Although I’d heard about the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club I never really paid much attention to it because our health insurance plan does cover prescriptions, however our policy doesn’t cover everything and has pretty high co-pays so I decided to check it out. My family of seven has four prescriptions that we fill monthly, one that is filled quarterly or as needed, and of course the occasional Rx for antibiotics or drops for ear infections and the like. Those expenses add up rather quickly, especially when we also have to pay for the health insurance policy.
Any savings at all would be terrific, but as it turns out, the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club can actually save you quite a bit of money, depending on your needs and whether or not you have insurance. The very best part is that your savings are guaranteed – if you don’t save at least the cost of your prescription card membership fee in one year, Walgreens will give you back the difference!
Those without insurance and people who use generic medications will likely benefit the most from a club membership because of the fabulous tier pricing they provide on over 700 value priced generics. Prices are a low $5/30-day supply for tier 1, $10/30-day supply for tier 2, and $15/30-day supply for tier 3. You can even get 90-day supply prescriptions for as low as $10! Check the value priced medication list here to see what tier your prescriptions are.
We take generics whenever possible, but unfortunately the four monthly prescriptions we need aren’t available as generics, and our deductible on them is pretty high so I made a list and asked the pharmacist about them. With the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club you can also get discounts on name brand drugs and those discounts vary based on the drug and it’s list price so the pharmacist was only too happy to check on the prices for me.
To sign up for the savings club it costs $20 per year for an individual or $35 per year for a family, which is a fabulous deal for my family of seven. On top of your prescription drug savings you’ll also get discounts throughout the store like 10% on Walgreens brand products, 10% on in store photofinishing, 5-20% on immunizations, and you’ll even get discounts on your pet medications. I’m thrilled to have enrolled at the store during my shopping trip today and only wish that I had learned about the program earlier.
