As of May 6, 2019, Walgreens has changed its popular Balance Rewards again, namely customers can now redeem a maximum of 50,000 points in a single transaction — see below. With a Walgreens seemingly on every other corner, finding bargains and deals is easier (and more convenient) than you might think at the ubiquitous drugstore.
If you know how to shop its aisles smartly, Walgreens can be a source for many low-cost household essentials. Navigating the ins and outs of bargain hunting the chain can be tricky. (In our opinion, Walgreens has one of the most confusing coupon policies out there, especially with its Register Rewards program. We’re die-hard “cheapskates” and we still get tripped up.)
Our guide breaks it down for novices and experts alike. With some patience, smart shoppers should be able to “nurse” their need for saving money with these tips and tricks. [Read more…] about How To Get The Best Deals at Walgreens
