I just noticed that you can now switch from Balance Rewards to myWalgreens.
In case you don't know, they are migrating from points-based rewards (Balance Rewards) s to cash-based ones (Walgreens Cash) . Direct conversion as you would expect.
I have been spending all my points ahead of this change, so I only had 210 points, and after signing up and converting, I now have 21 cents.
Beauty Enthusiast was scheduled to end last week
No new accounts or renewals for Walgreens +, but current members can continue using..
That is what I can remember off the top of my head.

You'll forfeit your Balance® Rewards points and your account will be deactivated if you don't sign up for myWalgreens by January 31, 2021
I had over 100,000 points, but I spent 50,000 ($50) recently.
Converting to myWalgreens was simply a couple clicks. So far, it looks like a name change and points went to cash. It seems like a lot of effort for very little gain. I guess they had a lot of money to spend.
Is it simpler? Not that I can see.
I hate that you can't earn points if you use your points. I suspect if you take cash, you can't earn cash. Those 5000 point coupons for spending $20 are great, but you can't use them if you want to spend your points.
I hope they convert Register Rewards to Walmart Cash. Register Rewards expire in two weeks and I don't always get back to Walgreens in two weeks. Points (now Cash) expire in 12 months.
We will have to wait to see how this all shakes out next year.
