Walgreens Ad 5/1: Best Sales & Deals

This post may include affiliate links.  Go here to see my full disclosure policy!

Here are my picks for the best deals in the Walgreens ad for May 1 - 7, 2016!

If you're new to shopping at Walgreens, be sure to check out my how-to guide to get yourself up to speed.  

Walgreens is slightly quirky with their policies, so you'll want to be fully prepped before you hit the store.


Also, be sure you check out the new changes to the Balance Rewards program before you start shopping -- I think you'll be pleased!
