But patients of Canadian online pharmacies like NorthWestPharmacy.com are saving thousands a year and avoiding the price increases in the USA,
(PRWEB) June 06, 2011
NorthWestPharmacy.com, the highly-rated Canada pharmacy & international online drugs website, has just released the results of its Canadian Pharmacy Online Quarterly Savings Survey. The average reported savings when purchasing Canadian drugs and international online pharmacy products from NorthWestPharmacy.com was $588 in the second quarter of 2011.
“That’s a whopping $2352 a year,” exclaims Mike Bhangu, a manager at the Canadian online pharmacy’s call center in British Columbia, Canada. Drugs cost far less in Canada and other parts of the world than in the USA because drug companies are subject to price controls in other countries to prevent gouging consumers. Such price controls do not exist in the USA, leaving drug companies to increase prices in America as they see fit. And according to a recent media article, they appear to be increasing drug prices “just for the hell of it.”
“But patients of Canadian online pharmacies like NorthWestPharmacy.com are saving thousands a year and avoiding the price increases in the USA,” says Mr. Bhangu.
More than 800 patients who buy Canada’s drugs online as well as international medicines from the Canadian online pharmacy responded to the survey that was sent to approximately 4500 American patients. In the three months ending May 31, 2011, they report saving an average $588 when buying online drugs in a 90 day supply from NorthWestPharmacy.com versus their local American pharmacy, making the annualized savings more than $2350. The annualized Canadian Pharmacy Online Quarterly Savings Survey results for the second quarter beats the savings reported in a similar survey done at the end of 2010 in which the average annual savings was reported to be $2043. It also beats last quarter’s reported annualized savings of $2324.
While it is not entirely clear what the reason for the upward savings trend since 2010 is, some experts on Canadian online pharmacies believe that it is due to continued price increases of drugs in the USA.
What is clear, however, is that Canadian drugs buyers do not have to sacrifice on safety or service when buying from reputable Canadian pharmacies online. The best suppliers of Canada’s drugs online have extensive safety programs to ensure they only supply authentic Canadian drugs online and international medicines. NorthWestPharmacy.com discusses its safety program on the “Drug Safety & Authenticity” page of its website. Also, some 20,000 of its actual customers have posted their detailed reviews of the online Canadian pharmacy’s service through Shopper Approved, a well-known third party online ratings and review organization. These Shopper Approved reviews of NorthWestPharmacy.com have made the Canadian online drugs site the most independently reviewed Canada pharmacy website in the world. NorthWestPharmacy.com is the only Canadian pharmacy online to have earned the five-star seal from Shopper Approved.
Certified by the Canadian International Pharmacy Association, NorthWestPharmacy.com has gone the additional step of protecting its customers by becoming a buySAFE bonded merchant. All purchases with Canadian pharmacies that are approved by buySAFE come with an extensive set of guarantees which are backed by some of the biggest insurance companies in the country.
Privacy and secure handling of personal data should always be a concern when buying anything online, and especially when buying online drugs. That’s why the Canadian drugs retailer is one of a handful of Canadian online pharmacies to be certified by TRUSTe, a leading online consumer privacy company.
NorthWestPharmacy.com encourages consumers to save money with online pharmacies safely and avoid sites that sell prescription drugs without a prescription written by their own doctor. Such sites are not legitimate Canadian online pharmacies.
