    HI all, I just wanted to let you know, if you are a rite aid shopper the new Rite aid coupons will be out on the 23rd. That means you will not be able to go back and watch them once they are pulled! I put a list together of ones that if you haven’t watched yet, you should for the upcoming deals next week! (HINT the $4.00 aveeno hair care!!!)
