Get A Flu Shot, Get A Giant Grocery Or Drug Coupon

Retail pharmacies really, really want customers to get their flu shots there this year. How badly? They’re offering giant coupons to customers who get their shots there, ranging from 10% at grocer Safeway to 20% at pharmacy chain CVS.

The shot might seem to be “free” if your health insurance covers the cost in full, but if you’re paying out of pocket, you’ll need to spend hundreds of dollars on groceries or pharmacy goodies in order for the deal to be worthwhile.

Bad news for residents of New Jersey, though: the 10% off coupon offer at Safeway isn’t valid there. CVS customers in Arkansas, New Jersey, and New York don’t get to enjoy the coupon fun, either.
