A Better Pharmacy Experience + $50 Target Giveaway

By -

Recently I came across a story of a young woman who went to a major pharmacy chain to pick up her medication. It was a prescription that was of a sensitive nature and she was already uncomfortable dealing with it. Imagine her horror when the pharmacy technician behind the counter proceeded to shout her full name across the counter not once, but several times along with the name of the medication she was trying desperately to keep private.

At that moment, she didn’t care if the store was close to home, if it had the most commercials on television, if it had been around the longest or if she had a coupon. Nothing mattered except how difficult her experience had become. All because she just wanted to pick up her medicine.

When it comes to customer service, there are a few things that need extra special care. Your medication is one of them. When dealing with your health, your privacy and your ease of treatment – don’t you want the best experience you can get?

When you think of pharmacies, the names of long standing national chains may come to mind. They’ve been around the longest so they must be the best, right? You might be surprised to know that Target Pharmacy was ranked highest in customer satisfaction among mass merchandiser pharmacies by J. D. Power.

  1. A great benefit is their PetRx. I have to get two prescriptions filled for my dog on a regular basis and have to drive way across town to get them.

  2. I was the guinea pig for our Target pharmacist to use the text alert when my script was ready! I loved that feature so I could wander around the store and not have to keep checking back.

  3. The $4 Generics would be the most helpful since our insurance doesn’t help very much in that area!

  4. Oh Kenda that would be awful! Especially with the supposed HIPPA laws…what a tragedy that somebody would have to go through this today! I didn’t even know that Target had a pharmacy. I hope they have all the debit card issues straightened out. Informational post, good!

    I think the pharmacy rewards is a great program. I definitely love rewards. I also like the $4 generics. thank you.

  6. I wish you were able to view your RX on their website like Walgreens to see how many refills you have left, etc. That’s my only gripe about Target pharmacy.

  7. I didn’t realize they offered some pet prescriptions, that could come in handy!

  8. Jamie Brigham

    The color rings on the bottles. I love that they use those for each member of the family.

  9. The text alerts would help me out alot so I don’t have to be waiting for the prescription to be filled. I can take off and know when its ready by the text.

  10. the ease of picking up prescriptions while generally shopping. I hate having to travel to multiple stores

  11. The Pharmacy Rewards is awesome. My husband gets prescriptions once a month, that means I could get all my essentials and 5% off each month!

  13. Cassandra Eastman

    The $4 generics and the text alerts would be the most helpful and convenient for me.
