Make the Most of Your Rite Aid Shopping!
If you’re new to couponing, new to Rite Aid, or just not sure how to make the most of your shopping you’ll definitely want to read this.
WELLNESS + Program
Before you do anything, you’ll want to sign up for Rite Aid’s Wellness+ rewards program. Go here to apply for your card. You will get a temporary card you can start using right away, and they will send you a permanent card in the mail. There are a few ways to earn points and rewards in this program.
1 point for every dollar spent on non-prescription purchases
25 points for every prescription
Just have them scan your card at check out and the points will automatically be added. Note that you do not earn points for any store coupons or UPR you use to pay for your purchase.
Here’s what your points will earn you:
For every 125 points (up to 375) – receive a one time, 10% off shopping pass
500 points – 10% off all non-prescription purchases everyday
500 points – free health screenings
1000 points – 20% off all non-prescription points purchases everyday
If an item is on sale, you will receive the lower of either the sale price or price using your Wellness+ discount.
You will also get many other perks for being part of this program:
Wellness+ sale pricing throughout the store
10% off all Rite-Aid brand products everyday
24/7 exclusive access to a pharmacist when you call 1-800-Riteaid
When you sign up for the Wellness+ program, you will be able to print a coupon for $5 off $25 purchase and you will also receive an email with 50 bonus coupons.
Every week there are different +Up Reward (UPR) sales, which are listed in the weekly circular and online. You need to use your Wellness+ card to get these offers, and the UPR will print on the end of your receipt when you purchase the qualifying items. These UPR are essentially $$ off coupons that can be used toward future purchases (excluding prescriptions, tobacco, alcohol, etc). These have expiration dates and you will NOT be able to use them after they expire (even if it is only a day past expiry). Treat these like cash!
Single Check Rebates:
Single Check Rebate (SCR) is Rite Aid’s monthly rebate program. Go here to register and you will be automatically enrolled and can participate immediately. Each month the monthly SCRs are listed on Rite Aid’s website and they also publish a booklet that is available in stores.L
Anytime you purchase an item that qualifies for a monthly SCR, log on to the website and enter the information from your receipt (or if you prefer, hold onto your receipts and mail them in at the end of the month). You can request your rebate at the end of each month. You can only request your rebate one time each month, so I recommend waiting until the last day of the month to request it so you make sure you don’t accidentally miss anything. If you request it early, you will get no rebate for any other SCR items you purchase for the remainder of the month
These SCRs usually have a limit (typically one per household), so make sure you check the fine print. Qualifying dates can vary as well – sometimes a SCR is good all month long, other times it is good only for a particular week.
Rite Aid Store Coupons
The best part about the rebate is that, even if you use a coupon when paying for the item, you still get back the FULL rebate. Whether it’s $.50 off, $1 off, Free, doesn’t matter – you still get the entire value of the rebate!!
Occasionally Rite Aid has $/$$ purchase coupons, such as $3 off $15 purchase, which may print on your receipt or be available to print online. There are often store coupons that can be found in the weekly circular or online. These coupons can be combined with manufacturer’s coupons to get extra savings! These coupons typically have a limit of one per transaction or one per customer.
Video Values. You earn these coupons by watching various short video clips/commercials, usually 30 seconds – 2 minutes long each. Each video earns you a different coupon, which will be available to print after you watch the video. These are also Rite Aid store coupons and can usually be combined with in-ad coupons and/or manufacturer coupons. These have a limit of one per customer.
Rite Aid also has monthly video values coupons
Rite Aid Coupon Policy
You can read the complete Rite Aid coupon policy here. It’s not a bad idea to print this and take it along with you in case you ever have a problem using a coupon.
One of my favorite things about Rite Aid’s policy is that itclearly states that for a Buy One Get One Free sale, you are allowed to use a Buy One Get One Free coupon to get both items for free! This type of sale/coupon situation happens at Rite Aid fairly often and means lots of free products!!
Hopefully this helps. Still have questions??? Feel free to email me or leave a question in the comments!
