Shopping at Walgreens can be tricky, especially when trying to roll rewards! One way to minimize the out-of-pocket expense is to roll Register Rewards transactions with Balance Rewards Points transactions. (Am I speaking a different language? Check out the KCL Walgreens 101 page for the full scoop on all things Walgreens.)
