So I went back to WAG to roll my RR onto more free advil (and other free stuff with the overage). Before walking in, I reminded myself to do separate transactions and to alternate RR (use the pm rr on the regular, and the regular on the pm). In the store, I arranged it all out into different transactions. Went over it several times to get the lowest oop.

My advil pm rr printed out no problem. But then my regular advil rr didn't print out, and it's the $4 one. I realized that I'd paid for that transaction with the previous $4 rr, so it didn't print another one. *doh* I didn't mention it because I didn't want the manager to come over again because he'd had to help me with the rr yesterday that didn't print, and I want to stay under the radar. So, I was thinking I'd just return it, but wouldn't that seem suspicious? I would never return something if the RR actually printed, but what if they think I'm scamming them? I'm in there so often and all of them know me and i don't want to ruin my rapport. I'm thinking I'll just keep it. After all, I did make a profit on the other ones, so it really evens out, kwim? Especially since I'm gonna go in and do it again, lol.

WWYD?

Well, I went thru my receipts & added up all of my oop. After the rebate and subtracting the RR that I haven't used yet, I spent 0.10 on 4 boxes of Advil, 4 packs of Scott tp (raincheck), 1 bubble mailer, and a toothbrush. Sooo...I'm satisfied with that. I'm not gonna sweat the $4 RR. I think from now on, I'll just buy the advil with oop money, and save the RR for next months deals. The pm is only $1.22 oop and the regular is only $2.28 oop, so I can do that a few more times. I have some spending money left that I'm willing to invest, lol.

Hmm, if you only have one Walgreens that you go to, then yeah I would probably just keep it so that you stay as much under the radar as possible. Even though you wouldn't be, you don't want them thinking you're doing something wrong.

So do we... one Walgreens, and no other drug stores.

Edited because JM is acting up.

Just went back and bought 4 more. Printed fine each time! Spent $7, earned $12 in RR. Not too shabby.

Do you have reg MC or printed ones? If printed, how were you able to print so many?

It appears to let me print unlimited quantities. They all have my name and customer number on them and I printed them normally (no back button usage or printer malfunction), so I'm assuming that I can use as many as they'll let me print. Link is on HCW in the WAG section. I also have coupons from the All You mag, the weekly newspaper, and somewhere else, don't know where, but it's for $1.50.
