Can you get free stuff at Walgreens? Abso-freakin’-lutely.

You just gotta know where to look and what to do to come away with all the Walgreens freebies. Watch closely.

But first, download the official KCL app so you don’t miss any freebies.


1. Get Walgreens free COVID testing at over 6,000 locations.

Walgreens free COVID testing is available to anyone three years old and older at 6,000+ locations nationwide. They offer Diagnostic Lab Test (PCR), Rapid Diagnostic Test (ID NOW), and Rapid Antigen Test (BinaxNOW). The testing is contactless and available in the drive-thru of Walgreens.

You can find a testing location and make your appointment here.


2. Get Walgreens free COVID vaccine and booster.

You can get your COVID vaccine and booster for free at Walgreens. Currently, Walgreens is offering the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine. It has no cost to you. The vaccine is either covered by insurance or government assistance.

Plus, myWalgreens members earn $5 Walgreens Cash rewards for every vaccine they get at Walgreens.

You can schedule your appointment here.


3. Watch for photo freebies like a Walgreens free 8×10 print at least once every two months.

Walgreens offers a free photo print every month, and you can count on every other month to get a free 8×10 picture (reg. $3.99). The months where you won’t find a Walgreens free 8×10 photo, you’ll find offers for a free 5×7 photo (reg. $2.99) or free sets of 4×6 photos (reg. $0.37/print). They only allow one per customer, so get your spouse or buddy to make an account and order a second one through them!

You can get the current photo promo code when you follow the KCL Walgreens Deals page and all of the Walgreens picture printing tips here.

TIP: They also have promotions for 5-10 free 4×6 photos at least four times a year to look out for.


4. Get a free shingles vaccine at Walgreens with most insurance plans.

Walgreens offers a variety of vaccines readily available. One of those is the shingles vaccine. Most private health insurance plans will cover the cost of the vaccine for people 60 years of age or older. Some plans cover the vaccine for those over 50.


5. Get a Walgreens free flu shot with most health insurance.

All you have to do is schedule an appointment or walk into a Walgreens, ask at the pharmacy counter, and show them proof of insurance. No copay will be required. Keep an eye out for promotions where Walgreens will give you $5 in Walgreens Cash for getting your flu shot.

If you don’t have insurance, however, Walgreens flu shots will cost you around $40, but you can use Walgreens Cash to help pay.



6. Get Walgreens free vitamins during popular BOGO sales.

Save up to 50% on vitamins when you shop at Walgreens! One of their most common deals is a BOGO vitamin sale.

Not only are they on sale, but you can pair the sale with coupons, Walgreens Cash, and Register Rewards.

7. Get Walgreens free shipping when you spend over $35, or choose free ship to store.

A Walgreens free shipping code is rare. Instead, you can get free shipping on orders over $35 or just send them straight to the store for free.

Don’t forget when you’re shopping on Walgreens.com that you can use digital coupons to save more.


8. Stack coupons and rebates to get Walgreens freebies or better-than-free deals.

When you can stack a manufacturer coupon, a store coupon, and a Walgreens Cash promotion, the magic happens. One of the best ways to get moneymakers or Walgreens freebies is by stacking coupons with rebate offers on apps like Ibotta.

9. About once a month, candy is completely free after Register Reward.

About every other month we see Register Reward promotions pop up for a full price bag of candy when you buy a bag of candy on sale for $1.99. The most popular brands for these are typically Black Forest gummies, Now & Later chewy candies, and Trolli gummies.


10. Look for overlapping rebates and rewards to make Crest mouthwash and toothpaste free.

Usually, the best time to buy both mouthwash and toothpaste is when there is a coupon as well as an Ibotta offer. These are often great ways to get moneymakers. We see stock-up prices on toothpaste and mouthwash every couple of weeks. The most frequent are Crest and Colgate.

11. Stack manufacturer coupons and in-store promos for Walgreens free shampoo and conditioner.

As with mouthwash, hair care is best bought when you can combine coupons with rebates. Specifically, TRESemme is the best shampoo and conditioner brand you can get at Walgreens. It typically has a high-valued manufacture coupon with a Register Reward or Walgreens Cash offer — making it completely free.
