Walgreens deals 8/16: Milk, Colgate toothpaste (FREE!) & more!

Posted August 15, 2015

Walgreens has some great deals starting 8/16 including milk, Colgate toothpaste (FREE!), Sure, Brut, plastic wrap, Skippy Bumble Bee albacore tuna, lots of school supplies & more!

The Walgreens coupon policy can be found on their website. Information about the coupon policy and reward programs can be found at the bottom of this deals list.

Walgreens recently changed their coupon policy and they no longer allow a coupon on each item of a BOGO deal. In addition, they will no longer accept a coupon for an item if the price of the coupon is more than the item. See all the details on their website.

BR = Balance Rewards Points

RR = Register Rewards

These deals are valid Sunday, 8/16/15 – Saturday, 8/22/15.

5X Everyday points when you spend $10 or more in stores or online from 8/16 – 8/18 with coupon in ad (on the front page). That means you’ll get 50 points per $1. Coupon must be used to get extra points.

    luvstoQI did not take it that way at all. I really appreciate when folks point out a typo or math erroe. I type so many words per day, that there bound to be at least some tpyos... lol Thanks again. :-

    Labs - most Walgreens I have shopped at will not let you use rewards on milk.

  • labs Aug 15, 2015

    Can you use the $2.50 rr on milk?

  • luvstoQ Aug 15, 2015

    Faye, I'm not into checking on all your prices to 'catch' you!! Just always looking at milk prices - knew that one 'had' to be a typo! ;-)

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Aug 15, 2015

    luvstoQ - definitely a typo! Sorry about that. Should have been $2.99/gallon and I just fixed it. Thanks for the heads up. :-)

  • luvstoQ Aug 14, 2015

    The .99 for a gal. of milk is a typo, right???

    Would be great if it wasn't though! ;-)
