Why is it that fevers always spike in the middle of the night, the flu strikes the family on weeks when you’re up against a deadline, little ones wake up with upset stomachs on the mornings of important work meetings, and ear infections erupt at the drop of a hat? It’s never convenient for anyone in the family to get sick but when you’re juggling work, a sick child, and trying to get that coveted last minute appointment to see your family doctor at least the CVS ExtraCare program can help alleviate some of the burdens that parents face.
With cold and flu season upon us, the CVS ExtraCare program is a free and easy way parents can save time and money to focus on nursing your child back to health so they feel better faster. Here are 3 ways to use the CVS ExtraCare Rewards program to find your family’s healthy during the upcoming cold and flu season.
Text notifications for prescriptions eliminate wait time
When my kids are sick, I find myself stopping at my local CVS to pick up a prescription sent in by our pediatrician. I used to swing by CVS on my way home from the pediatrician’s office to pick up the prescription but thanks to the free CVS Pharmacy app, I can be notified via text when it’s ready rather than going with a sick child in tow.
The notification feature helps eliminate the guesswork about how long the wait might be or when I should head over to the pharmacy since I know it will be ready for me upon arrival.
ExtraCare Rewards and ExtraBucks save money
I love being able to leave the pediatrician’s office with a diagnosis, go home to assess our medicine cabinet to see what other cold or flu remedies we might need, get my sick child settled on the couch, and open the ExtraCare program app send deals and discounts to my card before heading back to CVS.
I love that the offers are always personalized according to our family’s shopping habits so we save money on the things we buy and use. Once my prescription is ready, I can quickly shop for the items that I need, scan my ExtraCare card at the register, and put any ExtraBucks towards my purchase to save money.
Did you know that when you download the CVS Pharmacy app and link your ExtraCare card for the first time, you get $5 in ExtraBucks rewards? Plus you get 2% back on most items in the store every time you shop!
Replenish family essentials with the CVS Pharmacy app
When my kids are really sick, I find that I hunker down and stay in the house with them. After awhile we start to run out of essentials and it’s helpful to know that I shop online directly via the CVS Pharmacy app.
With free shipping on orders over $49, the CVS Pharmacy app becomes a quick and easy way I can restock our essentials along with cold and flu remedies that are beginning to be depleted and get them shipped right to our door for no additional charge. The app is also able to check local store inventory to see if a particular product is available locally. Plus I can still enjoy all of the advantages that come with being an ExtraCare Rewards member.
