Be on the lookout for these at your local Walgreens; I found stacks of them at the registers, in the ad/newspaper stand, and by the pharmacy at my Walgreens a few weeks ago.

Inside the pamphlet is a $25 Walgreens Prescription Transfer check that expires 02/28/10. If you have prescriptions that you fill on a regular basis, this is a great way to get paid for transferring your prescription to Walgreens.

Unlike a prescription transfer gift card, you have to use the entire amount of the check in one transaction when you redeem the check; you can't use the check to pay for your prescription. And you will not get any change back on the check (say your total is $24; you will not get $1.00 in change back when you redeem the check) so be sure to max out your purchase to $25.

You can use the check, however, to buy loads of this week's RR deals and you can use MFR coupons and Walgreens coupons as well to bring the total of your transaction down to $25. The same basic rule of couponing at Walgreens applies - your total number of MFR coupons must be equal to or greater than your total number of items purchased.

I was thrilled to see all the deals at Walgreens this week (both the RR deals and the nearly free deals); I had to refill an Rx for my hubs and had the $25 prescription transfer check to use toward the dealios. I'll detail my crazy savings in a separate post. ;-)
