After introducing the Reap the Rewards series, I couldn’t decide in what order I would talk about the loyalty programs. Should I group them by store type – department, pharmacy, grocery, etc.? Or should I discuss them according to the type of reward – cash, merchandise, etc.? After weeks of scratching my head, I decided to start with my favorites. At the top of that list is CVS’s ExtraCare rewards program. I could also argue that this is the most effective program since I rarely shopped at CVS before becoming a member because I found their prices to be higher than other retailers. However, since beginning to shop there I have discovered that they have fantastic sale prices. They offer a boatload of store coupons which can be combined with manufacturers’ coupons. Putting this all together, these deals plus the rewards lands me in CVS on a weekly basis racking up all kinds of savings.
Here is what you should know in order to reap the rewards from CVS
- CVS store coupons don’t expire. There is an expiration date printed on each coupon, but they will accept them long past the date.
- Coupons will print on your receipt and show up in your inbox. You can also get them at the in-store kiosk by scanning your card. Additional coupons are available online. These coupons can be printed or sent to your card, which saves you the expense of ink and paper.
- Available CVS store coupons can be viewed online with the weekly ad. This helps you to easily combine savings.
- Sign up for myWeeklyAd and get additional deals and coupons!
- CVS store coupons can be combined with manufacturer’s coupons!
- You earn CVS ExtraBucks in the amount of 2% of your purchases when you spend $25 in qualifying purchases (which includes pretty much everything but lottery tickets, money orders, alcohol, tobacco and the like) in a 45-day period. ExtraBucks can also be earned by purchasing weekly sale items with an ExtraBucks reward.
- CVS ExtraBucks can be spent like cash on future purchases. Unlike other programs, there is no point system involved. $5 in ExtraBucks is $5 that you don’t pay out of pocket!
- Like CVS coupons, ExtraBucks don’t actually expire (even though there is an expiration date printed on them).
- The ExtraCare Beauty Club allows you to earn $5 in ExtraBucks for every $50 spent on beauty products. This includes not only cosmetics, but skin and hair care as well. The purchase of these products also counts toward your 2% ExtraBucks earnings. You do have to sign up for this program in addition to the ExtraCare signup.

- CVS allows you to “burn and earn” in the same transaction. This means that you can use ExtraBucks (“burn”) to pay for purchases in the same transaction where you are earning extra bucks for those same purchases.
- You can sign up online or with the cashier in store to get an ExtraCare card.
This really is a fantastic reward program! If you are already a regular CVS shopper, get your ExtraCare card asap so that you can start saving right away. If you have not shopped CVS before, start perusing their weekly ad then get an ExtraCare card so that you too can reap the rewards!
