You may be familiar with the gist of a CVS raincheck, but do you actually know when or how to use one? If not, let’s go over some basics about them to avoid any future misunderstandings.
Say you found some really great deals in one of CVS’ regular sales ads. You want to get to the store as fast as you can but you’re so busy you have no free time for the next week. The sale doesn’t end for two weeks so you have plenty of time, but you’re also worried other people will get in there and buy the item before you have a chance. Finally, you get through your hard work week and head over to CVS to get that perfect item… and oh no! Your worst fears have come true. The item is out of stock due to the popularity of the sale. At most places, you’d then hang your head in defeat and leave. Fortunately, CVS gives you a much better alternative.
If you head to the nearest cashier, they can provide you with a red and white raincheck. What this piece of paper does is guarantees you the sale price as soon as the item is in stock, even if that isn’t until the sale is over with. This raincheck doesn’t expire either. If you’re busy for a full month after you receive the raincheck, you’ll be fine. As soon as you get some free time, you can head to the nearest CVS and redeem it. If you happen to be out of town, you can also redeem it at any other CVS. Talk about a lifesaver!
