    Does anyone know – can the register rewards be applied to purchase another item that would also give register rewards? Thinking it would be possible to buy the toothpaste, apply the $4 in register rewards to the tide deal (which also gives register rewards) and continue to flip. TIA to anyone who knows.

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes! As long as you don’t buy the same deal item, you can spend and earn RR in the same transaction. So if you bought more Crest, you wouldn’t get another $4 RR but you can buy something else and earn.

      • Val

        Thank you!

          From past experience, you have to be careful with PG RR deals, especially if using digital q’s. Sometimes the RR will attach to a random product and if you have a dq, it won’t apply. Also, PG RRs sometimes don’t roll over, especially if the value of the RR you’re redeeming is the same value that is printing out.
          I prefer to use points, get my RR, then use my RR on a points deal instead.

    I’m kind of new to this but I don’t understand how this ends up being free. Pay $3.98 Get back $4 RR. Even considering that you get a register reward that’s worth $4, you are still out of pocket the $3.98.

    If you were to return to the store later the same day and redeem the register reward that’s worth $4 you could get $4 worth of merchandise, but you would still be out of pocket the $3.98 you originally paid.

    To maximize this deal, you could replicate the original purchase of $3.98 plus a $0.02 filler item that would bring your total to $4. So the total would be $3.98 for four tubes of toothpaste instead of two. Getting the items for half off is still a good deal but it’s not free.

    The only way this deal would be completely free is if you bought the toothpaste for $3.98 and they mailed you a rebate check for the full $3.98.

      You have to clip the $2 digital coupon. Read the whole post, it explains it there.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi, Arnold S! Yes, you are paying $3.98 out of pocket and it’s like getting it free as you’ll receive $4 in the merchandise you won’t have to pay for later.

      Maybe coupon sites aren’t for you then.
      🙂

      Sorry that was mean. Maybe you should look at the ad first and see something that you want/need to buy that is a good deal. Something you are going to buy no matter if you have the RR or not. Then you can consider the toothpaste free if you use the RR on that item.

    • Pam

      There is nothing wrong with asking questions. I also have problems with the math of “free deals”. But if you are going to do the deal anyway it all work out in the end

      • JS

        You will learn to like this type of free better. If it is a $2 item and there is a $2 coupon in the paper then the product will probably be out before you get to the store.

    • mel

      I totally understand. It’s really why I don’t go by a bloggers “final price”. When I have to pay OOP, I NEVER count my earned reward on *that* purchase. Rather when I spend it. I see people post all the time that they earned an $xx reward, counting it on that purchase to make it “free”, then when they redeem the reward, it’s counted again. Like, no. That’s not how it works!

      I consider my OOP as an initial investment towards a stores reward program. So if I’ve never stepped foot in Wags before, I’d pay $3.98 (+ tax) and get $4 back. So I’ve paid for the toothpaste. But the next deal I will use the reward and it will lower my oop (or make the items I’m purchasing free). If I burn the RR on something that costs $4, (meaning I’m not getting another reward in return), then I will have paid $4 for $8 in merchandise.

    With too many toothpaste deals around in different stores, that be a dealmaker to return them once you redeemed the $4 merchandise credit ! Has anyone done that ? Does it bring the balance rewards of W -ve ? What impact does it have ?

    • JS

      If everyone did that they would stop offering these types of deals. Don’t ruin it for everyone else.

    • mel

      Once you’ve purchased a reasonable amount of toothpaste for your needs, STOP buying it! For my family of 4, (and I’ve kept track so I know this), we go through 16 tubes a year. So I keep 8 tubes stocked up at all times. I’ve gotten as low as 2 tubes, and because the deals on toothpaste are so frequent, it only takes a few deals to get back up to 8. If I just can’t pass up on a deal, because it’s a MM, then I will put them in my donation bin. Several times a year, I donate a box to local pantries. And my son’s school is collecting personal needs items for those affected by Hurricane Dorian, so I was able to pull some tubes and other items for him to bring to school.
      Returning stuff that’s a dealmaker, really isn’t hip at all. If you don’t need it, don’t buy it. Give someone else a chance to do the deal instead of finding an empty shelf.

    Is RR the same as balance rewards? Also, I have another question. Last week, they had a deal where you buy 4 Tresemme items for $20 and you get 10,000 rewards points. If I had redeemed 5,000 points and paid $15 OOP, i only get a prorated part of the 10,000 reward points. Is this true? I called up customer service and that is what they told me. (If it helps, I did this deal online). Thanks for any insight!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Aly! There are Register Rewards and Bonus Rewards points. You can only earn and redeem points on unit offers. Find more details on their rewards over here –> https://hip2save.com/walgreens-store-guide/ Hope this helps!

      • Aly

        Thanks Amber!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          You’re very welcome!

    It’s a good deal unless you leave the store and realize they didn’t give you the register rewards coupon. I went during my lunch break and didn’t realize it until I got back to work. :(.

    • Nb

      Me too!!!! 😩

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh darn! Maybe try to call the Catalina company directly. 1-888-8coupon – Be sure to have your receipt when you call. Hope that helps!

      • Nb

        Yes, it is a simple process. You have to submit within 7 days of your purchase and upload a copy of your receipt to support.catalina.com.

  6. Christine Jauch

    Don’t forget to read the”select” toothpaste you have to buy for the $2 coupon, mine was the kind that were $7.99/ea

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)
