All my CVS shoppers will be as excited about this news as I am: CVS has released an official coupon policy!
If you want to avoid any issues over coupons, I recommend that you print out a copy and carry it with your coupons. Here are the highlights:
- Competitor coupons are not accepted at CVS/pharmacy.
- CVS/pharmacy does not currently accept coupon bar code images displayed on a smartphone, iPhone, Droid etc.
- The total value of the coupons may not exceed the value of the transaction (remember: Transaction is your TOTAL purchase – see below for overage on a specific item)
- Certain CVS/pharmacy coupons may be subject to state sales tax rules similar to third-party manufacturer coupons and sales tax may be charged on pre-coupon price
- CVS/pharmacy will not accept percent off coupons for sale and promotional items.
- In the event that any item’s price is less than the value of the coupon, CVS/pharmacy will accept the coupon only to the price of the item. CVS/pharmacy does not provide cash back in exchange for any coupons – The coupon amount will be reduced if it exceeds the value of the item after other discounts or coupons are applied. (For example, a $5.00 coupon for a $4.99 item will result in a $4.99 coupon value).
- CVS/pharmacy accepts one third-party manufacturer coupon and applicable CVS/pharmacy coupon(s) for the purchase of a single item, unless prohibited by either coupon offer.
- CVS/pharmacy accepts multiple identical coupons for multiple qualifying items as long as there is sufficient stock to satisfy other customers, unless a limit is specified. Management reserves the right to limit the quantity of items purchased.
- CVS/pharmacy accepts valid internet/print at home coupons containing a barcode.
