An ounce of prevention can amount to big savings at Jewel-Osco grocery checkouts, courtesy of a value-added incentive the Supervalu subsidiary is offering to customers in the form of a 20 percent-off discount to use on a future grocery shopping trip. Officials at the Chicago-based chain are hopeful consumers will respond well to the offer, which aims to reinforce the importance of taking a simple step to avoid serious complications that can result from certain other illnesses or health conditions.
“This savings opportunity is our way of showing that it really does pay to take care of your health,” said pharmacist Jeff Bregar, manager, Integrated Clinical Services for Jewel-Osco Pharmacy, which will offer flu shots at $24.99, either by appointment or on a walk-in basis, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., weekdays and weekends.
After receiving a seasonal flu shot, customers will receive a 20 percent discount coupon when they take advantage of any one of the following services that can help jump-start or renew plans for a healthier lifestyle (some restrictions apply):
--Transfer or fill a new prescription at Jewel-Osco
--Receive another immunization, including the vaccines that can prevent pneumonia, shingles, tetanus or meningitis
--Complete a private medication review with a Jewel-Osco pharmacist
--Complete the chain’s Tools for “Living Healthy With Diabetes” education program
--Receive an in-store health screening for cholesterol, thyroid dysfunction (TSH), prostate cancer (PSA), blood glucose or A1C
“While the opportunity for immediate grocery savings can be significant to many of our customers, the long-term benefits of health maintenance and preventative care measures are far greater,” Bregar said. “Good health is priceless."”
In addition to the grocery savings offer, customers will also receive a flu, cough and cold survival kit (while supplies last). Valued at $30, the kit includes free samples, coupons and tips for staying healthy during the upcoming cold and flu season.
Jewel-Osco operates approximately 170 in-store pharmacies in Illinois, Iowa and Indiana.
