New Rite Aid reward program

Posted April 19, 2010

Well, it's official. Rite Aid now has a rewards program that is designed to compete with the many other stores offering such programs. The new reward plan is called wellness+ and you can sign up for your wellness+ reward card at any Rite Aid. Some other parts of NC have been test driving this program for a little while and it has just rolled out nationwide as of 4/18. I signed up for my card today and it took all of 5 minutes. I now have a shiny new rewards card on my 50 pound key chain. 

Here's how the program works:

Earn points every time you shop.  You earn 1 point for every dollar you spend on non-prescription purchases. Earn 25 points for every prescription you purchase.

The more points you earn, the more rewards you will get including:

  • For every 125 points you earn (up to 375), you get a one time 10% off shopping pass.
  • Once you reach 500 points you get 10% off all non-prescription purchases every day and you get free health screenings including a blood glucose and cholesterol screening.
  • Once you earn 1000 points you get 20% off all non-prescription purchases every day.

You will also receive these benefits as part of the program:

  • Members only sale pricing.
  • 10% off Rite Aid brand products every day.
  • 24/7 access to pharmacist when you call the 1-800 number they provide.
  • Coupons that print at the bottom of your reciept and are sent to you via e-mail.

There are, of course, some restrictions which can be found at the Rite Aid link in the gray box.

With this program we also have access to a number of printable Wellness coupons that can be coupled with manufacturer coupons and $5/$25 coupons, according to the store manager with whom I spoke today.

There is a lot of potential for great deals with this program and I look forward to seeing the deals and coupons they offer to members. As with any new program, I am sure there will be lots of questions. For now, all I know is what is on the website. If you have questions, feel free to post them and I will do my best to find out the answers. Happy saving!

Oh - I earned 1 point today buying free TGIF snacks (using printable coupon posted in the drug store deals for the week) and 75% off Easter items. :-)

    You are so right, Nancy. Competition is a very good thing.

    When shopping Sunday, I had a cashier bring it to my attention and signed me up :) Woohoo! Another one joins the fray of trying to attract customers with bonus efforts.

    I love the 'competition' we have for our dollars, we always come out ahead!
