Purchasing prescriptions can be a source of stress at times in some families. It certainly was for my family about four years ago when his doctor was attempting to mask my husband’s stomach problems with one new medication after another without truly attempting to find the root cause. The amount of medications he was prescribed over the course of a few months was insane. Recently, I carried two plastic bags full of pill bottles to our local police station in order to turn them in to be destroyed and thrown away (instead of simply throwing them in our own trash bag). Not only was I in shock that these meds were prescribed to him, but I couldn’t help thinking about the amount of money that was spent on them.
The Walgreens Prescription Savings Club would have been very useful for us years ago. Right now they are offering a discount on their annual membership. For only $10.00 per year, your entire immediate family is covered under this membership, including spouses, dependents 22 years old and younger, and even pets. Individuals may join for just $5.00.
The Prescription Savings Club also has other benefits. They have savings for over 8,000 brand-name and generic medications. People can receive discounts on pet medications, flu shots (which can be expensive if your insurance doesn’t cover them), diabetic supplies, and supplies for asthmatics. In addition to these great perks, you can also receive discounts when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photo services.
