Walgreens started as a single drug store, and is now a leader in the pharmacy retail space with 8,100 locations across the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Walgreens has always been an innovator in its field, offering self-service stores in the 1950s and launching a mobile app in more recent years. Each day, a total of 8 million people visit Walgreens in-store, online and on the mobile app.

Walgreens offers a full range of pharmacy services including prescription refills, diabetes management tools, access to pharmacy experts, flu shots and more. You can also sign up for text alerts and refill reminders, get free shipping on prescriptions and manage your whole family’s prescriptions in one place. Visit a Walgreens Healthcare Clinic for additional health services, such as care for illness, aches and pains, minor injuries and HIV testing. You can schedule a same-day appointment easily online, and the clinics take most health insurance plans.
Access all of Walgreens’ services at your fingertips with the Walgreens mobile app. You can use the app to manage your prescriptions, browse products, order photo prints and gifts, and see weekly ads and coupons. The Walgreens app also allows you to refill prescriptions by simply scanning your prescription’s bar code, check your Balance Rewards and locate the nearest Walgreens store. You can even use the chat feature to get expert advice 24/7. The app is available for iPhone users via the App Store, and for Android users via Google Play.
You don’t need the mobile app to access Walgreens coupons. You can also browse hundreds of coupons online by clicking on the “Paperless Coupons” option under the “Weekly Ad & Coupons” tab on Walgreens.com. Once you find a coupon or coupons you’d like to redeem, simply click on the coupon(s) and they will be automatically added to your Balance Rewards account. The coupons will be applied when you make your purchase using your account either in-store or online.
Walgreens stock values rose in the first quarter of 2018, CNBC reported. The number of prescriptions filled by the retail pharmacy chain rose thanks to its partnership with pharmacy benefit managers such as Prime Therapeutics. Because retail sales have been declining, Walgreens has shifted its focus to its pharmacy services. As of April 2, 2018, Walgreens Boots Alliance stocks were valued at $63.10 per share.
