Walgreens Ad 8/2: Best Sales & Deals

Here are my picks for the best deals in the Walgreens ad for August 2 - 8, 2015!  

For Texas shoppers, remember that our Tax Free Weekend for back to school deals actually starts on Friday, August 7.  Happy dance!  

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 back to school deals in the 8/2 Walgreens ad

  • Paper Mate Eagle Pens -- 10-count bags on sale for 29 cents each.  Buy two bags for 58 cents, then use the 55 cents off coupon from the 7/26 Smartsource insert.  Your bags will be two for three cents!  NOTE: Walgreens doesn't allow overage per their corporate coupon policy and/or may actually reject the coupon if you just buy a single bag, so that's why I recommend buying two.
  • Wexford Mini Highlighters or Paper Folders -- on sale for 14 cents each with in-ad coupon.
  • Sharpie Highlighters -- 4-count packs on sale for 99 cents each with in-ad coupon.  Stack the 75 cents off coupon from the 7/26 Smartsource insert and pay 24 cents for yours!
