With all due respect, aren't you counting your savings twice? You are rolling your RR to the next sale but you're really not up $2.06 when $15.94 came out of your pocket the remaining $18 RR applies the next deal otherwise you're counting it twice. Can anyone else explain this well? I'm not even sure I understand myself. But I had to quit doing tons of Walgreen's deals because I was telling myself I came out ahead when I had counted my RR twice.

Yes Kaylyndawn, the remaining $18 RRs will apply toward my next transactions so you could say that if I spent the $18RRs next time with no oop but tax, then everything was truly free. I wouldn't let the numbers screw you up so much...rolling RRs does saves you big time. I've rolled so many RRs in the last few years, I couldn't even begin to calculate how much I've saved. Well, I could but don't take the time. I never spend any more than what's in my budget to spend and my cupboards are I'd say I'm coming out ahead. ~Amanda

I think I thought of a better way to explain this. Yes, I spent $15.94 out of pocket. BUT I have $18 RRs remaining (over and above the ones I used toward the two transactions)which are like cash in my pocket (that I can use at Walgreens) so if I were to stop here, I would be $2.04 ahead of the game. BUT I will roll these RRs into more RR deals and then those into more RR deals so it just keeps going. If you try to make sure you always walk away from a transaction with more RRs than what you spent out of pocket, than you are always ahead. Does that make sense?
