CVS is ending the Green Bag Tag program

Sad news: CVS is ending the Green Bag Tag program that gives you Extrabucks rewards when you bring your own bags.

With the Green Bag Tag program, you bring your own bags to have them bag the products you are buying, have them scan your Green Bag Tag card and then get a $1 Extrabucks reward after every 4th scan.

If you already have a bag tag, you'll still be able to use it for a few more months, but the program will be ending this year.

Apparently, the Green Bag Tags are no longer available to purchase at the stores so unless you already have one, you can't take advantage of this program.

I am definitely sad to see this program end. According to my last CVS receipt, I have had my bag tag scanned 250 times since I have had it which equals $62 in Extrabucks Rewards because I bring my own bags.
