nikad said:this is true, and even if you do not have a prescription almost anything can be bought at full price which is a lot cheaper than in the US
hmmm full price is not the same as foreign price.... foreign price is... foreign price! ( generally for this discounts you gotta be paying in cash, so if you get charged in dollars per atm withdrawal you might wanna ponder that as well )steveinbsas said:If you talk like a local you can get a 20% discount at some of the small neighborhood pharmacies. It isn't always necessary to pay the full (foreigner) price.
steveinbsas said:Of course the discount is only given if you pay in cash. Regarding drugs in pharmacies, is there really a difference between "full" and "foreign" price? The retail/list price is the full price (isn't it?). I always ask "the price" first and then ask how much it will cost with the discount...as if I expect it. Do you think foreigners are charged even more than the "full" price in the first place?
I get charged in dollars for my ATM withdrawals by my US bank because I have a dollar account there. I don't see what that has got to do with the price of drugs in Argentina. Please explain.
