A Savings Tip (From Me to You)

This post is sponsored by Optum Perks, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Hey y'all! How are you doing? I'm checking in for a moment to see how everyone is holding up. Personally, things go up and down in waves. Some days being stuck at home feels like a true blessing. I get to revel in my children and my husband and tend to my home or just read a book. Other days I feel the weight of the whole world crashing down on me. Actually, today was one of those tougher days. I'm thinking I may address some of my parenting struggles in a later post.

While I'm here I wanted to share something that I think may be a helpful resource during this time. I know that money is uncertain for many of us. So any opportunity to save a buck is worth sharing. Most of you are familiar with the concept of prescription discount cards / programs. But, I wanted to encourage you to give this one called Optum Perks a closer look. There is no signing up, no fee, nothing. Just savings.

 Jamy and I don't have a traditional health insurance plan for our family. It's a story for another time but the short of it is that as the insurance industry changed we found an alternate 'cost sharing' plan to be the best for us. The only downside is that it doesn't pay for ANY medication and medicine is expensive. But you already know that.

Jamy and I both have standing prescriptions that we take daily. Thankfully they are not super expensive but even the cost of generics can add up. So we have been using Prescription coupons for a few years now. But it wasn't until recently when I went to the Optum Perks website that I realized I could have been saving an extra 50% on my Sertraline pills.

 I simply went to the Optum Perks website, searched for my prescription, found a coupon and saved a lot! I actually intended to save a Prescription coupon for my current pharmacy. But while I was searching the name of my medication I realized I could save even more by using the Optum Perks prescription coupon at a different pharmacy down the street. That one simple search is going to save me over $150 a year. That's a lot for doing something so small and easy. I didn't even have to enter an email address.

So, before you refill your next prescription I would definitely recommend you head to their site by clicking HERE. Or you can pull it up on your phone in seconds and search through over 64,000 pharmacies at no cost to you. You don't even have to sign up for anything. And just like that you could be saving up to 80% on your prescriptions.

I genuinely hope this is as helpful to you as it was to us.

Times are weird right now. But we're all going through this together. You've got this!
