Walgreens Ad 8/16: Best Sales & Deals

Here are my picks for the best deals in the Walgreens ad for August 16 - 22, 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 back to school deals in the 8/16 Walgreens ad


  • Paper Mate Mechanical Pencils -- on sale for 49 cents per bag.  Buy five bags for a pre-coupon price of $2.45, then use four 55 cents off coupons from the 7/26 Smartsource insert.  That takes $2.20 off your total, which means you'll pay just a quarter for all five bags.  That's just five cents per bag!  NOTE: Walgreens will not adjust down coupons, which is why I don't recommend using more than four coupons on this deal.  If you do try to use five coupons, keep in mind that your cashier may reject the fifth one if it beeps.
  • Paper Mate Write Bros Pens -- on sale for 39 cents per bag.  Buy five bags for a pre-coupon price of $1.95, then use three 55 cents off coupons from the 7/26 Smartsource insert.  That takes $1.65 off your total, which means you'll pay 30 cents for all five bags.  So your final price is just 6 cents per bag!

  • Mini Highlighters -- on sale for 14 cents each.
