If you live in the United States, there’s a good chance you’re familiar with Walgreens: after all, it’s the largest drugstore in the country – with more than 250,000 employees distributed across over 8,000 locations. But even if you’re a regular customer of Walgreens, maybe you aren’t aware of the major expansion of this brand towards the on-line markets.
In that case, you may want to subscribe to the official Walgreens on Twitter and Walgreens on Facebook, to stay up to date on the latest promotions and deals. I have just joined in, and it looks as though there’s already some interesting stuff going on. Keep reading this article for the full scoop!
Products and Services Available at Walgreens
For anyone who’s not quite familiar with this company, Walgreens currently operates on various fronts asides from pharmacy. Asides from health and wellness services, you also get access to useful services including photo retouching and printing. If you want to get some photos printed, you can upload your files over the Internet and have the photo prints and / or posters sent to you by mail… or you can request a pick-up at a store of your choice, from the thousands of Walgreens spread throughout the United States.
You can also get all the products you’re used to see in a regular drugstore, including vitamin supplements, beauty products, diapers, contraceptives and contact lenses. Additionally, you also get access to several household items such as batteries, pantry items and selected appliances, toys and baby gear, and thousands of other products. In the past few years, the company has obviously taken extensive action to make a name for themselves as the kings of convenience stores.
Special promotions available at the moment
One of the most striking deals available now at the Walgreens official website is the Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens. With over 2 million registered users, this is a great alternative for anyone whose drug coverage is not broad enough. This is how it works:
You can get an individual membership for $5 / year, or a family membership for $10/ year (covers everyone in your immediate family: including your spouse, any dependents up to 22 years old, and even your pets). After subscribing, you will get access to exclusive savings on brand name and generic medications – from a selection of thousands and thousands of products.
This includes many kinds of prescription medicines, including pet medicines, nebulizers and supplies for diabetics: all in all, you’ll get access to over 8,000 brand names and generic medications at discounted pricing. Also, this is a risk free membership; meaning that you will be refunded the difference between the cost of subscribing and the actual money you managed to save through your subscription.
Refill Your Prescriptions Easily and Conveniently
One of the most useful features available from the Walgreens official website is arguably the “Refill Prescription”. It allows you to set up automatic refills either from your prescription number or prescription history. They offer free shipping on all refills, and there’s an option to receive text messages in your phone when new prescriptions are ready for shipping.
If you have a smartphone or tablet (whether from Apple or Android), you even get a free app that makes the process more convenient, thanks to the included barcode scanner; just point the camera in your device to the prescription bar code, and the app will handle the rest! That’s how we roll in the future present, thank you very much!
