I don't know what's up with Walgreens lately, but they're doing another $5/$20 promotion. Perhaps they're trying to compete with CVS. It certainly wouldn't bother me! :-)
I finished my Christmas shopping this afternoon (I think that's a record for me: four days before Christmas), and I'm really not thinking of anything I need at Walgreens. (The B1G2 Patriot candles tugged on my heart... until I reminded myself that I didn't like any of the scents they had in stock earlier this week.) It certainly is tempting, though. Perhaps I should show visiting family members our local Walgreens, and make it a family affair. :-)
The email I received also hinted at a one-day special on Sunday, accessed by clicking the same link.
