Ready to knock out your gift list this Black Friday? Walgreens is the place to be! I know you’re probably thinking I’m crazy saying that, but seriously, you can get so many great deals during Black Friday at Walgreens.

I mean, obviously you won’t be walking out of Walgreens with a new 75-inch TV. But, you’ll get nice deals on personalized photo projects, household products, kids’ toys, and personal care items.

There are a few things I want you to keep in mind before you kill it at Walgreens Black Friday:

To be the first to know of all the deals, download the KCL app or bookmark the Walgreens KCL page so you don’t miss out on any savings.

 

1. The Black Friday Walgreens ad drops the second week of November.

In the past few years, the Walgreens Black Friday ad dropped in the second week of November. I’m expecting it to be the same this year. It’s released as early as Nov. 7, so here’s hoping that’s the case this year.

The sale runs from Thanksgiving to the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

 

2. Join myWalgreens loyalty program before Black Friday.

The only way you’ll really be able to maximize your savings on Black Friday is by being a myWalgreens member. Get signed up now so you’re ready right when the best deals drop.

 

3. Shop Walgreens Black Friday deals in store on Thanksgiving Day.

Walgreens Black Friday hours may vary from store to store, but expect them to be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Use the Walgreens store locator to find your closest store.

Going in store is a nice advantage, because you can do multiple transactions to earn Walgreens Cash.

 

4. Use Walgreens curbside pickup to score online Black Friday deals.

While many deals are focused in store, Walgreens.com does offer a nice amount of deals, too. In 2020 during Black Friday they offered these deals online:

  • 25% off site wide regular price items
  • Totes Memory Foam Slippers for $6.49
  • 60% off all cards & premium stationery
  • 10 free gift tags

Walgreens makes shopping online pretty easy, too. They now offer curbside pickup, or you can also get your order shipped for free when you spend over $35.

 

5. Save on household paper products during Black Friday sales.

A Black Friday deal on toilet paper or paper towels is probably not on the top of your shopping list, but I’ll be honest…if I can save on those items, I don’t care what day of the year it is. With a house full of boys, I just might put a bow on one of the packs (just kidding).

Buy 4 Bounty Essentials Paper Towels, 6-count (224 square feet) (reg. $7.99) $4.99, sale price
Or Charmin Essentials Mega Roll Bath Tissue, 6-count (229 square feet) (reg. $6.49) $4.99, sale price
Buy 4, receive $6 Register Reward
Pay $19.96, receive $6 Register Reward
Final Price: $3.49 each, when you buy 4, or $0.58 per roll, or $0.02 per square feet

 

6. Grab personal care items and gift sets at Walgreens.

It’s no surprise that Walgreens would have a few good deals on personal care products during Black Friday. These deals can range from items you need for your own house to nice gift sets you can give out. Plus, some of these deals are available online.

7. Load up on holiday candy at Walgreens during Black Friday.

Easter and Halloween aren’t the only holidays for candy. Candy makes for great stocking stuffers or little gifts for coworkers. During Black Friday, Walgreens has nice sales on holiday candy, like Hershey’s for just $1.99 or Russell Stovers Boxes Buy 1 Get 1 Free. Plus, in 2020, they had a Walgreens store coupon available to make it really cheap to get chocolate.

8. Grab your photo deals at Walgreens during Black Friday.

If there’s one deal you should check out during the Walgreens Black Friday sale, it’s their photo deals. I always like to use the photo department deals to knock out unique holiday gifts.

In 2020, Walgreens offered:

  • 60% off all cards & premium stationery
  • 10 free gift tags
Buy 10 Gift Tag $2.49, regular price
Use TAGGED for 10 free gift tags

9. Take advantage of B2G2 free toys at Walgreens.

What’s better than a free toy? Two free toys! Walgreens year after year offers Buy 2 Get 2 Free children’s toys. They’re priced at $6.99, so after the sale it comes out to just $3.50 each. I love this deal, because I can get the kids toys and grab more for donations too.

Buy 4 Children’s Toys $6.99, regular price
Buy 2 get 2 free
Final Price: $3.50 each, when you buy 4

 

10. Buy gift cards and get a gift card for yourself, too.

For those who are hard to shop for, you can grab a gift card at Walgreens and get a gift card back for yourself. In 2020, if you spent $50 on select gift cards, you got a $10 Walgreens gift card back. These gift cards could be for Cabela’s, Bass Pro Shops, Apple, or DoorDash.

 

11. Walgreens will take returns up to 30 days.

Whether you’re shopping online or in the store, Walgreens will take returns up to 30 days after purchase for exchange or refund. This policy is year-round—so no stress about learning a new policy for the holidays.

If you’re not completely satisfied with Walgreens brand products, you can return the unused portion and they will refund the full price, including shipping.
