Transfer prescription to Kroger to get $1 off per gallon (no coupon needed; exp. April 18, 2015)

At Kroger pharmacies in Ohio (or at least in the Columbus and Cincinnati metro areas), you can save at the pump by transferring a prescription from a competitor. No Rx coupon is necessary. Just mention you saw an ad for $1 per gallon in fuel savings for transferring a prescription.

The ad was recently on the front page of some newspapers -- The Cincinnati Enquirer and The Kentucky Enquirer. And the Rx transfer incentive was also featured on a postcard mailed out to some areas of Columbus, Ohio. On that one, it show an expiration of April 18, 2015. It says in fine print it's accepted at locations "throughout central Ohio."

Mention this at Giant Eagle pharmacy and they will likely match the offer. Also Giant Eagle will likely not restrict you to ONE per day (... or worse ... as Kroger usually does). However, the wording on the front page of the Enquirer says the 1,000 points are earned for "each prescription transferred..." Before you transfer more than one to them, ask if there's a limit -- per day, per week, per offer, per lifetime.

Coupon: $25 gift card @ Giant Eagle for Rx transfer; expires April 4,2015

Sales flyers arrive in the Powell, Ohio, location of Giant Eagle on Thursday (March 5, 2015) with an Rx coupon on the front that offers a $25 gift card. All you have to do is transfer a prescription from one of their competitors and present the coupon. They even reward you for those that are generics they sell for just $4. That seems too good to be true. :)

And they don't limit how many prescriptions you transfer to them and use a coupon on ... or how many you pick up in one day/transaction with coupons. As I mention at, they are without a doubt the BEST PLACE in Columbus, Ohio, to deal with on Rx coupons -- theirs and competitors. They're great about matching any offer by Kroger, Meijer, CVS, Target, etc.

Plus, their pharmacists and staff are much more friendly.

This coupon expires April 4, 2015.

Need to transfer back to Kroger or somewhere this month?
Kroger claims they will accept competitor coupons. You could take one of these there to see if the sign above the pharmacist is true. But they will likely limit you to ONE per day and other limitations/hurdles Giant Eagle will not put you through.

Transfer Rx to Kroger: Save $1 per gallon (up to $35 value)

Kroger's coupon-less Rx transfer incentive has shown up in Columbus, Ohio, again. This time it expires March 21, 2015.

Remember: Most locations will limit you to ONE per day. Ask your pharmacist for a copy of their prescription coupon policy (especially in regard to their claim of "We Gladly Accept Competitors Coupons"). It's a page long and subject to additional limitations and restrictions and whatever the pharmacist makes up on her/his own.

Refer to the mailing they sent out by postcard as shown below that had coupons attached.

Giant Eagle will likely match/beat this offer if you bring it up ... and allow you to use it for multiple Rx transfers (even their $4 generics) picked up at once. And the FuelPerks don't max out at $1 per gallon. You can get free fill-up @ Giant Eagle. Also the FuelPerks don't expire the next month like Kroger. You get until the end of the month TWO MONTHS AFTER the month in which you earn them.  So, FuelPerks earned today (March 3) would be good until the end of May. And, of course, your co-pays and other purchases count toward more FuelPerks at rate of 20 cents per $50 spent.
