Do you think that I could convince my Hubby to make one for me?!

Earn CVS ECBs!

At the beginning of the month, I was asked to be take part in a survey from CVS .  In the survey I had to compare the CVS Ad vs. the Walgreens Ad.  Now that they’ve had time to tally the results and read all the feedback, it seems as though CVS heard the public voice! It is rumored that the 4/15 CVS ad will contain CVS coupons!   I don’t have the details yet as to if they can be stacked, but I can’t wait to find out 🙂

You may wonder how was I invited to take the CVS survey in the first place.   Well, I’ll tell you 🙂  I’m a member of the CVS Advisory Board, and you can be too!  All that you have to do is apply!  It’s worth it.   The survey took maybe 10-15 minutes to complete and I got $10 in ECBs for completing the survey!  Click HERE to apply today.

 Here’s CVS’ description of the “CVS Advisory Board“:

“Throughout the year, we will send you invitations to participate in online surveys about CVS products and services. If you choose to participate in our surveys, we will thank you for your time by providing you with a self-printable CVS ExtraBucks coupon immediately after completing our survey. Becoming a member of ExtraCare and the CVS Advisor Panel is FREE.”
