CVS Pharmacy announced the company will launch digital receipts as a new option for all members of its ExtraCare Rewards program. The new option will roll out in early June and eventually be available in 7,900 retail locations.

Customers will have the opportunity to opt-out of receiving paper receipts for all in-store purchases when completing their transactions in the front of the store. Once the one-time process is completed, customers will receive receipts digitally, along with their coupons and rewards, each time they shop at CVS Pharmacy.

The imminent chain-wide arrival of digital receipts was first unveiled last week on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, in a surprise appearance featuring CVS Pharmacy President Helena Foulkes.

To take advantage of digital receipts, customers must complete a simple, one-time opt-in process in store that includes enrolling in the ExtraCare Rewards program if they are not already a member, and providing a valid email address. Customers can do so at the front register by asking a store associate.

Faith Based Events

ExtraBucks Rewards and special offers are also available through the CVS Pharmacy app, making it easy for interested customers to go paperless, without having to worry about losing or forgetting paper rewards and coupons, or missing out on opportunities to save.

Today, the program continues to evolve, offering its 70 million active ExtraCare members personalized value, in store, online and on-the-go.

For more general information about ExtraCare, please visit CVS.com/extracare. To download the free CVS Pharmacy app, visitCVS.com/mobile or search “CVS Pharmacy” in the Apple iTunes store or in Google Play.
