Search for Phones

We have about a month and a half before we need to seriously start searching for our new cell phones.

The two year contract will be up, and it will time for another one.

That means new phones with a new plan for all of us.

The phone selection is a bit intimidating.

Smart phone or "dumb" phone.

Smart is expensive and it needs an expensive plan to go with it.

"Dumb" has only one or two to select from, and they are really dumb.

Not even as nice as the ones we got two years ago - more like the ones we got four years ago.

And each time, the phones seem more fragile - they certainly aren't lasting the two years like they used to.

Oh the choices - not looking forward to this time around as we have the last ones.

Walgreens to the Rescue

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

We love our local Walgreens - they have the best deals on just about everything we need for our health.

And we are not alone - the parking lot is always full whenever we go there.

But there are many customers who have become quite frustrated with the terms that Walgreens and Express Scripts now have.

For years they have been able to get their prescriptions at their local store.

They could go whenever they could fit in the time and the local pharmacist knows them.

They know that they could rely on the pharmacist to make them aware of any interactions in their medicines.

They would take the time to answer questions, and best of all, they know them by name.

Express Scripts, who covers many prescription plans, will no longer be doing business with Walgreens, which means these customers cannot get the service they are used to.

They are confused and upset and very worried.

To help them, a Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens is another alternative that Walgreens is offering to it's customers.

They are offering special discounts on these memberships to help even further.

Concerned customers can contact their local media to let them know what's happening and how they feel.

This action also affects the military as Tricare, the prescription provider for them, is a client of Express Scripts.
