5 CVS Perks You Had No Idea Existed
You hit up your local CVS, oh, four times a week. But you’re usually rushing from the beauty/food/toilet paper aisle to the checkout line and out the door so fast, you barely have time to think about ways you could save cash…or time. Here, five benefits you need to take advantage of now.
You Can Swipe Your ExtraCare Card for 2 Percent Cash Back
OK, so it’s free CVS cash, but still. (Remember how frequently you shop?) Just don’t forget—or neglect—to swipe your card on every purchase, large and small. The savings add up…and fast. (Come on, like there’s anything sweeter than seeing a $5 off coupon print.)
And Sign Up to Get Bonus (and Personalized) Savings Sent to You Via Email
When you become an ExtraCare Rewards member at CVS, you’re automatically enrolled to receive the email newsletter where you’ll get personalized savings that you can send straight to your ExtraCare card to use the next time you shop. When you see a CVS email in your inbox, open it and simply click “Send to Card.” That 35 percent off coupon will be automatically applied the next time you swipe your ExtraCare card.
You Can Download the CVS App for Free Curbside Pickup
The sad truth: When are you not in a rush? The CVS app makes it a cinch to place an order online, then do a parking lot drive-by where store attendants hand-carry the items you bought (like toothpaste…and contact solution) straight to your car.
…And to Order Photo Prints Uploaded Straight from Your Phone
Printing photos (say, for a birthday—or sentimental and cost-effective holiday gift) feels like an impossible task these days. With the app, you can upload pics from your smartphone or Facebook and select same-day pickup. Done and done.
You Can Enroll to Receive Exclusive Savings on Beauty Products
Psst: The ExtraCare Beauty Club is something you have to opt into using your ExtraCare card rewards number, but once you do, you’ll receive exclusive perks like a 10 percent off beauty shopping pass right after enrollment and $5 in CVS cash back for every $50 spent on beauty items. Cha-ching.
