Like many people, I have to take prescription drugs every single day. With the high cost of prescription drugs, it’s important to save money where we can. This article shares one way to find the best prices on your prescription drugs using RxSaver by RetailMeNot.
I Take Prescription Drugs Every Day
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that I was diagnosed and treated for thyroid cancer back in 2014. Boy, that was a shock. Within a few weeks of my diagnosis, I went in for surgery to have my thyroid gland and the cancer removed.
Of course, I was grateful that the surgery was successful and I have been cancer-free since then, but the removal of my thyroid gland means that I have to take prescription thyroid replacement hormone every day for the rest of my life. And, because I had a lot of trouble finding the right balance of thyroid hormone, I actually take two different thyroid drugs, and one of them I take three times a day.
On top of my daily thyroid hormones, I also take a migraine drug a few times a month. The average American takes at least one prescription and most of us take more than one. So, I think you’ll agree with me that it’s important to save money on prescription drugs whenever we can.
Saving Money on Prescriptions
For the first few years, I filled my prescriptions at my local drugstore just because that’s where I’ve always gone. Then, I learned about RxSaver by RetailMeNot, a free online tool and app that compares costs at local pharmacies and finds the best price available, whether you have insurance or not. I had no idea that pharmacy prices for the exact same drug can vary widely by location, and it actually pays to shop around. Not only that, depending on your insurance coverage, it sometimes makes more sense to pay cash than go through insurance for prescription drugs.
The bottom line is that knowledge is power when it comes to paying for prescription drugs. That’s why I’m excited to talk about RxSaver by RetailMeNot. RxSaver is both an app and a website that allows you to enter your prescription drug name and zip code to find the best pricing at pharmacies in your local area. It’s so easy to use and can lead to big savings on monthly drug costs.
How to Use RxSaver by RetailMeNot
Here’s how I use RxSaver. I downloaded the app and bookmarked the website on my computer. Then, when it’s time to refill my prescriptions each month, I enter the drug name along with my zip code. In seconds, the app shows the price for that drug at the pharmacies in my local area.
