It pays to be older and wiser and take advantage of special savings only for those 55+. On the first Tuesday of the month, Walgreens offers customers 55 and older a 20% discount on W brand products and 15% on nearly everything else.
Walgreens Senior Savings Day discounts do not apply to sale items, prescriptions, cigarettes, phone cards or similar items, but do apply to all Wallgreens, W Brand and Nice! products, and even to sale items.
In New York City, that also includes members of the Duane Reade customer loyalty program, since Walgreens now owns NYC drugstore chain Duane Reade.
You might be asked to show proof of age to qualify for the discount.
Note that on Senior Savings Day, you can get the senior discount only if you are a member of the Walgreen’s customer rewards program. It’s FREE to join, for customers of any age, and you get additional discounts.
The senior savings also apply to members of AARP.
NYC supermarkets including Food Emporium have discounts for seniors.
