You might be thinking that you don’t need to participate in a prescription savings club because you have insurance. I know I hadn’t thought about it much. I have one prescription that I take daily. That’s it. My insurance does cover it so it’s only $10 a month. I wasn’t exactly going broke buying my medicine.
Of course the fact that my one prescription wasn’t expensive didn’t mean I didn’t want to save what money I could. I also never know when I might need another prescription. And who doesn’t want to save as much as possible?
Walgreens is by far the most convenient pharmacy for me. I have two just over a mile from my house – one of which is open 24 hours. Since I’m just the sort of person to remember at 11:30pm that I need my prescription filled, a 24 hour pharmacy is awfully handy. So now the question is, can the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club save me money?
A $25 gift card with my transferred prescription is more than enough incentive to get me to find out. I filled out my online registration at Walgreens.com with a little basic information.
Then I added my current prescription information to get the transfer started.
After I confirmed everything I was able to print out my gift card coupon.
A few hours later I stopped by Walgreens as I was out running errands.
I had already checked out my prescription online – it looked like the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club was going to bring my cost down to $4 a month. A savings of $6. (Or $72 a year!)
But then things got even better. You see, since I had asked for a three month supply I only paid $7.50. That’s right – three months of my medication for $7.50! That’s an entire year for only $30. (A savings of $90!)
I signed up for the club right at the pharmacy counter. I received a temporary card to use right away, but my permanent card should arrive in the mail in a few weeks.
Joining the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club only costs $20 for an individual plan and $35 for a family plan. That means my membership has already payed for itself with just today’s purchase! (Well, actually, since I got a $25 gift card for transferring my prescription I’m sort of making a profit, right?)
In addition to saving on thousands of generic prescriptions, the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club helps you save on Walgreens, W Brand and Nice! products, as well as in store immunizations and Take Care Clinic services. You can find out more online and even compare the savings with the prescriptions you currently take.
