Rite Aid is brought to you by Janel at Good Deal Mama.
First things first, print out and keep the Rite Aid Store Coupon Policy with you at all times, this will help if you run into a confusing situation when you’re in the store or if a cashier isn’t aware of how their promotions work. You’ll be armed and ready!
Wellness Card -
Rite Aid has adapted a new “Club Card” of sorts, similar to the CVS Extra Care Card. Many of the sales listed in the ad and in-store will require that you scan your Wellness Card in order to get the reduced price. There also are a few other benefits to the Wellness Card.
Sign up & Activate your new Wellness Card and you’ll get a $5 off $25 Rite Aid Coupon.
Earn Points everytime you shop.
- Earn 1 point for every $1 you spend on non-prescription purchases.
- Earn 25 points for every prescription you fill.
Additional, everyday Wellness Card benefits include:
- Members-only sale pricing throughout the store
- 10% off Rite Aid Brand products every day5
- 24/7 exclusive access to a pharmacist when you call 1-800-RITEAID
Up Rewards Program (UPR) -
The UP Rewards program is connected to the Wellness Card, if you don’t scan your card you won’t be able to take advantage of these bonus coupon savings. Each week there will be a few items on sale featuring bonus UP Rewards (UPRs). UPRs will print at the bottom of your receipt, again very similar to CVS. They will be varying $ amounts, depending on the deal. You can use these UPRs on anything in the store, with the exception of prescription purchases.
Here is an example of a recent UP Rewards deal:
Gillette Deodorant – 2/$7 with Wellness Card
Use BOGO Gillette Coupon from the 7/1 P&G
Get $4 UPR (Up Rewards) wyb 2
Final Price: FREE + $0.50 Money Maker
If I was typing it out on the blog for you to read, it would look like it does above. If I were talking to you in person and I was telling you about this deal at Rite Aid this is what I would say…
If you go to Rite Aid this week and buy Gillette Deodorant on sale for 2/$7 you’ll get $4 in UPRs - they are like cash and you can spend them on your next shopping trip (or transaction.) It gets even better, if you use the BOGO (Buy One Get One FREE) coupon from the 7/1 Proctor & Gamble Sunday Coupon Insert you’ll end up paying $3.50 and getting back $4 in UPRs for a “Money Maker” of $0.50! Now since it’s not actually cash – I’m hesitant to call it a money maker, but it basically means you are now ahead $0.50 at Rite Aid. I hope that helped!
Single Check Rebates (SCR) -
The Single Check Rebate program works independently from the Wellness Card, and I have a feeling it’s working it’s way off the scene to make room for the programs described above. But for now, they’re actively advertising both programs, so I’ll give you a refresher course on the SCR program as well.
Each week there are items that are offering a rebate when purchased. You can go here each month to see the full list of SCRs available, the dates, stipulations, etc. A couple of things you need to know:
- You can only submit for 1 rebate check per month. This does not mean you can only do one of the rebate deals per month, it just means you can only get 1 check from Rite Aid per month. What I do is wait until the end of each month to request my check so I can be sure there aren’t any other deals I wanted to do.
- You can submit for rebates online, just enter the required details from your store register receipt. The rebate check is CASH that you can deposit right back into your bank account, which I LOVE!
- You CAN use manufacturer’s coupons in conjunction with SCR deals, oftentimes making the deal a Money Maker.
- SCRs have a limited window of availability and they are limited by quantity as well. So make sure you read the dates you can make the purchase between and read how many you qualify to get a rebate check for.
Here is an example of a recent SCR deal:
Blink Tears – $7.99 (Limit 1)
$2/1 Blink Tears or GelTears Lubricating Eye Drops printable
Get $7.99 SCR
Final Price: $2 Money Maker!
Sometimes we also see COMBINED deal with both SCR & UPR promotions like this one…
Huggies, Pull-Ups, and GoodNites – $8.99ea
Get $2 SCR (Limit 1)
Get $1 UPR
$3/1 Huggies Little Movers or Little Snugglers Diapers printable
$1/1 GoodNites Sleep Pants printable
$2/1 Huggies Pull-Ups Training Pants printable
$2/1 Huggies Pull-ups Training Pants, exp. 6-12-10 (SS 05/16/10)
Final Price: As low as $2.99 ea!
Rite Aid Store Coupons –
Rite Aid has THE best store coupons! There are a number of different ones, different ways of getting them.
- In Ad coupons- these are the coupons you will find in the ad, and even if they say manufacturer coupon on them YOU CAN stack these with another manufacturer coupon [its in their coupon policy, see below]
- There are coupons that are called Rite Aid Video Value Coupons, you get them by basically watching a.com/mercial on a product and then getting a coupon for the item you just watched. After watching 20 [which honestly takes no time] you get to print a $5.00 off a 20.00 purchase coupon [which can really help lower you OOP] You can then use the Video Value coupon and stack them with manufacturer coupons to really take a lot off a product! Go here to check out the Video Values Program.
- The last type of Rite Aid coupon is $/$ off total purchase coupons. Like the one you get when you join the Video Value program & watch 20 videos. There are usually a 5.00/25.00, or a 4.00/20.00 coupon available on different sites. One thing to note- you can give these BEFORE any other coupons, as well, again its in their policy, see the policy below! Use $$ off your total coupon, Rite Aid coupons and Manufacturer coupons to lower your out of pocket money to then submit for the SCRs and get back your +UPRs…to use again next time!
