When our family relocated it was time to not only find a new home, but also a new pharmacy home as well. My son has serious asthma and my husband has Congestive Heart Failure, so a dependable pharmacy is on the top of my “to-do” list whenever we have to relocate. My brother worked at CVS at the time of our move and highly recommended shopping there due to their extracare rewards program. Over time, little by little I have received extrabucks from CVS that can be used as cash in their store for about anything outside of the pharmacy drugs themselves and a few other minor things.
Until recently, my largest extrabuck has been $5.00, so I decided to hang on to it until I came across just the right sale to use it. In the meantime, I was awarded a 50-cent extrabuck and then came a whopping $10.00 extrabuck! This totally made my day and I began perusing the ads to see what I could get the best deal on. It wasn’t long before I spotted a crazy pair of “as-seen-on-TV” puppy slippers on sale at CVS as well as a certain package of soap that we love at our house. So, I stopped in to see what kind of damage I could do with my extrabucks.
Sure enough, I was allowed to use all three extrabucks together on one purchase. I bought the soap for $5, a tube of toothpaste for $3, and the silly slippers for $20 and walked out spending less than $14 out of my pocket. That was less than the slippers to begin with. As if I wasn’t already a fan of my beloved CVS before, they are now stuck with me forever, and ever!
