BREAKING: Rite Aid Updates Coupon Policy Not Allowing BOGO Coupon w/ BOGO Sale!

Posted by Ro · May 25, 2011 8:44 pm


Oh no! Today (5/25), Rite Aid has officially updated their coupon policy with 2 major changes:

  • BOGO coupons cannot be used in conjunction with a BOGO Free promotion.
  • Rite Aid may accept up to 4 identical coupons for the same number of qualifying items as long as there is sufficient stock to satisfy other customers within the store manager’s sole discretion.

Birmingham Bargain Mom reports these changes were due to many compaints from customers about the lack of stock after deals appear their weekly ad.

I’m a huge Rite Aid fan, though, I’m really really sad about the BOGO change which will likely effect tons of great deals, especially making it harder to score FREE items when we use to be able to pair the coupon with a BOGO sale. Go here to read or print the full coupon policy and details on couponing at Rite Aid!

Well… that’s the end of my RA shopping. They could have fixed this problem so much easier by allowing the Store Managers to order in stock rather than let the distribution center limit them to their normal quantities.

Since many of the stores in my area already have a 4 of any one item limit on coupons this is not new to me. however I suspect with the publicity that ‘extreme couponing’ is getting you will start seeing this more as stores catch on to what people are doing with coupons. Use the coupons while you still can!

For people who do use coupons if you support stores when they do stuff like that taken a manu. coupon that has no restrictions then that is the actions they will take! If EVERYONE that uses coupons bands from purchasing from RA for 6 to 10 weeks I believe they will revamp and start ordering more stock instead of the NO BOGO which makes more sense! I mean really most people have a CVS and Walgreens give them ALL your business!

I was afraid this would happen once “Extreme Couponing” started airing.

So far my Walgreens or Publix is not participating in this. I actually have a list to go to Rite Aid but will be scratching that off the list. Also, watching extreme couponing I realized that I do not need 60 bottles of hot sauce. LOL.

They could have left the bogo-bogo and just enforced the 4-alike limit! Extreme Couponing did not help. 🙁 I also buy unpaid storage units… been doing it for 30 years! While the crowd used to be 5-10, sometimes up to 20, since the new shows, it went up to 100+! AND, in one instance I know of, 1,400! Sadly, the shows portray those fortune hunters ALWAYS making 1,000’s of $$$ on EVERY unit they buy… it just does NOT happen! ESPECIALLY in todays economy. I’ve finally seen the # of bidders dwindle down to 20-25. I’m sure all those others got STUNG, paying outrageous prices only to find old Tupperware, clothing, outdated computors & children’s school art. NO ONE will take an old soiled matress or couch! What do you do w/ THAT kind of stuff? Who’s gonna MOVE everything out of the unit? You have to place a deposit until the unit is broom-clean. LOL.
Just like storage units, I’m sure everyone who jumped on the coupon bandwagon will soon discover you actually have to WORK at it too… GOD FORBID, “WORK”! Too bad the shows all spoiled it for the rest of us!
