UP+ Rewards are great and all, but I want some cash money!!

As I have shown you this week, you can "make" some pretty good "money" at Rite Aid using their UP+ Rewards program.  The one downfall with the UP+ Rewards is that they are not cash that you can use wherever, they need to be used at Rite Aid.  I am usually okay with this, but if the opportunity presents itself to change those UP+ Rewards into cash money, I am all over that!  The way you do this is with Rite Aid's Single Check Rebate Program.

Rite Aid offers a selection of items that you can get a rebate on each month.  You purchase these items in store, enter your receipt information on their website, request your check and then then send you a CHECK that you can cash for money!

Occasionally they will have some of the items on sale for the same price as the rebate, so even without using coupons, you could get these items for free after rebate!  BUT if you have a coupon for the item you are actually going to MAKE the amount of money the coupon is for after rebate.  BUT it gets even better!  If you have UP+ Rewards in the amount of the item (and adding a coupon to this would make it even BETTER!), you would get that item for FREE in the store, then submit for the single check rebate and get cash money for the entire item, basically turning your UP+ Rewards into cash!!!

Here is an example of what you can do THIS WEEK to turn your UP+ Rewards into cash via Single Check Rebate:

Buy AMO Complete Mulit-Purpose Solution on sale for $7.99
Use the $1/1 from the 1/2 SS
= $6.99

Buy Neuragen Gel on sale for $19.99
Use the $5/1 coupon here
= $14.99

Get a cheap candy (like the Sweethearts Candy) $0.33

Pay $22.31
Use $22 in UP+ Rewards
TOTAL OOP (before tax) $0.31

Submit for $7.99 Single Check Rebate
Submit for $19.99 Single Check Rebate


So, even if you didn't have UP+ Rewards, you are still "making" $6!!

  1. I've never tried Rite Aid. I usually go with CVS. My Rite Aid never seems to have the sale stuff and their signs are always wrong. Maybe I'll give them a try sometime this year.
