Walgreens Generic Prescription, Internet
*Consumer Suggestion: Not believing the truth doesn't make it false
*General Comment: Pharmacy Pricing Varies, But Walgreens is Worth It.
*Consumer Comment: Experienced same thing with Walgreens
On January 4th 2011 I had two prescriptions filled at Walgreens in Show Low Arizona. These prescriptions were for 30 tablets of Tamsulosin 0.4MG and 30 tablets of Finasteride 5MG. I was charged $186.98 for these generic drugs. When checking out I questioned the amount I was charged and was told this is Walgreens "CASH" price and there was not a lower price.
When I left Walgreens with my prescriptions I felt I had been screwed for generic drugs so I went across the street to Wal Mart to obtain a price quote on the same two identical prescriptions. The quote from (((competitor's name redacted))) was $87.72 for both prescriptions.
I left (((redacted))) and went back to Walgreens question why I was charged $99 more than (((redacted))) and I was told by the Pharmacy Manager that (((redacted))) was selling these two drugs as "Lost Leader" and there was nothing Walgreens could do about matching (((redacted))). I don't believe (((redacted))) is in the business of loosing money.
I you are having a prescription filled or refilled get a quote from (((competitor's name redacted))) before ordering.
sorry, allowing you to give a competitors name would instigate others to just file against their competition, to only come back later to suggest their company, ..plus, if you post a competitors name more than likely they will show up on search engines as a Rip-off! - - your comments on this policy are welcome.
