I'm new to keeping flowers.... I bought a pot of begonias at the store today. Any tips on what to do with them to keep them alive? Thank you!

Welcome to the world of flowers. You did not say if begonia was "houseplant" type or a fibrous begonia for outdoors. In any case the following should help. Keep evenly moist. Feed biweekly, but withhold from tuberous types during dormant season. Tuberous type - withhold water and store nearly dry at approx. 50degrees F. until time to replant. Any fibrous rooted begonia (except rhizomatous types) can be cut back freely following a period of heavy bloom. Can go outside, also tuberous, but morning sun only & light shade rest of day. Repot once a year in good potting soil. Lift tubers and bring indoors - die if frozen.
