As a fan of coupons, it’s great to see their continuing digitization for both online and brick and mortar stores. Recently, I noticed that CVS has started to go even more digital than before with their coupon offerings. Up until recently, one could both print out or “send to card” ExtraBuck savings deals but now one can also add standard store coupons, like you would find in a Sunday newspaper, instantly online. This is a BFD, in my opinion.
A big deterrent to using coupons previously was the both time, and some expense, of obtaining the coupons, clipping them, sorting them, and remembering to bring them to the store. Unless you are really good at this, meaning you have planned your trip carefully (and have the time to do so) and match them with CVS sales, the effort might not have been worth it. Especially if generic brands are available for less, you could end up spending all of that time clipping or printing those coupons and not even using them.
How CVS digital coupons work
Now that you are excited to try digital coupons, let’s take a step back and go over the steps involved to get these babies. First, if you don’t already have an ExtraCard, you will need to sign up for one at CVS.com. Easy. Second, you will need to click on the ExtraCare menu option, which is highlighted below.
Third, you will need to “add” the deals as shown below. You can then see what has been added to your card.
Fourth, just remember to bring your card or use your phone number when checking out at CVS. That’s it, you are done!
Once you get in the routine of checking CVS.com before shopping, this will become a relatively painless, easy way to save significant money at CVS.
