Beat the Flu with CVS/pharmacy + Prize Pack Giveaway #cvsaccess

cvs pharmacy prize pack giveaway

UPDATE: This giveaway has ended. Winner is #30, Jeri.

The flu seems to be hitting many people late this year, and from what I hear it is not fun! I like to have my medicine cabinet stocked in the event that someone in my house gets sick, and I frequently stock up on the essentials at my local CVS/pharmacy.

I love shopping at CVS for several reasons. One, my local CVS is close to my house, so it’s convenient for me to stop in. I love that I can find just about anything that I want at CVS, and that I can run in and out of the store in less than 10 minutes if need be because everything is well organized and not overly large like a superstore. (In other words, it isn’t daunting to take my kids in there to pick something up quickly). Obviously I LOVE all of the ways that I can save money at CVS. Of all of the great money saving programs that CVS offers, I most often take advantage of CVS ExtraCare Rewards and the “Magic Coupon Machine” that is at the front of my local store.

I have been working with CVS the past couple of years and I have had the opportunity to try several CVS brand products across many product lines, including home items, food and health and wellness products. In addition to being 30% less than national brands, I have found CVS/pharmacy brand products to be just as good if not better than products that I used in the past. No lie! I actually seek out several CVS/pharmacy brand products now when I’m shopping.

CVS/pharmacy Brand Healthcare products and OTC medications have the same active ingredients and are regulated under the same strict FDA guidelines as national brand alternatives, so you can still get all the same benefits to your health from these products – and spend less. You can’t beat that!

One of the best ways to prevent illness is to get enough sleep. If you or someone you know has an issue with snoring, you might be interested to know that CVS/pharmacy just introduced new and improved nasal strips. In addition to providing cold and allergy relief, they reduce snoring. I’ll admit it – this is something I really struggle with when I am stuffed up or my allergies are out of control. So I’m really excited to try this product when my spring allergies start to flare up.

CVS also provides a number of CVS Brand OTC items that will help your family get through the end of the flu season without breaking your budget.

Here are a few products to keep an eye out for:

WIN IT! While I wouldn’t wish the flu on anyone, I am happy to say that one lucky winner is going to win a CVS Prize Pack that includes the items listed above – so that you are prepared in the event that you or someone in your household gets sick.

I always use the wipes at the front of stores to clean off the cart handles and when I get home from being out shopping, first thing I do is wash my hands. I think taking a daily vitamin helps ward off colds.

23 Jill March 7, 2014 at 5:19 PM

I keep hand sanitizer on the island in the kitchen so my family can always keep their hands clean.

My best tip would be to avoid people! O.k. so that obviously isn’t an option so the next best thing would be to get a flu shot, wash your hands a lot, get enough sleep and eat healthy.
