Please note that this service will be slowly rolled out to all Walgreens locations, and your local store may not offer this service for several weeks.

Q: How does the store know I have arrived to pickup my order? A: When you receive your final email letting you know that the store has pulled your order, there will be a link at the bottom to click on that states "I'm Here". You will need to click on that link and you will be required to select where you are picking up the order (curbside or drive thru) as well as the make, model, and color of your vehicle. Once you submit that information, you will see a confirmation page that the store will be bringing your order to you.
Q: Where do I pickup my order? A: This will depend on where you opted to pickup your order. If you selected curbside, you will park in any available parking spot at the store and the employee will bring your order out to you. If you selected drive thru pickup, you will proceed to the pharmacy drive thru window to pickup your order. Please note that if you have larger items such as posters and canvas prints that you will need to utilize curbside pickup, as the larger items will not fit through the drive thru window. If you had selected drive thru pickup and your items do not fit through the window, the store will ask that you pull around to the front of the store to pickup your item(s).
Q: Do I have to prepay for my photo order? A: Yes, you have to prepay for your order. When you select to pickup your order via curbside or drive thru, you will be required to provide your credit card number for the transaction. Please note that your credit card will not be charged until you have picked up your order. Additionally, you will not be entering your information into the photo website, rather you will enter the information in the curbside/drive thru checkout flow.
Q: What is the difference between curbside and drive thru pickup? A: If you select curbside, you will park in an open spot in the store's parking lot and an employee will bring the item(s) to your vehicle. If you select drive thru pickup, the store employee will bring the order to the drive thru pickup window and place the order through the slot for you to pickup.
Q: Can I add an alternate pickup person? A: At this time, there isn't an option to add an alternative pickup person. But, don't worry! As long as the person picking up the order has the bar code (found in the final order ready email) they will not have any issues picking up the order.

A: In order to receive Balance Rewards points for your photo order, you must enter the phone number attached to your Balance Rewards account when you are entering your information during the curbside/drive thru pickup checkout process.

Q: I wasn't able to get to the store within 24 hours of requesting curbside/drive thru pickup for my order. What happens next? A: Any photo orders that are not picked up will be placed in the photo departments so that you can pick them up at a later date. If you would like to utilize the curbside/drive thru feature again, you will need to locate the final order ready email and through the process again of clicking the "I'm Here" link. Or, you can go into the store to pickup your order. If you purchased retail product items, they will be placed back on the shelves.
