Default Do you check prices ?

I can't believe it. I purchased a few items from the local major pharmacy this evening and was checking my receipt.

Vitamin E 100 capsules --- 17.39
Safety coated aspirin 100 tablets-- 7.49

I looked online at the prices at the local big store.

Vitamin E 100 capsules -- 3.81
Safety coated aspirin 125 tablets -- 2.58

Not even close so I'm taking what I bought back. I expected a little price difference but this is ridiculous. Probably happens a lot on items you don't buy that often. This stuff was the same strength and the aspirin bottle has 25 more tablets for a cheaper price.

Do you check prices ?

Try this one too. Sometimes cheaper than copay. I've used them for years.
