In many ways Rite Aid’s rewards program and coupon policy outdoes its competitors. If you’re on the fence, wondering whether it’s time you mastered the art of shopping at Rite Aid, take my advice and don’t delay another day. With every week that goes by, you’re missing out on more and more krazy bargains!
Sign up for the free Rite Aid Wellness+ card at RiteAid.com. Each time you shop, use your phone number or hand your Wellness+ card to the cashier. Using the Wellness+ card will qualify you to receive Wellness+ points for every dollar you spend. The more points you earn the more you save, up to 20% off the entire store!
Rite Aid in-ad coupons can be found in the weekly sales circular in the Sunday paper and near the entrance of your local Rite Aid store. These are store coupons with the sequence RC49 preceding the numerals under the barcode. Rite Aid coupon policy calls these “Rite Aid Manufacturer Coupons”. (It’s like a coupon contradiction: Is it a Rite Aid store coupon or a manufacturer coupon?) Rest assured these are store coupons.
Rite Aid Video Values, otherwise known as Adperk coupons, are short commercial videos (aprox 0:30-3:00 min) that you may watch at RiteAid.Adperk.com. After watching each video, enter the security code and sign into your account, and a corresponding coupon will be added to your rewards account. To print, click on the “Rewards” tab and select the coupons you’d like. You can print immediately after watching or save until the middle of the following month.
Video Values coupons are store coupons, but, confusingly enough, they have “Manufacturer Coupon” printed across the top. But don’t worry; Rite Aid specifically separates these coupons in their coupon policy. The important piece of information to look for on these coupons is the numeral sequence RC49 beneath the coupon’s barcode.
Video Values coupons are meant to be printed and redeemed once. Multiple copies or sharing of Video Values coupons is against the Rite Aid policy.
The Rite Aid coupon policy allows the customer to use more than one coupon per item as long as the total of the coupons is equal to or less than the price of the product, before sales tax. The best part about stacking coupons at Rite Aid is that you are allowed to use three (yes, three!) coupons per item! Here’s a quote straight from the policy:
No more than
- one “48” Rite Aid Valuable coupon,
- one “49” Rite Aid Manufacturer coupon, and
- one “5” Manufacturer coupon can be used on a single item.
Now you see why it’s important to look at the first numerals along the barcode on your coupon! You can use these numerals to determine how many coupons can be redeemed against one item!
LIMITS: Rite Aid isn’t throwing money at us like the lottery. They do impose some limits for shoppers to work around. Rite Aid limits shoppers to no more than four identical coupons in one shopping order. Quantities allowed are up to the store manager’s sole discretion.
Buy One, Get One Free Coupons
Shoppers used to be able to stack a BOGO coupon with a BOGO sale at Rite Aid in order to get two products for free. Rite Aid’s updated policy no longer allows this practice. In regards to BOGO coupons specifically, the policy states,
. . . only one coupon can be used for each pair of items purchased. A customer can use one “cents off” coupon in conjunction with the item they are purchasing on a Buy One Get One Free promotion (or with a Buy One Get One Free coupon), although the value of the cents off coupon cannot exceed the selling price of the item.
Buy 2 Special K Cereal $5.00
Buy 1, Get 1 Free store promotion
Use 1 $1.00/1 manufacturer coupon
Final Price: $2.00 each, when you buy 2
It would have been great to have been able to use two manufacturer coupons, or to have used a BOGO manufacturer coupon, but since the policy specifically prohibits this, we will be happy to use one manufacturer coupon for every two items when they are part of a BOGO sale.
