January, for many sports fans, is one of the greatest times of year: you begin with a bunch of great college bowl games, move in to the NFL playoffs and head for the Super Bowl, and there's that great savings on prescriptions which is like the best thing in the world...
...wait, did I lose you there? Sorry. Try to keep up. I was simply excited because not only are the AFC and NFC Championship games coming up as I write this, but also I can get a special discount on a new family-sized Walgreens Prescription Savings Club.
Walgreens is letting people, for just $10 a year -- TEN BUCKS, that's less than a dollar a month! -- join their Prescription Savings Club. That ten smackeroos gets everyone in your immediate family covered: You, your spouse, any dependents younger than 22, and pets.
Yes, pets. Maybe even that creepy tarantula that friend gave you. Why do you still have that thing? Disgusting.
Anyway, you, the wife, the kids, the parakeet: all covered for $10 a year, and what you get from that is discounts on over 8000 brand-name medications, and on all generic medications. So if you've got, say heartburn medication or high blood pressure or you have to take garlic tablets to keep your lycanthropy in check, it's all discounted, and after a couple of prescriptions you'll have your $10 back.
The benefits keep coming: discounted flu shots, discounted pet prescriptions, money off on nebulizers (if you use 'em, you know what they are), and even supplies for diabetics.
Frankly, that's MORE exciting than anything the Baltimore Ravens have ever done. Did Ed Reed save you money on your prescriptions? I highly doubt it.
