Where to Buy the Cheapest Halloween Candy in 2022
Overall, Target and Walmart have the best prices per package on many of the more popular Halloween candy brands. Most brands like Reese’s, KitKat, and M&M’s average at just under $4 a bag at both stores. This doesn’t include Hershey’s Miniatures, which are always going to cost more at nearly $7 a bag.
To save even more at Target, remember to check your Target Circle app regularly to see if any Halloween candy is available at a deeper discount and use your RedCard for an additional 5% off. At Walmart, you can get free shipping on same-day deliveries if you’re a Walmart Plus member.
If you know you’re going to be buying several bags of candy for trick-or-treaters, CVS Halloween candy deals include a few two bags for $7 deals that deliver the most savings.
As for Walgreen’s, the deals are OK, and you can even buy one, get one bag for 50% off on select items. They even have a two for $7 deal on Hershey’s Special Dark Kisses right now. But overall, you’ll want to head to the other stores if you want to save the most money.
Is candy cheaper during Halloween?
While you can find some Halloween candy deals leading up to the holiday, you actually save the most after Halloween. We’ve seen stores mark prices down on leftover candy as soon as Nov. 1, the day after Halloween.
