Walgreens is launching a new loyalty rewards program this week, called Balance Rewards (BR). Details are still a bit sparse, but for now we know that when you purchase certain advertised products each week, you will be rewarded balance points. These points will accrue and can be “cashed in” for in-store credit.
A minimum of 5,000 points is required to cash in for a $5 credit. 40,000 points is equal to a $50 credit.
At least for now, Walgreens will also still feature weekly and monthly Register Rewards (RR) deals.
Stay tuned – as I have more real-life information about how this program will affect your Walgreens deal shopping, I’ll be sure to share.
