The Express Scripts is just to let people know they are taking that insurance again. They had a scrabble with one another and quit taking that insurance for awhile. It is a great deal for us that have that insurance. We get to go back to Wags and make 25.00 with each script we bring back. ( Not to confuse with my last line-ANYONE can use the Q except the insurance it states in the fine print of the Q)
Oh, I do want to add tho-just like CVS--you want to price the drug because they are so much higher even with a Q you may not come out ahead. Double that if you don't have insurance. I priced a drug I was getting at Target for 8.79 ( regular price--not co-pay) thought even tho they didn't take my insurance last month I might still come out ahead using the $25 Q. It was 75.00 at Wags (reg. price) I told them Wow-and what it was at Target--he just laughed and said that is a big difference. Filled it at Target.

Wags is expensive compared to CVS even. I have a script that retails at over $900 per month's supply at Wags. CVS fills it for around $720 or sometimes even below $700. Kroger has the same price as CVS. Good thing my copay is $15 on it.

Wags has the same coupon out for the week of 9/23/12.

Mine is too. But it is very interesting to see how much the pharmacies actually charge people without insurance. It does make a difference to shop around if one does not have any coverage. But couponers are born shopping around laugh out loud

The RA ad this week has two Q's for $25 UP when you transfer a Rx to RA. CVS should honor it with a $25 GC if you have RA in your area.

Did CVS reverse their policy about not taking competitor coupons or is it at the discretion of the store to accept them or not?

Q. What types of pharmacy coupons do you accept?

A. Here are guidelines surrounding pharmacy coupons:

CVS/pharmacy does accept competitor coupon and transfer offers; however, matching or providing incentive for an automatic refill program is strictly prohibited. It is against CVS/pharmacy policy to accept this type of competitor coupon for enrollment in ReadyFill®.

Coupon offers are not valid and must not be honored for prescriptions paid for in whole or in part by state and or federal health care programs. These programs include Medicare, Medicaid and TriCare.

Coupons also are void where prohibited by law. Coupon offers are not valid for prescriptions purchased in the states of AL, NJ and NY, and on any prescription for a controlled dangerous substance in the states of HI and LA.

The gift card received from a coupon offer cannot be used to pay for the same purchase but can be used for future purchases.

CVS/pharmacy will not accept offers printed from unauthorized internet postings, copies or facsimiles of any offer. The original valid coupon must be presented at the time of purchase.

For those of you who shop around and pay cash remember to use prescription drug cards. They really do bring prices down. I use the UNA card and Health Trans Access. You can check prices ahead of time on their sites and based on your location. The prices will still be different at different store but it helps you compare and you can use your pharmacy coupons as well. The drug cards have taken meds down to $10 from $70 for me(although not all savings will be this great).


As to CVS not taking coupons, they all try to make their own rules. But a good idea is to have the print out that someone just posted here of what their website says about it. If you have a problem ask them for the name and number of the pharmacy general manager for their area. The first time I had a problem the general manager sent me a gift card to make up for the coupon I missed out on. Of course it just happened again and they tried to give me a list of reasons why they can't take the coupon(Meijer is not our competitor, we can't scan this barcode, etc.). I called the general manager again and she is sending me a coupon for double the value of the coupon for my trouble. Of course usually I would just avoid CVS but I needed to get something after Meijer pharmacy was closed and where I live there is a single 24 hour CVS so there's really no place else to go late at night.

In my area with the drug discount cards Meijer is usually cheapest but once in a while Kroger or CVS will actually be much cheaper on a certain drug. Surprisingly some hospital pharmacies will sometimes be very cheap on certain meds as well. So much cheaper it doesn't make sense to go to a regular pharmacy and use a coupon. Some stores, like Kmart, will only give you a gift card equal to what the med cost and it's on the fine print of the coupons they issue(not sure if they take competitor coupons too). The great thing about stores like Meijer is they will give you $20 when you fill a $4 prescription. I pretty much make a profit on all my meds right now.

It shouldn't. The general manager for pharmacies in my area says the same rules apply for the whole chain and stores should not be making up their own rules.


Many stores (including Meijer) complain to me at the time I'm paying how it's a loss for them. I know they made up for it when I had insurance and was taking a $700 and $350 a month meds. Plus they have a ton of customers on expensive meds like this many of whom aren't even using coupons. And of course where I live there quite a few people who think they are too good for coupons. Half the people I offer coupons to in the store act offended. And if they are worried about loss why are they giving away free antibiotics(certain types), pre-natal vitamins, and metformin?




Sorry for all the edits but I keep thinking of points to add.

People have always said that Costco is cheapest on meds and you don't have to have a membership to use the pharmacy. However, in my area I'm finding plenty of pharmacies that are cheaper than Costco or will match Costco.

My doctor called in a new rx to ralphs, but I haven't picked it up yet. I have a walgreens Q for a gift card w/transfer, if I get Walgreens to call Ralphs for the rx (which hasn't been purchased yet), will it count as a transfer or still be considered new?

No, the Q won't work unless the script has been filled previously.

Rite Aid had "$25 up reward" for rx transfer coupons in last week's sale ad (3/17-3/23 sale) here. Limit 2 per household, other standard restrictions. Expires 3/30. (Sorry, I meant to post this sooner...)

Since there's still time, I'd be happy to send some out in exchange for a few Allegra $6 coupons from last week's RP (3/17).
