I am really excited about Walgreen’s new Balance Rewards card! I think this will bring a whole new way to save at the drugstore! We have been told the Register Rewards are staying and will not change at this time so don’t get nervous about that right now. All you do is go to Walgreen’s and sign up for your card. I do not recommend signing up online because then you have to request a physical card and trust all your points will be transferred correctly. (BUT:: ****You have pre enroll to get in on the giveaway for 1 million points that is going on over at Walgreens.com! Save, earn, and redeem starting September 15th!)
How do you get points?
You earn points every time you make a qualifying purchase using your Balance Rewards card, key fob, or mobile app. If you forget any of these tracking devices, you can provide your phone number in store at the register. You will earn bonus points on a variety of items across the store each week and 500 points on every prescription you fill in the pharmacy. Only prescriptions picked up in-store are eligible to earn points at this time. You will also earn 10 points for every mile you walk in the Walk with Walgreens program. Due to state and federal laws, points cannot be earned on some items. Points will not be awarded to anyone who currently or was at any time in the 6 months prior to purchasing a Pharmacy item covered by Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare or any other government-funded healthcare program. Pharmacy items must be purchased at participating Walgreens Drugstore, Rxpress, Duane Reade, or Walgreens Pharmacy locations (“Participating Stores”) to earn points. Excludes Pharmacy items purchased from AR, NJ or NY pharmacies and prescriptions transferred to a Participating Store located in AL, MS, OR or PR. For Terms and Conditions, visit Walgreens.com/Balance.
It really seems like an easy program and will not be complicated to use. The one thing you have to remember is you can not use points and gain points in the same transaction. You can use your card online and in store and gain points on qualifying items. Points expire in 3 years or if your Balance Rewards account in not used in a 6 month period. This can be used with coupons and register rewards at this time!
You can redeem your points at any Walgreens or Duane Reade store during a purchase or online at Walgreens.com with as little as 5,000 points. The more points you accumulate, the larger the reward. See the complete redemption chart below.
Get the mobile app that makes it convenient to shop and save. Then track your points on-the-go.
