Royal Jello $.20 with instore ad coupon ( used as a filler item)

I started out with a $8.00 Register Reward from last week.

Transaction #1

  • Bought 1 box Contact and 1 box of Colgate
  • Paid with a $1.00 colgate coupon (forgot to use my $2.00 Contact coupon, darn it)
  • I also paid with an $8.00 RR from last week
  • Final price $.49 plus tax $.57 = $1.06
  • After I paid I got back  a $3.50. and $6.00 Register Reward

Transaction #2

  • Bought 2 Purex, 6 Mentos, 3 boxes of Royal jello
  • Paid with 2 $3 coupons fro Purex, 6 $1.00 coupons for Mentos
  • Had them scan the Instore coupon for the Jello and the Royal Jello
  • I bought the Jello as a filler item so I could pay with a RR and have my coupon item ratio work out.  I wanted to pay with a $3.50 RR, I had to add two more boxes of Jello to get my subtotal up high enough so I could pay with the $3.50 RR.  Remember you can not pay for tax with a RR.
  • I then paid with a $3.50 RR from transaction #1, brought total to $1.42
  • After I paid I got back a $1.00 RR from the Purex

WALGREENS TIPS

  • To view Walgreens official coupon policy click here
  • I always check out at the cosmetics counter, and if anyone comes behind me I let them go first, so I do not hold up the line.
  • One thing to remember about Walgreens RR (register reward) is you can not use a “chap stick RR” to pay for another chap stick and have another RR print. BUT you can use a “toothpaste” RR to pay for chap stick and have another RR print.
  • Also remember that Walgreens has a coupon item ratio rule, you can only use as many coupons as you have items. They count RR as coupons. So if I was only buying 4 items ( all of which had manufacture coupons which meant my item coupon ratio was already 4 to 4) I wanted to pay with a RR I would need to ad a filler item something cheap like a pencil. This would then make my coupon ration 5 ( 4 manufacturer coupons and 1 register reward) and my item ratio 5. I then could pay with my coupons and RR with no problem. An instore coupon does NOT count as a coupon in this ratio….just as a sale price.
  • Also remember that only one RR per product will print per transaction. For example If wanted to buy 3 bottles of Aussie shampoo. In order to have 2 RR print for each one I had to buy them in 3 transactions. My store is happy to let me go thru the line more than once ……but some store will limit you.
