Amazing Diaper Deal at Walgreens

I have found a mega cheap way to stock up on diapers this week, and believe me we have totally stocked up for the next several months. Walgreens diapers are on sale Buy one get one free. They are usually $9 for a jumbo pack, but if you buy more than 1, they drop down to 2 for $16 or $8 a piece. Since they are buy one get one free this week, that equates to $4.50 per pack for the first 2 and $4 for how ever many after that that are bought in the same transaction.

Now here is the amazing part of the deal. If you go back to the pharmacy counter and ask them for one of their "$50 in savings" coupon booklet, there is a Walgreens coupon in there for $2 off Walgreens brand diapers. When the cashier puts this coupon code in, it will take off $2 on every single pack of diapers in your transaction, thus making the first 2 packs $2.50 each and the rest $2 each. That is a great deal for a jumbo pack of diapers.

If that wasn't good enough, here is something else you can do to get more bang for your buck. Walgreens has their Iceland Health Omega-3 Fish Oil soft gels (120 count) on sale for $8 a bottle, but you will get an $8RR after purchasing it. Also, their Bayer quick release crystals (4 count box) are on sale for $2.50 with a $2.50RR printed off too (this is a month long RR deal). If you are willing to do a lot of transactions (1 transaction per 1 Bayer or 1 Fish Oil), you can get enough RR to pay for your diaper transaction. For example, if you were planning on getting 8 packs of diapers using the above deal, the total would come to about $17 (plus tax). You could buy 6 Bayer quick release boxes (each in a separate transaction), and get $15 in RR to use towards your diapers, or you could buy 2 Fish Oil bottles (again, separate transactions) and get $16 in RR to use towards the diapers. It's like getting more for free!

As you can see from my picture, I went a little wild with this deal and kept going back to Walgreens to get more diapers (I've been 3 times and cleaned out almost 3 stores). I bought 3 size 1, 3 size 2, 8 size 3, 10 size 4, and 6 size 5, plus 1 bottle of Omega-3 Fish Oil (they are really great to take if you have dry eyes), 17 boxes Bayer quick release tablets, and 1 box Glucerna cereal (I had a coupon for a free box, so I picked it up while I was there). As my luck would have it, my Walgreens March Rebate gift card came in the mail this week and I was able to use that on a lot of it, so I pretty much have only spent about $15 out of pocket for all of this.

As for how good Walgreens diapers are--I can't really complain too much about them. My daughter has blowouts in any kind of diaper, including Pampers and Huggies, so I am very content getting whatever brand I can for cheap. When your husband is in medical school, and you are trying your very hardest not to take loans out for living expenses, you can't be too picky. I feel very blessed from above for help in finding amazing deals on the things that we need and the ability to stock up so that we will not only have food storage for a few months, but we will have enough of diapers and other toiletries to last several months too. I know it might seem silly to have gotten some size 1 and 2's since my daughter is in 3s, but I figure we might as well have a few on hand for when we have our next baby (no, this is not an announcement) or in case a friend needs some. Happy shopping this week. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment and I'll answer it as soon as I can.

  1. Wow, what a haul! I went to Walgreens today and only spent 2.52 OOP but will have to go back tomorrow because I have a prescription to fill and by the time I got there, the pharmacy was already closed. Glad to know about the fifty dollar coupon book- I'll definitely ask when I go!
