Rolling Register Rewards Plan of Attack

Normally at Walgreens I get great deals when I use manufacturer coupons combined with walgreens coupons plus register rewards. I usually make 8-10 dollars pretty quick in RR (register rewards) and then just buy diapers with them...but tomorrow I have a different plan of attack (and I hope it works!)
In the beginning of the week they ran out of everything...but I am told they will be restocked tomorrow...sooo...providing they have everything on my Rolling RR wishlist I'll be in good shape--wish me luck...and if youre in the mood try it out yourself!

Transaction #1
Mens Zone 6 Blade razor (comes with 2 cartridges!!) = $3.99
Get $4 back in RR
(I have a $3 RR from a purchase earlier this week)
Out of Pocket Amount (OOP) 99 cents!

Transaction #2

Theraflu cold/cough syrup = $4.99
$2 off (Walgreens Healthy Savings Coupon booklet)
they also have $2 off coupons from (but I used those with my transactions earlier this week...but if you try this out, you can combine the two coupons and buy this for 99 cents!)
Get $3 back in RR

Carefree ultra-protection pads 16 count = $1.99
$1.00 off manufacturer coupon
Get back $2 RR

Total= $4 (use the $4 earned from transaction #1)

Transaction #3
(I don't think this is official walgreens protacol-- but the asst. manager at my walgreens has told me she allows 2 of the same products in one order and will ring out the second RR separately--so make sure to check with your walgreens manager)

Buy 2 Reach products (toothbrush or floss)= $2.99 each
$1.50 off two reach products (
Total=$4.50 (use $5 RR from transaction #2)
Get back $4 RR

Transaction #4

2 Carefree pads = $1.99 each
Use 2 $1 off manufacturer coupons (
(Get back $4 RR)

1 Mens Zone razor = $3.99
(Get back $4 RR)

Total= $6
Use $4 RR from Transaction #3
Earned $8 RR

Transaction #5

Buy 1 Huggies Jumbo Pack (Sale Price with Walgreens In-Ad Coupon) $8.99
Use $1.50 off manufacturer coupon
Total= $7.50
Use $8 RR from Transaction #4

One thing that still confuses me a little bit (but I just come prepared with) is cheap "filler" items. You can only have as many coupons as when you have more coupons than items you need filler items..this week with the in-ad coupon you can get folders for 20 cents or those little notepads for 25 cents. I grab a handful and leave them in my cart and pay for them with loose change! I take it slow and ask questions to make sure I'm doing everything right...the walgreens workers have been very helpful and never given me any problems....
Crossing my fingers I'll get everything on my wishlist--If so I'll have gotten all that great useful stuff for only $3!!!!! Not bad! :)

How do you get Rolling rewards?? Is it something you sign up for??

Kelly Tillotson

nope! thats why i like walgreens, no card to deal with. in their ad it shows what products earn register rewards...(its like a coupon that prints out after you buy the item)
