How to Shop at Wags & Rite Aid

Posted by Lisa

My biggest scores have always been at CVS.  Walgreens money saving systems change so often that I don’t care to try to keep up.  I don’t have Rite Aid in my area so I don’t keep up with deals there.  However, my go to gal is Jenny at SouthernSavers.com.

Here’s a link to her info on Walgreens coupon shopping. –  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXQ3hDXd-MM

She also lists Rite Aid deals on her site.  However, she doesn’t have a Rite Aid tutorial.  Here’s mine below.

Gathering the freebies at Rite Aid is done by their Single Check Rebate program, similar to Walgreens.  Here’s how it works.

1. Monthly rebate offers can be found in the rebate directory located in the display rack at the front of the store. You may also find an in-store coupon book on that rack as well.  Grab one.

2. Purchase rebate items for the month. This is nice.  You may either do it in one trip, or spread it out over a month.  The only drawback to this program is that you’re laying out cash for these items.  However, you may stack in-store coupons with manufacturer coupons for rebate items which gives you greater savings.

3. Go to RiteAid.com and create an account. This will enable you to enter all required information from your receipts into your account.

4.  At the end of the month, request your check. Rite Aid will only issue one check to each household per month, so keep your online records up to date after every purchase.  When you’re done with your monthly rebate shopping, request your check and watch it arrive in about 2-3 weeks.

Rite Aid accepts four types of coupons: 1) those generated by the manufacturer and found in newspapers; 2) manufacturer’s coupons found in Rite Aid circulars; 3) Rite Aid store coupons, also known as “valuable coupons,” that also are found in Rite Aid circulars; and, 4) only those internet coupons that contain the official Rite Aid name and logo as authorized and recognized by Rite Aid.
