Do Not Be a MoneyTrasher! Win a $100 CVS Gift Card

I’m just going to admit it.

I used to be a MoneyTrasher.

What is a MoneyTrasher? 

A MoneyTrasher is someone who doesn’t take advantage of how easy it is to save money at CVS/pharmacy. In fact, MoneyTrashers have the audacity to THROW OUT their ExtraBucks® Rewards!

I mean, I know how it happened. They didn’t look like real money, so it was easy to convince myself that it was just more paper that I needed to throw away.

But what VALUE I was trashing!

ExtraBucks® Rewards are like “free CVS money” that can be spent on just about anything at CVS.

When you throw out an ExtraBucks® Reward, you are throwing away cash. Now doesn’t that sound ridiculous?

Who throws away CASH?

MoneyTrashers do! 

Are you a MoneyTrasher? Maybe you are and you don’t even know it?

Here’s some information on the ExtraCare Program:

:: Every week, CVS will feature items in their weekly ad (we always give you a sneak peek of the upcoming CVS ad, so be sure to check in every week!) that will earn you ExtraBucks® Rewards. All you have to do is purchase these products and along with your receipt, an ExtraBucks® Reward will print out.

:: You can use your ExtraBucks® Reward on just about anything in the store! You can even use you ExtraBucks® Reward to purchase another product that will result in ANOTHER ExtraBucks® Reward. This is called “rolling”.

:: You can also grab savings and coupons by following CVS’s Social Media profiles, registering your email address and ExtraCare card on their website and by visiting the big red Coupon Center kiosk in most CVS stores.

:: Did you lose your ExtraBucks® Rewards? Well no need to worry. Check out CVS’s new Send to Card option:

ExtraBucks Send to Card option

Send to Card, the new digital savings option for ExtraBucks® Rewards, gives shoppers the choice to send their rewards and even online coupons digitally to their ExtraCare card for automatic redemption during their next shopping trip. For shoppers that prefer to print their ExtraBucks Rewards at home or in-store, that option remains available. For the average shopper that is looking to save money this could be a HUGE relief of not needing to clip coupons or keep track of ExtraBucks® Rewards – it’s now all on their card! Here is link for more info.

It’s so easy to be a MoneySaver at CVS, so don’t be a MoneyTrasher!

Did you know it’s quarterly bonus time at CVS right now? Be sure to head up to CVS to redeem your quarterly rewards!

Members earn back 2% of all dollars spent on  purchases,* and $1 ExtraBucks® rewards for every two  purchased.** These earnings are automatic, just for scanning your ExtraCare card during each shopping trip.

While you are up there redeeming your quarterly bonus, wouldn’t it be nice to have some money to spend?

    I print mine out at the coupon center. I normally use them to save more to keep my out of pocket down. Money always seems to be so tight, that it really helps when I dont have to spend much and just keep rolling the ECB’s. I LOVE CVS, but really need to start to shop better and more often there.

    I used to be a money trasher, so thank you for pointing out how lame that is. I am an ok coupon clipper, but I usually forget to bring them, so I just used send to card option and am excited about actually getting my savings! Plan to use my reward for next purchase of band-aids and other necessities this week, so my strategy this time is not fun stuff but lowering the overall bill. Will make sure send to card worked at checkout.

    I have to admit, I’ve never really been to CVS. In my defense, I never lived near one except for a couple of months (before I was aware of what great benefits and deals they have, like Extra Care bucks!). There is one in Elko (1 1/2 hours away, but on our way to everywhere) and I would still love to win the gift card! (Can’t answer the questions though, since they don’t apply)

  82. Maureen says

    I use them for the everyday items that my family needs.
    I had them printed up in the store.

  99. Brandi Price says

    Honestly I haven’t shopped CVS in a while so I have no EB to use. If I did I would use it on household items for the family.

    I do have a CVS card and have them sent to my card. I use the rewards for things I need like laundry soap, shampoo ect. I redeem them at the CVS I shop at.

    I will redeem them by having them sent to my card, this is so awesome! I would buy household items like soaps, kleenex, and some CVS brand over the counter medicines. Thanks! :)

  104. Saida A says

    I received $3 ECB for my quarterly reward, I sent it to my card. I usually try to use it to lower my overall bill and sometimes I splurge on myself. My birthday is coming up so I think I will spoil myself!!

  105. Felicia Plastini says

    I would redeem them as I need them. I usually buy household items or things for myself like makeup or hair care. I don’t usually splurge, I just buy what ever is needed in the household for whomever needs it.

  106. Peggy says

    I used them to offset my easter shopping

    I picked it up at the coupon center since I didn’t realize it was that time so it was a nice surprise

    I strategically bought my easter goodies for the kids, used coupons and extra bucks and ended up paying $1.94 for $13.00 worth of stuff and received $2.00 ECB back!!

  107. says

    I have not redeemed my quarterly bucks yet, since I just got them today. I imagine I will find some items that will earn more ExtraCare Bucks.
    My quarterly bucks printed when I picked up my prescription.
    I always use mine to strategically lower my household budget. Unless it’s at Christmas, then I may use them for stocking stuffers.

  108. HR says

    I’m not sure how I’ll redeem them yet, but I’m excited to! :) I will send the bonus to my card, I didn’t even know that was possible until your blog! :) I plan to buy household items and fun things I normally can’t afford, like air fresheners, batteries, and whatever fun things i can find ON SALE! :)

    I am already signed up to send ECBs to my card. I typically spend my quarterly bonuses to reduce my bill for things we need. This time around it was for shampoo and Easter candy. :)

  115. Kim B. says

    I redeemed mine at the store. I always get mine from the Coupon Center. I was intending to use it to make my OOP lower, but my little one got sick and I used it for Tylenol. That’s a-okay with me!!

  116. alisa says

    I can always stock up on off meds we use allegra and zantac a lot plus I can always use shampoo too. But as a treat maybe since it is spring I can get nail Polish next time. :) I print things at home.

  120. Michelle Spayde says

    I am just now reading up on how to save at CVS, but I would imagine that, at least at first, I would want to use a printed version.

  121. says

    I wish I had standard answers for the questions, but I do not. I have never shopped at CVS. I never lived in a place with a CVS. However, I do now! :) I am definitely going to take advantage of their savings!

    I am definitely going to use it towards my total for that week… I entered my code on the website and am expected to get them as of July. CVS never disappoints me with their sales so I am looking forward to using my rewards as well as coupon savings for all I need.

  125. Joyce Harrell says

    Yes, I am going to redeem my bucks. I printed them out and hope to buy soemthing a little extra special for my husband this week.

    I usually buy bottled water and soap/toothpaste/paper towels that are cheaper there than at the grocery

  128. Julie Lutz says

    I didn’t realize you could save them by sending them to your card. When one prints out i try to use it that day if i don’t unfortunatly it expires and I loose the ecb but from now on I plan on sending them to my card.

  129. Sadie says

    I redeemed my quarterly ExtraBucks on cereal. I picked them up at the Coupon Center. It helped with our food budget.

  131. Silvia says

    I still haven’t redeemed my extrabucks. I think I will send them to my card before hitting the store and use them to save on some cleaning supplies or make-up for me! But a $100 gift card…that would be awesome!

  132. Dixie H says

    I will use them toward my regular purchases to help save $$
    I need to print them at home cause I always forget to use the coupon center!
    Everytime I shop CVS I buy things on sale in their ad. I am going to have to do a lot more planning since hubby is injured & off of work.
