Rite Aid is the third largest national drugstore chain. It operates more than 4900 stores in 31 states. Rite Aid offers a wonderful Wellness+ Card and online video coupons called Rite Aid Ad Perks. Rite Aid sales run Sunday-Saturday, with the exception of Southern California stores, whose ad cycles run Friday-Thursday.
Here are a few tips for shopping at Rite Aid:
1) You will need to sign up for the free Rite Aid Wellness+ card at the register at any Rite Aid store. Each time you shop, you will need to hand your Wellness+ card to the cashier; once the card is scanned you will be eligible for the monthly and weekly deals!
2) Rite Aid also features weekly in-ad coupons, found in the weekly sales circular in the Sunday paper, or near the entrance of your local Rite Aid store; store coupons will always begin with the sequence RC49 preceding the numerals under the bar-code. Rite Aid coupon policy calls these “Rite Aid Manufacturer Coupons”.
3) Rite Aid Video Values, otherwise known as adperk videos, which are short commercial videos that you may watch at: http://riteaid.adperk.com/. After watching each video, a coupon will be added to your rewards account, which you can print immediately or save for up to one-two months; these coupons truly help lower the total for purchases each week.
Video Values coupons can only be printed and redeemed once.
4) Rite Aid also features +UP Rewards, coupons which print on your receipts which act like cash towards your next purchase. Weekly ads are generally full of offers for these promotions. +Up Rewards should given to the cashier last in any transaction, will not cover sales tax, and will not nullify any rolling deals or previous promotions.
-These rewards will be automatically loaded to your Wellness card, but I would recommend opting to print the +Up Reward. Your cashier can do this for you at checkout. Just tell your cashier that you’d like to opt out of the Load2Card +Up Rewards and you’d like to receive printed +Up Rewards for you.
-Rite Aid’s +Up Rewards typically have limits, and limits will be printed at the bottom of your receipt.
-+Up Rewards may be redeemed on any item in the store, even a gallon of milk (exclusions include prescriptions, tobacco, alcohol, and lottery tickets).
-Multiple +Up Rewards can be redeemed in one shopping order as long as the total value of +Up Rewards does not make the subtotal drop below zero.
-+Up Rewards generally will “roll”, from transaction to transaction.
– +Up Rewards can be redeemed starting at 6:00 a.m. on the day after it was earned, and will expire 14 days after it was issued.
5) Rite Aid coupon policy allows customer to stack coupons, as the total of the coupons is equal to or less than the price of the product, before sales tax. At Rite Aid you can stack three coupons, but no more than three coupons, for a single item, for example:
-one “48” Rite Aid Valuable coupon,
-one “49” Rite Aid Manufacturer coupon, and
-one “5” Manufacturer coupon can be used on a single item.
6) Rite Aid limits shoppers to no more than four identical coupons in one shopping order. Quantities depend on the store manager’s sole discretion.
7) You cannot stack a buy-one-get-one free coupon with a buy-one-get-one free promotion; only one coupon can be used for each pair of items purchased.
8) Apps like Endorse, iBotta, Register Hog, and Jingit will accept purchases and receipts from Rite Aid stores.
-Please note, like with all other stores, I recommend printing a copy of Rite Aid’s Corporate Store Coupon Policy, at the link provided below, keep it in your coupon binder, and take it with you each time you shop at Rite Aid:
