When our doctor prescribes more than one medication, we expect to find them all at the same pharmacy. CVS is a good option to avoid going to many stores to buy medicines and get cash.
We may have bought something that wasn’t what we needed, and we need cash back. Or maybe we want to save the additional cost and time of making a withdrawal at an ATM.
Does CVS work for cash?
Cashback will depend on your payment method. CVS will refund you if you cancel your purchase with a Discover debit or credit card. The card has a feature that allows customers to receive refunds.
When you use the Discover credit card, you will see a message asking if you want a cash refund. This card has a $120 cash limit per day, but CVS has a $35 limit per transaction.
On the other hand, if you cancel your purchase with a different credit card or by check, Apple Pay, or gift card, you will not be able to get a refund.
Like many other stores, CVS does not allow customers to cash checks to avoid the risk of fraud. Also, the transaction time on checks is much longer.
Will I get a full refund for my purchase?
No. Whether your purchase was over $35, CVS will only refund $35 per transaction. However, one of the advantages of the refund is that they allow you to choose any denomination of bills you need.
On the other hand, if you want more than $35 cash back, you can purchase different items separately to get your desired amount. The minimum is $35 per transaction, not per day.
When using Discover, you should know the limit to make four transactions until you reach $120.
How do I get my CVS refund if I paid by card?
You can tell the cashier you want a refund or choose the refund option on the card reader.
When selecting your products, go to the cashier and swipe your card. If there is a cashier, you will be asked if you want a refund, and if there is only a card reader, you will see the option.
- Answer that you want a refund
- You will need to add the refund amount to your purchase
- Confirm that the total amount of your refund is correct
- After confirming the transaction, you will be given the cash and the invoice showing your purchase and the refund
- If you asked for the cash and want lower denomination bills, you can tell the cashier, and if available, they will exchange them for you
It is important to note that the purchase and the refund will be charged as a single transaction, so the refund will not appear separately on your bank statement.
Do I have to spend a minimum amount on products to get a refund?
The answer is no. CVS does not have a minimum refund amount; the only requirement is to buy something. It can even be a product that costs $0.01.
CVS offers this kind of cashback to save their customers the additional costs of ATMs. In addition, there are more than 9000 CVS branches, so you are more likely to find one of their locations than an ATM and save time.
