Yep. It’s that time of year again. You hear about people growing out of allergies. Well, I grew into mine. In my late twenties, I had a severe reaction while touring the Gettysburg battlegrounds with my husband on our anniversary. I’ve never been the same since. After getting tested, I found that I’m allergic to dust, mold, ragweed and worst of all – pollen. My allergies are the worst in the Spring and early Summer causing sneezing, running nose and seasonal conjunctivitis. Aint nobody got time for that!
I’ve tried natural remedies, but medication is the only thing that helps. So I visited the new microsite from Allegra and CVS, myallergenius.com and I was immediately surprised by how bright and cheery the site was. I loved the pinwheel and the bold colors. The next thing I noticed was the ‘Save’ tab, so I clicked it, then I registered to receive email updates in order to access the $4 off adult and $2 off children’s Allegra coupons. The email updates will get you additional savings, allergy tips, product news, and bonus offers from Allegra partners. Unfortunately, my Mac and those coupon printer applets don’t get along, so I was unable to obtain them.
Before leaving the site, I registered to receive pollen alerts. You can choose to be alerted via text or by email; I chose email. I’ve been getting the ‘high pollen” alerts every few days. It’s nice to get this little reminder, and it also serves as a take-your-medicine reminder, too.
So I went to CVS without any coupons in hand but with some information on my mind. CVS is offering a sale currently for $6 off Allegra 45ct and $9.99 for Allegra Children’s tablets or liquid. Sale prices are valid through 5/31 if you have a CVS Extra Care card. If you don’t, I would recommend getting one as it enables you to save on all sorts of items.
I may kid about my allergies, but when they’re bad, they are seriously debilitating to me. I love being outdoors, gardening, and playing outside with my kids. I’ve had to leave functions and ruin a good time for everybody, and there’s nothing worse than disappointing your kids. But I’ve learned how to manage my allergies by taking medication, avoiding outdoor activities when the pollen is in full force, by cleaning HVAC filters frequently and by showering and drying my hair before bed. These tips really do help us allergy sufferers.
