Switch it Up and Save

February 02, 2010 By: Tylar Masters Category: Medtipster, Prescription Savings

The idea of saving money is the sole reason why people go to different stores for different items, if they know ahead of time they can spend less to get the same item. Why would prescriptions be any different, I suppose?

We at Medtipster.com encourage you to use our database to find the pharmacy with your specific prescription available on a pharmacy’s $4 generic program close to your home. If you’re taking several medications, this could mean you have several different pharmacy visits every month or every three months. It seems like it makes sense, but then again, does it have to be this way?

Pharmacies want your business. They want to keep you as a customer. Many offer gift cards and incentives to get you in there once, with every intention of keeping you. Next time you have a prescription, you’re already in the database, the pharmacy technician is familiar with your prescription history, and the hassle of a new pharmacy is obsolete. So, why wouldn’t they do what they have to do to keep you?

Price matching is something we hear all the time. This takes me back to my original question, why would prescriptions be any different, I suppose? They are not. Ask your pharmacy technician to match the price being offered at the next pharmacy! It can’t hurt to ask, and all they can say is, “no.”

Find your generics on Medtipster.com first then make a note of where the other generics are available on a generics program. Print the list, or go directly to the competing pharmacy and ask for a print out of the generic’s cost. Take that to the pharmacy of your choice and simply say, “I want to keep all of my prescriptions here, can you match the price of this competing pharmacy’s generic equivalent?”

Switch it up and save! Save time, gas money, and frustration.

Look No Further: Prescription Coupons Soon Online

January 28, 2010 By: Tylar Masters Category: Medtipster, Prescription Savings

If you’re searching for savings on brand name prescriptions, our user friendly and searchable database of coupons come straight from the manufacturer.

Many people have trouble affording their prescriptions, especially those without health insurance. In fact, one single prescription for a 30-day supply can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. I’ve heard stories of people having to choose between their medications and groceries, and it breaks my heart to think of such dilemma. No one should have to make that choice!

There are ways you can save significant amounts of money on your prescriptions, and I’m not just shouting Medtipster.com here. The growth of internet coupons has exploded over the last few years, to include everything you can imagine – and even, yes, prescriptions. You may already be familiar with our database, which locates the $4 generic program for your specific prescription at your local pharmacy. However, beyond that, we’ve done our homework on certain pharmacy’s required memberships, programs, and rates where necessary. The information is available to everyone right here, at no charge.

If your prescription is not available as a generic, or not available at a pharmacy near you, we have options in store for you! Drug makers often have prescription assistance programs, though in most cases, it is difficult to maneuver through the steps to get the help you need. Here at Medtipster, we understand that frustration and came up with a simple solution to the problem.

Medtispter.com will be implementing a new coupon database and assistance program. The endless internet search through website hoaxes and scams is over! Have you ever tried searching online for “prescription drug coupons?” The results can be a bit confusing, and can stray quite a bit away from what you were really looking to find.

We are working very hard to collect the drug manufacturer’s coupons at large, to create a database that is easy to search through and to find your specific prescription coupon. In many cases, these will save you hundreds of dollars a month! In fact, if your prescription is not available as a generic equivalent, or not available at a pharmacy near you, one click of the button to “locate coupon” will serve as relief, as well as the option to find therapeutic alternatives.

We Apologize for the Inconvenience

November 03, 2009 By: Tylar Masters Category: H1N1 News, Medtipster

flushotscancelled Pharmacies cancel seasonal flu shots due to the demand for H1N1 vaccine.

When I saw this picture, I immediately thought, “wow, how frustrating for the people who showed up to get a flu shot only to read this sign in disappointment.” Then I sat down to begin blogging about it, and had nothing but writer’s block, or so I thought.

Nope, I don’t have writer’s block. This picture is worth a thousand words!

I have a continuous search running on my twitter tweetdeck for H1N1 and every minute of every day, at least one new tweet mentions H1N1. Everyone is seriously concerned about swine flu! What is most important is preventing it and treating it by knowing when and where the vaccine is available, and where to go for treatment if you have symptoms.

And I just want to shout it from the rooftops! Medtipster.com has this information available! It’s there, I promise! You won’t have to drive around looking and hoping to find the flu shot somewhere. We know what pharmacies have the seasonal flu shot AND the H1N1 vaccine. We know supplies are limited, we know the country is in a panic, we know the frustration people are feeling. Medtipster.com was designed to help!

Medtipster.com is the trusted source for the latest information this flu season! Share this with your friends, your family, your co-workers, your dog walker, even your enemies, whom perhaps would be happy to give you their swine flu!

Avoid the inconvenience, the apologies, and most of all, the headache. Stay informed with www.medtipster.com.
