WOONSOCKET – CVS Caremark Corp.’s CVS/pharmacy announced a new in-store savings program for veterans on Wednesday, with Veterans Advantage’s VetRewards Card members earning up to 20 percent off of CVS/pharmacy brand products.

U.S. active duty military, veterans, National Guard and Reserve and their families using the VetRewards Card can save $2 off every $10 purchase of CVS/pharmacy brand merchandise, according to the CVS release.

To take advantage of the offer, members must be verified at VeteransAdvantage.com for access to a special downloadable coupon good every day at CVS, which added that the coupon offer complements an existing 10 percent online-only discount for purchases made on CVS.com for Veterans Advantage members. That program was launched in 2012.

“This new benefit for Veterans Advantage members demonstrates our continued commitment to those who have given so much in service to our country,” George Coleman, vice president of merchandising and store brands at CVS/pharmacy, said in prepared remarks.

“We are proud and honored to support the Veterans Advantage mission of respect, recognition and rewards for veterans and military families,” added Coleman. “With the launch of this every day in-store discount, VetRewards Card members now have two significant ways to save and shop with CVS/pharmacy."

H. Scott Higgins, the founder and CEO of Veterans Advantage, called the CVS deal an “exciting new benefit” for members.

All CVS/pharmacy brand products – ranging from over-the-counter pharmacy items such as stomach and allergy relief to a wide range of home goods and CVS’s Gold Emblem collection – are included in the discount.
