Walgreens Now Offers Its Senior Discount Weekly

·2 min read

If you are 55 or older or are an AARP member, shopping just got a little less expensive at Walgreens.

The drugstore is expanding its Seniors Day discount to every Tuesday.

It's not the usual blah, blah, blah. Click here to sign up for our free newsletter.

That means if you are at least 55, or are an AARP member, you can save the following on Tuesdays:

  • 30% off eligible regular-price items from Walgreens brands in stores, or online with code SENIOR30

  • 20% off all other eligible regular-price items in stores, or online with code SENIOR20

Previously, the discount was available one day per month. The change, announced Friday, is part of an effort to offer customers more convenience while practicing social distancing, Walgreens said in a company announcement.

To take advantage of the senior discount online, you must be logged into your Walgreens.com account. In stores, you need a Balance Rewards card.

In addition, some products do not qualify for these discounts. You can find out more by visiting Walgreens’ Seniors Day webpage and scrolling down to the fine print.

The move by Walgreens follows an announcement last month that the drugstore would begin offering free home delivery of eligible prescription medications due to the coronavirus pandemic. CVS has made a similar pledge.

In addition, Walgreens is among a handful of retailers offering free delivery for all online purchases during the pandemic — meaning there is no minimum purchase requirement to qualify for free shipping right now.

How to save more at Walgreens

Shopping at Walgreens on Tuesdays can net you big savings. By why stop at 20% or 30% off when you can increase those discounts?

For example, if you shop through a cash-back portal like Rakuten, you can boost your savings. As of Monday, shoppers using Rakuten could earn up to 3% cash back on their purchases at Walgreens.
