In past cycles, the announcement has happened between June and September. It needs to be voted by the board of directors. I think that it will probably not happen, but what a way to drive the stock up by getting millions of shares bought in a short time.

my '04 shares have yet to make a penny (they did a few years ago but was not ready to sell). I got a stash of cash I recycle each time Share Walgreen comes on and I sell October and then buy back when the bill is due in mid-November. My original '02 investment og $5000 is worth now $5,800 but I have gained close to $7,000 in cashed and cashable options.

This is the only thing I found on storenet about Share Walgreens.

----------
Welcome
September, 2011

Dear XXX,

Share Walgreens offers you the opportunity to take ownership in Walgreen Co. by purchasing stock during a fixed period of time, and receiving options to purchase additional shares of stock, in the future, at a fixed price.

This year is the fourth and final window of the 2008-2011 cycle. If you are eligible as of October 1, 2011, you can participate by contributing up to 2.5% of your annual base salary. A postcard will be mailed to your home in October confirming your eligibility. To enroll, submit your completed election form between October 1 and October 31, 2011.

Please review all the materials provided on this website. Before submitting your election, you may want to use the Payment Calculator function of the website. This useful tool is available to help you estimate your Share Walgreens loan payment based on variable information you enter. Please know that by using your Authenticator ID, password and Personal Key to access this website, all information transferred is secure.

It may be helpful to discuss Share Walgreens with your District Manager or supervisor, or call the Share Walgreens Hotline at 888-497-6701. Previous participants know Share Walgreens to be a worthwhile benefit and can give you information on the value of the program. I am confident that the purchase of stock and granting of options through the Share Walgreens program will be an important part of your financial planning for the future.

We know Share Walgreens is a unique program that no company in the industry offers. Over the past year we have been reviewing the Share Walgreens program to ensure it is providing a valuable benefit to eligible participants. To date no final decision has been made but we are looking at alternative plan designs for implementation in calendar year 2012.

Donít miss this opportunity to participate in Share Walgreens!

Sincerely,

Mark Englizian
Divisional Vice President,
Compensation and Benefits

There was a message last September that the program is being phased out.

I guess it doesn't matter, my options from 2000 had expired worthless in 2010. So not a valuable program as it was back in the booming 90s.

True, however the employees that participated in the 90s made akilling. Not just a 8 or $9 spread. Some "old timers" told me that with stock splits from the 92 options the purchase price was like 5 or 6 a share! But that was a different time then.
