Say goodbye to the days of being able to play jump rope with your extra long CVS receipts.
The company announced on its Facebook page Friday that in coming weeks customers will start receiving normal-sized receipts but still get to keep all the savings, which will now be sent digitally to their ExtraCare savings card.
"Over the past few days we’ve been listening to you (and we’ve also seen the very creative uses for your receipts)! You asked for ALL the savings and LESS paper," CVS Chief Marketing Officer Rob Price wrote on Facebook. "So, we’ve found a way to reduce the size of the ExtraCare portion of your receipts by 25% while still providing you all the coupons and rewards"
The parody account features photos of CVS shoppers posing with their lengthy receipts. Some of the more notable pictures include adults showcasing receipts that are longer than they are tall, and others showing feet of paper simply for purchasing one item.
The new receipts won't be as easy to poke fun at, but they are expected to be better for the environment and more convenient for shoppers.
