Great savings! We have a Costco membership. My daughter got a fantastic deal on a Groupon for Costco. You do need to know your prices to save at warehouse stores.Have a great week Patti
Thanks, Patti, I've not been to Costco, but have always wondered about it. There is one here in Fort Oglethorpe, maybe someday we will get a free pass to check it out. :)
You are allowed to go into Costco without a membership if it is for the pharmacy, I know. Check it out. Carry a prescription bottle with you. You may be surprised to find a hefty saving on a prescription or two. It is not deceptive. No need for membership to get scripts at Sam's either.
Thank you, Anna. I did not know that about Sam's Club and Costco. Such good information to have. Their (Sam's Club) savings on over the counter meds is terrific.
No OTC drugs may be bought without a membership at Sam's or Costco; however, you could check OTC pharmacy prices and perhaps other store prices. I have a couple of scripts to price-check at Costco, but for me, the price decrease would need to be a hefty decrease, which I have had in the past. Check Google for Sam's and Costco current pharmacy. In TN, I am fairly certain that pharmacy scripts are without membership. Will check myself.
No membership required for scripts from Costco or Sam's in TN. Checked Google. Have reported several times, that more than 10 years ago, a script from Costco cost $500 more at Costco than Sam's for a 90-day supply. It pays to check and not assume. My PCP told me that Costco was cheapest pharmacy in metro. I corrected him about the $500+ script at Costco.
