Which pharmacies are worth switching to
Before we start, we should mention there are a few things to keep in mind. Not only do you want a great incentive to have your housed medications moved, but what else do you expect? Let’s face it, we all want to save money every visit. More and more pharmacies offer a generics savings plan. This is available to everyone, with or without insurance. You will often pay just $4 for a 30 day supply of select generic forms of your drug. The good news is on the list you will find the most commonly prescribed medicines. Some stores have on site clinics. No more wasting hours and taking off work just to be seen at your doctor’s office. You typically do not need an appointment. Fees are low and they may even accept your medical coverage. What about hours? Do you ever find yourself needing a prescription in the wee hours of the night? Perhaps a pharmacy with 24/7 hours would come in handy. These days, some stores will even deliver your prescription right to your home.
So, let’s get on to where the best deals are.
*Safeway, Dominick’s, Vons and Tom Thumb are all managed under the same company. They have truly amazed us practically this entire year. Their deal has been ongoing and does not expire until the very last day of 2012. Transfer your prescription to them and get a $25 reward good for use on your next purchase of $50 or more. There is a limit to one per household. Just hop onto any of their websites and you may read the details. No coupon is needed.
*Walgreens is also on a mission to gather new customers. Their discount is simple. Switch to them and get a $25 coupon. The only difference is their offer is not ongoing. Visit their site and see if it is in effect this week. If not, check again in seven days.
*Other pharmacies worth mentioning are Target, CVS, Walmart and even Cub Foods. To find a prescription transfer deal always head straight to their website and click the “pharmacy” section. You may also check in the store’s weekly circular or simply talk with the pharmacist.
Prescription Transfer Deals Pro-tip
Many pharmacies will allow you to switch one prescription at a time. This means instead of getting one $25 gift card, you could get several. You may need to transfer each medication or drug prescription separately. You will also need to gather several coupons. The extra work is well worth it. 5 medicines transferred to a new pharmacy could mean $125! You will have to check your store for any rules or regulations, always read the fine print. Some people may find this system to be dishonest, others think of it as a loophole. Pharmacies understand that once you are a customer, you are likely to spend a whole lot of money there in your lifetime. People get married, have kids and continue to spend and refill prescriptions. The end result is also a win for them. Do whatever it takes to get you to transfer your prescriptions to them. You will be there for your medications, it is silly not to grab everything else you need while there.
