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

This post shows 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.

(1) 1,000 Points = $1.00
(2) 2,000 Points = $2.00
(3) 3,000 Points = $3.00
(4) 5,000 Points = $5.00
(5) 10,000 Points = $10.00
(6) 18,000 Points = $20.00
(7) 30,000 Points = $35.00
(8) 40,000 Points = $50.00
