Date:1/12/2009

BENTONVILLE, Ark., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Sam's Club is hosting a Pharmacy Challenge and Savings Checkup in all of its locations through January 31 where consumers can check prices on their prescriptions and over-the-counter medications against other retailers. Sam's Club guarantees it will beat any competitor price on branded prescriptions. Membership is not required to use a Sam's Club pharmacy.

"Your Healthy Year" promotes a variety of ways consumers can improve their wellness in 2009 whether their goals include weight loss, adjusted spending on pharmaceuticals, additional exercise, reconnecting with loved ones, time management, organization and more," said Todd Matherly, vice president, Health and Wellness, Sam's Club. "We want to help our members and families not familiar with our Pharmacy program or our health and wellness products and services to reach their goals, and discover ways to reduce their costs."

Make Medical Health a Must

In a recent survey conducted by Sam's Club, 70 percent of respondents reported they will seek new ways to maintain personal health and wellness in 2009. In addition, 41 percent indicated price was a key factor in selecting a health and wellness resource, with convenience and product selection also playing an important role.

Aspire to be the Biggest Loser

An overwhelming majority of survey respondents (nearly 70 percent) cited eating healthier, well balanced meals as a primary wellness goal in the New Year. With any diet and exercise program, consumers should consult a Health Care professional before beginning any endeavor.

Live Active; Sleep Well

According to the survey, 49 percent would like to turn occasional workouts into everyday habits in the New Year as well. Sam's Club is a destination for workout and exercise equipment and inspiration, including New Balance Tennis Shoes, MP3 players, Epic Treadmills, Epic Ellipticals and Bio Force Home Gyms.

Sort, Straighten and Stock

More than half (53 percent) of respondents noted "organization" as a top 2009 wellness goal but many are unsure of steps they can take to clear their mind and the clutter in the year ahead. Sam's Club offers organizational solutions -- from smart storage solutions to extensive closet accessories and bulk supplies such as Member's Mark Jumbo Paper Towels and Bath Tissue. Organization is crucial to productivity, and it's easy to get on track with some clear direction and discounted supplies.
