Getting Started

  • First, register for your FREE CVS Extra Care Card.  Follow this LINK to sign up on-line or you may ask for a card in the store.
  • It is also a wise idea to register your card on-line and sign up for emails.  You do not have to register your card but you will be able to get more savings if you do.
  • CVS will send you coupons via email for various savings of $5 off of $20, $5 off of $40 etc. etc. and coupons for FREE CVS brand items.

Extra Bucks = EB

  • Start earning your EB by making purchases on items that specify EB promotions.  Look for promotions that say “Buy item a and receive $ in EB”.
  • You do not have to buy all the items required at once.  If the promo earns you $2 EB for purchasing two items you can buy those items on different days as long as the promotion has not ended.  The promotion dates are on the stickers posted under the items.
  • The amount needed to earn your EB is always the amount before coupons.
  • EB are printed at the end of your receipt.
  • EB are used on future purchases as money.  You may use these to pay for anything in the store except alcohol, prescription drugs, gift cards, postage, lottery, money orders, pre-paid cards and tobacco products.
  • EB expire four weeks after they are printed.

Shopping at CVS

  • Have your CVS card ready to scan as your enter your store.  There should be a scanner as you enter your store with red flashing light on top.  This is your savings center.  Your savings center will print out valuable CVS coupons to use in-store along with your Manufacture Coupon(s) (MQ).  Yes, you may use two coupons on one item.
  • Your printed out CVS coupons are linked to your Extra Care Card and only you can use them.
  • You might also try visiting CVS’s coupon section online before your trip for other CVS coupons.
  • You may use a CVS coupon and a MQ stack.
  • Present your coupons to the cashier in this order: CVS % off and/or $ off coupons exp. $5 off $20 or 20% off total order, CVS printable coupons, MQ and finally EB.

CVS vs. Walgreen (Wags)
CVS = ECB (Extra Care Bucks)
First thing to do with CVS is sign up for a free Extra Care Card. Make sure to also register this card on-line and sign up for their e-mails. CVS will send you coupons via e-mail $5 off of $20, $5 off of $40 etc. etc. and coupons for free CVS brand items. Remember these are random e-mails. ECBs last for one month from date of purchase.
Second, always remember to scan your CVS card at the machine in your store. The ECB machine will print out valuable coupons for you to use at CVS. This machine is also a price scanner so you can check the prices in the store. Again, you might get a random $5 off of $20 or $3 off of Revlon which I just got and paired with my free Revlon lipstick making it a MM. (MM = Money Maker).
CVS has coupons on their web-site to print out before your trip.
ECBs are cash money. Please keep these when they print out at the bottom of your receipt. You can use these to pay for anything in the store except alcohol, prescriptions, gift cards and tobacco products.
You can use a manufacture?s coupon stacked with a CVS coupon. Yes I said it; you can use two coupons on one product. There are many rules for this esp. when you have BOGO (Buy One Get One, or B1G1) free coupons. A good example right now is Tylenol Precise. In your recent Sunday paper you should have seen an MC $2 off coupon for Tylenol Precise, stack that with the CVS $2 off printable from their web-site and you have $4 off. If you purchase this product at a time when it is producing an ECB you will have yourself a free product. This is a great deal if you like trying new things or use heat patches and rub.
When checking out remember to hand over your coupons in this order? If you have a $5 off of $20 etc. etc. use that first, then hand over your manufacture?s coupons, CVS coupons and finally use your ECBs last for payment. A good CVS person will help you and know what order to put your coupons in.
CVS does not have a posted coupon policy at this time and they reserve the right to change things as they see fit.1
