CVS launches new discount program for veterans
March 25th, 2014
WOONSOCKET, R.I. – CVS/pharmacy has rolled out a new 20% discount program, which can be applied both in-store and online, for Veterans Advantage Inc.'s VetRewards Card members.
CVS said Tuesday that the program enables U.S. active-duty military, veterans, National Guard & Reserve and their families to save 20% off purchases at any of its 7,600 drug stores nationwide as well as on CVS.com. They also receive free shipping for online orders.
"CVS/pharmacy is proud to honor military and veteran families with this new benefit for Veterans Advantage members, allowing them to access significant savings whether they shop with us in our stores or on CVS.com," Rob Price, chief marketing officer for CVS/pharmacy, said in a statement. "This program demonstrates our continued commitment to those who have given so much in service to our country."
To access the savings, Veterans Advantage members login at VeteransAdvantage.com with their VetRewards Card ID number and print the CVS savings coupon or link to the private CVS online store.
Veterans Advantage, founded in 1999 by a group of decorated U.S. military veterans, issues the VetRewards Card, a universal military ID card that protects veterans privacy and partners with leading companies that thank veterans with discounts verified with the VetRewards Card.
"We are delighted that CVS has significantly expanded their discount benefit with us as a way to thank service members, veterans and their families," stated Scott Higgins, co-founder and chief executive officer of Veterans Advantage and a Vietnam War veteran. "Leading companies like CVS should be heralded for their steadfast commitment to making the lives of those who sacrifice and put themselves in harm's way to protect our country a little bit happier and easier with a financial break on their everyday purchases."
