We have a HOT Walgreens scenario deal for ya!
Through October 16th, Walgreens is offering some HOT deals on personal care products, groceries, and even Halloween candy!
We cooked up a moneymaker scenario and even tested it, and while things didn’t go exactly to plan, we’re excited to share with you what we grabbed so that you can grab it too! When placing an online order, keep in mind that your stores inventory may not be accurate, some items may be out of stock (happened to us too!) so you’ll want to watch for any emails about your order.
The scenario below has one Register Reward offer and we have heard from some readers that not everyone receives these when doing an online pickup order. Our best tips are to make sure that you head in-store, don’t do curbside pickup, and ask for it if it prints out. We’ve always received them automatically but it can definitely vary! Also, Register Rewards do NOT show during checkout when ordering online.
Plus, make sure to check your account for a “Booster” coupon that offers $5 in Walgreens Cash Rewards when you spend $20! Your offer may vary a little but they are usually close to the same amount for everyone. You’ll want to make sure you have that clipped before you order so you can score those extra savings!
AND, through October 14th, you can score 10% off select regular & sale-priced items when you use promo code QUICK10 at checkout. If you’re making your first ever online order, you can save 25% off orders of $20+ with promo code DIGITAL20.
Hip Tip: It’s easiest to clip the coupons by heading to the item you’re going to purchase and clipping it right on the product page! You can also clip coupons during checkout and it will even let you know if there’s a coupon available!
Here’s a few of the offers we grabbed…
- Buy 2 select Crest, Oral-B, or Kotex products, Get $4 Walgreens Cash
- Buy 2 select Colgate Toothpastes, Get a $5 Register Reward
- Buy one Prego Pasta Sauce, Get One Free
This is the big scenario we tried to order…

Buy 1 Oral-B Deep Clean Toothbrush 2-Pack $3 (regularly $3.49)

Buy 1 Colgate Cavity Protection Toothpaste $1.79
Buy 2 Prego Pasta Sauces $2.49 each

Final cost FREE + $3.64 moneymaker for 11 items!
Our order didn’t go quite as planned…
Our store didn’t have enough inventory to fill our entire order so we missed out on the Oral-B Toothbrush and one of the U by Kotex pads. However, since the Crest and U by Kotex were in the same offer, we still scored $4 in Walgreens Cash for buying those two items and our order still reached the threshold for the Booster coupon!
We ended up spending $10.72 before tax and getting back $9 Walgreens Cash, a $5 Register Reward, and $1 on Ibotta for a final cost of FREE + $4.28 Money Maker!
We still scored some awesome deals and while it’s a bummer to miss out on more freebies, there are always more great offers to score. Plus, who can complain when their order includes two free bags of Reese’s? Not me!
Some behind the scenes fun – I’m currently 8.5 months pregnant and my husband has been making jokes about me buying Prego pasta sauce! He’s working on his Dad jokes for sure! 😂
