Of course this is a step in the right direction. The vast majority of generic medications are bought in bulk for pennies a pill. Marking them up to $4 a prescription is still a hefty profit for Wal-Mart. However, try ordering these drugs from Wal-Mart mail order pharmacy.
Oh nevermind, they don’t offer discounts in their mail order pharmacy.
The sole purpose of these “discount programs” is to get you in the store so you buy massive amounts of other poorly made, cheap crap from Wal-Mart. They “discount” these drugs and still mark them up 1000%. Meanwhile, the Walgreens down the street is marking up generics 4000%.
