Now, I know you're wondering why I'm writing about a pharmacy on a tech blog, but bear with me here.
Walgreens is offering a special discount on their Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens until January 31, 2012. For only $10 a year, you can receive discounts on prescriptions for your immediate family members. Who does that include? You, a spouse, any dependents 22 years old and younger and your pets. Really! Your pets are included in your family membership. Individual plans are also available for $5 a year.
Membership includes savings on your all your generic medications and more than 8,000 brand-name medicines. You'll get discounted flu shots, nebulizers and diabetic supplies too. And don't forget that you earn bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photo-finishing services.
Now here is where the tech comes in. You can open a free online Walgreens.com account that allows you to review your Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens transactions, set up auto-refills and arrange to pick up your prescriptions or have them shipped for free. You can store or print photos and do online shopping all from the same site.
