CVS FAQs

Does CVS price match?

No, CVS does not price match. They won’t price match competitors, and physical stores will not price match CVS.com pricing.

Does CVS deliver?

Yes, there is a CVS delivery service through Instacart.

How do I print photos at CVS?

CVS photo printing is easy. You just upload your images on the CVS website, place your order and pick them up later that same day.

Also, CVS still offers film processing and digital conversion of old family movies on VHS. Just bring your materials into the store and the CVS associate will help you.

What is CVS CarePass?

CVS CarePass is a paid loyalty program that costs $5/month. But here’s the thing: You get a $10 CVS coupon every month. So if you’re a regular CVS shopper, this program is going to save you money despite the initial investment.

Does CVS have curbside pickup?

You would think a pharmacy would offer curbside pickup during a pandemic. But, nope. There used to be a CVS curbside pickup option, but it’s been out of the picture for years. 

If you can’t go into the pharmacy for health reasons, call ahead and see if the store associate is willing to pick up your items for you and have the pharmacist check you out at the drive-thru window. Or, you can use a pharmacy like Walgreens, which allows you to place curbside orders.

Does CVS do returns?

Yes, the CVS return policy gives you 60 days to return most items. There’s extra leniency around CVS brand items and makeup products: You can return these items even if they’re opened! 

Whether or not you can return specific prescriptions depends entirely on the medication and where you live. You can call 1-888-607-4CVS or your local store to check the policy for your specific prescription.

What is the CVS loyalty program?

CVS’ loyalty program is CVS ExtraCare. Once you’re enrolled in ExtraCare, you’ll be able to earn ExtraBucks on select purchases. ExtraBucks are like cash you can only spend at CVS.
