Feb. 17, 2016

REC members have surpassed $2 million in prescription savings by using the Co-op Connections card. Best of all, the savings are made available free to all members as a benefit of being an REC member-owner.

"I have prescription insurance, but I needed a medication that was not covered so I used my Co-op Connections card and saved more than I expected," said Dan, an REC member from Thornburg.

With Co-op Connections, REC members save 10 to 85 percent on prescriptions at over 60,000 participating pharmacies including CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Target and many more, including local pharmacies. REC members also have access to discounts on dining, shopping, automotive and much more from local and national businesses who participate in the Co-op Connections program.

"We are always looking out for our members," said Terri Bevers, member solutions analyst and communicator at REC. "We focus on helping members save energy and use energy wisely, but through the Co-op Connections program we're able to partner with local and national businesses to provide discounts on items they purchase and depend on having every day. It's a great benefit for everyone."
