@cjwoody Now that's the way to start a week - great deal - and now we know for future reference for the Walgreens shoppers that the $ comes off at the end. Thanks for confirming.
I thought about waiting til tomorrow after 9 AM - and putting it toward the mid-week, but I know my store, and they will run out quickly. So I got my little shop-on, and then spent a few hours with mom.
@FelskyNY Ahh yes… the good ol’ hold-out-for-the-next-bonus gamble 🎰🎰🎰 haha! It’s always safer to grab items while you can, although sometimes I do wait, especially if I feel like my gallery is dried up.
I decided to go for it at Target. I picked up the aleve deal, the poise,4 core bars to do the Ibotta deal. I did find out that you do have to get to the $20 at Target to get the gift card. Can't be not one penny short so I just picked up some cough drops for $1.69 for my daughter who is down with a cold right now. I made out pretty well so I'm happy
Poise$4.89-$3TC-$2IB(completed the poise $1bonus)=.11MM
4core bars $10-$5TC-$5IB=0
Ludens cough drops $1.69(to help make the $20 threshold)
I paid26.86(inclg tx)at the register-5GC-7IB-$14.41Fetch=.45 OOP. I did a bunch of scanning at Target and was way more than enough to.offset the .45. I accumulated nearly $4 bucks just from scanning.
Ideally I would have waited on the core bars for when the wkday bonus comes out tomorrow, but my son comes in tomorrow and we have back to back plans and won't be able to pull off any shopping in between so I went for it while I knew was still in stock.
Just remember - Fetch usually only reimburses you on the actual COST. So if you use points or coupons, the 100% value will decrease.
FWIW, this has never been my experience. I always get paid on the pre-coupon, pre-discount price. I have read that others had your experience, but once again it has not been mine.
@MeLMeL11 You can request a specific WGC payment, and the cashier should be able to adjust. I was automatically asked to a approve $20 WGC redemption on the pinpad, but I knew I could only use $3 WGC if I wanted to stay above the $20 spend threshold (in order to earn the extra $5 WGC). So I had the cashier revise it, and she did it without a problem.
@cjwoody well I was hoping that when I first started shopping there and earning rewards....but the last 2 or 3 times they tell me how much they can do, almost like it has to be in increments of 5 or something. I think I bought $17.00 in items and they said they could do $15.00, I had more than enough to pay the whole total ($50.00+) ...I didn't push the issue or ask. Maybe I will next time.
Thanks for the info...and congrats on the awesome deal! 😎👍
Walgreens cash can only be redeemed in certain increments; $1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $10, $20, $50. You can use less than what's in your "bank", but only to a point. So you wouldn't be able to redeem $15 or $18.
Which can be a real pain sometimes. If I have $15 available, I want to use it all!
