Truthfully, I am snobby about only using Walgreens for our pharmacy and health needs. It was fast and free to set up an Online Accountfor Family Prescription Management and now I can refill my family’s prescriptions simply by scanning them from my mobile phone! (But wait, there’s more.) I can have prescriptions sent to whatever Walgreens I choose AND even have them shipped right to my door with FREE Shipping. (Seriously!) But a good value is not only about all the free stuff at Walgreens. I would pay any amount of money for the security of knowing that Walgreens will take care of my family’s health without me ever having to give it a second thought.
We have health issues in our family that require daily medications that can not be missed. We have to rely on Walgreens for Auto Refill (Automatic Prescription Refills). My husband for example, takes a series of medications for various health issues. Some of those prescriptions are because he only is a couple of years away from having a kidney transplant. My husband was born with a non-hereditary but genetic defect called IGA nephrothopy that causes his body to not break down cold and flu fighting antibodies.
Every time he has had a cold and flu over the course of his 43 years, the antibodies have pushed through his kidneys leaving holes and scar tissue. He is now to the point where his kidneys function below 30%. He will be going on dialysis and put on a waiting list in the next year or two depending on how often he gets sick. The wrong combination of medications could cause further damage to his kidneys so we can only have the best pharmacy on our side. We rest assured knowing that Walgreens understands these issues and will protect our family from mistakes.
(HA! As I am writing this post, Walgreens just called my home phone to let me know that my prescription is ready to pick up! Check it out!! This reminder is for me. I went online awhile back and easily got on Walgreens free prescription Auto Refill service. Now every month before I run out, Walgreens fills my Rx and has it ready for me to pick up at their 24 hour drive through! Piece of cake, Peace of Mind.) “I love Walgreens.”
Another feature that is important to Moms is their live chat online for any questions that we might have regarding our family’s medications or health. I have had to Chat with a pharmacist at Walgreens about various issues and always had a friendly and smart conversation that left me feeling calm and secure. And I can access Pharmacy Chat from anywhere. And it is FREE!
Not too long ago I was filling out a sports form and it asked a medical question that I could not remember the dates for. I took out my cell phone, tapped the app and within a minute I had the dates, the spellings of the medicines, the doses, everything that I needed right there when I needed it. I filled out the form and had another thing checked off of my to do list! (Whew!) One less thing to think about is great for managing my stress. A whole lot less to worry about gives me a better quality of life.
I did not know Walgrens offerd the mailing service. Thanks for that info

I love these services they offer, with a busy life they sure make life so much easier!

I use their auto refill service too and they text me. If I don’t pick it up within a day or so, they text again. I need those reminders!
What a great service. I’ll have to check out Walgreens for my prescriptions.
Great services they offer. Wish your family the best.
Walgreens is where we go to pick up prescriptions too!
I have always liked Walgreens for prescriptions and for their good deals on OTC health products.
I think the text messages from Walgreens are a lifesaver. I can do errands and have them text me when the meds are ready.
I’m sorry to hear about all the issues your hubby has with his kidneys! I personally use Walgreens for all my prescriptions.
Those refill reminders are a must for me.
Walgreens is great. I hope your husband is doing well managing his health issues. Sounds like Walgreen’s helps you with that!

I love Walgreens.. they have many different services and all help me as a mom to keep my family happy and healthy and me sane..lol..thanks for sharing
Being military I don’t do much prescription drug shopping since I get them at the army hospital but I can certainly see why moms would go to Walgreens. 🙂
If we had a steady prescription having a reliable service like this would be a must!
Wow, I use a different pharmacy and they don’t have that many perks.
Danielle @ We Have It All
I love Walgreens, we get our prescriptions filled there too.
We use Walgreens too!

This looks like a great app!! I’m going to look into it!!
We don`t have Walgreen`s here, but I can see how it would be a family favorite 🙂
I WANT a Walgreens in My town!!! Like right now! I’m pretty frustrated with our current pharmacy, and Walgreens seems so much easier.
I am so pleased to read that you are happy with Walgreens.
So sorry to hear about all the medical issues your husband deals with, but glad you are both on board with how to stay on schedule with medications! Love walgreens too!
yep, love using walgreens! So easy to do everything there. Hope your husband gets better too!
I love Walgreens, not only for their prescriptions, but also for their great products. They have super sales and it makes it easy to do a lot of shopping there when I pick up my meds. I am glad you have found someplace that helps your husband.
I honestly didn’t know that you could did this much with Walgreens. My husband just gave this pharmacy as the one we would use to my OB so I’m actually feeling pretty excited that we selected this as our go-to pharmacy after reading this post. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
It really is great to find apps like this one that make life better and easier to manage.

We love Walgreens for prescriptions. There is one right in our neighborhood which is so convenient.
Elizabeth@ Food Ramblings
That’s the pharmacy I use!

Great post!!! I use Walgreens all the time and their app makes getting prescriptions and photos so much easier! #client
I don’t currently use Walgreens but have in the past and always found it convenient. I love that you can have the prescriptions shipped to your house. I do this with mine!
I love all the conveniences that Walgreen offers. Drive thru pick up is a life saver. Good luck to your husband with his kidney health. My daughter’s best friend received his kidney transplant the 2nd of this year and he is doing great. You are in my prayers.
I use Walgreens all the time because it’s so conveniently located and all these mobile and online services just make things even more convenient for our family.

I love when businesses take the initiative and really work to create services that benefit the customer. These free services from Walgreens simplify life! #client
