Walgreens (and the Walgreens-owned chain Duane Reade) offers cash back on debit card purchases. You can get up to $20 back per transaction. You can’t get cash back on credit card or check purchases. Below, we explain how to get cash back from Walgreens.
Walgreens Cash Back Policy
When shopping at Walgreens, you can pay with cash, check, gift card, debit card, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, or Apple Pay. However, if you want to get cash back, you’ll need to use your debit card.
You can get $5, $10, or $20 per transaction, and there’s no minimum purchase amount. You can get money in whatever form you need — bills, coins, or a combination of both.
If you need more than $20, you can make separate transactions. Or, you can usually find an ATM next to the register; keep in mind that you may have to pay an ATM fee if you use an ATM.
Duane Reade Cash Back Policy
Duane Reade, which Walgreens owns and operates primarily in New York, follows the same cash-back policy.
The maximum amount you can get back is $20 using a debit card, and you can choose either $5, $10, or $20 at checkout..
Other Places That Offer Cash Back
Walgreens isn’t the only large chain that offers cash back with purchases. In general, grocery stores, pharmacies, and convenience stores are good places to look when you need cash back.
Note that grocery stores tend to have higher maximum withdrawal limits than pharmacies and convenience stores.
