    To NCVeteranswife, the points go onto your rewards card and yes, they can be used for future purchases. I am not certain of the cost of the shots at Walgreens because my insurance covered the cost of it.

    ncveteranswife - With the Walgreens Balance Reward program, when you earn 5000 points, you can use it towards $5 off your purchase. 500 points is the equivalent of 50 cents.

    losltp - no grocery stores match online prices. Best Buy matches online prices for select online retailers including Amazon.com, Apple.com, Bhphotovideo.com, Crutchfield.com, Dell.com, Frys.com, hhgregg.com, HP.com, HomeDepot.com, Lowes.com, Newegg.com, OfficeDepot.com, OfficeMax.com, Rakuten.com Shopping, Sears.com, Staples.com, Target.com, TigerDirect.com and Walmart.com. You can see all the details on their website here:

    ygrthanu: What can we do with the 500 points (put it toward a purchase)? Also, how much was the flu shot @ Walgreens?

    Hey Faye, I saw the sign at the mcdonalds on Poole rd this morning and saw a commercial about it this evening. They had 2 signs out. Im not a coffee drinker but I will be having some that week for free in the morning :)

    Just a reminder that if you go to Walgreens for your flu shot and give them your rewards card, you will get 500 points. (When I went there the girl at the register did not even know if it would so she tried it and it worked.)

    jdouglas13, here's that Catalina offer info:


    Plug in your own zip code to make sure, but it does look like this particular offer is also available at HT.
