How to Get Free Crayons and Markers at Walgreens Today

.This morning, on WAFB, I talked about getting FREE Crayola Crayons and Markers at Walgreens. No, they are not handing out FREE stuff at the door, but here's how to get this and other FREEBIES every week.

Walgreens has what are called Register Rewards. These are just as good as cash money and are earned on purchases made each week. These will automatically print after you purchase an item with a Register Reward deal and can be used on your next purchase. These deals will be listed in their weekly sales flyer. Of course, you can check back here for a full list of every week's deals.

Here's how to get Crayola Crayons and markers FREE (sale ends at midnight today):

Buy (1) 24 count Crayola Crayons $1.00
You will then get a Register Reward (RR) worth $1.00 (for your next purchase)
Final Price, FREE

*Hint* Separate your entire purchase in two. Buy all of your items that will print RR first, then use them on your items that do not.

Crayola Washable Markers 8-pk Classic or 20-pk Super …
