CVS/pharmacy enhances mobile features for greater convenience

Shoppers can manage their ExtraCare Rewards accounts, prescriptions and other features

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS/pharmacy Friday announced enhanced shopping and prescription refill functionality for its mobile site, located at, as well as iPhone and Android apps, enabling shoppers to use mobile devices to manage their ExtraCare Rewards accounts, scan and send prescription refills, and order photo prints from CVS Photo Centers.

Customers accessing CVS/pharmacy's mobile website can now take advantage of several features of the ExtraCare Rewards Program. This new functionality lets shoppers:

  • Load select ExtraCare coupons received via email directly to their ExtraCare card through the "Send to Card" digital savings option;

  • View the available balance of ExtraBucks Rewards;

  • Check ExtraCare transaction history; and

  • Order a new ExtraCare Rewards card to replace a missing or lost card.

In addition, CVS/pharmacy launched a set of mCommerce options for shoppers using photo services. Customers using smartphones can now:

  • View photo albums and slideshows;

  • Order prints for in-store pickup in about an hour;

  • Share photos with friends and family.

For customers who have downloaded CVS/pharmacy's iPhone or Android app, CVS/pharmacy is making it easier to manage prescriptions. Customers with the iPhone or Android app can now use their smartphones to scan and send rapid refills (no sign-in required) to their local CVS/pharmacy for up to six prescriptions at once, just by using the camera in their mobile devices and the CVS/pharmacy app. These refills can be sent by scanning the prescription label directly. The apps also include a quick-response code scanner that customers can use for scanning any QR code at CVS/pharmacy stores or any other retailer.

Beyond the prescription refill functionality, the same ExtraCare Rewards Program management now available through the CVS/pharmacy mobile site has been added to the CVS/pharmacy iPhone and Android apps.

These features are in addition to the already launched features that allow shoppers to spot nearby CVS/pharmacy stores by using their phone's GPS, check their weekly circular and find MinuteClinic locations and services.
