Walgreens: $5 RR plan

From now until the end of the day Saturday you have the chance to gain a $5 RR from Walgreens when you spend $25 on ANYTHING in the store. There are conflicting comments about this RR and how it works. Some say your subtotal has to be $25 after coupons and other reports deny this to be true. The ad says nothing about the use of coupons. So I have created a "safe" plan that should work regardless and you are only spending 1.99 OOP! Here it is:
  • Buy 1 Colgate total or Max Fresh toothpaste=2.99 (get $2 in RR back)
  • Buy 1 FAR bald guys item=5.99 (FAR, 5.99 back in monthly rebate)
  • Buy 2 Reach products=$6 (get $6 in RR back)
  • Buy $15 worth of coke products=$15 (get $5 in RR back) (I will be buying 3 12 packs and 4 2 liters)
Total=29.98
-1/1 colgate coupon
- 3 1/1 Coke coupons (printed from coke rewards)
New total=25.98

I will get back $5 RR for purchasing $25 worth of stuff, $2 RR for Colgate, $6 RR for reach, $5 RR for Coke and a 5.99 rebate for the monthly product=23.99 back, which means I only spend 1.99 OOP for all that!

I like to look at this as getting 3 12 packs of Coke for only 1.99 or .66/1!

Hey Mel- I actually did a little different scenario where I spent more OOP because I had reach RR's to roll and I couldn't buy reach or wouldn't have gotten other the RRS in return since I was using reach RRs to pay- so I bought some Christmas paper goods, but it all worked out great though!

Rupali-
You get a coupon from coke rewards by entering your codes form coke products and redeeming your points. It takes 35 points to redeem 1 coupon. If you hit the back button during printing you will likely get 2:)

Hi Shannon -

It worked for me (in Manhattan) to use coupons and still get the $5 RR. I did the Walitin deal a couple of times today and got the RR both times.

Details are here if you're interested:

Hey Shannon -

I was able to use coupons and still get my $5 RR. I did the Walitin deal a couple of times today, total was $4.25 both times and both transaction produced RR.

10th and Gage had no limit on the Hallmark tissue paper at .19. The paper plates at .79 was also a good deal, although this store was out of stock, so I had to get a raincheck.
