Clay Electric Co-op members have saved $100,000 on prescription drugs

KEYSTONE HEIGHTS, FL – One hundred thousand dollars in savings! That’s how much members of Clay Electric Cooperative have saved by using their Co-op Connections Cards to buy prescription drugs since May 2012.

Clay Electric introduced the Connections Card program to its members in the spring of 2012 as a way to add value to being a member of the cooperative.

The Co-op Connections Card is a national discount card program that is free to Clay Electric members and offers special discounts and deals from local and national businesses. One valuable feature of the Co-op Connections card is the pharmacy discount.

While it is not insurance and cannot be combined with insurance, the discount can mean savings of 10 to 85 percent on prescription drugs. The card is recognized at many national, regional and local pharmacies. The pharmacy discount has been widely used by members of electric cooperatives across the country that participate in the Connections Card program, and they’ve seen a combined savings of more than $64 million on prescriptions.

Besides the pharmacy discounts, more than 200 local and national businesses offer a variety of discounts on their products and services that are available to Connections Card holders. A list of these local vendors and the discount deals they offer are available on Clay Electric’s website. Local and national vendors are available at the website connections.coop.

“We’re excited that our members are benefiting from the Connections Card and that they’ve reached this milestone in prescriptions savings,” said Derick Thomas, director of Clay’s Member & Public Relations Department. “Our Connections Card is one of the benefits of being served by Clay Electric. We’re glad our members are taking advantage of it.”

Members who would like to receive a Connections card can email their request to connectionscard@clayelectric.com. They should include their name, account number and mailing address.
