Walgreens FIRST LOYALTY CARD! “ADIOS” Register Rewards…”HOLA” Balance Rewards!


Walgreens  FIRST LOYALTY CARD is here! The Register Rewards program at Walgreens will soon be history! It will be replaced with the “Balance Rewards”  which will be efective as of  September 2nd (online registration only):

Check out some of the details about this new Program:

  • Sign up online as of September 2nd or in-store starting 9/16.
  • Members will receive exclusive savings every week on popular products.
  • Redeem points in-store or online immediately, or save them.
  • Bonus Points expire after 36 months from date of earning or after 6 months of no activity
  • You must be a Balance Rewards member to get the sale price
  • You will be able to manage your account with the Walgreens mobile app or on-line
  • You can also earn points for making healthy choices such as participating in the Walk With Walgreens program, or purchasing prescriptions (in select states).

You will not be allowed to redeem your points and earn them on the same product.  For example, if you have 5,000 points and you want to redeem them to save $5 and you purchase 3 items which each will reward you with 500 points,  you can use the 5,000 but will not earn an additional 1,500 at the same time. There are also restrictions as to what you can redeem your points towards.

Also, the value you earn will be reduced by the coupon used.  So whatever your potential point value would have been will be reduced to the after coupon value.

**WHAT IS BALANCE REWARDS?**Balance Rewards is a comprehensive loyalty program that offers easy enrollment, instant points and endless rewards, as well as ways to get, stay and live well at Walgreens.

As part of the nation’s largest drugstore chain, Balance Rewards has the potential to reach more consumers than any other existing consumer loyalty program in the country. There are more than 7,900 Walgreens drugstores across the country, serving nearly 6 million customers daily.
