I got this too and am a Premier Silver member. If you right click and open the first barcode in a new tab you can tell what the value will be based on the file name. Mine is $5 "20120926_Bucks_LPCode_5.jpg"

Will they tell you at store how much this is before you purchase or do you have to grab something have it scanned? Never done this before
Here are the instructions for the cashier, I assume you just have to ask them to check the value for you before you make a purchase.

CASHIER INSTRUCTIONS: Scan barcode to reveal offer
value. Note: eligible products, excluding tax, shipping and
handling, must be equal to or greater than certificate value
in order to redeem. One-time use only. 250,000 points: Call
toll-free number printed on receipt by 10/13/12.

Yeah with a right click mine says $5 too. The fine print says no purchase necessary to find out what it's worth, but you still have to go to a register at the B&M to verify the value of your cert to be sure, if you don't trust the right click.

Oh well, I am happy it's $5! I will find something to spend it on, going there anyway tomorrow to take my computer in for service plan repair.
