Wags balance rewards: bad moon arising

If you’ve been saving up Balance Rewards loyalty points in order to earn big discounts at Walgreens, you might want to start using them. Walgreens is planning to introduce changes that will make Balance Rewards points less valuable, and redeemable for smaller discounts.

Images of what are said to be Walgreens internal memos posted by store employees began circulating online a few days ago. And while Walgreens isn’t commenting in detail about the memos’ contents, it’s not disputing them, and it’s acknowledging some of the changes that are said to be on the way.

“Starting 11/4, the Balance Rewards program is simplifying redemption, making every 1,000 points = $1 of rewards,” the memos read. Plus, the memos go on, there will be a new “5,000 point ($5) maximum redemption per transaction”.

Well, that sucks donkey balls, doesn’t it?  Read the entire article and breakdown here.
