Before the age of apps, I would always hand over my key ring to the person at the register to have them scan my CVS ExtraCare Rewards card. I loved the instant savings and the gratification of ExtraCare Bucks that printed at the register. But sometimes I’d walk to our local CVS or drive my husband’s car and find myself without my ExtraCare Rewards card number. *insert sad face here *
Thankfully the age of relying on key tags on a keyring to score deals are gone. These days the CVS Pharmacy app on my smartphone allows me to take advantage of ExtraCare deals and rewards but also puts a wealth of features at my fingertips whether I’m in-store or at home.
If you tend to open the CVS Pharmacy app just to scan your ExtraCare Card at the register, there’s so much more the app can do! These seven features of the CVS Pharmacy app will help you maximize its use to help save you money, streamline shopping trips, and even get organized for tax time!
7 Features of the CVS Pharmacy App to Start Using Today
Missed the Sunday paper with the CVS circular?
View the weekly ad through the CVS Pharmacy app. Tap on Deals & Rewards on the home screen and you’ll find Weekly Ad on the top navigation bar. Tapping on it pulls up a digital version of CVS Pharmacy circular that looks exactly the same as the printed on in your Sunday paper!
Wondering when you’ll be eligible for your next BeautyClub Reward?
View the ExtraCare BeautyClub progress bar to know exactly how much more you’ll need to spend before earning your next reward.
You can also keep an eye on other ways to save money on beauty purchases through the Deals & Rewards button that always appears at the top of the home screen of the app. Today I found a $3 off $12 cosmetics coupon that I sent to my card!
Forgot your wallet at home?
CVS Pay makes it easy to pay for your purchases using your mobile phone.
If you’re already using the CVS Pharmacy app, here are my 5 Reasons to Use CVS Pay and How to Set it Up in the CVS Pharmacy App and my quick video tutorial to get you set up and using it.
Need a last minute gift to send to loved ones?
Grandparents, aunts, uncles, and favorite family friends will always love photos of your kids so why not try CVS Photo Center! The CVS Pharmacy app allows you to use the Photo Center feature to print photos right from your phone to pick up in store. I love that I can print photos from my computer, Facebook, or Instagram as I’m thinking about it, have them sent to my local store, pick them up on my way home, and still make it to the post office to get them in the mail for the last pick up of the day! Here’s my video tutorial on how to print photos from the CVS Pharmacy app!
Remembered it’s your day for soccer snacks on the way to the game?
Order from your phone and swing by your local store to have snacks and drinks delivered right to your car thanks to CVS Curbside Pickup. I tried CVS Curbside Pickup for the first time this past June when the end of the year crazy was getting to me! I couldn’t believe how easy it was! There’s a reason I called CVS Curbside Pickup a busy parent’s lifesaver!
Sick kid and the pediatrician’s office is closed for the day?
Open the CVS Pharmacy App and scroll down to MinuteClinic to find the closest clinic with the shortest wait time.
While you’re at your neighborhood CVS, pick up what you need to help your little one feel better. If their illness keeps you confined to the house and you start to run short on items, tap on Curbside Pickup, select the items you need, and swing by to get them without having to leave your car.
Overwhelmed by receipts for health and personal care items at tax time?
If you’re collecting receipts to tally for your medical flexible spending account (FSA), you can let the CVS Pharmacy app do that for you! Digital receipts help streamline paperwork for taxes! Paperless receipts are sent to your email to help you stay organized as you file them for future reference at tax time. Just ask to sign up the next time you’re in your local CVS!
So go ahead, declutter your keyring, and ditch that key tag once and for all and make your CVS Pharmacy app work for you! If you don’t have the CVS Pharmacy app yet, here’s are 3 different ways to get it now:
- Text “App” to CVS-APP (287-277)
- Download it from the Apple App Store
- Get it from Google Play for Android devices
