Last call for Giant Eagle coupons?

The preview is now out (through email and on the http://GiantEagle.com website) of the new sales flyers for the Columbus area that arrive in mailboxes tomorrow and in stores on Thursday.

Something missing (at least at my store) is the Rx Coupon for up to $30 savings that's been in the past several issues area-wide.

So be sure to stock up on the ones in stores until Wednesday. And, if you find some at certain locations in town, please share news about them as a comment to this message.

Giant Eagle: Up to $30 (Exp. 8/19)

In Columbus, Giant Eagle sales flyers that arrived in stores today (and mailboxes 2 days ago) again contain an Rx coupon. It's on the back page.

This one expires Aug. 19.

For each NEW or TRANSFERRED prescription (you'll need a separate coupon for each), you'll earn $1 in FuelPerks that are good for at least 90 days. For each $50 you spend on Rx or groceries, you earn another 20 cents in FuelPerks.

So if you take 2 prescriptions to them with coupons and spend $100 on copays and groceries, you'll have $2.40 in FuelPerks already -- good for a FREE fillup at current $2.38ish per gallon ... Up to 30 gallons ... Gas cans permitted for what doesn't fit.

See previous posts about Giant Eagle Rx coupons for details.

Kmart: Save up to $100 -- Four $25 gift card coupons (Expire 12/31/2009)

At Kmart stores, look for or ask for a small brochure that says on the outside: "kmart pharmacy: get up to $100." Inside are four coupons for "free $25 gift card when you transfer your prescription."

Limit 4 per customer.

Expire Dec. 31, 2009.

Fine print: The total of what you pay and your health insurance pays for a prescription must exceed $25 to get full $25 gift card.

Kmart: Up to $100 for transferring 4 prescriptions

In the Kmart sales flyer this week, there's a coupon that's worth up to $100 in Kmart gift cards.

For each prescription transferred to Kmart, you can earn up to $25. You can bring up to FOUR prescriptions for a total of $100 with this coupon.

As it states, the value of the gift card is not to exceed the "full retail value" of the prescription. To me, that sounds like they mean the TOTAL cost of the prescription and NOT just your Co-Pay amount. After all, if you were not using insurance, the "full retail value" would be this total amount. For example, a drug where you pay a $15 co-pay, it may have cost your health care provider another $30 for a "total retail value" of $45. To further back this up, read in the final sentence of the fine print: "The retail/insurance reimbursed value of the prescription must exceed the value of the gift card offer to qualify for the full value of the offer."

Hurry, though, it expires 7/25/09.

I can certainly understand if you buy a $10 prescription where you make a $5 co-pay, they're only going to give you $10 (or maybe $5) and not $25.

Although CVS accepts competitors coupons, I was told Monday (7/13) that they will only give $50 for 4 prescriptions brought with this coupon regardless of the co-pays or costs of the 4 prescriptions I'd transferred there. So I used different coupons. For details about "Best and Worst Pharmacies to Use Rx Coupons ... and to Use Competitor's Coupons," see http://BestWorstRx.blogspot.com .

In the fine print it says something about "Receive this special offer when you bring this certificate with the purchase of two new or transferred prescriptions" but I think that's left over boilerplate from their usual coupon that has room to write in TWO Rx#s vs. FOUR.

It seems to allow you to bring in 1, 2, 3, or 4 "new or transferred." The big print just mentions "transfer" but the fine print clearly mentions "new" prescriptions being eligible too.

Giant Eagle up to $30 per prescription new/transferred by 8/5

At Giant Eagle, sales flyers in most (if not all) Columbus area stores feature on the back page their awesome Rx coupon that lets you save up to $30 on gas per prescription new/transferred by 8/5.

No limit. You just need a separate coupon for each new/transferred prescription. That earns you $1 in FuelPerks for each. Plus another 20 cents in FuelPerks per $50 in copays and grocery purchases.

So 2 prescriptions with copays totalling $50 plus $100 in groceries earns you a FREE FILL UP already at current $2.50ish per gallon. And if your vehicle doesn't hold that much, they're cool with you bringing gas cans to fill up. Felt like a weasel til I saw people with pricey cars in Powell doing same thing with 3 cans. ;-)

Oh, and for every 10 gallons you pump (even the free ones), you earn 1% in FoodPerks -- to save on grocery/merchandise purchase. You can collect up to 20% in FoodPerks and use on purchase up to $300; thus, up to $60 savings.

Both types of Perks last at least 3 months.

Thanks, Giant Eagle! You rock!

Giant Eagle up to $30 in free/discounted fuel for each new/transferred prescription; no limit

Giant Eagle has been widely promoting the return of their "$1 in FuelPerks (up to $30 value)" Rx coupon that is in the sales flyers that were in stores through today and in the new ones that just arrived in the mail and will be in stores Thursday (July 2) through Wednesday (July 8).

They seem to be in sales flyers at all Columbus area stores. And they've been mentioned in radio and TV ads this week.

Giant Eagle does not limit how many new/transferred prescriptions you bring them using these coupons. Just make sure you have a separate coupon for each that hasn't expired.

Latest ones (appearing in stores tomorrow -- July 2) expire July 29.

Where else can you use these?
CVS will give you $20 gift card for these and Kroger will give you $30 Rx Rewards (with limitations ... up to one a day ... up to certain # per customer/lifetime; see matrix.Rx4less.net).

Target $10 gift card with new/transferred prescription

Target's usual Rx coupon is in their sales flyer this week (that came out in the Sunday newspaper and is available in stores through July 4 at the customer service counter).

$10 gift card for EACH new or transferred prescription you bring them with a coupon. Multiple prescriptions require multiple coupons, of course.

Giant Eagle, CVS, and Kroger also accept these. See matrix.Rx4less.net for details.
