We all know the dreaded feeling of being stuck in line at the pharmacy, or in your car at the drive-through, feeling miserable and waiting for your prescription medication. Whether it’s the flu or a cold, the unpleasant feelings of illness are only magnified if you overpay for your medications.
How do I find the lowest price for cold and flu medications?
The good news is that programs like RxSaver offer free coupons on prescriptions, ready for immediate use at pharmacies closest to you. RxSaver works to find you the best price at nearby pharmacies so you don’t have to worry about overpaying.
Do I need a prescription for a cold and flu medication coupon?
Yes, you will always need a current prescription from your health care provider in order to use an RxSaver coupon. Once you search RxSaver to determine which pharmacy offers the best coupon for your medication, ask your health care provider to send the prescription directly to that pharmacy prior to picking up.
You can also transfer your prescription if you find a better coupon at a different pharmacy and the prescription has already been called in.
