Here's the breakdown of my latest shopping spree at CVS! Because I downloaded the CVS app and linked my card, I got $3.00 ExtraBucks (EB), plus I had $4.50 quarterly EB and $3.00 EB from a previous shopping trip.
This is a lesson on how using your EB on products for even more EB gets you the biggest bang for your buck.
