Walgreens Coupons & Info

The Walgreens Company (NYSE:WAG) is the name that comes to mind when you think “drug retail.”  As of 2014, Walgreens is the largest drug retailing company in the USA with over 8217 stores spread across all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin islands.

Besides offering access to a world-class pharmacy, Walgreens also provides access to many other goods and services to its customers. Walgreens offers a large selection of consumer goods, health and wellness services and even a photo studio.

The story of Walgreens began in 1901, with a small-scale drugstore in Chicago, owned by Charles Walgreen Sr.. Over the next decade, Walgreens grew to four stores on the south side of Chicago. In 1922 Walgreen began operating stores away from residential areas, and in the mid-1920’s there were 44 stores across Minnesota, Missouri and Wisconsin. The company continued to grow over the decades, until finally maturing into the giant retailer it is today.

The Walgreen website is friendly, and easy to navigate on any platform. If you are a mobile user, Walgreens provides you with an option of downloading their smartphone app available for Apple, Android and Windows Phone customers. The “downloads” page can be found here.

Walgreens also has a rewards program in place for its most loyal customers. Balance Rewards members “get rewarded for living a happy, healthy, well-balanced life.” With Balance Rewards you will earn points when you buy featured items or engage in healthy behavior. These points can then be redeemed for monetary rewards. The breakdown of point reception is as follows:

5,000 points = $5

10,000 points = $10

18,000 points = $20

30,000 points = $35

40,000 points = $50

So, how exactly can you earn these points? Balance Rewards members earn points when purchasing items from the Walgreens online or physical stores. Points are also awarded for making healthier choices. For example 20 points are awarded for every mile walked, ran or cycled. Points are awarded for every weigh in, blood pressure test or a blood glucose test. Walgreen rewards you for monitoring and taking care of your body. 500 points are awarded for each prescription that you will. For more information regarding the Balance Rewards program, you can take a look at the loyalty site found here.
