Hey, Walgreens shoppers! Get ready for big changes with the drugstore’s popular and long-running loyalty program, Balance Rewards. Actually, Walgreens just ended the program and launched a whole new program, myWalgreens. The new program is much more simplified — basically, earn Walgreens Cash for just about every purchase. No more need to keep track of your points or add digital point offers to your account.
For existing Balance Rewards members, join by January 31 to keep any existing rewards. If you don’t meet the deadline, the account will be closed and any existing points will be lost.
Just like Balance Rewards, membership in myWalgreens is required to receive sale prices.
In the new program…
Earn 1% in Walgreens Cash on all purchases. For every $100 spent, earn $1 in Walgreens Cash. (Exclusions apply.)
Earn 5% in Walgreens Cash on Walgreens-branded products. For every $100 spent on Walgreens-branded products, earn $5 in Walgreens Cash.
Once you’ve earned $1 or more in Walgreens Cash, it can be redeemed on your next purchase in-store or online. The Walgreens Cash is simply used as payment toward your purchase.
In addition, the new program promises personalized deals and product recommendations.
There are a few FAQs about the new program and you can review them here.
