Walgreen's Scenario for RRs

First Transaction-

Scunci No Damage Hair Elastics $2
Tone Body Wash $3.99
Pay 5.99, get 5.00 RR.

Second Transaction-

Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor System $9.89
Pure Silk Shave Cream $1.99
Hunt's Tomato Sauce .34 (filler item)
Total is $12.22.
Use $4/1 from 5/1 PG
and 5.00 RR from 1st transaction.
Pay only 3.22, get 6.50 RR

Third Transaction-
Buy Complete Multi-Purpose Solution $7.99
Hunt's Tomato Sauce .34 (filler item)
Total is 8.33.
Use $1 from 5/22 RP
and 5.50 RR from 2nd transaction.
Pay only 1.83, get 8.99 RR


Total OOP for all 3 transactions is 10.36. Earn 8.99 in RR towards your next purchase. You got paid to buy the items in the 2nd and 3rd Transactions! It does take a little bit of money to get started, but it is easy once you figure it out! Walgreens does have rules about how you can use your RR, and I will post a copy of their coupon policy when I get a chance. The transactions above do work with their policy. Filler items are items you buy for very cheap to "attach" a coupon to for it to work. Part of Walgreens' policy is that you have to have equal number of items that you do coupons, especially if it is a Manufacturer coupon, and a Register Reward in the same transaction. What you need to do, is look through the ad each week and find something cheap, normally around .25 or so that you can use for this purchase. I happen to have needed tomato sauce this week, so this worked out well for me.

Abbreviations used in this post:
RR : Register Rewards ( think $ off your next purchase)
PG : Procter and Gamble inserts
5/1 : from Sunday May 1
OOP: Out of Pocket

Happy Saving!
