Reader Amy let me know to be on the lookout for a new coupon policy from Rite Aid and I just got it in an email from them this morning.
Here is the big change that they made:
Buy One Get One Free coupons cannot be used in conjunction with a Buy One Get One Free promotion
So that is a bummer. Now you better sit down for this one:
Rite Aid may accept up to 4 identical coupons for the same number of qualifying items as long as there is sufficient stock to satisfy other customers within the store manager’s sole discretion.
I am going to post the entire coupon policy below for you to see. You can print a copy of the Rite Aid Coupon Policy here. If you want to cross reference the previous Rite Aid Coupon Policy– I will leave it up here for a few more days.
Does anyone else see any other big changes?

To Our Valued Customers:
Rite Aid gladly accepts the following coupon types as detailed in the coupon acceptance guidelines listed below:
*Manufacturer coupons are found in newspapers, magazines and even affixed to products. The UPC on these coupons
begins with a “5.”
Rite Aid Manufacturer Coupons
Rite Aid Manufacturer coupons generally appear in our weekly circular, on our website and are sent to customers via
email. These coupons are labeled “manufacturer coupon” and have a UPC that begins with “49.”
Rite Aid Valuable Coupons
Rite Aid coupons are labeled “Valuable Coupon” and have a UPC that begins with “48.”
Internet/Print at Home coupons
Rite Aid will accept internet / print at home coupons up to the equivalent value of $5.00 off.
A Rite Aid coupon (with the Rite Aid logo) is NOT considered an internet coupon (even if printed off the internet) and is
therefore not subject to the $5.00 maximum.
+UP Reward Coupons
+UP Reward coupons are special coupons earned by a customer in a prior purchase that can be used for any nonprescription purchase with a small number of exclusions that are listed on the +UP coupon. Multiple +UP coupons can
be used (subject to the printed exclusions) up to the amount of purchase before sales tax.
Buy One, Get One Free
Rite Aid accepts Buy One, Get One Free coupons, however only one coupon can be used for each pair of items
purchased. A customer can use one “cents off” coupon in conjunction with the item they are purchasing on a Buy One
Get One Free promotion (or with a Buy One Get One Free coupon), although the value of the cents off coupon cannot
exceed the selling price of the item.
Buy One Get One Free coupons cannot be used in conjunction with a Buy One Get One Free promotion.
Total Purchase Coupons
Rite Aid may feature total purchase coupons which discount the total purchase amount based upon meeting specific
requirements. For example, $5 off a $25 purchase price threshold coupon.
These coupons are accepted under the following conditions:
o The coupon is valid and in date; only one total purchase coupon per transaction.
o Total purchase equals or exceeds $25 before tax (before any coupons are applied).
o Coupons for individual items can also be used including another “48” coupon that is tied to an item in the
o Provided the total of items purchased is equal to or greater than the purchase requirement, other coupons can
be used in conjunction with the total purchase coupon.
Coupons must be valid and in date; Coupons cannot be exchanged for cash.
Register will validate coupon through scanning or keyed entry of the coupon UPC number.
In the event that any item’s selling price is less than the value of the coupon, Rite Aid will accept the coupon in exchange
for the selling price of the item. Coupon redemption can never exceed the selling price of an item and no cash back is
When making a return for a product that had a coupon attached, Rite Aid cannot refund cash for the value of the
coupon and cannot return the coupon that was used.
Rite Aid reserves the right to not accept any coupon where the validity or the coupon cannot be established.
More than one coupon can be used on the purchase of a single item under the following conditions:
o All coupons match the item being purchased.
o The total of the coupons is equal to or less than the selling price of the item before sales tax.
No more than one “48” Rite Aid Valuable coupon, one “49” Rite Aid Manufacturer coupon, and one “5” Manufacturer
coupon can be used on a single item. Rite Aid may accept up to 4 identical coupons for the same number of qualifying
items as long as there is sufficient stock to satisfy other customers within the store manager’s sole discretion.
