My husband came home the other day and walked in with a huge box. We order a lot online, but I honestly couldn’t recall what we might have ordered that would have come in that large of a package!
I started to open the box and I saw the unmistakable fur of a Pillow Pet! Immediately I got nervous. Now, as a blogger, I do randomly receive items to review from PR people and more often than not there’s only one toy/stuffed animal/candy bar, etc.
Which is fine, and I certainly don’t expect anyone to cater to my 2 kid family. But this was a PILLOW PET. My kids are obsessed with these things.
So I was concerned, until I finally got the box open and lifted out the coolest PR gift I’ve ever received!
A CVS (LOVE CVS! It’s my go-to Drugstore Shopping spot!) shopping basket filled to the brim with goodies. Most importantly, with TWO Pillow Pets!
Here are the goodies that were included in my basket:
2 Pillow Pets (the smaller sized ones, which are perfect since my kiddos already have the large sized ones!)
A CVS Green Bag Tag (you attach this to your re-usable shopping bag and have the cashier scan it every time you shop. Four scans gets you a $1 ExtraBuck® Reward!)
Essence of Beauty Sponge
Trio Nut Blend (my daughter has confiscated these as her own!)
CVS/Phamacy peas Cold Therapy. No more frozen peas, this stays colder longer and conforms to the shape you need it to when cold!
CVS Earth Essentials Biodegradable Trash Bags
Divine Belgian Milk Chocolate (YUM!)
Nuance Shampoo & Conditioner and Beautiful Blends Eye Quad (the eye quad is so neat! I always end up breaking the tops of eyeshadow containers, this is much sturdier!
A brochure all about the ExtraCare® program at CVS!
Why did I receive this awesome package from CVS? CVS recently contacted me about working more closely with them. They know Family Friendly Frugality readers are savvy consumers and they know that you all love shopping at CVS!
Since it was a partnership that made sense, I agreed!
The great part of this partnership for all of you is that I’ll be given sneak peeks of upcoming sales and product specials to share with you. Which means as a Family Friendly Frugality reader, you’ll have insider knowledge of what’s coming up next at CVS!
How cool is that? I’m also hopeful that in the future we can work to provide CVS with feedback on what we love and what might need improvement. They’ve already proven that they listen (they knew I had TWO kids! Score for CVS PR!), so let’s let them know what we think!
What do you think about CVS? Do you enjoy shopping there? Why or why not? This is your chance to be heard. CVS wants to know what you have to say!
Disclaimer: I received this basket of goodies from CVS, but am under no obligation to tell you about it or to support CVS at all. I think the company is awesome though and I know many of you think so too, so that’s why I’m sharing! I have received no compensation from CVS and all opinions are my own.
