As you all know, shopping at CVS has become regular for me thanks to their Extra Care Bucks offers & Viggle! This app is currently available for those with an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. A great thing about the gift cards is that they cover TAX!
Here are a few tips for shopping at CVS:
*ECB=Extra Care Bucks (CVS Reward Dollars) Sign up Free Here or in the store (make sure you attach your email to your Extra Care Card – they will send you occasional coupons!)
*You earn ECB’s with specially marked items weekly
*Scan your ECB card every trip to CVS at the Magic Coupon machine!
*You can view and/or print the CVS coupon policy HERE
*Scan your Green Bag Tag every trip & earn $1.00 ECB with every 4 scans (limited to 1 scan per shopping trip, regardless of number of transactions)
*Sign up for the Beauty Club for additional savings
*The key to spending less out of pocket (OOP) is doing smaller, separate transactions, using your ECB’s
*Roll your ECB’s. To “roll” an ECB means to spend it at CVS on an item that will give ECB’s back. You “roll” it into another ECB with a later expiration date while “purchasing” a free, or nearly free, product with your current ECB you earned from an earlier transaction.
