Rain Checks

Ralphs issues rain checks on out-of-stock items. Most stores will only issue rain checks on items that are advertised in the current sales ad. If the ad states a disclaimer such as “while supplies last,” “no rain checks,” or “limited quantities,” rain checks will not be issued. 

Rain checks must be redeemed within 30 days of the issued date and cannot be bought, sold or copied. Management has the right to limit quantities that can be purchased using a rain check or to reject the use of a rain check.

Catalina Coupons
Catalinas can be found in different ways: shelf tag in the store, or by receiving an upcoming Catalina advertisement at checkout. Catalina machines are located at registers and dispense receipt-like coupons (after checkout) that can be used on a future purchase.

When shopping for deals that include Catalina offers, separate transactions accordingly, in order to receive the Catalinas and to pay the lowest final price. Catalina coupons can be used on any future purchase of any item, unless otherwise specified. There is no limit on the quantity of Catalina coupons that can be redeemed in a single transaction.

Catalina coupons do have expiration dates, so redeem them before the date listed on each coupon. Expired Catalina coupons and offers are not accepted or honored.

Fuel Points
Most Ralphs stores have fuel centers close by. Fuel points are earned by purchasing items with a shopper’s card. Fuel points are accumulated and can be redeemed to save up to $1.00 per gallon of gasoline. Customers save $0.10 per gallon for every 100 points redeemed. Once fuel points are redeemed, they are no longer available for use until more points are accrued.

Ralphs offers a fuel points promotion where customers can earn double, triple, or up to four times the amount of fuel points for products purchased. Fuel points are also earned on prescriptions that are filled in the pharmacy.

For example, there will be a total of four items in which two items are purchased and the other two items are free. In most stores, BOGO items will ring up for half of the shelf tag price. This allows you to redeem two coupons; one for each item, and following the specified limits on the coupon.
