Walgreens Ad 5/10: Best Sales & Deals

Here are my picks for the best deals in the Walgreens ad for May 10 - 16, 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 right now for even more savings!

Best deals in the 5/10 Walgreens ad

  • Garnier Fructis Shampoo, Conditioner or Treatment -- on sale 2 for $6.  Stack the $2 off 2 Walgreens store coupon from the May 2015 coupon book with two $2 off coupons from the 4/26 Red Plum insert.  Both bottles will be free!
  • Walgreens Points Booster -- Between Sunday, May 10 and Tuesday, May 12, you can get an additional 5000 Balance Rewards points (like $5 in buying power) when you spend $30 or more before manufacturer coupons but after Walgreens store coupons.  You'll also need to clip the coupon, which will be in your weekly ad available either in the store or in your Sunday paper.  I'll put together a deal scenario for you at the bottom of the post!
  • Snickers Candy Bars -- on sale for 59 cents each.  Buy two for a pre-coupon price of $1.18, then use this BOGO coupon (may not be available on smartphones.)  Your price drops to 59 cents for both bars, or 30 cents each!
  • Sharpies -- on sale for 39 cents each with in-ad coupon.
  • Puffs Facial Tissues -- on sale for 99 cents per box.  Buy three and use the $1.50 off 3 coupon from the 5/3 P&G insert.  Your price falls to just 49 cents per box.  Great price for this brand!
  • Colgate Total Advanced Mouthwash -- 16.9 oz bottles on sale for $3.99, with $2.50 back in Register Rewards.  Use the $1 off coupon from the 5/3 Smartsource insert.  You'll pay $2.99 out of pocket, and then you'll get the $2.50 back in Register Rewards.  That's a final price of just 49 cents!
  • Butterball Turkey Bacon -- on sale for $1.29 per pack.  Use this 75 cents off coupon and get yours for just 54 cents.
  • Kraft Mac & Cheese -- on sale for 79 cents per blue box with in-ad coupon.
  • Xtra Liquid Laundry Detergent -- on sale two bottles for $3.  Use the $1 off 2 coupon from the 5/10 Smartsource insert, and drop your price down to a buck per bottle!
  • Nice! One Dozen Eggs -- on sale for $1.29 each.
  • Mitchum or Lady Mitchum Deodorant -- on sale for $2.99 each.  Use the $1 off coupon from the 5/10 Smartsource insert and pay $1.99 instead.
  • Tide Simply Clean & Fresh Laundry Detergent -- 25-load bottles on sale for $2.99.  Use the 50 cents off coupon arriving in the 5/10 Red Plum insert, and get yours for just $2.49 instead.  That works out to a dime per load, which is a terrific price for Tide.
  • Opti-Free or Clear Care Solution -- on sale for $8.99 per bottle, with 1000 Balance Reward points back when you buy two in the same transaction (like $1 in buying power.)  Buy two for a pre-coupon price of $17.98, and use two $5 off coupons from the 5/10 Smartsource inserts.  You'll pay $7.98 out of pocket, and then you'll earn your 1000 points towards a future purchase.  So that's like $6.98 for both, or $3.49 each per box!
  • Starbucks Bottled Frappuccinos -- 4-count packs on sale for $4.99.  Use the $1 off Walgreens coupon from the May coupon book and get yours for $3.99 instead.
  • Arm & Hammer Spinbrush Adult Manual Toothbrushes -- on BOGO sale, no prices listed in ad.  Use the 75 cents off coupon from the 5/10 Smartsource insert to drop your price even further.
  • Almay Cosmetics -- on sale for 40% off, no prices listed in ad.  Use the coupons for a free container of Almay Makeup Remover with cosmetic purchase from the 5/3 Smartsource insert for additional savings!
Walgreens Points Booster Scenario
  • Buy four bottles of Garnier hair care, two boxes of Opti-Free or Clear Care solution, two Snickers bars, and three packs of Butterball Turkey Bacon.
  • All 11 items will be a pre-coupon total of $35.03.
  • Give the Points Booster coupon, plus your $2 off 2 Walgreens coupon from the May 2015 coupon book (will take $4 off your purchase.)
  • That drops you down to $31.03.
  • Next, give two $5 off Opti-Free or Clear Care coupons from the 5/10 Smartsource inserts, plus one BOGO Snickers coupon and three 75 cents off Butterball coupons (available to print above.)
  • Those six coupons will take another $12.84 off your total.
  • So you'll pay $18.19 out of pocket for all 11 items, plus you'll receive 6000 Balance Reward points towards a future purchase (like $6 in buying power.)
  • That means your final price is like $12.19 for everything, or just $1.11 each!
