Best Rite Aid Black Friday Deals from 2012
Rite Aid is one of the largest drugstore chains in the U.S., and as such, one of the most accessible destinations for Black Friday shoppers. If you’re not visiting the store to look for holiday items (of which they have plenty), then you’ll probably be stopping by to pick up some staples for maintaining you holiday shopping stamina elsewhere.
The cool thing about Rite Aid is that they understand that they generally don’t have the items at the top of most peoples’ wish lists. What they offer instead of list-toppers, is support for their customers in their own special way. For example, in 2012 they emailed customers 7 survival tips for Black Friday shopping. The survival tips showcased how Rite Aid’s products (at sale prices) could help shoppers stay hydrated and energized in the wee early hours of the Friday morning madness.
Rite Aid reiterated support for their customers by extending their hours of operation throughout the Black Friday weekend. In 2012, stores were open on Thanksgiving Day from at least 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., giving their customers ample opportunity to stock up on Black Friday necessities. For those who waited to pick up their drugstore needs on Black Friday, Rite Aid opened its doors bright and early at 7 a.m.
For those who looked for great stocking stuffers, holiday décor, and hosting must-have, Rite Aid’s 2012 Black Friday ad scan displayed plenty of stellar deals. Outstanding items included:
- Buy 1, get 2 free on wrapping paper and Christmas cards*
- $69.99 for 7-ft. pre-lit deluxe Christmas tree*
- Buy 1, get 1 free TV items including Snuggies and pillow pets (reg. $9.99-$19.99)
- $2.99 Kids Stuff toys and dolls
- $24.99 choice of 1 of 3 Christmas decorations: 5pc. Door decorating kit, 46-in. snowman tree decoration or 46-in. Santa decoration*
- Buy 1, get 2 free Willow Lane or Candle Lite 19-oz. candles*
- $1.69 Original Gourmet butter cookies
From the looks of last year’s sale, it might be worthwhile to consider getting a free Wellness Plus card with Rite Aid. All of the deals listed above with asterisks, as well as many great deals that weren’t listed, were only available to card carriers. There were also special coupons and great rewards given only to cardholders. If you want to exponentially increase your savings at Rite Aid this year, the Wellness Plus card is the way to go.
