A new thread was created for the new year in 2017. This is the old thread. For the 2017 on this topic, go here: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/manuf...ad-2017-a.html

CVS is cash only for all Incomm-related reloads and reloadable cards, including Vanilla Reloads and Serve swipe reloads. See memo to stores for complete list. Other cards at CVS can still be bought using credit, but YMMV depending on location, Manager, etc.

New limits rolling out starting 10/20:
Transactions with $300 or more of card face value require ID.
Limit $2000 of card face value per 24 hour rolling period.
Limit of 10 cards per 24 hours.
Cashback posted in 48 hours.

Cash Register Freezing
Multiple reports that the CVS cash register will freeze and lock after scanning the ID when purchasing multiple prepaid cards. Then the register's computer needs to be restarted. Some report that "swiping" the ID instead of "scanning" will avoid the issue.

Limit of 7 tenders (swipes) per transaction. This is most commonly run into when using low-value AGCs. After seven, the transaction must be complete, no cash (or any other payment method) will be accepted to pay the balance.

Exclamation CVS master thread(2013-2016)

Anyone been told that they could only do $1,000/day at CVS. I was used to the $1000/transaction, but not per day...

When does Hilton end the drug store bonus?

Yes. 1k per day. But go in the morning and at night. People at night won't know you went in the morning. Your second question would be in May.

While randomly enforced, it's been that way for a while at many stores

$1k per transaction has been the rule at most of mine. I've never tried to do the AM/PM thing. I doubt CVS has the systems in place to enforce a daily limit, other than by staff people recognizing you.

1K a day seems fair to me.

Local CVSs have been writing your name and last 4 digits of the card (and type of card...) on a chart/clipboard. Ive asked each time how often i can come back and i've been told it's just to monitor once a day.

One however told me that after your name is on the list, you will need to get manager approval for all future purchases. She even said it's now required "by law" that they do it... highly doubt that but whatever, i got my stuff and went on my way.

One of my local CVS's has been $1K per day for a while. The other one, which happens to be in a nicer part of town, is only limited to $1K per transaction. It sure does help to acquaint yourself with the cashiers.
