Does Walgreens Price Match Prescriptions? Identical Items? Answered

Walgreens does not price match its own stores, its website, or competitor stores and websites for any products, including prescriptions, we were told by Walgreens’ corporate customer service department.

But, during our research, we found that about half of the Walgreens stores we contacted said they do price match with So, if you see a lower price on Walgreens’ website, you can try requesting a price match in-store. To gather this information, we contacted store locations in California, Colorado, Florida, Michigan, and Texas.

Where price matching is available, the items must be identical and you’ll be limited to one price match transaction per day. If the item is currently sold out, you cannot receive a rain check for the lower price.¬†Online sales and special offers, typing errors, previous sales, contact lenses, photos, prescriptions, and health services are not eligible for price matching.
