WOONSOCKET, R.I., May 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CVS Pharmacy today announced the company will launch digital receipts as a new option for all members of its ExtraCare Rewards program. The new option for digital receipts 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 on Friday evening on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, in a surprise appearance featuring CVS Pharmacy President Helena Foulkes. The show acknowledged the enthusiastic and passionate feedback shared by millions of customers – including host Jimmy Kimmel himself, who has put CVS Pharmacy receipts and ExtraCare Rewards in the spotlight several times in the past. Jimmy Kimmel Live airs weeknights at 11:35|10:35c on ABC.
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.
"We are excited to roll out the much-anticipated launch of digital receipts. We heard loud and clear that while our customers love receiving coupons and special offers, many wanted a paperless option," said Helena Foulkes, President, CVS Pharmacy. "This feature lets our customers continue to make personalized choices as to how they engage with us, and will let our members choose to say 'So long!' to the long paper receipts at check-out."
Once enrolled, ExtraCare members will have all receipts delivered digitally via email. Members will continue to receive exclusive benefits, personalized savings offers, available ExtraBucks Rewards and more, which can be redeemed in store by using a smartphone, tablet or computer, and then simply selecting the "send to card" button found next to each offer. Additionally, all personal preferences are saved for future transactions. Customers will always be able to specifically request a paper copy of their receipt at the time of the transaction, if they would like to receive one.
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.
The ExtraCare Rewards program is the gold standard among retail rewards programs and the longest running in the drugstore space with a 15-year history of providing meaningful rewards to its loyal member base. Today, the program continues to evolve, offering its 70 million active ExtraCare members personalized value, in store, online and on-the-go.
