Walgreens Ad 8/23: Best Sales & Deals

Here are my picks for the best deals in the Walgreens ad for August 23 - 29, 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 8/23 Walgreens ad


  • Paper Mate Mechanical Pencils -- 5-count packs on sale for 49 cents each.  Buy four for a pre-coupon price of $1.96, then use three 55 cents off coupons from the 7/26 Smartsource insert.  Your price drops to 31 cents for all four packs, or just 8 cents per pack!  NOTE: Walgreens will not adjust down coupons, which is why I don't recommend using more than three coupons on this deal.  If you do try to use four coupons, keep in mind that your cashier may reject the fourth one if it beeps.
  • Wexford 2-Pocket Paper Folders -- on sale for 14 cents each with in-ad coupon.
  • Wexford Wooden Rulers -- also on sale for 14 cents apiece with in-ad coupon.
  • Wexford #2 Pencils -- on sale for 49 cents per pack with in-ad coupon.

  • Backpacks priced at $10.99 or more -- on BOGO sale.  So you could snag two for as little as $10.99, which works out to $5.50 apiece!
