Walgreens $25 gift card for transferred prescription

Best part: It's good through January 10, 2009!

It says "FREE $25 Walgreens Gift Card With any transferred prescription purchase," so it would seem you can not bring in a NEW prescription. Also, in the fine print, it says, "Limit one Gift Card offer per customer, per transaction." Not sure how that will be interpreted by your pharmacy -- one per person per day? per visit? per purchase/transaction?


For no hassle, go to Giant Eagle with this coupon and they'll let you use as many as you have prescriptions. Whether it's a $4 or $100 prescription co-pay, you still get the $25 gift card for each. Some might insist it be "transfer" as it says on the coupon. Others might let you also bring "new" prescriptions for the deal.

For perhaps some hassle, try CVS or Meijer.

For more hassle, try Wal-Mart. I've heard that they no longer give more in gift card value than your co-pay. So, for a $4 co-pay, you only get $4 on the gift card. I haven't confirmed this yet.

For lots of hassle, go to Kroger. They'll let you use ONE per DAY per customer. If you have a prescription for TWO or more family members, you can get ONE per DAY per person. Also, their "We Gladly Accept Competitors Coupons" policy in the Great Lakes region (most of Ohio, except Cincy/Dayton, and Michigan, WV) indicates this restriction and says it's only intended to let people try out their stores and choose one pharmacy to stick with -- implying they'll cut you off from these coupon matches after 3 or 4 visits.


* Pretty easy. Just walk into a Walgreen's and pick one up at the front of the store. Not sure if these are just in Columbus, Ohio, area. I received one through the "bag of junk" that gets dropped on my doorstep every week. And then I stopped by Walgreen's near me to ensure there were extras there. Sometimes the flyers in the stores don't have the same wrap-around with coupon that you get through other means -- direct mail, drop off bag, etc. (where they can more easily limit your coupon acquisition ;-).

Target has $10 coupon in sales flyer this week

Get a $10 Target gift card for each prescription you bring to Target (as transfer or new script). These were in the Target sales flyers -- at least those distributed in The Columbus Dispatch today.

If you missed it, you can go to the Customer Service desk at Target and ask for one ... and maybe do that a couple of times this week if you need more than one.

If you need a bunch, the Sunday Dispatch is on sale at Giant Eagle all week. And sometimes you can find them at the Dollar Tree store too. They're cheaper after Sunday. ;-)

Already have all your prescriptions at Target? That's OK, you can transfer your drugs to any of these stores that accept them and will give you $10 gift card or Rx Reward or something:

-Giant Eagle

Pretty good deal. But you might want to look around for some Giant Eagle $30 off gas coupons first. :-)
