Let’s jump into it
Sign up for the ExtraCare card
Another way to earn rewards at CVS is by signing up for ExtraCare Rewards. This program allows you to earn 2% back on purchases, as well as receive exclusive discounts and personalized deals.
All you have to do is sign up for free at a CVS store or online. After you sign up, be sure to link your ExtraCare card to your CVS account to access even more rewards and savings.
Sign up for an ExtraCare card online or in-store.
Purchase qualifying products for ExtraBucks rewards
By being strategic with your purchases at CVS, you can earn ExtraBucks rewards that can be used towards future purchases. Keep an eye out for qualifying products that offer additional ExtraBucks rewards.
These products can change weekly, so be sure to check the CVS weekly ad or sign up for the email list to stay up to date on current offers.
In addition to ExtraBucks rewards, the CVS app can provide additional savings.
By downloading the app, you can access deals and coupons that can be applied at checkout. Plus, you can link your ExtraCare card to the app for easy access to your ExtraBucks rewards.
Stack manufacturer and CVS coupons
Now that you’re signed up for ExtraCare rewards, it’s time to start stacking coupons.
By using both manufacturer and CVS coupons together, you can save big on your purchases.
CVS accepts one manufacturer coupon and one CVS coupon per item, so be sure to check both sources for discounts before making your purchase.
You can also stack multiple CVS coupons on one item for even more savings. Keep an eye out for deals that offer ExtraBucks rewards on top of these discounts to really maximize your savings.
Think like a couponer. You can combine manufacturer coupons, CVS coupons, and rebates to help build the amount of ExtraBucks Rewards you accumulate. Coupons can be used on most sale merchandise and buy-one-get-one promotions.
CVS accepts the following coupons:
- CVS coupons.
- Manufacturers’ coupons.
- Internet printable coupons (can refuse if coupon legitimacy is questionable)
- Competitors’ coupons on new or transferred prescription drugs.
Keep in mind, the 98% rule. This rule basically means that you have to reach 98% of the required purchase amount to earn your ExtraBucks..

Frequently Asked Questions
I can’t remember if I have an account. What can I do to find out?
First, you are not the only one. Your first step is to call 1-800-SHOP-CVS, or when you’re in-store, staff can look up your account by your name, phone number, or by email, if you added an email address to your account.
I forgot my card, and I am shopping in-store. How can I earn my ExtraCare bucks?
No worries. Just remember which phone number is associated with your registered account. All you have to say is that you forgot your card and they can look it up using your phone number.
Help! I lost my earned ExtraCare bucks. Am I out of the money that I earned?
CVS will work it out. If your ExtraCare bucks have not expired, you are in luck. Each one earned will be attached to your account only (and no one can redeem it but you). If you lost your ExtraBucks, call 1-800-SHOP-CVS to speak to an agent who can reissue the ExtraBucks. If they have expired, unfortunately, they cannot be reissued.
