Duane Reade — Velour beach towels are BOGO, just in time for the summertime pool, beach and vacation season. Also BOGO are Nature Made vitamins — and the Duane Read sale is all month, not just this week.
CVS – BOGO deals on CVS brand Ibuprofen, Acetominophen and Naproxin. Also, Maxwell House instant coffee and Bumble Bee tuna.

And the BOGO deal on CVS brand batteries continues from last week.
