Duane Reade Balance Rewards Program Translates Into Easy Savings At The Register

A few weeks ago, I talked about the new Walgreen’s Balance Rewards Program.  Well I just recently learned that Duane Reade stores will also be participating in the the program.  Talk about a win-win situation since I have access to both stores!  Introducing the Duane Reade Balance Rewards Program

Duane Reade used to have their own program called the Flex Rewards program.  As of September 16th however, that program was converted to the Balance rewards program.   Switching over to the new Balance Rewards program is super easy.  Simply visit any Duane Reade store and any sales associate can help you. You can also call (855) 225-0400 to speak with a customer service representative.

How it works

Just to re-cap, using this system, customers earn points for their purchases that translate into direct savings at the check-out counter. Because we all lead busy lives, the designers have made it easy to take advantage of these benefits without any hassle. Read on for useful information about the program.

First you have to register for the program.  Once a person is registered with Duane Reade Balance Rewards, they are eligible earn points on marked items throughout the store.

Remember, if you don’t sign up, you can’t claim the rewards. In its most basic form, this allows customers to get points each and every time they shop at Duane Reade.

In addition, the program offers several other special benefits. you’ll get 10 points for every $1 spent on over-the-counter items such as non-prescription vitamins, cough, cold, pain or sleep medication in store.

Walk with Walgreens is a very special feature of the program is designed specifically to reward loyal customers just for leading healthy lifestyles. You’ll need to join both Balance Rewards and Walk with Walgreens, and then link your memberships to start earning points. Once you are signed up with the program, all you need to do is register to claim 10 points for every mile you walk. The company offers this special deal because they believe strongly in promoting healthy living. This is Walgreens’s way of promoting health and fitness among their customers.

One thing I really like about the program is that you can easily keep track of your points.  You can tell right away if you received points for a certain item by looking at the bottom of your receipt.  You can also access your points on your smartphone via the Walgreen’s app.

In addition, customers can sign up online, or by phone, or you can download the free Walgreen’s mobile app and register via your smart phone. If you already shop at Duane Reade, taking advantage of this easy new program is a great way to get cash back as a reward for your loyalty. If you shop somewhere else, you might consider switching to Duane Reade where your business and your healthy lifestyle translate directly into lower prices at the register.
