I stopped going to Walgreens years ago due to extreme lack of customer service and huge delays in filling prescriptions. However, my spouse continues to accept retail abuse from this place. All of his prescriptions are filled here.
I went there yesterday with him as he needed to purchase two non-prescription items which were on sale. The cashier rang the items up and the sale price did not register. Now Walgreens has a new program...you must have a Walgreens shopper card to get sale prices. So easy...just enter your phone number and presto!
He entered his phone number. Since my husband is a Walgreens pharmacy customer up popped his address and date of birth.
It seems that the shopper card is coordinated with the customer's pharmacy information.
Is this an invasion of privacy? Yes it is. A customer's pharmacy information should remain in the pharmacy and not in Walgreens central data system.
So beware if you use Walgreens pharmacy. Walgreens obviously uses your personal information for other than prescription purchases.
