By the time you finish reading this, you will want to get a CVS Extra Care Card.Want to learn how to leave the store and only pay tax, read the section below. BTW: This does not happen on all of my transactions, but it is possible.
If you have any questions, leave me a comment or contact me by using my FB account.
• First, get your CVS ExtraCare Card by asking a cashier for a card/application.
• You'll need to have your card scanned for each of your purchases.
Start earning EB (Extrabucks)
• The required amount to receive the EB is always calculated before coupons.
• You do not have to buy all the products for that particular promotion in the same transaction or at the same store. A tally is printed on each receipt showing what you have towards each deal...
• EB can be used to purchase nearly anything in the store. (excluding prescriptions, alcohol, Gift Cards, lottery, money orders, postage stamps, pre-paid cards and tobacco products, as printed on the EB.) They also cannot be used to pay the tax on a transaction.
• EB expire 4 weeks from the date they are printed.
• CVS accepts manufacturer's coupons, including IP (internet printable) coupons. CVS also issues their own store coupons. You can get these through CVS emails and printed out at the end of your receipt (these are referred to as CRT's - cash register tape).
• Both EB and CRT coupons are linked to your CVS card, which means you cannot use them without the same CVS card that earned them.
• CVS coupon policy allows for the use of one manufacturer and one CVS coupon on each item. EB are not counted as coupons in this respect, you may use as many of these as you like
