The competition is close between SingleCare and RetailMeNot’s RxSaver, as seen in the chart above. Both are free pharmacy discount services that any U.S. pharmacy customer can use to save up to 80% on prescriptions. These are not limited time offers and they never expire. You can use (and reuse) SingleCare or RxSaver coupons on your whole family’s medications.

So, what’s the difference? Is there a catch? Are pharmacy discount cards a scam? The answer is simple—no. SingleCare and RxSaver are accredited with the Better Business Bureau and have A+ ratings. Plus, it’s difficult to call any free service a scam. 

There’s no catch either. You don’t even have to sign up to access these coupons—a tough feat in the digital age. Simply search for your medication online or on the free app, find a pharmacy near you with the lowest price, and save, email, and text coupons or show a pharmacist your app at checkout. It’s easy, convenient, and works similarly on both SingleCare and RxSaver.

Dwindling down the single most important difference between any pharmacy discount card is the price. Which card can save you the most money on your prescription?

It had lower prices on 6 of 10 drugs and the same low price as RxSaver on another drug (levothyroxine)—another testament to how close this competition really is!
