Saving Money with Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products

There are a select few products where I am loyal to a particular name brand. Maybe it's a food that just tastes better or a shampoo that leaves my hair with that something extra, but I'm willing to pay a little bit more to know that I'm getting exactly what I'm looking for.
But overall, buying the store brand is exactly the same with only one difference: price. And not just a few pennies, but major savings that can really add up. Everything from things like diapers to beauty supplies can keep money in your pocket while providing your family with the same exceptional results that you would expect from the big brand names.

Which is why turning to Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products will not only result in a great value, but it will allow families and individuals to save money without sacrificing quality or trust.


With the rising cost of health care, saving money on over-the-counter medications can really benefit a family’s budget. I have purchased a variety of Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products over the years and have always found that they have done an excellent job... which, if for some reason they didn't, I would have taken advantage of the fact that they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

So, knowing that Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products are Walgreens pharmacist recommended and that most contain the same active ingredients as other national brands, I was interested in trying out a new one for us: Walgreens Brand Triple Antibiotic Ointment.

We have long used Neosporin to help heal cuts and wounds faster (Big Sister E calls it the "magic cream") so replacing it with this Antibiotic Ointment was an easy transition.

Considering the number of scrapes and cuts that my kids receive, I'm a big fan of anything that helps protect them from further irritation and infection by bacteria in the environment. We simply applied the Antibiotic Ointment before covering a wound with a bandage and let it do its job - quickly, easily, and pain-free.

In addition to being an exceptional value for you (it retails around $3.79 where the name brand is around $6.19), purchasing Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products benefits your community as well through the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™. Every year Walgreens contributes up to $3 million to this fund, which provides free preventative health tests as well as other health and wellness services and education to local communities.

To learn more about Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products, visit their website or talk directly with the pharmacist at your neighborhood Walgreens or right online.

What about you? Are you loyal to brand names or do you think that the store brand works just as well?

You know I love the walgreens diapers. They often do a sale B1G1 on their jumbo packs and I stock up. For ourselves and for the crisis pregnancy center.

They work just as well as the expensive ones and with 2 kids I have only had one blow out. I can't say the same for Pampers.

I tried using store brands wherever I can. Like you Walgreens is one of those places I trust for health care products.
