first, create your CVS ExtraCare account

ask a cvs employee to set you up or sign up online.

only one cvs card is allowed per household according to this post on cvs's facebook page.




next, start earning extrabucks

    extrabucks are earned through promotions, such as "Buy X, receive $Y extrabucks." these promotions are advertised on cvs.com or shelf tags. extrabucks will print at the end of your receipt or appear in your extracare account, depending on your receipt settings.
  • The required amount to receive the extrabucks 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.
  • extrabucks can be redeemed on the purchase of nearly anything in the store - excluding prescriptions, alcohol, Gift Cards, lottery, money orders, postage stamps, pre-paid cards, tobacco products, & tax.

  • extrabucks expire 4 weeks from the date they are printed.
  • you cannot get change back when you spend your eb's. however, they can be accepted for less than their face value. for example, your total (before tax) comes to $1.97 and you have $1.99 in extrabucks - if you don't mind losing the 2 cents you may choose to redeem it. the extrabucks value will adjust to the balance due before tax.

using coupons @ cvs

  • CVS accepts manufacturer's coupons, including printable coupons.

  • CVS also issues store coupons. you can find these in cvs emails, your extracare account, or print them at the extracare coupon center / end of your receipt (these are referred to as CRT's - cash register tape).

    log into your cvs account to make sure you are subscribed to email communications.

see the cvs coupon guide for more info.

  • Both extrabucks and CRT coupons are linked to your CVS card, which means you can only redeem them on the CVS accounts that earned them.
  • CVS allows for the use of one manufacturer and multiple CVS coupons on each item. extrabucks are not counted as coupons in this respect, you may use as many of these as you like.
