Walgreens often has Register Reward Deals. When you purchase the required item(s) or spend the minimum amount, you’ll be rewarded with ExtraCare Bucks, which are like money that can only be spent at Walgreens. Register Rewards must be used in one transaction and do expire, so make sure to note the expiration date.

The trick to Walgreens is to “roll” your Register Rewards to lower the amount you spend out of pocket. For example, one week, Garnier hair care products are on sale 2 for $5 and you get $2 Register Rewards when you purchase two. With coupons, your transaction may look like this:

(1) Garnier Fructis Shampoo $2.50
(1) Garnier Fructis Conditioner $2.50

You use a (2) $1/1 Garnier Hair Care coupons.
You pay $3 and get back $2 in Register Rewards

The following week, Gillette Fusion Razors are on sale for $7.99 and you get $5 Register Reward with purchase. With coupons, your transaction may look like this:

(1) Gillette Fusion Razor $7.99

You use (1) $5/1 Gillette Fusion Razor coupon.
You use your $2 Register Rewards from the previous week.
You pay $0.99 and get back $5 Register Rewards to use on your next purchase.

Keep in mind, there are often limits on how often you can take advantage of an Register Rewards deal each week.

The goal is to generate Register Rewards to use on your next transaction to lower your out of pocket costs and help you save money. Make sure you read Getting Paid to Shop to understand rolling rewards to save at Walgreens and other pharmacies.

Walgreens Coupon Policy

There is a nationwide Walgreens coupon policy available online. Make sure to print an official copy of the Walgreens coupon policy to take with you just in case you (or your cashier) need help using coupons at Walgreens.

As a customer-focused retailer, Walgreens encourages the use of coupons by our customers in our retail stores, in accordance with the following guidelines.


  • All valid coupons should be presented to the cashier at the time of checkout.
  • Walgreens does not accept expired coupons.
  • Coupons and their face value cannot be exchanged for cash or gift cards.
  • Competitor coupons are not accepted at Walgreens.
  • Walgreens cannot accept coupons for items not carried in our stores.
  • The number of manufacturer coupons, including Register Rewards manufacturer coupons, may not exceed the number of items in the transaction. The total value of the coupons may not exceed the value of the transaction. Sales tax must be paid, if required by state law.
  • Any coupon offer not covered in these guidelines will be accepted at the discretion of Walgreens management.

Sale Items

  • Walgreens will accept manufacturer coupons for an item that is on sale.
  • In the event that any item’s selling price is less than the value of the coupon, Walgreens will only accept the coupon in exchange for the selling price of the item. Coupon redemption can never exceed the selling price of an item and no cash back is ever provided in exchange for any coupons.

Multiple Coupons

  • When purchasing a single item, Walgreens accepts one manufacturer coupon and applicable Walgreens coupon(s) for the purchase of a single item, unless prohibited by either coupon offer.
  • The coupon amount must be reduced if it exceeds the value of the item after other discounts or coupons are applied. (For example, a $5.00 coupon for a $4.99 item will result in a $4.99 coupon value).
  • When purchasing multiple items, Walgreens accepts multiple identical coupons for multiple qualifying items as long as there is sufficient stock to satisfy other customers, unless a limit is specified. Management reserves the right to limit the quantity of items purchased.

Buy One, Get One Free Coupons

  • When items are featured in a Buy One, Get One Free promotion, up to two coupons can be used against the items being purchased, as long as the net price does not go below zero for the items being purchased.
  • Sales tax must be paid for any Buy One, Get One Free coupon offers, if required by applicable state laws.
