Does Rite Aid Cash Checks?
Rite Aid drugstores do not offer check cashing services, a corporate customer service representative said. We confirmed this policy with Rite Aid stores in Colorado, Georgia, New Hampshire, Texas, and West Virginia; none of the stores we contacted cash checks.
While you can’t cash a personal check or any other type of check at Rite Aid, similar retailers like Kroger and Walmart do have check cashing services available. To find out more, see our articles on the stores, banks, and credit unions that cash checks and the places that offer free check cashing.
Does Rite Aid Take Checks?
While Rite Aid does not cash checks, it does take checks as a form of payment, customer service representatives said. You can pay for any in-store purchase with personal check.
The cashier may ask you to show a valid, government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license or state identification card, in order to pay by check.
Rite Aid does not offer cash back on purchases made with personal checks; you will need to use a debit card if you want cash back, as previously reported.
