    Raesmom, congrats on the Swagbucks deal!

    RFB, glad you got the parm :)

    Sandra, great job on the RX savings! Was it DiscountRX that you got the price comparisons from? With the money we spend in our house on RX meds, every bit we can save is a big help.

    Thank You for the pharmacy suggestion !!

    I get my "non-insurance covered" meds at WalMart every month- some are cheap ($3) some are not ($50 )
    ( My precription plan allows only 30 days at brick & mortar pharmacies . 90 days thru mail order ).

    Check with your employers to see if there is a discount program -

    we are saving 20% per month on our cell phone bill

    Here is a prescription deal send via e-mail to me from Sandra:

    "I took my written prescriptions to Walmart to get a "Prescription Price Quote" which totaled $922.56. Most were for a 90-day supply. I printed coupons from DiscountRX and went back. Walmart accepted the coupons, and will keep the coupon info on file so I do not have to present it again. At the time, I only needed refills for two of the drugs. One was listed at $105.72. With the coupon, I paid $16.33. Another one will be $33.48 for 90-days compared to $118.62.

    I really like the individual pricing for different pharmacies. It allows me to immediately see which has the best price. The really big savings reduced Walmart's price of $306.62 to $132.69 at Rite Aid. Anyone who has prescriptions should check this website out. You may be paying $10 to $20 co-pays for drugs that would cost less using the coupons."

    Great job on the Swagbucks, raesmom! I have bought items from Amazon, FTD and Dell in the last few weeks through Swagbucks and will earn enough for a gift card when the swag bucks are credited. Love that online shopping option!
