A Nice End to A Nice Day . . .

I spent the morning trying to finish up some last minute stuff on the new website I’m doing for a client.

But part of that time was spent reminding the client he’d already approved some things and can’t go back and start changing them without incurring some extra costs.

Jan and I headed out for dinner and shopping a little after 4pm. As we were leaving the park I got this photo of where the new RV sites are going up here at the Lake Conroe TT.

Lake Conroe TT - New Sites

Supposedly it’s going to have 67 sites with concrete roads and concrete pads, and should be finished sometime in August. We’ll see.

The area is just to the right of the guard shack as you come down the hill entering the park.

We had planned to eat at the Asian BBQ & Grill, but as we got there we remembered that they close at 3pm after lunch and don’t reopen for dinner until 5. So since we didn’t want to wait for 30-40 minutes, we drove back across the Interstate and went to Jason’s Deli, another place we really like.

Jan had her usual 1/4 Turkey Muffaletta with a cup of the Broccoli Cheese Soup,

while I got the Small Rueben and a bowl of their Southwest Chicken Chili.

The Rueben didn’t turn out to be all that small. Wonder how big the regular one is?

Our next stop was to get gas at the Sam’s Club station for $1.93. Not bad. Not bad at all.

Then it was into Sam’s for a couple of things, and to pick up our prescriptions. I got a text Monday evening telling us they were ready, and that the total for the 4 would be $351.56.

Now I might have been upset at this, but I knew what had happened. Because they’d done it before. They hadn’t priced them under my Sam’s Club Business Plus Card.

Most people know about Wal-Mart’s $4/$10 prescription discount list, but it seems most people don’t know about Sam’s Club’s Extra Value Prescription List.

And the Sam’s list has a lot of drugs on it that Wal-Mart doesn’t. And more expensive ones, at that.

And when I got to the Pharmacy, that turned out to be the case. My two prescriptions were price correctly,  but they hadn’t Jan’s correctly. And it made a BIG difference.

One of Jan’s was $45 and the other one, Anastrozole, that she takes as a breast cancer preventitive, was priced at $270.56. But when the clerk ran it under our Business Plus Card, they dropped down to $24 each.

There are two things different about the Sam’s Club list. Just like the Wal-Mart  one, it’s $4 for a 30 day supply. But unlike Wal-Mart’s, it’s not $10 for 90 days worth, but $12. Still not bad.

The other thing different is that it costs a little extra. The regular Sam’s Club membership is $69 per year, but the Business Plus membership is $99 a year. So $30 more.

But I saved over 8 times that $30, just on1 prescription today. You can go to the Sam’s Club website and download a copy of their list. Then look it over and see what you can save.

You might be surprised.

You can upgrade your regular card at any time by going to the Customer Service desk and paying the prorated upgrade charge.

Check it out.

Next it was on to the Wal-Mart right next door for a bunch of stuff and then home with quick stop at the Culver’s across the street for a couple of sundaes.

Nice end to a nice day.

Thought for the Day: 

You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
