Do You Never Receive CVS Snail Mailings?

We have discussed before about the apparent randomness of which CVS shoppers get emails, snail mail and great $/$$ scanner coupons. A Simply CVS reader, Melissa, who follows us on Facebook left the following comment there about the CVS Holiday book that may help you if you are not receiving snail mail from them: "I never got one and I couldn't figure out why. I called the 800 number and
they told me that even though I wrote down all of my info when I applied for my card that corporate doesn't always enter it in when they process the paperwork. So if you don't get mailings you can call the 800 number and ask to have your card registered with your address."

This will not necessarily guarantee you will receive snail mail, but you are guaranteed to not receive any if your info is not entered. You can also go to CVS.com and register your information there if you like. Thanks, Melissa, for sharing this with us.

I am already registered and I hardly ever get CVS emails or any good coupons from the machine. I'm signed up for the Advisory Panel and have only received 2 surveys from that.

Cheryl said...

Exactly the same with me, CJ. I think I have gotten 2 surveys and I never get emails or great scanner qs.

I'm not bragging but my daughter and I both got 4/20 today. I wish you would get something since you do so much to promote their sales.
I just wanted to ask you a couple things that I've been wondering about. On some of your posts I can't find a place to leave a comment. Do you turn the comments off or can I just not see it? It's on the short posts that don't say "read the whole post". Also you referred to Amit as "she". I've also seen him/her referred to as "he" and I'm just curious. lol

Glad to hear of your success with $/$$ coupons, Dot. I so would like to get some. No, I don't turn off the comments. There is something wrong with my template and I can't get them to show on the home page. If you click on the title of the post there should be a comment place below it on its own page that clicking on it takes you to. sorry for the inconvenience. I appreciate the feedback in comments.

Oh, and LOL about Amit, I'll have to look over the site more and see what I can discover. I apologize to Amit if I have erred in this and would love to know.

I never get the e-mail Qs, but I did get the baby mailer last month. I asked my store manager and she said it's connected to what sorts of things you buy. Still didn't make sense to me though, as others who buy baby products didn't get it. I didn't get the holiday catalog either, but was able to ask for it at the register. I guess it's a little like the mystery of Target mailers :-)

Cheryl said...

I think everyone we ask, Cricket, has a different answer. It would be interesting if us CVSers could figure it out together. It is disappointing at times. I still haven't gotten the catalog--hopefully I remember to ask today, but someone commented yesterday the $4 coupon expired 11/30.

Taika Maris said...

I wish I knew the answer to this puzzling question. I work there and don't know. I got a coupon for Tums recently, but that's about it.

FYI - The coupon in the catalog did in fact expire. We were instructed to pull it from all the catalogs and throw them out. I'm not sure if the instructions were only given to the this area or company wide instructions. In any case the EB will not print if you scan it. (We tried.)

Cheryl said...

That seems strange, Taika, to have the coupon expire so early in a Christmas catalog. I finally asked at my store and she said they never got them in. CVS is determined I will never have $/$$'s or great coupons :-).

Julie said...

I saw the Christmas catalog for the first time last week and was excited to see a coupon in it. Then I got home and saw it was expired. DARN! :(

Cheryl said...

I don't understand, Julie, why they had it expire so early. I never did get one--our store never got them in.
