I’m on the CVS Holiday Savings Squad! And GIVING AWAY $100 Gift Card to CVS!

I’m so excited and honored to be on the CVS Holiday Savings Squad!

I’ve blogged about this before, but CVS has always been a part of my life. I grew up 2 miles from a CVS in my hometown of Barrington, RI… and it literally was the place I used to ride my bike to and meet my girlfriends. I will never forget buying my very first tube of lipstick there (Revlon’s Pink Foil), it was a happy day for me… and I wore it to my very first 8th grade Dinner Dance with Matt Homonoff!

And as I got older, CVS continued to be a part of my life. When I went off to college at Brown University, I used to frequent the CVS on Thayer Street in Providence, RI daily! From creams and soaps to makeup to candy to my magazines… it was my place. Even when I went off to NYC after college, I found a CVS in the City! It just felt comfortable to me, I knew CVS.

And now as a mother of 4… back in Rhode Island, CVS is still in my life. I still stock up on my makeup and lotions and creams and soaps… but now I’m also stocking up on things for the boys and household cleaners. Oh, yes… I’ve evolved with CVS! My needs and wants may have changed a bit, but CVS is always that go-to place for me… and I’ve been lucky enough throughout my life to live near a CVS. Honestly, I live 2.3 miles from one.

So… when CVS asked me to be part of their Holiday Savings Squad, I JUMPED at the opportunity because I am in awe and in love with their new Gift Card Promotion going on right now!

Oh, yes… NOW through December 25, 2011, members of CVS/pharmacy’s ExtraCare Rewards program can earn $10 gift cards to Macy’s, Gap, Applebee’s, Shell Stations, American Express, Barnes & Noble or CVS/pharmacy every week simply by spending $30 on products clearly marked as part of the “Earn Free Gift Cards” promotion. And don’t worry, these items will be marked conveniently in the weekly CVS/pharmacy circular and in-store.


And starting this week and for the next 4 weeks, I’m giving away a $100 Gift Card to CVS/Pharmacy!!!

How can you enter to win:

1. Leave me a comment
2. Tweet me why you love this promotion at @AudreyMcClellan
3. Email me at Audrey at MomGenerations.com


CVS/pharmacy is providing the gift cards for my winners and is compensating me for working with them on the Holiday Savings Squad.

    I have shopped at CVS for years also like you. I’ve gotten to know the cashiers and managers very well at my local store. I always tell them that I love shopping at CVS because they are always so sweet! They go out of their way to make me smile each time i visit. They make it a pleasure to shop at CVS! If I won the $100 Gift card I sure would have fun spending it at CVS!

  83. 11.17.11

    My son will tell you CVS is a great store because they carry MegaMan action figures and other toys that he can’t find anywhere else.

    I’m all about the variety, ours has enough square feet to have more options than some other stores do.

    I love love love CVS. I can get some excellent deals there that always have me returning. I bought two 40-count Zyrtec on sale for $18.99 each (which is a good price) but I also had coupons from Zyrtec rewards! So I received my $10 gift card and saved money!! I just got a CVS gift card and turned right back around and used it again. I bought $10 worth of Suave to get the extra bucks promotion, used my $10 gift card to pay for it and then received $3 extra bucks. You can’t beat that! and i love picking up a coloring book or small toy for my nieces while I am there.

    I am always in CVS, you really have to check the circular, but the deals are good. I buy all my health and beauty items at CVS and the majority of my paper products. I would use that $100 gift card to buy diapers for my newborn and Christmas presents for my nieces.

  88. 11.18.11

    Hello Audrey!

    I tried emailing but it says the server rejected or something any who…

    I don’t have a twitter account but I wanted to email you. Well am also a mother of 4 and let me tell you how much CVS has seriously helped my family in the tight budget we are on right now. I absolutely love the promotion with the gift card. Like a month ago it’s was the pampers brand diapers that were on the promotion and honey leg me tell you my 3 month old has enough diapers for awhile :)The promotion helps me so much this weeks promo helped me out with all my kids needs for school I got 30 dollars worth of candy. And they were able to take the candy for a Christmas event at school and then Got the 10 dollar gift card and used that to buy the suave body wash and then got back 3 ECB and used that to get the deordant that I needed! I was like ahhhhh I love CVS. My husband just freaks out when he sees how much that CVS helps us. I have to say I go there for everything I go there just to walk around sometimes. And I also stay close to one as well I stay a mile from one. I just love CVS it’s everything in a little store that’s not so little but carries just about everything you need. And then it’s 24 hours! I hope to win the gift card so I can get ready for black Friday I’ll definitely be at CVS! And that 100 dollars will go a loooong way for my family.



    CVS number one fan of the promotion! Keep it up guys! Muah!

    I love shopping at CVS – they’re sales are always items I need and locations are very convenient. I have about 4 stores within my commute to work and I’m always popping for something. Each week I receive their weekly emails and I have been taking advantage of their $10 Gift Card when you spend $30, it really helps with Christmas shopping! I get such great bargains there I’m always sharing with my friends – they call me an extreme CVS shopper!

    I love shopping at CVS because I can get in and out of the store. I first started using CVS to get easier access to prescriptions while I was in college. However, I now also go to CVS because they are so friendly couponers. I now have a Sunday ritual to go to CVS and get great bargains. Thanks for the opportunity to win the gift card!

    I grew up on CVS as well! My mom used to buy me Kudos bars from there, and then it became Sav-On in California. A few years ago CVS returned to California and I couldn’t be more excited about it! Now it’s my go-to store for all of the essentials. The get $10 when you spend $30 promotion is fantastic. It’s like CVS knows which products I’m going to buy anyway. Two weeks ago, I got a few boxes of Kashi cereal, some dishwashing liquid, a few bags of trail mix, and laundry detergent. It’s so easy to spend $30 on the products they pick each week. I got a $10 Shell card!

  112. 11.20.11

    CVS is so good for deals and all the items I need. Great to fill prescriptions right after Dr. Apts.

    Hello! Please pick me for the Cvs gift card. Cvs is walking distance from my house and Cvs acts as my supermarket, medication center, beauty store, present one-stop shop, and more. Cvs is my go-to store for just about everything. Now with twin girls on their way, I know cvs will be as much as a lifesaver for all my baby needs. As with two babies, it’s double the diapers and formulas, I would be much appreciative if I won the gift card. Please consider and choose me! Thank you- future mommy of twin girls and cvs fan!
