    Don’t you need a filler for transaction #2 since you will be using 3 coupons? (in ad coupon, $5 and the RR)

    I did the same scenario as you Alyssa! Too bad we didn’t even get this Schick coupon in our area. I’m tempted to buy some coupons but since we have so many Gillette Fusion razors already, it might just be overkill.

    Glad to participate again. It’s been a while for me! Happy Mother’s Day!

    This is a great week at Walgreens! I had a special bonus this week: I’ve finally found a local Walgreens store that will let me do multiple transactions in a row just like CVS! Hooray! Most of the other stores in my area will not allow you to “roll” your Register Rewards on the spot! Yippee!

    some peoples reported this morning that the $5 RR from the Schick Hydro 3 or 5 Blade Razor System is rolling which mean you can use it over and over to buy the same item

  5. Shannon says

    I went to Walgreens yesterday, I made 3 transactions and spent a total of 3.16, saved a total of 42.87
    I got: 3- 2 liter DP’s, 2 Schick 5 blade razors, Reach floss, 2 Infusium Sham and Cond, 1 Reach toothbrush, 1 EOS Shave Cream. I had 6.00 in RR to start with and left with 6.00 in RR’s
