• Black Friday Walgreens Shopping: 5 Things You Need To Know (2016 Survival Guide)


    Walgreens Black Friday Shopping Tips

    Interested in scoring deals at Walgreens on Black Friday? If so, you’ll definitely want to check out these Black Friday Walgreens shopping tips. Walgreens, like other drugstores, is not your typical Black Friday shopping experience. While they do offer some deals on toys and other items. the best overall deals will be on items you can coupon for: hair care, medicines, diapers and wipes, etc. While the deals they offer aren’t typical holiday gift items, it is a great opportunity to stock up on cheap “regular” purchases. This frees up your budget to spend a bit more on holiday gifts! 🙂

    Here are my favorite Walgreens Black Friday shopping tips:

    1. Plan Ahead

    Black Friday and Pre-Black Friday ads will be leaked several weeks in advanced and we can view them here. We’ll be posting them here when they are out: Walgreens Black Friday ads, hours and info page.

    We’ll also be posting blog posts highlighting the best deals for Black Friday and Pre-Black Friday sales on the blog. To see the most recent Walgreens deals, go here.

    2. Learn How to Coupon at Walgreens

    Once you have your Balance Rewards card, you have to know how to use it to your advantage. Balance Rewards is a BIG part of couponing at Walgreens. Keep in mind that couponing at Walgreens is one of the more complicated stores to learn. That’s not to say it isn’t worth trying, though; just allow yourself a little extra time to understand the process. You can learn how to coupon at Walgreens here.

    Many of the deals that are available to customers during Black Friday Walgreens shopping will be deals that earn you Balance Rewards Points. These Points are part of the Walgreens Balance Rewards loyalty program and are redeemable for money off future purchases. In order to earn your Points, you have to be a Balance Rewards member.

    3. It’s Actually a 3-day Sale

    In an effort to compete with bigger retailers (and to get business when other stores are typically closed), Walgreens is open for longer hours through the Thanksgiving holiday and beyond. As of 2015, they were open from 8 am to 10 pm on Thanksgiving and open regular hours for Black Friday and beyond. For Thanksgiving, Black Friday and the following Saturday, Walgreens is offering their Black Friday deals, as well. I love the flexibility that these added hours give you for shopping, but keep in mind that by Saturday some of the more popular things might be sold out.

    4. Stock Up on Gift Wrap

    So, you’ll probably want to go to bigger retailers like Target or Walmart to get your actual holiday gifts, but what about the wrapping paper for them? Walgreens is a fantastic place to pick that up. While shopping at Walgreens on Black Friday, don’t pass up the great deals on gift wrap. They usually have these types of things priced very cheaply; in 2015 they even had them on sale Buy 1 Get 2 FREE!

    5. Consider Getting the Cheap Electronics

    My last tip for successful Walgreens Black Friday shopping is this: don’t pass up the electronics. Young kids break stuff; it’s just a fact of life. Why spend more on nicer earbuds and charging cables when you know they’re just going to get broken or lost in a matter of days/weeks? Walgreens always has cheap Black Friday deals on off-brand electronics that are great for the kiddos. You won’t be kicking yourself when they get lost or broken!
