Rx Transfer Coupon Basics
Q. What are Prescription Transfer Coupons?
A. These are coupons that stores offer as incentives for your business. They want your Pharmacy business, and often they are willing to pay (usually in gift card form) if you switch to their pharmacy.
Q. How do I use these coupons?
A. If you have a prescription that you are needing to refill, just take the empty bottle into the store you want to transfer to, give them the bottle and the coupon. When you pay for the prescription, they will give you the gift card.
Or, If you just had the prescription issued (like if your child has an ear infection), Just call your prescription 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.
A few things to note:1. If you have multiple prescriptions you may want to keep them all at one place. I remember reading an article about Pharmacists who are frustrated with these coupons, because if you have multiple prescriptions scattered at different pharmacies it is near impossible to track for interactions between medications.
2. Check the fine print. Some stores limit how many prescriptions you can transfer in a certain period of time.
3. Some Pharmacies are rumored to accept other Pharmacy's Transfer coupons. I have heard this about Shopko and CVS. You may ask around and see if this would work for you!
