Pictured above is a package of Loratadine, which is an allergy medication, that I purchase at Sam's Club. This is a 400 count package of Loratadine and it sells for $13.50, which is a little less than four cents per pill/day. I used to buy this at Walmart, which sells the 120 count box below for $13.42 or eleven cents per pill/day.
I save money by buying this product at Sam's club verses buying it at Walmart or even having a monthly prescription for $4.00.
Let's look at the savings:
Sam's Club: 4¢ per day equals $14.60 per year multiplied by three people equals $43.80
Walmart: 11¢ per day equals $40.15 per year multiplied by three people equals $120.45
Monthly RX: 13¢ per day equals $4.00 per year multiplied by three people equals $144.00
Therefore, buying this product at Sam's Club verses Walmart or a monthly prescription saves me $ 76.65 or $100.20 a year, which more than pays for our $40 yearly Sam's Club membership.
This is just another example of how we save money at the Frugal Workshop and why we enjoy our Sam's Club membership.
