Part of the ABC’s of Couponing Guide
Let’s break couponing down to be fun and easy, not extreme and time-consuming!

Have you ever ran to the store to score an awesome deal, then find the store is sold out? Before you start to pout, think about getting a rain check.

A rain check is a slip of paper that you can get from a store when they are out of an item that is on sale. The slip of paper allows you to come back when they have the item back in stock to purchase it for the sale price.  Often the store associate will sign the piece of paper to verify it since it won’t have a barcode.

So even after the sale ends, you can come back and get the item for the sale price!  Sounds great, but keep in mind:

  • Check your coupons expiration dates!  No use going through the trouble of getting a rain check if the coupons you need to get the cuckoo deal will be expired by the time the store is back in stock.
  • Items on Buy 10, get $4 off sales usually you will not be able to get rain checks on, unless you plan on getting all 10 items on the raincheck.
  • Clearance items aren’t valid for rain checks.  Only sale prices.
  • Register rewards from Walgreens, and Plenti Points from Rite Aid are not eligible for rain checks.
  • EB’s at CVS are eligible for rain checks.   I cut the ad out so I remember what it is I wanted, and what the limits are so when I go to redeem the rain check I make sure to get the correct items and EB’s.

Next time you are in a store for a sale and it is wiped out, think about getting a rain check! Then when you go to use the raincheck, tell the cashier before you swipe the groceries so the cashier can scan them correctly.

If you go back to the store and the items still are not back in stock, make sure to request to have the rain check expiration date extended.   On great sales you may have to extend these for several weeks.

To view individual stores rain check policies, view my store coupon policies!
