A lot of people have been asking me lately about the coupon game. It's difficult to get to the level I am at without starting easy.
So, if you want to get started, here's your scenario for Walgreens, this week.
$2/1 Arnicare coupon HERE
$10/1 Neuragen mq (Print this q, found in the Diabetes and You booklet HERE - company that makes Neuragen has been called and approved use of printed coupons from online magazine! - not the case for the other coupons in this magazine!)
$6 rr (from Transaction 1)
=$0 + tax
Earn $10 rr
That's it. Now you have $10 to use on something you need, or roll into another deal.
To get a little more advanced:
Gillette Fusion $9.99
$4/1 coupon from P&G insert
$2/1 Arnicare printable
$10rr from Transaction 2
Earn $6rr (Arnicare), $4rr (Gillette Fusion)
Then, if you want to go crazy, buy another Neuragen, using the Arnicare rr, saving the $4rr and earning another $10rr.
A Register Reward (RR) is a coupon earned when you purchase specific items. These are manufacturer coupons and are subject to the "One manufacturer coupon per item" rule. Therefore, you must have a "filler" or an item for the rr to "attach to". Your number of manufacturer coupons cannot outnumber your number of items (Walgreens store coupons do not count).
When you earn a rr, if you buy another of the same item with the rr earned, it will not print another rr.
For example, if you buy Arnicare with the $6 rr earned from the previous Arnicare you bought, you will not get another rr back.
RR's cannot have a value more than items purchased. If you want to buy a $5.99 item with a $6rr, you need something else in the transaction to bring your total over $6. (Another use for fillers)
You WILL receive a rr when you purchase an item using a coupon. No matter what the cashier/SS/SM may tell you.
RR's will not print if the Catalina machine is offline, out of paper, or if they have not been programmed properly at corporate.
