Errands Made Easy

My husband and I often use our experience raising children in New York City as a barometer to measure our aptitude as parents in the suburbs. Every day, as I’m loading my kids into the bus of a vehicle we drive them around in, I’m reminded of what it was like to simply walk out of our apartment and be able to access nearly everything we needed within a few blocks. In the suburbs, simply going to the pharmacy can be a lengthy adventure and it’s difficult to find the time to go in between bringing my kids to and from school, camp, and activities.

We were recently introduced to the Walgreens App and it’s changed the game for all of us in more than a few ways. Jack has regular prescription medications that he takes to manage his asthma as well as his allergies, which I can simply refill by scanning the Rx label. The app also allows me to view medication history and refill any other medications right from our account. I can set reminders for when our children need to take their medications to make sure that they never miss a dose (something that we struggle with regularly when they are ill). The Walgreens App also lets me find care for common conditions right from the phone – I can schedule a visit with a healthcare provider in person.


The reality is, as a mother of five children who have different needs, capabilities, and schedules, it’s nearly impossible for me to make sure everything is getting done. Having an app that allows me to do some things in a very quick and easy fashion is priceless! The Walgreens app can also:

-Print photos from your phone for FREE Same Day Pickup at your nearest Walgreens

-Create Photo Cards and invitations, Photo Books, and décor items like Metal Panels, Custom Floating-Frames and Canvas Prints right from your phone for FREE Same Day Pickup

-Add paperless coupons to your Balance® Rewards account for automatic savings, in store and online

-Browse the Weekly Ad from your phone and the paperless coupons you want right to your Balance® Rewards account

-Scan barcodes while you shop to add matching paperless coupons to your Balance® Rewards account, and redeem them automatically when you enter your Balance® Rewards account information at checkout.



While I might be impacted in various ways living in the suburbs with a basketball team of children at home, there are all kinds of new services within the Walgreens App that make my life easier in some fairly important and critical ways. As a parent, this type of functionality is so helpful and appreciated! The kids love the additional time they get to spend with me and vice versa.
