Did you do all your transactions in 1 trip? What do the abbreviations oop and RR mean?

I went one trip right around Midnight when the sale first started. There was no one in the store really and they had all the sale stuff in stock. My cashier was really nice and patient with me. oop means out of pocket and RR is Register Rewards, its like a catalina that prints out with your receipt with an amount on it. I got a $4 one a $10 one and a $2 one. It's money to use at Walgreens another week! Hopefully next week will have a nice sale so that I can use that Walgreen's "Money" on stuff that will give me More Walgreen's money and my goal is maybe never spend anymore of my money oop again there. But we will see.

How come you had to do 3 different transactions?

FrugalFreeLoader said...

Well doing three different transactions makes the out of pocket amount lower because you can use the register rewards from transaction number 1 to pay for transaction # 2 and so on. And most times the register rewards are limit one deal per transaction. So if I would have got 2 dental floss and 2 shampoos in one transaction, I may have only gotten credit for one of them and the other register rewards would not print.
