Enjoy A Better Pharmacy Experience At Target! @Target #TargetSponsored #Giveaway #Ad

*I participated in a sponsored campaign on behalf of Social Chorus for Target.  All opinions are 100% mine.

    As many of you know, I am a six year Leukemia Survivor and I have had to learn very quickly how to advocate for myself when it comes to my medical care and treatment.  Since I depend on life-saving medications for my survival, it is very important that I have a reliable and affordable pharmacy to fill all of my prescriptions.  Aside from that, I also look for great customer service and convenience since I am a busy Working Mom who juggles many roles on a regular basis.

    When it comes to having an overall better pharmacy experience, Target offers some great features that I personally look for when choosing a pharmacy.  I have some personal favorites that fit into my lifestyle and make life much easier for me on a daily basis.  I’m not very good at keeping track of my pharmacy rewards.  My husband jokingly refers to the fact that I’ve cost him millions in lost rewards over the years!

    Unlike other complicated pharmacy rewards programs, Target Pharmacy Rewards tracks your expenses and after only 5 prescription fills, and even vaccinations, you will receive 5% off a whole day of shopping (in-store and online) in addition to Target’s already low prices.  I really like the idea of using my rewards and getting a discount on my overall shopping instead of being told how I can use them.

    Their $4 generics really fit our budget around here too.  We are all on maintenance medications for asthma and all of our combined prescriptions can get quite pricey when you add up all their co-payments.  Being able to save that much money on the generic equivalents of our medicines lets us use our money on other things that the family needs.

    These benefits really make my life easier as a patient and a consumer.  Since I’m a very busy mom, being able to transfer to Target Pharmacy without a hassle is very convenient.  In case all of the reasons that I mentioned above are not enough to convince you to head over to Target Pharmacy for all your prescription needs, you should probably know that they were also ranked highest in customer satisfaction among mass merchandiser pharmacies by J.D. Power.

    Along with being recognized for its excellent customer service and features, Target Pharmacy makes lives easier for people like me who have enough to worry about with taking care of their health.  It’s nice to know that when it comes to taking great care of me, Target Pharmacy has me covered!

Let’s Discuss:  What are some of the benefits that you look for in your pharmacy experience?

  3. I never even think of Target for prescriptions– I guess I should rethink that.

    You know, I never even thought about Target for my prescriptions before, but it sounds like maybe I need to switch!

  10. amypugmire says

    I like good customer service, great hours and I hate long lines. I like the service team to go above and beyond to help me if I have any questions.

  11. Julie Wood says

    What I can not stand with a pharmacy is making me wait a long time in line to pick up medication. Also rude pharmacy employees are not good. But I mostly look for low prices becasue I have to pay for some of my medications, and having low priced generics like Target does saves me so much money.

  12. Amy Desrosiers says

    I love the Target Pharmacy! It is so clean and they are always friendly!

  13. I like when pharmacies offer reminders when it’s time to refill, quick refilling, a prescription awards program, and very importantly, an easy and time-efficient communication process between the physician prescriber and getting the prescription filled!

  22. Sandy VanHoey says

    I look for them to be convenient, friendly and open 24hrs because my family seems to get sick in the middle of the night.

  25. The inexpensive generics and store rewards are always great benefits that I look for in my pharmacy experience.

  26. I enjoy a friendly pharmacist that knows me by name and always makes me feel comfortable asking questions. When it came time to pick a health insurance company I called him and asked his opinion because he knew best which would be best for my family!

  29. AmandaSakovitz says

    I look for quick refills and good locations.

  30. amanda ripsam says

    I used to use Target generic 4 dollar prescriptions until we moved. I use Wallgreens only because it’s closer to me. 5% is a great way to get people to try out the 4 dollar generics. I love Target we do go to Target but when you need meds at midnight after a er trip you stick with a 24 hour pharmacy.

  31. I look for prices when choosing a pharmacy.

  32. I like the way Target’s rewards system is set up! As many prescriptions as we have, that would be handy for us.

  39. Jennifer Williams says

    My favorite thing about my old pharmacy was when I took a prescription in for my son and they told me that it would conflict with a medication he was on. The doctor did not catch it and I had no idea. I loved knowing they were looking out for our well being. We just moved and I hope to find another pharmacy like the one we had – I will definiltey check out Target.

  40. We always end up buying things as we wait for our perscription. I love Target for everything!

  44. Richard Morris says

    I haven’t used it but i shop there a lot & would love to place my prescription while i shop.

  45. Amanda Her says

    Target is one of my favorite stores, but I’ve never used their pharmacy. Probably because I prefer a 24-hour pharmacy, but you can’t beat the service at Target!

  46. tannawings says

    I look for a pharmacy where you can do several things at once. I have gotten my flu shot at Target and find it very convenient.

  54. Kim Henrichs says

    I use Target pharmacy and I love it. They are conveniently located, their instructions are super easy, the bottles are great, and the people who work in mine are very friendly and helpful. I let them do my flu shot this year as well.

  55. Some benefits I look forward to when using the pharmacy is knowing when the meds are ready. I don’t like to be told a time and be back at that time and it is still not done. The text alerts are great.

  62. Courtney Bella says

    i look for affordable quick service… and reliable

  63. Tracy Iglesias says

    I have to check first and foremost that they have my meds. The local small pharmacy nearest my home does NOT carry some of my meds so I have to go to Rite Aid to get those items. They consistently have it and usually always have it ready when promised. which is important to me.I’m glad Rite Aid is always consistent with my meds but sometimes it does make me feel sad for the smaller pharmacy because we are two generations with the same pharmacist and he really knows everyone in the family and is always willing to go the extra mile for us. I wish I could meld both of them together sometimes and make one big store. With the right meds that the bigger one has and the personalized service and family vibe that the smaller one has! I have never tried Target’s Pharmacy but would like to I walk over there a lot anyways this way I could kill off two birds with one stone!
