  • Using Rite Aid’s Single Check Rebate program for the first time + this week’s deals

    June was the first time I used Rite Aid’s Single Check Rebate program. At the beginning of the month, I bought two bottles of Head & Shoulders and one Aquafresh toothpaste. The Head & Shoulders were 2 for $8 with an SCR of $4, and I had a Buy One, Get One Free coupon from the June 1 P&G circular, making them free after SCR. The toothpaste was also free after SCR, and I had a $1 off coupon, so I’ll actually make $1 after the SCR.

    I submitted my information online and was extremely pleased with how easy it was. It took no time at all to register, and after I logged in, all I had to do was enter information from the receipt into three fields and click “submit” a couple of times. I then got a screen that said my check would be sent in two to three weeks. It really couldn’t have been easier, so I was really impressed.

    In fact, between the ease of the SCR program and the good customer service I received last month, I am a Rite Aid convert. I’ve been checking their circulars every week, and this week found three items that are free after SCR:

    While you’re at Rite Aid, keep an eye out for a magazine-size booklet. I can’t remember what it’s called, but it was on the back of the stand where the weekly circulars are. The booklet contains one page of Rite Aid store coupons that might come in handy.

    And for more about this month’s Rite Aid rebates, head over to Hooray for Free-bates.


    1. I’m glad it’s working out for you. I tried Rite Aid a couple of times, had a horrendous experience with the SCR system (lost some $$), and then a lousy customer service experience. They lost my business, which I gladly take to CVS. Less driving for me!

      I really like their online submission system, though. It’s so easy, it just didn’t work out for me.

      I’m glad you’re enjoying the Rite Aid SCRs! I really find that they have been the easiest to claim. I honestly don’t go into that store for anything that’s not a freebate by SCR!

      Here’s another freebate this week that wasn’t posted in the flyer: LypSyl lip balm is on sale for $0.99 – $1.00 SCR #155 = FREE!

      Thanks for the link!

      Thanks for the heads up… I used the SCR for the first time today after seeing your post… only got a few things but I think I got some good deals!

    4. I have always ignored Rite Aid’s sale circulars because I didn’t want excess paperwork or the waste of a stamp. Now that I know I can easily take care of the rebates online, I’m going to start matching up my coupons with what’s on sale there.

      Thanks so much for the info! I’m heading over to get my freebies tomorrow!

      @Justine & Andrea – I’m so glad I could help. Thank you for letting me know, I really appreciate. Have fun playing The Drugstore Game and if you get a chance, give me an update in a week or two – I love hearing about everyone else’s deals too!

      did you ever get those rebates? my experience has been that the rite aid system actually rejects them after about three weeks – sure it’s easy to enter the data – but it is only a false rebate if ultimately they are all rejected in the end. it’s impossible to straighten it out so your discount is just an illusion and rite aid pockets the cash. just my experience. would love to hear if anyone else has actually collected $$ from rite aid with this progam? thanks –

      @anon – Yup, I got my first check just fine and am still in the waiting period for the second one.
