MapMyFitness Syncs with Walgreens Balance Rewards

Posted on May 27th, 2014 in Blog, News.

Ever notice how the closest convenience store goes unobserved until you are in dire need of socks, allergy medicine, band aids, toilet paper, gummy vitamins – you name it? Then, as if it knew you needed it, Walgreens appears enveloped in soft glowing light and trumpets sounding marking the momentous save that just occurred. 

The MapMyFitness team loves Walgreens for far more reasons than just their handy sock aisle. In fact, we are proud to say that we were chosen to be one of only a handful or partners that Walgreens works with in the health sphere and one of only three mobile apps! Because of this partnership, MapMyFitness users can now sync their account with the Walgreens Balance Rewards program to earn points for their activity.

Walgreens Balance Rewards allow you to get points for healthy activities you do every day. Use those points on future purchases and let the MapMyFitness app sync your workouts to the platform automatically! Breezy easy.

What’s the catch? No catch. Go ahead and link those accounts up, get to walking, and save on future healthy purchases at Walgreens. Yes, skipping for joy totally counts as steps.
