I wanted to let you guys know about two more medical discounts I found last weekend. The first…
My doctor charges me $80 per 90 count box, so if I want 6 months of lenses it would usually be around $320. This time I used Vision Direct, which is a super low-cost contact lens site. I went through Ebates, which had 16% cash back at Vision Direct (it was a daily double). They have a new customer coupon for 25% off your total order. My final cost after cash back was $193, which is an amazing 40% off retail price. After I mail in my acuvue rebates, it will be nearly 50% off retail. Take that, eye doctor.
Next, a new method for Prescription Medication savings.
For those of you who don’t know, I have a highly acidic esophagus, which requires a very expensive medication – like $47 per month after insurance. It’s crazy. Anyway, I was talking to my friend (whose dad is a pharmacist) to see what my other options were, and I pulled up the medication website on my phone. These websites have coupons, people. I had no idea. This one covers the out of pocket cost up to $55. I just filled the prescription today and it cost me $0. And according to the coupon, all of my refills will be free as well. All because I checked out the drug manufacturer’s website. I pulled up the websites for some of my other prescriptions and found 2 more coupons.
Now combine that with the prescription transfer methods I use on a regular basis and we are potentially making a profit of $60 and getting free medication. How fantastic is that?
So I saved $174 this weekend just by using the internet. That’s a pair of shoes!
