  • Apple Pay Now Compatible With Walgreens Balance Rewards Card

    Walgreens just recently announced that their loyalty program, Balance Rewards, is now compatible with Apple Pay. Members of the program can now use their Apple Watch and iPhone for tap-to-pay capabilities on the contactless payment. Walgreens is the first retailer to have their loyalty program compatible with Apple Pay. It was noted that there are currently 85 million plus active members on Walgreens’ Rewards program.

    According to Walgreens’ President of Digital and Chief Marketing Officer, Sona Chawla,

    We're excited to be the first to provide our customers with increased ease of access to their Balance Rewards account and information when using Apple Pay. This offering supports our commitment to removing friction and enabling a simple and convenient customer experience.
    In order for users to add their Balance Reward card to their iPhone wallet, they’ll have to use the Wallet app in iOS 9. Users will have to activate the card and once activated, they can use the fingerprint scan to authorize transactions (obviously only those who own an iPhone 6/6 Plus or iPhone 6s/6s Plus). An unlocked Apple Watch is also compatible with the loyalty program card and Apple Pay.

    There are currently 8,173 Walgreens stores in the U.S. and approximately 76% of the U.S. population lives near a Walgreens.
