• Rite Aid Black Friday: 6 Tips to Saving Big!


    Rite Aid Black Friday Shopping Tips

    Rite Aid, like other drugstores, offers some incredible coupon deals on Black Friday. It’s a great opportunity to stock up on needed household items without spending much money out of pocket. These Rite Aid Black Friday shopping tips will help you cash in on their fantastic deals in order to get tons of freebies and super cheap items.

    1. Understanding Couponing at Rite Aid

    So, in order to Black Friday shop at Rite Aid you really need to understand Rite Aid couponing. This is because pretty much all the deals worth grabbing will be coupon deals. This isn’t your typical “cheap TVs and hot deals on toys” Black Friday shopping. It is, however, a fantastic opportunity to do a big couponing trip for FREE or extremely cheap items such as diapers, personal care, food, household items and more. You can learn how to coupon at Rite Aid here.

    2. Plan Your Trip

    In order to effectively coupon shop, you have to know what the deals are so you can have all of your coupons organized and ready to go. The Rite Aid Black Friday ad usually leaks at least a few weeks early, giving you plenty of time to do this. (UPDATE: For 2016, the ad can be viewed here and you can see previews for all the Black Friday Freebies here.)

    3. Shop Early… or Late

    Rite Aid opens up for Black Friday as early as 8 am on Thanksgiving day (as of 2015). They’ve also started opening early on Black Friday (7 am) at stores that aren’t 24 hour locations. This timing gives you plenty of flexibility to still get to the big retail stores to do “real” Black Friday shopping on Thanksgiving evening. You can shop Rite Aid ahead of time (Thanksgiving morning) or after the fact (Black Friday morning).

    Some Rite Aid store also early activates the evening before the sale. This will vary by location. You can find out your store has early activated by price checking a known sale item.

    4. Using Discounted Gift Cards


    You can buy discounted gift cards on places like Raise to save even more money. For example, at the time of this writing, I spotted Rite Aid gift cards listed at $48.20 for a $54.97 gift card. That’s 12% in savings by buying this card and using it for your purchases at Rite Aid.  Plus you can save between $5-$15 on your first purchase as a new customer (depending on which promotion is currently running).

    I don’t recommend getting raise gift cards to give as gifts. Instead, I recommend getting them for yourself to use as payment method for stores you know you shop at. Raise has a 100 day guarantee on all gift cards purchased. So make sure to use the gift card within 3 months.

    5. Look for Gift Card Deals

    99% of the Rite Aid Black Friday deals with be couponing deals for items like baby stuff, health and beauty aids, etc. However, Rite Aid can be an especially great store to stock up on gift cards for other retailers at, as well. For instance, in 2015 Rite Aid offered $100 Old Navy gift cards for just $75 after all the discounts. Even if you won’t give the gift cards as gifts, you can buy them early on Thanksgiving morning and then use them for your own Black Friday shopping at the stores they are for. It’s another way to stack the savings!

    6. Shop BOGOs for Stocking Stuffers

    The last helpful tip for Black Friday shopping at Rite Aid that I have for you is to check out the BOGOs. In 2015, Rite Aid had Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offers for everything from fragrance gift sets to small chocolates and other products. Select items were even Buy 1 Get 2 FREE! These types of goodies are fantastic for stuffing stockings and getting other small gifts for holiday parties, etc. Make sure you pay careful attention to these; you don’t want to miss them!
