Have you heard the good news? Walgreens has updated their Balance Rewards policy! Now, you can redeem Balance Rewards points AND earn them in the same transaction! Before, if you used points to pay for items that gave you points, you would NOT earn points but with these new changes, now you will. Here comes the BUT…….it will only be on certain types of transaction. for example, if you have to buy 2 items to earn 1,000 Balance Rewards Points, you CAN use points AND still earn your points. BUT if the points has a threshold like spend $30 earn 10,000 Balance Rewards points and you use points to pay, you will NOT earn your points. Some change is good! You can read the entire Balance Rewards Terms & Conditions HERE
Here are the changes that you are going to want to know:
- You will earn and redeem Balance Rewards Points in the same transaction for unit offers(IE Buy 2 earn 1,000 points)
- You will earn and redeem Balance Rewards Points in the same transaction when paying with store credit.
- You will not earn and redeem Balance Rewards Points in the same transaction for threshold offers. (IE spend $30 earn 10,000 points)
- You will not earn EveryDay Points when you pay using Balance Rewards Points or store credit. For example, if you buy $10 in products and pay for half using your Balance Rewards Points, you will earn EveryDay Points on the other half of the total only.
