A question I often get asked is, “What stores will pay me to switch my prescription?” While the majority of the time this is very store-specific, Walgreens is running a national deal! Right now, if you switch your prescription to Walgreens, they’ll give you a $25.00 Walgreens Gift Card! You’ll need to sign in or register online and enter your prescription information. Once you’ve done this, you’ll receive a coupon after your checkout. Take it to Walgreens when you pick up your prescription. This offer is not available in Alabama, Arkansas, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New York, New Jersey, North Dakota, Oregon and Puerto Rico. Please visit Walgreens.com for more information.

    Maybe they should give me $25 to STAY, lol.  I see this offer from other pharmacies from time to time.

      Honestly, It never hurts to ask!

      Long before this Rx-transferring craze came about, my Mom had been doing this. She would do exactly as you mentioned though. She would just go up to the Pharmasist and say “So-and-So store is offering me ______ to transfer (she’d show the ad or promotion) then just simply ask if they would be willing to match it if she stayed. She’d “make” about $100 a year doing that because each and every time they DID give her the deal in order to keep her with them. 

      I’m not saying this’ll happen for everyone, but it never hurts to ask. Good luck!

    I tried this a couple of months ago and WG no longer accepts my insurance.  It turns out that the prescription I transferred was cheap so I still came out ahead paying out of pocket, but that would not be the case on other prescriptions my family has.  Be careful doing this deal and get a price on the prescription to make sure your insurance is accepted or if not, you come out ahead by paying out of pocket.  WG has a generic program that costs $20/yr (?) and offers many generic medicines for less than many insurance copays; but again price it out, because it is not available on all medicines.  I’m sure you could find more info and actually price some medications on their website.

    The coupons in the store have a space for a cashier’s name, it’s supposed to be the cashier who referred you. That cashier will earn promotional money (in my district it’s $5) just for having their name on the coupon. So if you are going to go in to pick up a coupon on your own, you could put your favorite cashiers name on it to give them a special bonus on their paycheck.

    I took the coupon to my publix and got a publix gc instead ( make sure you call first some said no but some said yes and they also did it with a new prescripton too

    The problem with Walgreens and prescriptions is that they no longer accept Express Scripts for insurance patients….which means they’re not even an option for me.

    KMart is also offering a $25 gift card to Shop Your Way Rewards members who transfer a prescription before 8/4/12.
