I’ve spent the week coughing, sneezing and hacking up a lung thanks to the cold A.J. caught and gave to me. Somehow, he bounced back quickly. Not so much for me. If I called you on the phone you’d mistake me for “Wheezy” from The Jeffersons. It’s going to be a long, hard cold & flu season if we’re already this sick in October. So I just stocked up on cold and flu medicines from my local Walgreens + earned Balance Rewards in its new loyalty program.
Tackle Cold & Flu Season
Before I headed to Walgreens I checked out the weekly sales flier. You’ll see what’s on sale, get suggestions on how to save more using manufacturer and Walgreens coupons, plus see how many Balance Rewards you’ll earn.
Coughing irritates me so much I wanted to stock up on cough medicine for daytime, nighttime and in between time. I stocked up on the Walgreens Brand.
I’m embarrassed to say we still use an “internal thermometer” when taking A.J.’s temperature. Walgreens sells a temple thermometer.
At the end of my experience shopping for cold & flu season at Walgreens, I’d earned 1,500 Balance Rewards. I’m 3,500 points away from earning $5 off a purchase.

How do you plan to spend the money you earn?
