I have been a big fan of gasbuddy.com for a while. I discovered that gas stations right across the street from each other can have as much as 20 cent per gallon difference in price. GasBuddy.com will tell me what the cheapest place is for gas in my area.
When I was at the gym tonight I saw a piece on the news that said it is the same situation with prescription medications at pharmacies. Each pharmacy has to negotiate their own deals, so pharamicies within walking distance of each other will have different prices for the exact same drug.
Type in your prescription and you location. It will tell you where in your area you can get it and rank the results by price. The news piece said that depending on your situation you could save 20% or more. One couple that was interviewed saved $2000 a year.
