Prescription Transfer Coupons + Where To Find FREE Antibiotics

by Tara Kuczykowski on January 13, 2010 · 34 comments


With cold and flu season upon us, many of you are probably needing to fill prescriptions, so I thought I'd round up a few ways you can save using prescription transfer coupons and/or free antibiotics programs.

Current Printable Prescription Transfer Coupons:

FREE Antibiotics Programs:

In addition, Kroger, Target, and Walmart all currently have $4 generic prescriptions programs

Do you know of any other stores offering prescription transfer coupons or free and cheap prescriptions to add to this list?

CVS often has offers for a free twenty five dollar gift card with a new or transferred prescription. My CVS takes expired ones of these but my friends CVS doesn't. Not sure if they take competetors?

Dominick's in store ad had a $30 gift card with Rx transfer coupon in it! I'm transferring on my next refill, valid through 1/26.

My local Wegmans in NY also offer free antibiotics.

Just a note: I tried the free gift card for prescription transfers to Target and CVS and it's not allowed by law in NY and NJ. Just a heads up for those of you in those states.

CVS takes competitor's q's. I received an offer for the free 25 dollar gift card out of the in store scanner. Just another reason to scan your card!

Several of my families meds have coupons on the manufacturers website. This lowers our copay on meds that do not have a generics available. Ex. Nasonex. Sometimes you can get 4 or 6 months worth of coupons from the mfr just for signing up. Usually they are around $20 or $25. Worth checking into if you have a high copay on a med.

Meijers has had 20% off your total grocery and HBC when you get a new or transferred prescription at their pharmacy. It was not in this weeks ad but I have seen it several times since before Christmas. I know it was in last weeks ad(perhaps you may still have it). I was surprised when they took 20% off every grocery item even if I had used a mfg coupon and a Meijer Mealbox coupon. I saved $30 plus all my coupons.

Sometimes when I transfer a prescription from Walgreens, I notice in a month or two, we will get a $25 check to exchange for a $25 Walgreens gift card when you get a new or transferred prescription at their pharmacy. However each family can only use a check every 6 months. A little confusing but I have found the pharmacy employees to be very helpful and willing to check in the computer to find when the last check has been used.

I tried the Target coupon yesterday in NJ and it is only valid for those 60 and over. I was NOT happy.

Market Street gives free antibiotics and free prenatal vitimains.

Also my Dr. has given be cards for proventil and symbocort to use for my RX's On Proventil it gave me my first fill free then it is $25.00 off of the next 4 refills (This is in addition to insurance). I just used the Symbocort one and it gave me my first fill free, I have 11 refills that it will deduct up to $25.00 off my copay (what the insurance will pay). I know there are other similair offers. The drug companies are feeling a pinch in the ecomony and this is one way they are helping out the consumer as well as helping their bottom line. Ask your doctor the next time you are in if he has "free samples or a card that will help curb your cost".

I know that many drug companies have coupons out too. My prescription for YAZ has a $20 card that I downloaded from the website. Yaz-us.com.
My doc also gave me a sample when I was last in. Every little bit helps.

Thanks! I'm writing a post with a link back to you now :)

Walgreens also has a Prescription Saving Club with 400 generic medications.
$12 for a 90-day supply and $9.99 for a 30-day supply.

Happy Couponing!

Safeway ads have a 30 DOLLAR coupon sometimes. There was on in the Arizona ad last week!

Here's a list of some of the stores that accept competitor coupons - http://www.centsablemomma.com/competitor-prescription-coupon-policies

Many stores will only accept "true" competitor coupons. So if you don't have a Rite Aid in your area, they are not likely to accept a Rite Aid coupon (although you can always try).

Plus, some chains are store specific on accepting competitor coupons. For example, someone told me that Kroger accepted competitor coupons, but mine doesn't. It's always best to call and ask before you make a special trip.

Sam's Club does the same $4 generic prescription program that Walmart does. We go there because the lines are shorter than Walmart. They let us in without a membership if we're just going to the pharmacy.

Thanks for this great information. I had no idea about free antibiotics programs! Stinks that I just filled my daughter's ammoxicillin Rx @ Wag's for $12+, right next door to Schnuck's, where I could have gotten it for FREE! :(

Can someone please tell me about the freeantibotics program? How does it work? My CVS just fills it and charges me $20.00.....Thanks

Jane, I don't believe that CVS had a free antibiotics program. Do you have any of the other stores I mentioned above near you?

Reply

30 chutzler February 5, 2010 at 7:54 pm

I have noticed that the CVS coupons are for new OR transferred prescriptions but the other stores' coupons are not worded that way. So if you just have to get an antibiotic for an ear infection, would you be able to use the Target or KMart Qs that say only "transferred" prescription?
Thanks!

Just wonderin'....below the heading, it reads, "Printable current coupons" for Target, but I cannot find anyplace where I can actually print this. I went to the Target site, but don't see a category for Pharmacy under coupons. Any ideas? I don't have the Target flyer for Jan 9th :(

This post is from January 2010, so unfortunately many of the coupons are no longer available. Most of the free antibiotics programs should still be in place though.
