I recently had to buy antibiotics from a regular chemist. It wasn’t till later that I realised how much I had forked over for said antibiotics as I was a) not thinking straight and b) just really grateful for the medication. These ones cost me $22.10.
Well, my second round of the same antibiotics I got from Chemist Warehouse, my usual chemist of choice, and they came in at $6.10.
I was flabbergasted. And further committed to Chemist Warehouse.
I’ve been seeking out Chemist Warehouse over other chemists for years now. It’s my go to for prescriptions and if I can get something at Chemist Warehouse, such as vitamins, electric toothbrush heads, makeup, soaps, body lotions or deodorants, I will go to them over Priceline or Coles as their prices are regularly cheaper.
For example, Priceline and Chemist Warehouse both stock the following makeup brands: Revlon, Maybelline and Rimmel. And unless Priceline happens to be having a sale on, the price difference on the same item is remarkable.
Priceline: Revlon ColorStay Natural Makeup $39.95
Chemist Warehouse: Revlon ColorStay Natural Makeup $33.69
That difference in money is a coffee and muffin deal! Or a delicious Saigon Roll… yum yum… anyway! I digress. Chemist Warehouse has saved me a lot of money over the years. Especially if I can resist popping extra stuff into my basket when browsing as I wait for my scripts to be filled.
Bonus tip: If you happen to have an Entertainment Book, there are a few $10 off vouchers for Chemist Warehouse that you can use with an over $50 purchase (excluding prescriptions). I got a huge kick out of ringing up a $51 purchase and then only paying $41 for the lot! SCORE!!
