  1. Thanks for the linky!

  2. I think your math is off by 49 cents in transaction 3… still great scenarios!

  3. At my store, buying the Kotex is causing a Catalina to print for free Always pads. (Up to 3.50.) I also got a $4.50 off any Cover Girl Blast product as well.

    I have a question. Is there somewhere I can find information about using RR at Walgreen’s. There are times when I go to use my RR’s and the computer will not take them if I’m getting other items that end up being free with coupons. How do I figure this out? It’s confusing.

    Thanks,
    Georgene

    @Georgene, Hi Georgene! You are so right, Walgreens is confusing. I am working on a tutorial here on my site, but in the meantime, here are 2 others I recommend reading:

    Hope this helps you!

  7. I’m linking up really late, but I really didn’t do much other than buy the candy for the RR.
