wags rewards card discontinued!

great news! the "walgreens rewards" card program that has been running in test areas (richmond va, kansas city mo, and portland or) is being discontinued.

this program replaced many high value register rewards deals with a number of points earned which could be traded in for gift cards or other rewards. not a terrible idea, in theory - but the small number of points earned was rarely enough to equal the value of rr's earned in the regular ads.

let's hope the new program walgreens is planning is an improvement!

from the faq on walgreensrewards.com...
Why is the program being discontinued?

Walgreens Rewards is a pilot program that is currently operating in a selected number of stores. We're in the process of designing a new program that will be the largest, most exciting retail rewards program in the marketplace. Discontinuing the pilot program is essential to make the necessary enhancements.

When will the program be discontinued?

Program discontinuation will occur in two phases:
Effective January 1, 2012, program cards will no longer be required to receive the sale prices for items featured in our weekly circular. Coupons featured in the weekly circular will be required at checkout to receive the discount.
Further, on January 1, 2012, we will no longer issue points for purchases made.
Points earned must be redeemed by January 31, 2012.

What should I do with my program card and key tag?

Cards and key tags will be deactivated effective January 1, 2012, at which point they can be discarded because they will no longer work in our stores.
