    glad I asked! Thanks!

    If you buy them in separate transactions you will get both RR's. Do not use the RR earned from the first one to pay for the second one or you will not get the 2nd RR because both products are from the same manufacturer. Once their rewards program becomes active on Sunday, they will probably start limiting deals like they do at CVS and RA.

    WG: Infusium 23 8 or 16 oz, Pert Plus 2 in 1 25.4 oz
    Sale: $4.99
    RR: $3 Register Rewards
    Coupons: There should be $1 Infusium and $1.50/2 Pert Plus coupons in the 9/9 SS inserts
    Total after $1 coupon and RR = .99 (good deal!)

    with this offer, I have 2 of each coupon. Am I only able to receive (1) $3 RR even if I buy more of these products?
