Walgreens is revamping its rewards program! Sign up to keep your Balance Reward Points!

Walgreens has now opened its new rewards program, myWalgreens, for sign-up. The popular Balance Rewards Points program will be phased out as of January 21st, 2021, and you’ll need to sign up for the new program in order to keep all your reward points.

We’re already seeing the change reflected in Walgreens ads, so read on for more details!

The new program is designed to make tracking easier! Instead of 10 points for every $1 spent, myWalgreens members will earn “Walgreens Cash”. On most purchases, you’ll earn a 1% Walgreens Cash reward (same value as Balance Reward points), with 5% back offered on Walgreens-branded products. You’ll also have the opportunity to unlock bonus rewards on sale items and even earn health bonuses!

You will need to have been a myWalgreens member to unlock sale prices, but you will be able to do contactless checkout with new digital receipts and wallet in the new program. You can sign up with just a phone number, ZIP code and name to unlock sale prices, but you will need to add an email address in order to redeem rewards.

Walgreen’s popular Beauty Enthusiast program, which earned customers 10% back on beauty, skin, and hair care purchases, was also discontinued on October 31. Beauty rewards will now be rolled into the myWalgreens program, earning 1% back in Walgreens Cash (or 5% back on Walgreens-branded beauty items).

Customers can also expect to receive personalized deals on beauty products, invites to beauty sampling events at your local Walgreens cosmetics department, and more under the new myWalgreens program.

Here’s how to keep your earned Balance Reward Points…

Even though your current Balance Rewards points will soon be obsolete, they can be rolled over into the new rewards program. Please note that this will not happen automatically, though.

You must opt in to the new myWalgreens rewards program by January 31, 2021, or you will lose your Balance Rewards points. Registration is live now so make sure to visit myWalgreens.com to sign up for the new rewards program and get all those points transferred.

    I signed into my account tonight and it switched me over. Didn’t really have to do anything.

    Would this affect any of the couponing strategies

    Your cashiers in the Walgreens where i bought much today knew nothing about this program and seemed irked to have been asked. Says less, I think, about them than (as usual) about W’gr een’s abysmal inter-comunications
    With your people. Please fix that.

    It is all just data mining scheme. They already had your phone number with the old system but the new program requires an email address. Now that they will be able to cross reference a phone number with an email address, that info will be extremely valuable when they sell it. More so than just a phone number or email address alone. For reference, I worked in analytics for 20+ years.
