Cordcutter Savings: $5 Rite Aid Rewards with $25 Netflix Gift Card

Cordcutters! Did you know you can save on your Netflix monthly fees? You can’t get a direct discount from Netflix, BUT you can buy Netflix gift cards at a discount, and apply them to your own Netflix account. Thus getting an indirect discount!

Which brings us to Rite aid brick and mortar stores. Good until Saturday at the close of business (that’s January 27 in 2018), you can buy a $25 Netflix plastic gift card, and receive $5 back in Rite Aid rewards (which you can begin spending the next morning at Rite Aid). This roundabout promotion is a 20% savings, assuming you’ll have no problem finding things to buy at Rite Aid.

The promotion is limit two per customer for this week, so $50 in Netflix should keep your account running for about 4.5 months if you have the default Netflix plan.

If you don’t want Netflix, fear not! Other retailers are also participating in this promotion, as you can see in the pictures above and below:

Note that the GAP and Best Buy offers are $8 Rewards BUT with the purchase of $50 gift cards, not $25 gift cards. The rest of the retailers (Bass, Cabellas, Dominos, Xbox, etc) participate in the $5 rewards for $25 gift card promotion.

Cordcutter Deal at CVS this week with Gift Cards

If you are a cordcutter, there’s a great deal this week at your local CVS stores! If you buy $50 in plastic gift cards from Netflix or GooglePLAY or Xbox/Microsoft, their cash register will print just for you $10 in Extra Bucks. When you do the math, this is a virtual 20% off discount! Limit one per customer. Offer ends Saturday night when the stores close (5/27/17).

Neither Netflix nor GooglePLAY gift cards get discounted on a regular basis, so this is a great opportunity to score a prepaid discount. Or you can hold on to the gift cards and give them out as gifts in case of emergency ~ Dads and Grads are upon us after all 🙂

Another opportunity: Once you get the $10 Extra Bucks, then you can go for the $20+ in P&G products promotion at CVS. If you spend that much (finding things you need and/or on sale) will get you a new $5 in Extra Bucks. So you can daisy-chain the two offers 🙂

Great Cordcutter Gift Card Deals at RiteAid with Plenti Rewards

Good until the close of business on Saturday April 15 in 2017, at Rite Aid brick and mortar stores, for those participating (or willing to join) the Plenti rewards program, there is a trio of loaded gift card deals for cordcutters!

  • Buy $50 Netflix Gift card, get 800 Plenti Points ($8 equivalent)
  • Buy $30 in Google PLAY or iTunes, get 500 Plenti Points ($5 equivalent)
  • limit two Neflix and limit two combination of iTunes and Google Play)

This is a very good deal, it’s an effective 16% discount on Netflix (you can load it up on your account in just a few seconds) and an effective 20% discount on Google Play (discounts are rare). It’s not a bad discount for iTunes, but sometimes you can find a 25% or 30% through store gift card promotions (Walgreens has a recurring buy $30+ in iTunes, get $10 Walgreens gift card, but it’s not running right now).

20% off back in Plenti points with $25 Netflix Gift Card

Cordcutters, unite and take over! For the shopping week of Sunday February 12 until the close of business on Saturday February 18 (2017), at Rite Aid brick and mortar stores, you get 20% back in Plenti points when you purchase a $25 prepaid Netflix gift card. That’s 500 points, which have $5 buying power in future purchases at Rite Aid and other participating Plenti merchants. The promotion is limit two for the shopping week (as usual).

Given that Netflix is rarely discounted, this is pretty, pretty, pretty good! Plenti is free to join, and you can always spend your points on Exxon-Mobil gas if you don’t need anything else from the other participating merchants.

Just remember that Plenti points don’t roll, so don’t use points to buy items that qualify for new Plenti points. Use them on everything else 🙂

Nov 6-12: buy $20 Netflix Gift Card, get 400 Plenti Points (limit 2)

Good news Netflix users! In addition to the Black Friday Plenti offer, Rite Aid is offering another Netflix gift card offer for the week of November 6-12 in 2016 at their brick and mortar stores. The amounts are different for this offer, buy a $20 Netflix gift card and get 400 Plenti points to use in the future. That’s a 20% virtual discount. The promotion is limit two per customer for the week. Typically they carry the $15-to-$100 Netflix gift cards, so you have to tell the cashier that you want $20 loaded on your gift card.

PS: 400 Plenti points have the buying power of $4 at Rite Aid, Macy’s, Exxon-Mobil and other participating places. I’ve been doing these gift card Plenti offers for a few months now, and they do work as expected. Just make sure you get the right amounts and during the correct week 🙂
