There is a new program that Rite Aid released a few week’s ago called +Up Reward… It reminds me of a Hybrid Program between CVS’s Extra Buck Program & Walgreen’s Register Reward Program.


Here are some of the details:

  • You will need to sign up for the Wellness + Program
  • When you buy participating items, you will get a coupon that prints on the bottom of your receipt (similiar to CVS). This coupon can be be used on any non-prescription purchase.
  • Only 1 like +Up Reward will print per transaction. For example, let’s say there is a $2 +Up Reward on Colgate Toothpaste, if you purchase 2 in the same transaction- you will only get 1+Up Reward. BUT, if there is a $2 Colgate +Up Reward and a $2 Listerine +Up Reward in a given week, you could purchase both items and receive both Rewards.
  • These Rewards are ROLLING.  Let’s stick with our Colgate Scenario. If you purchase 1 Colgate in transaction 1- then buy 2 second Colgate in a separate transaction and use the 1st Rewards Coupon, a new Rewards coupon will print in the second transaction!
  • Your store will most likely not adjust the Rewards coupon down (in the event of overage), so you’ll need to add in enough items so that you don’t have overage.

So, sign up for a Wellness+ Rewards Card NOW!

    If your local Rite Aid store tells you that you can only use one +up reward per purchase, they are wrong. You can use as many as you want with the purchase, as long as it does not go under your total, and in the state I live, it cannot go under the amount of sales tax.
    Some up rewards need over $10 on a certain brand, but those coupons are coupons that are promotions for those brands, and you will get so many of these coupons with any purchase. You must purchase specific products to get the up rewards that can be used with any amount. keep in mind there is an experation date, usually around a week or two, deepending on date of purchase.
    Yes you can do separate transactions, but also think about how many you are going to do, and the other customers behind you, as well as the cashier who has to ring it up.

    USUALLY, the up rewards that are worth more than $5 have a limit of one per household, which means that it will not print even with a second transaction. (Since it’s still new, and they don’t have all the kinks worked out, sometimes they do print though.)Sometimes the store will manually give you the coupon value, but they are NOT required to do so. They are doing it as a courtesy, and will lose the money.

    Just a heads up, the company is hurting, and MOST of their higher volume stores will do whatever you ask, (as long as it’s not absurd) so they keep your buisness. The lower volume stores are most likely going to be shut down, so they don’t have the money to manually change coupons, and prices for you, so they won’t.

    Keep in mind things you ask for, and if the amount you may be saving is enough to give the cashier, who makes no money whatsoever, a hard time, and ruin their day. If you have an expired coupon for 50 cents, don’t bother.
    Always say thank you, and never be on your cell phone!!! :)

    If I have 4 individual UP rewards coupons, do I have to redeem them on 4 items for my next purchase? Or can I buy one pack of diapers and apply all 4 UP rewards coupons to that single item purchase?

    Does anyone know if there are restrictions on some of the up reward transactions? Yesterday I purchased the antacid product using the manufacturers coupon + the in-ad coupon and used my wellness card – getting the $7 up reward. My second transaction using another set of coupons and the same wellness card did not result in the $7 up reward. The checkers were at a loss to tell me why. I have successfully done multiple transactions before to get the up rewards.

    • Serafina says:

      Ginger, I was wondering the same thing! I did 2 Zegerid transactions on Sunday ($7 +UP printed for each one) and two on Wednesday. The ones on Wednesday did not print, and we were not sure what the problem was. The manager DID give me cash back. If they are limiting them, I wish it would be transparent and state that somewhere, like the CVS ECBs.

      • Jenna says:

        There are limits posted on the sales paper. I will admit it is VERY small font, and easy to overlook. 1 per house hold means that your up rewards will not print again, if another perchase is made. Especially if the coupon is over $5. Since the program is still “new” sometimes mistakes will happen and you’ll get another coupon, most of the time when it’s smaller coupons like $1 or $2.
        Sunday is the worst day to get the Rite Aid sales, because they have never been good at getting their sales right in the computer, so a lot of times the item does not ring, and now the up rewards wont print. Monday would be a better day to get the sales, because by then most of the kinks are worked out. :)

    You have to watch the ad. Most of the items will say in the ad how they will print out. Our store lets us use more than 1 in a transaction, but I would like to know how it should work.

    Ok I am just not getting this program. I don’t participate in any of the pharmacy programs- I find them to be too confusing. Stupid question but how do you redeem this to use it on another product? Do I use the website or tell the cashier to use my UP rewards or what?
    I bought Motrin with the coupon, my reciept has 3 UPs. 2 of which are for $1 off a $10 purchase which i won’t use but the 3rd says $3 off any non perscription purchase. So that’s anything in the store but perscription correct? It also says from purchase of Motrin. Does that mean I can only use it when getting another mortrin product?

    Sorry for the dumb questions but I have no idea. I hate to see UPs I have gotten just with sales go to waste if they don’t have to

    • Melanie says:

      the first 2 that printed up were just bonus coupons. the $3 for any non prescription purchase can be used on anything except for a prescription, just like it says. It says “from the purchase of motrin” because you were rewarded it for buying motrin. that’s all.

    I had some of the Old Spice Body wash +UP Rewards roll last week, but some didn’t. I figured out that a couple of times I didn’t buy the Swagger version that was listed in the ad. I also used 2 of the $1 +UP Rewards from the Huggies last week in one transaction with no problem.

  7. Ina says:

    Anyone know what their policy is on this? Different stores we have been to have told us different things, such as not being able to use more than one per transaction, while the other store just kept stacking them!

  8. Kate says:

    My Up rewards here is Sacramento CA are even worse and not worth for me. I got $1 Up reward of any SEASONAL purchase of $10 or more and second one for $1 of any HOUSEHOLD purchase of $10 or more.

  9. Amanda says:

    that does stink that you have to spend at least $10 in a trans to use it. i think rite aid is aiding way too much and making it confusing!

    do you know if you can use more than 1 up reward in the same transaction? i have a few from my huggies purchases.

  10. gina says:

    My +Up rewards print, but with a stipulation…you must spend at least $10 to use it. Generally it’s not a problem because I’m wanting to get my totals to $20 or $25 to use my $5 off coupons, but still.

  11. Patrice says:

    Bought both the Huggies jumbo pk and the Hersheys kisses tonight at the Mill Creek RA…used my wellness card…but no UP rewards printed at the end of my receipt. :(

  12. Jamie says:

    I bought 3 packs of huggies this week and 3 separate $1 Up rewards printed. I then used all 3 to buy 3 more packs and 3 more Up rewards printed again.

  13. Ana says:

    When I got the Old Spice body washes last week with the $4(?) +UP reward, it didn’t roll. Has this happened to anyone else with the rewards?

  14. Michelle says:

    And the wonderful thing about these +up rewards is you can use them IN ADDITION TO your $5/$20 coupons, video values coupons, in ad coupons, and manufacturers coupons! I am constanly having to throw in a filler to absorb overage!
