Many Pharmacies have a way to save extra on your prescriptions.  This is a highlight of the program at Walgreens.   We do not have prescription insurance coverage and actually are a member of their club.

First it costs $20 for an individual or $35 for a family for 1 year.
The Benefits

  • The Prescriptions Savings Club (PSC) is a program put together to help those without prescription insurance and for drugs not covered through your insurances.  There are over 5000 medications covered and some are on a special generic list making it $12 for a 3 month supply.  Check out the  list of generic medications here.  For our family, the one prescription that we get a month I would pay $34 without any savings program, with this we save $90 every 3 months!  Check out their savings tool to see what your prescriptions would cost and to make sure they are covered.
  • As a PSC member you also save 10% off all Walgreens Brand products and 10% off your entire photo order.
  • The savings also covers diabetic supplies and insulin as well at Pet Medications!

Getting Started

If you decide that you want to get the extra savings in store and on prescriptions then you sign up online, head to a store or call a store to get signed up.

Remember the very coupon friendly store in Batesburg SC, from a few weeks ago?  They are in the middle of a district contest and would love to have you call them if you are interested.  They will process it over the phone and mail out the card.  You can use it at any store in the country, it would just help them out to be processed locally.   Call  803-532-2586.

      From a professional in the industry… be VERY careful when choosing your pharmacy. Here is a link to where we called around to compare the cost of several major drugs and there generarics.

      Just remember, you don't get 10% off at the time of purchase. How it works is 10% of all of the W items you purchased (including photo purchases) goes on to your PSC card. At your next purchase you swipe your card and the 10% savings you previously earned on your card is applied to this transaction. It is just an extra added benefit when enrolling in the PSC.

      You should not pay for this discount prescription program. You can use the same type of program at Bi-lo for FREE. Plus the 90 day supply at Bi-lo is only $10 instead of $12. The list of generics is the same so why pay for this program. I know that Walmart also has the same program with $4 and $10 prescriptions. I think that their program is FREE also.

      • Cathy

        Walmart does have the same type program, however we switched to Walgreen's because Walmart's service was so bad ( requesting a 3 month supply and not getting it, shorting us pills and it taking more than 4 hours to fill prescriptions, etc.). We would have to make multiple trips to Walmart just to get the prescription. It was worth the little bit of extra money to switch to Walgreen's program.

      • I agree with the generics but the main highlight here is the 5000 other reduced medications that aren't generics (that's what got us involved).

    • Lucy

      Personally, I'd never pay a store for the “privilege” of getting a reduced price in prescriptions. If the store wants my pharmacy business, they'll get it without making me pay a yearly premium.

      Costco is often the cheapest place to fill your prescriptions. You do not need to be a Costco member to use the Costco pharmacy.

      If you don't want to use Costco, see if the pharmacy you use will match Costco's price. And, of course, be sure to use your $/$$ coupons or competitor's coupons for new or transferred prescriptions.

      I have the PSC too and sometimes my PSC price for a drug is even better than the insurance price. Also I have to say you get what you pay for. Those free programs are usually for drugs that are already cheap generics anyway and sometimes they are not even what a lot of people take, and as another poster commented I can save money on brand drugs too if the one I need doesn't have a generic. and 10% off makes all the deals on here that much sweeter!!

      I want to Thank You for this. Just the other day I found out that my RX went up by $30. I was shocked. I was at Rite Aid, then Walgreens, then Target (Target was $10 cheaper), but imagine only paying $12 for an RX once a month and finding out it went up to $43/mo ($33/mo at Target). Luckily, I didn't buy the RX and read this post and did my homework. My drug that my husband and I both use (so we actually buy this twice a month) was only on the Walgreens list and I signed up for the family program today for $35 and saw my doctor for new RX's for both of us (Dr. visit $45), but a 90 day supply of our drug with this program is only $10.99 each, so that's $43.96 a year for each of us. So if you add it all up $43.96 x 2 + $35 program fee and $45 dr. visit, it's only going to cost us $167.92 for a whole year. We were already paying $153.48 a year for EACH of us so a total of $306.96, so It's almost like one of us is getting ours free (well $139.04 difference)!
      But now that the cost of the medicine has gone up, it's really saving us $635!!!!!
      Thank you so much!!!!!

      Kmart Pharmacies have a similar prescription savings club that only costs $10 for the whole family to join–and you get a $10 gift card to the store for joining (this technically makes it free!) You would be surprised at the great prescription prices Kmart has to offer. And, if their price isn't as good as a competitors, all you have to do is ask them to match the competitor. As long as they are within the area and they can call and confirm, they will match! Usually waits aren't as long as other pharmacies either.
