One way to save money on the purchase of the drugs you need is to find pharmacies that offer them for free or at a very low cost.

There are several reasons why drug pricing is reduced, beyond these sellers just wanting to lure you into their store! There are also rules you must follow to make the purchase. As long as you understand those reasons and rules, it will be safe to purchase or obtain your prescription drugs from these sellers.

First Steps 

1. Understand why these drugs are free or inexpensive

2. Know the rules - what you need in order to take advantage of this great pricing.

Once you are prepared to make these purchases, you can use the below list of supermarkets and pharmacies that offer free or low-cost antibiotics, diabetes drugs, pre-natal and children's vitamins and hundreds of generic drugs:
