Best Credit Cards For Drugstores/Pharmacy Purchases

Pharmacy or drugstore purchases are considerable expenses for many people. Besides medicine and health products, pharmacies nowadays carry a wide variety of items from personal care, to drinks, food, stationary and more. They often carry great selections of third party gift cards and Visa, MasterCard and Amex prepaid gift cards. So it makes sense to maximize these purchases through credit card rewards.
