Recently, Walgreens crossed the technology cusp to Apple Pay and Android Pay. They have embedded their Balance Rewards program right into these two payment options. This gives their rewards members a seamless, secure way to earn and use their Balance Rewards points. But the most beneficial aspect of this is for any customers who use Apple Pay or Android Pay to at check out, will no longer have to show or end their Balance Rewards card, all they will have to do is tap twice; what a convenience!
Walgreens is on the cutting edge of this technology, as they are continually looking for innovative technologies to help improve their customer’s experiences. This functionality will work with iOS version 9 and higher on iPhone 6 and up, as well as the Apple Watch. It will also be compatible with Androids 4.4 KitKat and higher.
This integration is what technology is about, continually simplifying user experience. We think Walgreen’s nailed it with this one!
