Called "United States Prescription Discounts" attached are two free, activated cards with no fees whatsoever and states never to be charged for them, to help you save up to 75% off on all FDA apporved medications/prescriptions. Accepted at Walmart, Rite Aid, Target, Costco, Walgreens etc (50,000 pharmacies nationwide.

What is the catch here?
I can't find anything on the net about it being a scam.

When I didn't have insurance a couple of years ago and told my Target pharmacist, he gave me some kind of prescription discount card, and the meds cost me next to nothing. I don't remember the name of it offhand, but I'll see if I can find it later. Maybe it's to get people to use the participating pharmacies.

"...help you save up to 75% off", only means you MIGHT get that much of a discount; but are more likely to get 10% (or less).
Once is an accident, twice is coincidence, three times is enemy action.

If it is legit...I am sharing the info with my mother. She has hundreds of dollars of prescriptions that are eating up her money,

I was just thinking...I don't think I have had a prescription to fill in over 5 years...probably longer.

One of my family members did recently sign up for something called Express Scripts. Which may have triggered this offer somehow.

I may be using one of those Canadian prescription sites within the month. Diovan is ridiculously expensive here in the U.S. at $130 for a one-month prescription. I can get 80 pills for $64 at a Canadian place that fills U.S. prescriptions.

My mom has probably 10 meds and they are still hundreds of dollars after insurance.
That is monthly :(

I signed up. Ah, this prescription place isn't Canadian after all, it's in Houston. Go figure.
