Did you know that CVS will pay you to bring your prescription to CVS? That’s right! Every Sunday I look in sales flyer’s and I always clip prescription transfer coupons for new or transferred prescriptions. Rite Aid is my number one source but I also find them in Targets ads, Meijer ads, and occasionally Kroger sends some of them to me. CVS will honor all competitor prescription coupons. Here is an example of the transaction I did at CVS tonight:
- I had a prescription filled at CVS
- My cost after insurance $9.89
- I used my Humana Access Card to pay the $9.89 (medical flex account funds)
- I gave CVS a Rite Aid prescription coupon valued at $25.00
- CVS gave me a $25.00 gift card to CVS
- I made a profit of $15.11.
- This is the only prescription I have so I would not bounce prescriptions around if I had multiple prescriptions (mistakes can be made and a few dollars is not worth my family’s health or my health)
I clip all prescription coupons that I find as I never know when someone in my family will get sick. I don’t always fill them at CVS – it depends on my location at the time that I need the prescription filled. However, I try and fill most of them at CVS. You won’t be able to use that gift card to pay for that prescription but you will be able to use it on future prescriptions.
