Looking for help finding prescription drug coupons online? There are no shortage of places to find prescription drug coupons online. A few quick searches for keywords such as “internet drug coupons” or “pharmacy discounts online” will yield a mind-boggling array of choices but usually leaves the average person scratching their head and trying to differentiate from shady online pharmacies and fly-by-night marketers trying to profit from affiliate links to various less-than-reputable websites. Here are some tips to help you navigate this maze and find reputable companies that offer real savings on prescription medications at your local pharmacy.
First, be wary of many of the “internet drug coupon” sites. For the most part, these sites simply do two things:
- Offer links to manufacturers’ websites for free coupons that they already offer directly to consumers. Now, these are very REAL ways to save and if you have a drug to fill a prescription for, especially a brand-name drug, I highly suggest going immediately to the manufacturer’s website and inquiring directly for their coupons, if available. Not all will offer coupons, but many do. If you have a low annual income, there’s a good chance you qualify.
- Advertise drug-specific coupons that are really just a prescription discount card copied and branded with that drug’s name. This is a marketing tactic and is misleading. Prescription Discount Cards, like the one offered by Discount Drug Network, are a great way to save on prescription drugs at the pharmacy, but you only need ONE card and by using these “drug-specific” printable cards, you’re missing out on the best value offered by Prescription Discount Card companies like Discount Drug Network… the ability to search online or call and get help comparing prices at all of your local pharmacies so that you save the most money!
Second, remember that the Prescription Discount Card is your key to being able to make your local pharmacies compete for your business (along with everyone else who has Discount Drug Network’s Prescription Discount Card – isn’t group purchasing power a beautiful thing?).
