How to Save on Health While Spending for Valentines!

It’s almost February! It’s the month of hearts – and Valentine’s Day draws near. It’s time for romantic candlelit dinners, flowers and chocolates, and of course, it’s time to get a little broke once again. Aw.

Wait, saving on health expenses means more moolah for dates?!

But that doesn’t have to be the case, yes? Spending on Valentine’s doesn’t have to make you feel like you have to pay an arm and a leg. You don’t have to dip into your savings, especially when you are also paying for medications. Love and health, in more ways than one, go together.

Okay, I know, that sounds a little forced, but really, isn’t it easier to go out on a date when you know you have money to spare, and that you’re not sacrificing your budget for the antihypertensive drugs you should be buying? It’s time to spend wisely. Know what discounts are out there. Avail of discount cards and memberships that can benefit you.

For instance, there’s Walgreens. They are giving discounts when you avail of one year’s membership for their very own Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens. An annual fee of $10 entitles you to a family membership that covers your spouse and also your dependents (must be 22 years old or younger). A family membership includes even your pets! For that reason alone, I’m loving the offer from Walgreens. And if you’re single, membership is at $5.

What are the benefits? Discounts on prescriptions for you and your pets (whether generic or brand name), shots, and some merchandise (supplies for diabetics and asthmatics). You also get extra bonuses upon buying Walgreens-branded items or if you avail of the photofinishing services.
