I Signed Up for CVS Digital Receipts (And I Love It!)

This post was sponsored by CVS.  All views and opinions are my own.

Are you on a count down? I am. Between realizing the end of another year is happening AND all the holidays, parties, concerts, baking (the list goes on, of course) that happens between the end of November and January 1, I have just too much going on. An older relative once told me (okay maybe more than once) that it is important to keep things simple. I also know in business they say “KISS” (Keep it Simple, Stupid!), basically, when you can simplify: Do it!

When I’m wanting to lower my stress level, I know I need to keep it simple. The CVS ExtraCare Rewards program and their new digital receipts program Receipt You Later, especially, are helping me do just that.

By sending my receipts to my card, and also by saving coupons to my card, I’m carrying around a lot less mess in my wallet. While I love bargain shopping, this time of the year, between pricing items out, knowing what I need, and keeping receipts for potential returns, any time I can lighten the load, I’m taking that opportunity.

The new Receipt You Later digital receipts from CVS helps to enhance my shopping experience at CVS stores and online. Because CVS is one of the nearest shopping options  for my family, it is convenient to go in for a gallon of milk or tin foil at the last minute – I don’t get bogged down in the bigger stores, and I know that I’m always earning my ExtraCare deals!

Here is a screen shot of my digital receipt when I last shopped at CVS for holiday gift-wrapping necessities. I got it in my inbox just a few minutes after I made my purchase… and I didn’t have to stuff this paper receipt in my purse!I signed up for CVS Digital Receipts and I love it!

Plus, I’ve been keeping my receipts digitally so if I head into CVS three times a week, just over the course of the month between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I’m definitely saving trees (okay, maybe not). Well, I know my wallet is staying a lot cleaner! Since we use our phones for just about everything (let’s call them our command center, really!), it is only appropriate that CVS is listening.

The CVS Digital Receipts along with the CVS Extra Care App is allowing me to save more money too! Members like me receipt personalized benefits and digital coupons that I can save right to my CVS Pharmacy App. I also receive an email letting me know when deals I may be interested in are available at CVS. While I was reluctant to go digital with my receipts (I don’t know if my fear was truly a fear, or just something I was used to!), I am loving this new option. I know that just as much as you’re okay reading my blog online and don’t need to print what I’m saying, I can get my receipts and deals on my phone. It is a bit normal to be reluctant to change, luckily, I’ve now noticed the benefits to online receipts with digital receipts the CVS ExtraCare Rewards program. I started “doing both” but now, it is digital only for me!

Easy to do: To take advantage of digital receipts, simply opt-in while you’re in store. If you aren’t a member you will need to connect your email, but it is really easy to do. It takes a few moments and it will save you a lot of time and hassle in the long run.

While you’ll begin to receive your receipts via email, you’ll get more savings because they have special exclusive “opt in” savings waiting for you! Plus, when you see a deal you like from the Extra Bucks Rewards program online, you can send coupons to your card and you don’t even need to worry about losing the coupons in your wallet! You can also look up your Rewards on the app and see what Rewards are expiring so you know to use them!

CVS Pharmacy ExtraCare Program

CVS is going above and beyond with the CVS ExtraCare program. Now that I’ve been using the online features, I realize that they are able to give me personalized options and I’m seeing the deals they know I’ll use first. And, even though I knew I was already saving money by shopping CVS for my every day items (gifts, household products, beauty and even that gallon of milk), I am now receiving more rewards. As a member, I am receiving 2% cash back on each and every purchase! Plus, I’m getting personalized coupons and seeing additional deals through the CVS Extra Care App.

Please note, the CVS Pharmacy App is also available for those who have recurring prescriptions. And being able to see additional CVS stores while traveling is helpful too.

So, while I know that we have a lot to do and the pressure is on this holiday season (and the kids are still on break from school), at least I know that going through my receipts and organizing my wallet is going to be a lot easier with the new digital receipts from CVS. Now, the rest of the stores need to get on board!

    I had no idea CVS even did this! I love digital receipts because I always lose paper receipts way to easily and I love how this shows savings and gives coupons!

    Wow. Love that you’ve gone digital with your receipts. It’s so convenient, I agree. Cuts the clutter and helps tracking easy. And a great green start to the new year!

    I didn’t even know they had digital receipts, but that’s actually really cool. I’m all about having a true copy of receipts in my email, and not a piece of paper I will likely lose. Thanks for sharing this! xx Adaleta Avdic

    I definitely think we’ll see more and more stores do this. It’s the better option for the environment for sure. We don’t even offer paper receipts at the yoga studio anymore, all emailed to the purchaser

    I love this and need to do it! I hate those paper receipts. Such a waste and I’m constantly cleaning out my purse because it’s stuffed full of them!

  7. December 31, 2016 / 8:46 pm

    I love shopping from the app and the idea of not having paper receipts makes it even more appealing. The CVS app has been easy to use and I love the hidden savings that I find. I definitely need to sign up for this.

    Ooh, digital receipts are a great thing! I wish every store did this. So much better than a bunch of paper that just gets lost and is bad for the environment. Way to go, CVS!

    I have gotten addicted to digital receipts. It’s so much easier to just pull the receipt up on your phone rather than have to search everywhere for it.

  10. December 31, 2016 / 7:17 pm

    I agree that keeping things simple is the preferred way to go.
    I use CVS quite a bit and will check more into this system.

    Having digital receipts is the best idea ever. Paper ones are so hard to keep track of.

  12. December 31, 2016 / 3:07 pm

    I think the idea of a digital receipt is so great, saves paper and means you have it in a safe place if / when you need it! x

    This sounds like a great program and it would sure help keep us organized and more tidy! I don’t have a convenient CVS but I think there is one where I am moving to this year.

  14. December 31, 2016 / 2:37 pm

    All about the digital receipts – and so much easier to locate than that paper shoved in your wallet/purse! I also do wireless credit card statements… all saving those trees!

  15. December 31, 2016 / 5:19 am

    Digital receipts are awesome! I seriously hate paper clutter and keeping everything organized electronically would really help clear the clutter and keep everything neat and easy to find. Love that CVS is now offering this!

    I love CVS. They have so many great items that I can pick up while getting my prescriptions filled and I love their rewards.

    That’s wonderful to hear they are doing that! I use to be a store manager right out of college for half a year until I got into the computer management field I’m in now. I wish all stores were doing this!!! Emailed receites are great but they get lost in the mess.

  19. December 30, 2016 / 8:19 pm

    My cousin just told me about this and now I am reading about it here. I need to get on board and get this done. Thanks for sharing the details about the app, too.

  20. December 30, 2016 / 8:12 pm

    Think of all the paper I will save!!! Not to mention the coupons. I can NOT deal with paper coupons – I leave them, the expire, etc. This is meant for me!

  21. December 30, 2016 / 7:55 pm

    I have yet to go to a CVS pharmacy. I don’t even know if there is one in my area! But I love digital receipts and wish that more companies would do that but not spam you with promo emails!

  22. December 30, 2016 / 6:39 pm

    Best. Idea. EVER! I hate having to hold onto receipts, and if I’m being honest, I generally lose them anyway. This would save me so much hassle! I must sign up.

  23. December 30, 2016 / 6:38 pm

    That’s fantastic! I currently have a bin that is filled to capacity with receipts just in case I need to return something or find a printed coupon on one. I could definitely use less of those!
