Roll Your Store Rewards
- Buy 1 Snickers bar for $2.00
- Redeem last week’s $1.00 ExtraBucks Rewards.
- Pay $1.00 OOP (out of pocket)
- Earn a new $1.00 ExtraBucks Rewards to be used in your next scenario.
In our second scenario, we’ll do multiple transactions as well as add some coupons into the mix. Multiple transactions can be done one right after the other. It is the optimal way to roll your store rewards and spend the least amount of money out of pocket (OOP). Just advise the cashier that you’d like to do two or more orders. *I try to do this only when the store isn’t busy or there isn’t a line at the register – couponer’s courtesy.
Hefty Trash Bags are on sale for $7.99. You have a manufacturer’s (MFR) coupon and your ExtraBuck from the previous scenario. You will also earn $3.00 ExtraBucks for purchasing the trash bags.
Revlon lip glosses are on sale 2/$12. You have a CVS MFR coupon for $3 off $9 Revlon cosmetic purchase and a CVS $3 off $10 makeup purchase. You will also earn $4.00 ExtraBucks for purchasing the two lip glosses.
- Buy 1 box of Hefty Extra Strong Trash Bags for $7.99
- Use 1 MFR coupon for $1.00 off Hefty trash bags
- Use your $1.00 ExtraBuck reward from above
- Pay $5.99 OOP
- Earn $3.00 ExtraBucks Rewards.
- Buy (2) Revlon lip glosses at $2/$12
- Use the CVS MFR coupon to receive $3 off
- Use the CVS store coupon to receive another $3 off
- Redeem the $3 ExtraBucks rewards from the Hefty transaction above
- Pay $3.00 OOP for the 2 lip glosses
- Earn $4.00 ExtraBucks Rewards from the purchase
If you’ll notice, you actually came out ahead in this deal by $1. This is considered a “moneymaker” or MM.
*If you read the fine print on the CVS coupons, you’ll notice that it says “one purchase-based coupon per transaction”. We are actually using two of these in this second transaction BECAUSE the REVLON coupon is actually a MANUFACTURER coupon (see the MFR circled in red)? If there hadn’t been a MFR on it, we wouldn’t be able to combine the two on this scenario.
