Rite Aid 101


As of this post I am aware of 7 money saving programs available at Rite Aid:

You do not need a Wellness+ card to participate in the SCR Program.  Rite Aid predominantly uses Single Check Rebate's SCR.  Select products that are eligible for a SCR can be found in the weekly circular and the montly SCR book.  View the SCR online HERE or pick up a book the next time you stop by Rite Aid.

To participate in the SCR program you can to sign up HERE.    

You may only request a SINGLE CHECK per month.  If you purchase SCR eligible items and immediately request a refund check you will be unable to participate in the program for the remainder of the month.  I suggest logging into your account and adding SCR eligible items throughout the month and submitting it on the last day of the month.  Click HERE to start entering you SCR eligible transactions.  Keep in mind... you will need your Rite Aid receipt when submitting and item for a SCR.       
    
To participate in the Wellness+ Program you need a Wellness+ card.  Stop by your local Rite Aid to get a Wellness+ card or enroll online HERE.  When you enroll online you'll get your first coupon for $5 off a $25 purchase.  If you already have your Wellness+ card click HERE to activate your Wellness+ account online to get your $5 off a $25 purchase coupon.      

Earn points everytime you shop. 
Earn 1 point for every dollar you spend on non-prescription purchase
Earn 25 points for every prescription you purchase. 
Certain limitations apply.   

125 points ~ 10% off shopping pass
500 points ~ 10% off all non-prescription purchases everyday & free health screenings
1000 points ~ 20% off all non-prescription purchases everyday
Certain limitations apply.   

You need a Wellness+ to participate in the +UP Rewards Program.  +UP Rewards are coupons that print at the bottom of your Rite Aid cash register receipt when you purchase a qualifying item.  A +UP Reward can be used toward any other item in the store (certain restrictions apply).  Available +UP Reward items can be found in the weekly circular.   

A Wellness+ card is necessary to participate in the B&S Winter Rewards.  This program is available January 23, 2011 thru February 26, 2011.  Get a $20 +UP Reward when you spend $100 or more on specially marked products.  Look for the B&S symbol throughout the weekly circular to determine which items are included in the B&S Winter Rewards.  The $100 spend requirement is calculated before any coupons are deducted.  See the following example that I am taking from this weeks ad:

Hershey's Pieces, Drops or Minis 2/$5
Use 01.30.2010 SS Insert Coupon $2/2
Use +UP Reward Coupons $3 off any Purchase
Final Cost Free

Receive $5 toward $100 B&S spend requirement.  As you can see you don't literally have to spend $100 to receive the $20 +UP Reward.  Click HERE to view answers to commonly asked questions.  

A Wellness+ card is necessary to participate in this program.  The Allergy Rewards Program is in addition to the B&S Winter Rewards Program.  For every $75 you spend on Zyrtec and Benadryl Allergy OTC Products you will receive a $20 Rite Aid certificate electronically.  The spend requirement is tracked through your Wellness+ card and determined before sales tax and less any coupon discounts.  Other exclusions include the purchase of any prescription or prescription co-pays.   Click HERE to register for the Allergy Rewards Program.  This program is available January 01, 2011 thru December 31, 2011.  Limit 3 $20 +UP Allergy Rewards per qualifying household. 

A Wellness+ card is necessary to participate in this program.  The Heart Healthy Program is in addition to the B&S Winter Rewards Program & the Allergy Rewards Program.  Wellness+ members get a $20 +UP Reward with a $50 purchase of select Heart Healthy products or a $10 +UP Reward with a $30 purchase of select Heart Healthy products.  From what I understand once you reach the $30 spend requirment the $10 +UP Reward will print on your receipt and once you reach the $50 spend requirement an additional $20 +UP Reward will print on the bottom of your receipt.  This program is availble January 23, 2011 thru March 26, 2011.    Click HERE to view qualifying items  

Video Values are online video advertisements available for registered Wellness+ members to watch & earn coupons.  Video Values coupons are store coupons.  Store coupons can be stacked with manufacturer coupons and +UP Reward coupons at Rite Aid.  See the following example that I'm taking from this week's ad:

Stack with
Use Rite Aid Video Values Coupon $0.50/1

Rite Aid Coupon Policy


Knowledge is power!  I sometimes assume that if I am knowledgeable about something it means that everybody else is knowledgeable about it as well but, I'm an aries.  Once in awhile I have to slow the mouse down, take a deep breath and reflect on how I've gotten here.  That's what has brought me to this post... I remember that it took alot of research & alot of time to arm myself with the knowledge necessary to be an extreme couponer... the brakes on my little wireless mouse are smokin'. 

Rite Aid is a excellent example of how a retailer should communicate with it's consumers regarding coupon policies.  The Rite Aid coupon policy is short, to the point and easy to understand.  If you are a Rite Aid shopper I suggest that you print and carry a copy when shopping at Rite Aid!  Click HERE to print a (one page) copy of the Rite Aid Coupon Policy.

Linguine in Clam Sauce


Linguine in Clam Sauce

Extra-virgin olive oil

9 cloves garlic, smashed
2 dozen littleneck clams, scrubbed under cold running water
2 Cans Beer (use something that you'd drink)
1 cup white wine (or clam juice)
1/2 cup water
1 large pinch crushed red pepper flakes
1 pound linguine
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley leaves
2 tablespoons chopped oregano leaves
1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, optional, plus shavings for garnish
Extra-virgin olive oil (high quality)

Directions

Put the clams in a LARGE bowl, pour beer overtop of clams and let them soak for 20-30 minutes.  This helps remove any grit that may be inside... Drain and rinse. 

Coat a large saute pan with olive oil and add half the garlic cloves. Bring the pan to a medium- high heat and cook until the garlic becomes golden brown (Be very careful not to burn). When the garlic is golden brown and very aromatic, remove it and discard. Put clams in the pan with the wine and 1/2 cup of water. Cover the pan and bring it to a boil over medium heat. Cover and cook until the clams open, about 10 minutes. Remove the clams from the pan and reduce the cooking liquid (BE CAREFUL... do NOT TO REDUCE TO MUCH... letting the liquid reduce to much could make it VERY SALTY). Let the clams cool slightly,  remove a dozen from their shells ~ mince & and reserve liquid. Discard the shells. Pour the cooking liquid into a measuring cup.

Bring a large pot of unsalted water to a boil over medium heat.

Coat the same saute pan again with olive oil and add the remaining garlic cloves and a large pinch of crushed pepper flakes. Bring the pan to a medium-high heat and cook until the garlic becomes golden brown. When the garlic is golden brown and very aromatic, remove it and discard.  Add the reserved clam cooking liquid to the pan. When adding the reserved clam liquid, be sure to check for sand and grit in the bottom, you may lose the last couple of tablespoons of juice but that is better than sand in your pasta!

While the clams are cooking, drop the linguine into the unsalted boiling water and cook until the pasta is very "al dente" maybe a minute or so less than the box directs.

Add the butter and cooked clams that have been removed from their shells back to the pan. Bring the liquid to a boil and toss in the cooked pasta and the herbs. Cook the pasta together with the sauce until the sauce clings to the pasta. Turn off the heat and toss in the grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, if using, and finish with a drizzle of finishing oil. Toss or stir vigorously to combine.

Divide the pasta into serving dishes and garnish with the clams that are still in their shells... add shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano ONLY AFTER TASTING, if desired.

Add chopped onions to bacon drippings and sautee until soft. Reserve bacon drippings. Add bacon, onions & cheddar cheese to stuffing mixture.

Seasone both sides of the chops with marjoram, salt & pepper. Divide & stuff the stuffing mixture evenly among the 4 Pork Chops. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Reheat the bacon drippings over medium heat. Sear pork chops on both sides (careful not to lose stuffing) 1-2 minutes.

I use a wire rack over my cookie sheet to bake the pork chops...My little trick to prevent the stuffing from burning to the pan. WORKS LIKE A CHARM EVERY TIME ;) ~ Cover with Foil and bake on 350 for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 15 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes before serving...

Oh, I cheat with the gravy... I either buy a packet of pork gravy and prepare according to package directions or use canned and heat in the microwave.

Chicken with Mustard Mascarpone Marsala Sauce


Chicken with Mustard Mascarpone Marsala Sauce

1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, each breast cut crosswise into 3 pieces

Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
5 tablespoons butter, divided
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 pound cremini mushrooms, sliced
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 cup dry Marsala wine
1 cup (8 ounces) mascarpone cheese
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves, plus whole sprigs, for garnish
12 ounces dried fettuccine

Directions

Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over high heat. Add the chicken and cook just until brown, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a plate and cool slightly.

While the chicken cools, melt 2 tablespoons of butter to the same skillet over medium-high heat, then add the onion and saute until tender, about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and garlic and saute until the mushrooms are tender and the juices evaporate, about 12 minutes. Add the wine and simmer until it is reduced by half, about 4 minutes. Stir in the mascarpone and mustard. Cut the chicken breasts crosswise into 1/3-inch-thick slices. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the skillet. Simmer, uncovered, over medium-low heat until the chicken is just cooked through and the sauce thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Stir in the chopped parsley. Season the sauce, to taste, with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the fettuccine and cook until al dente, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Drain. Toss the fettuccine with 3 tablespoons of butter and season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Swirl the fettuccine onto serving plates. Spoon the chicken mixture over top. Garnish with parsley sprigs and serve.

Save money:
Substitute the Marsala Wine... use Chicken Broth
Substitute the Mascarpone... use Cream Cheese
Substitute the Cremini Mushrooms... use Button Mushrooms
