A Store Guide to Shopping at Rite Aid
The first thing to keep in mind while shopping at Rite Aid is that regular prices vary from store to store, especially in metropolitan areas. I post the coupon match up list on Sunday mornings.
With several new programs, Rite Aid is the complicated, but also currently the most profitable drug store.
The first thing you need to do when shopping at Rite Aid is sign up for a Wellness+ card. This is a new program and card that will allow you to get the sale prices and UP rewards (which are like Extra Care Bucks at CVS).
Rite Aid will accept manufacturer’s coupons that are not expired. They will accept Internet Printable coupons under $5. Rite Aid coupon policy states that any coupon over the purchase price of an item will be adjusted down, overage is not allowed. You may use a Rite Aid coupon and a manufacturer’s coupon together. Rite Aid can be tricky because many of their store/ad coupons say manufacturer coupons when in fact they are not. Rite Aid policy states you can use a BOGO coupon on a BOGO sale however, I have been to Rite Aid’s that still will not allow this. You may use 2 coupons on a BOGO sale.
Rite Aid also offers occasional printable coupons and Video Values coupons that can be stacked with manufacturer’s coupons.
The SCR is the Rite Aid Single Check Rebate program. There are dozens of rebates published every month in a booklet that you can find in the store or online. You can only submit ONE account per HOUSEHOLD, so you will want to wait until the end of the month to submit. Processing your rebate check takes a while after you request it. Your check will usually arrive about 3 weeks after you request it. The check comes as a postcard and can be easily missed or thrown away with the junk mail, if you aren’t looking for it. All of the qualifiers for a rebate (example: SCR says buy X, Y, Z to get gift card) do not need to be on the same receipt.You can enter them throughout the rebate period. This allows you to buy things the week that they are on sale to maximize your savings!
