I was just wondering if anyone else has had trouble redeeming their register rewards. I first started using them back in February. I have had no trouble until the past couple of weeks. Before when I purchased something to redeem the RR, I was just required to have as many items in my cart for purchase as I had RR coupons. Now, they are telling me that I can only use one RR per transaction. It beeped today when I tried to use more than one. Why can't I use all the ones from the previous week on my current purchases? This is very annoying!!

I was told by my local store that the RR count as a manufacture's coupon, so you have to have at least as many items in your purchase as coupons and RR combined. Example 4 RR and 4 coupons means you must purchase 8 items. I have been throwing in small cheap fillers to be able to use my RRs with coupons since I normally have a coupon for each of my items before using the RR. Hope that helps??

I read that fine print on the RR. However, I had 7 items in my cart and only used 4 manufacturer's coupons and 1 RR. I should have been able to use 3 RR in addition to my other coupons if that was the case. I questioned the cashier to see if there was a new policy....she did not seem to know anything about it and only told me that they only accept one RR per transaction. Hmmm...

I've had all kinds of problems lately so maybe I can help. I've found that (of course) you can't go over the subtotal. It seemed like, once, I couldn't use a register reward because I had an in store coupon and maybe they were counting that one. Also don't forget to pay attention to what company gave it to you, that you don't use it for the same item again. I made that mistake and lost $4.50. I find it NEVER helps to ask a Walgreens employee ANYTHING because they tend to know nothing. I've been told I probably wouldn't get my rebate if I used a RR, not true. I had success using a $2.25 coupon on a $2 item by reducing the value then 5 mintues later a different cashier told me (trying to repeat transaction for same item) that they absolutely cannot do that. Gee, what did the girl at the photo counter just do? They are not trained to know any of this stuff.

RR have been driving me crazy lately and I am about to give up all together. I mean I'm wasting more money and time then is worth it. And I"m afraid our new CVS is going to be the same way (ECB seem a lot like RR).

I had an employee tell me that same 1 RR per transaction rule last week. So I contacted corporate and the store manager; it is not true! The rule is the same it has always been (by number of items). I was able to return everything, get the money back on my gift card, and then re-buy with my extra RR. Next time someone says that, ask for the manager. I recommend not doing the transaction(s) if you're getting that rule, because it takes a long time to fix it afterward. Yes, FRUSTRATING! Employees act all-knowing, but what they say is not always true.

I have had problems with different Walgreen's accepting the RR's. The manager told me that he would only take 1 RR and only one a week. I emailed the main office and a different Walgreen's in my area called me at my home and sent me a $10 gift card for my trouble. The manager told me that he would take all of my RR's without any problems. I think Walgreen's needs to teach their managers the rules and appreciate that we are shopping at their stores.

I've had the same problem in Florida. I use to be able to use as many RR's or coupons as I had items. That is no longer the case. They are only allowing one RR per transaction.

It's nice to know that I'm not alone - I have problems like this with RRs all the time! I am SO frustrated with Walgreens employees because they know NOTHING and there is so much inconsistency. I think we could all deal with the rules if they were consistent with them (I have the same issue with Target). We're not trying to cheat the system, just get the best deal within the system. I think the best thing to do is write the corporate office - maybe if enough of us do it they'll re-think their ways. Plus, then we can have the response from corporate to carry with us - just in case. :)

Oh - and Katie - don't judge CVS before you experience it. I've had nothing but great experiences with CVS employees and they have nowhere near the rules that Walgreens does. My only problem with CVS is that they are always out of things on "special," but that's what rain checks are for. :)

no problems here in the dallas area using multiple rrs per transaction. when i get an uneducated cashier, i politely ask them to call the manager over and that straightens it out.

I'VE ALSO HAD A REAL FUSTRATING TIME WITH RR HERE IN INDIANA. HOWEVER NO ONE HAS YET TOLD ME ONLY ONE PER TRANSACTION. BUT IN MY EXPERIANCE I HAVE LEARNED SOME. 1) YES YOU HAVE TO HAVE AS MANY ITEMS AS COUPONS RR'S ARE CONSIDERED A COUPON 2) YOUR TOTAL DOLLAR AMOUNT OF COUPONS CAN NOT EXCEED YOUR SUBTOTAL BEFORE TAX (NOT EVEN BY 1 PENNY)
AS FOR CVS I HAVE YET TO HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH CVS IT SEEMS AS THEIR EBC'S ARE MORE LIKE CASH HERE. AS LONG AS I DO NOT EXCEED MY SUBTOTAL BEFORE TAX I HAVE NOT HAD ANY PROBLEMS. BUT HERES A RULE TO KNOW THEY DO LIMIT HOW MANY OF THE SPECIAL YOU ARE ALLOWED, IF YOU ARE GOING TO TRY TO DO MORE THAN 1 TRANSACTION TO GET THE SAME PRODUCTS WATCH WHAT YOUR LIMIT IS FOR EXAMPLE YOU WANT TO BUY COLGATE AND IT SAYS LIMIT ONE PER HOUSEHOLD. IN THIS CASE YOU WILL ONLY GET 1 EBC FOR THAT PRODUCT AND IF YOU TRY TO BUY IT AGAIN IN A SPERATE TRANSACTION YOU WILL NOT GET ANOTHER EBC UNLESS HOWEVER YOU SIGN UP FOR AND USE A TOTALLY DIFFERENT CARD AND USE ANOTHER ADDRESS. HOPE THIS HELPS AND IS UNDERSTANDABLE. HAVE A BLESSED DAY AND GOOD LUCK : )

P.S. I LEFT OUT WATCH CAREFULLY ON THE SMALL PRINT ON THE RR AT WALGREENS IT DOES INFACT STATE THE INFORMATION I PREVIOUSLY GAVE YOU AND IF THE CASHIER TRIES TELLING YOU ONLY 1 PER TRANSACTION( ESPECIALLY IF THEY TRY TELLING YOU ONLY 1 PER WEEK CONSIDERING THEY ONLY GIVE YOU MAYBE 1 WEEK TO USE ALOT OF THEM) YOU SHOW THEM THE SMALL PRINT WHERE IT SAYS YOU CAN USE MORE THAN ONE AS LONG AS YOU HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT OF ITEMS AS COUPONS ETC... AGAIN GOOD LUCK EVERYONE. HAVE A BLESSED EVENING : )

Katie (and others) I feel the same way about RR and Walgreens, but I figured out that at least at MY Walgreens, (in IA) you need to have them ring the RR first, and then the mfr. coupons. I have no idea why, but it works. My Walgreens also counts the in-ad Qs as part of the total Qs in a transaction. Since I have made these 2 changes, everything has worked great for me at Walgreens. I use grocery items for fillers (rather than clearance items like some gals use) b/c I figure I'd rather spend 99 cents (just a little higher than grocery store prices) on Spaghettios or a gallon of milk (things I might buy at the grocery store anyway, and do not usually have coupons for). I've also found quite a few clearance grocery items (Peter Pan PB for $1.79) and lastly, if you want extra copies of the Sunday paper, that's a great way to use RR. I hope any of this helps. And, yes, CVS ROCKS! It is nothing like Walgreens' sudoku-esque puzzles. ECBs=cash!

Tara, can you use the Q that is linked up in the SC Johnson Right@home newsletter with the BOGO Off clip-ons? The Q is for "buy one Off clip-on and get a refill free!" If I'm not mistaken, that should mean, buy 2 starter kits at $8.99, use (1) BOGO Off Q, and also use (2) free refill Q's... making it $8.99 oop for 2 starter kits and 2 refills (and still getting a $3 RR back). Please link up for others, if it's true... or let me know if I'm "double-couponing." :) Thanks so much for your help!

Oh sweet, I never thought of buying a Sunday newspaper with my RR. Thanks Laurie. I have one comment and one question though. My comment is that it says in fine print that you can't use RR on dairy, so I'm assuming that's not going to work on your milk. Perhaps that's why I was confused one time... thought I had enough items. My question is this (Laurie or anyone)... you said that you found that if they rang up RR before MQ that it worked. Do you mean that (let's say) you had 5 items and 5 RR and 1 MQ for example... that you were able to use all 6? Or are you just saying you've had less trouble in general but still could only use as many RR/MQ as there were items. Thanks for the advice/clarification.
