It wasn't hidden, they did a poor job of hiding it. Has to be one of the worst commercials of 2009

I know somebody who used to work at a grocery store, they actually cashed paychecks for free. I guess I never really thought about it before, but I guess banks either charge, or won't cash your check if you do not have an account. I guess they are providing a service, and trying to get you in the store to spend that money... I see no harm in it.

Don't look at it as free, the grocery store were making money once the cash was in your hand. So it wasn't like they were doing you a favor.

There is no catch. If your medicine is on the list it is 4.00 for a 30 day supply, I don't have health insurance so I changed a med to one that was on the list so I could pay only 4.00.
