Rite-Aid Coupon Changes.....HEADS UP!
Rite-Aid has changed up the game.
Those AdPerks/Value Videos you watch to earn coupons?
About the Bonus $5 off $20 Purchase AdPerks Coupon.....don't bother printing that one more than once per month anymore.
Rite-Aid has changed that coupon. Now it is linked to your Wellness Card and has a unique serial number on each one that can be tracked when it is used.
Once you use it, that's it. You can't print multiples and use them. 1 of this coupon per account. The registers are now programmed at Rite-Aid to give a message to the cashier that this coupon has been redeemed already if you try to use it more than once.
For now, all the other AdPerks/Value Video Coupons are NOT this way, with a trackable unique serial number. In case you never noticed before these AdPerks/VV coupon serial numbers all end in the date of expiration.....ie--the ones that expire June 30th end in 63010, the ones that are set to expire July 24th end in 72410.
Reports are that if you printed out your Bonus $5 off $20 coupon that expires 7/24/10 earlier this month there is NO unique serial number. Rite-Aid made the change sometime during June so the early birds will be able to use all their prints.
While this sure throws a monkey wrench into all the die-hard Rite-Aid shoppers plans(not to mention the dread that blackened their hearts) this is NOT the end of the Rite-Aid Shopping World dear readers!
First off, if you have a Wellness card/account, your spouse or SO can also apply/get an account and set up their own AdPerks viewing account. By doing this, you go from access to 1 Bonus $5 off $20 Purchase coupon to 2 per month.
The last couple of months, there have been 2 $5 off $X Purchase coupons available in the AdPerks program. The Bonus $5 off $20 as well as a $5 off $25 when you watch the Wellness video.
So now you are up to 4 $5 off $X Purchase coupons.
Often Rite-Aid will release a $5 off $X Purchase coupon through REDPLUM &/or COUPONS dotcom.
You can print these coupons generally twice per computer, so that give you potential for 4 more $5 off $X coupons per month if you have access to 1 computer/printer set-up and both sites offer it in that month.
If you have multiple computers accessible to you, count on 2 more of this coupon per month when offered.
And though they haven't offered a PDF $5 off $X Purchase this year, Rite-Aid has in the past and there is always hope that they offer that again.
So while you will have to be more resourceful in the future finding these $5 off $X Purchase coupons, they are still a viable option.
