  1. My Rite Aid [in seattle] has been requiring me to wait until the next day all along for my Up’s. I have learned to GO THE NEXT DAY or I will forget about them and they expire so fast!

    This week i made three trips and bought in order… based on what they had most of in stock (stock was low so I bought mouthwash and razors, then the next day I grabbed shampoo) on my final return trip I had 8 Up’s and nothing left to buy!

    My kids were elated to score toys off the clearance table because there wasnt anything else in the store that I could get a good deal on. It was like getting free toys!

    Welcome to the frustrating side of Rite Aid’s new Up’s policy: having Ups and nothing left to buy or having stuff to buy and having it goe OUT of stock by then time you return to use your Ups. Its a bummer….

    • Agreed it stinks. Especially for those of us who had little tiny kids and can’t possibly run to the store everyday. Or my mother-in-law who is mobility-impaired and can hardly manage one trip a week out of the house, let alone multiple. :(

    • It’s the same with me in Tacoma. I can ‘t use them until the next day.

    Hey girls!!! Good news!!! I called Rite Aid Directly, (1800riteaid) and asked them to opt out of the new policy….they did it!!! Thought you would love to know :)BTW I’m a huge fan of your website!!!

  3. This week, the in-ad coupon was actually a manufacturer coupon … see the bar code = 0074300-027065 … and not the usual RA coupon.
    And $1/1 Visine in-ad coupon
    And $2/1 Visine Product or Soothing Wipes Product (RP 07/29/12 #2)

  4. Will Rite Aid have the Gift of SAvings program this DEcember 2011
