Walgreens has a pretty sweet monthly deal for all you “seasoned” shoppers (aka those of us ages 55 and up). It’s called Walgreens Senior Day, and while it’s not a new senior discount program, you might not be taking full advantage of all that it offers.

Seniors who are 55 and older can save 20% on eligible regular-priced merchandise in-store and online. So whether you’re shopping for medications, vitamins, or health products, as long as it’s a full-priced item, you can save 20% with the Walgreens Senior Day promotion. But did you know the savings can last a whole week if you’re shopping online? Here’s exactly how the Walgreens senior discount works.

Plus, if you’re an AARP member, we have a way you can save without being over 55.

Walgreens Senior Day is the first Tuesday of the month in stores — and the first week of the month online.

Walgreens Senior Day is a promotion that lets seniors save 20% on their regular-priced purchases. The promotion is available both in-store and online to seniors aged 55 and older.

If you’re shopping in-store, Senior Day happens on the first Tuesday of every month. To take advantage of the discount in-store, you’ll need to have a myWalgreens account and let a Walgreens associate know want to apply your Senior Day discount.

And here’s the kicker — seniors can also shop online all week long (starting the Sunday prior to Senior Day until the Saturday after) and apply the code SENIOR20 at checkout to save 20% on their regular-priced purchases. So that’s seven days of savings online compared to one day in store. A win!


When is the next Senior Day?

The next Walgreens Senior Day savings event happens on June 6, 2023, in all Walgreens stores.

If you’re shopping online, you’ll have a whole week to save (June 4 – June 10) when you apply promo code SENIOR20 at checkout.

Here are the predicted dates for the upcoming Walgreens senior discount days:

  • July 4, 2023
  • August 1, 2023
  • September 5, 2023
  • October 3, 2023
  • November 7, 2023
  • December 5, 2023

TIP: For in-store purchases on Walgreens Senior Day, you may need to show your ID to prove your age.


Use the 20% off discount on any full-priced items on Walgreens Senior Day.

Since you can only use the 20% off Senior Day discount on regular-priced items — and Walgreens has SO many sales happening all the time — unfortunately, the list of eligible items you can use the discount on is kind of slim. So skip buying anything you see that’s on sale.

And you also can’t use the discount for purchases of any of these items either:

  • 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
  • Prescription Savings Club membership fee
  • Items or services that can be reimbursed through insurance or limited by law

This offer also can’t be combined with other promotions like Buy 1 get 1 free, Buy 1 get 1 50% off, or Buy 2 get 1 free. It also doesn’t apply to bulk orders, back-ordered items, and out-of-stock items.



AARP gives all members — no matter the age — the Walgreens Senior discount.

If you’re an AARP member (even at the young age of 13!) and haven’t hit 55 yet, you might be curious about using the Senior Day discount code online. The details from Walgreens on the Senior Day offer indicate that it’s available for those myWalgreens members who are 55 or older, as well as for any and all AARP members. Bear in mind though, a lot of the products covered by this discount are targeted towards seniors. But, good news – you can snag a 20% discount by using the code SENIOR20 with your linked AARP membership!
