Discounts at Walgreens to Help us Save

This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.

In a recent discussion in one of the groups in Facebook that I belong, monthly bills and insurances became a very hot topic among those that live in the US. Some of my friends have been complaining of their high monthly bills, their mortgages, loans, insurances and other stuff. They’ve mentioned that one of the most important things to get is the health insurance. Without it, getting sick would mean a hefty amount to be spent. They’ve also concluded that because of all these bills, they have to work hard, cut costs and save a lot, even with their medicines and prescriptions.

Reading through the long thread of discussion brought our attention to the latest offering from Walgreens. They are giving a special discount for annual membership for the Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens. Family membership is offered at $35 for the year and covers the immediate family members, the spouse, dependents 22 years old and younger and even the pets. For individuals, you can enjoy Prescription Savings Club for only $20. Aside from this, members can save on more than 8000 brand-names and generic medications. Discounts are also given on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizer and diabetic supplies. Plus, bonuses are given to purchases on Walgreens products and availing their photofinishing services.

We’ve all agreed to check out Walgreens on Facebook to know more about their current offering. We’ve also followed Walgreens on Twitter to keep us updated. Truly, living here in the land of milk and honey is not like living in a fairy tale land, like everyone thinks of. It’s all the same, we work hard to earn and to feed our families. If we don’t, then we won’t survive.

Express Scripts Program Affects Walgreens Customer

This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.

Walgreens is no longer part of Express Scripts’ pharmacy provider network as of January 1, 2012. The situation forced pharmacy patients and costumers to go elsewhere to use their in-network pharmacy benefits which is inconvenient and was unnecessary. The dispute between Walgreens and Express Scripts causing inconvenience to their pharmacy patients, employees and costumers. Express Scripts’ actions are causing disruption with no significant benefit to patients or their health plan. Patients covered by an Express Scripts plan now find themselves not only having to change their pharmacists, but many are having to drive farther to get prescriptions filled at pharmacies with less convenient hours for their hectic schedules.

Moreover, Tricare is Express Scripts client also suffer from the situation. Tricare is the health and prescription drug program for America’s military service men and women. Employers value having Walgreens as a pharmacy option for their employees that offers more 24-hour and drive-thru services than any other pharmacy in the country, but Express Scripts wants to take that choice away.

Meanwhile, Walgreens is helping to ease the burden by offering a special discount on annual membership. Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens offers discount pricing on medications for family members and savings benefits on other services. Support Walgreens and stay updated by following Walgreens on Twitter and liking Walgreens on Facebook. For every new “like” now through Feb 29, Walgreens will donate $1 to Way to Well Fund Commitment Partners. I encourage you to visit their sites. Thank you!
