Jessica Garringer’s Coupon Deals of the Week

Walgreens launches loyalty program

Walgreens has created a new loyalty program for customers called the Balance Rewards Program (BRP). This program does not replace their Register Rewards program. This program rewards you for shopping at Walgreens by giving you points for the items you buy and the healthy behaviors you have.

These points go onto a card and can be redeemed with as little as 5,000 points (the equivalent of $5) or you can collect and save your points for a bigger bang, such as 40,000 points (the equivalent of $50) or more. Points will not expire as long as you shop at Walgreens at least once every six months and redeem your points within three years. Register Rewards can be used in conjunction with the Balance Rewards Program, as well. You can also earn points by doing things that promote good health, such as getting a flu shot or joining the Walgreens walking program.

To get points, you must have a card. Sign up for this new program by visiting your local Walgreens store or going to An app is also available for smart phones.
