Prescription Transfer Deals


Companies want your business!! Take advantage of these offers and make some dough...
(in the form of giftcards!)
Just call your prescription (for you, your husband or kids) into your usual place and then immediately call one of these businesses and have them switch the prescription to their store. Just take the coupon in when you go to pick up your prescription... Finally it pays to need drugs!

  • RiteAid has an online coupon for a $25 Gift Card when you transfer a prescription to their store. Just print this coupon and take it in when you pick up your meds. Plus, you can use 2 per person, so you can make up to $50 per family member if you use multiple prescriptions!! Offer expires 3/31/09

  • Target has a coupon in most of their Sunday Ads for $10 when you transfer a prescription. Make sure you have the coupon before you transfer it. Also, Target has $4 generics. And the only Target Pharmacy in the Treasure Valley is the Nampa Store.

  • Walgreen's also has a coupon in their ad every couple of weeks. It is usually $25 when you transfer one prescription. Just be on the lookout for it...

  • I also heard, but haven't confirmed, that Shopko will take their competitors pharmacy transfer coupons. Call your store before you try, to confirm.

  • Thanks to Tricia for the heads up... In the Sunday paper (not sure if it was this week or two Sunday's ago... sorry!) there was a coupon for a $25 gift card at Fred Meyer's when you transfer a prescription to their pharmacy.
  • And thanks also to Jamie- for all you local Merdian readers, here is another great option. The Medicap Pharmacy located at Cherry and Ten Mile will give you a $10 Gas Card for new transfers. And... they deliver! Man- this would have been perfect when I was pregnant and sick! Call for more details, their number is (208) 288-1496

I've done that at Shopko many times - they'll match any of the competitors, just take the ad. Also, Fred Meyer had a coupon for a $25 gift card in their ad last week for transferred prescriptions. I've never seen them do that before and am excited to use it!

I used the Fred Meyer prescription coupon last week. Be aware that you are not able to use the gift card for about an hour after it's charged up.

This is a great deal and I have used it several times but you have to be careful...several of these stores have a rule that you can't earn a gift card for a new or transferred prescription more than once in a 6 month period. I know Walgreens has this rule and I think Target does too.

Can you please explain how to transfer a prescription. I would like to transfer one from Fred Meyer to Walgreens.

Shanny- If you already have the prescription at a different pharmacy just call the one you want to switch to and give them your info and they will get it transferred. If you have a new prescription, have the dr call it into your regular place and then immediately call the place you want to switch to and have them transfer it.
(So for you, just call Walgreens and tell them you want your prescription transferred, and they will get all the info they need from you.) Hope this helps.

Heather- Here is a Pharmacy that you missed. Can you give them a shout out too! Thanks! It is a locally private owned Pharmacy named MediCap Pharmacy. It's located on Cherry and Ten Mile
(2790 W. Cherry lane) in meridian. They offer a $10 gas card with a new Transfer. You just have to mention it in the store if you did not receive the mailer. Also, they ALWAYS offer FREE delivery!!! Which is wonderful if you have a sick kid. Have the Dr call the script in from the office and then go home and have it delivered to your house! So Convenient!!!I have found that their Customer Service is far above all the others!
