Plenti CardRite Aid’s Coupon Policy:

  • Plenti Points (Rewards): Plenti Points are not be redeemable until 6 am the next morning after they are earned.  You can continue to shop weekly and roll the rewards.
  • A customer can sign up in-store, and then complete the sign up process online or sign up at riteaid.com/Plenti, Plenti.com or the Plenti Mobile App. The sign up process will be done at the register or with a Wellness Ambassador within the store. You will then be emailed a link to complete the sign up process. While completing the online sign up process, you will also create a pin that you can use to redeem your rewards with just your phone number in case you don’t have your card with you. Completing the sign up process will also give you relevant offers to help you boost points! If you do not complete the online sign up process, you can still earn rewards but you will be unable to redeem them.
  • Every December 31st, points that are older than 2 years will expire. This means you have AT LEAST 2 years to use them!!
  • You only need one card to earn and use points at all participating retailers. This will make it easy to earn and redeem your points without having a bunch of different cards to keep track of.
  • You must have $2.00 in Plenti Points to be able to redeem them. With one item offering 100 points, ($1.00) it should not be difficult at all to hit the $2.00 threshold for redemption.
  • Plenti Points can take off as much as you want including tax leaving you with a ZERO balance.
  • You must have a phone number attached to your Wellness+ with Plenti Card.Only one Wellness+ with Plenti Card can be associated with each phone number.
  • Frequently Asked Question: “For the +Plenti rewards that have a dollar amount attached, like “Spend $15 get 500 ($5) Plenti Points”, does that have to be in one transaction, or does it keep track via your Wellness card that you have already purchased qualifying items, and once the dollar amount is reached, you get the Plenti Points?”   Answer: It can be done in separate transactions.  It keeps track on your card for Threshold deals. If an offer says you need to buy 2 to get Plenti points you would need to buy 2 in the same transaction.
  • Can we use “Plenti” rewards on the very NEXT day after 6 am.  You can “roll” your UP catalina rewards and save them for about 2 weeks (this is how long they are usually valid) and wait for another hot sale to use the Plenti rewards on.  This often leads to lots of freebies!
  • Plenti Points automatically load onto your card. It will show at the bottom of your receipt how many you have.
  • Scan your Plenti Card first. The points don’t come off automatically. It asks if you want to use points and shows you your balance. You can choose to use them or save them. It’s a form of actual payment and shows up on your receipt as a partial credit card transaction with your Plenti Card number as the form of payment. So if you owed $5.83 and you had over that amount in points, you can pay for the whole thing including tax with those points for a zero balance. Or you could opt to save up your points and choose to pay with a different method. Or you could choose to pay part of it with the points and another payment for the rest.
  • “Wellness + Plenti Rewards Card” must be scanned to get in-store best prices and Plenti rewards.  These are FREE. Plus they give you up to 10% off everyday Rite Aid Brand purchases!
  • Wellness+ with Plenti Members will receive members-only sale prices as well as earn points toward the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Wellness Discounts. When you reach Gold Membership, you receive 20% off regular prices for a full year! You can  load the Load2Card Coupons right onto your Wellness+ with Plenti Card.
  • BOGO: When items are featured on a Buy One, Get One Free promotion, up to two coupons can be used against the items being purchased, as long as the net price does not go below zero for the item being purchased.— more BOGO info: If a customer presents a Buy One Get One Free coupon for the purchase of two items that are on a Buy One Get One Free promotion; we accept the coupon, essentially making both items free, although you must pay tax if applicable. UPDATE: They changed the policy so you can no longer use a BOGO free coupon on a BOGO free promotion :(

In-depth BOGO free coupon policy info:

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.

Here is some clarity as I understand the policy {confirmed with Rite Aid Rep}

Scenario: Purex is on sale – Buy One, Get One Free.  The shelf price is $6.99.


Buy (2) Purex Detergent Buy One, Get One Free $6.99
Use $1.00/1 manufacturer coupon
Pay $5.99 for two

Buy (4) Purex Detergent Buy One, Get One Free $13.98
Use $1.00/2 manufacturer coupon


Buy (2) Purex Detergent Buy One, Get One Free $6.99
Use $1.00/ 2 coupon

Buy (2) Purex Detergent Buy One, Get One Free $6.99
Use (2) $1.00/1 manufacturer coupon

I hope this clears the BOGO policy with a “cents off” coupon. You CAN use two cents off coupons on a BOGO 50% off sale. You CAN’T use a BOGO free coupon on a BOGO 50% off sale.

  • Will take printable Internet coupons
  • Don’t need to have as many products as coupons like Walgreens!
  • Rite Aid may accept up to 4 identical coupons for the same number of qualifying items as long as their is sufficient stock within the store managers discretion.
  • Does not match competitors ads or prices
  • Does not take other stores in-store coupons
  • Rainchecks: Rite Aid rainchecks should be issued for the “after Plenti rewards” price on them, so you are essentially getting your Plenti+ rewards!
  • UPromise has teamed up with Rite Aid.  Login to your Upromise account (or create one), then:
  1. Enter your 11-digit Rite Aid Wellness Card Number (numerical digits only)
  2. Click on the “My Account” link (upper right corner)
  3. Click on “Add Grocery Card” link (on the left side bar)
  4. Simply select the eCoupons for products that you think you will purchase.  These stay the same all month, so I login on the first of the month and select them all, then if I happen to buy that item, the coupon gets used.
  5. Buy activated eCoupon products at Rite Aid, and then scan your registered card at check-out and get college savings!
  6. Remember, UPromise coupons CAN be stacked with in-store and manufacturer’s coupons.
  7. The UPromise coupons don’t come off your total, instead they are put in an account for your children’s/grandchildren’s  college fund.

    Love Rite Aid!

  • Nicole

    Wish I had one closer seems like tons of good deals

  • Amy (catchu777)

    Rite Aid is a bit confusing. I just started shopping here and I haven’t master their couponing system yet. Thanks for the tips.

  • Shanna Bailes

    I love Rite Aid. I used to shop at Rite Aid all the time, then we moved to Florida and no Rite Aid :(

  • Joeynineball

    when shopping at rite aid…. can you stack one manufactures coupon plus two different rite aid brand coupons together….

    ex… claritin manu coupon 7.00 off + riteaid manu coupon 4.00 off + another riteaid manu coupon 2.00 off any claritin product.

    • deidre

      only one rite aid coupon and one manufacturer per item you’re buying will work

  • joeynineball

    when shopping at vons, alberts, ralphs ect… say i have a coupon for save 35cents on and comet product and vons has a deal for comet at….

    Comet Cleanser, 17 to 21-oz. | $1.00
    – 35¢/1 from SS 1/23
    Final Price: 30¢

    how many can i buy with the single coupon…? if it is more than one does the register read that and calculate every comet product to the same coupon code..? is this how must stores work as long as the store states a limit…? or do u need a coupon for every item purchased?

    • deidre

      you need a coupon for every item purchased. The only exception that I know of is a Walgreen’s store coupon will ring up for as many items as you buy (they may limit it at 4 or so depending on what the ad says)

  • anne conover

    I have to say that Rite Aid looks so confusing and I haven’t delved into it yet but this explanation helps a lot and I may have to try it soon. I like your tutorial better than most I’ve seen!

  • Joeynineball

    well then i am confused… watching the TLC show tonight the guy went into the grocery store and bought vitamin water on sale at 99 cents… he had a coupon for one dollar off the product… so he was actually getting the product for fee. He bought 40 of them… so does that mean he had 40 1 dollar off coupons for every vitamin water he bought!?! unreal…

    • deidre

      Yes, you can go online to places like mycouponhunter.com and purchase 40 coupons at one time for a product. People do this a lot. Not me, I get 4 copies of the newspaper and that is all.

  • Claudia

    Ok, so I called the Rite Aid closest to my home in Southern California and they checked-Yes, other manufact. coupons are taken!! Yay!!!

  • Susie Riffle

    Can you use your RiteAid card AND the UPromise card on the same transaction?

    • deidre


  • Rose Terry

    Can you please tell me where to get and where to find the $5/25 for Rite Aid? I’ve looked all over the Rite Aid site and Coupons. com Thank you!

  • Tara

    I am just starting out the couponing thing but I have had my +UP rewards card for a couple of months and now I am finally noticing how much money I am saving. I have one important question though on the Rite Aid receipt towards the bottom there is a line that says “Your Wellness+ Savings: 23.03″ is that just how much I have saved so far or can that amount be ducted from a future purchase ? A receipt breakdown post would be pretty cool to see thanks D !

  • Jenifer

    I have a question about peelies. I am pretty familiar with Rite Aid’s multiple coupons, but yesterday I went to Rite Aid and the Resolve had peelies on them. A fellow couponer came up behind me and said “get the ones with the coupon, you can use a store coupon with your manufacturer coupon.” My thought was that peelies are manufacturer coupons, not store coupons. I took it to the cashier and asked her if I could use the peelies with my coupon from the newspaper and she put all the coupons in, but there was a lot of typing on the computer and I think she forced it through. What is your take on this? The peelie was a “9” manufacturer coupon. I would not consider that a store coupon, and I would guess that this should not have been used with another manufacturer coupon. Just want another opinion—the next cashier might not be so obliging! Thanks for your input.

    • deidre

      Those are manufacturer’s coupons unless they say Rite Aid coupon at the top, I have seen a few of those at rite aid but not so much lately

  • Anne

    Question about the video value coupons…If I have a $1 off Excedrin VV and I buy two Excedrin, will it take a $1 off each or just $1 off one?

  • Tambra Coons

    I wanna win that swag soooo bad!

  • VeronicA

    Question, just starting with couponing, I forgot my welness card at Rite Aid but gave them my phone number. On my receipt it says I have 73 wellness+ point total is that the same as the UP rewards?

    • deidre

      no those just add up like if you get a bunch you can then get 10% off

  • Lee Anne

    Just wanted to note that at Rite Aid today, there was a BOGO sale on select Arm & Hammer oral care with a $5+up when you buy $10. I purchased TWO Spinbrushes (B1G1@$8.99) and TWO Orajel MyWay (B1G1@$3.99) toothpastes. I had 4 – $1/1 cpns from 10/23 SS. I asked the mgr if I could use them all on the B1G1 sale, he said “Go ahead and try but I don’t think it will if you’re getting one free”….BUT IT DID!! I was ecstatic! I don’t know if it works at every store, but it can’t hurt to try. I wouldn’t have been heartbroken if it didn’t, since I was using previous +UPs, and my cashier was so nice. I heart Rite Aid!

  • susan

    I just started doing the up points and I am confused! If I bought $20 of qualifying products (say Revlon cosmetics) and got $6 up rewards and I bought $15 of qualifying different products (say Excedrine medicines) and got $5 in a single transaction. That would be $11 up points right? Can I get $46 (less with coupons) worth of products for $35? Can I do that or separate transactions?

  • swiss watch guide

    Woah this blog is magnificent i really like reading your posts. Keep up the good work! You recognize, a lot of individuals are looking around for this information, you can aid them greatly.

  • LS

    I shop at Rite Aid frequently and never had a problem using all my up rewards as long as the amount was less then my total bill. Today I spent about $40 at Rite Aid and had $18 in up rewards. The cashier said she can only accept 4 up rewards per transaction. I checked with the manager and he said that that’s company policy. Is that something new? I now have about 10 $1 up rewards. If that’s the case I will have to split up my orders.

  • Rosa

    I just have to say, your videos are so informative and helpful. You really are a pro, Deidre!

  • Jic414

    If you do not use the entire amount of your +UP total on the next transacation does the balance roll over into a new coupon to use on the next transaction or does it “disappear”?

  • Yana

    Can I make a wellness card in store, or do I have to wait for them to mail one to me?

  • Siovbion

    Where are the RA coupons that you show can be stacked with the mfg coupons?? I have the circular but i don’t see those coupons…

  • cassi

    I am curious if rite aid has a sale on a razor for b1g1 50%off, could I use a b1g1 coupon and a 3.00 off coupon?

    • http://cuckooforcoupondeals.com/ Deidre


  • bluecastle

    Is there a place where they advertise montlhy up deals? You seem to mention them alot, but I don’t seem to find them at my store and the cashiers don’t know about them.

    Thanks for all your work on this, Deidre.


    • HelperJen

      You find them on tags in the store. They look just like the tags that advertise the weekly deals, but if you look at the fine print on them they have dates that last a full month. The ones for this month will have the dates 10/3 – 10/30 on them.

      • bluecastle

        There is a deal that was reported this week for Loreal Everhair products..buy $25 get $10 up. I guess this is supposed to be a weekly and monthly at the same time this week? Will it show both date ranges on the tag? 10/7 – 10-13 and 10/3 – 10/30?

        Thanks for your help, HelperJen!

        • HelperJen

          Yes I went and looked at the tags this week. They have different dates just like you say. Sometimes the tags on one on top of the other, too.

  • mindy

    Hi, will rite aid take a catalina coupon from shaws? I have one for $4/2 pantenes. Thanks!

    • HelperJen


      • Mindy Watkins

        ok thanks!

  • Kat

    Just went to RiteAid today for the first time in a long time. Signed up for their Wellness program and got a card. Something has changed or different in my area as my +UP wasn’t printed at the bottom of my receipt. Instead it says “$2.00 +UP Reward has been loaded to your card from the purchase of XXX, Good 12/1/12 thru 12/14/14″. So for my area at least, I have to wait til the next day (bought those items on 11/30/12) to use my +UP so I can’t do the multi order method of using them, and they aren’t in a form of a coupon but added in a total onto my card. Only a week to use them by too.

  • JEnglund

    I have a couple different questions. 1. My rite aid clerks have a policy that as long as it scans they will take it and don’t need to break it up into multiple transactions. (does the store still get paid this way?) Should I insist on breaking up the transactions. 2. My wife and I both do the video value coupons. We still run both coupons under my account as mine is the gold account. My store clerk has no problem using multiple Video value coupons on 1 transaction as it does not flag there computer. Should I stop doing this and is this something that can get my store in trouble if I don’t? How is it tracked?

    • HelperJen

      It is up to each store Manager. Some Rite Aids do allow it and others are more strict. I don’t know if Rite Aid gets paid for the Video Value coupons or if they are just discounting their product. Manufacturer coupons are actually paid to the store.

  • tdhenson

    As of now I have not opt out on my Up rewards loading to my card. Is this something I should consider & Do you have to spend all of your +UP rewards that are loaded to your card in one transaction to keep from loosing them? For example, I have $37 +Up rewards loaded on my card from my last transaction. When I go next week I’m not sure if there will be enough deals that I would purchase to equal the $37 in +Ups I have accumulated. Will the register only use enough for what my purchase is and save the others for another time before their expiration date or will I loose the remaining ones. Thanks in advance

    • HelperJen

      You do not have to spend them all in one transaction. They will however use them in the increments you go them in. For instance if you have a $5 +Up if will wait until you have $5 in purchases before it will use it. If you have a $5 +Up and a $2 +Up and your total is $5.38 then it will use the $5 and you pay $0.38 OOP and saves the $2 +Up until the expiration date. Hope this helps!

      • tdhenson

        Thanks for the info

  • New Shopper

    I am VERY new at this…
    Can I EARN +UP points…if….
    I am USING +UP points to pay for the purchase?

    • http://cuckooforcoupondeals.com/ Deidre

      yes you can

      • New Shopper

        Great thankyou….because I know you cant earn Walgreens balance rewards if you are redeeming balance rewards….that makes rite-aid a pretty good deal

  • Viki

    Hi, can you buy Milk at Rite Aid with +UP points? I know you can’t at Walgreens, but I didn’t find anything about it on Rite Aid page, or maybe I just can’t see it…

    • Elizarae

      It will vary depending on state laws. If it’s not allowed at Walgreens, it’s likely not allowed at Rite Aid.

      • Viki

        ok, thx

    • HelperJen

      Yes you can.

      • Viki

        really? thx, that’s great, I’ll be heading to Rite Aid tomorrow ;)

  • Nicole

    I just got riteaides Purex buy one get 2 free and I was able to use 2 $3/2 for this purchase!

  • mimi

    I am still confused about the load 2 card coupons…they never seem to come off my card when I purchase the item. if I have 3paper coupons and 1manufactor coupn on the card for 4 products it never takes the one off the card, am I doing something wrong

    • HelperJen

      It doesn’t sound like it. You should call Rite Aid customer service and ask why.
