If you shop at Rite Aid stores you should check out the Rite Aid Gift of Savings promotion. If you purchase $25 – $50 worth of items you can earn a $5.00 Rite Aid gift certificate, $50.01 – $100.00 a $10.00 gift certificate, and $100.01 or more a $20.00 gift certificate.
In order to participate you’ll need to create an account on the Rite Aid Gift of Savings website. (If you participate in the Rite Aid Single Check Rebates program you can use the same user ID and password and won’t need to register again.) Simply shop in Rite Aid stores from November 25th – December 24th and enter all of your receipt information into the Gift of Savings program website. The promotion claims that all gift certificates will be mailed after the promotional period ends and will expire by April 26, 2008.
From what I can tell those purchases that count towards the Rite Aid Single Check Rebates program also count towards the Gift of Savings program. Here’s an example: last Saturday I purchased two sixteen packs of AA batteries. The batteries cost $10.99 but I had an in store coupon for $2.00 off and I was able to combine that with a manufacturer’s coupon for $1.50. So all in all I paid $7.49 for each pack of batteries for a total of $14.98. I entered my receipts into Rite Aid’s website and waited a few days for the system to update my information. To my surprise, Rite Aid credited my Gift of Savings account with a total of $21.98, (two battery purchases at $10.99 each), clearly disregarding the fact that I used coupons to purchase these two items. In addition, Rite Aid offered an $8.00 rebate on any Duracell battery purchase of $20.00 or more. Since they captured my total purchase price at $21.98 I was also awarded the $8.00 rebate. So when you subtract the rebate from the purchase price you’ll find I paid $6.98 for two 16 packs of AA batteries, plus I am well on my way to earning the Gift of Savings gift certificate. In fact, in order to meet the $25.00 level, and earn a $5.00 gift certificate, I only need to purchase $3.02 more worth of items.
To take advantage of this deal it’s a good idea to combine the power of the Gift of Savings promotion with Rite Aid’s standard Single Check Rebates program. There are a lot of Rite Aid rebates for the month of December. If you clip coupons, shop at Rite Aid, and use the single check rebates program you may be well on your way to earning a gift certificate.
