5:26 PM PST on January 19, 2012

    Despite ads on MTA buses, a story in the LA Times, and some local news coverage, most people in LA don't know that the city has brokered a deal to save you up to 40% on prescription drugs. Simply print out or download this card, and use it in retail pharmacies citywide (about 1,500 total). You'll save money on various prescription drugs thanks to the deal brokered by Mayor Villaraigosa in 2009, fulfilling a campaign promises. Do you use LARx? Let us know in the comments. Here's some info direct from the site:


    Simply present your card at a participating retail pharmacy in the County of Los Angeles and save on many of your prescription drugs. It is that easy. No enrollment form, no membership fee, available for immediate use.

    No Limits

    You may use your savings card any time. There are no restrictions and no limits on how many times you may use your card.

    For Everyone

    Our card is available for use by you, your family, and your friends. If you do not have insurance that covers prescriptions, this card may save you dollars on all your prescription needs. And even if you have a prescription card through your medical insurance plan, you can use this savings card for prescriptions not covered by your current carrier to help save you money.

    Thanks to Reddit LA for letting us know about this.
