Offer valid only for a one-time transfer of prescriptions from any non-Shoppers Drug Mart to a Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacy in participating regions. Not all prescriptions are transferable by law. Excludes narcotics. Ask a Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacist for more information. Prescription must be transferred and filled on or before end of business day on July 3rd, 2011.

  3. Sally says:

    Good thing this is a Canada wide site.

  4. anon says:

    I had planned to transfer my prescription until I read others’ comments that it was not available in Ontario – thank you WFS and Lori! Not sure why its not noted in the fine print on Shoppers website!!

  5. Lori says:

    We miss out in Ontario. Just for information sake I pasted the regulations from the Ontario College of Pharmacists website. (I work in pharmacy).

    Loyalty Program Policy

    Policy on Loyalty Points Programs, effective July 1, 2004
    Bonus points, loyalty points or air miles may not be awarded on prescriptions, prescription services, or other professional services related to the practice of pharmacy in Ontario.
    Points may not be redeemed, or used as legal tender, for the purchase of prescriptions.
    Prescriptions, prescription services, or other professional pharmacy services may be paid by a major credit card that is linked to awards, loyalty points or air miles through special agreements with financial institutions, except where directly or indirectly, a special gift, bonus, or other inducement is offered for prescriptions, prescription services or other professional pharmacy services.
    This policy does not affect the College’s current position respecting pharmacies and parking charges. Pharmacies that reimburse parking charges (for a client who is having a prescription filled) are not in violation of current regulations (professional misconduct), as long as such reimbursement is not advertised.

    that is a lot of points! Now I don’t begrudge anyone all the points they can get, but please remember this when once or twice a year Ontario gets better deal on bonus points redemption, that it’s trade off. I’d still take the bonus points on prescription any day! 🙂

  7. Emily says:

    I live in Ottawa. Could I just get them transferred to a Shoppers in Gatineau? Or will it be because I live in Ontario I still can’t benefit from this deal?

  8. Sammmmmmm says:

    Bahhh! I just transfered a couple weeks ago!! :'(

  9. lynnie says:

    MEH. I realllllllllllllllly don’t like shopper’s pharmacy ….. i’ve constantly had problems, they don’t check my file and end up giving me things I’ve told them a MILLION times I’m allergic to :S Thanks Shopper’s for trying to kill me 😛

  10. candice says:

    wow this it totally awesome! I already transferred 2 of my rx to shoppers last month.. guess I will be transferring a 3rd! thanks for sharing!

  11. Nadia says:

    I was doing this until I realized how flipping expensive they are…a perscription at no frills cost 12.00 (after insurance) and SDM wanted 36..for the EXACT SAME THING. AFTER insurance.

    my no frills is new and with EVERY perscription they give me a 10.00 PC gift card…my family has gotten 60.00 in gc’s this MONTH!

  12. Karen says:

    Seems like a good deal – however Shoppers is an awful pharmacy. They don’t care about anyone but making money and screwing everyone in the process. Glad I switched AWAY from them!

  13. Mike says:

    That’s a good deal – too bad it’s not available in Ontario.

    I read a post by “Nadia” that doesn’t make sense though. The drugs are the same cost at all the pharmacies – only difference would be their dispensing fee. So a difference of $36 is absolutely wrong, whoever processed your insurance at Shoppers must have made a mistake or the person who processed your insurance at No Frills lost the company money by accident.

  14. Nadia says:

    nope, totally correct. 36 dollars after insurance at shoppers 12.00 after insurance at no frills. NO mistake. insane pricing. that is on 6 vials of cortisone for injections. 6.00 each at SDM and 2.00(actually less) each at no frills. plus a 10.00 bonus Gift Card.

    I tried to transfer a prescription today and the pharmacists knew nothing about this new promotion,here in BC..
