Jewel-Osco Launches ‘Prescription Plus’ Discount Program
MELROSE PARK, Ill., July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Jewel-Osco this week launched Prescription Plus, a new pharmacy loyalty program which will reward frequent pharmacy customers with special discounts on future grocery purchases.
Under the new program, customers will receive a 10 percent discount coupon after every five prescriptions filled at the pharmacy when using their Jewel-Osco Preferred Card. New, transferred, and refilled medication orders count toward earning the valuable discount which can be redeemed at the grocery checkout. Some restrictions apply.
"The Prescription Plus program is Jewel-Osco Pharmacy's way of responding to the tough economic challenges many of our customers face today," said Tom Rousonelos, vice president of Osco pharmacy operations. "Jewel-Osco aims to offer the most value-added pharmacy experience available."
Because Prescription Plus discounts apply to the customer's future grocery purchases, the program stands to deliver more savings to consumers than competing discount drug programs.
The program is an extension of Jewel-Osco's commitment to providing pharmacy and food solutions that help customers stay healthy and manage any health conditions they may have. Additionally, it builds upon Jewel-Osco Pharmacy's proven record of providing outstanding patient care services. In addition to traditional prescription orders, immunizations, diabetes care service appointments and wellness screenings in most cases can also count toward Prescription Plus discounts.
All 184 Jewel-Osco locations in Illinois, Indiana and Iowa will participate in the Prescription Plus program. Locations without in-store pharmacies will also honor the 10 percent discount.
