Rite Aid can be a great place to get deals if you know how to utilize all of their coupons and rewards, but couponing there can be confusing — mainly because of the many different types of coupons that Rite Aid offers. One of the newest is Load2Card coupons. Load2Card coupons work just like other eCoupons — load them directly to your store loyalty card from RiteAid.com. But you may not be using them to their full advantage if you don’t know a few key tricks. Here’s how to get the most from Rite Aid’s Load2Card coupons:

How to get started

In order to use Load2Card coupons, you’ll need to have a Rite Aid wellness+ account. Just go to RiteAid.com to sign up. Expect to receive your card in the mail shortly after, and use your phone number to access the account in the meantime. 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 (before you lose it!) to create an online account so you can start loading up your coupons!

How to use Load2Card coupons

Loading: Log in to your wellness+ account on Rite Aid’s website and go the Load2Card page to see over 80 coupons that you can add to your card. Just choose the coupons you want, and they will be added to your account and applied automatically when you provide your wellness+ account info at checkout.

Store vs. Manufacturer: Load2Card coupons include both store and manufacturer coupons, and, for some reason beyond our understanding, Rite Aid doesn’t make it clear which are which. We’ve figured it out, though, and here’s how you can tell the difference: each Load2Card coupon will have a link that says “More.” When you click on it, the fine print will pop up. If the fine print says “Digital coupons and paper coupons may not be combined on the purchase of a single item,” this indicates a store coupon (which can be stacked with a paper manufacturer coupon). Any other verbiage, such as a remit address or instructions to the retailer, indicate a manufacturer coupon.

Stacking: If you are stacking paper coupons with Load2Card coupons, be sure to hand your paper coupons to the cashier and have them scanned before you enter your wellness+ account info. This can avoid a lot of hassle, and makes your paper coupons more likely to come off of your total.

If you have an issue with a coupon not being deducted from your total, go to or call customer service. They can look up your purchases through your wellness+ account and make the correction, if needed. Often, a coupon not working is the result of user error rather than the store’s mistake, so you may want to double-check that you did everything right before you call.

HELP! I want to unclip the load to card coupons but I can’t figure out how… I would rather just use my paper ones

New to using e-coupons – Used yesterday but they did not work according to my receipt.
When you use an e-coupon – how can you tell it was used on your receipt?

I always gave cashier my wellness card first because they ask me first. I had problem yesterday. They scanned my wellness card n used my saved up upreward points first so my total was only 0.06$ then the cashier lady refused to scan my paper coupons so i had a little arguement. Now i know what the problem was. Thank you!!


***After reading this post, I figured that this is a load2card STORE coupon*****

I had an issue with my load2card coupons.  So this is what I loaded to my wellness card:

"Save $1.00 on any Colgate Total® or Colgate® Optic White® Toothpaste (3.4 oz. or larger)
Save $1.00 on any Colgate Total® or Colgate® Optic White® Toothpaste (3.4 oz. or larger)
Void if altered, copied, sold, or transferred or where prohibited or restricted by law. One coupon per purchase of specified product(s). May not be combined with other offers. Good only at participating retailers. Consumer pays any sales tax. NOT SUBJECT TO DOUBLING.
Requires minimum purchase of 1."
After reading this post, I figured that this load2card coupon.
I also loaded a MFR coupon to my wellness card:
"Save $0.25 on Dawn
Save $0.25 on ONE Dawn (excludes trial/travel size).
Consumer: Limit ONE coupon per purchase of products and quantities stated. Any other use constitutes fraud. Coupons are not authorized if purchasing products for resale. You may pay sales tax. Dealer: Submission to Procter & Gamble signifies compliance with ‘Requirements for Proper Coupon Redemption.’ Copy available by writing to P&G, 2150 Sunnybrook Drive, Cincinnati, OH 45237
Requires minimum purchase of 1."

So, this week, some RiteAid’s Colgate toothpastes are on sale for $3.99 PLUS $1 Up Reward, and Dawn dish soap are on sale for $.99 

I brought with me a printed MFR coupon for the Colgate hoping that I can stack it with my load2card coupon.  I did not bring a printed coupon for the Dawn because my load2card coupon for it was MFR coupon already.  So, like what was posted above, I asked the cashier to scan my printed coupon first (which went through) before scanning my wellness card, but my load2card coupon for the Colgate was never applied while my load2card MFR coupon for the Dawn was applied.
Do you think maybe I should have scanned my wellness card first before handing the cashier my printed coupon?

if I purchase the item twice, can the Load2Card coupon be used twice?

I have the same question.

Be careful…at the checkout, my Load2card coupon was considered a manufacture coupon, but it didn’t say that. ($2/1) When I went to use a $1/1 manufactures coupon for the same product, it replaced the $2 off instead bringing my total up a dollar and not using the Loaded coupon on the transaction.

Can video coupons be stacked with store coupons from load 2 card?

Help. when i go to shop at rite aid the cashiers say that she need to scan the card fist and then use my coupons. So some times i don’t purchase nothing, because if i do it that way, at the moment that i want to use my MC the screen is on zero because my up rewards. Its any rule that the cashier need to scan the card first??

I always have a hard time at my Rite Aid because they insist in scanning my card first so then of course i have issues. Anyone else have this problem?

This is something i have not been able to find an answer to………… For deals such as Spend $30 receive $10 UP rewards. . . i understand that i can use coupons and still get the $10 UP rewards………. but can i also use UP rewards that i got from last weeks deals and still be eligible for the new $10 UP rewards?


I don’t think it matters in SoCal RA when you hand scan your store card (my card is set to print the UP rewards on paper) when it comes to the L2C q’s. I haven’t had a L2C q deduct in ages, and I figured it is b/c system was updated to automatically detect when a manufacture coupon is used for the qualifying products. Can’t be sure, as usual with RA, but this is my experience.

cool thanks for the info I am newer to this so i just got out my card and signed it up and clipped some, now I will just have to learn the rest of the store too so I can do this will confidence! lol :)

LOL. I still have 4 Garnier Fructis coupons on my Load2Card account I clipped back in January and I have bought shampoo and conditioner 3 times since I’ve clipped them.

they must be mfr coupons, same thing happenned to me with the playtex wipes.

It’s true that Rite-Aid coupons can be mysterious. You might say that they are wrapped in a ‘scarf’ of wonder! 😉

If you see the buy one get second one for 50% off sale, handing the cashier the cheaper one first will make the more expensive one for 50% off. I don’t do it on purpose but when it happens, that’s how it shows on the receipt.
