Target: $10 gift card for NEW or Transferred Rx

In the Target sales flyer this week, there is a coupon on the inside of the back page.

It's the usual incentive to bring a NEW or transferred prescription to Target for a $10 gift card (regardless of the amount of your co-pay or even if there is none as long as it's not the government paying for the drug).

Expires: March 28.

REMINDER:  Most CVS, Giant Eagle, Rite Aid, and Kroger locations will also accept these "competitor coupons" and give you a $10 gift card or something similar.  To see which ones give you least/most hassle, go to

OHIO residents:  Remember that the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy enacted a new rule on Jan. 1, 2011, that limits your ability to transfer a prescription (any prescription) to just ONCE.  So, if you have something with 11 refills and use a NEW prescription coupon on it at Target and then a TRANSFER coupon to take it to CVS, you won't be able to move it again.  You could, however, ask your doctor to write 2 or 3 prescriptions for a single drug -- each with fewer refills.  Each script/paper could be transferred once.   Just be sure to submit them before the 6-month limit is reached and they expire earlier than they usually would (a year after written).
