I am a huge fan of Target. My wife made me a huge fan of Target. I’m so much of a fan, that I changed my RX there. Well, that was to give my wife and I an excuse to go to Target twice a month to pick up our prescriptions. But now, they did me wrong. I’ve had plenty of bad encounters with CVS / Caremark pharmacies in the past.
This really upsets me that Target sold the business to them. Target also provided 5% discount on an entire days worth of shopping for filling 5 prescriptions, so between my wife and I we fill 5 a month. So that meant that once a month we would do our large grocery shopping at Target and take an additional 5% off. Sure, that’s only $5, but every penny counts.
Looks like I will be switching to Walgreens or Publix pharmacy now.
Anybody know if Walgreens has a rewards program for switching prescriptions to them?
