Member Discounts at Pharmacies

When you get older, you need to spend more on medicines. Some pharmacies offer discounts to senior citizens, some offer discounts for those signed up as a member. Here is the list of pharmacies that offer member discounts. Not all membership are free. With a paid membership you get deeper discounts on drugs. So it is worthy to consider to pay for $10 to $20 every year to qualify for member discounts.

A&P Supermarket
A&P Supermarket has stores throughout New York and New Jersey. When you signup their Live Better Wellness Club, which is free to everyone, seniors of 60 and older will get 10% off on your presciptions. Non-seniors also get discounted prices. See details here.
 
CVS
CVS used to offer 10% senior discount, but not any more. Now they offer Health Savings Pass discounts to everybody who signed up at a cost of $15 per year. Visit www.cvshealthpass.com for details. You pay only $11.99 for a 90-day supply of over 400 generic prescriptions, and many other benefits.
 
Duane Reade
Powered by Walgreens Prescription Savings Club. See below for more details.
 
Kmart
Like CVS, Kmart used to have a GoldK program for seniors to save on presriptions. But now they have a Pharmacy Prescription Savings Club. When you signup with a $10 annual fee, you get over 500 Kmart preferred generic medications at prices starting as low as $5 for 30 day supply ($10 for 90 day supply), and 5% to 35% savings on all other medications.
