Thrifty Spending Issue 103: Money Saving Tip

The ExtraBucks Rewards at CVS can be overwhelming when you first sign up, but it is one of those loyalty cards that pays off.

Here’s how the program works:

  • Earn 2% cash back (in the form of ExtraBucks Rewards) on most purchases. Alcohol, tobacco and a few other products don’t qualify.
  • Earn more ExtraBucks Rewards on specially marked purchases. You can see all the high earners in the weekly ad.
  • Redeem your ExtraBucks Rewards automatically four times a year.

If you shop at CVS frequently, those rewards rack up pretty quickly, but what’s really worth it is their coupon kiosk. It’s typically located up front, and all you have to do is swipe your card and the kiosk prints out in-store coupons.
