Starting September 2nd, there will be a few changes to the Rite Aid +UP Rewards that you may want to be ready for. They are activating a “Load2Card” feature for +UP rewards (they’ve had Load2Car coupons for a while, but this will actually affect your rewards).
Here is the breakdown of changes to come:
- Earned +UP Rewards will be stored on your Wellness + Card and no longer print on your receipt.
- +Up Rewards can’t be redeemed the day you earn them. They can be redeemed starting at 6 a.m. the next day. It will still expire in 14 days.
- Manage your +Up Rewards online by signing in to your Wellness+ Account.
- Text “REWARD” to “RATEXT” to get a text each week with the number and value of the +Up Rewards you currently have available.
You can choose to opt out of the Load2Card feature if you prefer having rewards on paper. However you still won’t be able to use rewards the same day they are earned.
While I am not a fan of limiting the use of rewards to the next day (it will probably have a large impact on redemption rates since most of us aren’t in Rite Aid every week), I am happy that they are at least not changing the program as a whole. You will still earn rewards the same way, and they still act as cash when redeemed – meaning that you can still use store and manufacturer coupons with them.

Heads up: there are changes coming to Walgreens too, I’ll share those on Monday…
