These are my feet. They do not move nearly enough. And, while I love resting them, I’ve found recent motivation to get them moving more with Walgreens’ Steps with Balance Rewards program.
Steps with Balance Rewards allows Walgreens shoppers to earn points for healthy lifestyle choices. It’s the perfect complement to the work I’m doing to become healthier and to lose weight. I report my walks, workouts, weight and goals. The points I accumulate are added to my existing Walgreens Balance Reward account, where I’m already earning rewards for Walgreens purchases.
It’s quite easy to earn rewards for setting goals, entering workouts and purchasing designated items in-store and online. I wish it was a point-per-dollar-spent system, but it’s still a great way to reward myself for the work I’m doing to live healthier.
As an added bonus, I was also able to link my BodyMedia Fit arm band to my Walgreens Balance Rewards account. This is so convenient and there are a number of other tracking devices that can also be linked. While it takes a couple of days for me to receive credit for the activities, it’s so much easier than manually entering them into my Steps Activity Journal. I can still enter activity from the Walgreens app on my iPhone or iPad as well as Walgreens online. I can also track my Balance Rewards activity from each of those places, giving me easy access to the points I’ve accumulated.
The Steps with Balance Rewards program has been a great motivator during lulls in my weight loss pursuits. I know that my workouts and healthy purchases will eventually turn into a little extra cash (5,000 points equals $5), and that’s great impetus for getting this body moving. I’ve purchased a few more tools to help reach my goals and was thrilled to find that Walgreens offered them on sale or awarded Balance Rewards points. It’s so easy to find these opportunities in the store and in the Weekly Ads. Read all about that in my Google+ Shoppers Insight photo story when you’re done here!
If you’re not already a Balance Rewards member, it’s easy to sign up and start tracking and earning points on the Walgreens site. If you had a Walk with Walgreens account, like I did, it’s easy to convert that and transfer your points to your Steps account.
While you’re there, enter the Walgreens Step Up To Win Daily Sweepstakes. There is a new prize everyday and today’s prize is a pair of the new Dr. Scholl’s Active Series Insoles that I recently bought. The Grand prize is a trip to the Biggest Loser Resort and the contest ends May 5th. You may be lucky enough to win instantly like I did last week…
