Important Update to the Walgreens Balance Rewards System

There is a new update to the Walgreens Balance Rewards program that all you Walgreens shoppers will want to be aware of. Initially, when the program first launched, we were allowed to purchase multiples of the same deal in the same transaction and earn points multiple times. Unfortunately this is no longer the case.

Walgreens recently made a system update is now giving points once per offer per transaction. You’ll now need to do separate transactions if you’re wanting to earn bonus points from purchasing multiples of the same deal.

For example, if there is a Balance Reward Deal that will give you 1,000 for each item you purchase and you want to get three of that item, you’ll need to do three transactions to get your 3,000 points. If you do one single transaction, you’ll only get 1,000 points added to your Balance Rewards point balance.

(Thanks Frugal Finders for this update!)

    Today I just purchased seven Naturmades in one transaction and received 21,000 points. When will the new rule take place?
