Here is my two transaction plan - what do you all think? Does it seem kosher?
I am starting with $10 RRs ($5 P&G, $5 non P&G):
1.99 Nivea Men (2.99-1.00Q) get 3RR
1.99 Colgate total (2.99-1.00Q) get 3RR
.99 Bic Disposable Razors (2.99-1.00Q) get 2RR
2.24 Centrum (3.24-1.00Q) get 3.25RR
1.49 Thermacare (2.49-1.00Q) get 2.50RR
.99 Right Guard (2.99-2.00Q) get 2.00RR
.44 7UP (.99-.55Q) get 1.00 RR
10.13 OOP +tax (pay with $10RRs) = EARN 16.75 RRs
.99 Olay BW (6.98 [comb. w/secret]-5.00Q) get 3.50 RR
.99 Secret Scent get 3.50 RR
1.99 Crest (2.99-1.00Q) get 3.00RR
3.49 Cottonelle 12pk (3.99-.50Q) NO RR
2.49 Scott Paper towels (3.99-1.50Q) NO RR
6 fillers (cheap)
9.95 OOP + tax (pay with (2) $3 RRs & (2) $2 RRs)
RRs still have from T1: $6.75
Earn RRs from T2: $10.00
i'm not much of a roller as you know by my posts. you have six fillers in the second transaction and were only using four RR's. so maybe you only need four fillers? i often have an exact coupon/item ratio and handing the RR last (so i don't have to use RR if i don't have to) often makes the register beep. so i tell the cashier to unscan a coupon, scan an RR and re-scan the coupon. somehow my register often likes that better. but i learned the hard way not to give RR first in case it's money you didn't really need to spend (overage on something i didn't expect or whatever). as to the rest of it...i'm lousy with who makes what! (manufacturer) - but, if you throw in extra fillers what the heck. it makes the register happier!
Lesson learned here ... if a person thinks they are only 99.999% right, wait for the experts to chime in! :bigthumb:
oh hell i'm no expert! wildforwags is though. i just ended up asking catalina one day and i know i've also done this by mistake a few times and it worked out well!
