Anyone able to get the Walgreens Steps Rewards to sync with their FitBit or is it only me it refuses to work for? I've been trying for about a week to get it to sync and ever time I get an error message. I hate when companies offer stuff to get you to use their site and then it doesn't work.

I didn't know anything about it so I just went to check it out. When I got to the page to link my Fitbit it said the page was currently unavailable and to check back later. So they must be having issues with it.

Haha - the customer service rep said it was just me and it works perfectly. Hmmm - not so perfect is it! Glad it's not just me! I'll stick to Earndit and Everymove - both those work great! Guess I'm being punished for being greedy and trying to get too many rewards! laugh

Walgreens allows you to manually enter your miles for the day. It's even retroactive for about 2 weeks! I love that in addition to earning points for miles, you can also earn points for logging your weight and for gym and/or cardio exercises!

I first syched mine on 4/13 and then it pulled the mileage for the 13th on the 14th, the 14th on the 15th and the 15th on the 16th- nothing since then! Super annoying. You do get 250 points for synching the accounts though.

I've never got it to work. I've tried it at home, work, on my ipad. I had a long instant message convo with their customer service people. Just not going to happen for me I guess.

If anyone uses Everymove they now let you give points to your friends when you have an active day bonus. Problem is I have more points to give than friends. I'm Ready2Rock there if anyone wants to be my friend and take my bonus points...

My steps are transferring over but I'm not getting the points for the miles. I posted a question on the BR forums.

Try uninstalling your Fitbit device on their site and reinstalling it. smile

I've done that at least 15 times. It still has an error every damn time.

I went through some of the posts on the Walgreen's step steps rewards site and it looks like you get a maximum of 1000 points a month. When May, 2013 starts it sounded like the Fitbit will start uploading steps again. But you can manually put your walks in I guess until then. I could be wrong, but that is what it looked like to me. You might want to check the site yourself. to make sure.

I joined on 4/13. I got points through 4/16. Nothing has shown up since.

I got credit for only 1 mile on 4/16, even though I walked more than 3 miles. That tells me that the whole thing went haywire on the 16th.

I looked back and it looks like I got the correct credits for my Fitbit miles through the 16th. Since I started on this program on the 12th of April and have less than 1000 points I should be adding up the points for the 17th and after too. I have been getting my daily. weigh-in points though.

Mine finally decided to work. It gave me a badge for syncing 3 devices so I was like WTH? So I went to the site and deleted everything again, deleted everything at FitBit again and once everything was all cleared out again tried one last time (for like the 20th time) and tada. Success. Crazy.

Got mine to work easy...but no idea why I bothered cause I'm in Australia & it's not mean for us here. I think I'll earn the points & hand something over to someone in the US.

It looks like they've fixed it, b/c everything is matching for me now.

Update - I posted two messages this past week about not getting points for miles and this morning they were all added. Don't know if there was a glitch or if it updates once a week.... There wasn't a response to my comments. Now to see if they keep being added!

Since I'm not in the US can I gift them to someone else that is in the US?? Someone may as well benefit from it as I do heaps of walking.

Or maybe the earndit one?

Anyone have any experience this way??

Thanks
