Rite Aid Explained

Drug stores are a great source of freebies, I wanted to explain a little about Rite Aid here

Rite Aid currently has 3 programs: Single Check Rebate, the Wellness program and the +UP Rewards program.

Single Check Rebates (SCR)
Rite Aid primarily uses the Single Check Rebate system. Rather than give you instant savings, selected products each week and month are eligible for a SCR. Participating items may be found in both the weekly circular as well as the monthly Single Check Rebate book (available only in the store or may be viewed online here).  You do not need a store loyalty card in order to participate in the Single Check Rebate program, but you will need to register an account at If it is the first time that you are registering, you should receive valuable Rite Aid coupons (such as a $5 off $25 coupon).  The most important thing to remember about the SCR program is that you may only request a SINGLE CHECK per month. If you buy items eligible for a SCR at the beginning of the month and immediately request your refund check, you will be unable to participate in the program for the remainder of the month.

Wellness Program

Rite Aid incorporates a reward card called Wellness Reward Card.  You can sign up for one in store or online here.
Saving more is simple with +UP rewards.  Learn more.

Why do I need a card?

 UP Rewards
UP rewards are attached to the end of your receipt when you buy select products. It's associated with your Wellness card so you must scan your Wellness card to get your UP reward.

So just like the CVS extra bucks rewards you can roll them to your next deal to lower your out of pocket spend.  Don't forget to check the bottom if your receipt for the UP reward (see below) and make sure you use it before it expires.
Weekly Deals
Starts on a Sunday till Saturday each week.  If you want to get on the free deals plan to head out on Sunday or Monday for first dibs.
Freebie Deals
Subscribe to my weekly drug store freebie post here before you head to the drug store.  Print coupons from, RedPlum & Smartsource to lower your out of pocket down to zero and even make you some money.
Coupon Policy
Rite Aid allows the use of 1 manufacturers coupon and 1 Rite Aid coupons per item. Manufacturers coupons are redeemed at face value…Rite Aid does not double coupons.  Rite Aid will frequently put coupons in their ads that are labeled “Manufacturers Coupon”. Check the bar code on those coupons: If the serial number starts with the letters “RC” then they are actually Rite Aid coupons (because they can only be redeemed at Rite Aid) and can be stacked with a manufacturers coupon (meaning that you can both coupons on the same item!)

Rite Aid has now partnered with Upromise! This means that you are now able to add Upromise e-coupons to your Rite Aid Wellness+ card and redeem them at Rite Aid for even more savings!
