I'm exhausted just reading how many different ways to earn points. Walking the dog qualifies I hope!

I really don't go to Walgreens (much prefer supporting local businesses), but this sounds like it could be a decent motivator for some people to get more active.

I didn't know you could earn points this way, I thought it was just purchases to build them

It sounds really good. Of course we do not have those shops in the UK but I try to use the Saintsbury's reward card whenever I can.

Yes, but unless the dog has it's own card, only you will get the points.

I am more prone to exercise if I feel like i'm getting paid for it, even if it's in pennies.

Check out the website. You won't get rich on points, but it's a good steady way to earn and doesn't require you to buy anything.

It's not a store I buy a lot of things in, but occasionally I do find some good deals on sale. And anything to save money helps. Besides, it's a motivation to get me to walk. And if I can earn the equivalent of 2 cents to step on the scales, that's a good motivator to lose weight.

Very vital information you have here. It looks like a give back scheme

It is a good thing that they are encouraging a Healthy Lifestyle.

I do have a Walgreens card but I prefer the extra points card at CVS. I know it isn't the same but I love my savings. I have $5 off $15 right now so I am going to get my coupons together and load up on TP. :)

It's a good way to get a little bit of a discount.

OldRoadsOnceTraveled wrote on January 9, 2015, 11:49 PM

Yes, it is. It's nice to see a store that isn't all about making money.

OldRoadsOnceTraveled wrote on January 9, 2015, 11:52 PM

I've gotten cash back from CVS before, but it's been awhile since I bought enough in one period to qualify.

I love bonus points! I may not do them all, but I do many.

OldRoadsOnceTraveled wrote on January 10, 2015, 8:55 PM

Me, too. Kroger is my favorite. I get $1 in my i-wireless account for every 100 points. I've got enough in my account right now to pay next month's phone bill tonight.

I wasn't aware of this, thanks for the info.
