ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards™



Benefits of joining

The ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards™ program is the only way to earn rewards for your prescription purchases. Any prior prescription rewards program has been replaced by this program. Plus, you can earn on immunizations, online activities and more, too. See all the ways you can earn.

Everyone can join and membership is free. Rewards cannot be earned for prescriptions purchased in Arkansas, New Jersey or New York; on any prescriptions for controlled substances purchased in Hawaii or Louisiana; or on any prescriptions transferred to a CVS/pharmacy® in Alabama, Mississippi or Oregon.

Protecting your privacy

When you join, you’ll need to sign a HIPAA Authorization. This authorization allows CVS/pharmacy® to record the prescription earnings of each person who joins the ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards™ program. A separate authorization is necessary for each person who joins. Adults 18 years and older must sign individually; parents or guardians can sign for children under 18.

Your signed authorization is valid for 1 year. You’ll need to sign again each year to maintain enrollment and continue earning within the program.

You can cancel your HIPAA Authorization, which will end your membership in the ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards program, at any time. Click here to opt out.

If you joined Pharmacy ExtraBucks Rewards™, the HIPAA Authorization you signed will remain in effect for 1 year from the date it was signed. You’ll continue to earn under the ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards program until your authorization expires. At that point, you’ll need to sign again to stay in the program and keep earning.

Protecting your health information

We require your store number, prescription number, date of birth and ExtraCare® card number when you sign up for ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards™ online. We'll use this information to properly match online users with ExtraCare membership to ensure that earnings and rewards are recorded for the correct person. (Note: If you don't have a current prescription number, you can still join in stores starting 2/12/13.)

When you first join, your pharmacy record will load your ExtraCare number to link that you purchased a prescription (it won't contain any medical information about the prescription) back to the ExtraCare account. If necessary, your contact information (including your full name, address and phone numbers) will be used to update the ExtraCare account.

After you join, your contact information will be used to communicate with you about ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards benefits, related new programs and offers.

In addition, each program member sharing the same ExtraCare card will be identified separately for the accumulation of Pharmacy & Health ExtraBucks Rewards™. To calculate rewards, ExtraCare will receive the quantity of prescriptions purchased, immunizations administered and other actions that count toward rewards for each of you.

Household members sharing the same ExtraCare card will only be able to see the membership status for those who have joined, how many credits and rewards have been earned, and how they were earned. Specific medication information will not be visible.

Please note: Because CVS/pharmacy is serious about your privacy, we will let you know what additional health information will be part of any new programs under ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards and ask you to join that particular program. This additional information won't be used or shared if you don't join.

Joining the program

Each person just needs to give us one prescription number to join. That'll help us link ALL of your CVS/pharmacy prescriptions to your ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards™ membership and you'll get credit when you refill them.

You don't need a new ExtraCare® card to join ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards™. You can keep using your existing card. If everyone in your family uses the same card, you can all keep sharing the same card. However, only those family members who signed up for ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards will earn rewards under the program.

But in order to protect your privacy, you can't use your phone number instead of your ExtraCare card to join. Your ExtraCare number is a unique number tied to your ExtraCare membership; phone numbers are not unique across all cards and can't be used to join the program. If you no longer have your card, call 1-800-SHOP CVS and request a replacement.

Earning rewards

You'll earn toward your Pharmacy & Health ExtraBucks Rewards™ even if someone else picks up your prescription. Your earnings will be applied to the ExtraCare® card that was used when you joined the program.

Each person sharing an ExtraCare card doesn't have to earn 10 credits before the $5 Pharmacy & Health ExtraBucks Rewards will print. While you earn credits individually, the rewards will be paid out once the combined total of credits on the card reaches 10.

Your $5 Pharmacy & Health ExtraBucks Rewards will be issued approximately 1 week after every 10 credits have been earned. Rewards will print on the receipt or at the ExtraCare Coupon Center. They're also available on CVS.com®. To collect your rewards online, you'll need to have or Create a CVS.com Account and link your ExtraCare card when prompted. Then sign in to your account and go to the My Savings & Rewards tab in ExtraCare.

Your Pharmacy & Health ExtraBucks Rewards can be used like free CVS money* on most items throughout the store. They cannot be used to purchase prescriptions, alcohol, gift cards, lottery, money orders, postage stamps, pre-paid cards or tobacco products.

Each person can earn $50 Pharmacy & Health ExtraBucks Rewards per year. The limit is only for rewards earned from the ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards program. Balances reset every year on December 31, which means that your credits expire and you can begin earning again if you reached your earnings limit during the year.
