Woonsocket, R.I. -- CVS/pharmacy said Tuesday it has introduced an updated mobile app that allows shoppers to digitally store their ExtraCare card in their smartphone, eliminating the need to carry an ExtraCare card when shopping.
The CVS mobile app now allows members to scan the barcode on the back of their card or type in their account number manually. After the barcode is captured, customers' smartphones will work just like ExtraCare cards at the register.
Available as a free download from Apple's App Store or through Google Play, the CVS app also offers prescription management, mobile shopping, store locating services and access to the CVS/pharmacy weekly circular.
"During the past few months, we've significantly expanded the mobile options available to our digitally-minded customers with the goal of creating the most personalized and accessible shopping experience," said Rob Price, senior VP marketing and chief marketing officer for CVS/pharmacy.
