Rain Check Policies at the Drug Stores


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

What's the Deal with Rain Checks? Remember that if your store is out of the item you are looking for, you can always get a rain check! Rain checks are something that I didn't really know or think about when I first started couponing. Now I don't feel the pressure to make sure I get the items before the weekly sale is over.

Quick: Pop quiz! When you go to your favorite grocery store, do you choose a cart instead of a basket? Hum along to the tune that’s playing?
