Below is a link with a bunch of responses about another similar network - detailing the issues and risks of using an unsolicited card. I know I used another one before changing insurances and it saved up to 90% off some prescriptions - but that was one provided by a professional association I belong to and fully vetted and does not sell customer info.

With an unsolicited card, you risk that it is a scam - google the card name combined with the word"complaints" or "scam" to see reports on how legit it is. Yours must be pretty new (maybe same provider, new name because people wised up to the old one) because I see very few hits and basically zero reviews on pharmacy review sites.


Just bear in mind - if they sent it to you, rather than you researching it and seeking them out, figure it is at least as good a deal for them as for you - and there is the risk it is a scheme to collect personal into for sale to database brokers. You could also ask your pharmacy and/or doctor if they have heard of it and have any thoughts.


There are also some out there that charge higher than market rates on prescriptions, and get a percentage kickback from the pharmacy - so you could end up paying MORE with the card. Also, most pharmacies will NOT honor a discount card that is cheaper than the payment amount covered by your health insurance plan - crooked to my way of thinking, but that is the way it is. For instance, our cost on several maintenance prescriptions went UP over 100% when we changed insurance providers.
