How to Get a 99% Off Your Prescription (without ordering from Canada)

Written by Lucia Mueller | Reviewed by a licensed U.S. pharmacist | Posted August 12, 2020 | Updated December 04, 2020

When I tell people they can probably save around 90% off their medication if they just download a coupon online, they often balk at such a steep discount. “You mean from Canada? Isn’t that dangerous?” First of all, no, I don’t mean from Canada (this time): This is a free coupon for use at local pharmacies in the U.S. Second of all, no, buying meds sold in Canada is not dangerous, but we can talk about that at a different time. This discount is referring to the budget-pleasing possibilities right in your own neighborhood. We’ve been tracking prescription savings across the U.S. of patients that have used the U.S. Prescription Discount Card and coupons. And the numbers will leave my friends and family thinking I’m selling them something even more far-fetched: There are people all over the U.S. presenting the U.S. Prescription Discount Card to achieve savings up to… wait for it... 99% off the retail price. Take a look:

People Who Saved Big Using

“I really love your website. It has saved our family a lot of money over the past couple of years. Drugs are so expensive. We need to find the lowest cost drugs to meet our budget. Thank you for your service.”

John B.

“Our patients are held hostage by these outrageous pharmaceutical costs in the US. I am grateful to have discovered PharmacyChecker as well, as are my patients. Last week, I saw one of my patients who is an RN with Parkinson's disease; she was in the "donut hole" with Medicare and no longer able to afford her medications. Because of PharmacyChecker, she is now back on her meds. She is telling all of her friends about your website. Your work makes a huge difference in the world.”

A Doctor in Sacramento, CA

“I was put on Xarelto. After one and half months of my insurance paying for this drug, I could not afford the medication. So I looked online and found PharmacyChecker. I then with a prescription ordered my Xarelto from one of their recommended pharmacies, and paid $348.00 for a three month supply of Xarelto... I'm very pleased and happy with PharmacyChecker and my Canadian pharmacy recommended by them. Without them, I would not be able to take my Xarelto. Thank you for your great service.”
