      I made about $20 off this program – sad to see it go. What are they going to replace it with?

        Nothing- I’m sure they’re trying to cut corners so they don’t lose more money!

      Ok this makes me very unhappy, I loved this program and used mine all the time.

      I faithfully brought my bag and tag almost everytime I went to CVS. This is going to make it harder and it is already much tougher to ‘cvs.’
      I used to roll 50.00 per month. Now I have 7 extrabucks. I still love CVS but I am getting frustrated and wonder if I should bother.
