Miami-Dade County and the National Association of Counties offer a free discount card which they say offers savings averaging 24 percent of the retail price of prescription drugs. It can be used by those without prescription drug insurance, for drugs not covered by your insurance and on some pet medications. There are no restrictions regarding age, income or pre-existing conditions. Print a card here or pick one up at county facilities including libraries, commission offices and service centers.

You’ve likely noticed that Facebook has changed what posts show in your feed. Since the change, updates from pages I “like” and those from quite a few of my friends have all but disappeared.

If you want to make sure you don’t miss a deal, the most dependable way to get updates is to subscribe to our daily update via e-mail. That way, whatever Facebook does, you’ll still get the scoop.

If you want Miami on the Cheap’s Facebook posts (or any page’s posts) to show in your Facebook feed, you’ll need to take action. You have a few options:

  • Mark as a Top Story: Scroll through your feed, find any recent post by Miami on the Cheap, and mark it as a Top Story. You can mark it by hovering in the top-left corner of the post & clicking the blue triangle or by choosing “Mark as a Top Story” in the drop-down menu in the upper-right corner of the post. Repeat. You’ll need to do this multiple times, as it takes a while for Facebook to learn.
  • Like/Comment/Share a Post: Facebook’s algorithm seems to favor pages you interact with. If you can’t find Miami on the Cheap in your feed at all, you won’t be able to mark anything as a Top Story. To get it to start showing in your feed, you’ll need to go to Miami on the Cheap’s Facebook page, pick a post and “like” it, post a comment, or share the post. Repeat every day or so until Facebook believes that you like us and mixes us into your feed. Once you start seeing the posts, mark a couple as a Top Story to keep them in your feed.
  • Create a list. Once you’re on Facebook.com, look at the left sidebar. You’ll see categories like “Favorites,” “Groups,” “Apps,” and “Lists.” Hover to the right of the word “Lists,” and click “More.” Choose “Create a List” and make a category for whatever group of pages you wish to keep tabs on. Once you name it, Facebook will prompt you to add friends. When you click through, it’ll default to your Friends’ list, but you can switch it to your pages by clicking on “Friends” and selecting “Pages” from the list. Then you can scroll through your list of pages and check the ones you’d like to populate the list.

If that seems too complicated, you can always bypass Facebook and subscribe to our daily update via e-mail or subscribe with a feed reader.
