Help Sign ExtraCare red or white card: Which is better?

Does anyone know the difference between the white CVS Caremark ExtraCare card and the regular red ExtraCare card?

My husband said a cashier told him to always use the white CVS Caremark ExtraCare card because it's got better deals. I'd like to gain more insight on this. Anyone know more?

So far this is all I can find about it:

"The new CVS Caremark ExtraCare Health card not only functions as an Extra Care card but also gives a 20% discount on any CVS brand health-related (FSA eligible) items at every CVS store nationwide. (FSA items are identified on the bottom of your CVS receipts as being eligible for reimbursement from FSA/HRA/HSA plans)."

Problem is now I have 2 cards and I don't want to juggle EB between 2 diff cards. Makes my head hurt... So is it worth it to make the while one my primary card or not? Does the "magic machine" like it more (LOL) or does it accrue rewards faster or what?

I got something from Aetna that they had formed a partnership with CVS. Maybe this is what the white card is?

I wouldn't worry to much about the extra 20% off of FSA items. Thanks to Obama's Healthcare plan those items will no longer be refundable as a flex spending item unless you have a prescription to get them. Yes that means no more tylenol or any thing like that will be covered after January 1, 2011. So you might want to adjust your flex spending account and reduce it as needed. Gotta love the Government screwing this up.

This is too crazy. I just got my CVS card the other day and I have a red one.

I agree about the government screwing things over!

The white card comes from health care plans. I could be wrong, but I think it might be linked more to the prescription plan you have than the med. benefits. I do have Aetna, but my prescription plan is through CVS Caremark and so is the health benefits etracare card. I do like the 20% savings on CVS items. I especially use that part for vitamins, iron supps. and generic Zyrtec which I can get cheaper with the 20% than with sales and coupons normally.

It is nice to have both cards when a deal is limited to 1 per week per card. I can do 2 of those deals, but juggling which card goes to which ECBs can be a pain. I was told by a cashier that I could call and get them combined into one account, but I am not sure I want to.

As for the machine liking one better than the other, haven't really noticed that. Usually I get the same offers on the CRT machine, or one is different and that is it.
