Walgreens opened in 1901 when Charles Walgreen opened the first store in Chicago. As it grew with the community, Charles began inventing things like the malted milkshake and the first drugstore to provide its medications in child-safe containers. It now has 8,000 stores providing everything from nutritional products to groceries. Walgreens also offers photos, contacts, and prescription services.

The Good

  • Extensive Selection
  • Free Shipping on Orders Over $25
  • Rewards Program

Extensive Selection

Walgreens is one of the largest chains to offer an online vitamin store. This has helped it accumulate a very extensive selection and range of products. It has organized its products into 14 main categories which include: beauty, personal care, medicines & treatments, vitamins & supplements, and many other categories. As mentioned above, Walgreens can also take care of your prescription needs, contact lenses, and photos all on its website.

Each product includes a description of nutrients and ingredients of the item. Consumers receive a variety of information on all vitamins and supplements. It also includes the nutritional label along with reviews from other shoppers.

Some of the major health products available are:

  • dietary supplements
  • herbal products
  • multivitamin
  • mineral supplements
  • probiotics
  • various forms of vitamins and minerals

Free Shipping on Orders Over $25

Walgreens offers a competitive free shipping rate on its vitamin supplements. It offers free shipping to any orders that are $25 or more. It also offers free shipping on all gift card purchases. Its return policy is also beneficial for customers. It offers the standard returns up to 30 days after the purchase, but Walgreens also offers a guarantee on its products. If the customer is not fully satisfied they may return the unused portion for a full refund, including shipping and handling. This is one of the more generous return policies we have seen from vitamin stores.

Rewards Program

There is an option for a rewards program at Walgreens. Balance Rewards is a program that requires consumers to signup but is free to join. As you buy, you earn points which will earn you rewards. Most items are worth 10 points per dollar, while some are worth more. Once 5,000 points are earned, $5 is awarded to the shopper. There is the possibility to earn up to $50 in rewards with 40,000 points. The website also offers live chat assistance at any time in English or Spanish. It provides the feature to keep items shipped to you at regular intervals, either every 30, 60, 90, 120, or 180 days. This is an easy option to select offered at every check out page.

The Bad

  • Rewards Program Limitations

Rewards Program Limitations

The rewards program is not worth it unless a customer shops with Walgreens frequently. Customers can only receive $50 back in-store credit at a time. Anything over that in rewards will not be given to the customer.

The Bottom Line

Walgreens vitamins selection and pricing is competitive with other health and wellness retailers. It offers a large variety of supplement products, essential nutrients, and other health and dietary assistance products. It provides a competitive free shipping rate and returns policy. Although its rewards program is not as great as others, it still allows for customers to gain up to $50. Walgreens has been in business for over 114 years showing that it is a reliable source for consumers.

Every time I visit, the employees are helpful, friendly and help me find or get what I need. They usually have whatever I need, and offer good selections. Their prescription drive through is also very good. The only downside is wait times because so many customers use them.

I mainly began going to Walgreens when our local Pharmacy closed and all our records were moved to a new Walgreens. I have been purchasing my vitamins almost exclusively at Walgreens in the last few years. They are competitively priced and then are often offered on BOGO specials. I also enjoy the other deals I find in the store.

Walgreens is my go-to place for smaller items such as hand sanitizer, nail polish, gum, napkins, snacks and much more. The checkout is normally quick, and the photo development is also quick. The walgreens app is easy to operate.

Their vitamin department is not bad. They have some quality things like SAMe at cut-rate prices when it's on sale. With vitamins, you get what you pay for. I also like the atmosphere of this store better than CVS which is always so yukky.

The updated layout, overall look of the stores and selection of the products are attractive. Company is doing a very good job re-inventing, re-modernizing, adapting to customer's needs. The CVS appears to be stuck in 90th with floor plans and aisle designs. The pharmacy at Walgreens operates efficiently, offers deliveries.

Walgreens is an expert at vitamin health. They know what is important, they know what works. If you have any questions about their vitamin assortment, you can check in with the pharmacy team and they can answer questions regarding vitamin health. They are truly a great place to fulfill this critical need for vitamins at great prices!

Ive always preferred Walgreens over some of the other drug stores in my area. Their prices on vitamins and medicines and other miscellaneous items have always been pretty reasonable. What put Walgreens over the top for me though is the fact that I can now pick up my FedEx packages in the store. It’s nice to not have to worry about Porch Pirates anymore! This is a great service that Walgreens has added and has helped them earn my loyalty.

I know I can trust the quality of your product and I can find makeup or facial cleansers here when I cannot at other stores. I like that there are so many locations around the country, so I can always count on being able to go to Walgreens wherever I am. I also appreciate the customer service and other services offered here, like photos. Sometimes I don't shop here though, because I feel like the prices are higher that other stores I can go to.

I love Walgreens. I have been getting my prescriptions filled at Walgreens for the past 25 years and have never had an issue regarding my medicine. If there’s ever been a question they have always called me or communicated with the doctor and have been very timely in getting my prescriptions filled. I would recommend Walgreens to anyone who needs their prescriptions filled.

A few months ago while traveling, our son broke his elbow and required surgery. I found myself at a Walgreens at 9:00 at night, getting his prescriptions filled. It had been a hard week. My mother in law had just died two days before, and we had her funeral the next day. And my son was in surgery, and at that point I felt like I was running on my last cylinder. What was amazing about Walgreens is how well they took care of me. They were helpful and quick with the prescriptions, and made sure I had everything I needed. There customer service was wonderful that night.

I am personally not a fan of Walgreens. I find it extremely disappointing how much higher their costs at the pharmacy are compared to other pharmacies. It is also frustrating to see that other items are extremely over priced. For example, the cost of notebooks at Walgreens was double the price of Target or Walmart. Another issue I have with them is that they do not accept Navy insurance for prescriptions.

Walgreen's offers a nice variety of commonly used vitamins for my family. For example, we use Emergen-C every day and like that Walgreen's has it in-stock in all of our favorite flavors. The store is organized so that I can find what I am looking for easily. Their staff is courteous and helpful when I have any questions.

I enjoy Walgreens for multiple reasons I like that they have a little bit of everything and I don’t have to go through a great big store sometime they are a little overpriced but I think you pay that for the price for the ability because they don’t have a huge store and I’ve gotten prescriptions from there a few times and they’ve always been great the customer service is great and they always help me in a timely manner

My husband loves Walgreens so much that he got me a Walgreens gift card for Valentine’s Day. I wasn’t thrilled, however he wasn’t wrong that I love shopping at Walgreens. I have been there for everything from a arm brace for my daughters sprained wrist, to passport photos, to laundry detergent at 11 pm when I realized I ran out. They have it all!

Walgreens is an excellent drugstore that has a variety of items that make it easy to get quite a few different things in one place, like prescriptions, OTC drugs, and a few odds and ends as well. Their customer service is also pretty good, and they have stores all over the place which makes it a pretty convenient store to pick up whatever vitamins or medications that you're looking for.
