(Thanks to I Heart Rite Aid for the picture above!)

I am sure most of you who shop at Rite Aid have noticed that Rite Aid recently introduced the new Wellness + UP Rewards program on a national level! In order to provide you with more information about the program, I made a +UP Reward purchase of my own and also contacted Rite Aid by email and phone (1-800-RITE-AID). Here is what I discovered…

My +UP Reward Purchase
I went to my local Rite Aid and browsed through the current circular to find an advertised UP+ Reward item. I then purchased a bottle of Trident Gum for $2.99 which was advertised to generate a $1 +UP Reward.

As you can see from my receipt below, my purchase generated essentially 3 +UP Reward coupons: $1/$10 or more Seasonal purchase, $1/$10 or more Household purchase, AND the advertised $1 off any non-prescription purchase (note that Cadbury owns Trident gum so this is why the $1 +UP Reward states “from purchase of Cadbury”).

+UP Rewards Guidelines
* The new +UP Reward program is an incentive program that allows manufacturers to provide a +UP Reward to consumers for buying a specific product and/or specific number of products. Every week, different items are advertised in the weekly circular that generate a +UP Reward. (This program is very similar to the Walgreens Register Reward program)

* You MUST give the cashier your Wellness card or the phone # associated with your Wellness card prior to the items being scanned in order to be eligible for the +UP Reward(s)

* The +UP Reward consists of a coupon or a number of coupons that print at the bottom of your receipt and can be used on your NEXT purchase.

* Each advertised +UP Reward is limited to 1 per wellness card (unless otherwise stated).

* According to Rite Aid Customer Service, you CAN use both a $5/$25 Rite Aid purchase AND a $1/$10 Household purchase coupon in the same transaction. However, it is always up to the manager’s discretion to make the final decision.

* There is no limit to the number of +Up Rewards redeemed in a single transaction so long as the pretax total is greater than the combined value of the +UP Rewards. For easy understanding, it’s best to think of these rewards as gift cards, except that you cannot leave a balance on them or use them to purchase less than the value of the +UP Reward .

Please share your thoughts about the new +UP Rewards program below.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
