No one likes to think about it, but even on the best planned trips, sick happens. We know from firsthand experience: the migraine that turned into an incapacitating two days in bed in Bangkok for Paris. The sliced finger that sent John running to purchase first aid supplies in Florida. The spoiled cheesecake that sent both of us running to the store in California.
Live and learn. Now we stock up on first aid supplies and over the counter medications before our trips…and those preparations also mean refilling our prescriptions at our home pharmacy. We have several Walgreens pharmacies in our area (two between us and our local post office alone) so we always make at least one run there before we hit the road.
One special aspect of these handy pharmacies we really like is the Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens. The cost is low: just $35 a year for the whole family. That membership includes your immediate family (including dependents age 22 and under) and it even includes your pets, a major bonus for families like ours with multiple dogs and cats. Individual memberships are also available for $20. The club means you’ll save on 8,000 brand-name and all generic medications, including prescriptions for your pets that can be filled in Walgreens.
Besides receiving discount prices on your prescriptions with the membership, there’s another feature that we really love as travelers: bonuses when you buy Walgreens photofinishing services! We’ve used Walgreens photofinishing services for everything from our passport photos to prints to even a poster for a book signing we did once!
