How to Save on Things You’re Already Going to Buy

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love saving money.  It’s like a thrill to me when it comes to shopping!! Some of you might remember from my other post that I started blogging with a coupon blog.  Yep, true story.  SaveWithSarah.com, it’s still live, but you probably won’t find anything too interesting over there…maybe some day.

Anyways, back to saving money.  I wanted to share with you all an app that takes the hard work out of saving for you.  You most likely already shop at CVSPharmacy, but what you might not have done is download their app.  It is a must!! I shared over here why it is the must have app of the year.  Now, I want to explain to you how it works when it comes to saving money.


If you are an avid CVS shopper, like myself, you already know about the ExtraCare Rewards program.  The CVS ExtraCare Rewards program has set the gold standard with retail rewards programs and is the longest running in the drugstore space with a 15 year history. When it is still going strong after 15 years, you know it works.  I always get so excited when I get to check out and find out I have some ExtraBucks to spend!

Users love the ExtraCare program because it is truly designed with shoppers in mind – offering personalized value to each and every member, in the store, online and on-the-go. but what you might not realize is by downloading their app you can get even more rewards. Yes, that means more savings!! Cha-ching!

Through the ExtraCare Rewards program, shoppers can save and earn rewards on nearly everything they buy – from household goods, to beauty products, to gifts items for family and friends.  But, the coolest part about the app? It is actually customized with YOU in mind.  For example, if you get allergies (sadly, that would be me) and start stocking up on that Zyrtec, the app will actually start generating offers around your purchase.  You might score a 20% off coupon you can use towards your allergy medicine.



Or maybe you always use the same shampoo, the CVS Pharmacy app will register that and start to send you savings.  It is so crazy how much the app learns about you.  But, trust me you’ll appreciate it. You can easily re-order previous orders directly through the app, talk about a time saver!! You can shop online via the app: Pick out your essentials via the CVS Pharmacy app and enjoy free shipping on orders over $49. Or, if you’re looking to see if a particular product is available at your local CVS Pharmacy, the app will check the store inventory for you.

You can opt-in for email offers through the ExtraCare Rewards program, which you’ll receive rewards based on your shopping habits through email or on yourCVS Pharmacy app. For example, if you only purchase Dove deodorant, you might receive a $2 off coupon for Dove’s new clinical strength deodorant.  It customizes your savings based on your specific shopping habits. Plus, you’ll get emails reminding you (BONUS: with special offers) of refills you might need with common things like your shampoo.


ExtraCare goes a step beyond the average loyalty program by sending offers and personalized information to everyone, not just the organized couponer. In fact, ExtraCare members also receive 2% back on most purchases that can be redeemed every quarter as Quarterly ExtraBucks (think: free CVS money!).Customers can opt-in to receive additional health and beauty information directly to their email inboxes and information of new products available to customers.

Of course, you know I love staying up to date via social media.  If you want to find out more about CVS Pharmacy you can connect with them below:
