Rite Aid has a program called wellness+ that is connected with your Rite Aid store card. There are a number of benefits that come with this program, including +UP Rewards, Video Value coupons and more.
There is also a points program tied to the wellness+ program and your Rite Aid store card. There are three levels of points: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each level gets you a step closer to the Gold Level or the only level die hard Rite Aid shoppers strive for!
The Gold Level gives you 20% off the entire store for the year! This can be tricky when you are doing a +UP Reward deal that requires you to hit a certain dollar amount before coupons. Your Gold Level status may require you to add an extra item to hit the target dollar amount. Melody does an excellent job of clarifying if the Gold Level status affects these deals. Melody also mentions if the Gold Level status reduces your total out of pocket expense for an item.
You earn wellness+ points for the year you are currently shopping in and the following calendar year. Once January 1, 2014 comes, your points return to zero. Whatever level you reached by December 31, 2013, you will be at that level for the entire year of 2014.
It takes anywhere from six to nine months to earn the Gold Level Status by shopping Rite Aid consistently. The goal is always to spend the least amount out of pocket and this requires smaller, consistent trips. (Having a mother who enjoys using one’s Gold discount but few coupons helps move this process along a bit quicker!)
