Don’t pay for brand-name allergy meds

Today at Costco: 365-ct generic Loratadine (compare to Claritin): $11.69 + $.20 tax = $11.88. For a one-year supply. The 24-30 ct name-brand is selling at Jewel this week for $19.99, and even after a coupon and Catalina? No comparison. Generic allergy medications are one thing that are always a good buy at the warehouse clubs.

Not a Costco member? Try Amazon.

As always, your Amazon pricing can change quickly. Look at the list of inactive ingredients if there are particular ingredients you’re trying to avoid, but the active inegredients on all of these should be the same as the brand name.

    Rachel I absolutely love this . I never thought to check those place for my generic Zyrtec . Not only does SAMs club have it cheap they also carry the children’s cheap as well . I’ve been paying $10 for 45 pills at food 4 less . I thought that was a good deal. Thanks so much for this post . Talk about huge savings

    You have to keep checking on Amazon because a lot of these will get
    free shipping. What is nice is not having to chase deals- Kirkland also has a
    great equivalent to Zantac.

    Did you know that you don’t have to be a member of Costco or Sam’s Club to use their pharmacy? And you can get your pet prescriptions filled there too.
