It’s a great time to be a CVS shopper!

For a limited time, Venmo is offering $10 cash back on your first purchase of $20 or more at CVS when you use the Venmo Pay QR code as your payment method. Note this offer can only be used in-store, as you have to scan the QR code in your Venmo app to pay for your order.

You can also stack this offer with other sales and coupons to maximize your savings, but your final total will need to be at least $20 in order to get this $20 discount.

To find this offer, open your Venmo app and click on the icon in the top right-hand corner that looks like dashed lines. Then click the present icon where it says “Offers” which should bring you to the CVS offer first or you may scroll over to view all the offers. Note to make things easier, you will want to link the payment source to the QR code before heading to checkout.

    Hi, I’m seeing $10 off of $20. Is that correct?

    • Liza (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there, Lana! You’ll get $20 off $20 when you scan this QR code and pay with PayPal or Venmo at checkout. Then you’ll ALSO get $10 back with this second offer listed at the bottom of the post. Hope that helps!

  2. missessk

    If we scored the offer, is it first 500,000 used or saved? Thanks for a great deal!!

    • Sandy

      It is the first 50,000 USED. This promo says it has been going since 06/07/2021, so chances are they have already reached the number of uses.

      • glammy

        So happy I checked the comments before I went to CVS. Since this offer started 3 months ago on 6/7/21 I’m not going to waste my time in going to CVS only to find out that I do t get $20 off a $20 purchase.

        • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

          Hi, glammy! Readers have still been getting this today. We have lots of confirmations.

        • Jessica Briggs

          Did this deal today! Yay!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      It says “limit on per account” so you can only do it once.

    • Jeff

      It’s telling I’m not eligible for the offer 🙄

  3. Cindy

    Does that mean the $20 comes off at check out or you pay the full price and then $20 is credited to your Venmo account?

    • Gege1804

      Yes, I’m curious as well it shows that I saved it but when I pull up the QR code I see my bank info and not cvs

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      The $20 is supposed to come off at checkout, Cindy!

      • Margaux

        $20 did not come off my total, I left CVS 5 minutes ago :

        • Margaux Luen

          Check your email, my PayPal receipt is showing a total of $3.20 so the $20 was deducted AFTER my purchase and not at the register 🙂

  4. Kelly

    If I have already done the $10 cash back for a purchase at CVS through Venmo, can I do the $20 offer through PayPal? Or is it for the first purchase on either PayPal or Venmo?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      It says that there is a limit of one per account for this offer. If you have already done the offer with Venmo, you won’t get it using Paypal.

  5. Linda

    I just did this deal. I got three bottles of Persil at $5.99 each and two 23.7 ounce bottles of Head and Shoulders, which was on sale for buy one get 40% off the second. I had a coupon for $3 off two bottles on the shampoo and another coupon for $6 off of $30. My total came to $26.60 with tax. $6.60 was taken out of my PayPal account (26.60-20.00), and another $10 was added to my PayPal account. Then I got $10 ExtraBucks for purchasing $30 of select products. So I got 3 Persils and 2 Head and Shoulders and made $14.

    • Gege1804

      Hello curious if you used uPayPal did your QR code show your banking info?

      • Linda

        It showed the bank name and the last 4 digits of the account no.

        • Gege1804

          Thank you 😊

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Nice deal, Linda! I love how you shop!!! Thank you for sharing!

  6. Linda

    Just got two packs of Persil pods and a 6 pack of Charmin Mega rolls for $18.86 after $20 off! Thank you!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You are welcome, Linda!!!

  7. MsAnnie

    Hello, can someone tell me how to scan the QR code. Thank you

    • Tonya S

      I couldn’t get the scanning to work either.

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        I was able to get it by bringing it up on a desktop computer and scanning with my phone.

    • Misty

      I took a screenshot of it and then opened my venmo app. From there I clicked on scan to pay which brought up the camera and I then chose it from my photos. Ill see tomorrow if I get the deal. Hope that makes sense. I noticed H2S also put the instructions in the post in case you need to refer to it.

  8. Claudia

    My head is spinning with these steps. Am I the only one still lost lol. Doesn’t help I’m not familiar paying either apps I’m stores (except target).

    • glammy

      No you are not alone in trying to figure out this CVS offer. I finally figured it out but then I read the comments and found out this $20 offer has been available for 3 months since June 6th so I decided not to waste my time going to CVS only to find out the offer isn’t available.

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        Readers have still been getting this offer. It’s still valid.

  9. Cyndi Wildfong

    Can you use the Venmo code on line?

    • ana

      I did not see that option either. This is a little confusing.

  10. Zeel

    If I am understanding correctly, we need to scan 2 different QR Code at checkout? One that is https://imgur.com/vbwM9aL and second one that is in our paypal/venmo app?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Scan the $20 code now and save it to your account. Then when you checkout, just use Paypal or Venmo to pay and they will use it. You’ll only scan once when you pay.

  11. willowcat

    I won’t be able to do this until tomorrow morning – If anyone notices that the offer is no longer available in store, could you post it? Thanks so much in advance.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      If you have added it to your account, you should still see it. It looks like it’s not available to anyone who hasn’t added it, yet. You can check your account in the morning to see if the offer is still there.

    • MrsG

      I was able to save the offer last night and redeem the offer at CVS today. HTH!

  12. haowan

    I’ve added the code to my PayPal, went to cvs, used one coupon (not sure whether because of this?) and total was 22 something. it did not work for me. So I paid the price, But I got the 10 back in my PayPal. On the way home, I saw some people here were saying they got it an hr ago.

    • haowan

      Omg, PayPal was showing the charge of 22 before , now it’s showing 2 … so it’s still working !

      • P W

        Same experience as you. It looks like you are being charged the full amount but PayPal sends a receipt with the coupon deducted. It is still working. Thank you!

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        Yay! I’m so happy this worked for you, haowan!

  13. Zeel

    Do you have to scan 2 barcodes at checkout ? or is it just one ?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Just one code to scan at checkout!

  14. Jennifer Lopez

    Just made my CVS purchase online. Checked out with PayPal as instructed. It does not show a $20 off. 🤷‍♀️ Hoping when the order actually completes that it will take the $20 off??? So lost. Hope I didn’t just blow $20 I didn’t really need fo spend. Ugh.

    • kerRI

      It says only offered on in store purchases 😕

      • Jennifer Lopez

        Ugh. On PayPal it gave instructions to redeem online. So frustrating.

        • kerRI

          I just saw that too…now im wondering

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        Hi kerRI,
        The $20 offer does show you CAN use it online. The $10 off at the bottom of the post is for in-store purchases only.

        • MsAnnie

          Hi, does it matter if you are paying with cash or your credit card on file for PayPal

          • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

            No, it shouldn’t matter. PayPal will use whatever you tell them to use.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Did you save your offer to your account first?

      • Jennifer Lopez

        Yes I did. Looks like they charged me the full amount. 😢

        • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

          Hi, Jennifer Lopez! Go back into your PayPal account to recent activity. Click on the latest transaction to see the details. It will show the full amount, but you should see in the purchase details “special offer” where they deducted the $20.

  15. Joanne

    I just came home from CVS and the offer worked for me. I spent $22, and two dollars was deducted from my pay pal account. In addition $10 was added to my PayPal account. What a great deal. Thank you

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Nice! So glad to hear it, Joanne!

  16. Sulola

    The maximum have already been given out.

  17. Lika

    Thank you!! It just worked for me.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You are welcome, Lika!

  18. Han

    When I scanned the QR code and tried to save it in my account, I got this message: “We’re sorry, the maximum number of offers for this promotion has been reached. Thank you for using PayPal for your shopping deals”. I think the promo is over for $20/$20 off.

    • AMumola

      You might have saved it once in your PayPal wallet so it’s not letting you save double coupons.

    • DealGetterRN

      Same here 🙁

  19. melwagner6

    I keep getting it looks like you are not eligible for this offer

    • angelynsmith

      Same here :/

    • Laura

      Same. Anyone have any idea why ineligible?

  20. Sarah

    I think I added the promo successfully to my Venmo app, but I can’t find the “offers” section in the app to verify that it is there. Does anyone know how to navigate to the saved offers?

    • MrsG

      Go to profile (person icon), settings (gear icon), scroll down about halfway for offers. HTH!

  21. AMumola

    PayPal code offer still working for in store $20 of $20 and then an additional $10 credit 🙂 Thank you Hip 2 Save!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You are welcome!

  22. Pinckney4

    Thank you! Got the $20 off plus the $10 credit around 7:15 pm. My PayPal app shows this, but CVS couldn’t get it to show on their end. The manager gave me a receipt that shows I paid the entire amount in cash & said she would figure it out later because there was a long line waiting to check out. Hope that doesn’t void out my PayPal & I lose the credit! With my luck, that will probably happen!

  23. DealGetterRN

    Maximum number of offers for promotion have been reached

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for the heads up!

  24. Jennifer

    I got an email about the $20 but the way its worded I have to make a purchase which I did and the $20 will come off the next time I purchase???

  25. Sfontes

    Didn’t work for me☹ just went to CVS.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Bummer! SO sorry to hear that. Hoping a similar offer pops up again soon!

  26. Liza

    I was able to add it on Venmo but not Paypal, does this still work?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      DARN! It seems this is gone now. Thanks for commenting!

  27. Sofiaa

    Maximum number of offers have been reached

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      DARN! Thanks for the letting us know!

  28. W Thiel

    If you downloaded it before max number reached can you still use it today?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! Maybe double check to see if you have it saved to your account and check for the details that may be listed there. Hope that helps!

    • Lori

      Wondering the same

  29. Skuiper

    Anyone who saved it yesterday, successfully use it today?

    • Skuiper

      It still works if you saved the offer yesterday!!! I just did it! Great deal!

      • W. Thiel

        Thanks to you all!

    • Lori

      Saved the code yesterday. How do I use it at checkout today? Never used PayPal at checkout. TIA

      • scottkayla18

        There is a button on the bottom left corner that says scan/pay. Click that and on the top is 3 buttons. Hit the middle button to bring up your bar code thing for them to scan. It will first show you paying the amount they have on the register. But as long as you saved the code yesterday you will get a email saying your real price which will be $20 off of what it says you paid in store. Just did it in mine and had the email saying I only paid $5.64 for over $30 worth of items by the time I got to my car. Hope that helps. Good luck

        • Lori

          Thank you so much for the directions. Appreciate yours and everyone’s help!!! Have a great!!!

          • scottkayla18

            You’re welcome

    • MrsG


  30. missessk

    How do you use it today? It doesn’t show under my offers in Venmo. TIA.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Woohoo! That’s awesome to hear, Michelle! Thanks so much for the sweet comment! 💖

  31. MrsG

    I saved the offer yesterday. I paid $4 for a $24 purchase using venmo today at CVS. I did not get $10 back but hey still a great deal!

  32. Lana

    I saved the offer yesterday to my Venmo account and when I went to CVS, I did the scan and pay. It said it charged me $37.98 so I was pretty bummed out. I just checked Venmo again and it looks like the promo went through! I got charged $7.98. Got four packs of diapers on sale with a $10 ECB back – super happy! Thank you!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh great! You’re welcome, Lana! Thanks for letting us know how it worked out for you!

  33. jet

    I saved it to my PayPal yesterday and I went to cvs today paid $22. and got back $20 and $10 back to PayPal account. Thank you H2S!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Jet!

  34. MsAnnie

    Hi, I just returned from CVS I spent $30.72 and the $20 was taken off my PayPal account so my credit card was only charged $10.72. Besides this great deal I received an email from CVS this morning for $5 off any beauty item, I grabbed a pack of make up remover pads. I bought 9 boxes of cereal, 2 Scope mouthwash on sale with RR and they had on an end cap ARM & Hammer liquid soap 32oz lavender/vanilla fragrance for 29 cents I bought six of them. Thank you so much for posting this offer and explaining how to use it. Thanks for all your hard work also.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      How cool! You’re most welcome! Thanks so much for sharing your score with us!

  35. Molly

    I had saved the offer yesterday to my venmo account and paid $5 instead of $25. Thank you! I am not seeing the $10 credit back though. Was that only if you paid using paypal?
