Here's the low down. You have to purchase the item at sale price, then after you pay you will get a RR (Register Reward) for the amount of that item, not including sales tax. You can use that RR to purchase anything else in the store. You get a store coupon at the end of your order.
On the site, we talk about "rolling" the RR's. It works like this:
If you bought cookies for 2.99, paid for them, and got a 2.99 RR, you can then use the 2.99 on your next order. Let's say now you are buying Shampoo that's 2.99 before RR. You can use your RR from the cookies, then your out-of-pocket (OOP) would be 0. (or a small amt for tax depending on your state.)
Exception: RR's cannot be rolled over using a RR deal for the exact same item or on an item made by that same manufacturer. You may use the RR to pay, but another RR will not print.
You will have to check out using multiple transactions on the same trip (such as in my example) to make this work. For most of us that go regularly, we roll week-to-week. Meaning we'll "buy" all the free items using RR rewards from the previous week's purchase.
Check out the full Walgreens details under any of the weekly deals topics.
Hope this helped. Feel free to ask any more questions.
P.S. You can use Manufacturer's coupons on these deals too, making them a MM (money maker) i.e. Let's say you have a coupon for $1.00 off the cookies in the example above, you would then pay 1.99 but still get the 2.99 RR.

Walgreens can be tricky . It was the hardest one for me to learn. Hope I explain this right. Walgreens policy is that you can only have one mfr coupon for every item. Such as if I purchase three items I can use no more then three mfr coupons. Which is pretty standard. However, they lump register rewards in that same catergory. For example if I bought three packs of huggies and paid with three mfr coupons I would need what we call a filler item to pay with a register reward from a previous purchase. Usually we list inexpensive items each week to be used as fillers. the dollar amount of the item doesnt matter, like if you have a $3 rr you can grab like a chocolate cherry with your diapers in order to use three huggies cpn and a rr. Walgreen coupons do not count in this total. Just mfr and rr. So think #of mfr cpns + rr used to pay =# items. It can be tricky.
Like cabene said you cant pay with a register reward for the same product as it will not produce another rr. ITs like the registers way of limiting transactions, since your only allowed 1.
Also if your cpn says $1/2 when paying with rr consider that like 2 mfr cpns when keeping the total of mfr cpns and rr = to number of items.
Does that make sense? If not ask it took me a while to get it then it just clicked like ohhhhhh one night for me.
