    My favorite method of earning miles has been going through the American Air Aadvantage shopping portal and then ordering from Drugstore.com. Unfortunately August 13 is your last day to order. Load up now while you have the chance. Same for United or Delta. Remember to go to the airlines shopping site to access Drugstore.com. J W

    Where did you get this information? It doesn't seem to be true. The Drugstore.com dollars promotion (5% back on purchases) is ending on the 13th but there's no indication that the site is closing.

    Well, I just searched 'drugstore.com closing' and got positive hits. Both Drugstore.com and Beauty.com sites are closing by the end of September2016.

    No way! I didn't know anything. This has to be a massive work for all the walgreens worker team, I mean Drugstore.com and Beauty.com are 2 different markets, they bought the sites to have the control of the competition. They need to really make a good understanding to their actual customers.

    Crazy, lets see how it goes

    This is a really good source
    “Over the past year, we have been focusing on building new omnichannel capabilities on Walgreens.com…,” Walgreens spokesman Phil Caruso said. “After careful consideration, we have decided to shut down drugstore.com and Beauty.com. We intend to focus on Walgreens.com.”

    Well, that sucks. Used to be a great source of miles for small list of things we bought on a semi-regular basis.

    Have the non competes expired? Hopefully the next generation sites are being created as we speak.

    Just got the e-mail message that items purchased after September 1 are sold without the ability to return.

    Sorry for my original post. I found the notice a bit confusing. Apparently we can continue to get miles for purchases until the end of September when Drugstore.com shuts down.
