How Often Can I Scan My ExtraCare Card?

As often as you want! But, new coupons will be available weekly on Mondays at the coupon machine. When you scan your card for the coupons, make sure to keep scanning until the machine tells you “Hey Super Scanner! You’ve printed all your coupons”. This will ensure that you have printed all the coupons that are available to you.

Does Everyone Get the Same Coupons?

Coupons are given away randomly and based on shopping habits. Some coupons are given to everyone. It just depends. CVS resets the coupons based on your shopping habits on Monday mornings, so be sure to check back weekly! Keep in mind that you can only use each of these CVS Coupons ONCE.

Do I Have to Print the Coupons at Coupon Center?

No, you can actually print them at home or load them directly to your ExtraCare Card! If you want to see what coupons you have (before using the ExtraCare Coupon Center) these coupons can be accessed from your CVS account online or the CVS app.

Is There Anything Else I Can Do at the Coupon Center?

Yes, there is one more thing you can do with this machine. If you aren’t sure the price of an item, you can scan it at the coupon machine to find out the price.

So, now you know everything there is to know about the ExtraCare Coupon Center! Go forward and use this knowledge to get the best deals you can!

  1. This is the only pl;ace I could find to contact CVS about my extra care card. My card has been comprised and I have no idea who is doing it. I have received no coupons in a couple of months. I know it has to be someone who has my phone number and they are using it to get my coupons. I am very much into using my card and I download all my coupons. I decided to get another card. I have a question is there anyway I can send my coupons to my new card and close out the other card so it cant be used ? e-mail me back and Ill give you the information you need to help me with this problem. thank you so much.
