Here is a press release about Walgreens Register Rewards being continued after they start their new program on Sept 16th:
Online enrollment for Balance Rewards will begin after Labor Day on Thursday, September 6. Beginning that day, customers can join Balance Rewards online at Walgreens.com/balance or via the Walgreens mobile app. The national launch of Balance Rewards remains Sunday, September 16. That’s when customers can easily enroll in-store, online or via the mobile app and begin earning points and special savings, and start redeeming rewards.
We’ve received a lot of questions about Register Rewards and have seen a lot of misinformation about the program online. To clarify, Register Rewards will continue in its current form for the foreseeable future. Register Rewards is a couponing program while Balance Rewards is a comprehensive loyalty program that offers exclusive savings and the opportunity to earn points and instantly redeem rewards. We hope you will join Balance Rewards in September and experience the many features of the program for yourself.
For those taking advantage of the online enrollment period, Walgreens is running the Balance Rewards 10 Million Point Giveaway September 6 – 15th. During this time, customers who join Balance Rewards online or through the mobile app will have a chance to enter to win. Customers can earn additional entries into the sweepstakes by referring friends and family to the program. 10 Grand Prize Winners will each win 1 million points in their Balance Rewards account that can be redeemed at Walgreens stores, Walgreens.com, or Duane Reade stores.
As it stated above, the new programs starts Sept 16th and it would be a smart thing to register online before the program starts on that day. Below is the Fact Sheet about the new program Walgreens Balance Rewards Fact Sheet:
