Giant Eagle coupon worth up to $30 (accepted by Wal-Mart & CVS)

Giant Eagle has again included a coupon for $1 in FuelPerks for each new/transferred prescription you bring them (as long as you bring a separate coupon for each). See previous postings for some other restrictions at some other locations.

Value = Up to $30.
Expires Feb. 4, 2009

Which of the 20+ Central Ohio Giant Eagle locations have these coupons in their sales flyer this week? At least the one on Whittier. Use the "Giant Eagle Coupon finder" -- -- to click on "View weekly specials" link at store closest to you to see if Page 12 (back page) has the coupon or just a smiling pharmacist. Then click on others further from you until you find one. They are typically at entrance to store (though Hilliard one keeps the coupons behind the service counter usually).


WAL-MART. I found out that Wal-Mart (at least one on Bethel near Sawmill) accepts these and you can use mutliple ones in one visit (as long as the coupon doesn't say anything about "one per visit/transaction" as Walgreen's coupons do. One thing Wal-Mart does, though, with competitor coupons is only give a gift card UP TO the amount you pay as a co-pay. Thus, a $30 coupon for a drug that you pay $18.50 co-pay only gets you gift card of $18.50. But if you have a $60 co-pay (or any amount at or above $30), you get the full $30 gift card. I was pleasantly surprised with how courteous and prompt their service was at Wal-Mart -- a pharmacy I hadn't used until just recently.

CVS. At least some of the ones I've tried will take them. One said they only give $20 for this particular one because most cars only hold 20 gallons or less. But if I brought in a receipt for buying 30 gallons of gas in one transaction, he'd give me the full $30.
