How I got my newspapers for free this morning!

I really don't like paying for coupons...who does? So when I decide that I want to purchase more newspapers and Walgreens has them for .99 each, I try to purchase products with register rewards before I buy the newspapers so I can use the register rewards to get the newspapers. Here is what I did:

First Transaction:

6 Suave Deodorant, on sale 1.41
-(6) .50/1 MF Qs
Final Price: .91 ea
Got back $6 in register rewards for purchasing 6

Vitamin Shampoo, 3.99
Got back $4 in register rewards for purchasing

OOP: $10.60
Received: $10 in register rewards


Second Transaction:


10 Newspapers, .99 ea

Candy, .89 (Filler, must be at least .10)

-$10 in register rewards from transaction 1

OOP: .87

Did your paper have the Keebler insert? None of my papers received or bought in the Bellevue area received that insert...

No, I did not see the Keebler insert... It would have been nice!
