Starting Sunday (9/16/12) Walgreens will be launching a new program called Balance Rewards. There has been a lot of rumors that this will ultimately lead to the demise of Register Rewards but Walgreens so far is maintaining the claim that Register Rewards are NOT going away. While this may be true I do think we will see less of them and more Bonus Rewards offers.

Official News Release from Walgreens:

Online enrollment for Balance Rewards will begin after Labor Day on Thursday, September 6. Beginning that day, customers can join Balance Rewards online at Walgreens.com/balance or via the Walgreens mobile app. The national launch of Balance Rewards remains Sunday, September 16. That’s when customers can easily enroll in-store, online or via the mobile app and begin earning points and special savings, and start redeeming rewards.

We’ve received a lot of questions about Register Rewards and have seen a lot of misinformation about the program online. To clarify, Register Rewards will continue in its current form for the foreseeable future. Register Rewards is a couponing program while Balance Rewards is a comprehensive loyalty program that offers exclusive savings and the opportunity to earn points and instantly redeem rewards. We hope you will join Balance Rewards in September and experience the many features of the program for yourself.

For those taking advantage of the online enrollment period, Walgreens is running the Balance Rewards 10 Million Point Giveaway September 6 – 15th. During this time, customers who join Balance Rewards online or through the mobile app will have a chance to enter to win. Customers can earn additional entries into the sweepstakes by referring friends and family to the program. 10 Grand Prize Winners will each win 1 million points in their Balance Rewards account that can be redeemed at Walgreens stores, Walgreens.com, or Duane Reade stores.

Here is some more information on this new program:

  •  The Register Reward program will continue in its current form for the foreseeable future.
  • You can sign up for the Balance Rewards program online here.
  • The program will launch on Sunday, September 16. You can sign up in-store or online.
  • Balance Rewards members will receive savings every week on popular products. Savings and points can be earned by showing your Balance Rewards card, providing your phone number or scanning your mobile phone.
  • You can earn points by purchasing items in the store. Points earned can later be redeemed for Walgreens rewards (gift cards).
  • Exclusive benefits for AARP members.
  • Members can earn points for making healthy choices, such as getting an immunization or participating in Walk with Walgreens (walk.walgreens.com).
  • A customer-friendly expiration policy on the points. They will not expire as long as members remain active by shopping at Walgreens at least once every six months and redeem their points within three years.
