    Default CVS Extra Bucks Program

    I don't mean to sound dumb here, but what is it and how does it work? I know at CVS they always want to scan your customer card, but I am clueless about the redemption part of the program. If anyone knows, please tell me.

    They print you out a coupon (which I never use - cause I always loose it). However I have gotten some gift cards there for bringing a prescription over.... those I used.
    I would rather have the coupon or extra savings tied to my card that they scan, instead of on a piece of paper.

    Re: CVS Extra Bucks Program


    The Extra Care Bucks (ECBs) program works in a couple of ways. As the
    previous poster said, you do get coupons printed out.

    Better than that, however, you earn ECBs on everything you buy, usually
    at a 2% rebate. Then you get those ECBs at the end of the quarter.

    Even better, they almost always have items that will be "free" with the
    ECBs you earn for them. Ex: buy a name brand conditioner for $5.99, get
    $6 in ECBs back. You get those ECBs in about 2 days.

    You can spend your ECBs on almost anything in the store. If you play
    the ECBs right, you can spend very little at CVS and get a ton of stuff.

    HTH,

    Amy

    DO the ECB's carry over from quarter to quarter? Do you receive a statement or just query the cashier about how many ECB's you have?

    RE: Budget101.com : CVS Extra Bucks Program


    Basically, from what I?ve seen at CVS, they have special offers where if you purchase an item, $x of bonus dollars print at the end of your receipt or on a separate receipt. Many of the offers require you to use the bonus dollars on your next purchase, and usually can?t be used the same day. Some of them have weird requirements like ?the bonus dollars will print, and you can use them on the 3rd Tuesday following the next full moon?. OK, that?s an exaggeration , but you have to read the offers in the circular or in the store carefully to understand when you can actually use the bonus dollars. Since I don?t frequent CVS, I found it wasn?t worth it for me to go out of my way for a deal that gives bonus dollars because I usually didn?t subsequently use the bonus dollars by the expiration date. And they do expire, usually within a couple of weeks.



    Just my experience.

    Re: Budget101.com : CVS Extra Bucks Program



    Our CVS program was that after you earned so many points, you would
    receive coupons in the mail. However, these coupons were for items I
    would never buy.

    I quit using the card. It just wasn't paying off for me. I don't go
    to CVS that often anyway.

    Re: CVS Extra Bucks Program


    This program is great. I use it almost daily because there is a CVS
    right down the street from me.

    CVS has one of the most technologically advanced customer screening
    programs in the US. Since 80 % of the customers are women the stores
    are geared to us (if youhavent noticed). They actually track the
    items you buy and then on your receipt give you coupons for similar
    or same items. Not only that you get lots of coupons for $4.00 off a
    $20.00 purchase and things like that.

    If you get the weekly flyer that comes in your mail box you can note
    items that will give you "free bucks". For instance, if you buy a
    pediatric cough medicine that is advertised, on your recipt you will
    get a couple of free bucks to use any way you want.

    Also, after each quarter (season) they give out extra bucks. Like
    when winter ended I got a coupon for 14.00 free dollars.

    I save so much money. For instance, I have spent about 200.00 so far
    this year there (I buy all my diapers and beauty products there). I
    used manufactures coupons, combined with cvs sales and there free
    bucks and their $4.00 off coupons. Ive saved $85.00 !!

    Hope this helps.

    RE: Budget101.com : CVS Extra Bucks Program


    This can be an awesome program IF you use it properly.

    If you buy certain items, they will give you $X.XX in ECB (Extra Care
    Bucks). 48 hrs. after you shop there, the ECB is credited to your account.
    You can then use that amount at CVS.

    A lot of items end up being free with the ECB program.

    If you print them out and lose them Customer Service will credit you that
    amount (as long as it has not been cashed in).

    I am VERY careful with my ECB's that I print out as they are the same as
    cash at CVS.

    Once you put out an initial amount, you can actually keep "rolling over"
    the ECB's and not put out a lot more money.

    Last week I bought the Tylenol redi tabs...they were 2 packs for $5.00. I
    also had 2 $1.00 off coupons for any Tylenol product, so I only paid $3.00
    for them.

    I in turn earned $5.00 in ECB's that I used this week towards my Cottonelle.

    The Cottonelle was on sale for$6.00 for a double roll 12 pack. I had $1.00
    coupon off each pack, and If you purchased $24.00 worth of Kimberly Clark
    products (the Cottonelle), you earned $7.00 in ECB's.

    So....I rolled over the $5.00 from last week, used my coupons, and ended up
    paying 32 cents a roll for double roll Cottonelle PLUS in 2 days, I have a
    $7.00 credit at CVS.

    Just my 2 cents worth.
