Pharmacies are constantly competing for new business and often have coupons offering a $10 or $25 store gift card for filling new prescriptions or transferring a prescription to their pharmacy. I have one monthly prescription, that I must have re-prescribed on a monthly basis by my doctor. Even if I go to the same pharmacy, it is considered a new prescription and will qualify for the gift card promotion. For my other prescriptions that don't require a monthly renewal, I can easily transfer them between local pharmacies and earn gift cards each time I need a refill. Since my prescriptions are generics, the gift cards often out-value the cost of the actual prescription resulting in a profit from filling the prescription and essentially "free money" to spend at a specific store.
