CVS Pharmacy 2015 Black Friday deals

In 2015, CVS Pharmacy hosted a three-day holiday shopping sale starting on Thanksgiving Day and ending Saturday. While you won’t find the typical Black Friday doorbuster items at CVS, the drugstore offered a few good deals on small groceries, holiday decorations and gift boxes.

Shoppers needed the CVS ExtraCare Card to claim any of these sales (and if you don’t have one yet this year, it’s easy to sign up online, in-store or on the CVS app).

Here are some of the best deals from the three-day sale:

  • Buy two, get the third free on assorted cosmetics from L’Oreal, CoverGirl and Neutrogena.
  • 2-liter bottles of Pepsi products for 79 cents each.
  • Two for $20 designer fragrances from Armani and more.
  • 40% off Norelco shavers and Sonicare rechargeable toothbrushes.  
  • Buy one, get one free on Hallmark holiday ornaments, including designs from “Frozen” and “Spider-Man.”

The CVS Black Friday ad offered a 25%-off three-day shopping pass, which was good throughout Black Friday weekend but had several restrictions: The pass had to be used with the ExtraCare Card and could be applied only to a few select items.

CVS store hours vary by location, so this year, be sure to check with your local store for Black Friday hours before you venture out.

If you like shopping at CVS, you’ll definitely want to check out the Black Friday deals at these similar stores: Walgreens, Rite Aid and Ulta.
