BUYERS are usually looking for the quickest and easiest ways to get what they need, but convenience comes at a cost.
Luckily, experts have shared ways to save big on CVS.
Your insights come at a good time.
Just weeks after inflation hit a 40-year high, prices are flat.
Households are paying more for gas and housing across the board.
There are also the price spikes that shoppers feel at the grocery store.
With inflation likely to linger for a while, here are six ways you can save on your next trip to the drugstore.
1. Shop at the beginning of the month or every Sunday
According to the most savvy buyers, this is when the CVS sale begins.
Shop on the first of the month or every Sunday to avoid missing out on limited-time offers.
There are two types of sales at CVS – monthly offers and weekly offers.
Popular offers go fast.
Part of what makes CVS a deal haven is its generous rewards.
Receive 2% back on all purchases when you sign up for a CVS ExtraCare card.
And if you leave your card at home – use your phone number to collect rewards.
Because you scan your card with every purchase, you receive personalized discounts that are not to be missed.
CVS ExtraCare Bucks, also known as ECBs, can be used like cash once you’ve earned them.
They are printed at the bottom of your receipt and typically expire within 30 days.
If you are purchasing multiple items, you can split them into two transactions at the self-checkout.
You would place most of your items in your first transaction, earn the rewards, and then apply your ECBs on your receipt to your second transaction.
This little trick will immediately lower your expense costs.
By signing up for ExtraCare Pharmacy and Health Premiums you will get credits faster.
You will receive a credit note for every prescription you fill out.
For every 10 credits you earn, you get $5 in ECBs.
You can earn up to $50 per year.
The following credits are offered by CVS Pharmacy:
- Complete or refill prescription = 1 credit
- Replenish 90-day recipe = 3 credits
- Link recipes to your CVS account = 3 credits
- Receive pharmacy text notifications = 1 credit
- Receive email refill reminders = 1 credit
- Get the flu shot or a CVS vaccine = 1 credit
Take advantage of your family’s expenses by collecting points from everyone.
Family size is unlimited – benefits can be bundled.
6. Look for free after discount items
And finally, look for “free after discount” items.
Just look for the “free after discount” label on the shelf or in the weekly flyer.
A list of available mail-in discounts can also be found in the Online Discount Center.
