Wide variety of Over The Counter medicines and products are available and prices vary from just a couple of dollars to almost four or five times that. So how does one save money on OTC medicines and products? Consumers are becoming smarter and they can take advantage of serious price differences if they know where to look.
Here are some tips to save money on Over The Counter medicines.
1. Don’t Buy Brand Name OTC Medicines: Unlike prescription medicine, most OTC medicines are not patented or out of patent. A not so famous brand or a generic store brand version of the over the counter medicine is a lot cheaper and gives the same effect. So why pay more for a name on the box which you are going to throw away anyways.
2. Buy Smaller Packaging: Bigger is not always better. Over The Counter medicines will expire over time and cannot be used again. So get a smaller bottle of that cough syrup. The next double size may only be two dollars more expensive but most likely that extra cough syrup will not be used and will expire sitting in the refrigerator.
3. Use Your Phone to Find Discounts on OTC Medicines: Mobile app such as OTCplus can be very handy when you are shopping OTC medicines. OTCplus app not only shows the little tidbits about the medicines, which you really need to know such as use and side effects in simple language, but also has links to discount coupons. OTCplus app can be downloaded for the iPhone or Android.
4. Buy In A Dollar Stores: Many dollar stores carry over the counter medicines also and much cheaper than drug stores. The packaging may be smaller but many a times that is all you need. Dollar stores also carry generic version of popular over the counter creams such as scar reducing creams etc for just a few bucks.
