If you are a CVS/pharmacy shopper, chances are good that you are a member of the CVS ExtraCare program. And if you aren’t – you should be! The CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare program allows shoppers to save and earn rewards on everything from household products, to beauty items and gifts. You can save and earn rewards in a variety of ways, including getting 2% back on almost all of your purchases.
I thought it might be helpful to share some information with you on how to maximize your savings with the CVS ExtraCare program – since there are so many different ways to save.
7 Tips to Maximize your CVS ExtraCare Program Savings:
- myWeekly Ad: myWeekly Ad features a weekly digital circular personalized just for you, with the deals on products that you love and buy. You can also easily see your latest ExtraCare savings and rewards, and easily browse the ExtraBucks Rewards offers in one place.
- ExtraCare Coupon Center: (Otherwise known as the “magic coupon machine” – at least to me!) Available at all CVS/pharmacy locations, ExtraCare Coupon Centers are the red kiosks often located at the front of the store where you can scan your ExtraCare card and receive coupons on the spot. These coupons are customized for you based on your previous shopping. You can also print your quarterly ExtraBucks® Rewards for immediate use. The Coupon Centers also function as a price-checker.
- ExtraCare E-mail: ExtraCare members can opt-in to receive additional coupons and health and beauty information directly in your e-mail inboxes. I’m not a huge fan of extra email, but in my opinion, these emails are worth it! I love receiving special coupons personalized to me. You can register for these emails at: CVS.com/extracareemail.
- Send to Card: If paper coupons are not your thing, the new “Send to Card” feature lets shoppers redeem ExtraSavings™ and ExtraBucks® Rewards digitally! ExtraBucks® Rewards and select coupons are delivered via email or on CVS.com straight to your ExtraCare cards quarterly when you use this option.
- Social Media Savings: Shoppers can follow the official CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare Twitter account or “Like” the CVS/pharmacy Facebook page for the latest deals, savings advice and inside scoop updates, as well as exclusive coupons and contests.
- ExtraCare Beauty Club: Members who sign up for the Beauty Club receive special savings and rewards, including $5 ExtraBucks® Rewards for every $50 spent on qualifying beauty products, plus email newsletters with exclusive coupons, beauty tips and new product information. Shoppers can also follow the Beauty Club on Twitter or Facebook to gain insider access to special offers, hot deals, product news and expert beauty advice. I buy a lot of my beauty products at CVS and I love this!
- ExtraCare Advantage for Diabetes: Members who sign up receive exclusive savings, Double ExtraBucks® Rewards on more than 100+ diabetes-related products, prescription management services as well as recipes, member stories and pharmacist tips all year-round.
