RITE-AID’S NEW COUPON POLICY

26 May

Here’s the new official Rite-Aid Coupon Policy.  Sooooo sad, but I’m sure we’ll still be able to get great deals.  I am the most disappointed about the use of only 1 coupon on B1G1 sales.  That will really cramp my style.  I am glad, though, about the limit of 4 like coupons.  Means there might actually be sale items on the shelves!

    I agree Janelle. I’m pretty bummed about the bogo change. Wonder if they will amend it if there is enough complaints?? I’m glad about the limit of items though, it’ll help with being able to actually get some big deals! I made out last night at CVS (paid $7 and left with $20.99 ECB) and Rite Aid (glad I went last night and not today!!)

    I knooooowwww. So disappointing. From reading a lot of comments on other blogs, it seems this is in response to that Extreme Couponing show (people have obviously been abusing the system and they are figuring it out). Also the manufacturers are apparently pressuring Rite-Aid (and I’m sure soon everyone else) to limit their coupon acceptance. So it will just get harder. But hey, then it’s even more fun when you get a REALLY GREAT DEAL!

      Very true…I’m curious how the stores are reimbursed for the sales. Does the store or the manufacturer take the loss on a store promotion? I guess if the manufacturer has to cover both I understand; however, I thought that the store covers the promotion, and the manufacturer covers the coupon, in which case neither one is actually losing more money.

      Love your blog, btw. Thanks for sharing!

    I believe you are correct. The store foots the bill for its own promotion, and the manufacturer foots the bill for any coupons. However, I think that the Video Values coupons are ultimately reimbursed by the manufacturer, and the +UPs and ECB’s and Register Rewards are, too. Also some of the store coupons have a remit address to the manufacturer, so even though we are stacking store with manufacturer Q’s, they are actually paying for both of them in the end.

    Thanks for liking my blog 🙂 When I am rich and famous, you can remember that you were THE FIRST person to post a comment and to subscribe to my emails!!!! Maybe I’ll even hire you to answer my millions of emails!
