This writer has always been impressed by the high prices charged for national-brand non-prescription medicines. The same products sold under a store brand are much less expensive, and in most cases work just as well. The price difference is less for health and beauty aids such as shampoos, but can still be substantial.
The first approach to saving money on these products is to give the store brands a try. Most stores give a money-back guarantee, so save the receipts and return the products if they fail to please. But some people really like a national-brand product or perhaps there is no store brand available for a certain item.
In that case, look into savings programs that are offered by the drug store chains. These programs give cash rebates and free goods to members. They are a smart way to put some of the money charged for national brands back into the consumer’s wallet. For more information, check the website.
