4.0 DISCOUNT STORE-BRAND MEDICINE SAVES ALMOST HALF; COMPARISON SHOPPING
I have been using the Kmart store-brand "American Fare" over-the-counter medicine brand for years. I have been very happy with the quality and saved a lot of money at the same time. I prefer this store-brand medicine as a group to all others that I have tried.
Just about every well known national brand drug was also available in the Kmart brand for about half the price. The "American Fare" brand offers a full money-back guarantee.
we prefer the Kmart brand, we believe that you will find similar savings on store-brands
at drug-store chains. If the ingredients of the national-brand match the ingredients of
the store-brand, there is a good chance that the medicines are virtually identical. If you
don't like the store-brand medicine, many stores will let you return the medicine for a
full refund. Check the store's return policy.
