Scenario #3 (Personal Care products)
Buy 2 sets of Dr. Scholl's massaging gel Insoles $11.49 each=$22.98
Buy 1 Soft Soap Nutri Serum $3.99
Use 2 $2 Dr. Scholls coupons from here
Use 1 $2 Soft Soap coupon (NO longer available)
BUT then get back a $5 Register Reward for spending $25, a $10 Register Reward for purchasing Dr. Scholls and a $3.99 Register Reward for the Soft Soap.
Final cost all for FREE!
Remember that these scenarios are just to get ya thinkin'! My advice is to have a few scenarios written down before you go. That way your calculations will be more accurate and you'll most likely spend less money out of pocket. Also, remember that the best thing to do is try and roll different Register Reward deals. For example in the first scenario I provide, you could use the $5 Pop-Tarts Register Reward and $1 Velveeta Register Reward to lower your out of pocket expense for Scenario #2.
One more thing to note is that when you are using Register Rewards be aware of your coupon to item ratio. Register Rewards ARE manufacturer coupons, so they need an items to attach themselves too. For example, if you're buying 3 products and already have manufacturer coupons for each item, then you'll need an inexpensive "filler" item to use an additional Register Reward in this transaction. I hope that makes sense.
If you all have any great deal scenarios to share, then please let us know in the comment section!
