Sometimes it may seem like customer loyalty programs are behind your email address and other personal information. That being said, many of the programs offered by major pharmacies can actually save you money.
Here’s a breakdown of how you can shop at the pharmacy without breaking the bank, AARP reported for the first time.
CVS Pharmacy ExtraCare
With nearly 10,000 locations, CVS pharmacies seem to be on every corner. Your ExtraCare customer rewards program allows you to earn 2% on most purchases, even if there is a problem.
You do not earn money back with the program. Instead, you earn ExtraBucks, which can be spent on most items in the store. The real savings, however, are coupled with the pharmacy’s limited special offers: these offers are usually limited in time and limited to certain products, but they offer you the best performance.
For additional rewards, consider joining the ExtraCare BeautyClub and ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards programs. BeautyClub offers additional benefits for buying beauty items such as makeup and hair products, while the pharmacy program gives you $ 5 at ExtraBucks every time you fill out 10 prescriptions or receive vaccines at the store.
If you want to become a Premium Member, you can join CarePass for $ 5 a month or $ 48 a year to earn a $ 10 monthly reward, a 20% discount on CVS Health brand products, free shipping and free prescription purchases. day.
AARP suggests the CVS ExtraCare program for coupon cutters who are willing to look for weekly deals to get the most out of their ExtraBucks. ExtraCare registration is free and you can apply at the store, online or through the CVS app.
Rite Aid Rewards
With less than 2,500 locations, the chances of a Rite Aid store being on your block are significantly lower. But, AARP says digital savvy customers can get the most out of their rewards program.
Award members earn points in four ways: 10 points for every dollar spent on qualified products, 250 points for some in-store vaccines, 250 points for prescriptions of 30 days or less, and 750 points for long-term prescriptions. Members who are 65 or older can earn reward points five times on the first Wednesday of each month.
Those points can be converted to BonusCash for shopping, but there’s a problem: to convert your points, you have to sign in to your digital account through your online profile. This is also the only way to access the special, limited-time offer of the rewards program.
To get the most out of this service, look out for matching monthly (in-store) and weekly (online) deals that you can accrue for super savings. Rite Aid also offers BonusCash Challenges, an additional rewards program that sends personalized challenges to customers each month for higher points rewards.
You can sign up for Walgreens’ MyWalgreens rewards program in-store, online, or in-store to use the service at any of the chain’s 9,000 locations. While reward members only earn 1% of Walgreens Cash for purchases, they also receive a 5% refund on Walgreens brand products.
MyWalgreens members who are 55 or older can get the most out of it. The pharmacy organizes a First Age Day on the first Tuesday of each month, in which the elderly get an extra 20% discount on all their purchases. AARP members can also get this discount as well as higher cash rewards.
Offers and coupons can be found on the store’s website, as well as opportunities to earn extra Walgreens Cash for certain purchases. To get the most out of your subscription, consider joining the MyWalgreens Health Goals program, which rewards you with Walgreens Cash for completing fitness-related challenges each week. MyWalgreens credit card also increases your profits by up to 5% on Walgreens Cash Back for purchased items and 10% on Walgreens brand products. If you want to use the chain’s paper coupons, you’ll want to join Register Rewards to get your in-store discounts.
AARP suggests the MyWalgreens rewards program for physically active clients who are interested in participating in the Health Goals program.
