I like to save time when shopping, especially during the holidays.
Christmas is just a few days away and I know you’ve been spending all your time thinking about and taking care of everyone else. So this one is just for you.
A few weeks back I visited the CVS/pharmacy headquarters to learn about some of the new ways they are helping us to be more efficient with our shopping while saving both time and money. Here are a few things I learned:
Download the CVS/pharmacy app to your smartphone or your iPad. I love the iPad app, it is very easy to use and I can access my weekly ad (see below for details on this, love it!), my Extrabucks account, order or refill a prescription, or find a store or MinuteClinic close to me. The app has a very cool virtual store where, with just the tap of your fingers, you can access what you need. Download the CVS/pharmacy iPad app here and the CVS/pharmacy mobile app for android or iphone here.
My weekly ad
You may be getting the print ad with weekly specials in your newspaper, but did you know you can get it online and have it personalized just for you? Check out this video to find out how to get the “my weekly ad” feature on your computer, tablet or mobile phone. The My weekly ad feature is great because it displays products that you buy most often first. When you add your favorite store and create your shopping list, your personalized ad will even show you the aisle your product is in at your favorite store! Amazing and wonderful isn’t it?
Holiday Shopping, too
While I was visiting the headquarters, we had a great holiday event, and I was surprised to see so many great gift ideas at CVS for the holiday season. Everything from toys for kids to beauty products for your friends. So consider stopping by to pick up any last minute gifts. And remember all Christmas items will be 50% off regular retail during the Christmas clearance sale on December 26.
Check out this video, filmed during the event (I am in it!) And keep reading because I have a very cool giveaway just for you.
There have been some spectacular wardrobe malfunctions in pop culture, but we can have some, too, can’t we? Even if they aren’t quite as revealing, or quite at risk of being seen by millions in one fell swoop.
One of those things I was surprised to find at CVS/pharmacy is the Hollywood fashion secrets line. If you haven’t heard of it, let me tell you, it is like an emergency fashion kit! It includes products like fashion tape to keep your outfits in place (repair hems instantly, hold collars down, adjust pant length and more), boot straps to keep your pants tucked into your boots, a deodorant removing sponge for those white deodorant marks that sometimes strike your blouse at the wrong time, bra covering tip to hide bra straps or keep straps from slipping, and more.
And today, thanks to CVS/pharmacy we are giving away one package of assorted products from the Hollywood Fashion secrets line!
