A couple of days ago, I was doing a small transaction at Walgreens and I received a Catalina coupon for 5,000 extra Balance Rewards Points on a $15.00 purchase! The Catalina coupon is valid for three days after you receive it, and it varies by person.

I earned the extra 5,000 Balance Rewards Points when I bought Almay, aspirin, Bic pens, Wet n Wild and Herbal Essences, and my shopping trip was a moneymaker. Check it out:
