I have been a Walgreens Pharmacy customer for more than a decade now. I am very contented with the service and the convenience they give me. I live about half of a mile from Walgreens and what I like the most is dropping off and picking up my prescription without leaving my car especially when it is raining or snowing. When all the supermarkets are packed especially during the holidays, Walgreens is always a savior for everything; from medicines, gift items, food, greeting cards, health and beauty products, you name it, they have them. Thank you Walgreens.
I am expressing this because I feel bad for those customers who get affected by the discontinuation of Walgreens and Express Scripts contract. Express Script is used to be one of Walgreens pharmacy provider until January 1, 2012 when both parties failed to renew the contract (read the press release). I am sure a lot of Walgreens customers do not want to hear this because it means inconvenience of changing your favorite pharmacy to maybe one that is farther than where you live with less store hours and no drive thru. But here is what Walgreens is offering their valued customers to minimize the disruption brought by these changes. They are giving discounts on Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens this January for only $5 for individual membership and $10 for a family membership. Once you become a member, you will receive savings on more than 8,000 brand name and all generic medications. Walgreens have more than 400 generic medicines with a three month supply for less than a $1 a week.
Please have time to check your prescription insurance plan in order not to miss the big savings Walgreens is offering to its valued customers. It is only a special January promotion. Regular membership for it Prescription Savings Club is $20 for individual and $35 for a family. Also, do not forget to follow Walgreens on Twitter or like Walgreens on Facebook.
