Rite Aid 101 – Learn to Coupon at Rite Aid
Rite Aid is a GREAT place to save on all your purchases. You can even pay pennies on the dollar for the things you use every day like toothpaste, floss, hair products, and household products. There are a few different ways to save at Rite Aid and I would suggest if you are new at this, ease into it as it can become a little confusing with all that goes on in the process.
1. Single Check Rebate Program (SCR) –
This is a great way to get money back on the products you purchase throughout the month. I say month because you can only turn in your SCR’s once per month, but before I jump ahead of myself, here’s how it works. The Single Check rebate Program (SCR) lets you buy participating products during a certain time period. The rebate offers do change by the month and the amount of time you have to purchase changes as well. So, make sure you buy the item(s) within the right time period.
To receive your rebates, you MUST sign up online first for Rite Aid Rebates Plus, and then you get the option of sending in your receipts by mail or just typing in your receipt’s information online at the end of the month. Remember, you are only allowed to submit for rebates once per month. I recommend you wait to the end of the month so you don’t miss out on any rebates. Once, submitted, you can then expect a check in the mail from Rite Aid. Awesome huh?
Herbal Essence Shampoo $1.99
*Earn $1.99 SCR*
Use $1.00 off Manufactures Coupon in Smart Source 8/14 insert
Total out of pocket is $.99 + Submit for SCR at the end of month
Final Price: FREE plus $1.00 overage!
2. Video Values Program –
Watch videos online and get GREAT printable coupons! These videos are usually 2-4 minutes long and you can really save $$$ using these coupons. Some will be Rite Aid $5.00 Off $20.00 purchases or similar to that – others will be on specific products. These are sometimes called “ad perks.” You can keep up to date with the videos here a the Rite Aid Video Values page. These do change every month.
3. Wellness + Rewards Program
This is a card you can get at the store or sign up for online at the Rite Aid Welness + Rewards page. With this card you can save on many different things. For one, you will now be able to get the +UP Rewards advertised in the weekly circular. These rewards are a dollar amount printed at the bottom of your receipt and can be used on your next store purchase. You can say this is like cash back for purchasing the participating products. **Note you can use manufactures coupons AND Rite Aid Store coupons on your +UP Rewards Product Purchase to save even more***
As an example –
Motrin PM 20ct $3.00
-$1.00 Manufactur Motrin coupon
-$.50 Rite Aid Store coupon for Motrin
Get +UP Reward $2.00
Out of Pocket price = $1.50
TOTAL Savings = FREE due to the $2.00 +UP Rewards. (to be used in your next transaction)
You will notice that the +Up Rewards do have a limit per item, but you can purchase the item for the same sale price even after you have the limited amount of cash back rewards.
**Note on using multiple coupons** from the revised coupon policy
More than one coupon CAN be used on one product as long as the guidelines are met. You can use one “48” Rite Aid Manufacturer Coupon (Can be found in RITE AID coupon booklet available in store and in Weekly Sales Paper circular and also occasionally mailed to you from Rite Aid) and one “49” Rite Aid Value Coupon which is the coupon you receive from watching the videos PLUS a “Normal” Manufacturers coupon that can be found HERE on Coupon Dad’s site, or in the Sunday paper inserts.
Limit 4 of the same products per transaction.
The BEST things to REMEMBER are ALWAYS come to Coupon Dad to find your weekly match-ups so you don’t have the worry of doing all the work yourself. Coupon Dad does it for you.
