Do you have a prescription that needs to be filled by the end of the month (ie. today)? If you don’t care where you pick it up, you can transfer frequently and take advantage of different drug store and grocery store deals (and actually earn some great *free* gift cards for pharmacy purchases).
No one in my household currently has prescribed medications, but my sister recently asked me if I knew of any great coupons or deals out there for transferring prescriptions. Here are some of my finds on the best prescription transfer offers that are currently out there in the Northern Virginia/Washington DC metropolitan area.
Rite Aid: There were two printable coupons available here earlier this month (but it seems like the site is experiencing difficulties right now) good for a $25 gift card when you transfer a prescription (limit 1 per coupon). So you can transfer up to 2 prescriptions and get a $25 gift card for each. That is $50 in gift cards total! Coupon expires today 9/30/10. Offer only valid when prescription is filled and paid for at time of transfer. Transfer offer only valid on any prescription not previously filled at our transferred from other Rite Aid locations.
Walgreens: If you live near a newly opened Walgreens (it seem like a ton of them have been popping up in Northern VA), ask at the pharmacy desk if they have a $25 check or gift card offer when you transfer over a prescription.
CVS: According to my local CVS pharmacist, they accept competitor coupons for these offers. Please be sure to call ahead to your local CVS to confirm.
Giant Food: According to my local pharmacist told me that they accept competitor’s coupons. Please be sure to call ahead to your local Giant to confirm.
Wegmans: According to the pharmacist at the Leesburg, VA location, they currently have a promotion (at the Leesburg store only) for a $20 coupon off a future grocery purchase, for new prescription customers/transfers at their pharmacy. With the transfer or start of a new prescription, they will give you a punch card, and each time you refill you get another punch. Each punch equals another $20 gift card, with a limit of up to 5 $20 gift cards total. This offer expires today 09/30/10.
Harris Teeter: My local pharmacist said that they accept competitor coupons. Please call your local Harris Teeter to confirm.
