CVS Advisor Panel & Blue Cross Blue Shield Rewards

Hey, Y'all!

I am so incredibly busy and have been over the last six months.  I promise when I get a moment to do so, I will tell you all a little about my family's journey to recovery.  But, in the meantime, I will give you a little help I can give you to help you save more dollars everyday.

First, I want to encourage you to join the CVS Advisor Panel.  Once you join, about once a month and sometimes less often, you will get an invite to complete a survey.  If you qualify for the survey, you will receive a CVS ExtraCare Bucks Reward for from $5 to $15.  The survey posts in the wee hours of the morning and occasionally early afternoon.  You really have to jump on it because once the available slots have been filled, the survey closes.   I lucked up on $5 this morning.  I will use that $5 to grab some great discounts this coming weekend.

Next, if you are have CareFirst Blue Cross Blue Shield Insurance or FEPBlueCross/BlueShield Insurance,
you are sitting on a veritable gold mine of rewards.  These rewards are meant to monitor your health and get you on the road to a healthier lifestyle. 
Depending upon your age and when your coverage began, you have from 120 days to one year to complete the tasks. 
Each adult
can "earn from $100 to $600 to a family maximum of $75 to $1,500 per year for taking certain steps to get and stay healthy. 
Your reward can be used toward your annual deductible; out-of-pocket costs like co-pays;
coinsurance related to eligible expenses (medical, prescription drugs, dental, and vision)..."

As far as I could tell from my online "research" all other brands of Blue Cross Blue Shield offer the "Blue Rewards". 
You can find out for certain by either calling the customer service number on the back of your insurance card
or go to your Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance website and search "blue rewards".

(Each task below will earn you FEPBlue Cross/Blue Shield "Blue Rewards")

I did not do any "Blue Rewards" tasks last year and I could just kick myself for missing out on all that money. 
The previous year my husband and I earned a total of about $400 and did not complete all the tasks. 

After completing your first task, you will receive a debit/credit card. 
The card will be automatically loaded with rewards every time you complete a task.
The "Blue Rewards" debit card can only be used for co-pays, prescription meds, over the counter meds, and other health related purchases. 

Here are the links to sign up:   CareFirst "Blue Rewards", FEPBlue Rewards, and a video explaining Carefirst "Blue Rewards". 
The sign up process and navigation through the tasks can be a bit tedious but so worth the effort. 
If you need help, I will be so very glad to help you. Just send me an email.

If you do not have Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance, ask your insurance provider if your plan includes monetary health rewards for a healthy lifestyle.

Have Fun Saving Money!!!
