Rite Aid Basics

Bargain hunting at Rite Aid is fairly simple. Rite Aid has a rewards program called Single Check Rebates (SCR). Customers make their purchases in the store then enter 3 numbers from their receipt online. At the end of the month, customers can request their check which is mailed within 2-3 weeks.

How to get started
  • Set up an online myRiteAid account here.
  • Log in and check what rebates are offered for this month here.
  • Find any coupons you have for rebate items.
  • Go shopping.
  • Log in and enter receipt information here.
  • At the end of the month, check rebate status and request a check here (can be done at any time during the month. Note that once a check is requested, no more rebates will post for the month so be careful you have none pending before requesting).

  • Pay attention to the dates of the rebate offer. Some are open for multiple months, some just a week.
  • Watch for freebies! Sometimes a product will have the full value offered as a rebate. Get there fast! These go quickly! Some products will be free after coupon and rebate. Once again, these products sell out quickly.
  • Watch for special in store coupons. Rite Aid puts coupons in their newspaper inserts (also at store) plus on their website. There are also coupons that come out for gift cards for prescription transfers as well as occasional $5 off $25 purchase coupons.
  • Watch for diabetes meter coupons. This concept may sound strange, but it can be a win-win situation. Pair a meter coupon with a meter sale for a free meter (often a Bayer Contour meter on sale for $20 plus a $20 coupon from the paper). The meter helps get the total purchase high. When paired with a $5/$25 coupon, the $5 above the $20 meter is free. Make sure cashier rings all items then scans the $5/$25 coupon FIRST then scans all other coupons. To make it a win-win, if you do not need the meter yourself, give it to a friend or family member who does need it or donate it. Many shelters and women's clinics and churches can use them to give to those in need.
