Should You Add a Walgreens Location?
You may want to specify a Walgreens location for your card if you always go to the same store. This is nice if you tend to just pick up your prescriptions or if you live significantly closer to one Walgreens than another.
However, if you travel frequently or live near multiple Walgreens stores, you might not want to add a location with the card. That way, you’ll have no problem using your rewards card no matter which store you shop at.
You can visit your home store or go to another location. So if you live near one Walgreens but work near another, you can use your card at both places.
