Have you ever been running errands and feel like you’ve pushed your kids to the brink of a meltdown? I’ve certainly been there! I have a friend who swears by having no more than three in-and-out of the car seat transitions in one outing. I started paying attention with my own children and sure enough that seems to be the threshold of how much my little guys can take before they start getting restless and losing it.
Let’s face it, no matter how necessary it might be, getting them in and out of car seats for errand running just isn’t easy. Even worse is when you get to the destination and then realize it’s been silent for a few minutes. Sure enough they’ve fallen asleep in the backseat at the most inconvenient time!
Thankfully CVS is making it easier than ever for this mama to run errands. With CVS Curbside pickup you can stay in your car and have your items delivered right to your car. Talk about skipping the line, this service lets you save time and energy!
CVS Curbside Pickup – How It Works
First make sure to download the CVS Pharmacy App and set-up your ExtraCare Rewards number and CVS Pay if you haven’t already. You can read more about our experience with the CVS Pharmacy App and all it’s great benefits. Next, using your handy CVS Pharmacy App, select Curbside Pickup in the Shop section. Choose the store that you would like to pickup your order from.
Then select the items that you would like to pickup. With both a beach trip prep and school supplies shopping on my To Do list, I quickly selected all the items I needed from sunscreen to glue sticks. It even includes when an item is on sale so you can stock up!
Once you have everything in your app cart that you need, just select the Check Out button at the bottom of the screen. It will include your ExtraCare Rewards number and CVS Pay making it seamless.You’ll receive a text confirmation of your order as well as a text when it’s ready for pick-up. Once you are in the CVS parking lot, you send a text confirmation back and someone delivers your order right to your car.
How easy is that?!
I’ve had no problem using the app and nothing beats letting my kids stay in the car after a long day. No meltdown on aisle three please! This also works great on rainy days or when someone in the car is sick. Let’s all keep our germs to ourselves, thanks!
