CardLinx member FIS today announced the addition of Walgreens to the growing list of merchants and retailers using Premium Payback, FIS’ real-time rewards redemption network. Starting this month, Walgreens’ customers with eligible payment cards will be able to tap into their credit card rewards points in real-time to pay for in-store purchases.
Look for FIS to continue to lead the industry in delivering relevant, real-time point-of-sale consumer engagement opportunities. Under the leadership of Mladen Vladic, GM of the loyalty division of FIS and CardLinx Association board member, thousands of FIs representing more than 7,000 card loyalty programs have enrolled in the FIS Premium Payback ecosystem benefiting 37 million eligible cardholders. Walgreens, one of the largest pharmacy chains in the US, is the latest to offer its customers the ability to pay-with-points at the point-of sale via FIS’ Premium Payback, joining Paypal, Shell, BP and others already on board.
