The Rite Aid weekly ad is full of great deals every week. The key to maximizing those savings is know the rules that Rite Aid has in place for their promotions and for coupons and to know where to get extra savings that Rite Aid has so generously provided for us.
Rite Aid Store Rules
When looking at the Rite Aid weekly ad you need to understand these core principles that can allow you to maximize your savings:
- The Rite Aid weekly ad runs from Sunday to Saturday.
- Rite Aid does not double coupons. So whatever coupons you use you are only getting the face value of those coupons
- Rite Aid has buy one get one free offers but you must purchase two of an item to get the discount
- Rite Aid has two major types of promotion; Single Check Rebates and +UP rewards
- Single Check Rebates are rebates that you file online and no matter how many you do in a given month you get one check for the entire amount. It is a great system that works very well to your benefit.
- +UP Rewards work like Rite Aid Currency. So you purchase a specific item and at the bottom of your receipt you will get a coupon for money off your next purchase. You can actually use these while you are still in the store. Remember next purchase not next visit. It is a key to maximizing your Rite Aid weekly ad savings.
Maximizing Your Rite Aid Weekly Ad Savings
Now that we have the basics down we need to cover the advanced strategies for getting even more savings out of your Rite Aid weekly ad.
BOGO deals and coupons – You can use more than one coupon on a BOGO deal. So even though the second item is free you can still get more off the price by using a second coupon.
Rite Aid Video Values Coupons – Rite Aid has their own site that you can get extra store coupons. The concept is simple you watch videos and they reward you with a store coupon for the product for which you just watched the video. The best part is that these coupons can be used with a manufacturer’s coupon. This means you can use two coupons on one item and if you are really lucky that item will have a single check rebate or +UP Rewards that week.
+UP Reward Cycling – This is the best way to maximize your savings using the Rite Aid weekly ad. Here is how it works, you purchase an item that will generate +UP rewards and then use those rewards to purchase another item that will generate more +UP Rewards. Here is a quick example:
–The Rite Aid weekly ad has two deals that are awesome. One is Shampoo for $3.99 with $3.99 in +UP Rewards and a $1 coupon the other is a toothbrush for $1.99 with $1.49 in +UP Rewards and a $1 coupon. The first thing we do is put both items in the cart and go up to the register. We are going to do two transactions so first we are going to buy the toothbrush. After coupon we will pay $0.99 and get $1.99 in +UP Rewards back. The second transaction is for the shampoo. You use +UP Reward from the first transaction and the manufacturer’s coupon and only pay $1.50 for the shampoo. You get back $3.99 in +UP for your next visit. So you spent $2.49 on the two items and got back $3.99 back in +UP rewards. That is a profit fo $1.50. This is an above average example but I have had this happen multiple times.
