Friends, discount department stores consistently have lower pricing on brand name OTC medications than drug store chains and supermarkets. On average you can save 20% and up to 39% in some instances at Target and Walmart. For even deeper discounts on brand name OTC medications shop the whole sale clubs. In most cases the savings can be substantially better than Target and Walmart. Take Airborne for example, at Walmart it sells for $6.09 for 10 tablets. Sam's Club sells a pack of 30 tablets for $14.27 which comes out to be $4.82 for 10 tablets. That is quite a difference that can add up over the course of time.

Below I have listed the pricing of some popular OTC medications and their prices at Sam's Club. To the right find the retail prices of the same drugs at either Walmart or Target. Compare for yourself.

For even deeper discounts price the custom label brands. Compare the ingredients to the brand name medication. Most of the time you will find that the custom label store brand is identical to the national brand medication. For now happy shopping!
