CVS Pharmacy will give millions of its customers the option to receive their receipts via email, instead of paper copies.
Starting in early June, CVS will launch digital receipts as a new option for all members of its ExtraCare Rewards program. The ExtraCare Rewards program has about 70 million members, the company said in a news release.
The move was first unveiled on Friday evening on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” in a surprise appearance featuring CVS Pharmacy president Helena Foulkes. Digital receipts will eventually be available in 7,900 CVS retail locations.
ExtraCare Rewards members will be able to opt-out of receiving paper receipts for all in-store purchases when completing their transactions. If customers are not already rewards members, they can enroll in the program by providing a valid email address, the company said.
Once the one-time process is completed, customers will receive receipts digitally, along with their coupons and rewards that can be redeemed in store by using a smartphone, tablet or computer. Customers will also be able to request a paper copy of their receipt during any transaction, the company said.
