Add 3 to the cart, in any combination.
So, add 3 of one toothpaste, or one of 3 kinds of toothpaste.
Log-in to a Walgreens account (or create an account).
View the cart.
Under one of the toothpaste is red "Coupon Available" text.
Click "Get Coupon" next to it.
At the bottom of the coupon list, click the "$7.00 Off Three Crest and/or Oral-B" coupon.
Return to the cart to see a $7 off discount.
Three of $2.99 toothpaste with a $7 discount comes to $2 plus tax.
Proceed to Checkout.
Choose in-store pickup to avoid a shipping fee.
Walgreens only has curbside pickup for toothpaste at select locations, so you may need to walk into the store to pickup your order at the register.
This is different than their prescription drive-through, where many locations allow picking up prescriptions and some wellness products at the pharmacy drive-through.
- 60-Pack Individually Wrapped Alcohol Wipes $17.15
60-pack of individually-wrapped 4x3-inch 96% alcohol wipes for $17.15 (29¢ per wipe).
This looks good for:
Wiping down groceries and containers that come into the home,
Cleaning door handles after someone touches them, and
Sanitizing a steering wheel or phone, when someone else uses them.
Its 96% Isopropyl Alcohol content can kill viruses on hands, plastic containers, hard surfaces, and cardboard boxes.
However, as explained in this article, adding a little water to the pads could make them more effective.
It seems too much alcohol can be less effective than alcohol mixed with a little water.
So these pads CAN work, but may work better if you ADD water.
Otherwise, regular soap can be a good alternative for killing the virus.
If you have a sink nearby, soapy paper towels and a little water should be another way to clean surfaces.
And, of course, hand washing (with soap) after touching something that someone else has touched, is the best strategy to minimize your risk of catching Covid-19.
- 50 Face Masks for $30
A company that normally sells Chinese-imported smart home products is now selling a pack of 50 disposable face masks for $30 with free shipping.
Delivery can take up to 2 weeks.
According to the product photos, they do not fully enclose the sides of the nose like N95 face respirator masks do.
They look similar to a "medical" mask, which as today's New York Times article says, will provide some protection for you and for others.
Virologists believe that face coverings lower the distance that an infected person spreads Covid-19, so if everyone wears masks, the rate of infection drops.
Researchers believe most of those infected are asymptomatic and highly infectious, not knowing they have it while spreading it to others.
So if you are infected, and have zero symptoms, wearing a mask reduces the changes of you spreading the virus to others.
These numbers go down when the infected person sneezing, walking, jogging, or bicycling has their face covered.
So, while N95 masks help prevent those exposed to the virus from getting it, any face covering, including these masks from Wyze, will help lower the spread when people wear masks outside the home.

- 3-Pack Clorox Disinfecting Wipes for $8.50 (expired: all sold out)
Inventory is regional, but it seems to be in-stock for significant parts of the US.
Shipping is free for all Staples.com orders for the time being, with no minimum purchase required.
Note that Staples is selling other disinfectants reserved for healthcare workers (like this), so this item ships at a lower priority than for those on the front lines of battling the pandemic.
We assume buying this deal will not jeopardize lives by taking product away from those critically in need.
This deal highlighted the fact that office supply stores sell cleaning products.
If toilet paper, paper towels, soap, and disinfectants are sold-out at Amazon and your local grocery store delivery, check Staples, Office Depot, and other office supply stores.
OfficeDepot has realtime in-store inventory checking, with a curbside pickup option.
