You can get cash back on every purchase with an ExtraCare card.

You can earn 2 percent back on every purchase you make in a store and on the CVS Pharmacy website with an ExtraCare card, according to CVS Pharmacy. CVS logs every purchase you make. Every three months, the rewards you earned will print on your latest receipt from CVS. You can then use those rewards, such as a gift certificate, to buy anything in the store. You can sign up for a free ExtraCare card in a CVS store or online.
