Balance Rewards for Walgreens and Duane Reade Stores
Balance Rewards is the rewards program for Walgreens and Duane Reade drug stores. Membership is required to receive the advertised sale prices on items in store.
Points can be earned by making qualifying purchases with the card. For example, the weekly ad may advertise to an offer to buy two certain products and receive 1000 points.
Points may also be earned by filling qualifying prescriptions and participating in the Balance Rewards for Healthy Choices program, where you may be awarded points for tracking certain things as walking or blood pressure testing.
Digital coupons may also be loaded onto the card for in-store use. In addition, AARP members may get exclusive rewards.
Points may be redeemed for dollars off a purchase at a rate ranging from 5,000 = $5.00 to a maximum of 40,000 = $50.
Points expire 3 years after being earned. Points will also be forfeited if the card has not been used in 6 months.
More information on the Balance Rewards program can be found on Walgreens' website here or in the help section here . (Note that on the Help page, Balance Rewards for Healthy Choices is referred to as Steps with Balance Rewards, a previous name.)
