Milpitas, CA, United States, 2010/12/06 - Mobile advertising is still in its infancy. However, mobile device is unique as an advertising channel. It is personal, always on, and permanently carried. More and more companies are incorporating this new mass media into their marketing strategy.
SigmaPhone, LLC, the developer of iPharmacy, the #1 paid iPhone medical app on the App Store, has partnered with Honest Discounts to offer iPharmacy app users savings of up to 75% on their prescription.
iPharmacy is available on the App Store and Android Market. The discount card inside the app is displayed by tapping on “Rx Card” tab. The card has been pre-activated, and it is accepted by thousands of pharmacies in the US. With this discount card, the app user can save up to 75% off the original price on his/her prescription. To receive the discount, simply show the card to the pharmacist at any of the participating pharmacies.
Honest Discounts (honestdiscounts.com) provides anyone 10-75% off all FDA approved medications at over 54,000 pharmacies nationwide including major retail chains like CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Wal-Mart, and Target. Honest Discounts’ free prescription savings card has helped thousands of people save money across the country and provides a great price comparison tool based on the consumers location.
“More than 50 million Americans are without health insurance and millions more have plans that don’t cover prescriptions. People want convenient savings and information. We provide both with this partnership.
“Partnering with SigmaPhone was a very natural step for us. Moving into the mobile space is really important for us and it didn’t take long to set the vision for this partnership and execute. It’s simple. People who use the iPharmacy application are making important decisions about their prescription medications and we want to make the purchase of those medications cheaper!” says Honest Discounts Chief Card Giver, Chris Jacobs.
The discount card is ideal for anyone who has no health insurance, no prescription coverage, or high co-pay.
