Prevacid Deal at Rite Aid Update!


Just FYI – despite what was written in the Rite Aid Ad (see photo above), there may possibly be an issue with the Prevacid rebate and how much of a moneymaker it can be. Please note that Rite Aid DID say in their ad that it would be “Better than FREE” after coupon and Rebate.

HOWEVER, the rebate is in the 9/18/2011 SmartSource insert and I am looking at it now and the Fine Print says something different.

From the “fine print” of the rebate:

Free Prevacid 24 Hour 28 count offer is based on combination of $4 off coupon plus mail-in-rebate. Actual rebate amount will equal purchase price less $4 coupon, up to $18, not including tax.

So if I am reading this right, the people processing the rebate WILL be looking at your receipt for the $4 coupon and, if it was used, you will be getting the after-coupon price back as a rebate….not a “flat $18 rebate”.

So if the coupon is deducted from your rebate (as they say it will be), here is how your deal will look:

Prevacid, $19.99
Get a $3 Single Check Rebate when you buy 1
(limit 1)
$4/1 Prevacid 24Hr Product 9/18/2011 SS Insert (exp 11/18/2011)
STACK WITH $3/1 Rite Aid August Video Values coupon (if you still have it)
Pay as low as $12.99 out-of-pocket
Submit for $15.99 mail-in-rebate from the 9/18 SS (they probably won’t recognize the VV coupon and deduct that from your rebate)
AND Submit for $3 Single Check Rebate
Final price: FREE + up to $6 overage after coupons and both rebates!

As for the Rite Aid ad and how they worded it? Me thinks they are going to have quite a few annoyed customers if Prevacid sticks to the exact wording of the rebate!

[...] Pay: $9.99 + tax Receive: $3 SCR & $17.99 Mail-In-Rebate (found in 9/18 Smart Source) Note: You may want to purchase other items with the Prevacid so that you total is closer to the $17.99 mail-in-rebate amount sometimes manufacturers decline to reimburse the full rebate amount when the total is lower than the rebate amount. It’s also possible that the rebate amount will be reduced by the $4 coupon, according to Moms Need to Know. [...]
