Internet/Print at Home coupons
  • Rite Aid will accept Internet/print at home coupons up to the equivalent value of $5.00 off.
  • A Rite Aid coupon (with the Rite Aid logo) is NOT considered an Internet coupon (even if printed off the Internet) and is therefore not subject to the $5.00 maximum.
+UP Reward Coupons
  • +UP Reward coupons are special coupons earned by a customer in a prior purchase that can be used for any nonprescription purchase with a small number of exclusions that are listed on the +UP coupon. Multiple +UP coupons can be used (subject to the printed exclusions) up to the amount of purchase before sales tax.
Buy One, Get One Free
  • Rite Aid accepts Buy One, Get One Free coupons, however only one coupon can be used for each pair of items purchased.  A customer can use one “cents off” coupon in conjunction with the item they are purchasing on a Buy One Get One Free promotion (or with a Buy One Get One Free coupon), although the value of the cents off coupon cannot exceed the selling price of the item.
  • Buy One Get One Free coupons cannot be used in conjunction with a Buy One Get One Free promotion.
Total Purchase Coupons
  • Rite Aid may feature total purchase coupons which discount the total purchase amount based upon meeting specific requirements. For example, $5 off a $25 purchase price threshold coupon.
  • These coupons are accepted under the following conditions:
    • The coupon is valid and in date; only one total purchase coupon per transaction.
    • Total purchase equals or exceeds $25 before tax (before any coupons are applied).
    • Coupons for individual items can also be used including another “48″ coupon that is tied to an item in the transaction.
    • Provided the total of items purchased is equal to or greater than the purchase requirement, other coupons can be used in conjunction with the total purchase coupon.
General Guidelines:
  • Coupons must be valid and in date; Coupons cannot be exchanged for cash.
  • Register will validate coupon through scanning or keyed entry of the coupon UPC number.
  • In the event that any item’s selling price is less than the value of the coupon, Rite Aid will accept the coupon in exchange for the selling price of the item. Coupon redemption can never exceed the selling price of an item and no cash back is allowed.
  • When making a return for a product that had a coupon attached, Rite Aid cannot refund cash for the value of the coupon and cannot return the coupon that was used.
  • Rite Aid reserves the right to not accept any coupon where the validity or the coupon cannot be established.
Multiple Coupons
  • More than one coupon can be used on the purchase of a single item under the following conditions:
    • All coupons match the item being purchased.
    • The total of the coupons is equal to or less than the selling price of the item before sales tax.
  • No more than one “48″ Rite Aid valuable coupon, one “49″ Rite Aid Manufacturer coupon, and one “5″manufacturer coupon can be used on a single item.

Yes that was my total before sales and couponz....let me just tell you how I was feeling when I saw that total on the screen....

I felt as though I had made a HUGE mistake somewhere. 

 I thought there is NO WAY I am paying for this...I DON'T WANT to pay that much for all this stuff!!!  

My face got so red...what was I going to tell this poor cashier?  "Oh I am sorry, I changed my mind I don't want this stuff."  

Sorry for the quality of my picture.  I took it with my phone.
I handed him my coupons....

I couldn't watch, even though I HAD to make sure everything was coming off correctly!  

All of a sudden BEEP BEEP BEEP

What's happening, I asked him.

He said your Coke coupon has expired...

WHAT?!?!?  No I am so good at that PLUS I just got it out of this weeks flyer.

He checks the date...oh it is for the 21st and today is the 19th...Let me call my manager

The poor people behind me....she smiles and says "Well Dear we have to save where we can."  

Baby starts screaming...I start screaming inside my head....

Manager comes over and says Oh this coupon is for our NY stores...WHOOPS I didn't even know they had different coupons!  I told her I didn't need the Coke, but she nicely honored the coupon.  


  Thank you!  (I bet the baby screaming helped me out on this one)

OK your grand total is...........$56.52

What?!?  There is no 1 hundred in front of that?  OK I will not make you put all this stuff away...I will pay you $56.52!  

Thanks Price Chopper!
