Rite Aid promotes allergy health with AAAAI

CAMP HILL, Pa. Rite Aid and the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology again have partnered to help allergy sufferers with free 16-page allergy guides available in Rite Aid stores nationwide and online at riteaid.com, the retailer announced Monday.

According to the AAAAI, each year, allergies affect as many as 50 million Americans. Additional resources for allergy sufferers can be found at www.aaaai.org including an allergist locator, a pollen monitoring database for local conditions and The Virtual Allergist, an interactive tool to help patients better understand their symptoms before consulting with a board-certified allergist or Rite Aid pharmacist.

Visitors to www5.riteaid.com/health/allergies can also sign up for electronic alerts to their e-mail account, cell phone and more through Pollen.com.

Rite Aid is offering several reward programs including a three-month program that offers customers $10 or $25 Rite Aid gift cards with either $25 or $50 purchases of select allergy and health products. Customers also can take advantage of a six-month Rite Aid Allergy Rewards program, earning a $20 Rite Aid gift card by purchasing $75 of Zyrtec and/or Benadryl. Details of both programs can be found at www5.riteaid.com/health/allergies.

Rite Aid's focus on allergy awareness is part of its yearlong commitment to health and wellness. Each year Rite Aid offers free information, answers and education on health and wellness topics including skin care, oral health, diabetes, weight management and heart health.
