New Online Community Offers Savings and Advice to Help People Lead Better, Healthier Lives During Tough Times

Encourages Consumers to Share Community With Others Who May Benefit From Savings

ALEXANDRIA, VA--(Marketwire - April 13, 2010) - As the American economy struggles, people are more interested than ever in new ways to save money. To help individuals get the most for their hard earned dollars, the creators of the Together Rx Access® prescription savings program are launching TogetherONE™, an online savings community. TogetherONE, which is free and open to everyone, encourages communication among community members who can share tips on how to make the most of a budget, find new uses for household items, and learn ways to save on prescription medicines, groceries and other items they may need for a healthy life.

Visitors to TogetherONE.com can search for savings offers and coupons by region, read budgeting tips, and share savings ideas that range from planning a fun, affordable night with the family to celebrating a birthday with a party that won't break the bank. 

"Over the past five years, we have spoken with countless individuals about Together Rx Access. These hardworking Americans -- in addition to expressing a need for prescription savings -- have voiced an interest in other programs or options to help them make ends meet and improve their health and quality of life," shared Roba Whiteley, executive director, Together Rx Access. "For this reason, we see tremendous value in expanding the savings conversation beyond prescription medicines to other aspects of daily living. By creating the TogetherONE online community, we are connecting people who share a desire to save money, help others, and live better, healthier lives."

TogetherONE makes it easy for individuals to find savings information for all of their needs -- groceries, health, entertainment and lifestyle -- all in one place. Because saving money in this economy is so important, community members have the opportunity to inform family and friends that additional help is available.
