Walgreens Prescription Savings Club

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

As of January 1st of this year, Walgreens no longer is able to accept Express Scripts programs. If you are not familiar with the Express Scripts program you can check out their website here. Walgreens and Express Script


Basically it is Anthem Blue Cross and BlueShield’s prescription program. All of Anthem Blue Cross and BlueShield’s customers are affected by this change in policy.

Walgreens worked for months trying to negotiate with the Express Scripts program to be able to keep the program. Unfortunately, the negations did not go well and hundreds of Walgreens' customers now have to find a new pharmacy.

This affected my mother and father in law as they have Express Script. My mother in law is very upset that she no longer has the convenience of going to her drive up pharmacy that is right around the corner from her house. She now has to drive farther, and they do not have a drive through so she has to go in. This month when she went in to get her eye drops, her prescription was not ready and she had to wait. This had never happened before when she was purchasing her prescriptions at Walgreens. So you can imagine how upset she is by the changes.

So what can a customer do?

Walgreens is now offering a Prescription Savings Club for all their customers. For just $10 for families or $5 for an individual Walgreens customers can enroll in the savings plan. This plan includes the following benefits.

  1. Discount prices on your prescriptions.
  2. Savings on more than 8,000 brand name medications and all generic medications.
  3. Discount on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers, and diabetic supplies
  4. Earn bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand name products and photofinishing products.
