CVS pharmacy

For all you CVS shoppers, there is a fun pilot program starting this week is select areas.  CVS is increasing Pharmacy ExtraBucks Rewards in a particular group of markets, with Charlotte NC being one of them.

Currently, CVS allows ExtraCare members to get a $1 ExtraBuck reward for every two prescriptions you get filled.  The new program though allows you to sign up online or in the store to earn $5 Pharmacy ExtraBucks Rewards for every 5 filled prescriptions. Each enrolled member can earn up to $50 a year.

One of the biggest differences is that this limit is not a “per household” limit, but per enrolled member in a household. This means that you can earn Pharmacy ExtraBucks Rewards on every member in your household.

Better yet, these Pharmacy ExtraBucks Rewards will print for you about a week after you fill your fifth prescription, so you don’t have to wait until the end of the quarter to redeem them.

This program launched yesterday in these areas:

Charlotte, NC
Cleveland-Columbus, OH
Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN
Oklahoma City, OK
Portland-Auburn, ME

They really are looking at bringing this to every city though and would love feedback on the program.  I gave them my feedback on this being a great way to compete with fuel rewards programs at local grocery stores.

Help out CVS by sharing any feedback on their Facebook page or leaving a comment below and I’ll share it with them.  Their intention is to roll out a comprehensive prescription reward program chain-wide next year.
