I have been living in Panama for over three years and just recently discovered a way to instantly save 20% on medications at the pharmacy. Here is how:

I needed to purchase some more allergy medicine so I headed to the pharmacy at Super 99 to restock. I asked for Nasonex and noticed there was a discount applied to the price on the receipt. I didn’t ask the cashier why there was a discount – I thought it was either my lucky day or Nasonex was on sale. But I became curious. Were other medications on sale besides Nasonex?

I did a quick search on Google and found my answer: Every Wednesday the entire pharmacy at Super 99 is 20% off!


Apparently I have never shopped at Super 99’s pharmacy on a Wednesday. I told a few people about the promotion and they weren’t aware of it either so I’m not sure if this is something that is well known. Anyway, if you need any medications or vitamins in Panama wait until Wednesday to get them and receive a 20% discount!
