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 15 - 21, 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!



Best deals in the May 15 Walgreens ad


  • Black Forest Organic Gummies -- on sale for 99 cents per bag.  Use the $1 off coupon from the 5/1 Smartsource insert and get yours for FREE!  Note: Some stores may refuse this deal on its own, because the Walgreens coupon policy says they don't have to accept coupons worth more than the sale price of an item.  However, my personal experience has been that stores will take this sort of deal when paired with a filler item.  YMMV!
