Rinse and repeat…..and rinse and…you get the idea!!! Some of you have had struggles rinsing and repeating and here’s what I know: You are allowed to roll RRs into new RRs as long as the companies are different so make sure you’ve got your RRs straight before approaching the register. I even had a WAGS employee tell me they didn’t think I’d get RRs if I used them. We tried it and it worked. They were shocked and VERY excited to learn that one!!

Wondering what to do with all those RRs? Check out my post here and here.

New to Walgreens? Don’t believe that they give away stuff? Check this out first! Spot anything else, leave a comment and let us all know. Cheers!

New around here? Thanks for stopping by! Stop back each Monday for another Granny’s Deals edition where everything is FREE! Each week I cover Meijer, Jewel, WAGS, CVS, Ultra, Strack’s plus tons of freebies and a giveaway most Tuesdays.

Gathering deals for my friends at Grocery Gathering

    I was told by a WAGS employee that I can only use one RR per transaction. So, in your example of using the Colgate RR and the Edge RR….how???

  2. Anonymous says:

    Using more than one RR per transaction must depend on the store you are at. I seem to always get turned down for two or more RR at once. Cindy

  3. Anonymous says:

    I just bought the Bayer aspirin quick release tablets from CVS yesterday, and they had a $1.00 off coupon with it (which made it free plus overage)… if you can get that coupon, then this becomes a moneymaker, right?!! I don’t know where to find it… other than grabbing it from CVS!

  4. AWESOME!!! Thank you so much. I'm SO excited about the Nivea deal. I can't wait. We're way low on body wash so this is perfect.

    As far as the RR go, you should be able to use more than one. If you read the fine print on them (at least in my area, I'm assuming it's the same everywhere) it says the number of coupons and RRs cannot exceed the number of items you have. So if you're buying 5 things you can't have more than 5 RRs & coupons total. I believe a year or so ago they used to say in the fine print you could only use one per time. But the wording has changed at least in this area. Check the fine print on yours and I would argue that you can based on the wording.

  5. Ellie's mom says:

    Great Deals!!! JOsh just ran out of Body wash so the Nivea will come in handy. Thanks.

    The WAGS deals sound great, but I’ve already been to 6 WAGS this week and none had ANY of the RR products. Anyone have any suggestions? I need a deal, I’m going thru withdrawal!!!

  7. I think Shelley is right. You can only use one coupon/RR per item. Otherwise you get a beep and the employee can’t/won’t override it. That might be a problem with some of the RR rolling with the items that have coupons. 🙁

  8. Thanks, Allison and Shelley, that’s exactly it. Plus it’s before tax so sometimes I grab something near the register to put me over the total. If you’re having probs politely ask the cashier to try it like I did. it will print a new one!

  9. The tresemme coupon states that only one coupon can be used per transaction.. Are you sure that two coupons can work in the same transaction?

  10. Updated to reflect Tresemme rules. Thanks, Jen!

  11. Jennifer says:

    Thanx to all!! I did see the fine print on the RR which is why I called a WAGS and was told only one per transaction. But, as has been stated many times on here and other blogs, it really depends on which store location and the cashier/management whether or not they actually honor word for word.

    Also, I went to the Nivea link and had to enter all of my info but I didn’t get a coupon. Will something be emailed to me for the coupon??

  12. I tried to get the $1 off coupon for Nivea body wash but can’t seem to get it. Any helpful tips?

  13. Educational says:

    I went to Walgreens today and had the $8 RR from Cod liver oil. Went to purchase roots of nature and Bayer. Used the $1.00 off the Bayer and the RR, It wouldn’t print any more RR. The clerk said it was because I paid with a RR, but I thought as long as you used the RR from a different company the new RR would still print.

    Help, what happened. I should have gotten a 2.50 and 6.00 RR

  14. Allison says:

    That is strange. I would call the CAT company and ask. I had an issue the other day at Jewel where I should have gotten a CAT and it didn’t print. They were very nice and are mailing me one. Good luck!
