Rite Aid Extreme Couponing (Week of 7/1): $5.00 or Less

Welcome to this post where we will lay out some extreme couponing deals that will cost you about $5.00 each week! First, here’s everything you need to know about shopping at Rite Aid:

Before shopping at RiteAid you should sign up for a Wellness card or get one in your store. The best deals at Rite Aid utilize the +Up Rewards and the Single Check Rebate (SCR) system. In addition to the +Up Rewards, which are coupons that print with your receipt (similar to CVS), Rite Aid sends you a monthly check for the total of all your rebates purchased during that month with the SCR program. You can cash the check as you would any other check. In addition to the +Up Rewards and the SCR program, you can watch videos on products and receive Video Value coupons. These coupons can be printed from your computer after you watch the corresponding videos. You can use each coupon once per Wellness card. Go here for RiteAid’s updated coupon policy and here to watch the video on shopping at Rite Aid.

    My store had naturelief reg on clearance 50% so it was a moneymaker even without the extra coupon which I didn’t have. That’s so Krazy!

    I don’t know if this is nationwide but we now have “load to card” which is your up rewards go on your wellness card and not on a receipt anymore. The up rewards automatically go on your next transaction you can’t decide when to use them, the store does.

    I was pretty bummed I had 8$ in rewards for some new makeup and when I bought Pepsi they got used without me asking to do so. I complained to the store I was saving them and she said there was nothing they could do.

    So watch out and keep track of what transaction you are making if you want your ups to be used.

      Sometime last week someone here mentioned there was a way to opt out of the load to card rewards. I think they suggested calling RA customer service. I’m sure they can help you or at least guide you to where you can opt out and still get your paper rewards :)

      You can opt out of the program and still have them print to your receipt. The instructions on how the cashiers could do it at the store were on iheartriteaid.com a week or so ago but you can also call customer service to opt out.  Another way around it if you are using coupons is by scanning your card after they items and coupons have been scanned so that it doesn’t kick your coupons off by using too many up rewards. Hope this helps.

      thanks for the heads up…I hope this isn’t the case, I don’t like when I’m nt in control of ALL my cpns. it should be left to the customer on when they want to use THEIR rewrds.

        I was able to “Opt Out” of the Load to Card gimmick within 2 weeks after it rolled out in our area. I hated not being able to control the +Up Rewards I earned.

        Basically, I spoke to the manager at the local  Rite Aid and she was able to change my preferences at the store. It took a couple of days to take effect, but I’ve been getting printed +Up’s since then (which I love). Good luck!

      • I agree. Since a lot of +UP rewards have different expiration dates, how are we supposed to be able to keep track of when a +UP reward has to be used??

        I live in SJersey and as of last week I am still getting the +UP rewards printed at the bottom of my receipt.

    • According to Brian (another poster), you can “opt out” of having your +UPs “load to card”. He says the manager at his store was able to change his preferences at the store but that it took a couple of days to go in to effect.
