Starting Sunday (5/3/15), Rite Aid kicks off their new Plenti Rewards Points program. Although we don't know all the ins-and-outs of the Plenti program since it hasn't kicked off yet, here are the basics (I'll update with any changes after the program goes live):
- You need a Wellness+ card that is activated and fully enrolled in the Plenti program in order to use and redeem Plenti points
- 200 Plenti points = at least $2 off at Rite Aid and other participating retailers. So, it appears that 100 points = $1
- Plenti points are credited to your account by 6 am the day after issuance
- You need to have at least 200 points to use Plenti points to save
- Plenti points expire after 2 years
- You can use your Plenti points at multiple retailers like Exxon/Mobil, Macy's, and possibly other retailers like (AT&T, Nationwide, Enterprise, Hulu, and Direct Energy.
- You can still earn Wellness+ points by shopping at Rite Aid to earn bronze, silver, and gold status – with gold saving you 20% off almost the entire Rite Aid store all year.
What's not yet known:
It's not clear yet whether you can use Plenti points to pay for a purchase where you earn Plenti points. It has been reported that customer service at Rite Aid has said that you can earn Plenti points no mater how you pay for the purchase, so hopefully we'll be able to roll Plenti points to cut down on the out-of-pocket on transactions.
I'll update this post next week as I hear more about how it will work exactly in real-life.
