Let’s be honest – prescriptions are expensive. From birth control and acne medication to cold and sinus medication, the pharmacy is familiar territory for most collegiettes. Unfortunately, with an already tight student budget, doling out extra cash for a prescription can put a dent in any collegiette’s wallet. If only there was a way to get discounts on prescriptions…
Luckily, there is! Honest Discounts provides people with free prescription discounts that can save anyone up to 75% off of all FDA approved medications at every major retail pharmacy nationwide. This includes all the big-name pharmacies like CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Target, Costco, and Walmart. For the complete list of pharmacies, check out the Honest Discount’s website here.
The company started off with discount cards, printable from their website, that helped customers receive the lowest price for their prescription drugs time and time again. However, with the rising popularity of mobile apps, Honest Discounts has expanded by creating their own mobile iPhone app, launched just this month. The app allows Honest Discounts to directly communicate with their customers, creating a more personal and enjoyable experience. Just like the discount cards, the iPhone app can be used over and over again as it never expires.
The app is extremely user-friendly and is host to a variety of great features. To benefit from the Honest Discounts mobile app all you need to do is download the app to your iPhone and show the mobile card to the pharmacy for each prescription that you need. This allows you to easily compare savings, guaranteeing you the lowest price whether it is with Honest Discounts or with your insurance company. The app also allows user to search any medication, which will then provide the users with a list of every pharmacy in the area that stocks the medication as well as the respective price of the prescription at each pharmacy. This is extremely helpful as some medications are consistently more expensive at certain pharmacies. For example, Lipitor 15 is always more expensive at Rite Aid.
Why should collegiettes download the Honest Discounts app? Besides the ease and convenience, the savings are phenomenal, especially for young women. Founder, Chris Jacobs, explains, “A big portion of our user base is young women who are purchasing birth control. Co-pays for brand name, birth control medications can be anywhere from $80-$100. Our free app can help young women save!” Honest Discounts is also great for anyone who doesn’t have insurance as well as people who’s insurance company may not cover the medication they need.
Start saving on your prescriptions today by downloading the Honest Discount’s iPhone app. Not only will your wallet be happier, but you also might just have some extra spending money - something that collegiettes should never take for granted. If you don’t have an iPhone, no worries! The android app will be coming out in a couple months, so hang tight and download the discount cards at www.honestdiscounts.com.
