wellness ups

Did you look at the Rite Aid ad this week and think something was missing.  You are not wrong.   The +UP Rewards are gone.   Rite Aid has discontinued the program.  This makes me very sad since Rite Aid is the closest drug store to me and the one I’ve been doing the most shopping at.

Without the +UP Rewards the deals this week some what stink, and we won’t have anything to replace them for a whole month.

Starting in May Rite Aid will be starting a new program.  It’s called wellness+Plenti.

Here’s a comparison of +UP to the new Plenti program



Wellness Plus Program card New cards showing Plenti will be issued in early May.  You will need to re-enroll even if you are currently a Wellness member.
Rewards only used at Rite Aid Rewards can be used at participating retailers including Rite Aid plus Macy’s, Exxon Mobil, AT&T, Nationwide and more
$1 +UP Reward Equals 100 Plenti Points
Rewards available at 6 am the next day This rule stays the same.
Any amount of rewards can be used Only customers with at least 200 Plenti Points in their account will be able to use them .  You will be prompted at check-out if you would like to use them.  You can choose how many points you will like to use.
Expire in 2 weeks Points are good for at least two years

So what are your thoughts on this new program.  For me, with the exception of Macy’s I don’t have any of the other retailers currently participating near me so it really doesn’t matter.

There are a couple points that I do like.  The expiration date and the fact that you can choose how many points you use in a transaction.  The second item should make transactions easier to plan.

It will be interesting to see how the points work come May.  I can tell you I won’t be much shopping at Rite Aid during April.  Without rewards, shopping at drugstores doesn’t make much sense.

RIte Aid considers this an enhancement to the program, but I have a feeling they will be loosing quite a bit of money this month.  Not quite sure why they are delaying it a whole month.

What are your thought on this new program?

In this week’s Giant Eagle ad there are two Bonus Fuel Perk deals.  Many of the items were listed as $1 off or a percentage savings.  I don’t know about you, but this sort of drives me nuts because I can’t plan out the best deal.

So I have updated prices for you.  I will give one word of warning.  My store didn’t have new tags up on the 25 cents Bonus Fuel Perk deals so I took the regular prices and deducted a dollar.  If you see different prices, please let me know.

The prices are marked in blue.  I hope they help you plan your trip.
