Here’s what you need to do to use a GoodRx coupon to save on a non-prescription product:
- Get a doctor’s prescription. Though you do not need a prescription to buy these products, you will need a prescription from a doctor to receive the GoodRx discount.
(Doctors often write prescriptions for these products. Just call your doctor’s office and have them call or fax in the prescription to your pharmacy.)
- Get a GoodRx coupon. Just look up the item you want to buy on GoodRx. Then, print, email or text yourself the appropriate coupon. Even better – download our free mobile app which has coupons built right in.
- Go to the pharmacy counter, not the cash register. Your pharmacist will locate and set aside this product for you. Many of these products are kept behind the pharmacist’s counter; if not, the pharmacist can help you find the right product and apply the coupon. Do NOT take your GoodRx coupon to the regular cashier at the front of the store – they won’t be able to apply it to your purchase.
GoodRx discounts will often help you save, but also be sure to look for other store promotions. If you find a lower price without a GoodRx coupon for your product, use that instead. There’s no commitment to using GoodRx; we just want you to find the maximum savings so you can stay healthy.
Please note: Discounts for over-the-counter prescriptions are accepted at the pharmacist's discretion; unlike regular prescription discounts, pharmacies are not obligated to honor discounts for over-the-counter medications and supplies.
