"Because of our ExtraCare program, we know our customers and what they want from their beauty shopping experience at CVS/pharmacy," said Cheryl Mahoney, Vice President of Beauty Care for CVS/pharmacy. "The launch of the CVS/pharmacy Beauty Club, which is the first-ever beauty rewards program for the chain-drug channel, takes the value of ExtraCare to the next level for our beauty customers by offering insider access to deals, expert tips and exclusive product access and information. The CVS/pharmacy Beauty Club is an extension of our commitment to the beauty customer and further positions CVS/pharmacy as the destination for beauty."
The ExtraCare program was created in 2001 to reward loyal customers with discounts and provide them with information and offers relevant to their personal needs. The program rewards customers with 2% back on purchases in ExtraBucks(R) rewards, and $1.00 ExtraBucks(R) rewards to spend on front store merchandise for every two prescriptions purchased. ExtraBucks(R) rewards are like free CVS/pharmacy money, which can be used on nearly anything in the store. In addition to these quarterly rewards, each week certain items offer instant ExtraBucks rewards on qualifying purchases. Today, CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare is the largest retail loyalty program in the U.S. with more than 66 million active members.
