How the Program will Work
Much like Rite Aid’s Wellness Plus program, you will be required to have a Balance Rewards card in order to receive the sale prices and to be able to use Walgreens store coupons, so you will definitely want to register for this new program.
Here is the Walgreens Balance Rewards Point conversion chart. At the moment, I do not know exactly how many points you were earn for the dollars that you spend, but I’m sure that we will know that very soon.
One more important detail to note is that if you’re redeeming your points for something that has a bonus points offer attached to it, you will not receive the bonus points.
Here is some more information about the program:
- Members can earn points for making healthy choices.
- Members may earn and redeem points both in-store and online.
- Exclusive benefits for AARP members.
- A customer-friendly expiration policy.
- Customers can join in one easy step in stores at the checkout or any photo kiosk, online at walgreens.com/balance or with their mobile devices and begin earning points immediately for their purchases.
- Members receive exclusive savings every week on popular products.
- Savings and points can be easily earned when members show their Balance Rewards card, provide their telephone number or scan their mobile phone.
- Members can easily access their point totals and see how many points they need until their next reward at checkout, online or through their mobile device
As of right now the Register Rewards program will continue in its current form. Register Rewards is seen as more of a couponing program, while Balance Rewards is intended to be a loyalty program. Both should be in place when the program is fully launched on September, 16th.

Balance Reward Giveaway
To celebrate the launch of this new program, Walgreens is also having a fun points giveaway!
When you pre-register for the Balance Rewards program before September 15th, you’ll be entered for a chance to win up to 1 million points in your Balance Rewards account! These points can be redeemed in Walgreens or online at Walgreens.com. You can also earn additional entries into the sweepstakes by referring your friends and family to pre-register for the program. If you prefer to register in-store, you can begin to do so on September 16th, but will not be eligible for the giveaway.
