I had a pretty good day at Walgreens. I found the Venus & Olay razors, but they were on a hanging strip near the shampoo (which isn’t in the same aisle as the shaving needs.) I spent some money on this trip, but I got some great stuff. (I bought more Milky Way bars, but I threw them in the freezer immediately in an attempt to avoid temptation.

    Wags is a pain in my tush, so I havn’t been in there for several months. My understanding is you can not use a RR from a specific manufacture to purchase another product from the same manufacture. I was never able to do this type of scenario. Has something changed in their coupon policy? Love seeing your deals!

    • I never used a RR from one manufacturer’s product and used it on a product from the same manufacturer. I saved all my RRs from the razors and used them all on the last transaction with the Zantac and composition books.

        Okay, that makes since. Thanks for clairfying it for me.

        • no prob. happy to help :)

          • I too have not been to Wags in a longggg time … Can I use my $4 off to offset my out of pocket on the other razors or not?

          • If you are planning on buying multiples of the Venus & Olay, you shouldn’t use the RRs from the Venus & Olay to lower your OOP. If you do that, you won’t get another RR and the real cost of the additional razors will be $4.99 each.

          • Thanks!!

    • I AGREE WITH YOU I ONLY GO IN THERE WHEN THEY OFFER A FREE PHOTO AND I HAVE TO PICK IT UP.THE FREE STUFF IS NOT EVEN WORTH THE TROUBLE AND THAT GO’S FOR RITE AID TO I’LLJUST STICK TO CVS AND PUBLIX.
