Walgreens Balance Rewards Points Expiration Dates Have Been Extended
Calling all Walgreens shoppers!
Walgreens recently sent out an email stating that they are pausing expiration dates for Balance Rewards points through June 2020 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic!
So if you have Balance Rewards points set to expire anytime between 4/1/2020 through 6/1/2020 (these would have been earned 4/1/2019 – 6/1/2019), they will now expire on 6/30/2020 instead. Note that all points earned outside of this window will continue to expire on a rolling 12-month basis.
For more information, look for an email from Walgreens with the subject line “Stay focused on what matters. We’ll look after your points.” from the email address Walgreens@e.walgreens.com.
As a reminder, you can redeem points online at Walgreens.com once you accumulate 1,000 points. On the Payment Options screen of the checkout process, just use the dropdown menu to select your rewards redemption value and you can choose to redeem all, some, or none of your points. And now is a great time to shop on Walgreens.com since all orders ship for free!
If you prefer to shop at your local Walgreens but don’t want to physically head into the store, keep in mind that additional products are available for purchase at the pharmacy drive-thru. Just pull up and ask for a menu of shoppable items, including household goods, cough/cold and pain relief, grocery items, baby formula and medical supplies. Tell the cashier your order (no need to preorder or leave your car), and they’ll assemble it and get you on your way!
