A beginners guide to Rite Aid

Shopping at Rite Aid

For the pacific northwest Rite Aid is another great store for getting amazing bargains by taking advantage of some of their programs.

Note: Rite Aid is generally more expensive then your local grocery store unless you shop sales. In addition to their sale prices Rite Aid’s has thier SCR (single check rebate) program which can be used for some great deals. Occasionally they also run promotions for money back at Rite Aid.

1) Rite Aid’s SCR rebates
SCR is Rite Aid’s rebate program. It stands for Single Check Rebate. It is named such becuase you can only request a rebate once during the month. Smart shoppers wait until the end of the month to request their check so they don’t miss you on any great deals.  SCR deals can be found in your local Rite Aid ad (often they are highlighted) as well as in a paper flier at the front of your local store. I will highlight what I think are the best SCR’s here on this blog for you as well. Often the rebate is only good for one item, and it is only good during  specific time frame (ie only one or two weeks out of the month rebate period). This is different then Walgreen’s which run all month long. So if you see a deal you want be sure and pick it up that week!.
To participate in these deals you must go into Rite Aid, purchase the item listed and then turn in or input your receipt for your rebate. You can only request one rebate check per month so you want to wait until the end of the month to request this. The easiest way to request the rebates is to go here and sign up for their program online. Then you enter the recipt information into their website and at the end of the month just “request” your check (it will calculate your rebates from your recipt). It takes me almost three weeks to get the check from the date of request but I always get it!
Special Promotions-Rite Aid often runs special promotions where if you spend a certain amount by a certain date then you can get a Rite Aid gift card. Other promotions are that if you spend a certain amount on any breand (for example Proctor and Gambil) then you get a gift card for a certain amount of money. You don’t have to enroll in a seperate program for any of these. Rite Aid keeps track when you enter your recipts for the rebates. If you qualify your gift card will come in the mail as well as your check (I LOVE LOVE THIS ABOUT THIS COMPANY!).
A few Rite Aid “rules”

1-Sometimes at Rite Aid the order of your coupons is important. If this is true I’ll be sure to tell you!

2-There is no corporate policy on internet printable coupons. Each store is allowed to set its own policy. I have never had any problems (and Rite Aid gives you internet coupons when you sign up for their rebat program) but each store does have a right to decide so if your store won’t accept them there is nothing you can do (again I have been to 5 different stores in 3 different states and never had a problem)
