Buy Two Google Play Gift Cards, Get $5 Walgreens Gift Card

Good until Saturday night 7/22/17, at your local Walgreens brick and mortar stores, you can get a free $5 Walgreens gift card, if you purchase any two Google Play, or NIKE or Spa Week gift cards. This is promising because there are $10 Google Play gift cards, so you can pay $20 (two $10 gift cards) and get a $5 Walgreens gift card.

Assuming you have no problem spending the Walgreens gift card, that’s a $5 return on a $20 investment, a 25% return or virtual discount, however you want to account for it! You need to be a Walgreens rewards member, which is free to join.

I don’t know how many of these you can do during this week. I haven’t done this yet, but I’m planning to do this (unless I forget).

Why is this a Great Deal?

Google PLAY gift card sales are not as common as iTunes. But that’s not all. You can use your GooglePLAY gift card balance to pay for subscriptions. So by getting a discount on GooglePLAY gift cards, you are getting a surrogate discount on everything you buy with it!

One way to take advantage of this is to start an HBO Now subscription through GooglePLAY. You pay $15 per month for HBO Now, but your effective price will be as good as your discount percentage on the gift cards. As long as you can keep buying gift cards at a discount, you’ll keep getting a virtual discount on HBO Now!

Likewise, you can start a GooglePlay Music All Access subscription, or a YouTube TV subscription, or anything else that can be paid through GooglePlay, and subsequently through the gift card balance. Doing this will get you the aforementioned effective discount. If you are not sure what all this means, check this earlier post.
