Bars 2/$1
Total = $2
Use two $0.50/2 any Snickers Candy Bars 1.41 to 1.86 oz coupons found here
Final cost $1 total – just 25¢ each!

Buy TWO Airhead Xtremes Bites 9 oz 2/$4
Use the $1/2 Airhead Xtremes Bites 9 oz Walgreens Store coupon found in the September Savings Booklet, available to digitally clip to your balance rewards card here (or pick up free booklet in store)
Final cost $3 total – $1.50 each!

Total for all TEN items = $9.96 (+ tax)
Use the FREE $10 Walgreens gift card earned from 1st transaction

Final cost FREE!

    Question- Can you pay on your Kohl’s charge with the gift cards?

    • Jodie

      I am pretty certain you can no longer use gift cards to make payment on your Kohl’s charge.

    • Nicole e

      No you cannot

  2. Kristi s.

    With the hulu gift cards can you pay your monthly fee? Its something I pay anyways.

    • kzertuche

      If Hulu works the same as Netflix for payment then yes. We do it all the time. You just go into your account and load the gift cards. Then the monthly payments will come off your “account balance” (which is the credit from the gift card) first. Then it will just revert back to charging your credit card when it is depleted. iTunes works the same way. HTH!

  3. Linda

    can you do this deal more than once- purchase the kohl’s gift card and receive the walgreens card free?

    • Laureen Knowles


  4. Carrie

    Can you use points to buy gift cards?

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      According to Walgreen’s policy you can’t use points to purchase gift cards! Hope that helps!

  5. K

    Do we need to bring the Walgreens gift card to the register and tell the cashier to put the $10 on it or will it prompt on their register like the $5 target ones do? Thanks!

    • Laureen Knowles

      Bring it to the register and tell them to pu5 $10 on it

  6. Julie

    Can I use a giftcard to pay when I checkout online at Kohls but still get my cardholder discount/free shipping? I am a cardholder, but wouldn’t be using my card to pay – does that make sense?

    • Erin

      Julie – No, you have to pay at least part of your balance with your Kohls credit card in order to get the cardholder discounts/free shipping. I usually just add something small and inexpensive from the clearance section to get my total above the gift card amount,, then pay the remaining balance with my Kohls credit card to get the free shipping.

    • Trish

      Yes Julie…I have done this often. I have never had a problem…in fact…it was first suggested to me by the gal at Kohl’s customer services!

    • Michele B.

      Yes I have used both promos and paid the full balance with a gift card no problem.

  7. Rose

    Is this deal local? I don’t see it on our weekly ad in CA.

    • candee

      yeah wasn’t in the ad here in nc and the clerk looked at me like I was crazy.

    • Amy Jordan

      I think this is a regional deal. Not available at my stores in VA. I wonder where this deal is working.

  8. candee

    I thought it would prompt the cashier to give me the gift card like target and like I said he was confused so I guess I bought $50 of giftcards but no free walgreens card. Any suggestions?

    • laurie kerze

      Call walgreens customer service, they’ll straighten it out.


    The Red Plum coupons that are linked from your deals NEVER 🙁 work for me. The ones I want are just not there. I try a bunch of different zip codes and nothing. Different browsers and nothing. Different computers and nothing. Harumpf.

    • Jennifer (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I’m really sorry to hear about your experience with the Red Plum coupons, LEMADU. The All laundry detergent coupon listed in that post is already gone. I updated the post.

      • LEMADU

        Maybe I’m always too late. Thanks

  10. Maria

    Well that kinda stinks….I went into Walgreens last night to get this gift card promotion and it didn’t work. Now I’m stuck with $60 worth of gift cards I wouldn’t have otherwise gotten. 🙁
    Just got off phone with Walgreens and they offered to give me $10 in bonus reward points to use at the store to remedy the situation.
    Walgreens rocks!
