I’m a Southern Belle, honey. There is no getting away from it or around it. The things I love range from fried chicken and sweet tea to barbecue ribs ( I am from Memphis, baby!) and sweet tea. Â Did I mention the sweet tea, though?Â Seriously, as I getÂ older making healthier eating choices has become more important. These days I have to limit my fried chicken, ribs and sweet tea. Yes, even the sweet tea…
In my journey to live a healthy and active life, Walgreens has always been in the equation. As a child, my mom and other family members ALWAYS went there for health and wellness items. Whether it was for witch hazel to reduce swelling, hydrogen peroxide to pull out infection, a heating blanket to sooth menstrual cramps or to pick up a prescription, Walgreens has always been there.
When I found out about their Balance Rewards program, I was like #WINNING! Not only could I get the health and wellness items I need, but I could possibly earn reward points with my purchases,Â too! You playing, right? As if this wasn’t enough, Walgreens upped the ante by rewarding Balance Rewards members with points for making healthy choices.
How? Glad you asked.
More importantly, users can connect devices and apps to the portal. For instance, do you use MyFitness Pal to track your meals and exercise? Well, you can connect the two accounts and earn points for rewardable activities like walking when recorded. If you use tracking devices like the Fitbit, Jawbone, Misfit Shine and others, then your steps/walking will be automatically uploaded to the Walgreens system and you get your balance rewards points.
As an added bonus,Â users earn 250 bonus #BalanceRewards points when a device or app is connected to their account and 20 points per activity (e.g., walk, run, weigh tracking, blood pressure and glucose testing).
As a part of my daily wellness routine, I wake up and walk for at least 30 minutes. If I’m feeling extremely stressed, I take an extra walk after the sun goes down. It feels good to know that Walgreens continues to support myÂ health goals while offering me rewards I can use on other health and wellness items in-store.
Head over now and check out the Balance Rewards program and connect your health devices and apps to the healthy choices program or manually enter them. However you enter them, just enter them. Save while doing the things that you do anyway! Â Win-Win!
