On paper, ScriptSave’s WellRx and GoodRx are extremely competitive. They offer a free service to all pharmacy customers regardless of their income or insurance status. With either pharmacy discount card, customers can save up to 80% on their prescription medications at over 60,000 pharmacies nationwide. Registration is not required to get access to either coupon. Both companies offer a free app to iOS and Android users, which makes their pharmacy savings convenient for all smartphone users. 

Many people ask: What’s the catch? Fortunately, there isn’t one. WellRx and GoodRx are both BBB-accredited and have A+ BBB ratings. 

So, what’s the difference? There are a few. WellRx has been in the business longer than GoodRx, so it’s website and app feel a little outdated compared to GoodRx’s bright and bold design. However, that also means that WellRx has had time to build a positive reputation among pharmacy customers. With a nearly 5-star TrustScore, WellRx is certainly a trustworthy brand.

Perhaps the most important difference between WellRx vs GoodRx is the savings you’ll get on medication. Admittedly, we were surprised to find that WellRx had lower prices than GoodRx 9 times out of 10.

Note: This is a small dataset of only 10 drugs out of thousands in the WellRx and GoodRx database. To find the lowest price for your prescription, you’ll want to compare both apps. Dosage, generic/brand status, pharmacy, and location play a role in determining drug prices.

GoodRx Gold is another option to consider. It’s a monthly subscription service that costs between $5.99 and $9.99. By paying this monthly premium, GoodRx Gold cardholders can unlock savings up to 90% on 1,000 drugs. These savings could be higher than WellRx and other pharmacy discount cards, but you should compare your savings to the premium you pay for the service.
