Bottom line

JHVEPhoto/Adobe rite aid store

Rite Aid may be leaving your neighborhood, but there are still ways to save money near you.

One smart shopping hack is to switch your prescriptions to more affordable options like Costco, and you don’t have to be a Costco member to use its pharmacy.

It’s also a good idea to sign up for loyalty rewards programs at other nearby pharmacies to earn extra points and perks when you shop there.
