Posted on Tuesday, July 16th, 2013 at 7:00 am
Most of the time, when you think about using coupons to save money, it is the grocery coupons that you have in mind. Did you know that you can also get a great deal from the pharmacy by using their coupons and signing up for their loyalty cards? Here are some tips to help you save money at the pharmacy.
Does your pharmacy accept your health insurance? This is important to know. If it does, then you will be able to save some money on your prescription medications. You might want to ask your doctor, or your pharmacist, if a generic version of your medication would cost less than the name brand.
What if your pharmacy doesn’t accept your health insurance? A good way to save money is to transfer your prescriptions to a pharmacy that does take it. Many offer special deals when you do that.
Kmart pharmacy will give Shop Your Way Members up to $100.00 in Kmart Gift Cards with the purchase of up to 4 transferred prescriptions.
Vons pharmacy will give you a $25.00 reward coupon when you transfer your prescription. This offer is valid for people who have the Vons Card through December 31, 2013.
CVS pharmacy lets you earn $5.00 in Extrabucks rewards when you fill 10 prescriptions at CVS pharmacy.
Walmart pharmacy has a special offer where you can get a 30-day supply of your prescription medication for $4.00. Or, you can get a 90-day supply for $10.00.
You can also save some money by getting the loyalty card that the pharmacy offers. This will give you access to coupons. The coupons may be for a wide variety of products from all over the store. Each store has a different name for their loyalty program.
Walgreens has Balance Rewards.
Target pharmacy has Target Pharmacy Rewards.
Rite Aid has a Wellness + program.
CVS has an Extracare Card.
It is also a good idea to get familiar with the store’s coupon policy. One way to do that is to check their website for current information about it. Or, you can ask the sales clerk or pharmacist for information about what kinds of coupons the store accepts. Once you understand their coupon policy, you can find ways to use it to your advantage and save even more money!
