    Josie: Do you happen to know what is the limit on the $3off next $15 purchase survey. I have about six of them and evertime I attempt to enter my code, it tells me I have reached my limit and try back later. I have waited a week and it still will not allow me to go in and rendem them. Any suggestions or ideas???

    I love your site, it is very informative and helpful!!! I just started Q about 3 months ago….my sister got me started.

  2. A says

    It is 2 pharmacy surveys and 2 store surveys per month. per computer. The more computers you have the more surveys you can do. I have 4 so i usually do 8 per month. If you have not done any surveys this month then you may have problem with cookies on your computer. I had called customer service for a similar problem. When the rep said the problem was my computer, I was like yeah right. However when I logged onto another computer I was able to do the survey with no problem.

    HI THERE,

    I’M ALSO A NEWBIE ……
    WANTED TO KNOW IF WE COULD USE ” In-ad coupon , video coupon & manufacturer coupon” @ SAME TIME PER ITEM ?

  6. Jenn says

    To clarify: I’m thinking of buying the same item today that I got Up rewards on yesterday. The limit on the item is 2 UPs.

  7. Estefani says

    I had a question I have never used my card at rite aid for the UPs does it work the same way as cvs where you get them in the receipt and you are able to spend them right away or how does it work??

    • says

      You must wait until 6 am te next day to use them. and If you have never shopped at rite Aid the +Ups will load to your card instead of print on your receipt. If you prefer them to print, you must let the cashier know that you want to opt out of the digital +Ups. Hope that helps!

  8. Yady says

    My question is…. I just recently downloaded the RA app to my iPhone. When I log in it and load coupons to my card are all of those coupons Rite aid coupons?
    Or are some of them manufacture coupons

  9. Rachell says

    I have a question regarding the +up rewards. I’m planning to buy 4 different items and each item produce an +up rewards. My question is should I do one transaction or multiple transaction to get all the +up rewards?

  10. lily says
