CVS/Pharmacy is rolling out a new promotion that will allow its customers to not only be able to save on everyday items but also at the pump. The promotion begins June 1 and runs through July 19.

How does it work? Well, it’s simple when you have a CVS ExtraCare Card. Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, when customers spend $30 on participating products using their ExtraCare cards, they’ll receive a $10 FREE Gas Card to Shell, ExxonMobil or BP Amoco;
  2. Product categories included in the promotion range from summer health necessities to personal care products to food and beverages; and
  3. Products that qualify for the promotion will be clearly marked both in myWeekly Ad and in-store. Shoppers can look for the gas pump symbol to identify items they can purchase towards the promotion each week.

Summer is peaking around the corner and so are the summer vacations. That means more driving and higher gas prices. CVS would like to take the pressure off families and help them enjoy the summer and gain control again of the traditional “family vacations” that have slipped through these financially trying times.

"This promotion is back by popular demand, offering ExtraCare members savings at the pump just by shopping at CVS/pharmacy," said Judy Sansone, Senior Vice President of Merchandising for CVS/pharmacy. "We know it's a busy time of year, and this is the latest way we are delivering personalized value to our loyal shoppers."

The qualifying items will be clearly marked in the circulars or myWeekly Ad, a personalized version of the weekly circular, or through in-store signage in the seasonal aisle at select locations. They will also be tagged with a "Free Gas Card" icon to make them easily identifiable.

Once ExtraCare customers reach $30 on participating products, a special coupon will print on their receipt that can be redeemed immediately in store for the gas card. If customers prefer to wait to redeem their coupon, they have up to 30 days to do so.

*Limit one redemption per week for each ExtraCare cardholder.
