And I'm not sure what I bought last week there that triggered a Catalina coupon to spit out for a Free $25 gift card with a transferred prescription, but I was happy! And for a double play, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska is offering free generic drugs through 3/31 (other states may be participating?) So I got a generic prescription transferred from a different pharmacy, paid nothing, and got the $25 gift card free! Yippee!
Also, don't forget to check out RxSaver before filling a prescription medicine Rx to see if there are any coupons and/or rebates for that medication.
Too bad, I didn't have a coupon for my daughter's dentist appointment today – she's had $1000 in cavities filled so far this year! I know where my Economic Stimulus Payment will be going – medical and dental bills! Want to know how much you will be receiving? The IRS.gov website tells you!
