Walgreens Launches Next Evolution in Paperless Coupons, Enabling Seamless Redemption and Clipping on Digital Channels

Company announces more than 135 million coupons clipped, as
popularity of paperless coupons continues to increase

Enhancements extend coupon convenience to make saving easier

DEERFIELD, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Walgreens customers now have the ability to redeem paperless coupons
from Walgreens and manufacturers for online purchases, as well as
in-store purchases. Additionally, offers can now be “clipped” on product
detail pages and in search results on Walgreens.com, and through the
Walgreens mobile app.

Both new features are the drugstore chain’s latest enhancements to its
paperless coupon offering, making it faster and easier for customers to
find and redeem the latest promotions and deals.

“In the last few years, we’ve seen a growing demand from our customers
to provide value and a seamless shopping experience whether they visit
us in-store, online or through the Walgreens mobile app,” said Linda
Filler, Walgreens president of retail products and chief merchandising
officer. “Paperless coupons give Walgreens and our vendor partners an
opportunity to deliver even greater value to our customers no matter
which of our channels they choose to shop.”

Walgreens paperless coupons are the electronic coupons available to the
more than 85 million active Balance® Rewards members through
Walgreens.com/coupons or the Walgreens mobile app. Customers can search
and “clip” hundreds of offers in a variety of categories from Walgreens
and other manufacturers. Clipped offers are automatically saved to a
customer’s Balance Rewards card and can be seamlessly applied in-store
at checkout when a customer uses their Balance Rewards card. Now,
customers also have the ability to use their clipped offers while
shopping online at Walgreens.com or through the Walgreens mobile app.

“We were one of the first retailers to take an innovative and simplified
approach in developing the customer experience for digital coupons,”
said Abhi Dhar, Walgreens senior vice president and chief information
officer. “These latest enhancements, in addition to integrating our
loyalty program with Apple Pay and Android Pay, have made it even easier
for the millions of people who use our online and mobile channels every
day to save even more at Walgreens.”

Since Walgreens first launched paperless coupons in 2014, the drugstore
chain has seen a continual increase in monthly redemptions, with more
than 135 million total coupons clipped through the program. The company
has continued to enhance and simplify paperless coupons by also offering
manufacturer coupons through a partnership with Quotient (previously
Coupons.com Incorporated). Walgreens also plans to offer digital
redemption and clipping from product pages for its Weekly Ad and Monthly
Savings Book later this summer to give customers more savings
