If you like doing drugstore deals, you’ll love Rite Aid. That is because Rite Aid offers many different opportunities to save money and get groceries for free. Here are some shopping tips on how to save at Rite Aid.
Rite Aid Store Coupons
The nice thing about store coupons is that they can be stacked with manufacturer coupons to get great deals. This can double your savings on your purchases and often results in getting things for free.
There are several places where you can find Rite Aid store coupons.
Check out the weekly Rite Aid flyer. You will often find store coupons here. The flyer is usually available in the Sunday newspaper or mailed to your home, as well as in the store itself.
You can often get some high value Rite Aid coupons right at the bottom of your register receipt. Whenever you check out, always look here. You don’t want to accidentally toss out a good coupon.
Video Values is another way to get coupons by earning them. You watch videos and then are rewarded with Rite Aid coupons.
You can also get coupons that are in the form of rewards. The coupons are rewarded to you when you make certain purchases. The nice thing about these types of coupons is that they can be stacked with both Rite Aid store coupons and manufacturer coupons for a triple deal! There is a limit of using only one of these types of coupons per transaction.
They are also known as purchase based coupons.
When you want to a triple stack, you should give your coupons to the cashier in a certain order. How the coupons are rung up can affect the deal. First hand over any rewards coupons, then hand over any manufacturer coupons and then finally hand over any Rite Aid store coupons.
Getting Single Check Rebates
There is yet another way to save at Rite Aid, this time in the form of Single Check Rebates (SCR). Instead of mailing in forms and receipts for a rebate, you can submit them all online. You’ll have to check the schedule, which varies, to know the deadlines for submitting your receipts.
The nice thing about SCRs is that you don’t have to make all of your purchases on one transaction. You just have to purchase them all within the time frame. For example, if you need to buy two packs of diaper, you can can one pack on one day and a second pack on another day and still qualify to get the SCR.
You can only receive one check per month, so it pays to do all of your rebates for a given time period before requesting your check. The check will arrive in one or two weeks.
