Finding Spiders and Savings with Balance Rewards from Walgreens

I have always been a Walgreens fan.  I already love to shop with their Walgreens rewards and was excited to hear I could save even more with their new Balance Rewards program.  We were looking for a few more decorations for our upcoming spider party where we are going to learn all about real spiders.  With all the seasonal ideas and merchandise out now I knew it would be the perfect time of year to easily find some spider decorations.

We settled on some medium black spiders and a larger hairy spider.  Austin loved the larger spiders.  They were a little too real for me as we actually have real hairy tarantulas here in Arkansas.  (It makes my hair raise just thinking about playing with them!

We had a great time in the store!  We were on a mission for spiders and we found them!  They had tiny spiders, big spiders even giant spiders!

You can sign-up for the Balance Rewards online or in store.  We decided to see what the process would be like in store, although truthfully I was hoping for it to be super easy since my kids tend to be restless at the checkout.  I was pleasantly surprised, it was a breeze!  I had to enter my phone number and birth date and that was it!  She scanned my new card and linked it up to my phone number.  You don’t even need to have your card with you to shop, once you sign up just put in your phone number in and collect your points.

It is easy to see how all the savings really add up.  All throughout the store signs were posted with how many Balance Reward points you would rack up by purchasing that specific product.  I really enjoy Method brand soaps and they were giving 5,000 reward points for a combined purchase of $25 of select brands, Method brand included.  That is like getting a $5 coupon valid on your next purchase, combine that with coupons and you can have an even sweeter deal!   Once you reach 5,000 points that is equal to $5.

So many of us have an online Walgreens account, you can even connect your existing account with your new Balance Rewards card.  They even have an app where you can order prescription refills, view weekly sales, savings, and shop right from your phone.  You can earn 500 points for each prescription refilled (Arkansas however is excluded from collecting points for Rx refills due to state laws.)  If you are a member of their Walk With Walgreens program, you will also earn 10 points for every mile you log.  What an awesome incentive to be rewarded to walk!   I can tell this will be one of my favorite loyalty cards to use.

We will be having our spider party this weekend and I can’t wait to use our new spiders and some our favorite yummy treats we purchased at Walgreens to make it even better!
