Personal Gift Advisors at Walgreens for Valentine's Day Shopping and $25 Walgreens Gift Card Giveaway

This Contest is now closed!

This giveaway will run for 24 hours and end on Wednesday 2/10 at 3pm (EST)!



Walgreens is doing something unique this year for Valentine's Day! They are transforming their 26,000 beauty advisors into “Personal Gift Advisors” to help last-minute shoppers find the right gift – from popular fragrances and cosmetics, to candy, cards and cute plush toys!

Did you know? A recent report from the National Retail Federation shows that couples plan to spend less on each other this year; forecasted to spend an average of $63.34 on gifts for their significant other vs. $67.22 last year. Walgreens provides a great value to those who are on a budget this year and the advisors can show you how to be savvy on your spending.


CLICK HERE to head to the Walgreens website to read more about this great offer and to find a store nearest you!

Personal Gift Advisors will be available to help you shop during the hours of 4 to 8 pm on Thursday(2/11) and Friday(2/12) and 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday(2/13).

So if you still need to shop for your spouse or kiddos, why not head to Walgreens to score some great Valentine's Day goodies! Having a personal gift advisor sounds like fun to me! Kind of like Celebrity treatment for the day!

  27. It's not the most romantic - but, I would probably stock up on diapers for our daughter! My hubby would just be happy that he doesn't have to work another side job to pay for them. :)

  56. Would love to be able to pick up some surprises for my kids. We are strapped on a pretty tight budget, I could get them some little things and probably a bunch of great deals too! I am glad to find a blog for saving in MI.
