Couponing 101: How to Shop at Rite Aid
As you know I like to shop at Rite Aid- as of right now I have bought $346.71 worth of items and only paid $58.46, this year.
Knowing how to shop at Rite Aid is very important to the success of your couponing, so for this weeks Couponing 101 lesson, I am going to tell you everything you need to know about how to shop at Rite Aid.
The First thing you should know about are Single Check Rebates or SCR- I tend to avoid these deals because I think its a lot of extra effort, but I am not stopping you! The Single Check Rebate program is simple- you buy the current Single Check Rebate products, then submit your receipts online then get a check in the mail. You can find out which products are part of that months SCR program by going here.
You can actually use manufacturer coupons to turn these SCR deals into money makers. If the product cost $4 and you are going to get a $4SCR back, and you use a $2 off coupon-you will actually make $2 by buying that product. Once you fill out your information on the SCR site you can request your rebate and be mailed a check-only one per month.
The next part of Rite Aid shopping is using their store coupons. These can be found in the weekly circular that is mailed to you/found in store. Since these are store coupons you can stack them with a manufacturers coupon for super savings.
You can also use their Video Values Program coupons. These are short videos that you watch-advertisements actually. At the end you can print your coupons. These can be stacked with manufacturer coupons for extra savings.
The newest way to save big at Rite Aid is their Wellness+ Program, basically it is a store card where you earn points that will eventually lead to 10% or 20% your total in store purchase for a year! You also automatically get 10% off all Rite Aid Brand products every day. This card also gets you Up+Rewards, which print at the bottom of your receipt, you can then use these like cash on your next purchase.
