Rite Aid offers free gas prize for Rx transfers
March 1st, 2010
CAMP HILL, Pa. – Now through next month, people who transfer their prescriptions to Rite Aid will get a chance to win a year's worth of free gasoline.
The drug store chain said that its popular Fill Up & Fuel Up program has returned and will run until April 24. During the sweepstakes, eight winners chosen randomly in a chainwide weekly drawing will each receive a year's worth of free gas, totaling $2,600, good at any gas station.
Patients who switch their prescriptions to Rite Aid with a qualifying coupon will receive a $25 Rite Aid gift card for each prescription, up to $50. And for each prescription transferred, they also will be entered in the drawing for a chance to win a year's worth of free gas valued at $2,600.
Rite Aid said those customers will continue to be eligible for weekly drawings through April 24 as long as their transferred prescriptions stay with the pharmacy chain. Every prescription transferred with a coupon provides another chance to win. The Fill Up & Fuel Up coupons are available in Rite Aid weekly circulars and in other advertising and promotional materials.
The sweepstakes is available in all states in which Rite Aid operates, except New York and New Jersey because of state law. The retailer said the offer is valid only on prescriptions not previously filled at or transferred from other Rite Aid locations.
