UPDATE: Rite Aid Pulls Vanilla Visa From Promo!! Corporate says it was a Misprint??!!

Next week Rite Aid is doing a “Buy & Save” Sale where you will earn a $20 +Up when you spend $100 or more on select products.  Well an AWESOME DEAL has come out of this!  My helper Cuckoo Jen found this deal:

Wow!  This is a cool deal!  Starting 1/1- 1/7 Rite Aid’s ad has a deal where you can buy a Vanilla Visa Gift Card for $100 and you get a $20 +Up!  It costs $6.95 to activate the card so you are actually making $13.05 on this deal! Double check your local ad to make sure they are participating in the deal BEFORE you purchase.  It will look just like the picture above if they are with the little symbol “Buy & Save” on it.

Here’s how it works and all the details:

Buy a $100 Vanilla Visa Card
You could buy smaller increments, but then you have activation fees for each card separately ($25 GC = $4.95 fee, $50 = $5.95 fee)
The card is activated by the cashier at the time of purchase.  Although it does say (in the cardholder agreement) that your funds will be available within 24 hours of purchase people are reporting that they have used it immediately after purchase on their next transaction.
Activiation fee charged will be $6.95
Pay:  $106.95 , Get $20 +UP
Final Price:  $13.05 money maker!!

You have to use have to use cash or a debit card only to buy the Visa Cards.   You cannot use previous +Up rewards to help you buy the card.   The only thing I am not clear on is the limit on how many times if you can do this deal.  No one I saw reported doing it more than once.  Some people say the limit is ONE per wellness card.  So it may be only one $20 +Up reward for the Buy & Save Program.

You can buy the Visa Card, get your $20 +UP reward and immediately use both the +UP and Vanilla Visa card on your next transaction.  $20 +Up will expire on 2/11/12 so you have over a month to use it!

IMPORTANT:  This deal has already started in parts of the county and been tested and is working!

TIP:  Since I normally wouldn’t just buy a $100 Visa Gift card to have on hand I’ll use my grocery money to buy it.  Then I’ll take it when I go grocery shopping to use!  That way I’m not spending extra, but it’s still a money maker!
