My Rite Aid Experience - Load 2 Card
Greetings Fellow Coupons Are True Blessings' Fans,
I wanted to share with you my Rite Aid experience. I went to Rite Aid rather nervous due to the Load 2 Card program. My experience went okay. I was able to "Opt-Out" of Load 2 Card program at the register and didn't have any problems.
Why did I choose to "Opt-Out" of the Load 2 Card program? I like to be in control of my +Up rewards. I also like to use the +Up reward(s) I have in a way I see fit. If I have them printed on my receipt I am more likely to use them before they expire. I can use my +Ups on whatever I wish. Where as if I chose Load 2 Card, I would definitely forget about them.
The real problem is I am a "roller." Meaning I make multiple transactions in the same day and "roll" my +Ups for the least out of pocket. Since September 2nd, 2012, You can't "roll" anymore. You have to wait until 6am the next morning for your +Ups to be "activated." For me Rite Aid will definitely lose some of my business. I honestly don't have time or gas to waste to visit Rite Aid everyday. I feel for all the couponers who did "roll" because this program will end up loosing some of our business/sales. I honestly don't know if Rite Aid thought about this Load 2 Card program on a couponers perspective? I had a $5 - $10 weekly out of pocket budget for Rite Aid. With the new Load 2 Card program I will probably skip Rite Aid and let Walmart price match.
All in all I am okay with Rite Aid's Load 2 Card program. I feel like Rite Aid could improve load 2 card program. I will personally not shop there as much. Did you "Opt-Out" of the Load 2 Card program? Feel free to comment and let me know how your experience went.
