#cbias #Balance Rewards Disclosure

Are you trying to walk a certain number of steps every day?

Or are you a runner, trying to run a certain amount each week?  

OR (I think this is most people!) are you trying to manage your weight?

Did you know Walgreens will give you rewards (rewards you can use at Walgreens) for making these healthy choices?!  I know, how cool is that, right?  How, you ask?  Check it out!

Q: What is Balance Rewards for healthy choices?

A: Balance Rewards for healthy choices gives you points for staying well, whether you track walking, running, cycling, weight management, blood pressure, or blood glucose.

Earn 20 points for each mile, 20 points when you add a weigh-in, and 20 points for blood pressure or blood glucose readings at (subject to daily and monthly limits). You can log your personal wellness goals, track progress, earn badges and connect with the Balance Rewards community to stay motivated. You can also sync with leading fitness and health devices & apps to track activity and earn points automatically!

As you know, I’m a techie, gadget-girl and so that last sentence, “You can also sync with leading fitness and health devices” grabbed my attention.  Wow I can earn points a-u-t-o-m-a-t-i-c-a-l-l-y, by doing what I”m already doing!  It doesn’t get better than that.  We all know the rewards of exercising are better health, enjoying life, etc. blah, blah, blah, right? But we all say, where’s the money?  NOW, you can earn tangible rewards.  That you can use on things you need every day…. or FUN STUFF YOU WANT!  Or stuff that helps you exercise better, like armbands and water bottles… or pedometers… or energy bars… What would you buy with your Walgreens Balance Rewards?

  • you can connect health monitoring devices to automatically sync with the Balance Rewards!  I know I keep saying, “It’s Easy!” but it really is as easy as 1-2-3, if you are just now purchasing the device.  If you already have it, you jump straight to “3”!

#cbias #Balance Rewards Screenshot Devices and Apps 1



I am already using three devices/apps (Fitbit Flex, Fitbit Aria, and RunKeeper) that are connectable to Walgreens Balance Rewards.  If you want to see if your device is supported, click on “Connect Device”, select “All” and you will see a listing.  The manufacturers currently on the list are BodyMedia, Fitbit, iHealth, Jawbone, and Withings.  All with various devices.  There is also a tab for “Apps” because you can currently sync with MapMyFitness, MyFitnessPal and RunKeeper.

You choose your device from the list and click on “Connect”.  Here is how I did it for my Fitbit Aria scale:

#cbias #Balance Rewards Screenshot Fitbit Aria 4I clicked “Connect” on the screen above and that took me to a login for Fitbit to give permission to Balance Rewards by Walgreens to access my profile and data (see the screenshot below).

That was it!  Now, my Fitbit Aria scale and my Fitbit Flex will sync automatically to Walgreens Balance Rewards.  I did the same thing for RunKeeper.  It took a few hours for the activity to appear, but this is what it looks like on my activity listing page (see below).  Cool, isn’t it?!  My husband doesn’t go to bed until his Fitbit says he’s done his 10,000 steps every day.  A monitoring device truly does keep us accountable and motivates us to get in our steps.  Now we’re going to earn rewards to spend at Walgreens for doing it!

But are you saying, “SHOW ME THE MONEY!”  Okay, okay, here is the points activity on my Balance Rewards showing the points I’ve earned so far.  I can’t wait until the per mile points show up!  I’ll update this post when they do.
