This post reveals my analysis result about the SingleCare reviews from actual users. This article also shares my findings on the major benefits you can enjoy by using the SingleCare service. You can also find the popularity trend of their service over the past 5 years. Let’s first find out SingleCare.
What is SingleCare?
SingleCare’s trademark product is a discount card for prescription drugs. They started their mission since 2014 to help millions of Americans by providing a better way to save on their prescriptions. The pharmacy savings card is free to use, and they claim that there are no hidden fees or obligations. SingleCare does not have anything to do with insurance.

There is no complicated procedure to benefit from SingleCare. All you need is a single SingleCare card. You bring the card to any partnered pharmacies and show the card to get a discount. SingleCare says that they have boasts a network of 35,000 pharmacies in the U.S. And, you can enjoy up to 80% on around 50,000 types of drugs. Before you pay at one of the partnered pharmacies, you can ask the staff to process your prescription using the BIN and PCN number on your saving card.

Where can’t you use it?
As just mentioned, you can use the card at many pharmacies. Currently, you cannot use the card on the dental, eye, doctor visit, in-patient surgery, hospitalization, emergency medical services, or oncology services.
How Actual Buyers Think About SingleCare?
When you consider to buy a product or to use a service, you will wonder how other actual buyers think about it. That is very natural and wise behavior because by gathering the information, you can make a better decision. If they are dissatisfied with it, they won’t recommend it. If they are happy, they will leave positive comments and speak positive things about it. If we can combine and summarize those comments, we will have great knowledge of the actual quality of the product, which will lead to a better decision.
That’s what I am going to do for you. I used more than 500 reviews people left on TrustPilot and summarized those data to generate pretty graphs and charts. Those visuals will allow you to understand the overall sentiments the customers had toward SingleCare service and discount cards. They are also extremely easy to understand.
SingleCare Positive Word Cloud
In a word cloud, some words will appear bigger because those specific words were more frequently used among customers. So, the bigger the more frequent, thus, if those big words are positive, it proves that most of the customers had a positive experience. Have a look at the word cloud of SingleCare.
The word cloud above should have given you a good impression on SingleCare. The most frequent word that actual customers used in their reviews was “great”. Other big words are also positive – “saved”, “good”, “easy”, “best”, “helped”, “discount”, and many more. Just by looking at the word cloud, we can learn that most of the people were satisfied with the product.
The word cloud tells you what descriptive words people used for the product. There is another angle we can use to understand the SingleCare customer reviews. That is by categorizing the reviews into a type of 10 sentiments. While I used the review titles for the word cloud above, I used the review contents for the sentiment analysis. The result is the graph below.
I was able to run my sentiment analysis code to find out what specific sentiments people had over the product. As we could guess from the word cloud, most of the review contents were positive. Of course, there were negative contents. I haven’t seen any review that is all positive. Despite the negative reviews, overall, people wrote positive reviews contents for the product.
Another type of analysis I often use for a product review is using Google Trend. It is an extremely helpful service by Google that gives you a historical Google search trend. My idea is that if a product or a company can maintain or can increase its search volume over many years, it supports the quality of the product. If a product is bad, people won’t show their interest and eventually will never search for the product anymore. Then, how is the trend of SingleCare?
The trend line above shows quite a firm movement over the past 5 years. This proves that people have shown a consistent interest in the product for a long period of time. Notice that this is a US trend and the level of interest varies by state. If we break the trend down by state:
Find the list icon at the right bottom and click it, it will turn the map into a country rank. The ranking shows that the biggest interest came from Mississippi followed by Oklahoma, South Carolina, Alabama, and Arkansas. Although states showed a different amount of interest, there was not a huge gap, which I sometimes witnessed when I review other products. This means that SingleCare has been recognized by most of the states.
Discount for the Top 10 Prescription Drugs
In this section, we will find out the most popular prescription medications in the U.S. And, I will use the list to give you an idea of how much discount you can get from the Single Care card.
