Members will be able to “unlock exclusive savings on thousands of the most commonly prescribed medications” ranging from zero cost to up to 85% off, a statement said. Medications for heart health, mental health, antibiotics, allergies and diabetes management are just a handful of what members have access to at a discount.
To use the program, members must present their pharmacy savings card, along with a valid prescription at any Walmart pharmacy location.
Walmart launched Walmart+ in Dec. 2020, which is similar to Amazon Prime. It offers unlimited, same-day delivery, along with other perks such as savings on gas at fuel stations and access to the “Scan & Go” feature in the Walmart app. It costs $12.95 a month or $98 a year, and includes a 15-day free trial.
In contrast, an Amazon Prime membership costs $12.99 per month or $119 per year, including a 30-day free trial. You can sign up for a 30-day free trial here and cancel at any time.
The perks come ahead of Amazon’s annual Prime Day and Walmart’s “Deal for Days.” The mega-shopping events overlap: Prime Day is June 21-22, while Walmart’s “Deals for Days” will take place from June 20-23.
