    • Valerie

      for some reason, I am having a difficult time getting the $5 off of $25 coupon…any suggestions? when I link…nothing comes up on the site except a small shape in the left hand corner?

    • Jenny

      Do you have Adobe reader downloaded on your computer? It should open up the pdf inside your web browser… Try another browser if you have one. If that doesn’t work let me know and I can save the file and email it to you.

    • ldh

      Thanks for the scenario deal! I plan to use a variation of it. Thanks!

    • Tiffany

      Last night I tried to use the $5 off $25 but it would not scan. They said they cannot accept it if it won’t scan. Is anyone else having this problem?

    • rachel

      do you think i should wait to buy the swiffer refills until they go on sale or will the price stay the same all month?

    • Crystal

      My rite aid doesn’t accept internet printed coupons, any body else runnning into that problem?

    • Jenny

      The swiffer products are on sale this week. Their regular price is usually around $3.50 -$4.

      Crystal – Rite Aid corporate recently changed their internet printable policy so check with your store or call corporate in the store to get the management to see that it is okay.

    • Crystal

      Thank you Jenny!!!! I will look into that!!!

    • Allie

      Looks like coupons.com just reloaded coupons! I had just printed and a lot said “print limit reached” and now I can print

    • Tried to use the 1.00 off coupon for the toothbrush. Did not scan at the store. Anybody else having trouble?

    • Suzanne

      I love your site! Thanks for helping me to save money. Quick question:

      Can I use a Rite Aid coupon and a manufacturer’s coupon (from the newspaper), on the same item?

      • Jenny


        Yes you can “stack” a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon together. You will always know if it is a store coupon for Rite Aid if the bar code starts with RA.

    • holly

      My toothbrush coupon did not scan and neither did the vitamin water. They said it was because they were on sale for 99 cents and the coupon is for $1. Bummer. I know they could still take it- but won’t.

      Did they let you use it anyway Kara? Also, sometimes the barcode is so long on rite-aid coupons that they have to enter it in by hand.

    • jamie

      Will the $1.00 off Huggies Bath and Body coupon work at Rite-Aid as well? If so, it’ll be a moneymaker for those 40-packs with the SCR.

    • tonya

      the toothbrush coupon wouldn’t scan for me either and the scrubbing bubbles automatic shower cleaner kit that you get the $3 rebate for actually rang up for $24.99 not $12.99. my plan was shot after that. bummer.

    • toni

      Hi! My toothbrush coupon scanned no problem, the bummer, even though the scrubbing bubbles shower cleaner was on sale, last week they posted a 5 dollar coupon limit by the register so I couldn’t use the 7 dollar coupon. :o(

    • Quen

      The toothbrush coupon scanned for me! There were $1 peelies on the Kotex pads good on any Kotex product. This made the Kotex pantiliners free with .01 overage.

    • Amy

      Does anyone else have problems with using a $5 off $25 coupon AND other coupons? The manager at my Rite Aid said the total had to be $25 AFTER all other coupons and she wouldn’t take my $5 printable until I added something to the total. Anyone else? Or does yours work if you give the $5off$25 coupon first and then the rest of the coupons? She insisted that it won’t scan.

    • Lori

      Yes always give them the $5 off $25 first because your subtotal must be $25. (it’s the same way at CVS) If I evr forget to had it first I just make them rering everything. But my Rite Aid told me they would just do an adjust and gave me the cash for the coupon after I paid. hope that helps :)

    • Nancy

      I did the Rx transfer and got $100 in gift cards (you get a $25 gift card for each prescription–up to 4 per household). So then I tried to buy rebate items with coupons using my gift cards, but when I got to the register they said that their HQ told them they could no longer take internet (printable) coupons! I even asked the mgr and he told me that HQ sent out an email telling all the stores not to take printables. I am new to this so I did not want to argue with them but I put those items back. The Rx thing worked great, but I don’t think I will stay at Rite Aid after I spend these gift cards because from my experience as well as what I am reading on the comments here, they seem rather difficult regarding coupons. But the $100 is certainly worth it! How can you say no to that!?!

    • Amy

      This website has swiffer coupons. Can I use them and get the rebate from the manufacturer? Does the $10 or $20 of items purchase mean before or after coupons? Thanks for your help!

    • Amy
    • crystal

      Is the Sundown Buy 1, Get 2 Free deal in this week’s ad? Where did you see that? It wasn’t in our print ad and when I went into the store there was no sign saying “B1G2.” I didn’t ask the cashier guess I could have.

      • Jenny

        Crystal it was on the back page of our ad. It might have been a South Carolina addition, but normally they are the same… The add had a half page font and it was on the back of the half page cover.

    • tonya

      good morning everyone!,

      the first rite aid i went to had the scrubbing bubbles automatic cleaner for $24.99, so i then went to another one and it was $17.99. i didn’t realize the price of items could differ from store to store. where are you guys getting it for $12.99?

      i was also told by the “store manager” they could not accept “iternet printable coupons”…including the $5 off $25. it’s ironic that publix across the street will acept the $5 off $25. i have personally been treated wonderful by cvs and look forward to shopping there weekly.

    • holly

      Jenny, is the Famotidine Acid Reducer (Rite aid brand) a good price this week at BOGO?
      It’s 19.99 for a pack of 180- 10mg pills. So, using the $5 off coupon (and buying a few other things) it would cost $15 for 2 packs.
      Some of the Pepcid packs are 20mg per pill. So, I’m not sure if you can get this at a better price?

      Thanks! Does anyone else know if this isn’t something you buy?

    • Adele

      My Rite Aid had no problem taking the $1 for the toothbrush, or $5 off of $25 and I was able to find a B1G1F pack of the 8 hour tylenol(so 100 pills). Pre-coupon total was $28.44 I had $10.49 OOP (I used a gift card from transferring a script) and $6 in rebates coming back.

    • Tammy

      The Suave (certain ones) are on sale this week for .99. I purchased both shampoo and conditioner and used the 3/29 RP coupon. The coupon states $1/2, but the actual coupon is coded as “purchase 1.” So ended up getting these for FREE + .02 over.

    • driving lady

      rite aid on white horse and anderson road would not take the 5 off 25 or the toothbrush they have funny codes on them.

    • Melissa

      I did as Jenny suggested and gave the $5/$25 coupon first, then the rest of my coupons. It worked about half the time.

      I felt the deal was unfair, though, because RiteAid gets reimbursed for the manuf. coupons, so it should be the same as if I’m spending cash.
      I emailed RiteAid Corporate and explained that if I spend $2.00 or a $2.00 coupon, it’s the same thing, Rite Aid gets $2.00, and it’s wrong for them to make coupon-using customers spend more than a cash-paying customer to be able to use the RiteAid coupon.

      I didn’t receive an answer back, but the next time I went to the RiteAid where I had had trouble before, the cashier who was also a store manager did take my $5/$25 off coupon first, and she knew I had other coupons I was fixing to use. She stood there a couple seconds, looking at my coupon envelope, like she was waiting for me to pull out some more coupons, and I did, but then she went ahead and put in the $5/$25 coupon like she just remembered she was supposed to or something.

      I don’t know if it was just a fluke thing, or if my email worked.
      I say if anyone’s RiteAid says they can’t use the coupon before other coupons to write Corporate and complain, because it is wrong.

    • Melissa

      Tammy, how can you tell if a coupon is coded purchase 1? Or can you not until it rings up?

    • Amy

      I emailed Rite Aid corporate also and the response was….

      I sincerely apologize for any misinformation provided you by our associates, but please know that you may use your coupon(s) without any unusual restrictions. Thank you for choosing Rite Aid and let me know what we can do to make your shopping experience better.

      I wrote him back and told him that didn’t exactly answer my question. LOL I wanted the policy regarding the $5/$25 in writing so i could bring it to the manager at my store.

    • Sheila

      My toothbrush coupon worked fine but, they were out of the aquafresh sensitive toothpaste but right beside it the aquafresh tarter control whitening triple protection regular price 2.59 actually rang up .64¢ and I had my .75¢ off coupons.
      So I got 1 toothbrush, 2 tubes aquafresh, 1 mentos gum for .37¢
      I have found that my rite-aid shopping goes better if i have the same amout of products that I have coupons like walgreens they seem to get less confused that way.

    • today was a good day at rite aid wish i could print more of their coupons but have to have prescrition filled to get the 50$ coupons.
      2) rite aid batteries
      2)ge bulbs
      1) soft soap
      1) extreme tooth brush
      make sure you use your rite aid card it will take some off about 10%
      i used 4.00 one dollar off coupons,2.00 rite aid battery coupons the soft soap refillable coupon for a dollar off works on the regular soft soap.total with coupons 3.72 plus i get a rebate for the light bulbs 2.00,so really only spent 1.72 not bad!!!!!!!
