Aberg Center for Literacy recently partnered with RefillWise to sign up students, staff and volunteers for discounted prescriptions. I was moved to tears when I learned that following a three week stay in the hospital, one of our affiliates saved almost $800 in ONE visit to the pharmacy! I am thankful for RefillWise and the impact they are making!
— Shana Harrison (nonprofit executive director)

My insurance stopped covering an important prescription this year. One text to RefillWise saved me $100! Thank you!
— Amy (joined via text)

Used the digital card to refill a prescription that would have cost $300 instead of $38 with the card. I am telling others about this card and my son-in-law is signing up also. Thank you.
— Annie (joined online)

Got prescriptions at Kroger for our family. Original cost was $445. Actual cost with RefillWise was $145, for a savings of $300! We are thrilled!

A Heart Health Valentine

by Anna Hithersay February 13, 2017 News

This week we celebrate Valentine’s Day, a day filled with love and hearts, which makes it the perfect time to remember to check your own heart health, and the heart health of your loved ones. February is also National Heart Month; what if instead of handing out Valentines, this year you express your love by encouraging your friends and family to focus on their heart health?

Heart Disease

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for Americans. The most common type of heart disease is coronary heart disease which is when the arteries in the body become narrow with plaque build up. This increases the likelihood of a heart attack.

Some people are prone to heart disease based on their genetics. If you have family members with heart disease, you are more likely to get heart disease too. But there are other risk factors based on lifestyle such as being overweight, not exercising, eating a poor diet, and smoking. High cholesterol and high blood pressure are also signs that you are at risk.

Whether you are at risk due to genetics or lifestyle choices, it is important to know that there are things you can do to lower your risk. Losing weight, exercising, healthy eating, and quitting smoking will all reduce the risk of heart disease. You can also take medications that will help lower cholesterol and blood pressure.

Heart Healthy Valentines

Changing your lifestyle can lower your risk so consider giving your valentine something that will help them be healthier.

Some heart healthy gift ideas are:

  • a gym membership

  • a date at a local nature preserve

  • a heart healthy meal such as salmon and roasted vegetables

  • a pact to quit smoking together

  • a heart healthy cooking class

See a Doctor

You should also encourage your loved ones to check with their doctor about their heart health. Regular screenings with a physician can help you learn about problems in time to make a change. A doctor will be able to check blood pressure and order a cholesterol screening and other tests. The results will help them determine your heart health and what options you have to lower your risk of heart disease. They may be able to prescribe medications that will help lower your cholesterol or blood pressure and can give you specific advice about lifestyle changes that will help you.

Sometimes people avoid seeing their doctor because they of the cost of medications they may need. If you or a loved one need a prescription but don't have insurance or can't afford it, use a free RefillWise card to save up to 80% at the pharmacy and earn cash rewards. You can save on medicines that lower blood pressure and cholesterol or help you quit smoking, and your cash rewards maybe used for anything in the store — like heart-healthy dark chocolate for your sweetie. What's not to love?

Three Tips to Get the Most out of your RefillWise Experience

by Melanie Wilcox February 7, 2017 How to Use

As a RefillWise member, we want to ensure you reap the most rewards and benefits out of your RefillWise card. Our mission is to make your prescriptions affordable, accessible, and available – and three tips outlined below will help you instantly save up to 80% at the pharmacy while earning cash rewards.

Tip #1: Sign Up Via Text

You can sign up for RefillWise by texting JOIN to 22822. One benefit of signing up by text is you will have your card with you at all times you carry your phone. Another benefit? As long as you have your phone, you won't forget your card, and even if you lose your phone, we can replace your card so you won't lose any of the cash rewards you earned.

Tip #2: Keep a Spare Membership Card

If you register for a new account at RefillWise.com, request a card by email to print at home, then print an extra copy. Or if you receive our card by mail, make a photocopy and store it in a safe place, or take a picture of it. Even if you lose your original card, you can easily contact us to request a new card, and the cash rewards you have already earned can still be redeemed. Our friendly customer service team is also always available to listen and help you with your card or your account.

Tip #3: Share Membership among Family Members

By sharing one membership per household, you earn rewards faster and more often. You can also request or print extra copies of your card for your household members to use, similar to how several relatives in the same family may share one rewards card telephone number at a grocery store chain. If you don't want other members of your household to see your prescription history and want to personally receive a $5 gift card after filling each tenth prescription, it would make sense for you to keep your account separate from other family members. But if you pick up prescriptions for other family members in your care — even your pet — your rewards will accumulate much faster.

By signing up via text, requesting or printing an extra card online for your account, and sharing your membership with the people and pets in your household, you will reap the most rewards from your RefillWise experience.

You Get Rewards for Gas and Groceries - Why Not Prescriptions?

by Melanie Wilcox January 30, 2017 Drug Savings

The chances that you have a rewards membership are high: according to Colloquy, American consumers hold 3.3 billion memberships in customer loyalty programs, a 26 percent increase over the number of memberships reported in 2013. Each American is a member of about 10 customer loyalty programs. The majority of Americans participate in customer rewards programs, and customers expect companies to offer them.

But one area where Americans still need to save is on prescription drugs. Several companies offer coupons to save on prescription drugs, but those coupons often contribute to increased insurance premiums. No other free pharmacy discount card provider enables you to consistently save and earn cash rewards, except RefillWise.

Our simple solution – a free pharmacy discount card – enables you to save up to 80 percent on your prescription medications. The first time you use RefillWise to fill a prescription, you earn a $5 gift card. Then, after every tenth prescription filled, you earn another $5 gift card which may be used for anything in store. And you can earn drug store or grocery store chains rewards at the same time.

Unlike grocery chains and gas stations that offer rewards, RefillWise earns cash rewards at any chain pharmacy and most independent pharmacies too. You don't have a rewards card that will enable you to save on premium gas at several competing filling stations. You also don't have a card that enables you to save on groceries – or specific kinds of foods – at competing grocery chains. They don't exist. Our card can be used in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. We want it to be convenient and easy for you to pay the lowest possible prices for your prescription drugs so you can stay healthy and afford other groceries you and your family need.
