Okay, Boomer, we all know we need to make good decisions about what we put into our bodies and our fitness if we want to live long and healthy lives. As we grow older. our bodies begin to sag and bulge just about everywhere. You can do that with Walgreen’s Balance Rewards for healthy choices.
The older you get, the flabbier you become unless you take action to “arrest” that “not so attractive” development.
We all make a zillion excuses. I do. Come on, admit it, you do too, right?
“I’ll do it later, tomorrow, next year, . . in my next life.”
“I don’t have time to work out.”
“I won’t be caught dead with all those young hard bodies at the gym.”
The truth is; there are no excuses if you want to stay fit and active well into your 90’s and beyond.
It’s important to set specific health goals and hold yourself accountable if you want to succeed. Otherwise, you’ll grow bigger every year and your health will take a nosedive.

How to stay accountable with Walgreens Balance Rewards for healthy choices® app
Walgreens has devised a very well designed app that makes it easy for you to set realistic health goals and track them on your smartphone. That way you can update your progress from anywhere and earn Balance Rewards at the same time. Simply sign up online, or in a Walgreens store for an account, and then download the Walgreens Balance Rewards for healthy choices® app on your phone.
Don’t know what an app is?
Trust me. They’re very cool. An app is a self-contained program or piece of software designed to fulfill a particular purpose. They’re made primarily for mobile devices.
If you have a smartphone, iPhone, or Android) find out where your “apps” are located.
Once you’ve found them, search for the Google Play or Apple Store icon. Click on the icon and type “Walgreens” in the search bar. The app should come up immediately. Click install.
After installation, the app will create an icon on your phone. Click the Walgreens icon to open it up. You’ll see a screen that has all the services that Walgreens provides.
There are buttons that will let you connect with the pharmacy, find a store, check out coupons, order, and refill prescriptions, shop, make an appointment with the healthcare clinic, and more. You will be able to see your rewards balance on the app.
The app and tracking
Once I signed up and synchronized my Walgreens app, I discovered that I could add activity tracking devices that are available for purchase either in the store or on their website. Certain health-related apps will sync to your Walgreens account to record fitness and other activities and you will earn rewards when you use them.
While I was at Walgreens I saw a flashing message on the sign outside announcing that you could earn 500 balance reward points if you have a flu shot in the store. Don’t forget!
Nice to know.
I love that Walgreens is taking a proactive approach to improving the health of its customers through its excellent in-store services, website, and mobile app. If you’re interested in tracking your health goals to earn Balance Rewards, I recommend that you sign up for Walgreens Balance Rewards and download their mobile app. Your body will love the Walgreens Balance Rewards for healthy choices® you’ll be making and the savings will be well worth it.
