Kmart: Up to $100 gift card; $25 on each of up to 4 Rx transfers; expires 4/10

In addition to the ad included in their sales flyer two weekends ago, Kmart has new Pharmacy brochures at their stores that feature FOUR (4) coupons -- each that will give you up to a $25 gift card for transfer of a prescription to Kmart.

These are available at some of the checkout counters at Kmart on Bethel Road in Columbus. You might also ask for one at Pharmacy counter.

EXPIRES: 4/10/2010

LIMITATIONS: Four per day/week depending on pharmacist. Some are less/more picky about how many you can use per day/week.

Also, fine print on back stipulates that amount added to gift card will not be more than total price paid for prescription (co-pay, if any, PLUS the amount billed to insurance). Therefore, if you pay $5 and the insurance pays $15, you get $20 gift card. But if you pay $10 and the insurance pays $15 or more, you get the full $25 gift card. Your co-pay can be ZERO and you can still get the full $25 gift card as long as the insurance company is paying $25 or more for your prescription.

WHERE ELSE CAN YOU USE? CVS, Giant Eagle, and Kroger. CVS is the best place to go. They have no limitations at this time on accepting competitor coupons (at least in Central Ohio) and even accept them on refills (not just new/transferred prescriptions). Giant Eagle has ONE PER 6 MONTHS limitation on competitor coupons right now; Kroger for the past few years has been accepting just ONE per day ... and, more sadly, banning customers from using any Rx coupons for life after they think they've used too many. Ask for a copy of their competitor coupon policy (as they promised Better Business Bureau they would provide upon demand after consumer complaint).
