Rite Aid offers gift cards loaded with different amounts of money prior to purchase, as of 2015. Its gift cards are single-load cards, meaning that customers cannot add any additional money to Rite Aid gift cards after they have purchased them.
Once purchased, people can only use Rite Aid gift cards to purchase goods and services offered by authorized and participating Rite Aid locations. Rite Aid gift cards are not redeemable for their cash value, even if they have a small remaining balance. The exception to this rule is if Rite Aid gift cards come from a state that legally requires retailers to give customers a cash version of the remaining balance.
