I’m over here up to my eyeballs in getting posts ready for Amazon Prime Day and all the competing stores, and CVS chooses this week to announce changes to their ExtraCare program.
YES, the ONE store that has not change ANYTHING about their couponing/savings/rewards program in the TWELVE YEARS I’ve been a deal blogger, is making changes.
So what’s going on? Honestly, I don’t think it’s going to be too bad!
New Birthday Reward
All ExtraCare members will now get a $3 reward during their birthday month. These will appear automatically in your account if you have shared your birthday information in your CVS account.
End of Quarterly Rewards
Currently you earn 2% back in ExtraCare Rewards that print at the end of each quarter. That’s going away.
Instead, starting the first week in July you will get automatic 2% rewards after every purchase that you can use right away or store up and spend them later. These rewards will expire 90 days after you earn them.
To celebrate the new program changes CVS will offer special freebies exclusively in the CVS App starting in late June and throughout the month of July. ExtraCare members will find a new free gift each week in the app, ranging from better-for-you snacks and treats to health and beauty essentials.
So, see? Not too bad! I’ll keep you up to date on when the free products will be in the app so you don’t forget to redeem them!
