As of May 6, 2019, Walgreens has changed its popular Balance Rewards again, namely customers can now redeem a maximum of 50,000 points in a single transaction — see below. With a Walgreens seemingly on every other corner, finding bargains and deals is easier (and more convenient) than you might think at the ubiquitous drugstore.
