Kraft Shredded Cheese for $0.88 a Bag
I've told you before and I'll tell you again- I LOVE cheese! I don't think I go a day without eating some type of cheese. And usually I have 6-8 different types in my fridge at a time. Cheese is pretty pricey so anytime I can get a good deal on it, I stock up. This week there's a great deal going on at Lowe's Food stores. So here's the steal: All bags of shredded Kraft Cheese are on sal...

Happy 5th Birthday, Emma!!!
My baby is turning 5 today. She is SOOO excited about this age, and the fact that the dentist told her 2 days ago that her two bottom teeth were loose. I keep telling her she's going to look like a jack-o-lantern but she doesn't seem to mind:) I received the Picaboo book in the mail yesterday and it's all wrapped up and ready for Emma to open up. It came out REALLY nice. Can't believe I...

Vita Mix Blender – The Kitchen Appliance No Home Should Be Without
I've got to be honest with you. I hate infomercials. I also don't care much for sales Kiosks where fast-talking snake oil salesmen wearing headset microphones attempt to mesmerize you with their clever words and trivial knowledge. In fact, the Vita Mix blender Kiosk at our local Costco had been up and running for several months before we finally approached it during one of our latest visits. Prior...

Separating Transactions

Posted By: Elena in Register Rewards, Walgreens - Comments: No Comments »

Yesterday I realized the importance of separating my transactions when checking out at Walgreens.

At Walgreens buyers receive “Register Rewards” (AKA “RR”) by purchasing an item and/or certain dollar amount of an item.  These rewards are good on your next Walgreens purchase.

“To maximize your savings the key is to combine a Register Rewards producing deal or a great sale price with a manufacturer’s coupon and possibly even a store coupon. This allows you to purchase items at the lowest possible price so you can build your stockpile at a minimal cost,” suggests Deal Seeking Mom.

I had a $3 RR leftover from last week’s Neosporin Lip Therapy Deal.  I needed to buy a few items- gummy vitamins, more neosporin lip therapy, and some pedia-lax laxatives (whole new story) but only had coupons for the Neosporin.  I was fortunate that the gummy vitamins were on sale and that the neosporin lip therapy was on the monthly RR sale as long as I purchased 2.  Here is what I did:

  • Transaction #1: Gummy Vites on sale for $7.36- $3.00 RR= $4.36
  • Transaction #2: Two Neosporin lip therapy on sale 2/$8.  I had 2- $3 manufacturer coupons and this deal also printed out another $3 RR. $8- $6 manufacturer coupons = $2
  • Transaction #3: I used the $3 RR (from Transaction #2) on the Pedia-lax laxatives, bringing their price down to $4.29 from $7.29.

Had I done all of these transactions together,  I would have missed out on the $3 RR that printed out (with Transaction #2) because if you purchase the same item that you got a RR for with that RR, another one will not print out.  Does that make sense?

So, keep track of your RR’s by writing down the item/items that generated the reward on the back of it so that you will remember.   This way, if you do the same deal again, you separate the transactions, to earn another RR.

If you have any questions or comments, I’d love to hear from you!
