+Up Rewards are Rite Aid Coupons, similar to a Catalina coupon in a grocery store, CVS Extra Bucks, or Walgreens Register Rewards. Earn reward dollars for purchasing select items. Combine +Up Reward promotions with coupons, and get incredible deals—including free items!  Here’s what you need to know to take advantage of Rite Aid +Up Rewards:

How to get started

In order to receive +Up Rewards, you’ll need to have a wellness+ account. Visit RiteAid.com to sign up. Receive your card in the mail or use your phone number in the keypad at checkout. You can also sign up in-store, but if you do, be sure to go to the website right away and enter your card number to create an online account—you’ll need it to take full advantage of Rite Aid’s deals!

How to use Rite Aid +Up Rewards

How +Up Rewards work: Rite Aid’s +Up Rewards are similar to Catalina coupons in a grocery store. Receive +Up Reward dollars with your receipt at the end of the transaction. The rewards are automatically loaded onto your wellness+ card. +Up Rewards can be redeemed beginning at 6 a.m. the following day and are valid for 14 days.

Though +Up Rewards used to print out on the bottom of your receipt, in September of 2012, Rite Aid started loading rewards directly onto your wellness+ card, instead. However, you can opt to have the rewards print on your receipt like they used to, which gives you more control over how you use them. When your rewards are loaded onto your card, they will be redeemed automatically the next time you use the card, starting with the highest value reward first and working down. This means you have no say over which rewards you use and when. If you prefer your rewards to print out on your receipt, just ask your cashier or customer service to change the preference on your account.

Where to find them: The main source for information on which items will earn you +Up Rewards is Rite Aid’s weekly ad. It will tell you all of Rite Aid’s advertised rewards deals for the week, but you can also find unadvertised or monthly deals just by browsing the aisles in the store. And be sure to come to KCL — we’ll tell you which coupons to combine with +Up Rewards promos to get the best possible deals!

Stacking coupons and rewards: Save more by combining manufacturer coupons with +Up Rewards — just remember to have the cashier apply your manufacturer coupons before you swipe your wellness+ card, or you may end up with too low a balance to use your manufacturer coupons at all.

Limits: There are usually limits associated with +Up Rewards, but it’s important to remember that the limits are on the rewards, not on the items purchased. For example, Ricola and Sucrets were on sale 2/$3. Rite Aid was offering $1 in +Up Rewards for every two of these items purchased, with a limit of 4 (remember, a limit of 4 rewards, not a limit of 4 items). This means you could buy 8 items and receive your limit of $4 in +Up Rewards. You can buy more than 8 packages of Ricola or Sucrets at the 2/$3 price, but you cannot receive more than $4 in +Up Rewards on these items.
