With over 8,000+ store locations across the country, millions of customers visit Walgreens daily to get their everyday essentials and prescriptions.
However, does Walgreens go one step further and sell postage stamps? I did some digging, and this is everything that I discovered!
Does Walgreens Sell Stamps?
Walgreens sells first-class forever stamps in booklets of 20 that are found in the office supplies section or bought over the counter. Each booklet costs $11, and you can get single stamps for 55 cents in some stores. Stamp purchases count towards your Walgreens Balance Rewards.

What Type Of Stamps Does Walgreens Sell?
All Walgreens stores sell first-class forever stamps that have a picture of the American flag.
These are the exact stamps you will find at the U.S. Post Office, so you don’t have to worry about getting invalid stamps when buying these from Walgreens.
How Much Do Stamps Cost At Walgreens?
In all Walgreens stores, stamps are sold in booklets of 20 stamps, and each booklet costs $11.
Unfortunately, not all stores offer the option of buying single stamps or bundles smaller than the standard one of 20 stamps.
You can call your nearest Walgreens store and ask beforehand if they sell single stamps or custom-sized bundles. In stores that do, you will be able to buy stamps for 55 cents per stamp.
Another question you may have is whether you will have to pay extra if you’re not buying directly from the U.S. Post Office.
Fortunately, the answer is no because Walgreens sells stamps for the same price you would pay if you were buying from the U.S. Post Office.
Where In The Store Are Stamps Located?
Stamps are mostly kept in the ‘office supplies’ section in Walgreens stores.
However, sometimes they are also kept near the counter, so it’s best to directly ask the cashier for stamps. If the cashier doesn’t hand them to you directly, they will direct you to the section where you will find them.
Can You Buy Stamps Online At Walgreens?
Unfortunately, Walgreens does not deliver stamps to customers.
You will find the stamps listed on their website and will be able to place an order online, but you will have to pick them up from the store yourself.
Can You Earn Reward Points From Buying Stamps At Walgreens?
Although you will not get any discounts on stamps from Walgreens, your purchase will still add to your Walgreens Balance Rewards (now replaced by myWalgreens) pool if you’re a member of it.
Once your Balance Rewards reaches 1000 points, you can use them to get $1 off your next purchase.
How Can You Find The Nearest Walgreens To Buy Stamps?
Walgreens has 8000+ stores spread intelligently all over the country. For over 75 percent of Americans, there will be a Walgreens store located within a five-mile radius.
In order to find the store nearest to you, you can use the store locator provided by Walgreens itself.
All you have to do is feed your own address (or just the zip code) to the site, and it will show you all the Walgreens stores closest to your location.
The store locator will also give you the contact number, address, and opening hours of each store so that you can call to ask about stamp availability before you visit the store.

Walgreens does sell stamps at all of its stores. These are available in 20-stamp booklets, with each booklet priced at $11. You can also buy single stamps in some stores for 55 cents each, but it is best to call and inquire beforehand about whether the store sells single stamps.
Primarily, Walgreens sells forever stamps that the U.S. Postal Service verifies, and each purchase contributes to your Walgreens Balance Rewards pool.
