The pharmacy counter at Target has been suffering mightily since the retailer sold its pharmacy business to CVS last year. That would explain the signage you’ll see around the pharmacy with the CVS logo!
But the big change brought with it reports of inconsistent customer service, less-than-friendly staff and larger out-of-pocket costs.
So the pharmacy department has a strategy to get you back to their counter this fall: A free $5 gift card when you roll up your sleeve for a flu shot! (Available while supplies last.)
The gift card doesn’t expire and can be used at a Target location other than the one where you get the shot. Offer void in Arkansas, New Jersey and New York.
Full details of the offer are available here.
4 ways to maximize your savings at Target
Use the Target app and Target Cartwheel app
Using Target apps on your smartphone is another great ways to save. Download the apps on the iTunes store or on Google Play.
Sign up for the REDcard
Using the Target REDcard is a great way to save money. This debit (or credit) card gives you 5% back on your purchases.
Look for the ‘buy and get a gift card’ deals
Often Target will have free gift cards available with certain purchases throughout the store. You could even buy the items that warrant the gift card, and then buy other items you need on the same day, provided you break up your purchases into two separate transactions. Check the weekly ad for items that include gift cards!
Bring a reusable bag
If you bring a reusable bag, Target will take $.05 off your purchase, each time.
All these are great ways to save money at Target! And here’s a bonus: Sometimes Target will have free samples located on their website here: http://samples.target.com
