  1. Okay, I'm trying to figure out how I can do these deals. My first time. My plan is just to do the oral care deal. If I buy two rembrandt in the same transaction will I get $4+UPR? Is there a limit on UPR items? And are the UPRs at the end of your receipt just like CVS extra bucks? Where did you get the B1G1 Reach coupon? ~Mindy

  2. 1. I do not think you will get $4 +UPR if you buy two Rembrandt. It seems to be different with every item (I bought two Nivea and got the reward twice but I bought two Reach and did not!). I would only do one per transaction. You can earn the reward more than once as long as they are in different transactions as far as I'm aware! (they are still working the kinks out of the program it seems).
    2. I've heard there might be a limit of 3 +UPR but I honestly don't know! The policy is not set in stone yet.
    3. the +UPR are right at the end of the receipt just like CVS!
    4. the b1g1 Reach is from the 5/16 Red Plum insert!

    Hope that helps! Good luck! Playing the drugstore game is fun when you figure out the rules! It too me a while to get the hang of it but now I love it!

  3. One more question. My friend just told me that I would not be able to get one item and use two coupons for it. Like if I was getting the Rembrandt toothpaste and I put a manufacture coupon and a video value coupon. I would need to put one more thing on the table so I would have the same number of items as I do coupons. Is that right??? ~Mindy

  4. Your friend might have told you the rules for Walgreens--they have a coupon/item ratio thing. Rite Aid doesn't! yay! You can use up to THREE coupons on an item if there is an in-ad coupon! Usually you will just use 1 manufacturer and 1 video values though! So 2 coupons for 1 item is totally fine at Rite Aid!
