How do I determine the application of sales tax on my purchase that involves the use of a coupon?
Funded manufacturer’s/mfr’s coupons will generally calculate sales tax on the pre‐coupon price of the item, as required by state
law*. If the coupon is issued by CVS Pharmacy® (ExtraBucks Rewards plus ExtraSavings coupons that includes ExtraCare® Coupon
Center and myWeekly Ad circulars), the coupon is generally deemed a retailer coupon and the sales tax is calculated on the
discounted price of the item (after the coupon is applied), as required by state law. However, some CVS Pharmacy issued
coupons are “funded manufacturer’s coupons” and designated as mfr. on the face of the coupon and also on your receipt. Sales
tax is calculated on CVS Pharmacy issued mfr’s coupons on the pre‐coupon price of the item.
*Sales tax is calculated on the discounted price of the item (after the manufacturer’s coupon is applied) in the following states:
CT, MA, MO, PA, TX
Can the processing order of multiple coupons that are applied to an item affect the calculation of sales tax?
Yes. Although CVS Pharmacy reserves the right to determine the processing order of its retailer coupons issued (including
discounts earned via the ExtraSavings Programs and myWeekly Ad circulars), individual state tax laws govern the processing
order of retailer coupons vs. funded manufacturer’s coupons.
Am I limited by how many items I can buy?
There is no set limit however, store managers do reserve the right to set discretionary limits on specific items being purchased in
order to ensure there are enough of those items for other customers.
How am I able to use percent‐off coupons?
Percent‐off coupons may be used on non‐promotional/non‐sale items. Exclusions are displayed on each of the coupons.
How do I use digital ExtraCare coupons or ExtraCare coupons that have been sent to my card?
You are able to send available deals and coupons to your ExtraCare card from CVS.com® , the CVS Pharmacy mobile app, digital
receipts and CVS Pharmacy email. Click on the Send‐to‐Card® icon and view the success indicator on the landing page to ensure
it was loaded properly. To use it, purchase the necessary items the coupon is valid for and ensure your ExtraCare card is
