Just revving up in the world of coupon savvy moms is the CVS Double Bucks program. This week, through March 15, you’ll soak up double ECB’s (Extra Care Bucks) on CVS brand goodies and (yes) even prescriptions.
There are a few qualifiers though:
- You must have a Double Bucks certificate to present with your old faithful Extra Care Card when you shop. Get your saving certificate online, through circulars or in stores (ask if you don’t see them. I found mine near the flyer rack in the store).
- Unfortunately we must wait to receive these “extra” Extra Care Bucks till the first week in April, (when the other quarterly bucks are available). However, you can rack up a ton by carefully planned shopping till then, so the wait- though difficult- will be worthwhile.
- How it works: You’ll earn 4 percent back on all CVS brands, (instead of usual 2%) and obtain $2 worth of ECB’s for every prescription filled. (Normally you’d earn a dollar for each script).
- Rewards for the “double bucks” will be printed on your register receipt or available online in your Extra Care account for printing the first week in April.
Don’t forget that this applies to all CVS brand products. Shop paper products, cleaning supplies, medications and even CVS brand health and beauty items. If you haven’t tried some of the latter, this might be the time to sample and compare store brand competitors of big name brands like Pantene or Head and Shoulders. Also, about every other month CVS gives a free product to reward members via email printable coupon. Start looking for those soon, as they should be landing in your inbox between now and February 01.
