Rite Aid Deals And Transaction Scenarios 9/26 to 10/2

A couple of notes to start with:
  1. Make sure you know RiteAid'sCouponPolicy. Print out a copy to keep with you. This will be a great help when you get a cashier, or even a manager, who doesn't know the policy.
  2. Go to Rite Aid AdPerks to watch videos and earn Rite Aid Video Value coupons. You will be able to earn a $5/$25 Rite Aid coupon, as well as a coupon for each product for which you watch a video. While there does not appear to be a limit as to how many Video Values accounts you can have per address, your Wellness+ card will remember which coupons you have used (VV coupons with long barcodes only). You will only be allowed to use 1 coupon (with long barcode) per Wellness+ card per month. Once a coupon with a long barcode has been used, it can not be used again, not even on another Wellness+ card (it will beep at the register and say that it has already been redeemed). If you have a Video Value account and your husband has one too, then you are going to need two Wellness+ cards (one for him and one for you) in order to be able to use all the coupons.
  3. Remember to still print extra of the Video Values coupons with the short barcodes. (Rite Aid Video Values only allows you to choose to print the coupon one time. You can not go back and choose to print it again later. That being said, when you originally choose to print the coupon a print screen will pop up. On that print screen it has a place for you to type in how many times you want the page printed. (NOTE that the coupon is good for 2 months.) While all the Video Values coupons will print more than once. Some have a unique barcode that will only allow you to use the coupons once. Others can still be used more than once. The rule is - long barcode = only 1 use; short barcode = multiple uses.) For more information, please read my post HERE.
  4. Rite Aid rolled out their new program Wellness+ nationwide. If you haven't already done so, sign up for your rewards card online or in stores. You may also wish to consider getting your husband a Wellness+ card too. Starting August 1st all +UP Rewards will be tied to your Wellness+ card. There will be a limit of 1 +UP Reward per card per week (unless otherwise stated). If you have trouble getting the +UP Rewards to print, give RA a call. They are reimbursing the +UP Rewards that should have printed:
    Public Relations Dept.
    Rite Aid Corporation
    Camp Hill, PA
    Office: (717) 975-5713 (Eric Harkreader)
  5. Print out EXTRA $5 off any purchase of $25 or more coupons HERE (exp. 9/30/10) or HERE (exp. 10/31/10).

All my scenarios will reflect my personal goal to either make money or at least not to have spent any at the end of the month - after I get my Single Check Rebate, Rite Aid gift cards, and/or MIR checks.

**Unless otherwise indicated, there is a limit of one single check rebate per item and/or 1 +UP Reward per item.**

Oh my, . . . where do I start? ? ? Is there such a thing as too many good deals? Okay, that question may be a little extreme. The answer is obviously "NO." Still, these past couple of weeks have just left my head spinning. So many options and just 1 week to fit in all the deals. (What a problem to have. . . . )

Keep checking those expiration dates on your +UP Rewards. Use any that expire this week. (So far I've only had one expire on me - a $1 +UP Reward from Purex. Somehow it got separated from the rest of my +UP Rewards and not relocated until it was long expired. I was disappointed. . . but at the same time, considering all the RA shopping I do, I figure loosing just $1 is not bad.

Also, many of the coupons expire on the 30th, so you are probably going to want to plan a trip to RA before then.

**I'm still limited in when I can use a computer right now and when I can't (ie. I have to wait for my husband to bring his home from work). I'll be posting periodically this week. (If you happen to see separate posts go up throughout the day, that does not mean that I have a computer to post from. Check the time the posts went up. If they went up on the hour or half hour, then they were previously sceduled posts.) All things should be back to normal sometime mid week. Once again, it would be very helpful if you would take it on yourselves to answer any questions people might post in the comments section. Also, if anyone puts together a scenario and leaves it in the comments section, that would be helpful to others who check this blog. Thank you so much.**
