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?
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:
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!
