Other Things You Should Know About Walgreens
The following are some other information you should have about using your Walgreens account;

In-store ordering is Walgreens’ convenient shopping option where the company’s associate helps customers order products in the store, and the products can be shipped to your home or another store. You will receive an “Order Request Form” once your order is submitted, and you must bring this form with you to pay for the order.
You can combine your product order with a contact lens order but keep in mind they will be shipped separately. Shipping rates will be charged separately, especially if you want an overnight expedited shipment.
For in-store ordering, Walgreens will accept cash payments, gift cards, checks, debit cards, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover Network. You can check your in-store order status online. To return your in-store order, you must present your registered receipt or the receipt that arrives with your order at the store.

Prescription medications are always eligible for flexible spending dollars. You will need to sign up to access a printable record of your Walgreens prescriptions to enjoy such eligibility.
Many of your local in-store products are also eligible for FSA reimbursement. These eligible products are normally marked with “F” on your receipt.
3. Ordering Your Contact Lenses
To order contact lenses, you can either call the toll-free number and place your order, or you make it online.
You don’t need a copy of your prescription to order contact lenses, but you must be sure of the exact brand type. You can order a contact lens for just one eye, but you need to have a piece of prescription information for the right eye. To complete the order, de-select the unaffected eye and add the lens for the affected eye to your shopping cart.
You may want to make separate orders if you are choosing different contact lenses for different eyes. You will need your prescription to complete these orders. You may order contact lenses for other people, like your child, as long as you have their prescriptions.
Your eye prescriber may call Walgreens’ toll-free number to order your contact lenses. If your contact lens prescription has changed, you need to log into your Walgreens account and go to the contact lens center home page to place a new order. Walgreens will have to contact your prescriber for confirmation before the new order is placed.
If you enter an incorrect contact lens prescription, you should notify your prescriber, who can correct the information, or call Walgreens toll-free number.
You can’t place a new order directly if your contact lens prescription has expired. You need to see your optician and get your prescription renewed. You can place a new order once your prescriber has written a new prescription for you. Legally, Walgreens is unable to fill any expired eye prescriptions.
It is important to have all vital information about Walgreens before you sign up and become an account holder. You should know about paying for your products with insurance, for instance. In such cases, you may have to contact your insurance service provider for reimbursement as Walgreens may not accept some form of insurance coverage. You should also be aware of certain sales taxes applicable to some Walgreens products. You must be aware of shipping restrictions on certain products, such as contact lenses. If you have to cancel any order, you should do so before the shipping commences; Walgreens may not accept certain cancellations after shipping begins.
