The pharmacy discount has been widely used by co-ops that are members of Touchstone Energy Cooperatives, resulting in combined savings of more than $20 million on prescriptions nationwide.

As of June 30, members of South Carolina co-ops have saved $2,898,310.91 since the Co-op Connections card was introduced in 2007. That includes about $180,000 saved by members of Horry Electric Cooperative.
