I LOVE RITEAID! Here's my trip!

So last night, Shannan and I hit RiteAid knowing our Dixie plates had just come on the truck. This is when pre-ordering is soooooo handy. Between Shannan and I, we have 5 (almost 6) kids and our families eat dinner together once a week. I also homeschool, so we are home everyday for lunch. Paper plates play a HUGE roll in our house.

  1. We did order an extra case of Dixie paper plates just because we knew they would be a hot item. So if you are in Spokane, as of last night, Wandermere Riteaid had some extra. If you haven't been able to find any, check there!

  2. Just a little newbie question for you...How does the Up rewards work? And you have VV and SCR what do those represent?

  3. Not a stupid question. Glad you asked! A +up is a reward that prints at the end of your receipt. It is good on your next purchase and usually has about 2 weeks to a month before it expires. What I do is use the amount of +ups to pay for my items that equal what I will get back. Example: When I bought the cleaning products knowing I would get $3 in +ups back, I used $3 in +up towards those items. Using rewards to get rewards equals less out of your pocket.

    VV stands for Video Value Coupons. You get these by setting up an account through RiteAid. Watch short videos and earn coupons that can be stacked with in-store coupons and manufactured coupons (this is why we heart RiteAid).

    A SCR stands for Single Check Rebate. These are checks you receive in the mail after purchasing items that give you the SCR as a reward. You register your receipt on the RiteAid website and submit for your check. You then can cash them or use them on your next trip. Mine was from Blink Tears I purchased back in December.

    Here's RiteAid's site for the VVs:

    Also, here's the site for registering your receipts on products for SCRs:

    Both +ups and SCR items will be marked in their ads and we will mark them in our Ad Match-ups!

    I hope this was helpful!!!
