Citi is extending its Shop with Points feature to include CVS locations across the United States. Citi cardmembers with cards that earn ThankYou Rewards can use their points to shop at over 8,300 CVS locations – here’s how:

Citi Adds CVS Locations to Shop with points

Drugstores play an essential role in our communities. In fact, recent data from Citi shows that approximately 4.5 million consumers visit a CVS store each day.

Because pharmacies and drugstores play a vital role in the local community, Citi is teaming with CVS to launch Shop with Points at CVS locations across the United States. Citi ThankYou Point cardmembers can now instantly Shop with Points at more than 8,200 CVS stores nationwide. This new promotion provides Citi customers with seamless access to their ThankYou redemptions while shopping or on the go.

How to Shop with Points at CVS

Eligible cardmembers can redeem points for $10 worth of qualifying purchases at participating CVS stores. Here’s how:

  • Shop at a participating CVS and begin the check-out process
  • Pay with an eligible Citi credit card for a purchase totaling more than $10.01
  • If the payment terminal screen prompts an offer to redeem ThankYou Points, select “yes” to use points to pay for $10 of that purchase. Once selected, $10 will be instantly deducted from the payment amount
  • Receive a receipt that indicates that a reward was redeemed

Eligible ThankYou Point Credit Cards

Not all Citi credit cards earn ThankYou Points. The following Citi and co-brand credit cards earn ThankYou Points:

The CVS ThankYou points promotion also applies to the Citi Prestige Card (no longer open to new applicants).

Citi Continues to Expand Its ThankYou Rewards Program

The launch of the new CVS and ThankYou Points promotion follows closely from the announcement that Citi® Double Cash cardmembers will soon earn ThankYou Points. Cardmembers will earn 1% cash back when buying and 1% back when paying off their purchases in the form of ThankYou Points. Those changes begin on March 28, 2022, with Citi Double Cash cardmembers able to Shop with Points at CVS automatically.

Citi has significantly expanded the redemption options for ThankYou Points over the last few years. These new options range from more than 50,000 hotels and vacation rentals through Wyndham Rewards and Choice Privileges to new charitable redemption options and an expansion of gift card merchants within the ThankYou Gift Card catalog. In addition to redeeming points instantly at CVS, eligible Citi cardmembers can also Shop with Points at Amazon, PayPal, 1-800-Flowers, Best Buy, bp, Amoco, and Shell.
