When it comes to shopping, I am probably one of the World's WORST. I will get everything I possibly can at one store, and if that one store doesn't have what I need, its not uncommon for me to just “go without” for days and days until I am practically forced to go to another store. I'm busy. I have a lot on my plate. I hate dealing with other shoppers… whatever the reason, shopping is one of my least favorite things to do.
When I learned about the Walgreens App for my iPhone from #CBias I knew I was going to be hooked… you mean I can see ads; order photo prints; shop for food, household stuff, and beauty items…. and never leave the house?!! Plus I get to earn points towards huge discounts in their Balance Rewards Program?
The Walgreens #BalanceRewards Program is easy – and free – to sign up for and you earn points on everything you buy in the store. You can sign up now and download the app on your phone, and starting on September 16th everything you buy will earn towards coupons for more of the stuff you love. In fact, when you register for the Walgreens Balance Rewards Program you are entered to win one MILLION Bonus Points! That's a LOT of free stuff!
In addition to the App giving you some really awesome savings… you can easily shop from home in your pajamas (or from the treadmill as was my case this morning) and get the things you love quickly and easily delivered to your door.
My favorite part is the photo section where you can literally upload pictures directly from your phone to be printed and picked up in as little as one hour. Even cooler is that I can upload pictures from my phone, place the order with my Walgreens App – and my Grandma can go right to her local store and pick them up – already paid for and everything… This is dangerous people…. I take a zillion pictures….
I also loved – and signed up for of course – the Walk With Walgreens Program which rewards you for miles walked. Since I have begun the Naked Fitness Lifestyle I have been walking A LOT so this is yet another perk to all those miles walked!
But what really makes this app “dangerous” for me is the ability to shop with a few taps to the phone and voila. I was totally stoked to find that Walgreens now carries my “cure all” grapefruit seed extract which I recommend EVERYONE get this time of year (read here to find out why) but I got hooked in the “As Seen On TV” Section and well… $105 later….
You can see my entire shopping trip on my Google+ Album and see how I went from shopping for vitamins and eyeliner to buying a George Foreman grill….
In all seriousness, the Walgreens App is awesome for me – a busy mom and business owner who simply does not have the time to shop. I can easily shop, get photos printed, and even fill prescriptions from my phone… I mean, honestly… does it GET any more convenient than that?
You can sign up for the Walgreens Balance Reward Program by visiting their website and be entered the sweepstakes to win one million bonus points. Also be sure to Follow Walgreens on Twitter and Facebook for more specials and updates about their App and Rewards program.
So… any George Foreman recipes you want to share with me?!
