8. Via the mail
I first use pharmacychecker.com to find out who has the cheapest prices for a particular med.
http://www.pharmacychecker.com

Then, I fish around the pharmacy's website to find their physical address, license number, phone number, chief pharmacist's name, etc.

Finally, confirm they are a legit licensed pharmacy using napra.org (National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities).
http://www.napra.org

If they are legit, I order.
