How to buy prescription drugs online in Canada?

My grandfather who lives in Cuba has Alzheimer. His treatment requires Donepezil, a prescription drug almost impossible to acquire in Cuba.

I live in Canada; and I put myself to the task of acquiring this medicine for him. The main issue is that Canadian pharmacies require a medical prescription in order to dispense Donepezil. So, I asked my family in Cuba to email me a scanned copy of my grandfather Donepezil’s prescription.

After this, I went online and found CanadaDrugs.com; which is an online Canadian pharmacy. This pharmacy is accredited by BBB, CIPA, PharmacyChecker.com, MIPA and HealthPricer.com. These accreditations give CanadaDrugs.com credibility; letting you know that this pharmacy is legal and not another Internet fraud.

I registered online with CanadaDrugs.com and placed an order of Donepezil. I paid with Credit Card, but there are other methods of payment from which you can choose.

After I placed my order, I had to email them my grandfather’s prescription. CanadaDrugs.com accepts prescriptions written by international licensed physicians, preferably in English or Spanish, but they can also translate prescriptions from most other languages.

To be considered valid all prescriptions must contain the following (I know this because I asked them by email prior to placing my order):
  • Prescribing doctor's contact information (i.e. doctor’s first and last name, clinic name and address, fax number, phone number and email address if possible)
  • Patient's name
  • Date prescription was written
  • Medication name
  • Strength
  • Directions for use
  • Dispensing amount
  • Refills
  • Doctor's signature  
CanadaDrugs.com will run some validation on the information provided and if all is ok, then the prescription drug will be mailed to you by postal mail. It took me around a week to get the Donepezil pills that I bought for my grandpa.

I am really glad with the service provided by CanadaDrugs.com. I have placed only one order with them so far, but the purchase process was straightforward and clean. I am planning on refilling my grandpa’s Donepezil pills with CanadaDrugs.com in the near future.

CanadaDrugs.com has also a Referral Reward Program in place. This program seeks to spread the word about the services provided by CanadaDrugs.com by giving money incentives to their customers.

What’s in it for me? If I refer you, I will get 5% of the value of every single order that you place.

What’s in it for you? You will get a 25% discount on your first purchase if you are referred by an active customer of CanadaDrugs.com.  

Let me say it in a different way, if you are not referred, you will have to pay 100% of the price of your first order; but if you are referred by an active customer, you will get a 25% discount; that is, you will be paying only 75% of the original price.

I am an active customer of CanadaDrugs.com; so, I can refer you. Yes, I am making a few bucks if I refer you, but please, note that I am a serious person and I wouldn’t recommend a crappy service just to earn a few dollars.

If you want to place an order through CanadaDrugs.com and you want to save 25% on your first order; then register yourself online by filling this online form

At the end of that form, you will notice that the Referrer's Name is pre-filled with Roberto Osvaldo Alvarez Arias (that’s the name of my grandpa) and the Referrer's Referral Number is pre-filled with 2830871. You must leave that information right there, if you want to be referred by me, hence getting a 25% discount on your first purchase.

Once you have completed your first purchase; you can also refer your friends, family and whoever might be interested in buying through CanadaDrugs.com. This will reward you with some referral money and also, it will help the people you refer to get a 25% discount on their first purchase.

Finally, I want to stress the fact that I recommend CanadaDrugs.com because of the quality and seriousness of their business. I am not doing this just to earn the referral money. The referral money is a nice perk, but the real value is in the simplicity and transparency of buying medicine through CanadaDrugs.com.

How to open a checking account at Tangerine?

Everything at Tangerine is done online… opening a checking account is no different: you can do it in 10 minutes (at the most) from the comfort of your home computer while you are in your pajamas. What I have found so far about Tangerine (formerly ING DIRECT) is that all procedures can be done with an extreme simplicity and from the comfort of your home.

Tangerine calls its checking account: Tangerine Checking Account. It was called THRiVE Chequing Account in the times when the bank was called  ING DIRECT.

Most checking accounts in Canadian banking institutions charge you a monthly fee. This is ridiculous if you ask me: banks are profiting from our own money, but that’s not enough for them: they still charge us a monthly fee for having our own money within their grasp, money from which they are profiting already.

This is what a Tangerine Checking Account has to offer:
  • NO MONTHLY FEES. Ask yourself if your current bank charges you a monthly fee and ask yourself if you should be paying for it?
  • Unlimited transitions: once again, you can perform unlimited transitions at Tangerine for free.
  • Earn interest on the money you put on your Tangerine Checking Account (yes, you heard well: this is a checking account that pays interest, just as saving accounts do).
I am not going to load you with more details…if you want to know more about the benefits of opening a Tangerine Checking Account come here: http://www.tangerine.ca/en/chequing/chequing-account/index.html.

Now, in order to open a Tangerine Checking Account you have to do only TWO things:
  1. Complete an online form that won’t take you more than 10 minutes. I am not exaggerating: this form won’t take you more than 10 minutes to fill. In order to fill the form click here: Open a new Tangerine Checking Account.
  2. Write your initial deposit cheque (payable to yourself) for at least $100, and mail it to Tangerine Bank, 3389 Steeles Avenue East, Toronto, Ontario, M2H 3S8. Note: all new clients of Tangerine opening accounts for at least $100 bucks get a $50 bonus. What does this means? It means that you open your account with $100, but you are credited with $150; so Tangerine welcomes you with $50 bucks.
That’s all: by completing the two steps above you will open a Tangerine Checking Account, that will treat you with unlimited transactions, no monthly fees, saving interests and a $50 bucks welcome gift.
