Get a Gift for Transferring Your Drugs: a battle between pharmacies

Rite Aid and CVS are both giving $25 gift cards for each prescription transferred to their respective stores, as part of their efforts to draw in customers from each other.  Take advantage of that battle.

To get the deal, you should bring your empty prescription bottles/ boxes and present the coupon for a $25 gift card.  Click here and here for current CVS and Rite Aid coupons, respectively.  The Rite Aid coupon linked here expires on September 30, 2009 and the CVS one, on October 4, 2009.  But keep an eye out for newer coupons printed out with your receipts at CVS or Rite Aid or in newspapers or online – this promotion has been going on for months and is constantly being renewed.

There is no limit to how many CVS gift cards you can get, but Rite Aid limits its gift cards to 2.  The CVS deal is not valid fromNew York or New Jersey, while Rite Aid allows residents of New Jersey who are over 60 years of age to participate.

And there is no minimum purchase to get a $25 gift card.  Last week, for example, I took a prescription to CVS that cost me $10 and still got a $25 gift card (yes, CVS effectively paid me to get my prescription).  And at CVS, pay attention to the coupons you get with your receipt because some of them can also be used for new prescriptions.  When you are sick, these gift cards are at least one thing that can brighten your day.
