Healthy Grab and Go Snacks from CVS!
As much as I try to plan out my shopping list, the truth is that I occasionally need to just “stop in” and grab something. Whether it’s toothpaste, sandwich bags, something for one of the boy’s school projects, or the occasional grocery item, if I need to get it quickly, CVS is the place to go.
For me, being able to run errands quickly is essential, especially if the errands aren’t well planned. Maybe that means I’m scheduled too tightly, but I’m okay with that!
Part of my affection for CVS is being able to use my ExtraCare™ card for rewards and offers! Unlike a lot of loyalty programs, ExtraCare really focuses on offers that are perfect for me and my family. How is CVS so smart?
Through the CVS Pharmacy ExtraCare program, I can save and earn rewards on almost everything I purchase from CVS. As a member, I receive personalized coupons, weekly circular deals, and automatic discounts when I use my card or app on my phone. I also earn rewards (ExtraBucks) that can be used on nearly anything in the store. Basically, I get rewarded for shopping. I can’t complain about that!
More recently, I’ve been really impressed with the healthy food options that CVS has to offer, too. More often than not, when I stop by I have one of the kids with me, so I like to grab a snack with my purchase. It’s refreshing that there are plenty of healthy options to choose from.
At CVS, a good chunk of the front counter space, where most stores display candy bars, is now dedicated to healthy snacks like Kind Bars and Larabars (one of my personal favs).
This makes it easy for me to run in, get whatever it is I need to pick up (like school supplies or prescriptions), and grab a quick snack for myself and the kids without guilt or hassle.
CVS also recently expanded their refrigerator and non-perishable food, so I can also pick up dinner essentials, including brands like Amy’s and Annie’s Homegrown. They also feature healthy deals of the week and personalized email offers that help remind me that it’s not always a choice between affordable and healthy.
In fact, my CVS “myWeekly Ad” has offered some healthy option deals this week, too!
Here’s a quick look at some of the healthy essentials I got last time I just stopped in to CVS.
Once again, CVS has proved to be my go-to one stop shop for all of my family needs!
