Have you heard that Duane Reade just came out with an app that you can use in store? As a frequent shopper at Duane Reade, I think this will be a big help. You can easily renew your prescriptions, scan items in the store to find out prices, and sync your Balance Rewards card info to your smartphones – plus you can also print pictures directly from your smart phone!. I downloaded the App, gave it a look and then headed on in to shop. (Read More after the jump).
As someone who frequently uses her Balance Rewards Card, I was able to easily load my card info by signing into my account and then I was able to save it to my passbook.
Another good feature of the app is that there’s a store locator, so if you need to find a Duane Reade (or a Walgreen’s), it will show you the closest location via map or list.
I was on the hunt for travel accessories and snacks for my upcoming press trip to the Hard Rock Hotel in Cancun. I needed travel toiletries, snacks and travel items.
Since I’ll be in the sun, I picked up some sunscreen. I was able to find a high SPF Sunscreen spray in a 2 for 1 deal, with my Balance Rewards Card!
Then I headed to the travel toiletries section. I haven’t been away since September, so I was out of a lot of things. At Duane Reade the section was neat and offered everything I needed.
I ended up getting some travel size hair gel and hairspray (yes, I still use it), SHOUT wipes, contact lens solution, few other items and then I headed over to the snack aisle. I am a major snacker, but I’m trying to be healthy (and I wanted to make sure I had a couple of snacks for the plane since my flight is at 7 AM and I wasn’t sure if food is served anymore). I spotted Apple Clusters from Peeled, but there was no price. So I selected the bar code scanner and scanned the back of the package.
It found the price AND gave me info on the product — how cool is that!
While I currently don’t have any prescriptions with Duane Reade, I didn’t need this, but I liked that I could renew any Duane Reade prescriptions just by using the app.
What I’d like to see added: Since I do like and use Balance Rewards, I would love to be able to access what’s on sale and to be able see my Balance Rewards balance. I can check Duane Reade’s website, but it would be easier if I could see it right on the app.
