CVS Curbside Pickup

This is a sponsored post in partnership with CVS/pharmacy.

If you’re a busy parent I guarantee that saving time is a top priorities. During the summer months finding ways to make errands shorter not only help me spend more fun time with my girls but also helps leaves me less stressed.

Ever find yourself dreading going in the store? Yeah me too! Sometimes you have a sleeping baby you really don’t want to wake up, sometimes it’s a battle to justify getting everyone in and out of the store, and other times I’m under the weather and just wish I could just stay in my car with my sniffles.

Whatever reason you dread going into the store help is here.

I recently discovered CVS/pharmacy’s new Curbside Pickup, a really cool, time-saving feature.

Here’s How It Works:

Head to the CVS Mobile app or the CVS website. Find a location near you and follow the instructions for Curbside Pickup to start shopping.

 

CVSPharmacy App

 

After processing your order CVS will text you that your order is ready and send you a pickup pass to use once you get to the store. (You can also track your order.)

Typical transactions may take around an hour to fill.

Once you receive the text that your order is ready head to the CVS you placed your order with and find the CVS Curbside Sign like this:

 

CVS Curbside Pickup Sign MommyBKnowsBest

 

Then you wait for your order to be brought out to your vehicle.

The CVS employee scans the pickup pass and your transaction is complete.

Quick Details:

· The service is currently available in 3 select regions (with plans to roll out later on): Charlotte, Atlanta and San Francisco

· To use the service, customers can choose from thousands of non-prescription items through either the CVS Mobile App or website, and have them delivered curbside at a local CVS Pharmacy location within an hour

· No markups or added costs (LOVE this!!!)

· You can link your ExtraCare number to your CVS.com account and earn quarterly ExtraBucks Rewards and receive weekly ad sale prices on CVS Curbside Pickup orders (please note: item pricing will vary by store)

My Experience:

 

CVS Curbside Pickup Purchase MommyB

 

The service is awesome. It’s easy to shop and add your items if you know what you’re looking for. You can check out their featured items, search by department, or the search bar allows you to find exactly what you’re looking for.

During my use I put an item in my cart that wasn’t available at my local store. The system texted me right away letting me know I had to update my order and the store even called to clarify. Though they’re working out a few bugs I know I get the service of a live person at the store who is working hard to ensure my satisfaction.

I realized a couple of the items I had in my cart were on sale either with coupons from my ExtraCare Card or the store’s regular sale prices. Yippee!!

After placing my order I received the text it was ready within about 10 minutes.

 

CVS Curbside Pickup Ready MommyB

 

We hopped in the car (really I could have taken them without shoes or in their jammies since we didn’t have to get out of the car, hooray!!!) Once we pulled into the CVS parking lot my sister timed how long we waited for our items and it was under a minute!!! I was pretty impressed, and the service was excellent.

Seriously, doing this every time I shop would be a huge blessing. I love that CVS is starting this service and hope that more places follow suit. Now I can grab sunscreen on our way to the park if I forget it or order medicine for a headache and snacks for the kids while I’m running errands. Because we all know even the most well-behaved kiddos sometimes have a hard time “running into the store” and sometimes we just “don’t wanna”.

Breaking News – CVS/pharmacy Goes Tobacco-Free and Stops Selling Tobacco Products

I can’t say I’m not elated about the HUGE stance CVS/pharmacy is taking by not selling tobacco products starting this Fall. As the daughter of smoking parents, they know how I feel, and while I know it’s a hard habit to break, I love the reasons behind CVS/pharmacy’s big tobacco free decision and look forward to a healthier America and am so glad a great brand is taking a HUGE step in the right direction.

CVS Tobacco Free MommyB

CVS Caremark’s corporate mission is focused on helping put people on a path to better health. This morning, CVS Caremark announced that they will stop selling cigarettes and other tobacco products at their more than 7,600 CVS/pharmacy stores by October 1, 2014.

“Now more than ever, pharmacies are on the front lines of health care, becoming more involved in chronic disease management to help patients with high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. All of these conditions are made worse by smoking, which is the leading cause of premature disease and death in the U.S., with more than 480,000 deaths annually. Because of this, this is the right thing for us to do and something we need to do for our customers.

Our decision to stop selling tobacco products is consistent with the positions taken by the American Medical Association, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, American Lung Association and American Pharmacists Association that have all publicly opposed tobacco sales in retail outlets with pharmacies.”

In addition to removing tobacco products and cigarettes for sale in their stores, this Spring CVS Caremark will be launching a national smoking cessation program with the goal of helping millions of Americans quit smoking.

Big thumbs up for this initiative and who knows maybe other drugstores will follow suit and help the 7 out of 10 smokers that want to stop smoking.

Here’s to a healthier America. Mom & Dad if you’re reading this you know what I’m thinking…….

 

The opinions and thoughts expressed in this post are my own. I was not compensated in any way by CVS/pharmacy to write about this. Because it is a topic that is personal and lays heavy on my heart I chose to bring this message to you. I work with CVS/pharmacy and believe they are a great brand and have been a customer for years and will continue to be especially if their direction continues to help others get healthy and stay healthy.

CVS/pharmacy Announces myWeekly Ad Customized Savings

This post is sponsored by CVS/pharmacy in conjunction with media events and product I receive by working with them.

This past Friday, September 13th, CVS/pharmacy rolled out a great new feature that is bound to help you and your family shop for the items you buy most and save on them too!

Let me introduce you to the CVS/pharmacy myWeekly Ad.

myWeekly Ad reinvents the traditional circular – instead of 45 million people checking one circular to see all the same sales and deals on the front page and inside, those 45 million people can access their own version of the weekly sales ad – and each of you will see the deals and sale items for the week that matter most to you! You’ll be able to easily find the best deals on your favorite, frequently-purchased products, as well as create detailed, sharable shopping lists and even quickly scan all the items you can buy to earn circular ExtraBucks Rewards that week.

If you want to see for yourself, head to CVS.com/myWeeklyAd.

MyWeeklyAd

During your first visit, you’ll want to click on the “Sign Up Now” button to customize your profile using your ExtraCare Card number (you can sign up HERE if you don’t have one) and the usual name, address, phone etc. Once you set your password and verify you’ve read the Terms of Service you are ready to start browsing your custom circular. Next time, you can go ahead and enter your email and password that you just created and your savings will be waiting for you.

Check out an example of some of my savings: 

MyWeekly Ad CVS

Aside from saving my family money, I love that I can place items from myWeekly circular directly on my shopping list along with other must-have items I need to buy next time I visit my local CVS/pharmacy. What would be on your list????

Here’s my CVS/pharmacy shopping list:

MommyB’s CVS/pharmacy Care Package Ideas

 

Thanks to CVS/pharmacy for sponsoring this post and my upcoming trip to CVS/pharmacy headquarters, including the iPad mini to help me navigate myWeekly ads. I have been loyal CVS customers since before I was married and well before I started this blog. I am proud to be able to stand behind a brand that has been a big part of my life and my family’s too. The thoughts and opinions in this post are my own honest opinions, yours may vary.

Care Package & Gift Basket Ideas for Moving {Giveaway}

Thank you CVS/pharmacy for donating the gift basket items for the Yon family.

 

Whether you know a family who is moving to a different house, neighborhood, city, state (or maybe even country) or there’s a new family in your neighborhood, it’s always thoughtful to create a care package or gift basket with useful items. Personally, I love shopping at CVS/pharmacy for all kinds of things besides just refilling prescriptions for my family. When I heard a family from my daughter’s school was moving to Africa to become missionaries, I thought to myself, “How can I help in my own personal way.” I decided to approach CVS/pharmacy with a list of items that this family had on their needs list for their trip. CVS/pharmacy quickly gathered items (more than I could fit in the gift basket), for my family to donate on their behalf.

Care Package and Gift Basket Ideas for Moving MommyB

This gave me great ideas for gifting to people who are moving anywhere in the world. Here are some care package and gift basket ideas for different ages and moves using products that can all be purchased at CVS/pharmacy.

College or Back-to-School Care Package

  • CVS/pharmacy carries a long list of Back-to-School supplies from Crayola crayons, to composition notebooks, and more that would be great to add to this care package.
  • Consider adding CVS brand over the counter medicine, {did you know most CVS brand medicines has the same active ingredients as the name brand??}
  • Gold Emblem snacks for late night studying, affordable and yummy too
  • Laundry supplies {unless of course they’re bringing all their “dirties” back home to you}

Moving Gift Basket Care Package MommyB

Overseas Move Care Package (of course this package may vary depending on restrictions of airlines or country law/limits)

  • Sunscreen – we love any of the CVS clear mist versions, it’s easy to apply.
  • Pack some snacks for the recipient to munch on during their flight, Unreal Candy is a healthier alternative, but is still a nice, sweet treat.
  • In some countries multi-vitamins are very hard to find, these are easy to stock up on and send in your care package
  • Send some entertainment, purchase some card games or small board games, featured in CVS/pharmacy’s toy aisle

Hallmark Blooming FlowerFriend Moving Away Care Package

  • Personalize notes for a set timeframe and include inspirational quotes, memories, favorite sayings, or Bible verses
  • Choose a theme for the gift basket like all items one color, that person’s favorite scent, or items that will remind them of your friendship
  • CVS/pharmacy carries a full line of greeting cards and also sells great Hallmark products including the popular blooming flower greetings, perfect for friendship or someone you love
  • Purchase a gift card or two to somewhere you both can visit when you see each other next. This gives you a date to look forward to and not having to worry about where to go or who will pay.

Welcome to the Neighborhood Gift Basket

  • Create a list (with permission) of the names and phone numbers of neighbors in your area to give to your new neighbor so they may reach out or have someone to call in a time of need.
  • Since you may not know food preferences or if there are food allergies, you may want to stay away from food based gifts and stick to household products instead.
  • A CVS/pharmacy gift card is a great addition to this gift basket so the recipient can buy some items they may have left behind or need for their new home.
  •  Grab some standard cleaning products like baking powder, sponges, disinfecting wipes so they have cleaning items handy.

CVS/pharmacy is great for all kinds of needs whether you create a gift card tree or buy a bunch of great items to fill a care package or gift basket to the brim.

 

CVS/pharmacy provided me with one $25 gift certificate for one lucky reader. Enter here to win:

I received products from CVS/pharmacy who I often partner with in order to provide some needs of the Yon Family. My family and I have used CVS products and shopped there well before I began working with the brand because we trust and appreciate their amazing service. All opinions and thoughts in the above post are my own, however yours may vary.

 

CVS/pharmacy presents ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards

So you may remember I had the opportunity to work with CVS/pharmacy and talk about their Pharmacy ExtraBucks Rewards program. If not, check out my video:

Back when the video first aired, there were only a few cities that were eligible to participate in the program, but as of February 1st, CVS/pharmacy opened this program up to the nation. The program has changed a little starting with it’s new name; ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards.

CVS:pharmacy Rewards

Here’s how it works:

  • Enrollment is easy. Shoppers can sign up today online at CVS.com/rxrewards
  • Pharmacy & Health ExtraBucks Rewards can be used like other ExtraBucks Rewards on most items in the store (see image above)
  • Shoppers must opt-in to this program to earn these new rewards, but can keep using their same ExtraCare card
  • Each person who joins can earn up to $50 Pharmacy & Health ExtraBucks Rewards each year
  • When participants receive their rewards, there’s no guesswork involved. Unlike complicated points-based programs where members get paid back in rewards they don’t understand how to use, ExtraCare members receive ExtraBucks Rewards.
  • These rewards are like “free CVS money” they can spend on most items in the store, so it’s super easy to redeem them online, in-store or via smartphone.

So if you like to shop at CVS/pharmacy and fill your prescriptions, why not sign up, there are no fees and no extra hassles. I know my red CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare card has saved me lots, plus I love getting my coupons at the ExtraCare Coupon center.

What do you buy the most from CVS/pharmacy? Prescriptions? Holiday gifts? Personal Care products??

This is not a sponsored post, however I have worked with CVS/pharmacy in the past. My family and enjoy saving money, and I wanted to pass this information down to you. 

Holiday Gift Guide – Unique Stocking Stuffers and Gift Ideas

MommyB Knows Best's Holiday Gift Guide

MommyB Knows Best's Holiday Gift Guide Deck the Halls and break out your lists it’s time for another installment of MommyB Knows Best’s Holiday Gift Guide for the family! In speaking with different families I know that some families provide lists of desired items and others have little to no ideas to go off of. Personally, I like a list for a guideline, but I love purchasing items that I think the gift recipient will be surprised by and love. Here are a few unique stocking stuffer and gift ideas that I wanted to share with you. I hope they can be helpful in your holiday shopping.

big-fish-games-logoThe perfect stocking stuffer for kids or adults, pick up a gift certificate from online casual games company Big Fish.  With most games available for download at only $9.99, Big Fish has something to please every gamer including colorful puzzles and brain teasers, educational games for children, and intriguing mystery and adventure games.

 

Bobbi-ToadsBobbi-Toads, a line of fun and fashionable shoes for young girls, features a faux set of toe nails on a stylish sneaker, allowing young ones to paint the shoes as you would your own nails. When you are ready to switch up your style and change colors, simply use non-toxic nail polish remover to remove the old polish, and repeat the process by polishing with a different color; it’s that easy! https://www.bobbitoads.com/

CVS Phone CasesLooking for a personalized gift that any smart phone or tablet user would love?? CVS/pharmacy photo lab offers several selections and templates to design a fabulous phone case for someone special. Here are my photos, thoughts, and ordering information: CVS/pharmacy smart phone case review.

 

The Little Gym FamilyTired of toys consuming every area of your home?? What about a gift that will give your child hours of enjoyment and learning but just doesn’t fit into a box? We love The Little Gym classes for both our girls, whether they are in ballet, gymnastics, or one of the many active classes The Little Gym offers they are learning skills both physically and socially. We have classes at The Little Gym of Huntersville/Lake Norman but you can also find a Little Gym class near you.

 

CVS Beauty Collage

Stocking stuffers can be the last item on your shopping list and sometimes the most difficult. I love shopping for little trinkets at CVS/pharmacy. When it comes to my stocking stuffer wishes I’d pick the CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare Beauty Club picks. Some of my favorites are Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain, Nuance Salma Hayek Walnut Body Scrub {it’s to die for!!}, and for fun, Katy Perry Lashes Oh My!{choose something modest or get fancy!} to name a few. All of these products are around $7 and under in CVS/pharmacy’s Beauty Club, perfect stocking stuffer price and size.

Our favorite Christmas movie to watch with our girls is Veggie Tale’s St. Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving. We like this movie because it tells about the person St. Nicholas and explains the reasons behind why we give gifts at Christmas time, something we try to teach our girls. You may even want to consider buying this one to watch before Christmas gets here. The lowest price I’ve found the video so far is on Walmart’s Website.

Custom Phone and Tablet Cases by CVS/pharmacy – Discount

CVS Phone Cases

Happy Thursday everyone!! I can’t believe this week is almost over, but before it is, I wanted to write you about CVS/pharmacy’s new custom phone and tablet cases, for two reasons.

1. Because I got a sample and it’s so cool I had to share

2. There’s a discount going on right now, but only for a few more days!

Being one of a million Jennifer’s when I get the chance to personalize things I do. From gifts to other people, my girls room decor, clothing, and almost anything I can “snazz-up”. This holds true for my websites too. I love to market my sites when I can because I’m proud of all the work I’ve done and blessed to be where I am in my career. So, even though it was hard for me to choose between featuring pics of my girls or customize for work, I chose to feature my websites. (** After seeing the results though, I think I may ask for one with my kiddos on it for my birthday, hint hint.)

CVS/pharmacy’s photo lab offers customizing for several different brands including, iPhone, iPad, Kindle, Blackberry, Samsung, and the list goes on.

CVS Phone Cases

Choosing images for this project was the most difficult part of the process, the rest was made super easy with a user friendly, step-by-step online program.

CVS 3 Steps

CVS/pharmacy made it easy for me to choose from different photo layouts, for my iPhone 4 I could choose 1, 2, or 3 photos and also for my specific model I was able to choose between a few different case styles. I love that I could choose the placement of my images, and easily move my uploaded images around.

CVS Case Customize

I chose the iPhone Vibe case since it seemed like the more durable choice. CVS/pharmacy ships your case at no additional cost to the CVS location of your choice, making it easy to pick up during your other CVS/pharmacy related errands. I love the smooth finish, and the quality of the photos on my phone case turned out great. The case fits my phone very well and definitely seems like it will hold up to being shuffled around in my diaper bag. I am very pleased with the results and think this would make a great, personalized gift as well.

Here’s mine (ignore the iPhone flash glare):

MommyBKnowsBest Personalize Phone Case

Cases range in price starting at $34.99, and like I mentioned at the beginning of the post, CVS/pharmacy has a great deal on their website for 25% off. Head over to http://www.cvsphoto.com/phone-and-tablet-cases , add your customized phone or tablet case(s) to your shopping cart and upon check out enter the discount code: CASE25 Please note that this promotion ends 9/8/12 so you only have a couple of days to take advantage of this deal.

One big tip for creating your case would be to make sure you use high res images, the better the quality of the original pictures, the better the quality of your case.

My only wish is that someone would create an even more durable personalized phone case, maybe something made of armor, I’m so nervous my phone will get damaged.

What images would you use for your personalized case?

I received a complimentary phone case from CVS/pharmacy in order to test out the product and give you my honest opinions about the product. Besides, how else can I tell you about it if I don’t experience it myself? Your opinions may vary unless you design your phone exactly like mine to advertise my sites. {Just kidding!!!}

Okay guys, quick post {which is very atypical for me, but I’m getting ready for Type-A tomorrow}. I heard from the PR company that my video that I worked on for the NEW CVS/pharmacy ExtraBucks Rewards Program is live!! You can now see the commercial here through my site:

CVS/Pharmacy’s NEW Website and Rhode Island Trip Report

CVS pharmacy Website

Thank you to those of you who have been super supportive of me working with CVS/pharmacy. I know many of you love what they do as a company as well and I learned so much about them on my trip to Rhode Island this past weekend.

One of the biggest “surprises” of the weekend, {and there were many that I’ll be sharing} was the reveal of CVS/pharmacy’s newly renovated website that went live last Friday. All I can say is, “What an improvement.” If you didn’t see their website before the revamp here is a screenshot in it’s busy glory:

CVS Screenshot

It’s not horrible, but there’s a LOT to look at for sure. Now here’s their new look:

CVS pharmacy Website

It’s definitely more streamlined regarding the way it looks, plus it has some great new features, not to mention that a lot of the pages are available in Spanish too.

The NEW CVS/pharmacy website is personalized to you and your family and greets you with a big, “Welcome to your new pharmacy.” This next step in technology allows us, as users to view deals and coupons specifically under our accounts, link accounts within family members, and gives a unique pharmacy experience.

Just the prescription features alone have blown me away. I can get an SMS Alert (text) when my prescriptions are ready, can manage prescription refills, see how many have been filled and refilled, view detailed descriptions of the medications including images of medicine, interactions, warnings and more. For me, this opens up a whole new world of managing my family’s health.

Here I am giving a very brief recap of my first day learning more about CVS/pharmacy, how seriously they take customer service, quality care, and going above and beyond for us, the consumer.

As I mentioned I had the opportunity of trying some pretty cool products out, which I’ll have a fun review post coming up with details and pictures, including when and how much you can purchase those items for. In the meantime I’m enjoying being a CVS/pharmacy guinea pig.

I can’t wait to share even more #cvssneakpeeks with you all but right now I’m going to announce the winner of the CVS/pharmacy gift card from my post about the New CVS Pharmacy ExtraBucks Rewards Program:

And the winner is:        Tina M!!!!!

Congrats Tina, I’ll be emailing you for your information shortly!

I was not compensated for this post, however I have worked with CVS/pharmacy in the past and have received complimentary products mentioned in my vlog, regardless CVS/pharmacy has been my preferred pharmacy/drugstore long before I was a blogger because of their exceptional customer service. The opinions expressed in the above post are my own, yours may vary.
