I love autumn! It is my favorite season of the year. The trees in New York City begin to put on their autumn dress in October, and the city parks become breathtakingly beautiful!
I love autumn's bounty of bright orange pumpkins, wonderful harvest fresh fruits and vegetables, and I even enjoy the chore of raking the leaves! The crisp cool weather rejuvenates me both mentally and physically, and encourages me to let go the lazy days of summer and get back to pursuing healthy habits.
That is why I was intrigued to recently learn about the Blue365®, a national program offered by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association to members of participating Blue Cross and/or Blue Shield Companies. Blue365 makes it easier to incorporate fun, healthy activities into your budget by offering access to savings on a wide variety of fitness, nutrition, and even travel options!
After registering online, you will be able to qualify for "Featured Deals," and long term "Ongoing Deals," that are offered in weekly e-mails sent to your inbox, which will help you maintain healthy lifestyle choices. The Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association has a Facebook page you can join to see the deals as they are offered.
The website is easy to navigate, and I was interested in many of the deals that I saw on it, such as a 20% discount on Reebok online store purchases under the Fitness category, and 50% off three bottles of Argentous alcohol free hand sanitizer in the Personal Care category.
Unfortunately, even though I presently have a health insurance plan through a Blue Company, mine doesn't yet participate in the Blue365 Program. I signed up anyway, as they will notify me if my Blue Company does join at a future date. To see the deals that bloggers chose to take advantage of, whose Blue Company already participates, see this link.
Check to see if your Blue Company participates in Blue365 on this link, and then register to take advantage of all the deals. If your plan does not participate, why not register anyway, like I did, in case they join at a later date? The Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association is committed to helping Blue Companies' members live healthy, happy lives. They help make being healthy more affordable, which is definitely something we can all appreciate!
