Rite Aid is rolling out 2 new programs at the same time and it’s I’m sure quite confusing for a lot of you. I’m going to do my best to break them both down. I’ll also review the Single Check Rebate program.
1. Wellness Card
Rite Aid has apapted a new “Club Card” of sorts, simliar 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.
- 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
2. 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. UP Rewards 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 UP Rewards on anything in the store, with the exception of prescription purchases. You can also “Roll” your rewards, meaning you can use the rewards you earned from X deal to purchase the very same X deal again.
Here is an example of a recent UP Rewards deal:
Gillette Deodorant – 2/$7 with Welness Card
Use BOGO Manufacturer Coupon
Get $4 UPR (Up Rewards) wyb 2
Final Price: $0.50 Money Maker
3. 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.
- 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.
- You CAN use manufacturer’s coupons 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!
