I absolutely adore things that make my life simpler and that is exactly what Walgreens does for me with medication refills and “Pharmacy Chat” through their phone ap! Now, before you can say “I don’t have a smart phone”…I need to tell you that you can do all of this from the Walgreens website, through your computer too!
This is the PERFECT solution for busy folks who are looking for any simple way to shave a few minutes off of simple tasks each day…you can use those “FREE” minutes to do something fun like read a book to your peanut or even escape for a quick treat at your local coffee shop with a book.
HOW does this all work?
Seriously, it’s so simple that you won’t believe it! *I* can do it and I have to be one of the least “techy” people you know.
First of all, you need the Walgreens application on your phone. (remember, you can do this online too – go “>
Now, click the app…and you get this:
I don’t have to tell you about the coupons or weekly ads, as I share their awesome deals with you weekly, and have already shared how amazing their Balance Rewards program is! Each prescription gets you 500 points AND this month, you get 50 points for each beauty item you purchase! Those points add up quicker than you might think and can net you a lot of great freebies.
Now, see those two little dots at the bottom?
That means there are more options on the next screen and you should “swipe” your phone to see them. You will then see links to shop online, find a clinic, build a shopping list, their Steps program, and my favorite: “>Pharmacy Chat is for all of you parents who are woken up, in the middle of the night, with a sick kiddo. Your clinic is closed and you have no one to really call to figure out what on earth you should do to make your peanut feel better. They are SO kind, SO patient and help walk a tired and frazzled parent through what can be done to alleviate symptoms so everyone can rest. They help with dosage, alternatives and more. I have used them also to find out if my current medications can be taken if I was pregnant… or if a new script was going to cause a problem from my allergy list. Seriously, this is a golden FREE service that they offer! Being able to chat with a Pharmacist can really make a difference.
Now, let’s refill a prescription!
You can click the “Refill by Scan” option and do this:
OR you can click the “Pharmacy” option and see this:
(sigh) I can’t talk to my husband and do it at the same time…but seriously, it IS easy and they are SO AMAZING on the help line. They walk you through your security words and reset you. Your account is SECURE!
Click on “Prescription Refills”.
Before you say anything, yes, this is MY screen. Y’all know I have Fibromyalgia, OsteoArthritis, TMJ, Post Traumatic Stress, (and I could go on…). These are the four things that I have on file for an “as needed” remedy. I wanted to show you how amazing this system is.
Click on the cute little arrow of the script you want to refill.
Then you get this:
Wasn’t it easy?
There are SO MANY things you can do with this Walgreens app! Just look at this again:
I can “take care of business” while waiting for Miss Sarah at dance class or in the school pick up line and know I could hit their handy drive through for a pick up or, did you know that they have FREE shipping? Now, you save even MORE time!
Now, if all of that wasn’t great, get this: it’s FREE.
So, what are you waiting for?
If you haven’t done this already, hit your Google Play store or get your iPhone app for Walgreens now — I know you will find their Pharmacy services as helpful as I do!
Now, off to read that book to Miss Sarah…
