Would you like to know how much I spent on what you see pictured? $1.93 after register rewards. I also have $45 in Dale and Thomas Gift Cards.
I wanted to let your readers know that there is currently a glitch in the system at Walgreens when doing the Robitussin deal. It is producing double Register Rewards. I printed 5 of The Rob. coupons, bought 5 bottles @ $4 each, and it printed the $10 Register reward, and 2 $5 Register Rewards. Profit of $10. They will probably catch this error soon but it is a great deal while it lasts.
Since I wanted to rent a movie using the Free Redbox code and Walgreens is on the way I decided to give this a try. So in my first transaction I bought 3 Robitussins and two Dimetapps. I paid $11 out of pocket and got $20 in Register Rewards. Then I bought three of the Popcorn, Indiana Gourmet Popcorn boxes for $2.49 (My store is already at 75% off clearance on the holiday items) and five of the cloth gift bags. I used $10 in register rewards and paid $0.93 in cash. Each of the gourmet popcorn boxes have a $15 gift card to Dale and Thomas that expires on 3/31/09. I can use those for a birthday present between now and then.
Edited to add: There are two possibilities of why this may be happening: either there is a glitch in the way the promotion was programmed. Or there could be a second unadvertised promotion running along side. This happened recently with a Children’s Tylenol offer when a weekly register rewards offer coincided with an offer running all month long.
If you would like to take advantage of these situation please remember this: If this is a glitch it may get fixed sooner or later. So take that into account if by the time you hit the store you only get $10 in Register Rewards instead of $20. But if it is any consolation, you are still getting the medicine for cost of tax only.
This is a sample transaction.
I noticed I could only print three of each coupons per computer. I will keep my eye out on this deal to update you as soon as I find out, if it is a glitch, when the glitch gets fixed.
Angie has a couple of other scenarios on her blog too.
