How to use Rainchecks
I love rainchecks, while it does sometimes make me frustrated when a store is out of something that I need and I am wanting to buy there are times that them being out can be more beneficial, especially when after the sale a great coupon for the item comes out(I love when that happens!)
What is a Raincheck?
A Raincheck is a form/piece of paper that the store writes up for you that gives you the sale price for an item they are out of that you are wanting to buy.
Why get a raincheck?
Instead of missing out on the deal you will be able to get it another day, with the raincheck it can be when you want to get it(before the raincheck expires of course)
Do rainchecks expire?
It depends on the store, CVS rainchecks never expire and shoprites expire after 30 days so it all depends on what store you are shopping at.
How do I use my raincheck?
Using a raincheck is easy, when you go to the store get the items that you have a raincheck for, when you get to the register hand the cashier the raincheck with the items so they know ahead of time that you have a raincheck for it.
Here is the shopping trip I did yesterday with using a raincheck at CVS, so you can see how to use your rainchecks 🙂
1 Hershey’s @ 5.99 get 5.99 ECB (Raincheck from a few weeks ago)
2 crest toothpaste @ 1.99 get $1 ECB (used $1/2 coupon from 7/3 P & G) (limit 2)
2 Twix @ $1.19 Buy 1 get 1 FREE
Used 7.99 ECB and 1.69 EBC
2 Oral B Toothbrushes @ 1.99 (get $1 ECB)
used $2/2 Coupon from 7/3 P& G
used $2 ECB
To get my ECB for my raincheck item they had to manually print them.
Drug Store Rules for rainchecks
Some stores have different rules for their rainchecks,
CVS-you will get the ECB when you do a deal with the raincheck, they will manually print it
Rite Aid- You will get the Up+ Rewards on a Rite Aid Gift Card when you use your raincheck
Walgreens- you will not get your Register Rewards with a raincheck, you will only get the sale price
