Are you ready to jump into couponing at Rite Aid? Here’s your getting started guide!
You can find the weekly matchups for Rite Aid here.
#1: Sign up for your own RITE AID Plenti Card. You can sign up on online or in store, but signing up in store means you get your card right away to use. Using your Plenti card allows you to receive items at the advertised sale price, as well as earn Plenti Points. Plenti cards are limit one per household, so if you already have a card, you don’t need to get a new one.
#2: Register your card online here and opt in to receive Plenti emails so that you can receive special email offers. Make sure to link your Plenti card to any other partners they have that you do business with, such as AT&T, Nationwide, or Hulu. Linking your card to your accounts will help you earn Plenti points for paying your cell phone bill, pumping gas, or buying groceries.
#3: Register for the Rite Aid Plenti Plus Wellness program here. You will also link your Plenti card to the Wellness program, to ensure that you get the promotional pricing in store. You will also get money-saving offers from Rite Aid and the option to load manufacture coupons directly to your card.
Rite Aid also has a wellness+ points system that allows you to earn additional savings off of non sale Rite Aid and major brand items. You earn one wellness+ point for each dollar you spend at Rite Aid and 25 wellness+ points for each prescription you fill.
Wellness+ points reset at the end of each year, but all earned Silver and Gold status discounts remain active through the end of the next calendar year.
#4: Link your Plenti card to Saving Star and Ibotta. Rite Aid automatically notifies these two rebate apps of your purchases so make sure you activate any rebate offers before you go shopping! You can go here for a full list of rebate apps and more details on how they work!
#5: Download the Plenti and Rite Aid apps to your cell phone or tablet. There are often special partner offers you can activate through the Plenti app or website. The Plenti app also allows you to track your points balance and have a digital copy of your Plenti card.
The Rite Aid app allows you to track your wellness+ points, and to utilize the load to card (L2C) manufacture coupons. These coupons are manufacture coupons, and can’t be stacked with your paper coupons. Because the L2C coupons come off automatically, only load ones you know you will use. For instance, if you have a .50 Tide L2C coupon and a $2 printable Tide, the .50 L2C would come off and you wouldn’t be able to use your $2 printable unless you purchased a second Tide.
#6: Familiarize yourself with the Rite Aid Coupon Policy here. Quick summary: Rite Aid limits you to 4 like coupons per transaction and you can’t use a BOGO coupon on a BOGO or a BOGO 50% off sale. Heads up: the policy references “Valuable Coupons” or “48 coupons” but they are no longer offered.
#7: Check your ad for in-ad coupons. You can stack the in-ad coupons with a manufacture coupon. In ad coupons are limit one per person.
#8: After your purchase, wait a second for any Catalinas to print. Often, you may get special manufacture coupons, Catalina offers for your next purchase, or even Rite Aid Store Catalinas such as $4 off a $20 purchase!
#9: Check your receipt! After your purchase, review your receipt. At the top of your receipt you will see the breakdown of your transaction, and any Plenti Points you used. Sometimes, there will be coupons that print on your receipt such as $1.00 off of L’oreal Shampoo (you can use stack these with manufacture coupons!). At the bottom of your receipt, will be the tracking for any Plenti Point deals you have done this week.
Let’s take a second to talk about the Rite Aid store coupons and how they work.
We see in store ad coupons the most at Rite Aid. This will be a coupon you will physically need to hand to the cashier, so make sure you pick up an ad when you walk in or bring one from the Sunday newspaper. The cashier will need to keep the in ad coupon.
Rite Aid also emails coupons out to customers. Not all customers will receive email coupons.
So now you have accumulated quite a few Rite Aid coupons, let’s go over an example of how they work!
Let’s say in the Rite Aid ad you received there is an in ad coupon offer for $1 off Colgate Toothpaste. You check the Rite Aid matchups and see that Colgate is on sale for $2.50 and when you buy one you will earn 100 Plenti Points ($1.00). There is also a .50 Manufacture coupon in the latest Smart Source insert.
You also see in the match ups that All Detergent is on sale for $2.99 and when you spend $15 you will earn 700 Plenti Points. We have a Saving Star offer for $2 when you spend $10 on All Detergent and you have a $4/20 Catalina and several $2/2 All Detergent Manufacture coupons.
This is what your transaction would look like:
Buy 1 Colgate at $2.50
Buy 6 All Detergent at $2.99=$17.94
Total before coupons will be $20.44 plus tax
Have the cashier scan your $4/20 Catalina Coupon
Have the cashiers scan your $1 Colgate in ad coupon
Have the cashier scan your .50 Colgate Manufacture coupon
Have the cashier scan 3 $2/2 All Manufacture coupons
Your total would be $8.94 plus tax and you would earn 800 Plenti Points and a $2 Saving Star Rebate!
How do Plenti Points work ?
Plenti Points can be redeemed in any increment once you have accumulated 200 ($2.00) points. Each point is worth a penny. Plenti Points cannot be redeemed until the day after you earn them. Plenti Points will even pay your taxes, so there is a possibility of paying zero OOP at the register! Plenti Points expire on December 31 after the second full year of earning.
You can earn Plenti Points on purchases where you redeem Plenti Points (rolling points).
