Employees of Walgreens do not point out the downside of redeeming points at the check out. Also employees don't tell you there are no points if you pick up from the pharmacy and it includes a government paid prescription.
for example you pick up your presecription along with one for an elderly person on medicare. NO POINTS.
Walgreens employees know details about the program and should advise customers when it is not in their best interest to redeem points. Employees should not suggest using points when they know you will loose the points for that day's purchase if you redeem points.
