Did you know you can stack up to three coupons at Rite Aid?   One of my favorite things about couponing at Rite Aid is that I can use multiple coupons on a product to get great deals! It can be confusing at first, but stacking coupons is a big reason to shop at Rite Aid. Read on to learn how to successfully stack coupons.   The first thing to know is that there are three categories of coupons: manufacturer coupons, Rite Aid manufacturer coupons and Rite Aid valuable coupons. Rite Aid allows one of each type of coupon to be used on a product. In order to know what type of coupon you’re using, you’ll need to read the coupon’s barcode. Don't run away, though—it isn't as hard as you think! Read on to find out how easy it is to distinguish each type of coupon.

Manufacturer Coupons

Manufacturer coupons are found in newspaper inserts like Redplum (RP) and SmartSource (SS), in magazines, attached to products and online. These coupons will generally say “manufacturer coupon" on them. Check the barcode as well; the number on the barcode will often start with a 5.

Rite Aid Manufacturer Coupons

Also known as RC49, Rite Aid's coupon policy calls these “manufacturer coupons”—but don't be confused, they’re actually just store coupons. These can be found on the Rite Aid website or Facebook page, in their weekly ad, or oftentimes printed at the bottom of your receipt. Look at the barcode: the numbers on Rite Aid manufacturer coupons will always start with "RC49.” These are the most common Rite Aid store coupons.

Rite Aid Valuable Coupons

Also known as RC 48, these coupons are the hidden gem and show up on rare occasions. We have seen them printed on the bottom of receipts and in weekly ads. Check the barcode, and if it begins with "RC48," you’ve just scored one of these rare, stackable coupons! The most common place we spot RC48 coupons are on "freshness" peelies. Rite Aid will put green, “freshness,” peel-able coupons on products that are near the sell-by date. A few times a week, each Rite Aid store will check their system and corresponding stock for products that are about a month out from reaching the sell-by date. These products will get a bright green peel-able sticker with varying amounts of extra savings. Since these are RC48 coupons, they can be stacked with RC49 store coupons, manufacturer coupons, sale and +Up Rewards to make for great deals!

Put it all together and stack for huge savings!

In this case, reading a barcode is pretty simple. Just remember, look at the first few numbers on the code and it will tell you all you need to know. A manufacturer coupon can be stacked with one RC49 coupon and one RC48 coupon. When it comes time to hand over your coupons, there’s no need to worry about the order you redeem them. Just keep in mind that if you’re paying with +Up Rewards, hand over all coupons first. Think of +Up Rewards as your payment. You would never pay for your purchase before giving coupons since you can’t apply coupons to a paid-for product. Get ready to save—you now hold the key to stacking coupons at Rite Aid! I always carry a copy of the Rite Aid coupon policy with me when I shop. It details what coupons can be used and how they can be stacked on purchases. It not only helps me if I forget, but also helps if clarification is needed at checkout.  Now that you’re ready to stack coupons and save big at Rite Aid, check our store page to see all of the latest and best deals!
