    Prescription Discounts....

    I saw this advertised on tv last night.

    https://www.goodrx.com/

    Type in the name of your prescription, and it tells you where you can get it at a discount, with coupon.

    Worth a try!

    I checked this out a few weeks ago. It was interesting to see the wide range of pricing for my steroid cream, and the savings I could receive at various locations. I was surprised that the pharmacy in my grocery store was participating, and asked if they did honor the coupon - they said yes. It was significantly cheaper than the drugstore that I had been using, even with the Good Rx coupon there. So I had my dermatologist phone in my prescription to them.

    As luck would have it, my prescription was even cheaper at that location (grocery store) WITHOUT the coupon Plus, I got a $20 store credit which was applied to my grocery shopping that I did after picking up my prescription! It pays to shop around.
    Be Happy Now.

    I've seen them on TV and wondered about them, I will defiantly check this out. One thing we always do when we see the Dr is to ask if they have any samples for the prescriptions we use, the Pharm Reps are there all the time leaving samples and cards for discounts. Several years ago when my husband wasn't working my Dr gave me 2 months of Nexium samples a real life saver. Last year we got 2 discounts for Eliquis one was for a free 30 day and the other gives us a 2 years supply for $10 a month, much cheaper than our insurance. But we needed to ask the nurse. Another thing is to ask if they have the prescription in over the counter, one of the generic acid reflux meds is now less expensive as a CVS store brand.
    Also if you have a pet and they need medicine ask the Vet if you can use human medicine, 20 years ago our dog had an allergy and the medicine from the Vet was very expensive, I told him our financial situation and if there was an alternative, he told us Benadryl was safe for our size and breed of dog. Saved us a fortune. Not all medicine for humans can be used on pets, I think it's ibuprofen that can shut down their kidneys, but I used children's aspirin for a little while when my dog was getting up in years before we went to the Rimadyl which worked beautifully.

    Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people's things alone, and be kind to one another.

    I've also noticed on FB that RetailMeNot offers discounts on medications - but I haven't checked it out myself. I have found other deals at RetailMeNot - saved me about 20-25% on the purchase of a wedding gift, and another code for free shipping, from Williams Sonoma (which can be a little pricey).
