You may remember that I mentioned just a few short months ago that CVS Pharmacy is now, and finally here in Colorado. Although there aren’t any stand-alone stores near me, I’m however able to access their services through their in-store locations at Target. CVS has always been one of my favorite pharmacies and when I lived in New York City, I would do most of my pharmaceutical shopping there, along with a few extra since they did more than prescriptions. However, today, I want to share with you the reason I just love CVS Pharmacy, it’s all about their innovative digital tool, and why you should consider making them your go-to pharmacy as well.
There’s an app for that! The CVS Pharmacy App. In a world where we’re ruled by technology and we want everything at our fingertips, CVS rose to the challenge. Now you can save time, stay healthy and even spend less with the CVS Pharmacy app.
I have to admit, I love shopping but I also love a good deal as much as the next person, and with a household of 5, I want to be able to save money. With the CVS Pharmacy app, I am able to do that since there are app-only deals that you won’t find anywhere else, and you can access all of your offers right there on the app. Be sure to link your ExtraCare® card, however.
I have medications that are prescribed to me by my doctor that I need to have refilled. The app makes refilling and picking up my prescription a whole lot easier as well. I can view my prescription history, and order my refills all right there in the comfort of my bed. All I need is to turn my phone on and get on the app. If my prescriptions have a barcode, I can even scan the barcode on my prescription using my phone’s camera on the app making the pickup process so much easier. I even set up a text alert so when my prescription is ready I can get on my way to pick them up. Now no need to wait in the pharmacy for any length of time before pick up. Although I really don’t mind waiting in Target.
However, did you know that you can even check the drug interactions right there on the app as well? How cool is that! Now you can check to see whether a prescription that you will be taking will have an adverse reaction to either another drug you’re taking or even the foods that you are eating. Now, this is a great way to make sure that you’re taking your prescriptions the way they were intended to be taken, safely!
The app has also made family health care a whole lot easier as well. Now you can find your closest MinuteClinic walk-in click, check to see what type of services are provided and you can even check to see if your insurance is accepted before heading there. You can also view the wait times and even hold your place in line. This is great for those last-minute flu-shots that you’re going to need this winter.
The CVS Pharmacy App is a lifesaver and makes prescription shopping so much easier. This is great for the elderly, or even people like me who hate waiting and being in lines. If you’re not getting your prescriptions at CVS Pharmacy currently, what are you waiting for? Download their app and start saving today!
The app is currently available in both the Android and Apple Store.
