A lot of my friends were affected by the recent parting-of-the-ways between Walgreens and Express Scripts. This meant a lot of folks, including many in the military, had to transition their prescriptions to different pharmacies. This often involves driving greater distances, longer wait times, and missing out on the convenience of a 24-hour pharmacy.
Walgreens wants to give its customers, as well as new customers, a chance to save on prescriptions as an alternative to a health-insurance prescription plan. Right now, if you join the Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens, you can take advantage of savings on more than 8,000 brand-name and generic prescriptions.
There are some additional savings that may pique your interest. You can enjoy discounts on flu shots, pet medication and nebulizers.
As a person with allergies, asthma and a dog, these savings are right up my alley.
The current cost is $35 annually for the entire family, and $20 for an individual plan. I invite you to visit Walgreens’ web site, where you can look up your prescriptions and see if and how much you will save from what you are currently paying.
You can also show your support for Walgreens and get more info by following Walgreens on Twitter and by liking Walgreens on Facebook. If you are a customer who has had to change pharmacies, share your story with Walgreens.
This company is working very hard to retain current and draw in new customers. As a customer, social media can be a very powerful outlet; we’ve had a couple of very big, newsworthy items that have proven that in the past few weeks. Show your support and make your voice heard.
