Walgreens Ad 1/11: Best Sales & Deals

Here are my picks for the best deals in the Walgreens ad for January 11 - 17, 2015.

If you're new to shopping at Walgreens, be sure to check out my how-to guide to get yourself up to speed.  Walgreens is slightly quirky with their policies, so you'll want to be fully prepped before you hit the store.

And don't forget that you can buy discounted Walgreens gift cards at Raise.com right now for even more savings!


Best deals in the 1/11 Walgreens ad


  • Walgreens Points Booster Coupons -- Score an additional 5000 Balance Reward points (like $5 in buying power) when you spend $30 with this in-ad coupon January 11 through 13 only!  For this offer, you need to spend $30 AFTER any additional Walgreens coupons (they act as price reductions in the register) but BEFORE manufacturer coupons.  
  • Garnier Fructis Hair Care -- on sale 2 bottles for $6, with 3000 Balance Reward points back (like $3 in buying power) on each three you buy in the same transaction.  If you have enough coupons, I recommend buying 6 bottles for $18, and use 6 $2 off coupons from the 1/11 Red Plum insert.  You'll pay $6 out of pocket for all 6 bottles, and then you'll receive 6000 Balance Reward points back (so $6 in buying power.)  So all six will be free!
  • Russell Stover's Valentine's Day Candy or Chocolate -- on sale for 39 cents each with in-ad coupon.
  • Dawn Hand Renewal Dishwashing Liquid -- on sale for 99 cents per bottle.  Use the 50 cents off coupon from the 12/28 P&G insert, and get yours for 49 cents instead.
  • Progresso Soup -- on sale 4 cans for $5, with 1000 Balance Reward points (like $1 in buying power) when you buy four in the same transaction.  So buy four, then use two 50 cents off 2 coupons from the 1/4 Smartsource inserts.  You'll pay $4 out of pocket, then you'll have your 1000 Balance Reward points.  Next, submit for this $1 off 4 SavingStar rebate.  So your final price after discounts is 4 for $2, or 50 cents per can!
  • Crest Pro-Health Toothpaste or Rinse -- on sale 4 for $12, with $6 back in Register Rewards.  Use two $1.50 off 2 coupons from the 12/28 P&G insert, and pay $9 out of pocket.  After your $6 in Register Rewards, your final price is $3 for 4, or 75 cents each!
  • Sunny Smile Paper Plates -- 72-count packs on sale for 99 cents each.
  • Mitchum or Lady Mitchum Deodorant -- on sale for $2.99 each.  If you receive the $2 off coupon in your 1/11 Smartsource insert (this coupon may be regional, so I don't know if everyone will get it) your new price falls to 99 cents.
  • Glade Jar Candles and Wax Melts -- on sale 2 for $7, with $1 back in Register Rewards.  Buy one of each, then use the $2 off 2 coupon from the 1/4 Smartsource.  You'll pay $5 out of pocket for both, and then you'll receive your $1 in Register Rewards for next time.  So that's like 2 for $4.  Next, submit for two $1 Ibotta rebates (one for the candle, and one for the wax melts.)  Your final price drops to $2 for both, or a dollar apiece!
  • 7UP, A&W, Sunkist, or Canada Dry -- on sale for $1 per 2-liter bottle.
  • Kellogg's Cereal -- on sale for $1.99 per box.  Buy two and use the $1 off 2 coupon from the 12/7 Red Plum insert.  Your new price drops to $1.49 per box.
  • Nice! Pure Cane Sugar -- 4 lb bags on sale for $1.99 with in-ad coupon.
  • Tampax Pearl or Radiant Tampons -- on sale 3 boxes for $12, with 2000 Balance Reward points back for each three boxes you buy in the same transaction.  Use three $1 off coupons from the 12/28 P&G insert.  You'll pay $9 out of pocket, and then you'll receive your 2000 points (like $2 in buying power.)  That's a final price of $7 for all three boxes, or $2.34 each!
  • Hershey's Chocolate Spreads -- on sale for $3.49 per jar, with 1000 Balance Reward points back towards a future purchase (like $1 in buying power.)  Use the free candy bar coupon with Hershey's Spreads purchase arriving in the 1/11 Smartsource insert.  After coupon and points, your final price drops to $2.49 for both items!
  • Revitalens Contact Solution -- on sale 2 10 oz boxes for $12, with 3000 Balance Reward points back when you buy two boxes in the same transaction.  So buy two and use two $2 off coupons from the 12/7 Smartsource inserts (expire 1/12.)  You'll pay $8 out of pocket, then you'll receive your 3000 pints (like $3 in buyin power.)  So that's a final price of 2 for $5, or $2.50 per box!
  • Scott Naturals Paper Towels -- 6-count packs on sale for $3.99.  We have a 75 cents off coupon arriving in the 1/11 Smartsource insert that will knock your price down to $3.24.  
  • Kleenex Bundle Pack -- 4-count packs on sale for $3.99.  We have a 50 cents off coupon also arriving in the 1/11 Smartsource that will drop your price down to $3.49.

DEAL SCENARIO: We also have a $5 off $30 SavingStar rebate good on Scott, Cottonelle, and Kleenex products.  So if you have enough coupons, try this following scenario:
  • Buy four packs of Scott Naturals and four Kleenex Bundles for a pre-coupon price of $31.92.  Use four 75 cents off coupons from the 1/11 Smartsource insert, three 50 cents off coupons from the 1/11 Smartsource, and the in-ad Walgreens Points Booster coupon.  Pay $28.17 out of pocket, and receive 5000 Balance Reward points back (like $5 in buying power.)  So that's like $23.17.  Next, submit for your $5 off $30 SavingStar rebate.  Your final price for all 8 items after all discounts is just $18.17.  That works out to $2.27 per item -- so 57 cents per box of Kleenex, and just 38 cents per roll of paper towels!
  • Excedrin -- on sale 2 100-count boxes for $20, with 10000 Balance Reward points back for each two boxes you buy in the same transaction.  So use two $1.50 off coupons from the 1/11 Smartsource inserts, and pay $17 out of pocket, then get your $10 back in points.  That means your final price is $7 for two boxes, or $3.50 each!
  • Gone Girl -- on sale for $15.99 per DVD beginning Tuesday, January 13.
  • Huggies Big Pak -- on sale for $21.99 each.  Stack this $3 off coupon (sort by Baby & Toddler to find it fast) with the $3 Walgreens coupon available in the January coupon book and get yours for $15.99 instead.
DEAL SCENARIO:  Really want to stock up on Huggies diapers?
  • Between January 11 - 13, buy two Big Paks for a pre-coupon price of $43.98, along with two small filler items.  Give the Points Booster, the $3 Walgreens coupon from the January coupon book (will take a total of $6 off) and two $3 off coupons.  You'll pay $31.98 out of pocket (plus the cost of your two small fillers) and then you'll receive your 5000 Balance Rewards points.  So that's a final price of $26.98 for both after all discounts -- or $13.49 per Big Pak!
