There are NOW many ways to save money at Rite Aid and it may be getting a little confusing for us as well as the cashiers. There are manufacturing coupons, in-ad coupons, video values coupons, wellness coupons, single check rebates and NOW +UP Rewards. I will explain +UP Rewards in a minute, but wanted to answer the never ending questions about stacking coupons.
We all know you can stack a manufacturing coupon with a STORE coupon. BUT how many “STORE” coupons can we use? Rite Aid store coupons can sometimes be confusing because they sometimes say mfg coupon on top, BUT if they are coded RC###, they are STORE coupons. Most in-ad coupons and all Video Values coupons are considered STORE coupons. Luckily for us, Rite Aid has given us some concrete clarification in this upcoming weeks sales flyer:

So there you have it, you CAN use an IN-AD coupon AND a Video Values coupon for the same product – these along with a manufacturer coupon. You may want to cut this out of the flyer when you get it and hang onto it in your coupon file to help “clarify” things for cashiers who may not understand. ~ thanks ForTheMommas
This week also marks the start of the +UP rewards. These are CRT coupons that will print out when you buy certain products and use your wellness card. These +UP rewards can be used on your next purchase for anything (think extra-care bucks). They DO have an expiration date, so do not forget to use them. There also appears to be no limit on to the number of +UP rewards you can get, BUT you may need to do them in separate transactions. I will update you more as we better understand the system.
