Again, Walgreens

This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.

My last entry was about Walgreens, and this entry is about Walgreens; again.

I have to admit that the Walgreens case really got to my heart, so I’m happy to share some good news today. It was time for something good – I’ve had a rough week.

This month Walgreens is offering a special discount on both family and individual annual membership for the Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens.

What happens is that families can purchase an annual membership for just $35 a year (don’t fool yourself, it IS cheap!) or an individual membership for just $20, if you live alone.

Other benefits include:

As customers you can show your support by liking Walgreens on Facebook or by following Walgreens on Twitter if you have an account there.

What counts is that Walgreens, as a company, is back to safety level (the whole Express Scripts issue got scary last month) and that it continues to provide its customers with incredibly generous discounts and offers, giving its usual remarkable contribution to the wellbeing of families.

Walgreens is synonymous to ‘welfare’ in my dictionary.

When human hearts lack of compassion…

This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.

In this entry, my focus switches from writing to the lack of humanity of some company-taken decisions, which you may or may not agree with, but that you will certainly recognize as poor in compassion and customer care.

I’m talking about the ongoing dispute between Walgreens and Express Scripts. I’m sure you’ve heard about it. A one-phrase summary of the situation may be: Express Scripts Inc. decided that Walgreens was no longer a profit for them so they chose to kick it out of their pharmacy network.

‘Fine’, you could say, ‘Who cares?’ Well, I wouldn’t ask ‘who cares?’ when you – as a customer – risk not being able to buy your prescription drugs anymore because they’re no longer served at your community pharmacy as of January 1st of 2012. Now, perspectives change, don’t they?

The customer IS always the one affected by these sudden decisions and long diatribes… and the customer is poor communities, troops, employers, … YOU.

Now, Walgreens is a good-hearted company and is doing all it can to help people ease the burden placed on their shoulders by Express Scripts. In fact, they are offering a special membership – $5-$10/year – to help patients get their discount prescription drugs without having to drive off town to get their medicines. It’s the Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens, real manna from Heaven. The program also offers savings on over 8,000 products and diabetic supplies, plus bonuses apply when you purchase brand-name products. I think that’s really generous of them, especially since they’re currently at loss too.

Guess we can do something to support Walgreens too, by ‘liking’ Walgreens on Facebook and adding @Walgreens on Twitter. It’s good to stay updated on the situation as well.

Let’s pray for a positive end of this diatribe…

An opportunity filled with humour and wittiness

This post brought to you by Contest Factory. All opinions are 100% mine.

I understand this contest has little to do with writing, but its an opportunity to let out your other creative talents: video-making, comedy, humour. 🙂

It’s the Pimp My Cube Contest and it ends on 1/31/12 at 12:00 PM. All you need to do it take a funny video of your work or home cubicle, showing its most messy and pathetic features, including old technology pieces and a lot of junk on the floor or the desk. In the video, you should explain why your work/study place is so messy and how Contest Factory can help you by ‘pimping’ your ‘cube’.

Here’s an example:

Entering the contest is easy: once you register and upload your video you’re officially participating; then you only need to  invite your friends, family and coworkers to give your video a vote and possibly a comment. That’s all you need. 🙂 Also, you may vote and comment on other participants’ videos to get extra sweepstakes points. If your video is selected by CF judges, you win the grand prize.

The grand prize carries a $1,200 value, but there is going to be an extra prize for a randomly chosen user too: a $200 gift card.

The grand prize comes with:

What else? Wish you the best of luck! 😉 Almost no one has uploaded a video, so your chances of winning are high. Give it a try. ^^

And I’m back to writing (gosh, so much to catch up with!)…
