You might have heard about the unsuccessful negotiations between Walgreens and Express Scripts. Those negotiations, had they succeeded, would have allowed Walgreens to continue as part of Express Scripts pharmacy provider network.
This, as Walgreens points out, is causing significant disruption to customers and bringing absolutely no benefit to them. They now have to change pharmacists and, more than likely, have to drive further to get there. Once there, they probably arrive at a pharmacy with less convenient hours, as Walgreens has more 24-hour and drive-thru pharmacies than anyone else in the United States.
What is Walgreens doing to help ease their burden posed to customers? They are offering a special discount on annual membership for its Prescription Savings Club: For $10 a year, a family membership covers everyone in your immediate family, including a spouse, dependents 22 and younger and pets. Individuals may join for $5. Join and receive discount prices on your prescriptions.Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens
Further advantages comprised in the package consist of savings on more than 8,000 brand-name and all generic medications, discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers and diabetic supplies, and bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photofinishing services.

A wellness hotel in western Hungary that refers to itself as “four stars of smile” certainly brought a little post-holiday cheer to some of its unsuspecting guests by showering them with money.
(The money throwing starts about 45 seconds into the video below.)
The MenDan Hotel in Zalakaros, 110 miles southwest of Budapest, tossed 300,000 forints (about $1,200) on guests who were in its pool on Thursday. The marketing team at the MenDan decided that money spent in other forms of promotion could be better spent (or at least recycled) on its guests.
Eszter Pasztori, the hotel’s marketing manager, started throwing 500 forint notes ($2) at guests, before progressing to 1,000 forint ($4) and 2,000 forint ($8) bills.
Many of the guests reportedly went on to spend the money at the hotel’s bar, according to The Zalai Hirlap.
The MenDan, Pasztori announces in the video, plans to have money fall from the sky into the hands of hotel patrons every week in 2012 — at an undisclosed time each week.
Last month, General Patton, a five-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier, was having trouble standing up and needed to be carried everywhere by his owner Cassie.
The General was taken to a vet where it was diagnosed with a neurological disorder that caused “one of his intervertebral discs to apply pressure on his spine which if not taken care of will slowly paralyze him.”
Cassie needed $5,000 and fast in order to pay the for the surgery that was needed.
She went to WePay, a site for online payments, and in 13 days more than a hundred people donated enough money to cover General Patton’s operation.
“I wasn’t sure how to raise $5,000, and I knew my time was limited. I relied on my friends and family to spread the word that The General was in trouble. Hundreds of people reached out to provide support,” Cassie said.
