Recently Rite Aid changed their UP+ Rewards program, and now everyone’s UP+ Rewards will be loaded directly onto your Wellness card unless you opt out of this feature. As soon as we heard about this upcoming change we were apprehensive. Sure, change is always tricky, but we really liked the idea of having the UP+ Rewards print on the bottom of the receipt. We decided to give it a try and after our first transaction decided we wanted to opt out.
When we checked out and reviewed that initial receipt we did see that a verification printed on the receipt showing what was loaded to the card. We returned the next day to make another purchase and saw that the loaded UP+ Rewards automatically come off your order total. This made us uneasy because we want to be able to use our Rewards when we want, on the transactions we want. You do not have this feature with the loaded Rewards. We wanted to opt out and it was so easy!
Next time you are at Rite Aid, stop by the cashier and tell her you wish to opt out. The cashier will scan your Wellness Card and make some adjustment at the register that will opt you out and from that point on your UP+ Rewards will print out on your receipt, as before.
You can also call Rite Aid customer service to opt out.
Reminder: The other major change is that you must wait until 6:00am the following morning to use your UP+ Rewards.
