Walgreens Diaper Deals Are Back!

This week is a great week to stock up on very cheap diapers at Walgreens. It's been a few months since we were "drowning in diapers" from the last Walgreens diaper sale. Since then, I've gotten a better idea of exactly how many packs we go through each month, so that I can plan accordingly for the next sale without going overboard.

Here's how this week's sale works. Walgreens brand Jumbo pack diapers are "Buy 1 Get 1 Free" at $8.99. If you have the $2 pharmacy coupon booklet coupon, you will get $2 off each pack. So, your total for 2 packs of diapers will be $8.99 - $2 - $2 = $4.99. If you have the W card, you will also get an additional 10% off your purchase credited to your W card. Depending on what value the 10% is calculated on, your end cost per package will be between $1 - $2. TIME TO STOCK UP!

I headed out this morning right after church and stocked up on diapers for Baby D. I also picked up a few packs for a friend who is having a baby soon and a few extra packs to donate. In the process, I used up all of my Register Rewards from my Walgreens spree one week ago.

Here's a few things to keep in mind:
  • If you have the $2 coupon in the pharmacy booklet, make sure you ask to keep the coupon for future sales. They are valid through the end of the year. Walgreens does not need to keep their own store coupons, as they just throw them out.
  • The training pants are also included in the sale; however, the $2 coupon did not work on these, even though they are listed on the coupon.
  • It's likely that Walgreens will run a $x off $xx coupon later this week as they have been doing for several weeks. If this happens, you could save enough to get the diapers for almost free. I chose to just buy mine now for a buck or two a pack rather than wait and take the chance that they are out of stock by the end of the week. The last time Walgreens ran their great diaper deal, all stores in my area were wiped clean in the first few days of the sale. However, if you choose to wait, assuming they have a $5 off a $20 purchase later this week, you could buy 10 packs of diapers for just under $10.

Happy Bargain Hunting!!!
