CVS ExtraCare Savings
If you’ve never shopped at CVS before or just haven’t signed up for their ExtraCare card make sure you do! You can easily sign up free online at CVS’ website or at the store. CVS’ ExtraCare reward program card qualifies you for discount prices and ExtraBucks. Every time you use your ExtraCare card you earn 2% back. Also, every two prescriptions you get filled with your ExtraCare card you earn $1.
Once you have your own ExtraCare card you are ready to earn ExtraBucks. ExtraBucks are very similar to Catalina coupons. They are printed on the bottom of your receipts after your purchase. You know how the saying goes “all great things must come to an end”. If you read the small print on the bottom of the ExtraBucks the limit will be shown. It’s typically limited to 1 or 2 items and the expiration dates are usually short.
CVS runs great promotions to receive additional ExtraBucks for spending certain amounts of money. Popular promotions CVS will run is purchase $10, $12 or $15 worth of certain items and receive ExtraBucks back. These are great because as long as the subtotal adds up to one of these amounts you can use your manufacturer coupons to save money and still receive the ExtraBucks!
Unfortunately when using ExtraBucks, you redeem an ExtraBuck that’s more than the product you forfeit the extra money. Stores like Walmart will actually reward you by taking the leftover money and using it towards the rest of your cart or even give you the cash back.
You know that ExtraCare card I tried so hard to convince you to get before? Well once you get it don’t lose it! Yes, the cashier can search for your phone number at the register, but you wont be able to use the ExtraCare Coupon Center! This machine allows you to scan your card to print coupons to save on your purchases that day! And don’t be shy when scanning, try scanning that baby twice for even more coupons. The coupons will vary for each store and customer, so don’t be discouraged if you didn’t receive the same deal as someone else.

I know what most of you are saying “what about those rainchecks?” Well here it is: CVS offers one of the absolute best rain check programs out there.
