    • Misty

      Pretty sure the Target coupon for $1.00 off Mitchum Deodorant will work for RiteAid since it’s a Man. coupon. You can find the at the same location as the $5.00 off 4 boxes of Kellogg cereal.

    • christa

      GE bulbs would be Free with .50 profit or $1 each only if have to buy 2 packs, correct?

      • The Mentalist

        Even if you just buy 1, it would be .50 profit after using $1 coupon on a $2.50 pack, and of course after $2 rebate.

        • hilary

          the rebate is wyb 2. so it would be $5 total, minus $2 rebate and one or two $1 off qs. so, $0.50 each is you have two $1/1 or $1 each if you have the $1/2

    • christa

      If buying Secret Deod, it will be $ 3 / $ 1.50 each after rebate. (have to buy 2 to get $1 rebate)

      • Elizabeth

        There is also a buy 2 get 1 free Secret coupon, so you can get 50 cents off of each of the 2 you buy, then get a 3rd for free. I got 3 secrets for $2.

    • The Mentalist

      The target/e-centive coupon website needed to install a software on my pc for printing coupons, and the coupon for Kellogs I had selected disappeared after it asked me to close all browsers. Now, it doe snot appear on the list. How can I get the Kellog $5 coupon? Thanks

      • Susan

        Yuk! Me too!

    • BamaFan

      Has anyone had trouble cashing their rebate check at Rideaid? I tried to use my $27 SCR for an $11 purchase – The clerk, then the store manager said they could not give cash back. Then I tried to get them to just cash the SCR but they said they could not do that either – something about a new e-check system. I ended up buying a Riteaid gift card equal to my rebate and using it to pay. What a pain.

      • MonaLisa

        I always thought you had to use the amount or lose it. I also heard they usually wont let you use it to purchase a gift card. I would love it if they would let me get a gift card to use later so I would not have to worry about the expiration dates on the rebate checks. Where did you go?? I should go there. :)

        • BamaFan

          Centerpoint AL – let me buy a “Merchandise Return” card (not really a gift card but it accomplishes the same purpose) — but this is after we discussed the matter for about 10 minutes — I think I wore them down! I have cashed my rebate check there and at other Riteaid stores many time. It seems odd when a store will not even cash their own checks.

      • The rebate check is an actual check. Take it to the bank and deposit or cash it.

        • BamaFan

          My bank will not cash it because it says “Use at Riteaid for any purchase” I have tried 3 times to get them to cash it and they refuse! Riteaid had always cashed it before…

          • hilary

            so weird! wachovia cashes them with no problem. i didn’t think we had an option — thought it was bank or nothin! :)

          • Barb

            I deposit it into my credit union account every month. It never, ever occurred to me to take it to the store and try and use it there.

          • If it were me, I would have the branch manager call Rite Aid while I was listening to ask them if it is a check. Because it is. It is payable to you and can be endorsed on the back. Check. I deposit mine every month.

          • ZJ

            How big is your bank? Bank of America accepts my rebate check with no problem.

      • MarySC

        I always deposit mine into my bank account. (Not the Fall Savings certificate… that is totally different than the monthly rebate postcards.)

      • ts

        I always go to the bank with my SCR. Normally it is deposited in my bank account.

      • According to our local mgr, the purchase has to match the check amount. I was able to deposit mine at the bank. According to an email I have from RA CSR, it is a REAL check.

        • Sarah

          Yep, I emailed Rite Aid too and they said it can be taken to the bank since it is a check.

    • Kristen

      Does anyone know Rite Aid’s return policy? I bought an item from them and I used a coupon for the full purchase price, I only paid tax. I saw a better deal somewhere else so I decided to return it, I had forgotten that I used a coupon until I pulled the receipt out. The assistant manager tried to give me what I paid in tax back and I said no thanks because I’d be giving them the product back and they would get the money from the manufacturer also. I was thinking about trying to return it without the receipt for store credit. Does anyone know if Rite Aid takes stuff back without a receipt?


      • sory to hear that…my RA always give me the full value back evenif i use coupons

        • tlrob1266

          isnt that fraud to get more back than u paid

    • sharon

      Does anyone know about the 6.5′ prelit tree they have for 40$ I have wanted a prelit tree, but most are almost 100$. Is this a good deal or a cheap tree? Tried to google for reviews, but got nothing. I’m just assuming with a receipt that I woun’t have any issues with returning if it’s cheap.

      • Jenn

        That’s not a bad deal though if you have a Big Lots, I’d check them first. I got a 6′ for $30.

    • Katie

      My ad is different from the one you have posted. I don’t have the in ad coupon for the M5 razor or the pop up tape on sale. Oh well.

    • I am so aggrivated! Our Rite Aid doesn’t have that whole SCR page! I was looking forward to those deals! No light bulbs, tape or any of the good ones! Bummer. At least it has the prescription transfer coupons in it….about the only good thing in the whole ad.

      • Annamarie

        The ad I get from the Charlotte Observer has been different from our local ad many times but they will honor the prices in it at my store.

    • Julie

      I too was bummed when my store in Greenwood did not have the tape or lightbulbs on sale :(

    • Rebekah

      i Thought the Old Spice gift set with the SRC plus using the $1 off Q in the 11/29 PG Qs is a good deal. I might try to go for the tape dispenser. You can use both Qs listed right because you have to buy 2 but I’m not to sure I understand the $3.29. Is that how much you get back? Thanks for advice/help.

    • Crystal

      I had two coupons for 50 cents off Secret. I then had a B2G1F coupon for Secret. I got three Secrets for a total of $2 (after the SRC). All of the coupons came from the PG supplements in the Sunday papers. Averaged out to be around 68 cents a deo.

    • Rebekah

      The tape dispenser Q says “only 1 coupon per purchase” this mean you can do 2 Qs in 1 purchase as long as you are purchase 2 dispensers correct?

      • Crystal


    • martha

      I can’t find the $5 off $25..

      • I can’t find a new Rite Aid coupon either. I’ve tried multiple zip codes. Have you been able to find one?

        • Susanne

          I can’t find one from that link either. However, I did find one at:
          and then I clicked on the rite-aid icon for the $5 off $25 and then printed the coupon.

          • Susanne, you ROCK!!! Thank you so much! I added this site to my favorites. Have a great weekend!

      • Damien

        You can find the $5 off $25 coupon in one of Jenny’s earlier Rite-Aid posts (11/15-11/21)… it expires Dec 19th though, so hurry if u plan to use it.

    • Jamey

      Nivea hand cream tins are 99 cents, and they qualify for the Nivea body $1.00 rebate #117 (makes them FREE!) limit one. Great filler item. I found it in the makeup aisle in a plastic jar near the floor.

    • Meme

      I had two items that did not ring up at the sale price. One was Preparation H and the others were the tape dispensers. The store manager looked a little upset that some stores have sales when others don’t. The Preparation H was $7.99 each and the tape dispensers were $3.29 each. I don’t think the Preparation H had an SCR either. I am going to set these items aside and if the Rite Aid rebates don’t list the SCR’s I will return them even if I lose the coupon value.

      Love this site and love your name (my mother was named Jenny). Meme

    • Meme

      I saw another post above that said there was no “in ad” coupon for M5 razors. Same at my Rite Aid. The one on sale with SCR was the Gillette Fusion. There was an in ad coupon and the store had the signs up for the SCR. Hope this helps if your coupons haven’t expired for this item.

    • ts

      My printable pop up tape coupons did not work. There was one number on the barcode that was different, so when she scanned it, it said there was no matching item even though the item was identical to the coupon. She said she couldn’t force it since the system wouldn’t take it.

      • Sharon

        Same thing happen to me but, she forced it. However, my tape wasn’t on sale so, I paid $1.79 after rebates. NOT GOOD. Can I still return it? I don’t need the tape since I received such great FREE tape from publix.

    • Jennifer

      FYI: The store on 1900 Duluth Highway
      Lawrenceville, GA will not take computer print out coupons if she can’t scan them. I told the cashier she would be losing a lot of customers and she didn’t care. I went to another location and they took every one of them even if they had to type them in.

    • ZJ

      Does anyone know if you can do the Holiday Gift of Savings deal more than once?

      • You couldn’t do the fall gift of savings more than once so I wouldn’t think so. Meaning, anything over $100 spent still gets you just the $20. You could enter the excess receipts under a nice relative that would give you the certificate when it arrives I guess :)

    • Martha

      the rite aid coupon is gone? or it is only for certain zip codes?

      • Amy

        Can’t find it either! Help!

    • Damien Barber

      Just went to rite-aid and spent $0 after using my fall gift of savings and will be getting $13.29 back… got the Phillips remote, scotch tape (x2), Gillette Body Wash, Gillette Deodorant, bottle of water and a couple bags of candy. The candy and water were added after I realized that I was at $19.52 and even after adding the water, I still lacked $1.93 because of tax getting lowered or something… it was my weirdest coupon transaction ever!

      I was a little sad that the Scotch Tape was $3.29 each here and the light bulbs were $5.29 each (so I did not get the bulbs).

      All in all, a good trip to Rite-Aid.

    • Damien Barber

      Wondering if this is a deal worth getting for diapers:

      $19.99 (box) x 3
      -20% off entire order
      -$5 off $20 coupon
      -$2 store coupon (x3)
      -$3 manu coupon (x2)
      -$2 manu coupon (x1)

      If my math is correct, this works out to about $29 for 3 boxes (about 288 diapers depending on how many come in a box). Probably not the best deal I have gotten on diapers, but it seems decent. I have been itching to use this 20% off coupon (which expires at the end of the month) to buy a bunch of diapers… am I likely to see a better diaper deal by the end of the month?

      Oh and I have more coupons for huggies/ pampers but they are all $1-$1.50.

      • Damien Barber

        P.S. Does ne1 know if the 20% off order coupon can be combined with a $5 off order coupon?

      • Sue

        Are you planning to use 6 manufacturer’s coupons? How can you do that with just 3 item?

        • Angel in Charleston

          She is using 3 manufacturer’s coupons … The others are store Qs.

      • ZJ

        Is $19.99 the reg price or sale price? I think the 20% only applies to items that are not on sale. I was able to use the $5 off $25 and the 20% off coupon about a month ago b/c my 20% off coupon only applied to 2 out of 10+ items that I bought that day.

        • Damien Barber

          I don’t know, I do not see the diapers listed in our local flyer, but that seems to be cheaper than they normally are. I did not see until I read the fine print recently that the 20% coupon cannot be used on sale items… it would make me sad if I cannot use this coupon on these diapers because they are no sale… maybe I should calculate whether it would be cheaper to buy them when not on sale using the 20% off coupon.

          Anyone know if they scan the coupon but do not complete the order if I can still use my coupon at a later day? Basically if they scan it and it does not work for these items because they are on sale can I just have them void the order and come back later and use the 20% off coupon?

    • Natalie

      Can anyone tell me if I can use a Rite Aid Gift Card to purchase a retailer gift card like iTunes or a restaurant. I assume no, but has anyone out there tried? I have $50 in Rite aid cards that I’ll use eventually, but would love to buy another gift card for a gift. Thanks.

    • Rebekah

      Jenny or someone…

      I know I have several posts on here…but I just wanna be like everyone else & save:)

      I have a question…
      next week…the SRC 116 for the nivea lip care product would go really well with the B1G1 free Q + getting the $2SRC + using the B3G Nivea lotion free…

      Here is the question: Is it “legal” to claim SRC 117 the Neva Body cream/lotion even though I technically didn’t purchase this (using the Q I got it free)? I feel right now that if I did this transaction I would be getting a $1 for the wrong reason ya know?
      Thanks for advice/support.

      • Rebecca

        Yep. You can, and it’s totally “legal”. The SCR thing is totally separate from your purchase. You enter your receipts, acknowledging that they are your transactions, their system searches to see if you bought it, and you qualify automatically. You don’t have to proactively “claim” anything (like clicking a box requesting a specific rebate or anything). I know, I know, I’m feeling the guilt today, too. I just filled out a rebate form for a bayer contour meter that I got for free after Q. I am not sure what amount to expect back since I only paid a little over $4 out of pocket for the entire transaction (I bought batteries that day, too). At best, I’ll get $29.99 – purchase price – or maybe I’ll get $4 and change that I paid that day, or maybe I won’t get anything (and will have wasted my time and a stamp). It’s a game, really. If it makes you feel bad, don’t do it. If you get excited about getting paid to take stuff home, go for it! There are lots of schools of thought on that one! LOL!

        • Rebekah


        • Meme

          Would you please share where to find the rebate on the Contour glucose meter? This is the first replacement I have purchased in four years and my husband uses mine occasionally when he feels his sugar is low or high. So I have “readings” all over the place recorded on mine. I would like to take the rebate and purchase another one for him. Meme

          • Rebekah

            I actaully have that ” up to $30″ meter Q if you would like it since you &/or your spouse actively use one. I did not use this Q because I have no need for a glucose meter & have been blessed because I believe it runs in my family. I would be happy to mail it to you..please email me at darkenmind1326@yahoo.com.

    • Jennifer

      Just so you know RiteAid has Cottenelle toilet paper 24pack double rolls on sale for $10.99. The regular price is $19.99. I had a $3.00 coupon from Kroger which they took and got 24 double rolls for $7.99. Great deal if you ask me.
      I just started this extreme coupon shopping, so this is pretty exciting. I’ve generally bought store brand items unless I had a coupon for something else but never knew about SouthernSavers until this week.
      Thanks for the info.

    • Meme

      I have a question about the Holiday Gift of Savings being different from the rebate check. Do you have to use the Gift of Savings on future purchases at Rite Aid?

      Also, should I wait until the expiration date of the offer to apply for the Gift of Savings if I am already passed the $100 mark.

      I also want to know if I should wait to apply for the rebate check until the end of the month? It just happened last time that I made my first purchases at Rite Aid just before the deadline. Now I don’t know what to do with my recent purchases. Thanks for help.

      • Meme

        Okay, I think I found my own answers. I received an email stating they had already sent out my $20 gift of savings certificate from Rite Aid.

        I also found the information on their site saying I could only receive one rebate check per month. So now I know to wait until the end of the time period and get a check for all the rebates at one time.

    • Jennifer

      I went to Rite Aid for the first time using these ideas…I had printed the $5 off coupon from e-centives, but since it had the Target logo on it, they would not take it. Is this right or should I have pushed for it? Thank you!

    • Jennifer

      I should have mentioned it was for the buy four get $5 off Kellogg’s cereal. Once they refused my coupon, I didn’t want to buy four boxes of cereal, but just bought them anyway…

    • just me


      I didn’t see this posted in the comments. This is a $3 mail in rebate in case you want to try to Woolite cloths.
