Just got ripped off by them automatically rounding off to nearest dollar for some charity of theirs.Did not even ask me first like stores usually do and then refused to return my money when I realized they over charged me.

I have three charities I give to every year that I trust, I do not appreciate them automatically taking my money like that, and rude on top of it all.

Imagine if all stores started to do that!I will never shop there again plenty of other drugstores around!

Everyone here is so dumb...yeahe, it asked you on the keypad, and yeah you hit "yes, every time" instead of "yes, just this one time" or "no." YOU made a mistake.....YOU weren't paying attention and hit the wrong button...or maybe ur husband or kid who had the same card as you hit the wrong button one time. Take a freaking Xanax and stop complaining. I'm sorry the cashier or manager had to deal with *** things like this.

This is a scam. Plain and simple. We don't know where the money is going and we are not agreeing to pay into it. Did you read all 100 pages of the terms and conditions on every single thing you buy or download? Give me a break. I can't wait for the lawsuit, which is coming soon. That's going to take a lot of money out of your little scamming hands.
Nice bait

This is happening in Michigan and they are claiming YOU signed up for it. Their explanation is that you must have "accidentally" hit the button that gives them the authority to charge you for kidcents on every purchase you make, without consent. This is the most brazen scam I've ever seen from such a large retailer and chain. If there is a lawsuit I want in. I've had to "opt out" of this scam multiple times already, and I know I never agreed to it.

Rite Aid used to ask at the point-of-sale whether a customer wanted to donate to their Kidcents charity. If you say yes ONE TIME, it then automatically continues to put it on your purchases without your permission. So if you go in a hundred times a year, they've scammed over $100 bucks off of you! It's a complete gimmick! I called the store and they told me I had to go into the store to change the automatic charitable donation. So I'm going to do it.
BTW, I give to many charities and donate a lot of my time volunteering for causes that are dear to my heart. However, having Rite Aid force their charity onto my purchases is just wrong, wrong, wrong.

This happened to me to but I thought that at one time maybe I agreed to it but couldn't remember doing so. There have been plenty of times when grocery stores, such as the Jimmy Fund, will ask if you would like to donate a certain amount and I often do but I have been more Leary and wiser over the years and like to investigate the organization first. This is not right for them to do- our Government is bad enough!!!
While what they did was wrong, telling you "no" is not the same as being rude.
Same happened to me today..will never shop there again..really bad business practice
Same thing happened to me it's been going on for a long time. I didn't realize it till yesterday,,cannot believe that sort of Scam , so I got online waited 18 minutes to update out of that *** needless to say I'll be going to Walgreens or CVS to *** with right aid.!!!
I work at rite aid. I just want to clear up a few things .A rite aid associate cannot opt anyone in they don't give us that much control. We can't even void an item over ten dollars without manager approval. Kid cdnts did two waves of offering the customers to opt in. One when it started and one recently. All cashiers have an option in one if the tabs on their register to opt a customer OUT of kidcents at their request. If they don't know where the button is ask them to get someone who does. Kid cdnts can be refunded just like anything else using the barcode on the brochure. We are everday people just like you. We don't wake up in the morning looking for ways to take peoples money. If you came in to my store with any of the complaints above I would take care of you. So should any rite aid store. All this aside kidcents is a great program with the overhead paid for by us and tax deductible
