  • what are register rewards?

    register rewards (rr) are coupons that print from the catalina machine after you make a qualifying purchase.
    rr can be used "like cash" on a subsequent transaction.

  • how do you earn register rewards?

    buy the exact items advertised to receive rr. if the register's catalina machine is visible from the customer's side of the counter, you may want to check to see that the green light is on - showing that the machine should be working properly.

    please note, it has been reported that a price modification will stop rr from printing. however, catalina should still honor the deal (see "what if the expected register rewards don't print?" below)

  • is there a limit on register reward deals?

    each rr deal is limit 1 per transaction.
    fortunately, most stores do not limit transactions.

    according to the official walgreens coupon policy...
    "management reserves the right to limit the quantity of items purchased. customer and employee purchases of excessive quantities of advertised items is not permitted. an excessive quantity is any quantity above and beyond normal household usage."

    most walgreens stores do not enforce any limits, but ymmv.

  • how do you use register rewards?

    generally, you can use your rr like cash on your next purchase, but there are some exceptions.

    the fine print on rr's state that they cannot be used on tobacco, alcohol, tax, lottery tickets, money orders, stamps, dairy, or any gift cards or pre-paid cards. however, some stores still allow rr's to be used on some of these items, ymmv.

    as stated in the fine print, you cannot use more rrs and manufacturer coupons than number of items you are buying. as long as you are buying as many items as you have rr & manufacturer coupons, you should be able to use multiple rr. for example, if you wanted to use 5 man. coupons and 5 register rewards, your transaction would need to have at least 10 items. if one of your coupons is $x off 2 or a bogo, it will probably apply to both items and you'll need an additional item to use a register reward as well. store coupons do not affect how many manufacturer and rr's you can use.

    you cannot "roll" rr's into the same deal 99% of the time. for example, if you use an rr from kellogg's to purchase more kellogg's items, you will not get another rr.

  • what if the expected register rewards don't print?

    if you purchased the right items but didn't get your rr, you can contact the catalina company.

    another option is to ask the store associates to fix it in store. in most cases, when an rr doesn't print it is because the catalina printer is out of ink/paper or is malfunctioning in some way. some stores may be willing to re-ring the qualifying items at another register where catalina machine is working or issue credit to you on a walgreens return card or in walgreens cash. if not, you still have the option of just returning the items or having the entire transaction voided.
