walgreens-logoWe have a really nice update with some changes to the Walgreens Balance Rewards program. For the first time in a long time, Walgreens is making some changes that are GOOD for us couponers!

Now you can earn and redeem points in the same transaction, but there are some restrictions:
1) The deals where you can earn points and redeem at the same time are “unit” deals. For example, BUY TWO of something and EARN 2000 Balance Rewards points.
2) You WILL NOT be able to earn points for a “threshold” deal while redeeming points. For example, a BUY $30 of something and EARN 10,000 Balance Rewards points deal will not work if you are redeeming points on the same transaction.
3) You can still earn Everyday Points if redeeming points in the transaction, however your points earned will be reduced proportionally by the points redeemed on the transaction. For example, if $5 would have counted towards earning Everyday Points but you redeemed $2 of points to pay for the transaction, you will only earn Everyday Points on the net $3 purchased.
