Shopping at Walgreens can be tricky, especially with the new Walgreens Balance Rewards Program. One of the best ways to minimize your out-of-pocket expense is to roll Register Rewards transactions with Balance Rewards transactions. Keep in mind, you cannot earn Balance Rewards Points in a transaction in which you are redeeming Balance Rewards Points. However, you can earn Points when you redeem Register Rewards, and you can earn Register Rewards when you redeem Balance Rewards Points!

This post shows you how to earn and redeem Balance Rewards Points and Register Rewards given this week’s sales. Be sure to ask your store how many transactions they will allow; many stores allow three.

 

TRANSACTION #1 (Earn Register Rewards)

If you already have Register Rewards or Balance Rewards Points, you can use those to pay for the first transaction for a lower out-of-pocket expense. Remember that you may need to add filler items. You must have as many (or more) products in your transaction as you have manufacturer coupons and Register Rewards used as payment.
