Some of the biggest pharmacy chains do far more than just fill prescriptions — and Rite Aid is certainly no exception. In fact, Rite Aid is a one-stop shop for everything from groceries to beauty supplies to household items. Also, Rite Aid carries an extensive selection of gift cards for various retailers, restaurants, and more.

We contacted Rite Aid customer service and asked them to provide us with a comprehensive list of all the gift cards they stock, and we were informed that gift card selection varies from store to store, though it is usually pretty consistent. With that in mind, we headed down to the local Rite Aid in Linden, New Jersey, to see what they had on the racks.

Common Gift Cards Sold at Rite Aid

Even though there were a few companies we were surprised we didn’t see on the racks, the sheer number of options are pretty awesome. We also asked a clerk at the store if their gift card set up was pretty similar in size and scope to other Rite Aid stores, and she confirmed that most Rite Aid stores have a similarly large collection. Check out the stores we found! Here’s the Rite Aid gift cards list:

Gift Cards You’ll Not Likely Find at Rite Aid

While Rite Aid really does have a large and comprehensive offering of gift cards, there were a few bigger brands we had our eyes out for that we couldn’t find at the local Rite Aid:

  • Babies ‘R Us
  • Chick-Fil-A
  • Dave & Busters
  • Justice
  • Netflix
  • Redbox
  • Sephora
  • The Cheesecake Factory
  • Ulta
  • Victoria’s Secret

The Rite Aid customer service representative we contacted advises customers to call their local Rite Aid ahead of time to see if they carry a specific gift card.

What you won’t find at Rite Aid are competitor gift cards like CVS or Walgreens. If you’re looking for those gift cards, you’ll need to visit their stores instead.

Prepaid Credit Card Options at Rite Aid

Maybe you’re shopping for someone with unique tastes, or maybe you need a gift card to pay your bills. Whatever the case, Rite Aid has plenty of prepaid and re-loadable gift cards to choose from:

  • American Express Gift Card (Fee: from $3-$6)
  • American Express Secure Pay Card (Fee: about $5)
  • American Express Serve (Fee: about $3)
  • Green Dot Cash Back Visa Debit Card (Fee: about $2)
  • Green Dot Prepaid MasterCard (Fee: about $2)
  • Green Dot Prepaid Visa (Fee: about $2)
  • MoneyPak (Fee: about $6)
  • My Vanilla Visa (Fee: about $3)
  • netSpend Visa Prepaid Card (Fee: about $3)
  • OneVanilla Prepaid Visa Card (Fee: about $5)
  • Vanilla MasterCard (Fee: about $5)
  • Vanilla Visa (Fee: from $3-$6)

Rite Aid’s Plenti Card Program and Upromise

Rite Aid’s loyalty program, the Plenti card, can be used to save you even more with gift cards. Occasionally, Rite Aid runs gift card promotions. Recently they ran a promotion where if you spent $50 on gift cards, you’d receive $10.00 in +UP rewards to use in the store.

Rite Aid is also a Upromise partner. Upromise earns you money for college by partnering with different companies that contribute small amounts whenever you make a purchase. You can register your Plenti card with Upromise and add a little bit to your college savings account with each gift card purchase too.

In Summary

And that’s the Rite Aid gift cards list. Rite Aid carries a surprisingly large array of big department store, smaller specialty store, restaurant, and entertainment gift cards. They also have many prepaid credit card options. The large variety of gift cards, combined with their Plenti card and their Upromise partnership, makes Rite Aid an excellent resource for the next time you need to pick up a gift card.
