I love when stores have a reward program that I can participate in. It’s a feature that makes me more willing to shop there, and it helps save me money. That’s big in my book!
On September 16, 2012 Walgreens will be launching their new Balance Rewards program.
You can pre-enroll in the program online or with their mobile app, and it’s super fast and easy to do. The program won’t be fully functional until the launch on September 16th, but if you pre-enroll you will be eligible to win 1 million reward points. That would be AWESOME!!
Once Balance Rewards launches you can use the program to shop and earn points, eventually redeeming them for rewards. Count me in! I signed up a few days ago when I first heard about it.
I don’t use a ton of apps on my phone, but I did download the Walgreens app and used it to sign up for Balance Rewards. It’s a pretty cool app with a lot of features and it was super easy to get signed up for their new program.
The app is FREE to download, and they have versions for iPhone, Android and Blackberry phones. Click here to download the app. The app has two main menu screens that display all the features. You can do quite a lot with this app. I was impressed!
Signing up for Balance Rewards is very easy using the app. If you already have a Walgreens.com account, you can use that username and password to log in. If you don’t, you can very easily make a new account through the app and join the rewards program.
After you sign up the app allows you to invite your friends to join. This gives you extra entries into their giveaway of 1 million reward points! You will get an email confirmation of your membership after joining, but the Balance Rewards features won’t be active or accessible on the app or their website until the official launch on September 16th.
After joining the Balance Reward program I decided to look more closely at some of the features on the app. It’s packed with great info that can help save you time and money! You can view the weekly ad, access mobile coupons, view the monthly Walgreens store coupons, refill prescriptions and even create and keep a shopping list!
I also checked out what shopping is like using the app. It was pretty easy. You can search by category (they even have sale items!) or do a product search. Once you find the items you need, you can use the app to order them and they’ll be delivered to your door. Shipping is free on orders over $25.00.
If you don’t want to order online and wait for the shipment to arrive, you can order your items and pick them up at a Walgreens near you.
I’ll provide more specific details about the Balance Rewards program closer to the launch, but if you’d love to get started with 1 million points in your account, enroll between now and the launch date of September 16th and you might be the lucky winner!
