Grocery Store Generic Prescriptions


meds

It’s the first of the month, which means it’s time to look for this month’s prescription coupons good at local grocery stores. Rite Aid, CVS, Target, to name a few, regularly print coupon offers redeemable for $10 – $50 gift cards at their stores when you fill or transfer a prescription at their pharmacy. Offers can be found online, in sales flyers, in stores, or in store magazines and brochures. These promotions are generally limited to one prescription offer every six months, and the drug store prices on the medications you need may be higher than at some other large chain pharmacies. But you might be surprised to find they open the door to even better savings at your local grocery stores.

Grocery store pharmacies have been known for having some of the highest prescription prices. These pharmacies are typically small, and their overhead costs can be high for stocking a large variety of medications and staffing the store with pharmacists and technicians. All of these factors have resulted in higher prescription prices for the consumer in the past. Now, however, these same pharmacies find themselves competing for consumers in an increasingly aggressive market. After Walmart and Target introduced bargain prices on generic prescriptions, most grocery store pharmacies followed suit.

Most grocery stores now offer discount generic prescription pricing, typically $4 for a 30 day supply, and $10 for a 90 day supply. Eligible generic medications vary between stores, but most grocery stores list between 300 and 500 qualifying prescription drugs.

A few grocery stores also offer gift card promotions or other store discounts when new prescriptions are transferred or filled. These offers, usually found in local weekly circulars, are fairly rare. However, almost all grocery stores, and even drug stores, all will honor the competing drug store coupons for these offers. Savvy consumers may just find that transferring their prescription from their usual drug store to a local grocery store with a generic savings program not only saves them up to $100 a month on the medicine, but earns them up to $50 credit at the grocery store for use on other purchases.

    That is quite a list, very nice! Just to note, deals that offer coupons on prescriptions or a reward for transferring a prescription are not valid in all states (NJ is one of them, I believe there are a couple of others). This should be noted on the stores’ site where the offer is listed. The deals offered by chains for generics are, though.

  2. Gail says:

    As a point of interest, generic medications contain the same active ingredients as ‘regular’ medications and you shouldn’t be nervous about taking a generic. Some people still insist on name brand medications and that will cost you a fortune. This also includes Over The Counter medications such as pain relievers, indigestions, nose sprays, etc. As a former RN this was confirmed by the pharmacist during our medication lectures in nursing school. If you need to confirm this for yourself, take out a magnifying glass (if needed) and look at the active ingredients between a name brand and a store brand item. They contain the same stuff.
