The Balance® Rewards API enables pre-qualified partners to connect into Walgreens to share individual member health and wellness information to be eligible to receive Balance Rewards points for healthy activity like walking, running, and weight management.
The API is designed to enable partners to seamlessly share individual health and lifestyle activity and create or validate user memberships. In order for individuals to receive points for health and wellness activity, they must be a Balance Rewards member and have successfully completed a Walgreens OAuth login or registration.
