BEWARE: Giant Eagle only accepting 1 compeitor coupon per 6 months

Yes, as ridiculous as it sounds, Giant Eagle has switched from taking an unlimited number of competitor coupons at their Pharmacy to accepting only ONE (1) per SIX (6) months.

As I mention in another blog posting, this is a good reason to transfer all your prescriptions away from Giant Eagle (and other pharmacies) to CVS and leave them there. Not only do CVS stores in Central Ohio honor an unlimited number of competitor coupons, but they also have a unique special that allows you to use coupons for REFILLS as well as when you bring them a new/transferred prescription.

NEED coupons to take with you to CVS? Well, Giant Eagle does have one in their sales flyers at a couple of locations this week with their usual "Up to $30 savings" with new/transferred Rx coupons where you earn $1 in FuelPerks for each prescription you bring them (as long as you have a separate coupon for each). It says it's valid at Blacklick location only. But CVS hasn't minded taking them outside the "greater Blacklick metro area." ;-)

These two Giant Eagles have the coupons in their sales flyers this week (inside the back page of the short wrap-around):

Blacklick Giant Eagle
6867 East Broad Street
Columbus, OH 43213

McCutcheon & Stelzer Giant Eagle
2900 Stelzer Road
Columbus, OH 43219

Ones in stores through today (Wednesday, Dec. 2) expire Dec. 23, 2009.
Those that will be in stores beginning on Thursday, Dec. 3 (through Wednesday, Dec. 9) expire Dec. 30, 2009.

By the way, when trying to check their "Weekly Specials" now, they've made it a little more difficult on their website to check multiple stores. You need to click "Make Primary Store" beside one and then go to "Weekly Specials" to see the specials for that store. Then if you go to the "Weekly Specials" link beside any other store, it will still show you the flyer for your Primary Store and not any other. So you have to change your Primary Store to another location and then click Weekly Specials again to see what's different at that location.
