Some items may not qualify for free shipping.

Certain items are ineligible for our Everyday Free Shipping Program. The minimum purchase required for Everyday Free Shipping promotion doesn't include, and free shipping doesn't apply to gift certificates, bulk orders, applicable shipping charges, KidCents or sales tax. Free shipping doesn't apply to backorder, preorder, heavy or oversize items. If you have one or more ineligible items in your cart, you will be asked to remove the item(s) if you wish to qualify for free shipping, unless the remaining regular priced items in your cart meet the minimum purchase requirement for the everyday free shipping program.

General Shipping Information

Shipping Rates

Please note that shipping rates are subject to change at any time.

Order Processing Deadlines

These above numbers are estimates based on our most common orders. For overnight and expedited shipping, orders must be received before 12:00 PM EST Monday to Friday (except holidays).

Shipping Confirmation E-mails

Rite Aid will send you an automated shipment confirmation e-mail when we have finished processing your order and our transportation partner has picked it up for delivery, at which point the shipment method timeframe you have selected will commence. Please note that our transportation partners do not process orders on the weekend.  Therefore, if you place an order after the cutoff time on Friday, you may experience a delay between your shipping confirmation e-mail and the actual shipment of your order.

Shipping Carriers

Orders shipped via standard shipping may be shipped by (but not limited to) the US Postal Service or FedEx.  Unfortunately, there is no way to guarantee that your order will be shipped via a specific method when you choose standard delivery.
Please note when using expedited shipping methods we cannot request or guarantee delivery by a specific time.  Generally carriers will deliver your package by 8PM on the estimated date of delivery.

Weekend Delivery

Expedited orders shipped via FedEx (expedited or overnight) are delivered Monday to Friday only.  Orders shipped via USPS are delivered Monday to Saturday.  Delivery is not available on Sundays.

Default Shipping Address

Your default shipping address is the one used on your most recent order. At checkout, you can change your shipping address by clicking the "change" button located directly beneath the default address. This will allow you to choose another address, or enter a new address in the spaces provided.

You can change your shipping address at any time in the Shipping Addresses area of Your Account. You can add, delete, or edit any of your shipping addresses. Changes you make via the Shipping Addresses area of Your Account will not affect orders you have already placed.

Risk of Loss

All items purchased are made pursuant to a shipment contract with our carriers. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery of your order to the carrier.
