[Extended] Get $10 Reward When You Made $20+ CVS Purchase With Paypal or Venmo App

Update 5/2/21: Extended through ?

The Offer

Direct Link to offer

  • Paypal is offering a $10 reward when you make a $20+ purchase at CVS using the the Paypal app (QR code).

 

The Fine Print

  • Offer ends 3/31/20
  • Reward must be used by 4/30/21

Our Verdict

Easy enough to buy a $20 gift card at CVS and trigger this $10 credit. Sounds like we’ll get a $10 Paypal credit which can be used on any Paypal purchase before 1/31/21, but I’m not entirely clear.

Post history:

  • Update 4/8/21: Extended until 4/30/21
  • Update 2/14/21: Deal is back and valid until 3/31/21. Hat tip to Trevor
  • Update 12/13/20: Deal has been extended until 12/31/20.
  • Update 11/19/20: Link working again, now excludes prepaid gift cards unfortunately.
  • Update: Same offer is found in the Venmo app under the ‘Rewards’ section, according to reader AA.

Based on the fine print, it looks like:
• You can do this once per PayPal account.
• You must make the CVS purchase by 12/12/20. Then redeem the $10 credit by 1/31/21.
• Personal and Premier PayPal accounts will show the earned $10 credit in the “offers” section of the account. Business PayPal accounts will only show the $10 credit next time you are checking out with PayPal.
• In any case, the $10 credit is supposed to automatically apply next time you buy something with PayPal usIng PayPal checkout.
• While you must scan your QR code at CVS to earn the $10 credit, you can actually redeem the credit via standard PayPal checkout (i.e. PayPal button).

I just set up my PayPal QR code. I should be able to try this out in the next couple of days. Looks like an easy $10. Thanks for the post Doc!

I am thinking that since I never verified my Paypal account by linking a bank account that I won’t be eligible for this offer.

Atexit8, You do NOT need to have a verified bank account. (i.e. a Paypal Cash account) I simply have my Chase Freedom linked to PayPal. Used the app to buy $20 worth of stuff at CVS (not gift cards or Amazon cash reload) and immediately got the $10 Paypal reward. I did not have to activate anything on Paypal or load an offer to my PayPal wallet. Ridiculously easy. Thanks Chuck for letting us know!

To use the mobile app, i need to add mobile phone. I add one and verify it at paypal.com. When I try to validate that same number in the app, it says the number is not supported. Not sure why. Any ideas?

Google voice number/any other VOIP numbers are not accepted, probably.

Chuck I received the $25 off next purchase offer from purchasing $25 Crypto. I paid $20+ in CVS in store using PayPal QR code after activating the CVS offer of get $10 bonus with $20+ purchase. The $10 bonus was instantly posted to my PayPal balance. My PayPal account still shows $4+ left from that Crypto offer that can be used later. Just wanted to share this.

Venmo didn’t work for me. Contacted support and it was absolutely worthless. They kept thinking I was talking about the credit card despite saying it had nothing to do with it.

CVS scanned my PayPal QR code and nothing happened. Was the cashier supposed to do something else? Tried this several times before giving up and using a credit card.

My venmo app crashes every single time I try to use the QR code

So we really don’t need to “activate” this anywhere? it’s a guaranteed $10 cashback on buying a $20 CVS gift card? I have a few PayPal accounts. Has anyone used the same credit card with two PayPal accounts and gotten it both times?

I think you’ll be fine. I did on personal and business paypal account.

If you purchase anything else while at CVS… the Payce app. will give you an extra 5% back. Payce also gives cash back on prescriptions. Don’t forget to activate your offers at the beginning of each month and pay with a card that’s been added to the app… John 3:16

Used it today. Appears it’s been extended again, but not sure how long. The wording on the site makes it unclear when the deal expires.

Ben H this might be useful for me as Venmo didnt work for me last time.
Is this your first time for these offers?

Same here. I tried to buy a physical $25 Home Depot card at self-checkout at CVS, but mine doesn’t allow gift card purchases there apparently. So went over to a cashier, had them scan the Paypal bar code, and the $10 was credited within a few minutes. Was able to transfer the $10 to my bank.

This was my first use.
