A Back Pain of Different Kind

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

My Sweetie isn’t a nurse. I wish she was. But whenever I feel pain her touch is what I only need and my back pain will be gone in no time.  Well a little help from a little pill is a big plus of course. That is because no matter how healing her hands are, I do need some pain pills so to speak.

But just recently my Sweetie told me that Walgreens and Express Scripts contract expire last December 31, 2011. Walgreens and Tricare’s agreement concession to remain under the Express Scripts’ network finally ended.   This news has a great impact not only on my back pain but on my pocket as well as the military families and friends in our neighborhood. Express Scripts’ teaming up with our trusted pharmacy is a big plus but now that it ended, it means that we need to drive 30 miles in town to get our prescription instead of driving down the street even in the middle of the night because it’s open 24-hrs. And this situation will surely add more pain on my back, both literally and figuratively speaking.

Walgreen has been our trusted pharmacy for years and since it’s within our neighborhood it’s kinda a homey place to get our medication and prescription refills from people we know personally. Yes, we are on first-name basis with the pharmacists at our neighborhood Walgreens so ordering prescription refills is a no brainer.

Well despite of all the events that happened, Walgreens is doing everything to help ease the burden of its customers. They are offering a special discount on annual membership for its Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens.  This club is awesome because individuals may join for only $5 and receive discount prices on their prescriptions and the benefits that one can get from this, like:
Savings on more than 8,000 brand-name and all generic medications
Discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers and diabetic supplies
Bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photofinishing services
… are more than enough to ensure its members of a better life. Good thing we are club members. Imagine for just $10 a year, our family membership covers everyone in my immediate family. Yes, that includes my Sweetie of course and my youngest son and yes, his new cat Claire which we gave him as our Christmas present.

In this tough economy where health insurance and price of medicine are basic commodities we need to work together to help each other live a better healthy lives. And we can start by supporting Walgreens and stay updated by liking Walgreens on Facebook and following Walgreens on Twitter.  We already did, it’s your turn now.
