WOONSOCKET, R.I., May 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for Memorial Day weekend and the unofficial start of summer, CVS/pharmacy today announced the return of the "Free Gas Card" promotion, a program designed to help customers save on gas while shopping for everyday essentials at participating CVS/pharmacy locations nationwide. From June 1 through July 19, members of the ExtraCare® program can earn one $10 gift card every week simply by spending $30 on specially-marked items found conveniently in the weekly ad. As a bonus, customers can also enjoy the "Free Gas Card" promotion during the week of May 18, offering extra savings to customers as they prepare for Memorial Day cookouts and road trips.
"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."
Members of the ExtraCare program can earn one $10 gift card to Shell, ExxonMobil or BP Amoco by spending $30 on hundreds of specially-marked summer picnic, summer health and personal care items. Customers can find the qualifying products throughout the weekly CVS/pharmacy circular beginning May 18, online via myWeekly Ad, a personalized version of the weekly circular, or through in-store signage in the seasonal aisle at select locations. All qualifying products will 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. There is a limit of one redemption per week for each ExtraCare cardholder.
