Gift Cards Commonly Sold at CVS

We contacted CVS Pharmacy customer service to see if there was a comprehensive list of all of the companies that they carry gift cards for, but the customer service representative said gift card selection varies from one location to the next. To build a list of the gift cards commonly available at CVS, we contacted CVS stores in several states across the U.S. and visited a CVS store.

The corporate representative we spoke with pointed out that nearly all CVS stores have a large selection of gift cards. She advised that customers with a particular gift card in mind should call ahead to their local CVS store to confirm that the gift card is in stock before making the trip.

CVS ExtraCare Rewards (Members Sometimes Get Discounts on Gift Cards)

CVS has a rewards program that provides participants with lots of coupons. Each purchase also adds up and becomes either Extra Bucks or Beauty Bucks. Extra Bucks can be used throughout the store, and Beauty Bucks can be used on beauty-related items.

During our visit to a local CVS, the Netspend Visa Prepaid Card had a special offer to receive $5 ExtraBucks if you purchased it. If you’re going to buy gift cards or prepaid cards at CVS regularly, it’s worth joining its rewards program. It should be noted that CVS also offers discounts for bulk gift card orders in excess of $500.

Gift Cards Not Commonly Sold at CVS

While CVS does have a wide variety of gift card options, a few popular gift cards were missing at the CVS locations we contacted. The most notable were:

That doesn’t mean that all CVS stores do not carry gift cards to the above retailers. Call ahead to your local CVS to confirm whether it carries the gift card you desire. You also won’t find any gift cards to CVS competitors like Walgreens or Rite Aid; you’ll have to visit their stores if you’re looking for those gift cards.

If what you need isn’t at CVS and you want to find other stores that sell gift cards, note that many supermarkets, department stores, convenience stores, and even home improvement stores carry them.
