Seniors save 20% at Walgreens

When it comes to savings, it pays to be a little older and wiser, especially at Walgreens.

The popular drug store, which has locations throughout Miami, offers customers age 55 and older a Senior Savings Day on the first Tuesday of the month. (If the first Tuesday falls on a holiday, the discount day typically occurs on the following Tuesday.)

To keep up with latest news, sign up for the daily Miami on the Cheap newsletter. You can also follow us on Facebook and on Twitter and visit our Facebook group page.

One thing to note: The offer is only valid with a MyWalgreens membership. Additionally, proof of age may be required, so be sure to have photo identification ready. 

On the respective Tuesday each month, qualifying customers save 20 percent on all eligible regular-priced items — but NOT sale or clearance merchandise.

(Update: Walgreens has quietly changed the program. Seniors no longer get 30 percent off Walgreens-branded products.)

The discount is also available online with promo code SENIOR20.

Here’s the fine print on the monthly offer:

“Discount not valid on alcohol, dairy, tobacco, stamps, gift cards, newspapers, magazines, money orders/transfers, transportation passes, lottery tickets, charitable donations, pseudoephedrine or ephedrine products, clinic services, prescriptions, pharmacy items or services, sales tax, the Prescription Savings Club membership fee, and items or services submitted to insurance for reimbursement or where otherwise limited by law. Offer is not combinable with Buy 1 get 1 FREE, Buy 1 get 1 50% off, or Buy 2 get 3rd FREE.”

Walgreens has new loyalty program

Walgreens’ popular and long-running loyalty program, Balance Rewards, has ended – and, in its place, the popular drug store has launched a new loyalty program, myWalgreens.

According to the store, the new program is more simplified for customers. Basically, earn Walgreens Cash for just about every purchase. No more need to keep track of points or to purchase select products for bonus points.

Just like with Balance Rewards, membership in myWalgreens is required to receive sale prices. For more information on the new program, click here
