Extra bucks are coupons received at the end of the receipt and are like extra “bucks” when shopping at CVS. The same card has to be used in order to redeem the extra bucks.
Extra bucks can be used on the just about anything in the store except for the following stamps, alcohol, prescriptions, tax, and tobacco. You can still use the extra bucks on deals that you will receive extra bucks for but make sure you are checking the limits on the deals to receive the extra bucks.
Extra bucks are earned in three different ways and usually expire within 30 days.
- Quarterly extra bucks are issued four times a year and are calculated on the shopper’s spending at CVS.
- Prescription refills once you have filled ten prescription’s and or gotten vaccination at CVS. You will earn $5 Extra Bucks.
- Also while signing up for a CVS card make sure you also sign up for the Beauty club. Spend $30 on Beauty products and you will receive a $3 Extra Bucks reward.
- Weekly deals with extra bucks are issued immediately on the both of your receipts when a shopper buys an advertised “extra buck” item. There are limits, usually one or two, for weekly extra buck deals
3. Manufacturer coupons and CVS coupons can be combined.
CVS accepts all manufacturer coupons which includes the internet printable. CVS also has there own coupons that can be used as well.
CVS has there own coupons that are either emailed to you, sent out in the mail to you, then check the both of your receipts for coupons and they are also issued at the Kiosk in store.
CVS allows there store coupon and one manufacturer coupon per product. Extra bucks are not considered to be a coupon and they don’t count them as one they can be used with the store and manufacturer’s coupons.
4. Do small transaction in order to spend less out of pocket
If you know couponing you will pay for your items out of pockets at first. Then with items that are purchased, you will receive extra bucks at the both of your receipts. After receiving the extra bucks you can then roll them over into another transaction. Rolling your extra bucks over to another transaction will make you spend less out of pocket. You can also save your extra bucks for the next weeks deals which will lower yours out of pocket expenses.
The more you shop at CVS you will start to earn more extra bucks they will begin to build up slowly over time. Always check the expiration date to make sure you don’t miss out on using them.5. Rain Checks
CVS offers rainchecks if the item is out of stock. CVS issues rainchecks on the sale items and the extra buck amounts too. The rain checks never expire. People often save the rainchecks for when they have a coupon that will make the deal even better with little out of pocket money spent.
