Cvs Can you use someone else's ECBs??

Was just at CVS and someone left a $2 ECB and a $4/$20 coupon on a shelf! I scooped it up, but can I use it or is it tied to only their Extra Care card? I would HATE for that to go to waste!!! That seems like a crime.

ECBs are tied to the ExtraCare Card that they were issued. They will beep if you try to use them with your card (well, 99% of the time but that's another discussion...).

edited to add: The $/$$ coupons (13 digits) are now also issued to specific card accounts. Those will more than likely beep if you attempt to use it on any account other than the one where the coupon was issued.

you have to use ecb with the card that they were recieved from, they are indeed tied together. My mom had borrowed my brothers while in the store a while back and now she needs to borrow his card again just to redeem the ecb!

It is only tied to their card.

That happened to me before so I tried to use it () and the cashier accused me of having more than 1 card. People are so dumb to be tossing out ecbs like they're trash!!!!

Since most places also have your card tied to your phone #, could your mom just give your brother's phone # as her card info?

I asked a cashier at my store this question and she said they can override it so you can use them. The reason I'd aked was because I'd had to use my sisters card once and wanted my ECB's from it. There was also a manager standing right there when she was telling me this so I think it's YMMV.

You are very lucky! That being said, others should not expect this to be the norm. It is against CVS policy and cashiers and managers can be written up/fired for this.
