GoodRx Discount Card Review

Prices

GoodRx is a great way to compare prices on prescription drugs and get discounts. Its comparison tool has access to millions of prices and shows all GoodRx discounts available on each prescription drug that you need. This website and mobile app provide negotiated drug discount coupons along with manufacturer coupons that drop the price. This tool enabled you to see the cheapest prices first and show you how much the same drug costs in other pharmacies.

Strictly speaking about the drug prices, GoodRx are not quite up to par with other top discount cards such as SingleCare or HelpRx. The popular drugs we’ve compared prices for were almost always cheaper with those two companies, which is why they we ranked them at the top. For drugs such as Metformin, Amlodipine, Alprazolam, Adderall, Vicodin, Plavix, Metoprolol, Levothyroxine, various statins (Atorvastatin and Simvastatin for example) and many others, we would recommend checking out SingleCare and HelpRx first. Nonetheless, using GoodRx’s discounts is still better than using none at all, and you can save good money on drugs such as Adderall XR’s generics.

App

GoodRx’s mobile app is one of the better discounts apps today and it is available for download on the Apple App Store for iOS users and on Google Play for the Android community. The app has an easy search function where you just type the name of your prescription and then all the discount coupons available will appear.

You don’t have to worry about the app showing you discounts that are far away from you. This app uses your location to show you discounts from pharmacies that are in your vicinity. You can also save your prescription so that the app will show you recent discount coupons and remind you when you have to go restock your medication. Your coupon gets saved on the app, so you don’t have to print you just have to show it to your pharmacist. More than 100,000 people vouch for it as it is shown on the app ratings.

Number of Pharmacies

GoodRx compares prices from over 70,000 pharmacies and finds you the lowest prices. This includes big retail pharmacies like Walmart, CVS, Kroger, Walgreens, Costco, Rite Aid and many more. Although you may use your discount coupons from GoodRx almost anywhere, you can’t use it at Sam’s club or to buy Opioids at Walmart. You can rest assured that you will find a pharmacy near you when you search for the drugs you need.

Membership

There are two types of services from GoodRx. The primary service being GoodRx’s free coupons and then another premium service called GoodRx Gold. The GoodRx free coupons service doesn’t require you to sign up but gives you access to free discount coupons by just searching for the medication you need. On the other hand, GoodRx Gold gives you more comprehensive discount results and offers coverage for six family members or even friends and pets. GoodRx Gold also offers more than 1,000 prescription drugs for less than $10. The membership for this service starts at $5.99 per month for the individual plan and $9.99 for the family plan, but you get the first 30 days free.

Other Features

GoodRx Gold comes with a lot of interesting extras which include:

• Online doctor consultations at a discounted price only through Lemonaid health at selected states in the U.S

• Dental plan discounts with 30 major dental plans and huge discounts on dental procedures

• Pet medications and supplies like flea medication, prescriptions, pet treats and more when ordering online through Heartland Veterinary Supply and Pharmacy

• Diabetes supplies like test strips, glucose monitors and more when you order from totaldiabetessupply.com

• Lab tests for blood samples, lipid panels, CBS and thyroid on Personal Labs.

Customer Support

GoodRx has a support section on its website dedicated to answering all FAQs that may arise from consumers. Above that, you can call or text them anytime between 8am to 7pm CST from Monday to Sunday. GoodRx is also accredited by the Better Business Bureau ® (BBB) and is rated to A+, which is the highest possible rating. It has received only 17 complaints over the past three years of its accreditation on the BBB. All the complaints were addressed and feedback was given to the customers on the online chat function of the BBB’s website.

Privacy Policy and Transparency

GoodRx’s privacy policy states that they don’t sell your personal medical data to third parties. It only uses the limited information you provide to offer you the latest discounts and issue you a discount card. The option to also discontinue receiving emails from GoodRx is also available and once you have emailed your request it will be honored and you will never receive those emails again. The privacy policy is also transparent about the matter of keeping the location you type in, or the location received from your mobile devices location feature. The policy also states that they rarely share information with a third party for purposes like issuing your discount card and activating you in the GoodRx Instant Savings program. Their policy states that whenever they do this, they ensure that these third parties comply with federal standards that pertain to handling the medical data provided. It also mentions that they only share that information with the third parties that are used directly in the fulfillment of your discount card. They also share your information only to investigate why your coupons were not accepted if that’s the case. You can also delete the personal information GoodRx has, or you can alternatively limit the use of that personal information. The policy also sheds light on its cooperation with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act because it states that it automatically deleted the information of a minor under the age of 13.

Final Word

GoodRx ranks high because of the services it offers for free and the easy-to-use website and mobile app that doesn’t require you to sign up to use it. However, the prices they offer on many drugs are not as good as other top services such as SingleCare or HelpRx. That being said, the extra benefits offered by GoodRx Gold also give GoodRx’s competitors a run for their money. The transparency their privacy policy gives also assures you that it is a trustworthy company.
