WOONSOCKET, R.I., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- CVS/pharmacy, America's largest
retail pharmacy, today announced a special promotion called "Double My Bucks!"
that offers double Extra Bucks rewards to customers purchasing prescriptions
from May 1 through June 15 at any of CVS/pharmacy's more than 6,900 locations.
By simply presenting a Double My Bucks! certificate along with their ExtraCare
card, shoppers will receive $2 Extra Bucks for every two prescriptions filled.
"Last year, CVS/pharmacy customers earned nearly $95 million in Extra
Bucks savings from their prescription purchases," said John Barron, Director
of Relationship Marketing at CVS/pharmacy. "Reducing healthcare costs is a
priority for most Americans and CVS/pharmacy remains committed to helping our
customers do just that. In fact, CVS/pharmacy is the only pharmacy that pays
customers back for purchasing prescriptions. We're excited to offer 'Double My
Bucks!' to help our customers save even more money on health care and thank
them for choosing CVS/pharmacy as their pharmacy."

Starting on May 1, "Double My Bucks!" certificates are available at the
pharmacy counter at any CVS/pharmacy store and online at CVS.com; to find the
nearest store consumers can visit http://www.CVS.com/storefinder.
Additionally, "Double My Bucks!" certificates are included in the weekly store
circulars throughout the month of May.
Cardholders have until June 15 to present the certificate with their
ExtraCare card to take advantage of the special offer. Shoppers who redeem
"Double My Bucks!" certificates will receive their doubled Extra Bucks in
their quarterly Extra Bucks rewards on the bottom of their receipts in their
first visit in July.
Ways to Save Throughout the Year with ExtraCare:
By using an ExtraCare card, CVS/pharmacy shoppers earn Extra Bucks rewards
on nearly all purchases. Extra Bucks are like free CVS money. Throughout the
year cardholders earn 2% back on non-prescription purchases and $1 Extra Buck
for every two prescriptions purchased. Some Extra Bucks offers are instant
coupons that print when you purchase specially advertised products, and
quarterly Extra Bucks rewards are issued to cardholders in their first visit
in January, April, July and October. These rewards are issued to cardholders
at the end of each quarter on the bottom of your receipt and by email to
cardholders that have provided an email address at CVS.com.
CVS/pharmacy's ExtraCare program is the largest retail rewards program in
the nation, with more than 50 million active cardholders. Enrolling in
ExtraCare is easy and takes less than two minutes in-store or online at
CVS.com. The program is free and members receive benefits such as money-saving
offers on register receipts in addition to Extra Bucks rewards and instant
Extra Bucks. ExtraCare cardholders can also provide their email address with
their secure account online, to receive special savings and health & beauty
information directly to their email inboxes.
