The weather is warming up and bathing suit season is looming, taunting me with unflattering suits that I will be forced to wear while I take my kids swimming.  And though I have lost 30 pounds, I still have 20 to go and, at some point, I am going to have to tone it all up.

So when I saw that one of my favorite Rewards programs, Balance Rewards with Walgreens was not only having a DAILY Step Up to WIN Sweeps with TONS of prizes – INCLUDING the Grand Prize of a Trip to the Biggest Loser Resort!! –  but also working really hard to reward me for being active, I was all over that serious motivation!

In fact, the prizes coming up just for the week of April 23 – April 29 range from Walgreens Gift Cards to Fitbit Zip to $100 scales!  They are just awesome and more than one person wins each day too!

Motivated by the sweepstakes and the fact that I can actually EARN points to save at the cash register at Walgreens just by getting out and getting active, I loaded up my three year old and headed to the store.  I wanted to learn what I could about the awesome Walk With Walgreens program now in full swing!  And I need some things to help keep me motivated and take care of me while I am getting all cute in a bathing suit!

I always love that when you walk into a Walgreens it is clean and organized and the best ideas and deals are advertised everywhere.    And I like that I can fill a prescription, be rewarded for that and then shop and save even more inside.  So as we walked around the store looking for awesome deals and ideas to stay healthier, I kept an eye out for Balance Rewards points.

As we strolled around, picking up protein bars to help curb my unhealthy snacking and some Calcium chews to help me keep my bones healthy, I noticed that the easy instructions on how to join and earn rewards were everywhere.  And the Walk with Walgreens program was well promoted as well!  I walked over the the Photo Kiosk just to see how complicated it was to sign up.

All I did was enter an email, got the confirm on my phone and I was off!  Of course, I signed up for Balance Rewards a while back online just as easily but it was good to see how incredibly fast it was in store too!

As I looked around some more for some more healthy inspiration for my cart, I noticed that the info packets on the Walk With Walgreens was right at the register!

When I got home I went online to log in my walk that I took yesterday!  All I did to link my Balance Rewards card to the Walk With Walgreens program was to sign in and and sign up!  It is just that easy.  Once in, I can log my miles, weigh, goals, and more to not only help me earn points, but to help me keep on track to the itty bitty one piece I’ll sport this June!
