Where can the home improvement cards you purchased at Rite Aid be used? Is it only good for specific stores?

They're good at tons of places - Lowes, Home Depot, Ace Hardware, Sears, Tractor Supply, etc. Here's the full list: https://www.homeimprovementgiftcard.com/retailers.html

Should add that they are Discover gift cards, so the store would have to accept Discover. I bought two on Black Friday and used them both in one transaction at Lowes with no problems.

Have you heard about the changes to the Wellness Card? Sounds like we won't have to print VV Coupons any more they'll be loaded to our card.
I just made it to 505, maybe I'll make it to the next level next yr :)

Thanks for the information. We're about to start a bathroom (sole bathroom) remodel. Guess I should pick a couple of these cards up.

P.S. I love hearing about your new house adventures. Keep 'em coming!

Two more questions for you.

Can you use the $10 UP that comes from the home improvement card to purchase a second home improvement card?

Does this UP end with this weeks ad (Saturday)?

That would be great! I hate watching all those videos.

That's my thinking too. We're pretty settled on big projects for the moment (going to give it a rest and build our savings back up) but its nice to have the money on hand if we need it for anything.

Unfortunately you can't use UP's towards the purchase of a gift card. I bought the gift cards and some other things on Black Friday, gave one too many UP's and it beeped because the UP's tried to cut into the price of the gift card.

The sale is good this week only, so its gonna end on Saturday. Get shopping! :)
