Free Rite Aid money with J.C. Penney or Aeropostale gift card purchase is your source for free news and information in the Wilmington area.

If a shopping trip to J.C. Penney or Aeropostale is on your to-do list, you may also want to add a quick drop into Rite Aid to your list before you head to the mall!

Through Saturday night, Rite Aid is offering free Plenti Points (Rite Aid Credit) when you buy select gift cards.

One option is J.C. Penney. If you spend $50 on J.C. Penney gift cards in one transaction, Rite Aid will reward you with 500 points, which is equal to $5 to spend inside of Rite Aid.

Another choice is Aeropostale. Spend $50 in gift cards there and you will receive 500 points, which is equal to a $5 credit to spend inside of Rite Aid.

There is a limit of two on this offer, so you could buy up to $100 in retail gift cards this week and earn $10 free to spend inside of Rite Aid.

With Rite Aid’s new Plenti program, the points are not available to spend until the day after they are earned; however, the good news is that they do not expire until two years later! If you have not already, you will need to apply for your free Wellness + Plenti card prior to making your purchases in order to earn your points.

This deal lasts through Saturday, May 23, at Rite Aid!
