Is the single count thermacare considered a “trial size”? I have a $3/1 MQ for any except trial size… I’m assuming it won’t work??

Grace,
Yes, the single count is considered trial size.

Glen,
I haven’t ironed out my scenarios yet, but I wouldn’t take my chances with using a $3 RR from the Crest to buy Herbal Essence, the 2.99 RR will most likely be a $3 RR and they are both P&G products. It appears to me that the $3 RR will be the one to keep track of, there are at least 6 freebies that are producing them. I’m still questioning the Scuni one, online it shows they are owned by the Conair Company but I’m not sure. It’s much easier to look at the company differences by comparing coupons or RR’s. Haven’t even looked at the higher priced vitamin freebies, so there might be some overlapping companies there as well.

Glen November 19, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Hmmm, I’ll have to research companies. Most of the stuff I can use to stock up is in those 3 dollar ones.

Reply

Brenda November 19, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Here’s what I’ve found so far:
Scuni: Conair Corp.
Herbal Essence: P&G
Crest: P&G
Cepacol: Reckitt Benckiser (Del Rio, TX)
Thermacare: Wyeth (El Paso, TX)
Tums: GlaxoSmithKline (El Paso, TX)
It looks like we will be fine except the 2 P &G ones.
Also there’s 2 $1 RR for Carmex and Advil, but they are different companies so those should be fine as well.

Glen November 19, 2012 at 7:40 pm

hehe awesome. You rock;)

Brenda November 19, 2012 at 8:10 pm

yeah, well it’s much easier to work together to figure these things out. They can try and confuse us, but we’ll find a way to make it work!

Glen November 19, 2012 at 1:09 pm

So I should be able to, say, buy the crest, use the RR for the herbal essence then roll to the thermalcare then the scunci then repeat to store limit then switch stores? Any conflicts there as far as manufacturers? I saw somewhere that crest and the herbal are both P&G. Does that mean they won’t print RR for each other?
Thanks in Advance.

Has anyone figured out scenarios yet to get the free stuff in several transactions in order to use register rewards to minimize out of pocket expense? My brain is overwhelmed by so much at once!

Reply

Glen November 18, 2012 at 11:17 pm

hehe I was wondering the same thing. Not looking forward trying to do the scenario math :)

jamie November 14, 2012 at 10:09 am

If i want 10 shampoos, can I just do 10 different transactions, pay $2.99 each time and receive a RR each time? Or will my rewards only allow 1 shampoo RR per day?
Thanks :)

Reply

Brenda November 14, 2012 at 7:49 pm

Jamie,
Technnically you can buy 10 shampoos in one day, just don’t use the same rewards to purchase your next one or you won’t get a new RR. However, the local stores around here have set up store limits (usually 2 per person per day) to help minimize shelf clearing.

I ordered the paper through the webinar and have all the correct dates for the inserts labeled above, so how come I’ve gone through the first five items and can’t find any of the coupons in the corresponding inserts?? Frustrated. I want to coupon, I really do :)

Reply

Brenda November 13, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Carrie,
It can be really frustrating when you can’t find the coupons in your inserts that are listed for the store deals. The thing is, many of them are considered regional coupons. This means not every area will get them in their inserts, but the people making these posts are going to list all of the possible coupons available.
I am assuming that you live somewhere in Oregon, do you get your inserts from the Oregonian? I live across the river but get my inserts from the Oregonian and the Columbian. According to my lists, I did not receive the Advil or Carmex coupons that are listed above. I did get the Midnight and the Crest coupons, so you might double check those out. I totally understand how frustrating it is to feel like you are missing out on deals because you can’t find the right coupons, but hang in there and I’m sure you’ll catch on. The learning curve is a big one when it comes to couponing, and I was pretty overwhelmed at first but you have found a great place to help you out. Feel free to ask any more questions you have, we all started out where you are now!

Thanks, Amanda! Answered my question exactly.

Carrie November 11, 2012 at 7:40 pm

Question about RR’s – I know that you only get one per day for that item (like for the herbal essences shampoo – I can only get one RR no matter how much shampoo I buy), but can you get multiple RR’s in one transaction if you buy multiple things that have them? Does that make sense?? Seems like a lot of really good ones on here!

Reply

amanda November 11, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Carrie-you can get multiple RRs from one purchase, but not the same item. Example- if you buy a herbal essence for $2.99 & an Advil pm for $1, a $2.99 rr for the herball essence and a $1 rr for Advil will print. If you buy 2 herball essences in one transaction, only one RR will print. Also, you can roll the RRs but not on the same item. Hope that helps :)

Brenda,
Thank you so much! You are very right. Sounds like I can figure this out, Ive heard many people having issues with Walgreens and couponing though. Do you know why? Also, do they have a problem with multiple transactions?

Reply

Brenda November 11, 2012 at 9:54 pm

Tawni,
Personally, I think Walgreens can be pretty confusing at first. They do have quite a few rules to remember, but once you get going and do a few transactions it will get easier!
I recommend starting with very small transactions, that way you won’t have so much to keep track of. I generally do not do multiple transactions at one store, because I have 4 different Walgreens within a couple miles of each other. I guess it will just depend on your personal situation, many people do multiple transactions at one store with no issues.
Do you have your Walgreens card yet? They can give you one in the store if you don’t. You will learn pretty quickly which cashiers are helpful and nice to couponers, and which ones you want to avoid! I have the best luck at the cosmetic counter, they usually are not as busy so you won’t feel so rushed.

Tawni November 10, 2012 at 10:41 pm

Dont understand about the RR quite yet, I just read the guide but I had heard from someone else about you not being able to use the RR’s till the following day? And something about it needing to be printed out on the reciept? Im confused. Does it just print out like a catalina to use then?

Reply

Brenda November 10, 2012 at 11:38 pm

Tawni,
It can be confusing to learn at first! I think you are confusing RR’s (Walgreens) with UpR’s (Rite Aid).
RR’s are like catalina coupons. They will print seperately from your receipt. You do not have to wait until the next day to use them (Rite Aid’s UpR’s make you wait).

Reply

Laurel November 10, 2012 at 10:09 pm

The math on the Cepocol doesn’t line up. $3 each, buy 2…that should mean pay $6 and get $3 RR. Hoping it’s just a typo–a great deal if the RR is actually for one item.

Reply

Glen November 10, 2012 at 9:30 pm

Darcy. RR stands for register rewards. If you click the link at the top of the post where it says Walgreens store guide it will tell you all about them. Basically they are money off your next purchase. There are some tricks to them though.

Darcy November 10, 2012 at 9:15 pm

What is or are RR? :)

Some people are more than happy to work on holidays like Thanksgiving. Most stores will ask for volunteers to work, so end up with people who don’t have family or who aren’t close enough to share the day with them. Working a holiday also gets most people holiday pay. My store is open on Thanksgiving and I volunteered to work; not only will that give a chance to those with families to enjoy the holiday, but I will get a chance to make some extra money.

Rose November 11, 2012 at 6:49 am

I agree, there are a lot of people who really need to, and want to, make extra cash before xmas. There are a lot of professions where you have to work the holiday. I am a nurse and we have to work one of the holidays thanksgiving, xmas or new years. Sometimes have to work 2 of the holidays. Also there are people that really need to work the holidays due to no family in town, and workplace is their 2nd family, if they stayed home, they get very sad and depressed, they offer to work. People that work holidays just plan to celebrate around their work schedule.

Reply

Stacy November 11, 2012 at 4:15 pm

When I worked retail I also volunteered to work holidays and most people did. I generally made about $35 an hour that day. For retail couldn’t pass that pay up.

Reply

Beth November 10, 2012 at 7:45 pm

The deals go Thursday through Saturday. Please don’t shop Thursday. Tell retailers that their employees should get their Thanksgiving. Show your family and friends that they are more important than a deal. I’m not usually active in speaking my mind, but I really think retailers are cashing in on greed and taking our holidays and family time away.

The problem is that the good deals at walgreens will be gone tomorrow.
