Walgreens Balance Rewards Points Program Changes
Update: Check your email for an explanation of the changes PLUS a possible link to a coupon to earn a 5,000 points (=$5) reward when you spend $.01 on eligible items. Thanks, John in the Giant Eagle Facebook group! Do you participate in the Walgreens Balance Rewards Points Program? It’s a program Walgreens offers shoppers to earn points that can be redeemed as cash discounts off your purchases. You earn points by making purchases, special offers for specific purchases, getting prescriptions filled at Walgreens, and a few other way listed on their website. You may combine manufacturer coupons, rebate app offers, and Balance Rewards Points Offers to maximize your savings. Starting November 4, the program redemption tiers will change. Instead of being able to redeem up to $50 (with points you have earned), the maximum redemption amount per transaction will be $5. Whoa! That’s a huge difference.
If you have a ton of points saved, like I do, then get to spending them before November 4 if you want to be able to redeem more than $5 in a transaction. Get the Walgreens Balance Rewards Points Program Changes details below.
