Last week, I posted about the new option to send your CVS coupons to your ExtraCare card in lieu of printing them at the Magic Coupon Machine! Read that post and learn about how you can also print your CRTs from your computer! Well, it appears that there is another perk to doing this. Tonight while I was planning my CVS trip for tomorrow, I noticed a few of my CRTs were going to expire tomorrow when I viewed them in my ExtraSavings account online. So I thought I’d print them in case I found a deal to go with them tomorrow. When I printed them, they printed with an expiration date of 2 weeks from today instead of tomorrow’s date, like the coupon End Date originally said in my ExtraSavings. I tried it on a couple more coupons and it did the same thing! Check this out:
This is what the coupon looks like under ExtraSavings in my ExtraCare account online. Notice the End Date of 6/17/14.
When I clicked the Print button, a separate window popped up with the coupon in it with an expiration date of 6/30/14!
It also updated the list in my ExtraSavings to show the new End Date of 6/30/14!
I think they print this way because that’s how almost all CVS email coupons print. They are designed to expire based on when the coupon was printed or sent to the ExtraCare card. I’m hoping this will stay the norm for these coupons — I would get in the habit of checking my account once a week and any coupons that expire that week, I would just print or send it to my card so that the expiration date extends. I don’t think that CVS would change it since most CVS stores accept expired CVS coupon anyway.
Try it with your ExtraSavings and let us know if you get the same result!
